America, 2010 – Ramped up efforts towards socialism, many broken promises, failed policy and tripling the country’s debt are just a few reasons why people are calling President Obama and his staff, a modern day scandal. In order to fully understand the shape that our country is in, one must first understand politics and politics past role in the equation. Today, it’s not Democrat or Republican, left or right, its blatant theft and a massive power grab of the peoples’ freedoms.
BLAMING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION?
What does President Obama have to say now?
– No new taxes on families making less than 250k.
Obama said it flat-out and has since signed legislation into law that goes against his promise to the people.
– More than tripling the nation’s deficit.
One word….BAILOUTS. Sure the first one came at the signatory hand of Bush, but it was the democratically controlled Congress, including Obama, that voted for it.
– Obama recently stated “many people have to get car insurance, and that isn’t a tax increase, why would you think mandatory medical coverage is?” The justice department has since deemed this “fee” as a tax.
And who is to head the regulation of this “fee”? None other than the IRS, and last time I checked, the IRS is the agency responsible for collecting “taxes”.
– “Saved” or Created Jobs.
If you can’t see through this, you’d be better off taking orders at the local fast food drive-thru. Oh wait…That’s if they’re hiring.
– Bribes for Healthcare Votes.
Mr. “Watergate” Nixon would probably agree with me on this when I state the infamous quote: “Actions speak louder than words”. Google all the sweet back-door deals for healthcare. Can’t miss’em.
– Bribes to political candidates of Pennsylvania and Colorado respectively, by offering federal appointments to Rep. Joe Sestak and Andrew Romanoff to pull out of their campaigns for jobs in DC.
Admissions by the candidates and direct emails confirm this “allegation”.
– 7 Vacations when your Country is arguably in the most dangerous shape ever.
Cameras work wonders these days…Can’t rebut this “allegation”.
– And last but not least, for all of the people out there who still say Obama wins your vote, this one might sting a little… FAILURE TO GET OUR TROOPS OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST.
Just watch Fox, CNN or any other mainstream media source, or better yet, fly on over there and do some investigating.
This is not intended to defend Bush either, just clarifying the “blame game” for those who have Obama- vision.
Many other examples have been left out, but the picture is quite clear. My question to you, America: Why hasn’t Obama been impeached? Why hasn’t he resigned? When Nixon admitted on tape that he had bribed five people to break into the National Democratic Congressional Committee in DC to create a slush fund, he simply tucked his tail and left the oval office, only later to be pardoned by Ford instead of put behind bars. Obama has given cold hard cash to people in exchange for votes. Call it Earmarks – Call it politics today at all levels. Whether it is in the form of asbestos care for Montana, or the cornhusker deal in Nebraska, its bribery, and nothing less. And for all of those who are stuck with their conspiracy theories – Wake up! Obama is the president whether he was born in China, Africa or Egypt. What he has done during his presidency is “Fact”, and many say, grounds for Impeachment.
Since Obama’s inauguration, there has been close to three TRILLION dollars spent in financial bailouts on top of the initial Bush Bailout of 750 billion. A 700 billion dollar bailout and a 500 million dollar “aid” to Pakistan are just a couple new “spending-sprees” that one would think is a sick joke. Hopefully, educated people who can read simple budget and taxation figures will be able to see the reality behind the rhetoric instead of the rumor behind the reality come this November.
Although a utopia is ideal; all of us happy, living in peace, no more ridiculous taxes and truly “Free”, that day may have passed us by. The fact is, corruption is alive and well in American politics, and it is clearly evident in Obama’s presidency.
So here’s the deal, it’s time for America to wake up and hold all of our representatives accountable, for if not, we will lose our country. Only time and the efforts of the American people will tell if we have a true government of, for, and by the people.
