Obama's true colors show

  • Follow Letters

President Obama, being true to his socialist/communist upbringing, began to assert those beliefs in his policies, words, and actions soon after being elected. He didn’t tell us socialism/communism would be part of his promise to fundamental change to America, but many understood this anyway.

Therein lies the roots of my opposition to this man. How can Democrats continue to support a man who so obviously has set out to ruin our country? A man who looks the American people in the eye, and lies to them repeatedly without hesitation. A man who appears to be working to tear down the institutions Americans have held to be necessary, valuable and dear.

To Democrats, their party takes precedence over God, country or anything else! My question to them is this: When and why did Democrats stop being Americans? How and why did the national news media decide en masse to drop responsible reporting in favor of spin for the Obama administration? We are more than $17 trillion in debt. By the year 2020, the interest alone will be over $1 trillion annually!

This administration has released at least 36,000 illegal criminal aliens back into our society. Approximately 52,000 unescorted minor children, along with 39,000 accompanying adults with children, have recently crossed our border and are being detained on military bases, later to be dropped in individual states, creating an enormous strain on those states. Someone, somewhere is orchestrating this crisis!

This president has not bothered to visit the border or the affected states to assess the crisis situation, but is too busy golfing or fund raising for the Democratic Party, or perhaps thinking of new ways to destroy America.

Why is the debt so high and who caused it?

Since Reagan, we've cut the top tax rate in half. Also, the majority of those in the top few percent no longer make their money as wages, which cut their maximum tax rate 79%, plus they don't have payroll taxes on their earning, cutting their percentage even further. They also take in a much larger share of the income, making it where those that bring in the vast majority of the income face a maximum tax rate of 15%. From 1945 to 1969, corporations paid an average 4.22% of GDP per year in taxes. From 2009 through 2013, they paid an average 1.3% of GDP despite record profits. No matter what the maximum rate on paper says, in 2013, the effective average corporate tax rate was 12.6%. In 1960, payroll taxes were 2.6 of GDP in taxes, in 2013, they were 5.7%. From 1996 through 2001, income taxes brought in 9.12% of GDP in revenue. From 2009 through 2013 they brought in 6.9% of GDP in revenue. 2 wars that are estimated to cost between $4 trillion to $6 trillion. Real defense spending that's roughly $1.2 - $1.4 trillion per year when we've had revenue as low as $2.1 trillion in 2009, which was lower than 2005's revenue, and in constant dollars was less than 1998'a revenue. Thanks to tax cuts and the myth of trickle down economics, we have a revenue problem. A very bad one. We also can't keep spending over 50% of the military spending of the entire world.

Where do you think these evil corporations get the money to pay taxes?
The final consumer (you and me) PAYS ALL TAXES ! The Corporations and businesses only collect he money for the federal government. Most corporations have a profit margin of 3% to 7%. You toe need an economics lesson.

The Civil War: The only

The Civil War: The only relatives I know of who fought in it, including those by marriage, fought for states' rights.

Jamestown was settled in 1607, Plymouth in 1620, ultimately 2 different types of settlers, 2 different climate conditions, 2 different states. The centralized government shoe does not fit all in a country this big and diverse.

GEE EEL, if I could only

GEE EEL, if I could only figure out what Democrates believe I might be offended. I am mostly offended by what they DO. Obama was all for, open government, cutting federal debt, honesty in government. As President Obama gives us lies, secretive government with secretive agencies, (NSA spying, black out of reporters from illegal alien processing centers, stating members of his political office are immmune from subpoena etc) ran up the debt by $7 trillion dollar's. Want me to go on? Then we have Democratic idiots like Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, all for open boarders until Obama plans to send some illegals to his state. Harry Reid getting up on the Senate floor telling Americans the Boarder is secure. Ried is either insane or stupid beyond belief and thinks the American people are to! On short the Democratic party has become the home of lying, manipulative, hypocritical, incompetent jerks! I am glad you are proud of this mess!

Mr Smock, Once again you have written a great letter...

Mr. Smock, Once again you have written a great letter that hits the nail on the head.

Obama deceived many people into believing he was somehow different than what he is. The ones who were deceived, there were some on the right as well as most of the left, failed to look at his background and record to see what he really was. He was so slick that no body had the guts to look behind the facade. Like a magician, he relied on people to see what they wanted to see rather than what is real.

Obama promised a period of prosperity, bipartisanship, and things would get better for America. We got:

--five years of reckless spending

--a wholesale assault on domestic energy industries

--endless abuses of executive authority and other lawless incursions on the Constitution.

--unprecedented divisiveness and polarizations across economic, racial and gender lines

--America's declining power and prestige in the world

--an explosion in the welfare state

--the worst economic recovery in 60 years

We can expect thing it only get worse since he doesn't have to face the voters again. All he has to do now is cater to and implement the desires his real constituency---the radical left who are fellow followers of Alynski and adherents to the Cloward -Pevin strategy. The former is known as the father of the community organizers (originally known as community agitators) and the latter were professors under whom Obama studied at Columbia University.

a marxist can never be anything but a marxist

"Darkness at Noon" by Arthur Koestler shows how these people
work and think
they use everything- race relations, the economy, religion, food prices...
to promote their own agenda
they have ruined many countries, but even after so much failure,
marxists still have the audacity to think they're the ones
the ones the world has been waiting for
"audacity" speaks
"...the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth."
my goodness...marxism speaking

EEL, Let me try to explain why I think you are offended....

