President Obama is very intellectual and charming, seldom showing emotions. He has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing otherwise. He'll say one thing but heed what his actions are.
The President came to Washington to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA after Great Britain or Canada.
Among his main goals are to have the federal government control energy, public education and national healthcare. Free college education is his goal. Most disturbing is Obamacare. If you provide it free and add 46 million people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the cost to taxpayers would be astronomical. The only way to control costs under Obamacare is with massive rationing of services, such as in Canada ...Lord help us.
He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. Few, if any, have ever managed a private sector enterprise. BHO is not a socialist; rather, he's a far-left progressive, bent on radically rearranging our marvelous Republic into something that would be unrecognizable by our Founding Fathers
Mr. Obama's apology tour several years ago was a prime example of how he sees our beloved country; As an imperialistic nation that has been arrogant and aggressive, rather than the great, exceptional and noble nation that it is. Notice that he did exclude Israel. Fast and Furious and the Benghazi bungling is just a taste of the President's inept lack of leadership.
His regime has handed out many millions of borrowed dollars to companies such Solyndra, A123, Tesla and now, Abound Solar that have gone down the drain or are circling it as well as Fisker who took their manufacturing operation to Finland.
Most Republicans are yearning for another Reagan but there will probably never be another. Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and those with similar ideals are the future of the party. We need to return to lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, constitutionality and State's Rights.
The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or even worse. No country has ever spent itself into prosperity. The main stream Media is giving President Obama, Senator Reid and Nancy Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. Very quickly the bill is coming due and people will realize that huge bailouts didn't work, nor has the stimulus package. Megadollar payoffs to President Obama's allies, unions and the Congressional left, to gain support for his "progressive" agenda.
I sincerely hope and pray that this will really get you thinking about what's happening in Washington. There is a left-wing revolution going on. We must return our country to Ronnie's "Shining City on the Hill" before it's far too late.
