Obama; The Right Man For America, Wrong Ideology

Like most of Americans watching the Presidential elections of 2009, I was more curious and anxiously excited about having a black man represent America as the United States’ President.  With so many Americans and U. S Citizens openly expressing that it was time for the nation to be represented by a black man, I had to question aloud, have we as a nation “overcome”?  Had we as a nation overcome the notion that blacks were not intelligent enough or too inferior to be president?  Could we as a nation finally put the shameful and tragic period of our nation’s history of black-American slavery in the past and finally give the credit that we as a nation truly deserves for providing blacks, people of all color, more wealth and economic opportunity here as in no other nation on the planet? Could we at long last have a shining example that as a black-American you can be anything that you set your dreams on, even president of the United States?  But, even after learning that his mother was a devout leftist socialist and that his two fathers came from socialist countries, hearing his interview referring to the Constitution of “a charter of negative liberties”, because he saw that the Constitution limited the government too much, and reading in his book that he favored communist ideology and idols as he grew up and in college, I grew more anxious than anything else.  But I still hoped like a child awaiting Santa Claus to come deliver my gift, to find out that was my mother and father placing the gifts under the tree.  And not one of the gifts was what I truly wanted; At all!  I was greatly disappointed.

Just as I was emotionally crushed in not getting the jet pack that I saw the Robinsons on “Lost In Space” fly around on for me to fly to elementary school, I am more disappointed in the lost opportunity that Barack Obama offered to many blacks, and all ethnicities in America, and around the world, to be the one to set things off on the road for a better America, and to highlight it’s goodness and be a beacon for others to follow.  There may not be another such opportunity in my life time.

I believe that the average American would be hard press to not find Obama’s charm, looks, hip and charismatic presence, golden tongue, and picturesque family, appealing, and may even have you reminiscing about another such man, John F. Kennedy.  But when you review the 8 years of Mr. Obama’s tenure as president it will be his radical leftist progressive political ideology that has made this man an alien to the silent American majority and a cancer to his Party, both nationally and federally; and he’s definitely no J.F.K.

Following Barack Obama’s first presidential election, Newsweek in 2009 infamously shouted on it’s front page “We Are All Socialist Now”, maybe in mind, but certainly no in heart, yet.  Measuring from the results of the total policy rebuttal of the most unabashed leftist progressive U.S citizen ever elected as president since Woodrow Wilson by the voters, there heart of Americanism still beats, though lightly.

Obama was, and is, a pure ideologue first, and a politician distant second.  When he got elected major polls showed that jobs and economy where first and foremost on American’s minds.  And the election of 2016 major polls show that the economy and jobs are still foremost on the minds of Americans.  It is clear that it was not the economic health of the nation that he targeted for fundamental transformation, but it’s social identity. Lets just take a look at the accomplishments of president Obama:

  • March 2010, months after becoming president, signed The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), i.e., Obamacare – the most sweeping and costly government expansion into American healthcare since 1965 Medicare & Medicaid.
  • July 2010, Obama signs the most sweeping takeover of the U.S financial system with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, costing approx. costs to $24 billion in compliance-related expenses and 61 million paperwork hours. [7/2015]
  • In February 2011 Obama ordered his Justice Department to cease defending the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, that strictly defined marriage a between one man and one woman. [2/2011] It was later struck down by the Supreme Court in June 2013.
  • November 2014 Obama signs Executive Order effectively granting legal status to over 11 MILLION ILLEGAL Immigrants. [12/2014]
  • The Obama Administration has added $108 BILLION in annual regulatory cost. Costing $784 million every day the federal government was open for business in 2015 for Americans. [1/2016]
  • The number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 14,573,000 under his rule. [1/2017]

Just imagine if Mr. Obama would have sought to be a shining example as to what is possible as a son of African in America, rather than apologize for the nation’s greatness? Had he sought to improve the wealth and status of citizens on the low end of the economy by emphasizing, low taxation and government regulation, personal self-reliance and self-responsibility, civics, and increasing economic literacy throughout the nation? If had he sought to mimic J.F.K by challenging the educational institutions to focus on the sciences to make the nation tops in the world?  And what if he challenged the nation to boldly harvest the abundance of the nation’s natural resources, natural gas, oil, coal, etc.?  Yeah, imagine.

There is no question to the even most passive observer that Mr. O’s grand agenda was to permanently make the federal government the American people’s daddy and to shred the cultural fabric that has bound us together for some 200 plus years.  And he has succeeded in many ways like no one could have imagined possible in 2009.  But at what cost?  To both his Party as well as the nation?  The Democrat Party has lost BIG during Mr. O’s reign, federally and nationally, down over 10% in the Senate, over 19% in the House, over 20% in the State Legislatures, and an astounding plus 35% in State Governorships.  The very fact that the U.S Citizens and American voters have sent a very clear message that we are not totally ready for blatant socialism, just yet, is promising.  The question is do we know and understand why?

The charactership of Barack Obama was visually pleasing and accepted.  He represented hope for a better future and change from an ugly past. Little attention or vigorous objection was paid to what he was actually saying or the consequences of his action and motives.  And we seemingly cared little of the specifics.  But unless the American people reignite genuine reverence for what makes America exceptionally unique and what makes being an American special, i.e., the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, there will be another character presented to us boasting grand promises that he will whisk our deepest fears and worries away, who posses unvetted motives and idelology intuitively repugnant to Americanism that will lead the nation to depths of social and economic poverty that will be inescapable.

