Obama Has Fundamentally Changed America

Monday, October 7, 2013

Candidate Obama promised "...to fundamentally change America."  He has.  We have not suffered racism like this since before the Civil Rights Act. The U.S.A. has never had its credit downgraded. And not since President Clinton has it been this easy to find a flagrant lie in most of his speeches.  NPR said Democrats lie more that conservatives and Democrats do not mind being lied to.

But back to the point of the government shut down. The U.S.A. has never had a POTUS who refused to negotiate.  The last shut down cost the Republicans three House seats but they gained two Senate seats.  And within two years the U.S.A. had a balanced budget. Of course Clinton took all the credit.  Clinton was and is a known liar but I do not believe he hates America as our present POTUS seems to.

Why?  If we do not have the debt ceiling raised, the U.S.A. defaults.  Obama let this happen before; he seems to want it desperately now. Why: to downgrade America; therefore "fundamentally changing America.  But is this what most Americans want?

A new axiom is the low information voter.  The majority of those who vote are in this category.  They vote for free stuff and short term gratification.  What these low info voters do not realize is that America has two futures: one is default as Greece or one party dictatorship like Cuba.  Either way, no more free stuff, no more or very little liberty, and a changed America that our forefathers hoped would never happen.
