Barack Obama Has Awakened a Sleeping Nation!

Gary Hubbell - Aspen Times Weekly

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America's future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America's resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America .

Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips — they've gotten off the fence. They've woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven't seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

Think of the crap we've slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and “disabilities.” Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts.

We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

In the time of Barack Obama, Black Panther members stand outside polling places in black commando uniforms, slapping truncheons into their palms. ACORN — a taxpayer-supported organization — is given a role in taking the census, even after its members were caught on tape offering advice to set up child prostitution rings. A former Communist is given a paid government position in the White House as an advisor to the president.

Auto companies are taken over by the government, and the auto workers' union — whose contracts are completely insupportable in any economic sense — is rewarded with a stake in the company. Government bails out Wall Street investment bankers and insurance companies, who pay their executives outrageous bonuses as thanks for the public support. Terrorists are read their Miranda rights and given free lawyers. And, despite overwhelming public disapproval, Barack Obama has pushed forward with a health care plan that would re-structure one-sixth of the American economy.

I don't know about you, but the other day I was at the courthouse doing some business, and I stepped into the court clerk's office and changed my voter affiliation from “Independent” to “Republican.” I am under no illusion that the Republican party is perfect, but at least they're starting to awaken to the fact that we cannot sustain massive levels of debt; we cannot afford to hand out billions of dollars in corporate subsidies; we have to somehow trim our massive entitlement programs; we can no longer be the world's policeman and dole out billions in aid to countries whose citizens seek to harm us.

Literally millions of Americans have had enough. They're organizing, they're studying the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, they're reading history and case law, they're showing up at rallies and meetings, and a slew of conservative candidates are throwing their hats into the ring.

Is there a revolution brewing? Yes, in the sense that there is a keen awareness that our priorities and sensibilities must be radically re-structured. Will it be a violent revolution? No. It will be done through the interpretation of the original document that has guided us for 220 years — the Constitution. Just as the pendulum swung to embrace political correctness and liberalism, there will be a backlash, a complete repudiation of a hundred years of nonsense. A hundred years from now, history will perceive the year 2010 as the time when America got back on the right track. And for that, we can thank Barack Hussein Obama.

Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending

The debt...I've heard this said about every President since Regan. TARP...let's not forget, that was Bush. Stimulus spending...again, Bush first. Not saying that Obama's was better, because it wasn't. My point is that it isn't just a "liberal" problem. Although I will agree that far left Democrats thrive on excessive spending.

I don't get involved in the "liberal/conservative" way of voting. I vote America. If a Democratic candidate has good ideas, I'll pay attention. If a Republican candidate has good ideas, I'll pay attention. Same with an Independent.

Here's an idea.....look at our current Congress. How many are incumbents? Who have been up there more than 2 terms? WE the PEOPLE are the so called "employer" of Congress...and we harp and complain about what a lousy job they do, yet, how many of us are guilty of re electing Senators and Representatives based on 2 things....Party and Recognition? This was pointed out to me in a political science class in college. During a lecture, the professor said that extreme party loyalty, recognition, and voter apathy could lead to the 2 party systems failure. Looks like it's headed that way. Does anybody ever really look at the other party's out there when it comes to elections? We have internet access...why rely on Fox or CNN? I'm not stupid, I know Fox is conservative while CNN leans more left. MSNBC? They're the opposite of Fox. CNN is the only one that tries to appear neutral.

Like I said, I've voted for Democrats and I've voted for Republicans. I vote for who I feel has America's best interest at heart. Sometimes the candidate I vote for wins, sometimes not. I don't get myself caught up in the "evil liberals/evil conservatives" argument. Neither party is perfect. Maybe it's time to clean up Congress. Don't re elect incumbents...elect new officials who aren't corrupted by PACS, and lobbyists. Just a thought.

In 2011 when Barrys' tax increases start, you will be amazed how low this Clown President will sink.....

If you mean Jimmy Carter....I was in junior high when he was president and even then...I didn't think much of him.

