Just more than a year ago, we elected as president a man who talked smoothly but who had little experience worthy of
note. Oh, he had some experience organizing agitators - including ACORN - and as a freshman senator. So where are we
now, a year later?
Energy policies are endangering our country. If we are to stay strong and independent, we must develop and use our own
resources as much as possible. Obama, on the basis of a debunked global-warming theory, continues to refuse to develop
these resources. His offshore drilling speech is only to gain votes for cap and trade. Actual drilling is years away,if ever.
Our national debt is increasing beyond reason. He will spend more in his first two years than Bush spent in eight. The
national debt will increase to $20 trillion by 2019, according to his budget.
After hearing black-liberation theology in church, and chumming with Marxist professors and radical students (his own
words), one of his main themes is redistribution of wealth. Take from those who have worked hard and give to those who
have failed to do so.
Security, the primary responsibility for a president, has been decreased. He has not been tough on Iran, for example,but castigates our allies. He has been weak on important security issues and weapon programs.
Chicago-style politics has been brought to Washington. He and his advisers harass those who disagree with his policies.
They seek to intimidate their adversaries.
Job creation has been stymied, except in the government arena. Business owners fear additional taxes and government
mandates, and hesitate to increase their staffs because of projected costs. His policies are antithetical to private
job growth. Obama has taken over American companies: automobiles, banks, mortgage companies, college loans, etc.
Socialism in motion.
His planned amnesty for millions will further harm our Social Security and Medicaid programs, which already are headed
Most important, our personal freedoms are under assault. He promotes big government, which means more regulations and
government control as well as increased taxes and loss of personal freedoms.
