The harsh reality was most Americans did not explore any further than the superficial when Mr. Obama ran for the presidency. He was cool, laughed, a young black man – even “hip;” not much more really mattered. To his credit Mr. Obama told this Nation exactly what he intended, it seemed only “Joe the Plummer” got it, spoke up and challenged the Communism dripping from the candidate. Obama delivered a litany of changes he would bring to America; all of them taken from Karl Marx Communist Manifesto. You know…Redistribution of wealth; People are not good stewards of the land so the government must confiscate and manage; Individual rights are to give way to the needs of the community; Bring down food and energy independence to be in “social equity” with the poorer nations; Neutralize expressed opposition – No dissent! There are others but you get the drift, I pray. Yet America did not really look at or listen to the man who could shoot hoops and hang-out with movie stars. If Americans had asked confronting questions and really listened to what was espoused, Americans would have come to see a man deeply tormented and filled with resentment and anger; a man who despised America and our history, our customs, our belief in the Judeo-Christian framework which made our Nation so exceptional – not because we were better than others, but because we believed in God given rights to individuals, freedom to worship and express our love and appreciation to God for ordaining this Nation in the first place (yes, the Founders believed and wrote about this most candidly), No King, No all-powerful State and the other Rights written into a Constitution for the People and by the People.
If we had questioned him, we would have learned he did not grow-up with the American Experience at all; you know, picnics and hot dogs, fireworks on the 4th of July and all its significance; flag football or stick ball on the street, learning first-hand about our national heritage, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day. He grew up among people who despised America, despised our core values and traditions, and viewed our patriotism as signal for oppression. Heck, he even said on the TV program Meet the Press – Sunday September 7, 2008, the “American National Anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren.” If we had only asked….
Dr. Jack Wheeler who authored the Reagan strategy to break the Soviet Union star wars military weapons race, and who published a weekly intelligence update on global trends and the future, a candid patriot for America wrote: “Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experiences, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the real world works, no ba-ls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance. He has no identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother,which he pretends he is exclusively. What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is ‘African-American,’ the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead his Arab ancestors were slave owners…Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity….”
Elections, indeed, have consequences and so does turning away from God. The children of Israel demanded a King, an earthly King they could touch and feel good with and who could lead them in their wants (I Samuel 8). The people were rejecting the God of All Creation, and replace God with a human monarch who would help them run the country through human strength. They thought that a change in the form of government, away from submission to God, would bring about a great new day and change in the nation. A man named Saul came along, and, well, Israel and the people did not fair well under his leadership; in fact, it was a disaster for the Nation of Israel and for so very many citizens. We are on a very similar path as a people, and as a Nation.
Mr. Obama’s words over five years have now given us consistency from which we can see into this man who lives in the personal conflicted shadows of himself, and continues to try and hide a diabolical heart. Creating anxiety and dissension rather than uniting our country; promoting disrespect for opposing opinions; suggesting race and bigotry are rising rather than celebrating the healing that painfully and carefully has taken place amongst groups of peoples
