Oh Thank Goodness! Finally! Another Jimmy Carter!

April 3, 2009

I’ve heard President Obama compared to Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK and even Ronald Reagan. I don’t really see the comparisons, except maybe a little with FDR who also tried to use government spending to get us out of an economic downturn.

 

The only US president that I really think you can make a comparison to is Jimmy Carter. A president who was seen as weak by our enemies and couldn’t deal with the tremendous economic recession and inflation he faced.

Obama’s policies to this point actually make me think more of Hugo Chavez. Like Chavez, Obama is trying to nationalize businesses and grow government. It’s as though the President and his liberal/socialist allies in Congress don’t believe that Americans can be self sufficient. They believe that government is the answer. I don’t know what the question is, but they believe they and their policies are the answer.

 

What seems to be left out of the liberal plan is the realization that socialism has never worked in any nation where it’s been tried. The same people that want bigger government, higher taxes and less personal responsibility from the public, are the same people that passed a $787 billion “stimulus” plan without even reading it. Then when it became public knowledge that the spendulus plan included a provision that grandfathered in bonuses for AIG executives and others, these members of Congress feigned populist outrage and proceeded to write and pass an unconstitutional bill to tax these bonuses at 90%!

 

People need to wake up and recognize that those who don’t learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. High taxes, deficit spending and bigger government lead to more deficits, higher inflation and bigger less efficient government.

 

The devaluation of the US Dollar, due to inflation, has allowed Russia, China, France and the UN to float the idea of an international currency to replace the Dollar. This and the so-called “manmade global warming” crisis are just excuses to move toward a Global Government via the UN. If that doesn’t scare you, you need to stop and think about all the “good” the UN has done recently. Whether it’s ignoring the genocide in Bosnia (which the US and NATO stopped) or the current genocide in Darfur, the UN has been impotent in defending the weak and the poor. We could also look at the “oil for food program” where billions of dollars were funneled back to Saddam Hussein while senior UN officials were enriching themselves. Is this the organization we want running the world? I think not.

 

This is our country and we value US sovereignty. We have the rights given to us by the US Constitution, for now. But if we allow the UN to run things the Constitution will be void. Imagine, freedom of speech GONE. Imagine a guy in a blue UN cap coming to your door to collect your guns. It isn’t that far fetched people. They say Obama transcends politics (yeah right). They say he’s post partisian and post racial. What he may really be is post sovereignty, post national and post constitutional.
