Obama’s ideology vs. Reality

Obama Calls Bush Unpatriotic

Thanks to an awesome website called NotableQuotes.com, I was able to compile a little comparison between what Barack Obama says and what the actual truth is.

Obama says:  “When special interests put their thumb on the scale, and distort the free market, the people who compete by the rules come in last.” Barack Obamaspeech, Aug. 2, 2008

Reality:  Knock, knock.  Who’s there?  OBAMACARE!  What—in the history of America’s free market system—has more blatantly distorted that system than Obamacare, in which everyone is forced to comply with government-controlled healthcare or they will pay hefty fines or worse?  The ONLY word for this isSocialism and it hasn’t worked for the UK, Canada or anywhere else in the universe.  Never has, never will…

Obama says:  Congress has to compromise!  “But I do think that, right now at least, in the Republican Party there are a couple of notions.  No. 1 is that compromise is a dirty word.  No. 2, anything that Obama’s for, we’re against.”  Barack Obama, ABC Barbara Walters Special, 2011

Reality:  …as long as it’s REPUBLICANS whom are the ones doing all the compromising.  In 2006, Barack wasn’t quite as enthusiastic about “compromise”—when it involved compromising HIS principles:  “I think that the Democratic Party and progressives generally have gotten confused in getting trapped in this debate about are you liberal or are you centrist? I’m not interested in being a centrist or rushing to the middle, in the sense of just splitting the difference with a radically ideological Bush administration. And that’s how I think we got into trouble in many instances, was we just kept on splitting the difference until you find out you don’t stand for anything, you just keep on compromising.”  Barack ObamaTavis Smiley Show, Oct. 23, 2006

Obama says:  Let’s level that playing field.  “What we’re talking about under a balanced approach is asking Americans whose incomes have gone up the most over the last decade — millionaires and billionaires — to share in the sacrifice everyone else has to make.” Barack Obama, speech 2011

Reality:  WHOSE playing field does he mean?  You’ve got to remember—when Obama talks about those evil ‘millionaires and billionaires’ he is NOT talking about the Michael Moore’s, Sean Penn’s or Bill Maher’s of the world—he’s talking about AMERICAN BUSINESSES, such as oil company owners, private plane operators and hedge fund managers.  Barack believes that people and/or businesses that have “too much money” have to give part of their money to people who don’t have as much as they do. The problems with this:  How much is ‘too much’?  What do they consider ‘rich’ and ‘poor’?  And WHO decides these things?

Obama says:  Don’t call Obamacare “Socialized medicine”!  “Throwing around phrases like ‘socialists’ and ‘Soviet-style takeover’…  that may grab headlines, but it also has the effect of comparing our government, our political opponents, to authoritarian, even murderous regimes.”  Barack Obama, 2010 State of the Union speech

“Opponents of health reform warn that this is all some big plot for socialized medicine or government-run health care with long lines and rationed care. That’s not true either. I don’t believe that government can or should run health care.”  Barack Obama, weekly address, Jul. 18, 2009 

Reality:  That’s what HE said.  Barack himself has called Obamacare ‘socialized medicine’:  “…we must either tolerate forty-six million without health insurance or embrace ‘socialized medicine.’”  Barack Obama,The Audacity of Hope

Obama says:  He is a Christian.

Reality:  I personally don’t know any Christians who celebrate Islam the way Barack Obama does.  “Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’”  NYT interview, “Obama, Man of the World”, March 2007

Also–Obama seems to have a MAJOR chip on his shoulder regarding Christianity (or as he calls it “the religious right”):  “This notion that’s peddled by the religious right – that they are oppressed is not true. Sometimes it’s a cynical ploy to move their agenda ahead. The classic example being that somehow secularists are trying to eliminate Christmas, which strikes me as some kind of manufactured controversy.”Barack Obama, Street Prophets interview, Jul. 11, 2006

By the way—the first person that made a big deal about Obama’s Muslim ties was Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primaries.  Just saying… 

