One Nation Under Obama

The Adoration of the Golden Calf'

This is an excellent essay on how Obama is replacing God with government.  It is the Progressive-Communist way.

Obama Wants You To Thank His God – Government

Obama keeps trying to rewrite American history. The latest was cutting the words “that this nation under God,” out of the Gettysburg Address, when he read the document in a PBS special.

On November 19, 1863 (in a speech that every schoolboy in the land once memorized by heart), Abraham Lincoln said we should “highly resolve… that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom.” In the expurgated (Obamaburg) version, Lincoln’s words became “that this nation (under no one in particular) shall have a new birth of freedom.”

This has been a consistent pattern throughout his presidency.

In 2010 and 2013, the president edited the Declaration of Independence by omitting the reference to “their Creator.” Thus, Jefferson’s “That all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” became “That each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights.” When? Where? By whom? The answers might be found in “Dreams of My Marxist, Kenyan Father.”
In 2011, Obama left God out of his Thanksgiving message entirely. On other occasions, God became a bit player with a walk-on part – with “the community” or “those who work in soup kitchens and homeless shelters” in the lead role.

At the University of Indonesia in Jakarta in 2010, Obama told students that our national motto is “e pluribus unum” (out of many, one.). In reality, it’s “In God We Trust.” If the president recited the National Anthem, the last stanza would become, “Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, and this be our motto in unum is our trust.”

In a 2009 press conference in Ankara, Turkey, our national turkey claimed, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.” In June, 2007, the future president told CBS: “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just.” He went on to explain that America is also “a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation and a Buddhist nation.” Why not also Zoroastrian nation, a Baha’i nation and a Wiccan nation?

How many Buddhists were delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787? None – though 51 out of the 55 were members of Christian churches. Did the Mayflower Compact mention the Koran? And the Pilgrims, Puritans, Quakers and pioneers who pushed their way west were inspired by what – the Bhagavad Gita? If you visit the U.S. cemetery in Normandy, see if you can spot a Muslim crescent.

In his Ankara speech, Obama also said Americans “will convey our deep appreciation to the Islamic faith… which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including in my own country.” (The president’s Islamophilia compliments his Christophobia.) The greatest impact Islam had on America was in Midtown Manhattan on September 11, 2001.

Both Obama’s administration and his party are implacably hostile to the faith of our fathers. The Democrats have gone from the party of FDR (whose D-Day prayer asked God to give our soldiers “steadfastness in their faith”) to the party of multicultural pagans and anti-Christian bigots.

A majority of delegates to the 2012 Democratic National Convention tried to drop a passing reference to God from their platform. Sensing a political disaster looming just 10 weeks before the election, Obama ordered his minions to backtrack.

The United States Air Force Academy recently removed God from the cadets’ honor pledge. (Wonder whose idea that was?) The FBI has formed a partnership with the stridently anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center, which considers “Christian fundamentalists” as much a threat to our way of life as al-Qaeda.

The Pentagon (under Obama, that little engine of diversity that knows no rest) tried to ban the distribution of Bibles at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and prayers that mention Jesus at Arlington National Cemetery, but reversed course after a Congressional outcry. Overall, it’s no exaggeration to speak of a search and destroy mission against manifestations of faith in the military.

From the repeal of don’t-ask-don’t-tell to support for same-sex marriage to ObamaCare (which would compel religious employers to violate their conscience or the law, by providing contraceptives and abortion services to workers), it’s a far-reaching assault on the Judeo-Christian ethic.

Like the Golden Calf the Children of Israel made while Moses was receiving the law at Sinai, Obama is making a new God for the masses to worship – big government, the Golden Calf state. “Praise Washington from whence all blessings flow. Praise it all peons here below.”

The president’s policies are designed to maximize dependency – government as the source of all blessings.

Under Obama, the food-stamp rolls increased by 33% (to 44.7 million – a record one in seven Americans). The number now receiving Social Security disability payments reached 11 million. (Costs increased from $56 billion in 2000 to $144 billion in 2013.) And total federal spending rose from an average of 21% of GDP under George W. Bush to an average of 24% under Obama.

At the same time, the National Debt grew by more than 70%; the number of working-age Americans with full-time jobs fell from 60.6 million to 58.7 million; the average duration of unemployment increased from 19.8 weeks to 36.6 weeks; median household income declined by $4,000; and 76% of Americans now live from paycheck to paycheck. The State giveth and the State taketh away.

Obama’s God is the God of dependency, the God of redistributionism, and the God who rewards sloth and punishes success. From Caracas to Havana to Pyongyang to Sacramento, it is the God that failed miserably.

ObamaCare won’t just increase health-care costs astronomically and lead to a serious shortage of doctors, but will literally give government the power of God over its citizens. Soon it will determine who qualifies for what treatments, what new technologies and medicines will be developed and which will be left to languish.

Then will come rationing and death panels by another name. That’s the real goal of Obamacare – not cost reduction, not health care for the uninsured, but the power of life and death. Obama’s is a God who demands blood sacrifices.

