The America We Knew Before Obama

Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle we call America too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again. Thanks to Mr. Obama an his Liberal followers.

If we choose to blame the press for not vetting Obama, then we ought to ask ourselves why “we the people” didn’t demand more. Either one of two answers is possible, and neither offers much hope for the future.

We either knew who and what Obama was and represents, or we simply didn’t care. We either looked deep into his past and saw a socialist/pacifist/delusional narcissist, who had no scruples and standards whatsoever and said “he’s the one”, or he simply made us feel good with the narcotic of “hope and change” and we just wanted a temporary high to relieve us the pains of our current existence.

It is impossible that any thinking person can honestly believe that borrowing/printing and spending upwards of 10 - 15 trillion dollars is anything but a major catastrophe in the making. Yet the public, save a relatively small cadre of tea party attendees, is inattentive, perhaps by choice.

That there was not national outrage over the bow to the Saudi king probably says more than anything else. There has never been, at least as far as I can recall, such a disgraceful, disgusting, and dishonorable act by a US president. By former presidents, yeah, Carter certainly has done his share, but not by a sitting president.


  1. Many of us did demand more, and the press laughed at us and then went to destroy another conservative.

  2. 3 more years and this nightmare will be over