The Sexual-Orientation & Illegal-Immigration Movement Are the Greatest Moral Issues in America in Generations: They will forever define this nation’s moral identity.

Here we go again. We are purposely being distracted from real issues that can actually bring this nation out of the worst economic downturn since the ’29 Depression to expend energies on an issue that wasn’t on anyone’s map before the Media and the Administration put it there. Kinda like the healthcare “crisis” that made it crucial for the government to ram Obama-care down our throats; or the financial “crisis” that made it crucial that the government pass the Dodd-Frank financial over haul with scant public exposure.

Now Mexico being located to the south of us and like-gender individual’s relationships have now been thrust up the sleeping American people for yet another “crisis” that the United States government has to solve. But unlike Obama-care and Dodd-Frank that will have negative economic reverberations for generations to come, the issues regarding the illegal-immigration, of Mexicans in particularly, and same-sex marriage is a seismic social earthquake of mega-tone proportions that will forever change the nation’s moral landscape.

The government directly creating a crisis and or creating the environment for a crisis for it to inevitably offer the solution to move the American people into a direction that benefits its longing for power and control is nothing new. A very good argument can be made that the move of many Black Americans from free man to slave was for the political benefit of the government, specifically the Democrat Party, in concert with big business and the Church. The solution of the government was then to prescribe a new political status and classification, Civil Rights and the U.S Citizen. And we all know how unified we are due to that. Don’t we?

Maybe its only fitting that we as a nation find ourselves again struggling with the government attempting to provide another solution dealing with governmental status and classification, whether someone is to be identified as being legally illegible to receive government privileges and how much the government can benefit from such illegibility. Don’t fool yourself folks the government increasing its tax base and expanding its power and control over its Citizens is what this is really all about. .

Several liberal Media pundits have already spilled the beans about how the government would financially benefit by reclassifying marriage to include same-sex persons. What many of us may not be aware of is the fact that gays and lesbians generally earn more money than Hetero-Sexuals. Also, it has been reported that reforming the immigration system would actually cost the Social Security Administration Billions due to the fact as things stand now though millions of illegal-immigrants pay into Social Security, the Administration doesn’t have to pay out to them. Wonder why we don’t see millions of illegal-immigrants demanding to be U.S Citizens or millions of gays and lesbians demanding to be regulated by the government like their hetero-sexual counterparts marching across the nation? Its simply because this is a government initiated cause. And when the people most of the several states have voted they have fervently voted against illegal-immigration and the redefining of marriage to include same-sex persons.

There are two facts that are indisputable regarding these two issues legally according to the government’s own law, and they are in Black’s Law Dictionary 2ndEd. marriage is defined, as distinguished from the agreement to marry and from the act of becoming married, Is the civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, for the discharge to each other and the community of the duties legally incumbent on those whose associationis founded on the distinction of sex.” And according to theFederal Immigration and Nationality Act Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii), “Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . .. fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.” If these are laws and precedents that have lasted for as long as this nation has been in existence, and now all of the sudden the government itself is seeking to subjugate them, rather than have an open and honest discussion about them with us the people to possibly have the laws changed or amended, one has to ask, what is really going on? The government chooses to engage in dishonest, divisive, and manipulative propaganda.The government chooses to not reduce the red tape, onerous regulations, and massive bureaucracy that causes the horrific backlog that keeps so many wanting and qualified immigrants from LEGALLY coming to and staying in America, and not to rightly enforce its current immigration laws. And it chooses to not simply leave marriage defined as what it has always been in this country and dating as far back as Ancient Rome – a union between a man and a woman to promote procreation and a stable society – and create another political status, Civil Union, with its own governance and qualifications. It chooses to seek to have intellectually vacant arguments and attempts to redefine terms and words such as, what is is. What is a man? What is legal? And what is marriage? Despite the government’s propaganda, this issue is not about “equality”, but political status and classification for both the financial and political benefit of the government. As Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas truthfully stated, “Government cannot make us equal; it can only recognize, respect, and protect us as equal before the law.”

It is interesting that the one political party that has been the instigator in America’s most divisive social movements has been the Democratic Party. And like in the past, a combination of politics, big business, and the church, are instigative parties in these movements.  I’m not saying. I’m just saying.

The great hazard of frivolously and loosely choosing to redefining words and customs that have stood for generations and centuries with little regard of the consequences to the society as a whole is to question is anything sacred? Are there any longer any absolutes? Can we any longer definitively claim what is acceptable and not acceptable? How do we stand up and say no if no is no longer clearly definable? How can we then say this is right and this is wrong or that this is good and this bad? And is is is?

Alexis de Tocqueville once prophetically stated, “America is great because America is good. If America ever ceases to be good it will cease to be great.” This is what this battle is about. America’s moral soul. And how our next generations will view issues of morality. In truth, there is little light between what effects social issues and what effects economic issues. They are both of the same stick. It is only our fundamentally sound moral compass that keeps us from one day awakening to a nation engulfed in flames. It is ultimately up to us to chose.