Since the previous Bush administration and when Obama began campaigning for presidency, I have read and heard the pros and cons regarding health care reform! Few people, really know what has actually been voted on by Congress! Certainly, Congress doesn't know, if I can believe what they themselves have said, regarding whether or not they even read the proposal (we all know they didn't) now voted in as law! I read about a third of the original proposal until I had to put it down- as it was designed to do, IMO!

IMO "reforming" our medical programs would entail cutting out the 'fraud' going on there by being punishable with very sever penalties and acting on them on every fraud case! Then, you make it as efficient as you can, using today's technology! Those two things right there, would probably reclaim enough funds to pay for a good portion of a "reform." Then, all eligible of age, would be included in Medicare and all others, brought under Medicaid! Problem solved! Except that, Unky Sam doesn't understand, what the average person understands- and/or, don't care!

After all this rhetoric, let me boil this down to one word: TRILLION- that is one thousand BILLION dollars! Some have said that we're looking at about 14 trillion dollars in debt, in the next few years! Not true- we will be on an order of magnitude of trillions (approx. $146 trillion, plus or minus a few bucks) in debt, when you consider the entire debt load in our country and the interest to be paid on all of this debt! IMO, this is totally insane and unsustainable- I don't care what administration is in place!

Congress actually voted for a blank check, under the guise of health care reform! It's a well known fact that our government doesn't have a clue of how to administrate any program that is fraud free, efficient and within stated costs! To be fair, most estimates are just that, estimates! However our government has shown time and again that it has no incentive of controlling costs, in ANYTHING they do and the reason is two fold- 1. no responsibility and 2. in our minds, it's OUR money they are spending- in THEIR minds, it's THEIR money, once you write that check to them and they collect the multitude of taxes on everything we buy and sell (profit)!

I hear now that Sallie Mae (federal and student loans) is laying off 2,500 (30%) of their people because Unky Sam is taking over student loans now. With millions being laid off (about four million or so and counting?), Unky Sam's revenue, continues to drop! How do you compensate for that? You raise taxes and reduce entitlements! There's your "change" happening... right before your eyes!

Look, I'm not putting the entire blame on President Obama (although he certainly has taken all this and pushed it into high-gear in his agendas)- this has been coming for decades! It's up to the citizens to let this continue... or not!

I normally plow through anything that is important that is coming up for a vote and keep up with what happens to it then. I wonder how many people who bitch about something actually know what is in it or are they just going on what someone with an agenda said was in it?

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the president ignored the clear and timely warning that terrorists were going to hijack planes and fly them into the WTCs.

You didn't get mad when the weapons inspectors, who said there were no WMDs, were ignored.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed army hospital.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans...oh hell no.

Apr 4 @ 9:33AM  
Because of those lies you posted?

No what I get mad about is that 1/2 this country is so stupid they buy this bullshit.

My favorite -- Bush KNEW we were about to be attacked and did nothing...

It was KLINTON and JAMIE GERLOCK who stopped the FBI AND CIA from telling each other the puzzle pieces they had of the pending attack -- which even if a MORON DEMOCRAT had in his hands could THEN put together the plot.

The same Jamie Gerlock who stole MILLIONS ( 135,000,000) from either Freddie Mack or Fannie Mae sitting on the board of directors.

I get mad when you Democrats wont see the REAL CAUSE of the destruction of this nation under Democrats passing laws that then FORCED banks to give loans to NON CREDIT WORTHY PEOPLE ((mostly Democrats)) so they could BUY MORE VOTES.

Then when they "back up" these loans with the US Govt ( Fannie and Freddie ) and the whole house of cards collapses they move on to another destruction of our economy the Health Care system.

Then the 50% of this country that is too dumb to think says "Man is this not great?"


So why not check out the money that Oblahblahblah took from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack?? Chris Dowd?? Barney Frank??

No!! Do what you always do and turn your head the other way..

The TRUTH scares you...
