The President of the United States is holding America hostage. He refuses to negotiate even though Republicans have practically surrendered and given in to his every demand. With an obedient and loyal media by his side, the president has twisted words and outright lied to the American people in order to advance his broader agenda. In the past few days, Republicans have offered Democrats everything they could possibly desire including Obamacare untouched, sequester cuts restored, and the federal government open for business. Wanting to inflict the greatest damage on the Republican brand, and wanting to inflict the greatest amount of pain on the American people, the president has become the antithesis of what he pledged during his presidential campaigns and is nothing more than a dictator who threatens to permanently damage this country's economic and political standing in the world to ensure that he gets everything he wants.
This is Obama's America. A nation of beggars in which nearly 100 million are unemployed and nearly 50 million are on food stamps. Barricades are erected to keep war veterans from visiting memorials. Roadblocks are set up to prevent citizens from visiting privately-owned businesses and historical sites that are not under the purview of the federal government. Police in riot gear walk the streets of Washington, D.C. to keep the people in check. The government is forcing people to purchase a product under the threat of fines. Employers are laying off workers or reducing their hours to comply with ObamaCare. Hospitals are letting doctors go while other doctors are leaving the profession. The greatest economic system and health care system in the world is on the precipice of a collapse. The people are hopeless and desperate and ashamed.
And yet, this all plays right into the hands of a man who set out to "fundamentally transform" the United States of America. Did we not listen when he spoke those words? Were we so enamored with the prospect of our first black president that we neglected to look into his past and refused to thoughtfully consider the words coming out of this mouth? While some dismiss the problems in his administration as incompetence, this underestimates the man who sits in the White House. This is not a president who doesn't fully understand what's taking place around him. In fact, he is perfectly comfortable in playing golf while the columns of our civilization crumble and fall.
As long as the progressive-socialist media are willing to buttress this president, to lie for him, and to protect him from all charges, he can do what he pleases. You see, this isn't just about health care. We are now beginning to see just what ObamaCare is all about. Barack Hussein Obama is the Trojan Horse that we let through the gates and ObamaCare is just one of the surprises lurking within. Whether or not the health care exchanges work is irrelevant, as long as the other ninety-percent of its initiatives still go into effect. In fact, some have argued that the president's signature health care program is not supposed to work in order to pave the way for a more sinister form of socialized medicine.
Right now, whether or not we all get a health care plan is the least of our worries. We have a president who is becoming dangerous in his persistent desire to force the rest of us to accede to his demands. The fact that the president would reject a "clean" offer to open the government and to fund ObamaCare shows just how far he is willing to go, and how much he is willing to distort the truth in order to get there.
