Letter to the Editor: â€œJust choose from what worksâ€
The horse is out of the barn, the proof is in the pudding, the chicken has come home to roost, literally as Obama returns to Washington D.C.
March 24th 2016 the leader of the FREE WORLD and the largest free enterprise system said and I quote: â€œTHERE IS LITTLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMUNISM AND CAPITALISMâ€ as Obama addressed an audience of youth in his most recent trip to a third world pseudo democracy/dictatorship of Argentina not in itself a true democracy, then you have Cuba which remains a dictatorship under Raul Castrol brother of Fidel of which Obama just visited. You should also not be surprised, astounded, disappointed or expecting nothing less out of the mouth of this president up to and including another apology to a foreign leader.
Our presidents once traveled the world spreading the word of â€œLiberty, Freedom, Free Enterpriseâ€ and our Nations idealâ€™s use to be: â€œWe must be staunch in our conviction that FREEDOM is not the sole prerogative of a lucky few, but the inalienable and universal right of all human beings.â€ Now we have a president who I now paraphrase in saying to this country to whose people are already impoverished and whoâ€™s economy like Cubaâ€™s is in the tank, its ok to be communist, itâ€™s ok to give up, itâ€™s ok you donâ€™t have to strive to better yourselves, you donâ€™t need freedom! Obama is destructive, harmful and ignorant!
There are one hundred and ninety six countries in the world, forty five of these are known communist with a dictator and fourteen are dictatorships. If you have any thoughts that socialism/communism or totalitarianism/dictatorship work, look at Japan prior to WWII, look at North Korea then to South Korea today, East & West Berlin before the wall came down, Russia and Chinaâ€™s leadership share the same philosophy and the list goes on. If Putin thinks youâ€™re becoming a threat or too independent or important he just takes your company, keeps itâ€™s for the state which is like giving to himself. Putinâ€™s present net worth is $70 billion dollars, not bad for a once salaried KGB agent.
Makes one question the motives of Obama and begs the question could he get away with something like that in the United States? One could argue and say yes he did in giving G/M & Chrysler $26.5 billion bailout, WHOOPS, it did nothing of the kind as Obama bailed out the UAW, United Auto Workers compensation plan. Unions are socialist in nature and there is no question of Obama wanting to tear this nation apart, his track record speaks for itself!
The United Nationsâ€™ International Labor Organization (ILO) publishes the average monthly salary or wage for the whole world and listing the top 72 countries mind you, the top 72, Luxembourg being number one at an annual monthly salary of $4,089 to Tajikistan $227.00 per month being the last country on the list, the United States came in at number three, $3,263 dollars per month.
In 2008 before Obama took office the average salary in America was $52,029.00 dollars, today 2016 the average salary is $39,156.00 dollars. In his 2008 presidential campaign Obamaâ€™s slogan during the Democratic primaries â€œChange we can believe in,â€ "Change We Needâ€ and â€œHope and Change.â€ WELL DONE MR. PRESIDENT!
Well you misguided Obama loving voters you got your change and I hope you are happy and reaping all the rewards you expected in that we still have a failing economy, largest tax burden and debt ceiling placed upon the American people, job rate loss not seen since the great depression but yes, it is making a slight comeback and donâ€™t be fooled it is a false economy and letâ€™s not forget being forced fed the worst health care system ever created and so much, much more! WELL DONE AMERICA for your political activism and insight!
Given Obamaâ€™s most recent comments on top of his actions as the leader of the free world, his entire leadership of this country proves without a shadow of a doubt of his treacherous and treasonous intentions in wanting to run for president and once he became president, well the rest is history. Obama in making his comment is attempting to erase the lines between ideologies and the one that made America great, â€œCapitalism/free enterpriseâ€ just as he has erased our borders and think about it, this man is quite at ease and at home in any communist or dictatorship country.
Think about the Democratic Party and what it has become and what they represent in their ideology in that of Clinton and especially Sanders, you want more of the same in this â€œChange you can believe in.â€ We should not even be having these discussions in this country or of a president who is out promoting socialism/communism verseâ€™s a free enterprise system, but then again you have to understand the Democrats are the party that DOES NOT stand behind or represent success, individuality, Freedom/Liberty nor the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. SO, how can a Democrat/Socialist take the oath of office in saying: â€œI do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.â€ So how has Obama gotten away with treason in NOT defending those very words and principles when all the evidence and proof dictates he did the opposite, that is a mystery that only congress can resolve and the American people can question BUT yet demand answers!