Obama says:  We must work with our allies.  “We must always reserve the right to strike unilaterally at terrorists wherever they may exist. But we should know that our success in doing so is enhanced by engaging our allies so that we receive the crucial diplomatic, military, intelligence, and financial support that can lighten our load and add legitimacy to our actions. This means talking to our friends and, at times, even our enemies.”  Barack Obama, 2006 speech

Reality:  “Engaging our allies”?  Hello, Israel?  Thinking their microphones were off, France’s Nicolas Sarkozy had an unguarded conversation with Obama about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Sarkozy said, “I can not stand him, he is a liar.”  Barack Hussein Obama replied, “You’re fed up with him but I have to deal with him every day.”

Obama says:  No name calling!  “At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”  Barack Obama, speech at memorial for Arizona shooting victims, Jan. 12, 2011

Reality:  Do as I say, not as I do.  “And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”  Barack Obama, April 2008

“So, when you see – those of you who are watching certain news channels that on which I’m not very popular and you see folks waving tea bags around, let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.”  Barack Obama, Town Hall meeting 2009

“Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit [Democratic voters] and it will encourage the extremists.” Barack Obama speech, 2009

Obama says:  “We live in a culture that discourages empathy. A culture that too often tells us our principle goal in life is to be rich, thin, young, famous, safe, and entertained.”

Barack Obama, speech, Jul. 12, 2006

Reality:  Forget empathy–these ARE the Obamas “principle goals”!  “Rich”:  the Obamas’ net worth is $ million; Thin:  Michelle Obama’s entire platform is to make people thin; Safe:  Obama has made us more un-safe and more of an Islamic target than any president in history; Entertained:  We all know about the Obamas multi-million dollar frivolous, over-the-top elitist vacations, both together and separately…ugh.

Obama says:  Hateful religion is bad.  “…and where terrorists offer only the injustice of disorder and destruction, America must demonstrate that our values and institutions are more resilient than a hateful ideology.”  Barack Obama, speech 2009

Reality:  WHAT is a more “hateful ideology” than Islam?  And yet, almost every time Obama mentions the word “Christian” he follows it with Muslims (ahead of “Jews”, who far outnumber Muslims in America…)

Obama says:  No distractions, please!  “We’re not going to be able to do it if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts. We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers.”  Barack Obama, remarks in press briefing room, Apr. 27, 2011

Reality:  Yeah, okay.  But I seem to remember a certain memorial service in Arizona that turned into a rock star-like campaign rally complete with FREE T-SHIRTS FOR ALL…And during that time, the Democrat Machine was in full-spin cycle, constantly insinuating that Conservatives were responsible for the crazyLIBERAL nutjob who shot people at a Democrat event…just saying…

Obama says:  The 2nd Amendment is good!  “I believe in the Second Amendment. It does provide for Americans the right to bear arms for their protection, for their safety, for hunting, for a wide range of uses. That does not mean that we cannot constrain gun runners from shipping guns into Mexico.”

Reality:  Not so much.  People in the know believe Fast & Furious was entirely a 2nd Amendment thing.  Obama has also said, “I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities, and that our leaders must say so in the face of the gun manfuacturer’s lobby.”  Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope

Obama says:  He cares about our military.  “When we send our young men and women into harm’s way, we have a solemn obligation not to fudge the numbers or shade the truth about why they’re going, to care for their families while they’re gone, to tend to the soldiers upon their return, and to never ever go to war without enough troops to win the war, secure the peace, and earn the respect of the world.”  Barack Obama, speech at 2004 Democratic Convention 

Reality:  Barack Obama plans to cut $17 billion out of our military budget.  Also as of February 1, 2012 COMBAT PAY has been cut for many in the military.  

Obama says:  “No one is pro-abortion.”  Barack Obama, speech, Oct. 5, 2004

Reality:  And yet…Barack Obama approves partial birth abortions, in which babies can be born full-term and then left to die.  “On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would ‘forbid abortions to take place.’ Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, ‘then this would be an anti-abortion statute.’”

