This political season has been rife with the vacuous and gossamer term “change”. If you believe that Barack Hussein Obama will “change” things, I am here to tell you that he would “change” some things and some things would remain the same.
Here are but a few of the things that Obama would like to “change.”
Obama would like to socialize the nation’s health care. Anyone who would be interested in seeing an accurate template as to the proven perilous affects of such an egregious idea, please refer to England or Canada. If you do not wish to do the leg work, I will save you the time and suggest that such “change” will leave you with nothing but “change” in your bank account..
Senator Obama would like to “change” the way the United States fights the War on Terror. Obama would like to “negotiate” with “rouge dictators and despots”. As opposed to eliminating them in the old fashioned way with bullets and bombs, Obama would much prefer to bore them to death with excessive adjectives and adverbs.
The United States has never elected a President with only 143 days of “experience” as a U.S. Senator. The United States has never elected a President that was chummy with an avowed domestic terrorist. The United States has never had a President whose personal Pastor made a weekly habit of damning the United States. The United States has never had a First Lady that took so long to finally be proud of her country. Never has the United States considered the office of the Presidency to be part of the Job Corps program.
Senator Obama’s Vice Presidential candidate has said that paying taxes is “patriotic”. With that as your patriotic parameter, Obama would like to seize 28% of the profit from all home sales. He would also like to seize a 39.6% dividend tax. He would like to raise the income taxes of average Americans anywhere from $2,500.00 to $7,800.00 per year. Obama would like to restore the Inheritance tax. He is proposing new taxes on homes over 2,500 square feet, (except his, of course..) a natural resources consumption tax, new taxes on retirement accounts and new gasoline taxes. Mind you, these are the ones that he is TALKING about NOW, just try to imagine how many more will be raised if he is given the opportunity.
Here are just some of the things that he won’t “change”.
The festering cesspools known as the public schools will continue to betray the lowest classes. Obama, like all good liberals, genuflects before the NEA who in turn “advise” their members to “Vote Democratic” during each and every election cycle. The abortion pogrom will continue on meanwhile the liberal phonies will croak about the “genocide” in Darfur. The first disease brought about through individual volition and made sacrosanct by a distinct “special interest group” will receive more federal funding for research than heart disease. The progressive “engendered species list” containing the homeless, the poor, the “working” poor, will all receive a “humane” increase in the alms justifiably removed from those who insensitively have the audacity to take care of themselves and their family.
As a true devotee to the liberal necromancy, Obama will only appoint fellow travelers to the courts and most assuredly to the Supreme Court. Justice Stevens is now 88 years of age, Ginsberg is 75, Breyer is 70 as well.. The chances are that he will have at least one opportunity to appoint a Supreme Court justice. Obama will have a Democratic House, a Democratic Senate and there is a distinct possibility that he will oversee a decidedly leftist Supreme Court. That is not taking into account the judges that he would place in the appellate courts, the various courts of appeals and the federal courts.
A little over two years ago, the unemployment rate was 4.5%. Gasoline was about $2.00 a gallon. Just a little over two years ago, the Dow Jones Industrial averages hit 14,280 points.
Just about two years ago during the mid term elections of 2006, the voters of this nation turned the House of Representatives over to the Democrats by a margin of 233 Democrats to 202 for the Republicans. The Senate as well went 51-49 for the Democrats. The progressive pollution of “change” was in the air.
In just about two years time since, the Democrats have overseen an over 4,000 point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, gasoline is nearly $4.00 a gallon, the unemployment rate has gone up over 10%, and the Congressional approval rating is in the single digits. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been involved in an incestuous relationship that brought about the biggest single day drop in the history of the Dow Jones Industrials.
This is just a small sampling of what the Democrats have accomplished in the last two years. How much more damage could (and would) they inflict if they are left unchecked over the next two years with a Democratic President, House and Senate? This dear friends is just some of the “change” that we got, there is no telling how bad the “change” will be that we will get.
The next mid term election would be held in the year 2010. That is a prophetic date. Separate those numbers, break it down and include two great big “ifs”. “If” Obama is elected and “if” the nation actually manages to survive intact for the first two years of an Obama administration. That being said, “20” today will be worth “10” in two years.. May I add another “if”? “20” will be worth “10” in two years, “if” that..
Were Barack Hussein Obama to be elected due to the negligence of the undecided and the madness of the mesmerized, there would be two years until the mid term election. The question becomes how much of what was once America will be left that could be salvaged after two years time?
