WORST President In History Obama: "We're Not Even Halfway There Yet"
”It’s been a long, tough journey. But we have made some incredible strides together. Yes, we have. But the thing that we all ought to remember is that as much as good as we have done, precisely because the challenges were so daunting, precisely because we we were inheriting so many challenges, that we’re not even halfway there yet. When I said ‘change we can believe in’ I didn’t say ‘change we could believe in tomorrow.’ Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy,” President Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago on Wednesday night.

There it is again, that dirty ugly word he uses, Democracy. And this is why he is getting away with what he is doing the destruction of America.
We are a Republic at least suppose to be. The American system is not a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. A democracy, if you attach meaning to terms, is a system of unlimited majority rule . . . a form of collectivism, which denies individual rights . . . . The American system is a constitutionally limited republic, restricted to the protection of individual rights. In such a system, majority rule is applicable only to lesser details, such as the selection of certain personnel. But the majority has no say over the basic principles governing the government. It has no power to ask for or gain the infringement of individual rights.

Thursday, 4th August 2011.
On this the 50th anniversary of the birth of the President of the Untied States whose name I refuse to utter, I choose to write.
There is much doubt as to his background, as to how seemingly out of nowhere an inexperienced community organizer made it to the White House, and even of his birth certificate from Hawaii.
On the subject of birth certificates, and those that never got one, when there are still some of us who take somber pause to reflect on those innocents snuffed and aborted, who never knew nor experienced the splendor of love and life as we have, and now number in the millions, I share the following words of this President whose name I refuse to write:
"I've got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I'm gonna teach them first of all about values and morals. But, if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."
"Well, you know, I think that whether you're looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, uh, answering that question with specificity, uh, you know is, is, uh, above my pay grade."
To round full circle, to better understand just how immoral, despotic and sinister today’s American left has become, what little respect for individual human life there is in these people, and how they value only collective life in their pursuit of socialism and a life by government ration for all of us from cradle to grave;
here are the words of one of the President’s loudest supporters, another socialist collectivist central planner who also sees individual human life as cheap and expendable, whether at the beginning of life or at its end:
"We are going to have to, if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It's too expensive, so we're going to let you die." -Robert Reich.
Who are these Godless people of such human depravity ?
I submit, they are not Americans.
It is their collectivist secular mindset, their seeking committee dominion over our own lives and liberty so that we all live a life by government ration with lives of misery, tyranny and the subsequent sordid dens of crime that their socialism brings that is the focus of evil in the modern world.
I have of course paraphrased C.S. Lewis and Ronald Reagan. In vivid contrast to this President, here’s what Reagan said in 1983:
“A number of years ago, I heard a young father, a very prominent young man in the entertainment world, addressing a tremendous gathering in California.
It was during the time of the Cold War, and communism and our own way of life were very much on people's minds. And he was speaking to that subject. And suddenly, though, I heard him saying, "I love my little girls more than anything -- -- "And I said to myself, "Oh, no, don't. You can't -- don't say that."
But I had underestimated him. He went on: "I would rather see my little girls die now, still believing in God, than have them grow up under communism and one day die no longer believing in God."
There were thousands of young people in that audience. They came to their feet with shouts of joy. They had instantly recognized the profound truth in what he had said, with regard to the physical and the soul and what was truly important.
Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness -- pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the state, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the Earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.
It was C.S. Lewis who, in his unforgettable "Screwtape Letters," wrote: "The greatest evil is not done now in those sordid 'dens of crime' that Dickens loved to paint. It is not even done in concentration camps and labor camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried and minuted) in clear, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice."
Well, because these "quiet men" do not "raise their voices"; because they sometimes speak in soothing tones of brotherhood and peace; because, like other dictators before them, they're always making "their final territorial demand," some would have us accept them at their word and accommodate ourselves to their aggressive impulses. But if history teaches anything, it teaches that simple-minded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom...
While America's military strength is important, let me add here that I've always maintained that the struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.
Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversion made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western World exists to the degree in which the West is indifferent to God, the degree to which it collaborates in communism's attempt to make man stand alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, "Ye shall be as gods."
The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, "but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as great as communism's faith in Man."
Yes, change your world. One of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said, "We have it within our power to begin the world over again."
We can do it, doing together what no one church could do by itself.”
Earlier in 1961, a prescient Reagan seeing half a century ahead warned us about adopting a national socialized medicine program as this President has and which must be repealed:
"Behind it will come other government programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country until one day as socialist Norman Thomas said, "the American people would never vote for socialism, but under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program" and we Americans will wake to find that we have socialism... to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."
The present occupant of the White House was a freshman Senator from Illinois who in my opinion has only had but one great real accomplishment in his public life and that was wresting from Hillary Clinton and the well established Clinton Democrat machine their party's nomination in 2008.