Obama says:  “As President, I’ll invest in renewable energies like wind power, solar power, and the next generation of homegrown biofuels. That’s how America is going to free itself from our dependence on foreign oil – not through short-term gimmicks, but through a real, long-term commitment to transform our energy sector.”  Barack Obama, speech, Jul. 31, 2008 

Reality:  One word:  Solyndra…

    This is one of the best articles I’ve read in some time.

    but to this I add a quote from Gingrich:
    “I’m not surprised obama got the nobel peace prize with no accomplishments to his name – We gave him the presidency using the same resume.”

    • daves

      There is so much wrong with this article that I don’t know where to begin.

      How can you call a requirement to buy heath insurance “Government run insurance”? Makes no sense.

    • COUNTRYBOY

      THIS ARTICAL IS A SMALL EXAMPLE OF THE HARM AND LIES THAT OBAMA HAS DONE TO THE US. THE ONLY POBLEM IS IT WOULD TAKE MANNY BOOKS TO LIST ALL OF THE LIES AND DESTRUCTION HE HAS DONE TO THE US.

    • Rhonda

      So davesays what would you call it?

    • daves

      I would call it – everyone has to buy private insurance. The only government run healthcare is Medicare and VA and.

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      daves,

      The point is that the Government has no right to compel me to purchase anything.

    • Shannon

      @Retired Marine MSgt in Marana-

      In many states, it is against the law to drive a car without car insurance. So yes, the government can compel you to purchase something. In California, there is an option to put $35,000 of your own money away for accidents (aka you have to carry “evidence of financial responsibility”), instead of buying car insurance. However, a VERY small percentage of people do this, the majority purchase insurance in a communual liability program.

      This is just one example of the government compelling you to purchase something. I don’t see what the big deal is.

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Daves, This reply is to Shannon since there is no more room for comments below her reply to me.

      Shannon, Once again you have made an assumption. This time you have assumed that I, or everybody who might be unfortunate enough to live in California must buy car insurance. You (the Government) can’t force me to buy a car and therefore you can’t compel me to buy insurance for something I don’t have.

      Thanks Daves,

      LOL Shannon

    • Shannon

      @Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az-

      I don’t personally own a car, so no, I do not need to buy insurance for it or show that I am “able to pay” in case I get in an accident. However, I think you’re missing the point. You do live in a physical body, which does require maintenance and may need medical care. If the government is already compelling you to purchase car insurance to ensure that car accidents are paid for, then it should be able to compel you to carry health insurance to show that you are able to pay for services when your physical body needs a tune-up.

      34 reasons why I believe Obama is a Muslim and not Christian.

