President Obama's America - Not Our America

President Obama does not relate to our founding fathers and the immigrant experience that are the foundation of American life. Obama is instead a citizen of the world. As such, culturally Obama is not an American which is the reason he does not relate to the 50% of people in the United States that pay taxes to support the other 50% that pay no income taxes at all. Obama was a "victim" who grew up in a dysfunctional family. His father was reportedly a drunk and a philander who abandoned his mother shortly after Obama was born. Obama's mother in a sense abandoned him too for a number of years to go to school or for work. Though Obama spent some time with his mother in Seattle and Indonesia while living with a Muslim step father, Barack Obama was actually raised by his grandparents in a white middle class family in Hawaii. Since Hawaii is a multicultural society, Barack Obama did not suffer the segregation that existed in the US. Instead, Obama was a multi-racial kid growing up in Hawaii without his parents which shaped his personality.

Barack Obama went to Occidental College in California and Harvard on scholarships where he became a well educated man. In those days, he wasn't called Barack at all. His name was Barry when he wanted to fit into American society. After he became an attorney and decided to be a Professor, Community Organizer and Left Wing Activist in Chicago, he realized that he had to be Black in Chicago politics to succeed. So the best way to become an African American in Chicago was to join a large Black church presided over by a radical Black minister who apparently hates Whites. I actually believe Obama when he said he never heard the Reverend Wright's racist rantings against Whites during the 20 years Obama attended that church because Obama sat in those pews in body only. Obama's mind was probably a million miles away as he plotted the development of ACORN and his political career. Barry Obama used that Black church and their pastor and members to become Barack Obama with a need to be loved and adored because his parents were never there for him. It is important to recognize that as soon as Obama no longer needed or could defend Reverend Wright, Obama threw him under the bus. The psychology is as clear as day. To date the Obama's have not selected a church in Washington DC because they no longer need one. Sadly, Obama is not a Christian or a Muslim. Obama is instead a Godless Socialist and opportunist that uses God and people when ever it is convenient or necessary to further his political ambitions.

President Obama grew up in a dysfunctional family that was not traditionally American. As such, Obama cannot relate to the American immigrant story because his father never became an American that succeeded in the United States. As the victim of a dysfunctional family, Obama relates to all other "victims" in society that have used victimization as an excuse to fail, even though he succeeded, rather than those who came to America with nothing including slaves, often speaking different languages, and succeeded in spite of their plight because they refused to be victims. In essence, Obama wants to provide reparations for all "victims", though he will never use that word, not just those whose ancestors were slaves. So when Obama speaks of "transformational change" it is crystal clear now that the change he is referring to is a move away from the beliefs of our founding fathers, the immigrant experience of hard work and perseverance and capitalism to the socialist model that exists in other countries.

As such, as a Socialist, President Obama believes in redistribution of income. During the campaign when he was questioned about the fact that higher taxes rarely result in more revenues for government, (again Economics 101) he acknowledged that historical fact; but said it still would be fairer to take more from the "rich" which he defines as any family making more than $250,000 a year to "spread the wealth" as he told Joe the Plumber. Clearly, President Obama does not understand Economics 101. Making the "rich" poor will never help the poor.

President Obama advocates allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire at the end of 2010 and raising taxes of one sort or another even more to make it more "fair" and or for social engineering purposes. When those tax cuts expire, the average combined federal and state tax burden on the 50% of Americans that pay income taxes will grow to more than 50% in 39 US states. So in Obama's socialist America, full of victims, the goal is to have 50% of working Americans give up 50% of their income to support the other 50% of Americans that pay no income taxes at all. Obama's Socialist America is the 50/50/50 America, derived from his conflicted and dysfunctional family background and experiences, not the America of our founding fathers or our immigrant ancestors.

Those of us who believe in the America of our founding fathers and immigrant ancestors must stand strong in opposition to President's Obama's Socialist America not just for our children and grandchildren; but for all Americans even those that support Barack Obama because they will be the biggest losers if President Obama succeeds in driving the "transformational change" he champions making them wards of the state and the rest of us slaves working to support a federal government with an insatiable appetite for our money. As Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain once said, "Socialism works just fine until the government runs out of other people's money". There is no doubt that President Obama has a grand Socialist scheme for America that is the result of his experiences. It is surely not the America of our fore fathers.
