First Rule - Do No Harm

The first rule in life, business and government should be Do No Harm.  Generally, people who screw up in life end up with dysfunctional families and often times live in poverty.   Managers who do a poor job of managing a business sometimes lose their jobs and or cause a company to go out of business.  Politicians in the US who make poor decisions and or who implement bad policies negatively impact the American people and our nation as a whole.  We have seen this premise in action, big time, during the last 5 years of the Obama Presidency. 

Let me count the ways.   Obama's borrow, tax and spend Socialist Schemes have pro longed the Recession.  We have the highest poverty rate and the lowest labor participation rate in three decades thanks to Obama's economic shenanigans.  Blacks and Hispanics in America have really suffered as their unemployment rate is double the national rate.   50% of young people graduating from university, Obama supporters, can't find jobs.   There are still millions of Americans unemployed, under employed working part time that want full time work and or who have just given up looking for work altogether.  Obamanistas, particularly at the EPA and other agencies are job killers.  The Middle Class in America is worse off today than the day Obama took office in 2008.   So much for hope and change. 

Rather than dealing with the 30 million people that did not have health insurance, ObamaCare is destroying the best health care system in the world.  About 6 million Americans that had health insurance have already had their policies cancelled and that number is growing.  Americans cannot keep their current plans and doctors as promised by Obama.   That is the reason Obama has been recognized as the biggest liar in the country.  Obama's attempt to take over one sixth of the US economy is a dismal failure.   While those getting subsidies and those with pre-existing conditions may be better off as a result of ObamaCare, all other Americans are paying more and are far worse off related to their health care.  Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress have really made a mess of our health care system. 

Obama's foreign policy has diminished America's position in the world.  This is especially true in the Middle East where Iran inches closer to nuclear weapons and China asserts itself in the South China Sea because Obama is weak.  Obama's notion of leading from behind creates a vacuum in the world, which the Iranians, Russians and Chinese are more than willing to fill.  This is dangerous for the United States and our allies.  While Bin Laden may be dead, Al Queda has grown in 12 or more countries as a bigger threat to the United States than before Obama was President.  The United States is not safer today as a result of Obama's inexperience and naive foreign policy. 

Finally, the United States is one day closer to economic collapse and bankruptcy because Obama refuses to end deficit spending and deal with Entitlement Reform.   Our $17 Trillion National Debt, with no end in sight and $100 Trillion of unfunded liability for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, ObamaCare and local, state and federal pensions is unsustainable.  The recent Budget Deal, that actually raises spending as a result of Socialist demands and Republican complicity, is a disaster for our country.   This Blogger sees nothing in the works that would end this Debt Spiral and trajectory.  When economic collapse comes and it will come based on what we see today, we will have civil strife on our streets and then all bets are off. 

We need to add to the oath of office for all elected officials, including the President, "I pledge to do no harm to the American people and the United States so help me God.".   Clearly, the oath of office they all take now is not sufficient to protect the interests of the American people and our country.  Obama and his Socialist pals in government are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any foreign enemy we have ever faced.  Republicans (RINOS) who vote for Socialist Schemes are not much better.   The first rule in life, business and government should be DO NO HARM.  Clearly, President Obama just does not govern in accordance with this rule because he has made a real mess of many things.