      1. Obama’s father and step-father were Muslims.
      2. Hussein is a Muslim name reserved only for Muslims by Islamic Creed.
      3. Four years of Indonesian school enrollment records reveal his religion is Islam.
      4. His children get no Christmas gifts – Muslim tradition.
      5. He wears no jewelry during Ramadan – Muslim tradition.
      6. Obama employed several Nation of Islam members in high positions on his Illinois and U.S. Senate campaign and office staffs.
      7. Senator Obama stated that Israel is the cause of all Mideast problems and he is towing the Muslim line that Israel is an apartheid state.
      8. Senator Barack & Michelle Obama have attended several Arab Fundraisers and have had meetings with Palestinian Activist, PLO/Arafat Advisor Edward Said.
      9. Senator Hillary Clinton 2008 campaign staff disclosed details of Obama’s Muslim past and concluded he concealed his prior Muslim faith and education.
      10. Candidate Obama, while running for president, made it clear that he did not support a “right of return” for Palestinian refugees. But now that he’s president, he has reneged on that promise.
      11. Obama has referred to the 57 states of America. Maybe it is just a coincidence that the Organization of the Islamic Conference has 57 states.
      12. As President he bows to the Muslim King of Saudi Arabia. The most powerful man in the world bows to no one. But the Islamic Creed demands that subservient Muslims bow.
      13. As President he does not bow to the Christian Queen of England.
      14. President Obama says there is nothing more beautiful than the Muslim call to prayer in the evening and has quoted it in fluent Arabic with perfect accent.
      15. He says that the United States was not founded as a Christian nation.
      16. Obama keeps saying things about Muslim history that is not true. Obama has said we are one of the largest Muslim countries. We are down at number 41 on the list of most Muslims in a country. Obama has said there are 7 million Muslims in America. The most liberal numbers indicate 4 million and conservative estimates are at 2 million.
      17. Obama, not only refused to have a White House celebration of the National Day of Prayer, but instead feasted the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.
      18. Obama, while celebrating the holy month of Ramadan at a White House dinner, stated that he is in favor of building the mosque near Ground Zero.
      19. Obama orders the Christian monogram “IHS” (Greek symbols for Jesus) to be covered up at the Christian school Georgetown University Gaston Hall, before giving his speech.
      20. In answering the question on whether he believed in a literal heaven or not, Obama retorted: “What I believe in is that if I live my life as well as I can, that I will be rewarded. I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die.” This is the Islamic Muslim view, not Christian.
      21. Barack Obama’s response when asked pointedly, “Who’s Jesus to you?” “Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And he’s also a wonderful teacher.” This again is the Muslim view, not Christian.
      22. President Obama gave a 2009 Cairo speech emphatically stating to the Middle Eastern world that it was “part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
      23. When it comes to Christianity, he has actually done just the opposite. Two years after his interview with Chicago Sun Times religion reporter Cathleen Falsani, on June 28, 2006, then Sen. Obama publicly perpetuated negative stereotypes of Christianity and defamed the religion and the words of its founder. From the pulpit of a church, speaking to a live audience about religious diversity, Obama sarcastically belittled America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and degraded its adherents with trite remarks typical of any atheistic antagonist, saying things like: “Whatever we were, we are no longer a Christian nation,” “The Sermon on the Mount is a passage that is so radical that our own defense department wouldn’t survive its application” and “To base our policy making upon such commitments as moral absolutes would be a dangerous thing.”
      24. If a self-proclaimed non-Muslim president would fight repeatedly for Muslims’ religious rights to the degree that our president has, don’t you think “a committed Christian” president would at least fight once for any antagonistic oppression of Christian faith and practice, too? Yet, on no occasion since taking office has President Obama stood up publicly for a single Christian individual, group, church, act or event, whom or which was being opposed or oppressed by others.
      25. Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the North Carolina pastor who was fired from his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state house of representatives after he closed a prayer “in the name of Jesus”?
      26. Why didn’t the president stand up for the children from the Christian private school who were “abruptly” ordered by a court police officer to stop praying outside the U.S. Supreme Court building?
      27. Why didn’t the president himself stand up for the human rights of the Christian missionaries and medical team in Afghanistan, including six Americans, to practice medicine and their faith, even after they were murdered by Islamic extremists?
      28. Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of the Rev. Billy Graham, who was disinvited from a Pentagon prayer service on the National Day of Prayer because of his Christian views and values?
      29. Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Greek Orthodox Church, the only church that was actually destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, as church leaders have been frustrated and fouled by New York officials who have virtually turned their backs on the reconstruction of the church near Ground Zero?
      30. Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of over 70% of Americans opposed to a Ground Zero mosque, but takes the side of Muslims who are attempting to build the Ground Zero mosque?
      31. Obama’s church (Trinity United Church of Christ) does not teach Christianity. The church guiding principles are called the “Black Value System”. Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a former Muslim and friend of Louis Farrakhan, Muslim founder and President of The Nation of Islam. Farrakhan has spoken frequently at Trinity.
      32. Reverend Wright’s “hate” sermons against America and white people are virtually identical as Farrakhan’s-who followed Malcolm X. Wright’s “hate” speeches are a blend of The Nation of Islam and Black Nationalist Liberation Theology into a subversive Christianity, not recognized by most black Christians.
      33. Obama embraced “Christianity” at this church. For 20 years he was a member and good friend to Rev. Wright. Wright married Obama and baptized his children. Rev. Wright was his mentor and gave advice until it became public knowledge during the campaign.
      34. During the week of 14-18th of January 2010, on the Nile TV broadcast “Round Table Show”, the Egyptian Foreign Minister Abul Gheit said while meeting with Obama, he swore to him that he was a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father and step-son of Muslim step-father, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Muslims, and that he was loyal to the Muslim agenda. He asked that the Muslim world show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American problems, that he would show the Muslim world what he would do with Israel.

