How did he get elected?
Our socialist president
While on the campaign trail President Obama said that it would be good for everyone if we "spread the wealth" around. Afterwards in 2009 he did just that. President Obama passed an economic stimulus package that cost the tax payers 787 billion dollars. this package that was chalked full of bogus earmarks passed even after Nancy Pelosi's immortal words "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what's in it."
To this day our representatives still can not tell us where all the money went, and to this day I am amazed as to why she was not fired on the spot by the American people. He gave trillions of dollars to the auto industry and implemented a cash for clunkers program that failed miserably. The term Hegelian dialectic comes to mind when we look back at the way that this crisis came into play. Wall street was afraid that the stock market would crash, thus a crisis was created out of nothing more than a hunch, the people needed a quick solution to the crisis, and Obama came to the rescue with a stimulus package.
Obama holds the record for having spent the most money while in office and it hasn't even been a full term. He clings to the ideology that redistributing the wealth to the poor will solve our nations unemployment issues yet the unemployment percentages in America continue to climb. In 2008 the unemployment rate was over 7.5%, and after Obama took office it rose to 9%.
There are many viable solutions that can help the US economy one that comes to my mind is to put a bigger tax on all imports from foreign countries. When the prices of foreign products are compatible with American products we will again be able to compete with foreign countries and American businesses will be able to thrive.
While on the campaign trail senator Obama made this remark; "If my daughters make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."
It is staggering to know that America was so willing to look over some of this man's large ideological flaws in order to get him into office. It is a fact that most abortions in America are performed not because the life of the mother is in danger, or as a result of rape or incest. the fact is that we are using abortion as a means of birth control, because Susie didn't make Johnny wear a condom millions of babies have to die each year.
To the proponents of planned parenthood he made this declaration; "There will always be people, many of goodwill, who do not share my view on the issue of choice. On this fundamental issue, I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield."
Planned parenthood is the largest contributor to the abortion industry, each year our tax dollars are given to these murderers regardless of the opinions of the people.
on March 23, 2010 the president signed into law the "Patient protection and affordable care act" Make no mistake this is socialized medicine creeping it's way into America. When we observe this practice in other countries it is blatantly obvious that it is a bad system. This is why it is accurate to say that Obama is a moderate socialist. But for some reason his supporters continue to deny this fact even though he has proven time and again that he is indeed a socialist.
The intention of the bill is to provide medical care to every American, and to those who do not want it they don't have to get it. But the reality is that when employers get the option of having this cheaper form of medical insurance for their employees they will be foaming at the mouth in wait for this program to take effect, and millions of Americans will be kicked off of their original medical programs.
This president has mocked and degraded the bible and praised the Koran. This sentiment has spurred an ongoing hatred towards Christianity as the media the schools, and politicians continue to vilify the tenants of Christianity.
He has boldly declared that this is no longer a christian nation, and the philosophies of Christianity continue to be ousted from the public through means of litigation.
Tolerance has been preached by the hard left who tout the rights of people who practice unorthodox or minority religions, or for those who seek alternate lifestyles, however when people attack Christianity not a word is spoken from the liberals in their defense.
Obama was also a member of Jeremiah Wright's church. He eventually had to sever his relationship with this church after several inflammatory remarks were made by Wright while he was on the campaign trail.
our credit rating
While his goal is to downgrade America from being a global superpower the only thing he has accomplished is downgrading our national credit rating to AA+. Naturally the liberals claimed it was all the Tea party's fault, and not the liberals unwillingness to solve the debt crisis. Obama had no plan to solve this issue, he just let congress go at it for a couple of weeks when they all should have been discussing this months ago.
He incessantly blames Bush for all of our financial woes despite the fact that predatory lending bottomed out the housing market because his predecessor Bill Clinton thought that every American deserves to own a home.
