“2016 Obama’s America”–a mini-rant


And now, appropriate or not, I feel a moral responsibility to present a mini-rant here–not about my church, or about religion in general, but about something that is hugely important. I may not persuade anyone who reads this blog, but I need to share what I believe. This is my opinion, and I am responsible for it.

Have you seen the movie “2016 Obama’s America”? I saw it with 4 friends on Friday. You need to go see it.

Does Pres. Obama not see that America really is the “Shining City on a Hill,” where even the poorest citizen lives in a higher standard than most people in the Third World countries? America was not taken over by exploiters, whose purpose was to use its resources for their own gain. Once our founders declared Independence, we were here to build a country such as had never existed before on earth, where its people had as much freedom as possible, and were governed by its own representatives. It has been a country that developed the greatest economy in the world by a system of free enterprise, where anyone with a good idea could invent something, provide a service, find a better way to power our industries and transport our goods, or communicate information, and can not only prosper himself and his employees, but improve the standard of living of the entire country–or the world.

We built a country from the bottom up, admittedly at the expense of the native people who were already here, and in our early years, by using slaves. But since 1865, we have done all in our power to enable these people to have the same opportunities as anyone else to become the best individuals that they are capable of being, if they are willing to work for it.

The first Americans may have come here as colonists from England, France, and Spain, to develop the natural resources of the land for the benefit of those empires, but once we became the Republic of the United States of America, we were building a home for our descendants and all who wanted to come here to make a new start. Unfortunately, Mr. Obama does not see the difference. In fact, he appears to hate America and wants to bring it down to the level of the “Third World.” I guess he believes that if no one has more than the rest of the world, there will be peace, and no one will be able to take over another.

Nothing could be farther from the truth! Why should we feel guilty for our success? Why would anyone want to regress to a common level with the rest of the world, seeing the conditions in which most of it lives, and has been unable and unwilling to drag itself up from? Have all our dreams and struggles been for nothing? Will we tear down the Shining City on a Hill?

  1. I agree with your assesment. I saw the movie last weekend and actually there was nothing in there that surprised. All through his initial campaign for President in 2007, he dropped hints along the way. You saw for yourself in the movie, D’Souza actually uses Obama’s own words from his audio book, Dreams From My Father. What does Obama say to himself at that gravesite, “I stood between the two graves, my choice was clear, I would make my fathers cause, my cause, his dreams would be my dreams.” Of course, I am writing this from memory, but the gist of it is correct. Then he told Joe the Plumber about “spreading the wealth around”; he then went on to make a chilling statement: “In five days, we will fundamentally change America”. It chilled me to the bone when he said it…I know what it means to fundamentally change something. And every American should have caught this, but they were so blinded by his lofty rhetoric, they ignored all the warnings. Shame on them. We had so many hints; the church he attended, the company he kept, and those who were mesmerized chose to ignore the warning signs of a marxist idealogue.

    Will they wake up this election? My God, I hope so! No one wants America fundamentally changed into something she is not. We LOVE our freedom. It is the same freedom that Jesus offered us at the cross and the same freedom God the father offered the Jews so many centuries ago througth the voice of Joshua; “choose ye this day, whom you will serve, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” FREEDOM TO CHOOSE OUR OWN DESTINY, AS A COUNTRY AND A PEOPLE!

    Here’s to a Romney/Ryan presidency, where freedom shall once again reign in our great land! May God bless America!

    1. Thank you, thank you, Kathleen! I felt uneasy when Obama first started talking about “transforming our country,” angry when he started using executive power, “reconciliation” rules, and deals to force his programs down our throats. When I heard him say to Joe the Plumber that he wanted to “redistribute the wealth” in America, warning bells went off in my mind right away. And that was before he got elected!
      I feel good, safe, and proud when I imagine Romney-Ryan taking over in January 2013. I pray that enough people will have the courage to say “Thanks, but no thanks” to Obama’s Progressive/socialist/Marxist ambitions, and will sweep Mr. Romney into office in November.
      By the way, if it shows in a theatre near you, consider going to see Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged Part 2” on October 12. I had to wait for the DVD of “AS-Pt. 1”, but my local theatre is showing Part 2 next month!–Kaye