      These 34 reasons each by themselves may not account for much. But when someone has committed all of these and more it reveals an “extremely” strong pattern.

      Growing up as a Muslim, Obama learned that according to the Qur’an it is acceptable to lie, deceive and live by a double standard provided in so doing one advances Islamic goals.

      Muslims only pretend to trust and be friends with non-Muslims; in the deepest of their Muslim hearts they have been taught that all non-Muslims are infidels.

      I believe that it is one’s actions that reveal who they are; not their words.

    • Retired USAF MSgt

      Bravo! Bravo!

    • daves

      As for Gingrich’s opinion, the former speaker insisted that Obama was “absolutely” born in the United States and is a Christian, but Gingrich also insisted the president needs to consider what he’s doing that may lead people to suspect him Muslim.

      They, the liberals, won’t comment on this article. They can’t, and won’t, stand up to reality or the truth.

      I believe that we will overcome them when we get to the polls in November and VOTE the communists, Comrade ØZebra and his entire cadre of “Fellow Travelers”, out of office.

    • Common Sense

      Actually old man, I will gladly respond! But first, can I get your take on the fact that Obama set a record for the number of Illegals deported in a single year last year?

      Can you explain to me why you oppose the Healthcare mandate when it was originally presented by the Heritage Foundation and the GOP? Why is it that back then they deemed it “personal responsibility of each person to pay their fair share” and today they deem it Socialism.

      Speaking of Government run healthcare, where does your healthcare come from?

    • Larry K

      uncommon sense!!

    • Larry K

      My health care comes from health insurance that I personally pay for and not out of a government entitlement as you imply.

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Common Sense,

      Illegal immigration is a “hot button” issue with the majority of Americans who have been polled for their views. The administration is responding to public pressure to “get something done”. The DemocRATS know that they must respond or lose votes. Their accomplishments, so far, are better than in the recent past but their motivation is political expediency.

      I don’t recall stating that I oppose the Healthcare mandate, but since you raised the question I will give you my view: My healthcare should be my responsibility. The government should have no say, whatsoever, in how I obtain that care. If I choose not to participate, or to participate. in any form of healthcare, that should be my choice. If I make a choice that is detrimental to my health or well being, it is still my choice and I will have to live with the consequences. If I choose not to participate and I have a health related event that requires hospitalization, or urgent care, I should have to bear all related costs. Again, my choice, not the Governments. As long as the government holds the purse strings, they can dictate from whom I receive care, what the quality and the amount of that care will be and whether they deem me to be deserving of that care.

      During my 20+ year career in the Marine Corps I vowed to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America and defend our country from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. In return, the government agreed to provide me with health care for life. During my two tours in Vietnam I had the opportunity to receive, on three occasions, life saving care for wounds received in battle. That care was provided for by the taxpayers of America and for that I am grateful. Part of the cost for that care came out of my pocket, the Federal Income Taxes and Social Security Taxes I paid into during that same period of time.

      After I retired from the Corps, I went to work for a large company which manufactures products used in the defense of our country. They provided me with a fantastic health plan which far exceeded the scope of my government health coverage. For that coverage, I paid what I considered to be a fair and equitable premium. That also, was my choice.

      When I retired from that last position I was once again thrust into the position of having Federal Health Care. I don’t like it, but I’m stuck with it. Hopefully, sometime in the near future, Social Security and Medicare will be replaced with voluntary privatized options.

