Socialist agenda afoot

People who get upset about those of us who criticize the Obama administration are missing the point.

Make no mistake: Before leaving office, our president wants to turn this country irreversibly toward socialism. He made this clear when he said he would fundamentally transform this country.

Look at where he’s spent his political capital. Instead of concentrating on our economy and jobs when he had control of Congress, he passed the Affordable Care Act without a single Republican vote. He’s almost doubled our nation’s debt, increasing the future tax burden on all of us. His policies have significantly contributed to the number of people living in poverty and receiving welfare. He has instigated a dysfunctional Congress with his negative tactics. He has used class warfare to divide the nation. He’s pushing for strict gun controls.

If it were up to him, Fox News and other conservative, but balanced, news agencies would not exist. The Internal Revenue Service scandal is all about silencing conservative voices – and he told Bill O’Reilly that it’s Fox’s fault the IRS scandal was even an issue, and there’s not a smidgen of evidence of corruption. This, while there are several investigations still in progress.

Obama has used executive orders to bypass the Constitution more than any president before him. He has reduced our military and is pushing for more, causing the entire world to be nervous. So much is being made of his inept foreign policy regarding Iraq, Syria and Russia, and the mistakes he has made reducing U.S. influence, but he doesn’t care. It’s not important to him. Rather, it’s a welcome distraction that takes our attention off the items on his socialistic agenda, such as the problematic Affordable Care Act.

For more than 200 years, this country has been the greatest on Earth, and unless you feel socialism is better for our children, please think before you vote!
