“Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington… we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor.” — Barack Obama, October 2008
Has he succeeded? Let’s see.
His campaign to fundamentally transform the U.S. is in full operation on the border, where his extra-Constitutional action to grant amnesty to young illegals — called Dreamers — has drawn tens of thousands of illegals across the border… along with their Third World diseases. These illegals are now being shipped across America, where they are dumped out to spread their diseases and become drains on society that scarf up what few low-wage jobs there are, and consume social services. Even some of his most ardent supporters now get it.
Obama continues his push for amnesty, which would benefit the large corporations, the unions and the Democrat voter base. His economic policies of profligate Federal Reserve money printing and government spending prop up Wall Street, create bubbles and stifle economic growth. Those same policies, combined with his signature achievement (Obamacare), kill jobs that would be held by the secretary, the janitor and the men and women on the factory floor. America is becoming a society of part-time jobs.
There are more Americans than ever on the public dole. Millions would be starving if not for government welfare programs, which have done nothing but replace the soup lines of the first Great Depression. Money printing continues; and it is nothing more than a great transfer of wealth to the elites and a tax on the poor and middle class, who see their savings gaining nothing and the prices of the things they buy skyrocketing.
This second Great Depression is showing no signs of letting up and looks to run longer and deeper than the first. There is no economic growth, and there has not been for nearly seven years.
This woman wonders why she alone is shouting into the wind.
“Am I the only one in this community that’s out here, that watches the news… I feel alone in this, and I’m very saddened by it,” she said.
Many of us feel the same way.
