Tranforming The United States - The Right Way

Socialist President Obama wants to transform the United States into a European style Socialist nation with a bigger, more intrusive government to control every aspect of daily life.   ObamaCare is the personification of the big government take over of our economy and lives, since health care represents 1/6 of our economy.  The big problem with Obama's plan is that Socialism has failed everywhere in the world it has been tried, including Europe.   We see the end result of the cradle to grave nanny state, as many countries in Europe are either bankrupt, or headed toward bankruptcy, as is the case with the United States, as a result of 100 years of Socialist creep.   

The reality is that Socialism always leads to a loss of freedom and a lower standard of living for the people it is intended to help.   In Europe, people speak of the "authorities" separate and apart from them.   There is no concept of "WE THE PEOPLE"; but rather the know all, do all, ruling elite class above everyone else.   This attitude that puts a distant government, above the people and not as part of them, may emanate from years of monarchs that ruled by divine right.   This is clearly not an American attitude. 

While we do need to transform the United States, it is not toward Socialism with big government, high taxes and more regulations and less freedom; Obama's plan, but rather toward Constitutional limited government and free market capitalism, not Obama's crooked, crony capitalism.   We have to roll back 100 years of Socialism and get back to the values of marriage, family, entrepreneurship, hard work, honesty and right from wrong.  This does not mean the idyllic images portrayed on TV in the 50's and 60's that portrayed Ozzie and Harriet, or Happy Days, but rather a United States that recognizes American exceptionalism and diversity.  

We need to go back to the Melting Pot concept,  that assumes that no matter what country, or heritage in our backgrounds,  once in the United States, we come together to form a new American personality, bonded by common values and the English language.    This means scrapping the Salad Bowl notion that is designed to celebrate our differences, rather than embrace a new identity that is uniquely American.  While this Blogger speaks three languages,  I know that national identity requires that one language, in this case English, must be our national language to bond our people.   This is not an insult to anyone speaking another language; but rather a recognition that we are one people and one country with a common culture and language, in addition to whatever other heritage we may individually possess.

Many immigrants came to the United States, with nothing, before the welfare state was devised and became successful business owners by working very hard and practicing delayed gratification for the longer term good.   Their children and grandchildren developed even further by pursuing education that their parents often never had.   The notion of going on Welfare, or accepting Food Stamps was considered disgraceful and was never viewed as an acceptable way of life until Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal and Lyndon Johnson's Great Society that created millions of Americans permanently dependent on government to buy votes.  

Today, we have millions of Americans on Welfare and about 43 million Americans receiving Food Stamps, a record number.   Welfare has destroyed the Black family as 7 out of 10 Black children are born out of wedlock.   4 out of 10 White children are also born our of wedlock.  The poverty rate has actually gone up since Obama was elected President.  25 million Americans are either unemployed, under employed working part time that want full time work, or they have just given up looking up for work altogether.   This is Obama's America.   In just three years, this is the United States created by Socialist President Obama.  

Further, it is an outright lie that the "rich", defined by Obama as singles earning $200,000 or more and married couples earning $250,000 or more do not pay their "fair share" of income taxes.   Repeat, Obama is a LIAR when he says the "rich" do not pay their "fair share".   In fact, it is these Americans that pay 70% of all income taxes paid in the United States, while nearly 50% of Americans, Obama's PEEP's, pay no income taxes at all.   If we want to talk about fairness, then all Americans need to pay at least some income taxes; but that will never happen as long as Socialists remain in government.   The reality is that we have a progressive income tax gone wild. 

Yes, we do need to "transform" America; but it is not Socialist President Obama's vision that should prevail because it will lead to poverty and misery in the United States the same as has occurred in other countries.    We have to take back our country to prevent the bankruptcy of our nation.   We don't want to end up as Greece with riots in our streets.   To save our nation, we need to elect Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation.    This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and jobs again in our country.  

We need to transform the United States, the right way and that is not Obama's way.   We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by sweeping these Socialists, including President Obama, that are bankrupting our nation, out office.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   We have to clean out the barn to transform our nation.   We have work to do to get our country back on track.