Then, and only then as happen chance, the economic collapse in the Autumn of 2008 occurred as it did just before the November elections I know certain would have occurred regardless of who was in the White House at the time. And so, with that window open, and that confluence of events, this White House in 2011 is occupied as it is.
This debate isn't just about the debt ceiling. There are much, much larger issues here. This is about the very nature of the society that we as Americans want to live under.
The policies of this President are but prologue and plenary. It all has nothing to do with compassion and has everything to do with slow incremental control over time (many years), central planning, and equality.
Socialism achieves its ends because it is a perversion of human compassion and secular idealism. And that's the reason why Ronald Reagan defied the world and properly called socialism evil.
Liberalism is no longer just a political orientation or a political opposition.
It is not progressive at all either, but clearly regressive by proven past failures of a life by government ration throughout history. A committee dominion of life where the state collective reigns supreme. You are not an individual but always seen down upon as part of a group, geographic or ethnic.
This is a collectivist, secular cult like frame of mind with an agenda that's not only directly opposed to liberty, but has no other means of being realized except through incremental central planning under the guise of compassion, equality and environmentalism all resulting in subsequent tyranny. Time in memorial, history proves this time and again.
Liberty is just simply incompatible with the society that liberals tells us they want.
If you look at the former Soviet Union and today’s Cuba and you study it from the impact that it has had on people's lives, not just the long lines of rationing and the empty store shelves, but the psychological components of socialist rule, the dependency and sloth it creates. This is what you talk about when you talk about the perversion of language.
These are societies where you must, you have to adhere to the political thought of the committee or else you are at best ostracized, denied work or sustenance if not jailed just for what you think.
When the threat of August's social security checks not going out was made by the President last month during the federal debt ceiling debate, he was using the existing apparatus to make a play for even more power and more money. It was deplorable and beneath the high office that he holds to instill fear and incite class envy dividing the very people he is to lead.
We have now created millions of lost and dependent people that cannot live without government. By his own admission there are now 70 million Americans and their dependents that rely on monthly checks from the federal government. Liberals look upon that stat with pride. True conservatives are more prescient.
This creates a vicious cycle within the electorate and a clear and certain path to economic ruin and the loss of freedom.
So when a rationed national health care program gets fully implemented, and let’s say you have a child who has cancer and some future President long from now comes on television and says unless you pass my program I'm going to cut off cancer treatment.
Well then, at that point, everything has been lost.
I have followed American politics for a very long time.
I assure you this video from the Senate floor in Washington is well worth nine minutes of your time:
From this video, I cannot tell clearly if the freshman Senator from Florida is speaking from prepared remarks.
I do not know if Marco Rubio wrote his own remarks, or if he or others have assembled a group of speech writers on his behalf.
But watching and listening to him on the Senate floor is extraordinary. It is prescient, and as if from another era, Churchillian.
He's awfully young and inexperienced, but I do believe we have the making of something of substance here. His themes bring to mind those of another articulate lucid communicator of public affairs.
He has not nearly the experience, he was not born in midwest America, he was not a Rock River lifeguard with a vigilant and watchful eye for danger, he was not a sports radio broadcaster showing others, well before there was any television, to see things as he saw them developing his expressive narrative skills, he was not elected president of his professional union seven times, he was not a traveling spokesman and pitchman for General Electric visiting it plants across America well tailored and speaking with reassuring cheerful confidence, he did not enter politics after a successful career in the private sector to support Barry Goldwater, he was not twice elected Governor of California serving for eight years, he has not twice failed to win his party's nomination for President of the United States to then finally win it at age 69 in 1980 and again four years later in the greatest landslide election ever.
Marco Rubio was born in South Florida. He comes from a background of a good and industrious people who know very well of the loss of liberty, how it can come so quickly, deceit veiled in soothing tones of providing and of brotherhood, yet so destructive and tyrannical with such a life altering betrayal and devastating loss to a country, its people, its proud history, its endearing culture, its uniting traditions, and its very way of life.
There is an island just 90 miles off American shores on the other side of the Florida straits, long isolated from Americans, the largest island and the pearl of the Caribbean, where for more than 50 years its eleven million people and one million people in its diaspora around the world have long suffered and endured the Marxist tyranny of socialism.
It is a story worthy of revisiting and of a closer look by Americans now.
I join many Cuban Americans down in Miami who feel Florida has sent to Washington the Cuban American Ronald Reagan.
During this 2011 national debt crisis, the President and so many others in Washington failed miserably to rise to the occasion, but in his limited capacity one freshman Senator certainly has, and something good may just have come out of all of this:

So obama figures he is not even halfway toward destroying America. He will only be satisfied when he can hear the muslim call to prayer in every town and burg in America. obama's goals for America are Marxism and islam. No, he is not halfway there yet. But he is well on his way to destroying America economically and morally. That will open the door for the muzzies and commies.
In 2012 we better destroy this monster and his Democrat cohorts at the ballot box.

Awesome input, thank you all so much.
Carlos, I agree, I thank God for his passion and honesty. And God bless the Cuban Americans.
To all of you, I agree so much, this next election will mean survival of our country or the end.

I hope Carlos feels better after venting. In practice Obama is right as I put his damage at between 12% and 20% so far. A Calvin Coolidge or a Ronald Reagan could repair the damage in just eight years. But Obama still has sixteen months to sink the United States.
