Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Vision of Obama all wrong for America

Independence Day marks the founding of a nation uniquely based on liberty, limited government and rights derived from our Creator. During this July 4th weekend, Americans rightly celebrate American exceptionalism and our hard-won freedom from European dominance. That’s why President Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform America” into a country of Dependence Day and European-style socialism won’t be fulfilled.

Mr. Obama’s vision of relegating free citizens to serf status under an all-powerful government is un-American at its core. He has sold this dangerous doctrine via prolific lies, distortions and class envy. But socialist economics always fails because it violates human nature. Obamanomics is no exception.

The proof is in the rotten pudding he has served up: a prolonged recession, high unemployment, staggering debt and an incoherent foreign policy. His own party in the Senate has not even produced a budget vote for more than two years. The $1 trillion stimulus has failed, and Mr. Obama wants to increase taxes to expand government even more.

Surveys show that people are not buying it, and Mr. Obama’s response has been to try to distract from this sorry record by deploying socialism’s pet, the green dragon of envy.

His latest venture into class warfare was this gem from Wednesday’s press conference:

“If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids out there who do not have college scholarships. [It] might compromise the National Weather Service. It means we might not be funding critical medical research. It means food inspection might be compromised. I’ve said to Republican leaders, ‘You go talk to your constituents and ask them, “Are you willing to compromise your kids’ safety so some corporate jet owner can get a tax break?” ‘ “

Mr. Obama smacked around corporate-jet owners three more times in a performance that would have made Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro envious. It’s a wonder he didn’t go after anyone who puts Grey Poupon on his hot dogs. Where are the guillotines when you need them?

Does anyone seriously think dunning corporate-jet owners will make a dent in our $14.3 trillion national debt?

But abetted by a media that’s a megaphone for Mr. Obama’s Marxist economics, this kind of socialist tripe plays well among left-wing-dominated unions and people dependent on working people’s dollars seized by our confiscatory tax system.

The whole socialist scheme envisioned by Mr. Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Charles E. Schumer is immoral. It is not only un-American, but it violates America’s Judeo-Christian heritage. This is not just a polite disagreement. And let’s dispense with the notion that the president is above criticism. This is America, not Europe. Excessive deference to a chief executive is a leftover from the monarchy and has no place in a nation whose Constitution begins with “We the People.”

Socialism is an elaborate socioeconomic structure that arises out of envy: It’s not fair that you have more than I do. I want it (or at least some of it) and you must give it or I’ll take it from you – at the point of a gun. If the government wields the gun, then I’m not morally culpable.

But socialism’s lure goes deeper than envy. By replacing God’s rules with man’s own, it frees man to pursue any vice he desires, no matter how perverse. In fact, the desires in and of themselves are often cited as validating consequent actions. It’s no accident that the same people promoting unlimited abortion, homosexual “marriage” and pornography are pressing for more and more government. They know that destroying moral foundations creates rich soil for government dependency.

Socialism is at bottom a rebellion against God and God’s clear words regarding morality and economics. You can find them all over the Bible but especially in the Proverbs and in the Apostle Paul’s admonition that if you don’t work, you don’t eat. That’s why so many socialist philosophers were virulently atheist or tried to co-opt God. Today’s “social justice” advocates, such as Mr. Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright, frequently invoke the Almighty for unholy purposes such as redistribution. The problem is that when man becomes a law unto himself, he winds up under other men’s tyranny.

America’s great hope is that enough people see the financial and moral abyss and will not follow Mr. Obama’s green flag of envy over the cliff. Hungary unveiled a Ronald Reagan statue this week in Budapest’s Freedom Square. It would be shameful to allow the current occupant of the White House to keep marching us toward the kind of government we defeated when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989.

A great way to celebrate July Fourth would be to get involved in a Tea Party. It will take all of us working together to stop the socialist juggernaut that seeks to turn our national birth remembrance into Dependence Day.

Ending the recession

The only way out of this recession is NOT by the power of government. It is WE THE PEOPLE who keep buying imports that is the cause. If everyone started buy American when the option exists (ie. certain styles of New Balance shoes, american tires, american made cars, frying pans, fans etc.- all items I had to work to buy american but did) and decreased their purchases of imports by 10%, there would be no recession, no unemployment and no budget deficit (the increase in american production would generate increased tax revenue and decrease government outlays of social services expense).

Please also review comments, in which I have greatly expanded the information regarding the subject in response to comments.

Politcal Paradoxical Truth – Recession

It is paradoxical that in a major recession in the United States, that the general political philosophy of the two main political parties are simultaneously correct while also exclusive.  To get the economy back on track, the general philosophy of the Republican Party is needed, but it also leaves the most vulnerable to the effects of the recession without adequate assistance.  To assist those who suffer the most negative effects from the recession, it is the general philosophy of the Democratic Party that serves the nation best. Yet, this same general philosophy isn’t effective to get the economy back on track.

How then should a voter, a citizen, to decide which general philosophy should influence their vote. And, more importantly, why can’t both these be addressed simultaneously? Why can not the politicians of any party, simply protect the most vulnerable populations AND do that which is necessary to get the economy back on track?

And, why is almost no one, and certainly no major political party or candidate for any office, stating the number one reason for the recession? Why does every newspaper, regardless of its slant on “news”, and every commentator incorrectly place the blame on numerous different but minor causes for the recession?

The recession, and the by far the number one reason why it continues AND will the the forseable future can be identified in a single word; imports.

Every single purchased import is one less job for an american, from an imported blue jeans, imported shoe, imported car, imported candy bar, imported aspirin, etc. causes the loss of american money to another country that will not come back.  The job that could have been generated for an american, will be generated in China, in Mexico, in India, in Turkey, etc.

Prior to 1978, 90% of all shoes were american made, by 1978 less than 10%, by today 1%.  Those jobs, over a million are gone.

Not one tv, dvd player, stereo, is made in USA.  Levi’s Jeans are not made in America. Most school notebook paper is now imported from Brazil. Every single purchase of these items, causes this recession, causes you or your neighbor not to have a job and contributes to the recession.

The recession, the lack of jobs is OUR fault. And, yes, lack of buying american, at least for those items that still can be bought makes a difference. Each import is a nail in the coffin of America’s future, or your future, of your children’s future.

Read EVERY label.  Don’t buy a pack of imported gum when an American made one is sitting there next ot it on the shelf.

Seek out American made items.

Don’t buy a Nike or Reebok sneaker, seek the specific style made in USA by New Balance (not all New Balance are USA made, only some styles). Buy a Red Wing American made work boot or shoe.  Buy Amercian made yellow number 2 pencils, not chinese or indian.  Buy an American made car or truck (not American company branded import masquerading as American because it has a Ford, GM, Chrysler badge).Buy an American made electric fan.

Yes, it now takes effort to be a patriotic thinking American. Failure to do so makes the recession YOUR fault.

No job? What did YOU do to save American jobs?

No job, but driving an imported car? Whose fault is it that you have no job? How many jobs did YOU send out of the country with the clothing you are wearing right now? With the food you just had during your last meal? With your last trip to a store?

Vote for America with your money.
