(NaturalNews) Most Americans don’t want to believe they could elect a president who would actively seek to undermine the country and destroy many of our fundamental institutions, but after nearly seven years of onetime community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as president, millions of voters are convinced that he came to office specifically with an agenda to take the United States down several notches.
In fact, many Americans believe that Obama even admitted as much, albeit in a cryptic sort of way, when he declared just five days before the November 2008 election that he wanted to “fundamentally transform” the country (see here).
Was that just “in the moment” electioneering? Let’s take a closer look at Obama and his record, and see if he has pursued policies and legislation that have made America stronger or weaker.
- Obamacare.This one piece of legislation has essentially upended the entire health industry, and there is just no arguing it or denying it. But this “reform” law did not deliver any of what Obama promised – universal coverage, lower annual deductibles, lower monthly premiums (even the newly covered and currently subsidized enrollees have to paysomething whereas before, when they were uninsured, they paid nothing), and lower overall healthcare costs. What’s more, the healthcare industry and American consumers hate it and would like to see it repealed, but that isn’t resonating with a tone-deaf, ideologically driven president.
- Unlimited immigration.Beginning shortly after he won reelection, Obama issued an unconstitutional executive order – an action he claimed repeatedlyprior to the election that he had no authority to do. What makes this harmful? Mass immigration of poor, uneducated third-world people who come into the U.S. not to assimilate with our culture but to keep their own and demand that U.S. taxpayers subsidize them.
Now, despite the fact that prior to the election the federal courts repeatedly upheld an injunction against the president’s policy, the White House hasn’t changed it’s policy one iota. Deportations of illegal immigrants under the policy have been dramatically reduced, even as scores more pour across the Southwest border, and the number of Border Patrol agents is decreasing.
Does this sound like a man who is serious about preserving the integrity of American sovereignty and culture?
- Not serious about terrorism.Obama talks a good game when it comes to lecturing the American people (and Republicans) about his so-called “strategy”to defeat ISIS, which he keeps saying is working, but which top military officials have condemned as ineffectual and rudderless?
After terrorist attacks such as those in Paris, any U.S. president who does not double down on efforts to eliminate the entity responsible – especially when the same group is known to have a presence in the United States, is not serious about protecting his countrymen and, in fact, may even be inviting harm upon them. Say what you will about the Bush Administration, but in the aftermath of 9/11 the president and Congress created the Department of Homeland Security, beefed up border security and ramped up intelligence collection, even to the point of illegality, ostensibly so that there would be no follow-on attacks.