      Regardless who the Republican candidate is, restoring the U.S. economy to the status of a “free” economy will require significant policy changes to reduce the size of government, overhaul the tax system, and transform costly entitlement programs while maintaining our military superiority. By boosting growth in the private sector, such freedom-enhancing policies are the best hope for bringing down high unemployment rates and reducing public debt to manageable levels.

      In any case, the first step in the COUNTDOWN to recovery is to
      get to the polls in November and VOTE the communists, Comrade ØZebra and his entire cadre of “Fellow Travelers”, out of office.

    • Katie

      I am going to have to disgaree- these aren’t very good points. A lot of what the article uses as substance doesn’t have anything to do with what the author is trying to prove. You can’t lure people in with “facts” and then not deliver. Disappointing article.

      If the author wanted to make an impact, it certainly was not done with these claims.

    • daves

      I have already commented on this one before:

      “What we’re talking about under a balanced approach is asking Americans whose incomes have gone up the most over the last decade — millionaires and billionaires — to share in the sacrifice everyone else has to make”

      It is not about an even playing field. It is about everyone giving up a little bit of something to get us out of debt. Budget cuts require poor and middle class to give up some government services plus we have to tighten our belts a little. What have the wealthiest given up since the recession?

      Daves has a math inadequacy, if we confiscated 100% of the top two percent of incomes , it would not cover Obama’s deficit from this year, and if you took all the top 5% income it would not put a dent in what he has run up since he got into office, do some critical thinking, please, I know it’s really hard for a Liberal to think about complex subjects.

      daves,

      You wrote:

      “What have the wealthiest given up since the recession?”

      Probably a reduction in their property values of over 50%. Probably a reduction in their IRAs, or equivalent savings, of 40 – 50%.

      Just like most of the rest of us.

      Question?

      What is more fair, 100 people who are presented with a total bill of $100.00 and who chip in $1.00 each to pay it off.

      Or, 100 people who are presented with a total bill of $100.00 and 2 of them pay approximately $38.00 and 13 of them pay the remaining $62.00. While 49 of them pay nothing.

      The “Fair Tax” would fix the disparity.

      For instance:

      Warren Buffet goes out and buys a $30,000.00 wrist watch. The “Fair Tax” is 23%. He pays $6900.00 in taxes.

      Joe, the plumber, goes out and buys a $49.00 wrist watch. The “Fair Tax” is 23%. He pays $11.27 in taxes.

      Both paid what they could afford, and both paid their fair share of the tax burden.

      Ain’t math easy!

      LOL

    • daves

      Pick anyone of these Bree and I am sure I can come up with why the authors reply is disingenuous.

    • Shannon

      I think your “facts” need to be checked. Everything in the article is just the author’s opinion on why she doesn’t like him. The quotes are taken out of context and some even support what the author of this article is trying to disprove. Poorly written. I was expecting an intellectual battle of wits. Oh well… guess I’ll have to wait.

    • Bree

      ” an intellectual battle of wits”? Don’t over due it Shannon, you’re more like a pre recording. You’ll do better to save your political theatrics for the court room.

    • daves

      You got your wish Bree, us liberals have responded. Would you care to discuss any specifics of the article now?

    • Bree

      Yes, I see that daves and all two of you responded…completely missing the point. It’s all about reality check not political discussion. Do you read with comprehension yet?

    • Katie

      @Bree- I don’t see any “reality” here. Just a bunch of nonsensical, strung-together statements with quotes that don’t match. There isn’t really much to debate, I agree, but only because this article is so poorly-written!

    • Rhonda

      Shannon you are young and stupid so I guess you will have to wait. Maybe one day you will grow up and know what you are saying.

    • Shannon

      The only stupid thing I see around here is this article and your comments.

      And how did you assume that I was young? The picture I use could be of my daughter or granddaughter. Again, you presuppose what you are trying to prove.

      Logic fail.

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Shannon,

      I’ve said this before and it still is true.
      You can’t change anybodys, well most anybodys, minds who post here. Facts and truths are just not relevant.

      obtw, If you are a grandmother, and that’s your picture — WOW!

      If you are a mother, and that’s your picture — WOW!

