I have held my tongue (or fingers) long enough. I will lay it all out for you. Warning: if you are an Obama supporter, prepare to be offended.
A year ago, when Obama began to rise in popularity in the Presidential race, I didn’t really believe he could be elected. I just knew he was way too liberal. I was so wrong. On election night, I cried. When he took the oath of office, I thought, “Maybe it won’t be too bad.” Again, I was wrong. He didn’t waste any time flushing our freedoms down the toilet.
If you voted for change, then change you will have:
This week, on his overseas tour, he actually apologized for America.
He said Americans are arrogant. I think he’s confusing patriotism and pride with arrogance.
He said America is not a Christian nation. I think he’s trying to make his dreams a reality.
“If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”– Noah Webster, History of the United States, 1832
“We need religion as a guide. We need it because we are imperfect, and our government needs the church, because only those humble enough to admit they’re sinners can bring to democracy the tolerance it requires in order to survive.”– President Ronald Reagan
“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.” — President George Washington
He wants to cut back on military spending at a time when many of our enemies are increasing their military strength, arsenal, and threats.
…a man owed it to his neighbors and to his country to serve when duty called, and he should never ask about reward. “You just ask what they want you to do. It’s your way to pay for the privilege of living in Texas and the United States of America.”
– Elmer Kelton in The Buckskin Line
He is actually closing Guantanamo Bay and bringing terrorists here, to American soil!
He is trying his hardest to socialize all aspects of our lives: health care, banking, industry, etc.
“Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!”
— Thomas A. Edison, inventor
He fills his cabinet with tax-cheats, while at the same time raising our taxes.
He wants to waste time talking to terrorists who have absolutely no intentions of talking peace.
He is disrespectful to our greatest ally, Great Britain.
Obama does not love his country. He apparently ran for President, not to defend, protect, and strengthen our nation, but to change it from what our great Founding Fathers intended. He has no loyalty to the United States. He is not patriotic. He is embarrassed to be an American.
Any President who takes the Oath of Office should have so much respect for that Office that he will do everything in his power to protect our freedoms, to defend our Constitution, and to preserve the American way of life.
I know that our country is not perfect. We have our faults. But we also have a great history, and we have something very precious that should not be taken from us: FREEDOM.
If you agree with me, make your voice heard. Attend a Tax Day Tea Party in your area and show the government that you will not sit idly by with your head in the sand while our very way of life is wrestled from our grasp. Get out and DO something.
“It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men.”— Samuel Adams
“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” — Thomas Paine, author