EEL, Let me try to explain why I think you are offended and hurt by some of the comments here based on the long and proud linage of patriots you have in your family tree.

I think you maybe somewhat mentally stuck in a time warp.

You see, today's democrats and liberals are not the democrats and liberals of yesterday. Beginning with the Progressive Movement of Teddy Roosevelt and then going through the liberals of Wilson, FDR, JFK, and LBJ these leftists for the most part loved America and what it stood for. They did not want to tear down America. They just wanted to make some changes.

Beginning in the middle to late 1960's the radical left took over the Democratic party. These people did not like what America stood for and wanted to destroy what the country was built upon. These people want to tear down America. Just look at what their goals are in relation to the Constitution. They chose to ignore it.

Obama and Hillary are products of this movement. They do not want to follow the Constitution because they believe it is not relevant since it was written by, "slave holding, white men". They do not believe in the equal division of the three branches of government as established by the Founders.

One has to go no further than Obama's words of "if Congress does not act and do what I want, I will go around them" to see he believes more in the rule of man than he does in the rule of law--that being the Constitution. He believes that he and he alone knows what is best and if Congress and the Constitution are impediments he will act by ignoring both.

EEL, I hope that you will look and see that the Democratic party has been seized by people who are radically different from your ancestors and most likely different from what your brave ancestors fought. I would bet your ancestors believed in what the Founders believed and not what Obama, Holder, Valerie Jarrett et al. believed.

One more point, Alynski was one who wanted to destroy America. His tactics were not just organizing for action, but tactics organizing for destruction. Hillary was a disciple of Alynski and had met with him personally and she has never waivered from her belief in him and his goals.

Thoughtful and accurate post. I hope all of the liberals think about what you said. The main point is that liberals in the past loved America but the progressives that now control the democratic party are against the founding principles of America and seek to destroy her.

Sorry EEL, but people such as you who feel that I the wealthy don't earn what they have, and the poor should be given something for doing noting, ARE un-American. That philosophy goes against everything this nation was founded on. It KILLS the American dream of "if you work hard, you can accomplish your dreams." If it offends you to be called un-American, then stop defending un-American policies.

That's true EEL a civil

That's true EEL a civil society should be able to civilly disagree but it seems we aren't that civil. You have to admit the Dem party of today is not like the party of Carter or Clinton. The Dems have let progressives take over the party from liberals and old Dems, much like evangelicals took over the Rep party. The new Dem party isn't liberal,I wish it were. I cant put much faith in either party. I do understand why people are now hesitant with Dems, because communist do caucus with Dems (always have) but now they have louder voice and Obama as an admitted neoMarxist - unless he was lying in his books. Really no different than racist caucus with Rep.

I was more offended when posters questioned my sobriety and sanity. You can question my patriotism all day long because I question my own patriotism. My wife and I have discussed moving out of the country because of disgust, but that is just frustration. I support America isn't synonymous with me supporting my govt.

Patriotism: "the love of and devotion to one's country and its ideals."

deestafford made the best comment, so I'll try keep this short. It's too bad you're offended, yet still defending being a "today" liberal.

Christ taught us "By their fruits, ye shall KNOW THEM." That's by their works and what they produce, NOT their words. Even if you're not a Christian, that is GREAT advice!! We shouldn't always believe what people say; especially when their actions tell a far different story! Liberals talk like they're patriotic, but by their actions; we know them. Everything they do today is to weaken THIS Country and "level the playing field" with the rest of the world.

Liberals are always quick to judge America and condemn her, mostly her past; but rarely do they speak a positive word about her, unless it's a police they've implemented. Because speaking positive of America, doesn't assist them in the radical change they desire! Several well known liberals have written books about how to destroy America's system; and developed plans to do just that; it's THEIR words, not mine. Alinsky, Cloward-Piven?? Simply put, they do not love the traditional, God-fearing America. What they love, is THEIR VISION of what America can be, with the full implementation of their policies!! This, they have in common with every evil dictator who has existed, who also believed THEIR policies were best for everyone! But that is NOT the way this REPUBLIC was established, period!!

So, don't blame conservatives for liberals being labeled unpatriotic; blame the actions of your own party!! You SHOULD be offended by them!!

OBAMA
Unpublished

I think we're now seeing what Obama meant when he told the Russian that "after the election I can be more flexible". Obama and his Obamabots believe that communism is the correct path for America. Just like the Soviet Union the leaders enjoyed a life far better than the peons. Obama and his wealthy supporters know that after turning this country communist they'll still enjoy the lifestyle they flaunt over the unwashed masses. The communists controlled the media just like Obama is doing now. The so called fourth estate that was supposed to keep Americans informed is now a modern day extension of Pravda. Spewing the lies that Obama puts forth as fact and the Obamabots believe every bit of it.
The liberals that spit on soldiers returning from Vietnam now are in control of the Democratic party. They understood that change was best done from inside the system than from outside. They no longer spit on soldiers directly they now do it indirectly. Can you imagine a soldier fighting in Afghanistan getting his pink slip? The sole purpose of this is to give them a slap in the face instead of spitting in their faces.
Obama and his ilk are now in the process of dismantling the best fighting force in the world so we can be defenseless against our enemies. They do this because they have a deep seated hatred of America and want to see it destroyed. What other reason could there be?