      If that’s a picture of your daughter, good job!

      Logic reinstated.

      No offense meant!

      LOL

    Obama has a dream just like MLK except Obama’s dream is his perfect world of socialism which has failed miserably throughout the entire world and yet we have millions of very stupid sheeply people who somehow think we can do what the rest of the world can’t and all will be well. His dream of assuring we are all equal by taking down all those who have successfully made it in life by “working” is his method. It is my hopes that one of those well to do people put an end to his dream by any fashion they feel fit as well as anyone who chooses to follow his footsteps.

    • Shannon

      Every successful country in the world operates under a combination of socialism and capitalism. When done properly, they support each other, giving people the best choices for quality and cost efficiency
      Let’s consider the following situations:

      1.The Post Office

      2.Water – The US has one of the largest water treatment systems in the world. It is run primarily by the government (aka socialism). Most Americans shower in socialized water. They cook in socialized water. They make their coffee with socialized water.

      3.Social Security – Every American is eligible for Social Security. Americans who can afford it, look to the private sector to help with their retirement. Investments in 401k’s and other private investments are worth trillions of dollars.

      4.National parks – National parks are enjoyed by nearly all Americans. National parks are purely socialist. Private land sales don’t seem to be affected.

      5.Schools – Public schools are socialist. No, that doesn’t mean they are teaching a public agenda. It simply means they are supported by tax dollars. The public has a say in what is taught. Private schools have always existed, they most likely always will.

      6.School lunches – Send your kid to school with the lunch you made or give him a couple of bucks for a socialized school lunch. It’s your choice.

      7.Libraries – Book stores might be suffering, but it’s not because of libraries.

      8.Public health care – Seniors have socialized medicine. They can see nearly any doctor. The VA has socialized medicine. They can also pay to see any doctor they want.

    Obama’s Reality is a Marxist Reality.
    Great Article. Kudos! It points out the Constant and Consistent Lying by Barack Obama and the fact he is a World Class Hypocrite!

    Barack is a Blithering Idiot or Committed Marxist. Take your choice. Either way, he must go.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the
    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)
    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

     

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST!
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25

    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!
    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
     
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    BABYLON = the HAMMER and SICKLE!
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

      2 Timothy 2:15   Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 

    Jeremiah 48: 10Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

    Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying , Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down , and shall be found no more at all.

    I am continually amazed at how Obama constantly ignores our Constitution and does what he wants and no one, not one person calls him on things. If the GOP were pulling what Obama does the libs and dems would be hollering all over the place. Yet the GOP enables Obama to do waht he wants by staying quiet and not making waves over anything he does. Who is going to stand up for the rest of us if our own party won’t?

    Great article, and comments; however, let Us not forget the “system” of mis-education[the Anti-Christs] that is teaching our leaders. Including the media, cemetary/seminarys,business,economist, and political school systems. They promote taking the power to some, and being good citizen of the state to others.Patrick Henry’s voice is more powerful than Progressive’s-We are a Christian Nation, built on Christian principles.

    Since Obama has been in office, i feel he has a psychiatric disorder but the diagnosis slip me at present. He gives thought that a psychiatric evaluation should be in order for every presidential candidate, him first! Remember Eagleberger who wa running for VP and he was dq’d due to a psychiatric disorder?

    The UK and Canada (and most of the rest of the democratic world) are doing great with our healthcare systems, thanks.

  • John Trujillo

    Comparing automobile liability insurance and mandatory health insurance is like comparing apples to baseballs. Your automobile insurance does not cover your oil changes and tire rotations. Obamacare is unconstitutional for a number of reasons but the primary one falls under the 14th Amendment that protects equal rights under the law. If any person, be they in congress or in Obama’s gooney-goo-goo family are exempt for this population control measure they call health care reform, then we all are.

    Free market health care is the solution and tha means increasing the numbers and types of providers and medical products to meet the demand of a burgeoning patient load. So simple even an affirmative action figure should be able to understand it, especially one who claims to be a Constitutional scholar.
