White House occupant not American at heart

It has been said that elections have consequences.

That phrase has never been more relevant than today in America. I would hope that, by now, it would be clear to all thinking voters in this nation just who the current occupant of the White House is.

Although, the facts were there well before his election for all to see just who he was and his vision for America. But with a dishonest national media covering for him and acting more like the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, you were expected to believe he was this messiah come to set all things right.

Did you not hear him say, “I want to fundamentally change America”? That can only mean that he does not believe the vision our founding fathers had when they met to write the Constitution, the framework of our nation.

He took the oath of office to uphold the Constitution and not to change it to his own far-left views. He believes he is above the Constitution and only refers to it when it furthers his cause.

His radical past and his association with others in his formative years have shaped his worldview and his belief that America is an unjust country. He believes that we have to redistribute our wealth to those who he believes have not had a chance to get an equal share.

He has heard this all his life, whether from his far-left radical professors or his long lost anti-capitalist father. He is a true believer.

He is not an American at heart in the traditional sense we all grew up with. He has divided the nation with class warfare and racial division.

These are tactics of divide and conquer, all tactics right out of “Rules for Radicals.” The community organizer learned his craft well.

Did you not hear him say that he was ”restrained by the Constitution” and simply not able to make changes with the stroke of a pen? It was all there to be heard.

This dictator-in-waiting has disdain for our founding principles. His views are more in line Marx or Lenin than Jefferson or Madison.

The man is a fraud and a disgrace to the office. And he is neither feared nor respected abroad.

Those of us who are conservative know that the goal of the liberal Democratic Party of today is to grow the size of government and get as many dependant as possible so as to ensure a permanent voting base. They present themselves as saviors to all those they convince are victims.

The result is more dependency on government. This ideology is not sustainable, and the cost will bankrupt the country.

We conservatives believe in less government and the self-reliance of the individual to become all he or she can be. It served us very well from the beginning.

But time is running out for us. We must restore our traditional values.

Forget your belief in party loyalty or personality and vote for who is the best for the nation. Continuing with the same political leadership is to contribute to the course of national suicide we are on.

We have one more chance to begin to set things right in the 2014 elections. If the Democrats win next time, it’s full-speed ahead to socialism. We will only have ourselves to blame.