The creed of Obama-ism is distilled in the president 2011 Thanksgiving message: “As we gather in our communities and in our homes, around the table or near the hearth, we give thanks to each other and to God for the many kindnesses and comforts that grace our lives. Let us pause to recount the simple gifts that sustain us, and resolve to pay them forward in the year to come.” Pay them forward how – with more government programs, greater subsidies and higher taxes?

“Our communities” take precedence over our homes as the focus of our lives. We “give thanks to each other,” first and foremost, and to God almost as an afterthought.

In his 2012 you-didn’t-build-it tirade, Obama wasn’t just bashing the rich (urging Congress to raise taxes on those who earn over $250,000 annually) and telling businessmen that their success came from the collective, so he had a right to plunder them (droll coming from a man who never spent a day of his life in the productive sector), but denying the role of the God of the Bible in the affairs of men.

“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” the high priest of spread-the-wealth-around intoned.

“If you were successful, somebody along the way gave you some help.” (Not God but government.) “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in the roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Successful businessmen were mystified. Did “somebody” else risk every penny they had in a new venture? Did somebody else put in 70-hour weeks nurturing a new business like a newborn child? And, by the way, businessmen (the source of most federal revenue) built those roads and bridges with their tax dollars, and paid for the fraud and waste along with construction costs.

But Obama’s rant was as much theological as ideological. Where does God fit in Obama’s worldview? Christians and Jews understand that He plays a crucial part in our lives. If we’re successful, we should thank God.

No, says Obama. Thank your brothers and sisters (the collective) – and me, the voice of divinity on earth. Thank the government that built the roads and bridges and the Internet (with your tax dollars).

Marx called religion “the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” How different is this, really, from Obama’s 2008 bitter-clinger comment, when (thinking he was speaking off the record) he observed that when people in small towns fall on hard times, “they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them… as a way to explain (make sense of) their frustrations.”

Every totalitarian movement from the Jacobins to the Bolsheviks to the National Socialists saw religion as competition for the loyalty of the people and an obstacle to their agenda. That’s why they invested so heavily in anti-religion campaigns.

Obama is more subtle – telling us that God has little, if anything, to do with our lives, but any success we achieve we owe to the collective.

Politicians and bureaucrats only think they have God-like powers. God created sunsets, meadows strewn with wildflowers, snow-covered peaks and children’s laughter. Governments create wars that never end, depressions, recessions and downturns, the US Postal Service and ObamaCare.

God makes miracles. When they stray from their proper, limited, functions, governments make manure. Obama sells it by the steaming truckload.

A Portrait of Honor

Liberals are already planning a place of honor for their dictator president. Much debate is taking place by pundits from various news sources about why Obama belongs on Mount Rushmore. If you search just for a few nano-seconds you will even find superimposed photos of Obama carved into the mountain next to Lincoln.

I agree, for once with my liberal friends, that an image of Obama must there next to Lincoln, i.e. the one I show. It totally represents the man who does all he can to undo what Lincoln did. Instead of emancipating the blacks of America he further subjugated them to poverty, and into vote-slaves. In this regard he is better than Lincoln because he doesn’t limit vote-slavery to the blacks, he includes all of us. Lincoln died to keep the states united, Obama lives to divide the country.

In my design, I place Obama next to, and above Lincoln because that is where he believes he is. I depict Obama as I see him. This likeness is one of the best I have drawn since he took office, and it most accurately depicts his character. I just hope the model does not get wind of what I have done. I don’t want him attempting suicide.

Are “We the People” Going to Stand for That?

According to my dictionary the word slavery defines a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them. When America rebelled against England  in 1776, slavery was legal. Landowners owned slaves. The founders struggled with the concept of keeping slaves while they defined the concept of “all men are created equal.”  Thomas Jefferson originally had words which included slaves in the Declaration of Independence. The southern colonies would not join the union if the declaration included slaves as equals. A long debate ensued and ultimately, the fathers concluded that a strong union of the thirteen colonies was most essential.  Jefferson wrote the last version of the Declaration of Independence as it stands today. The founders were the first to kick the  problem(slavery) down the road; thus setting a precedent for current congressional leaders to do the same with issues like Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid.

One hundred years later, Abraham Lincoln, founder of the Republican party, finally decided to end the can kicking and abolished slavery. The cost he incurred was huge both in dollars, and in human lives. He believed as did Jefferson (who was reportedly the founder of the Democrat party) that the slaves  must be included in the “all men are created equal,” phrase of the Declaration. Lincoln took a hard stand and signed the Emancipation Proclamation, ending slavery in the USA. He chose to do the right thing and not to kick the can down the road.

I suggest that everyone review the Declaration of Independence. I did, and I if I didn’t know it was the Declaration, I would swear the writer described the same issues we face in our country today. The Declaration is a call to arms and gives the rationale for doing so. Today, citizens of the USA are  divided.  Half are on the side of the government (monarchy) while the other believes in the right to govern themselves. In 1774-76 the colonists made ready for armed revolution to take their country from the King of England. Today, we see a Tea Party who believes as the colonists, i.e. we have the right and moral obligation to govern ourselves. Instead of an armed revolution Tea Party people like myself believe in peaceful use of the existing process to win back the country.

