The truth has finally surfaced for all to see and, hopefully, understand. Our current president, Barack Hussein Obama, is no dummy. Unlike what some writers have asserted, Mr. Obama is not in over his head wandering around trying one thing after another hoping something will succeed. No, he knows exactly what he is doing. He told us in 2008 while campaigning that he will drastically change the United States of America. He has spent three and one half years changing America to a controlled society where “big brother” in Washington, D.C. makes all of the decisions for us uninformed out here in fly-over land.
His 2012 campaign slogan — “Forward” — tells us what we need to know will happen if he is re-elected President in November. “Forward” is the word used by socialists, communists and fascists going back to the 1850s to identify themselves and to tell others about their plans. Marx, Trotsky and Engels frequently wrote articles in a German periodical titled, ”Forward.” A periodical created by Lenn in Russia was also titled “Forward” and it was used by the leaders of the revolution to influence strategy during the communist takeover and the formation of the Soviet Union. Chairman Mao of Communist China used the phrase, “A great leap forward,” as he implemented his strategy to solidify his control.
What Mr. Obama already done to implement a federal government controlled state? I’ll just discuss two or three of his most egregious actions:
1) Obamacare: This issue has been in the news so much I’ll just highlight couple of items. It of course is his attempt to take control of 16 percent of the American economy. It’s not about improving healthcare for Americans, but about controlling Americans. Why would this legislation include funding for 13,000 IRS agents if control of the people wasn’t a major plan? IRS agents are not known to be experts in providing health care.
2) Controlling or Reducing Sources of Energy: He has curtailed exploration for oil and gas on all federal lands, both on shore and off shore. The only successful new oil/gas finds have been on private or state owned lands. Even here, his EPA and other federal agencies are using all sorts of tactics to hinder private enterprise as they bring forth new finds. In the hugely successful Bakken oil and gas fields in North Dakota the Justice Department brought suit against several oil companies claiming that a handful of birds (25-30) had died in “reserve pits.” A district court judge threw this suit out with little ado. He asserted that birds die in many ways and noted that wind turbines kill an estimated 33,000 birds a year. Obama himself said that he will drive coal driven electric power plants out of business, even though this will mean our electric bills will skyrocket. EPA recently issued regulations to accomplish this. All these actions, including stopping the pipeline from Canada to Texas, are preventing private enterprise from hiring the unemployed to produce a much needed product. Remember, we still import well over one-half of our oil. Why shouldn’t produce and use our own oil? Why shouldn’t we hire our unemployed? Maybe, it’s because control will be lost.
3) Controlling Money and Finance: Obama and his regime have used many methods to assert control over our pocket-books. One way is to spend the U.S. into bankruptcy. Our debt is so large and the government’s spending are so out of line —$1.2 trillion annual deficits — that private enterprise is scared and not willing to take normal business risks. Unemployment is high, the workforce decreases and welfare rolls grow all the while giving “big brother” more control over people and the economy. His “stimulus program” did not stimulate other than now bankrupt solar energy firms. There were no shovel ready jobs only shoveling our tax payer monies (plus lots of borrowed funds) to states, unions and other spendaholics. These actions are intended to make us want more of “big brother’s” money — give them more control — as we give up our liberty and freedom.
I could go on and on, but I only ask the reader to take a clear look at history. Not necessarily the history taught in today’s schools or reported by our mainstream media. Look at the many past experiences of state control and see for yourself what these countries did to (not for) their peoples. The Soviet Union. Communist China. Communist Cuba. Communist North Korea. Any or all of the Soviet Union dominated churches in East Europe. Look at countries which have not yet turned communist, but have been strong socialist states, and we see many of the countries in the Eurozone. Ask yourself, do we want to be like Greece, Italy, Spain, and on and on. I believe most of us will say no; we ilk what America is or was with our personal freedoms and opportunities to be the best we can.
