Obama’s rejection of the Constitution – In accusing Americans of “clinging to their religion and their guns,” Barack Obama was in essence complaining those Americans are clinging to their freedoms. They are clinging to the source of those freedoms, the Constitution. He would cast some sort of negative connotation to Americans clinging to their freedoms and the Constitution. His lust for power to push us to socialism and beyond creates disdain for the checks and balances our founding fathers built into the Constitution to restrain tyrants.
Obama is demeaning people for desires they have, valued by our Founding Fathers. In the First Amendment of our Constitution, it states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the exercise there of…” The Second Amendment states, “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
In Obama’s elitist intellectual mind, he and his ilk of intellectuals are better qualified to control the lives of the American People than we are to control our own lives! This is tyranny! This is the polar opposite to the vision and confidence Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, Madison and the other founding fathers had for the American People.
President Barack Obama’s declaration capitalism has failed is just one more incident of ignorant rhetoric of a socialist sympathizer. If anything has failed it is big government socialism he wants introduced to the United States. Capitalism has served our country well over 230 years, if you falsely blame the financial meltdown of 2007 on capitalism.
The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 employing the socialist government Obama seeks. European countries economies are collapsing having implemented and extensively practiced the socialism Obama wants for the United States. Their economies are imploding one by one, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. Yet Obama pushes the United States in the direction of these failures. Who is ignoring the facts?
One has to ask, was the Great Depression a failure of capitalism or the implementation of big government policies of Franklin Roosevelt that stretched a recession, which in our history usually ran about a year, into a depression which continued for ten years. Jack Cashill (Popes and Bankers), Thomes Sowell and Jim Powell (FDR’s Folly) all point out the myth of FDR getting us out of the Great Depression! Even Roosevelt’s Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morganthau Jr. declared before congress FDR’s policies a failure.
Was it capitalism that failed in our most recent financial meltdown, or socialist policies like Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac? It was years of liberal abuse of government spending that caused the economic meltdown of 2007 and Obama’s massive socialist spending that has made this recession much deeper? This is tyranny!
