Reasons for rage

In My Opinion

J.R. FroelichJuly 25, 2012 

President Abraham Lincoln said that the American Civil War was waged so that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." America is currently experiencing government of Obama, by Obama, for Obama. Let me explain.

To make his mark on America, Mr. Obama wrote a book about himself titled, "Dreams From My Father." Please note that this book is not about his father's dreams, but the dreams he inherited from his father. Passages include, "I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites" and "there was something about her that made me wary of her, a little too sure of herself, maybe, and a little too white" and "it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses," and lastly, "I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela." These quotes are poorly justified by Snopes.com.

Mr. Obama boasts of smoking dope in college. Any wonder why he refuses to release his college transcripts? There is no record, that I'm aware of, that he has ever held a job of any sort other than "community organizer," but he vilifies a successful businessman and former state governor. Is anyone paying attention to Chicago? If one's predecessor can be blamed for the current situation, as Mr. Obama insists that it can, then we know why Chicago is such a mess. President Obama would rather have us look at how his opponent spends private money while he wastes billions of our hard earned dollars.

In President Obama's inaugural address he said, "The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the publics dollars will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government."

Has he lived up to his message? Instead of more jobs, he increased food stamp "donations" $45.8 million in 2011. Instead of affordable health care, premiums are skyrocketing and more people are lining up for "free" medical care. Instead of dignified retirement, we have unions bankrupting major cities. Instead of managing public funds, we have triple the national debt. Instead of business in the light of day, we have presidential executive privilege concealing information about the murder of a US Boarder Patrol officer in a government gun running operation called Fast and Furious. Why would our president have anything to "protect" in this investigation? His Attorney General ignores voter threats by Black Panther groups, sues to inhibit proper voter registration, and sues our states for wanting to defend their borders. The man he appointed as Secretary of the Treasury is, at best, a tax dodger. His departments are blowing through millions on parties. Did I mention some 40 "czars" who operate outside of congress? Sounds more like Chicago style politics than the old D.C group. It is change. Do you trust our government?

If I were here illegally I'd have hope. The change is mucho bueno. Our government donates more than $338 billion of our tax dollars each year to illegal alien causes from their cradles right on through their prison terms.

I understand that Mr. Obama is a fan of Saul Alinsky, author of Rules For Radicals. Mr. Alinsky writes, "The despair is there; now it's up to us to go in and rub raw the sores of discontent, galvanize them for radical social change." Sounds like the current Obama campaign strategy. America is becoming an Obamanation.

This patriot prefers Thomas Jefferson who said, "Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading." The rage fueled by the desire for freedom gave birth to this nation. By the grace of God our rage for freedom and liberty will prevail.