Since Lincoln’s time, our leaders in Washington have invented new philosophies for governing. Some say, that it is the role of Government to take care of the people under the “Welfare” clause of the Constitution. There is a Jefferson quote carved in stone at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington that contradicts the philosophy that we are stupid, and need to be cared for;

“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Thomas Jefferson believed in man’s ability to think and care for himself. We do not  need another man to  Lord over us.

Thomas Jefferson foresaw that  if left unchecked, the government would rebel against the will of the people and revert to tyranny. He truly believed as did his compatriots, that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed . . . .”

Obama’s speech this week to the GWU students clearly signaled his intention to stifle any effort by the people to take back their government and reverse exorbitant and  costly social programs.

Are We the People going to stand for that, or  will we allow him to lead us down the road to big government dependency and ultimately become tax-slaves to feed the monster?

Goodbye Old Glory

Because our country is changing  rapidly, I believe a new national  flag is needed to represent  new values. Old Glory no longer stands for a Union of States held together by a Constitution. The New America is comprised of a highly polarized population more divided by race, and by a political ideology which promotes  the  destruction of a constitution tested by time.  The new ideology does not believe in liberty of the individual, but promotes government as the all benevolent care taker.  

I have designed a new flag which appropriately defines the change that is occurring. The thirteen stripes representing the  original colonies are retained.  Two different icons are used to represent the fifty states.  The symbols differentiate between those states that embraced “Change You Can Believe In,” and those that believe the USA is the greatest country in the world.  

 One of the issues  polarizing the population is a definition of liberty. There is the traditional concept of liberty which promotes the concept of freedom of the individual to own property, and to decide his own fate. The second concept of liberty belongs to those that believe the state should own the property and decide your fate.  Abraham Lincoln described this as Liberty and Tyranny.  

Currently, there are twenty-two states that define liberty as freedom to live free, own property, and take responsibility for your own actions. The remaining twenty-eight states believe in the tyrannical concept  of equal wealth through government programs, and take no responsibility for their actions. In the design for the “New Flag,” I retain use of a star to represent the states keeping traditional liberty. For the socialist  states I chose to use the hammer and sickle the traditional symbol of the communist movement.

The order of the symbols begins with  Delaware, the first state to join the union, in the upper left.  The symbols continue, left to right across the blue field in the order each state achieved statehood.

Good bye “Old Glory.”

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

I got to thinking about those trillions the government is throwing at earmark projects called stimulus. I asked myself how many people could a trillion dollars really help?  I looked at three items that people spend money on: house, car, and college education.

Here is how it works out:

1. How many $200,000.00  houses can one buy for a trillion? A two hundred thousand dollar house is probably affordable for most of the population.

ans: Five million

2. How many cars valued at $25,000.00 each? Not a Lexus or Cadillac, but a Ford Focus will get you to where you need to go.

ans: Forty million.

3. How many students could spend $40,000.00 on college tuition?  This one assumes you spend three hundred dollars per credit hour and you require one hundred and thirty credits to get a degree, and live with your parents.

ans: Twenty five  million five hundred thousand.

A trillion dollars given away in this fashion would most likely stimulate the economy. Instead we will direct the money through a filter called “government.”  The end result will be that only a third will get to the consumer. The remainder will be lost in management fees. In big government management fees are more commonly referred to as GRAFT.

What BHO failed to tell the people of the USA is that his redistribution of wealth will make everyone in the country a slave. By robbing the rich to give to the poor, the result will make everyone poor.

The direction of the country toward “Change You Can Believe In,” will bankrupt the treasury. The end result is that the greatest country in the history of the earth will become  a slave to the countries who buy our debt.

Barack likes to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. While Lincoln freed a small number of the population who were slaves, Barack will enslave the entire country. How will that happen?

We will borrow the money from China or other countries. In order for them to loan us the money, we will have to make it worth their while. We will have to pay higher interest. Higher interest will mean that the government has less money to pay for the programs that they have legislated into law. In other words if it takes a trillion dollars to run the country, we’ll now have to add the interest to that.  Where will the government get the extra money? They have two ways: 1. Pass the expense to the tax payer by increasing his contribution. 2. Print more money to cover the bill. This means that your money is worth less than it was before. I already have trouble making ends meet on my fixed income.

Here is what the interest payment looks like on a trillion dollars:

Interest rate-percent   interest payment
2   20,000,000,000.0
3   30,000,000,000.0
4   40,000,000,000.0
5   50,000,000,000.0
6   60,000,000,000.0
7   70,000,000,000.0
8   80,000,000,000.0
9   90,000,000,000.0
10   100,000,000,000.0

In case you have a problem reading all those zeros, they are billions.

Mark my words, this country is headed for another civil war with the rampant spending under this president. Isn’t civil war another issue that Lincoln had to deal with?
