Barack Obama: The fault of the right.

My fellow American’s, Barack Obama is our President and it is our fault. This may come as a shock, but really it shouldn’t because after all we are the party of responsibility. This isn’t where I say it was solely Bush’s fault and Reagan was our strongest defense against an Obama presidency; no it really started with the parents of baby boomers.

Dwight D. Eisenhower was good to us. Eisenhower’s example as a general was extraordinary more to the point his leadership in the White House even more remarkable. Eisenhower knew how to handle opposition with grace and an invisible hand. It was the television that ruined us; superficiality crept in through our eye sockets and began dismantling critical thinking skills one synaptic fire at a time.

Lo and behold a handsome, very young and inexperienced statesman (familiar territory?) became our 35th President. Immediately Khrushchev began toying with JFK and he had to prove his meddle. With conviction I give him the benefit that he found the intestinal fortitude to back Nikita down but it was a comfort too close to call for our nation. With the tragedies of tragedies to unfold, we lost a President and gained the mother of all spendthrifts. Our government and its powers would continue to experience exponential growth under both party banners.

It is here where I may lose some of you. Had the nation not prospered equally for all under Eisenhower? No, it didn’t, great work was to be done that should have been the boon of Republican’s, but Lyndon Baines Johnson took the credit in the name of JFK to sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We have been proselytizing the bills true senatorial support for years; we might as well have bludgeoned everyone, for it still fell on deaf ears. This was the tide that turned conservatism over to the left. We didn’t fight the good fight with vigor; we began to let the other side shout us down. Parents and our grandparents turned a blind eye to leftist infiltration of the media, the university systems and ultimately our government. We lost a war of facts against emotional rhetoric.

Christians, conservatives, even moderates let the extreme Marxist loving, egalitarian decreeing leftist value system teach our children and our children’s children. We could have said no in the sixties, we could have demanded to know what the education curriculum was, one that should have taught America’s core values and not those of elitist “peer review only” ideology. On our watch we let big Labor Unions grow to unmitigated power whores. My fellow Americans we are reaping what we allowed to be sowed. God is being taken out of every government office the ACLU can pry him out of. Our elementary school children are learning how to dress a condom on a banana. The will of the people goes overturned, twice, in California, and we have an out of control U.S. border that States do not have the right to protect, no check that, are being sued for trying to protect. Our government owns banks, car companies and our healthcare. I have a question for you.

Do you want your country back? Do you want to see a return to ethical policy and moral rule? Turn off the reality shows, pick up your history books, register all of your family members and get in the game. We can take back change. Let’s take back our America.

Vietnamvet68, thank you for reading my hub. Not sure where you studied history, we were well beyond the Iron Age when the puritans landed. Our country has been developing quite well despite a few wars and social set backs under both types of leadership. Dwight D. Eisenhower didn’t propose using stones to defeat Nazi Germany. Funny, I didn’t see Ronald Reagan asking for legislation outlawing citizens from owning stick built homes, with air conditioning and [gasp] turning their thermostats to whatever bloody temperature they wanted. You cannot say the same for ‘our’ current President.

You are after all entitled to your opinion because a Republican President shot down the “Fairness Doctrine,” so who is blind to who’s rights my friend?

I"m not sure where you were born either, but let me tell you little wet behind the ears boy, I lived history. Eisenhower was the last great Republican president we had, Regan was a gopher. Think what you wish and believe what you want..

Veitnamvet68, thank you for your acknowledgment that such a thing as a “Great Republican President” can exist. Thank you for your service to ‘our’ country. God blessed the land we live in, but not for much longer if the liberals succeed in removing our maker’s name. Mankind has many faults to be sure, but I will cast my lot with Republican’s who know how to be respectful of person, property and do not rely on controlling history, facts or if all else fails, name calling.

What is also great about America is how much legal immigrants love this country. I would never impugn the character of those who toil their entire lives just for the chance to legally come to our shores and pursue that dream of happiness; if only we all could be so grateful. Foreign born or seven generations later, it is an idea that still makes this the greatest nation on God’s green earth.

I surely agree with all you wrote. The Hub is brilliant! The cultural marxism of the Frankfort School has saturated our schools, universities, and media—exactly as planned back in the 1920s.

Hi James,

thank you for stopping by. You are right, I should have dug farther back, but the point is all the same, we LET it happen. Thank you sir.

Are you HONESTLY purporting that God should be part of government, or are you just trolling? God was never supposed to be IN any office.

You guys on Reddit act like a bunch of mean kids who won’t share their toy. Do I have to post my credentials before I can link, is that alright with you?

Separation of church and state isn’t separation of beliefs from brain. Leftist ideology is a belief and a practiced religion, its called belief in big government. That is fine and acceptable for those who are sincere and want that, they feel righteous for their cause. Those who are religious have the same deep sincere beliefs they live by, which you cannot separate from self. Separation of church and state was designed to keep all practices free, not to ban all practices from the public sphere. God is in mans heart, you cannot separate that.
