Obama’s Leftist Policies Dangerous For This Nation

Saturday, April 10, 2010

On November 4th, 2008, I wrote “Why I Will Not Vote For Barack Obama“. At that time I explained that I could not vote in good conscience for such a left-wing radical. Now, I’m hoping that the rest of the country is awake to that reality and this year and again in November 2012, we will reverse this drastic change to our country.

I did not move to the United States and become a citizen to see our government take ownership of automobile companies, banks, college loans, our health care system and attempt to regulate every facet of our lives from what we eat to the energy we use. But that is exactly what President Obama and his Democrat party sycophants are doing.

Obama’s latest attempt at weakening this great nation was his announcement that we would no longer use our nuclear weapons as a deterrent. The previous policy was deliberately vague to keep our enemies unsure if we would launch a nuclear strike if provoked.

Under Obama’s  revised Nuclear Posture Review, the U.S. will not use or threaten to use nukes against any country that’s in conformity with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaties – no matter what they may do to us; wether it be a biological or cyber attack. However, “outlier” countries such as Iran and South Korea could get nuked. It is obvious that this new policy came from a group of Harvard eggheads and Barack Obama is the Harvard class president.

Charles Krauthammer, in the National Review calls Obama’s theory stunningly naive to believe that our moral example will move other countries to eschew nukes.

“Nuclear doctrine consists of thinking the unthinkable. It involves making threats and promising retaliation that is cruel and destructive beyond imagining. But it has its purpose: to prevent war in the first place. Under the old doctrine, supported by every president of both parties for decades, any aggressor ran the risk of a cataclysmic U.S. nuclear response that would leave the attacking nation a cinder and a memory.

The administration’s Nuclear Posture Review declares U.S. determination to “continue to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in deterring non-nuclear attacks.” The ultimate aim is to get to a blanket doctrine of no first use.

This is deeply worrying to the many small nations that for half a century relied on the extended U.S. nuclear umbrella to keep them from being attacked or overrun by far more powerful neighbors. When smaller allies see the United States determined to move inexorably away from that posture — and for them it’s not posture, but existential protection — what are they to think?

Fend for yourself. Get yourself your own WMDs. Go nuclear if you have to. Do you imagine they are not thinking that in the Persian Gulf?”

U.S. foreign policy called “Smart Power” by President Obama is actually “soft” power. Almost weekly, the White House has threatened to impose “crippling sanctions” against Iran for it’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thumbs his nose at world condemnation and mocks Obama, calling him “inexperienced and an amateur politician.” For once, Ahmadinejad is right.

With one hand President Obama holds a clenched fist towards our most trusted allies such as Great Britain, France and Israel, while extending a hand to fascist regimes in Venezuela, North Korea, Syria and Iran.

Obama’s most striking change in policy is toward Israel, the most democratic and responsible nation in the Middle-East. Uzi Amit-Kohn of Israel writes, “I did not foresee that Obama would team up with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to subject Israel to a “good cop-bad cop” routine, and with Iran in the role of the “good cop”, no less.

Barack Obama seems to me a person full of self-regard but totally lacking in self-awareness, so at the White House “Seder” that he hosted, he probably had no sense that those words – written in reference to such villains of Jewish history as Pharaoh, Amalek, Nebuchadnezzar, Titus and Hadrian and more recently associated by one and all with Adolph Hitler – were now being recited with a picture of Barack Obama in people’s minds. It took real skill for an American president, elected with 78% of the Jewish vote, to be recognized by millions of Jews as a potential destroyer of the Jewish People.”

We have elected the most left wing President and Congress in history. This administration is barreling along at full throttle to pass legislation that will impose punitive taxes on the energy industry in the name of “Cap and Trade”. A tax on energy production and consumption that has proved to be an economic disaster in Europe.

Moody’s Investors Service predicts U. S. electricity rates will rise up to 30% due to cap-and-trade alone, and “the vast majority” of that will be paid by ordinary citizens.

By contrast, large industrial emitters will pass along cost hikes to consumers, plus win favourable concessions from government bureaucrats, desperate to do the bidding of their political masters by getting the system up and running quickly, no matter how flawed. (The Observer)

The latest talking point is a Value Added Tax or VAT, another European social democratic policy. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is now studying the impact of adding an entirely new tax to the federal taxing scheme: the value added tax (VAT). The VAT is expected to be the favored new tax of Obama’s so-called Deficit Commission.

The head of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), Douglas Elmendorf, said, “U.S. fiscal policy is unsustainable, and unsustainable to an extent that it can’t be solved through minor changes”. “It’s a matter of arithmetic.”

Of course it is, how else can this nation afford all the new federal entitlements promised and passed by the Democrats? Higher and higher taxation that will transform the United States into a country resembling Spain, Portugal or Greece.

That means increased and permanent unemployment, reduced industrial productivity and an ever shrinking GDP to Europeanize America.

This is not the United States of America our founders fought for. This is not the U.S.A that our brave military fights and dies to defend. This is not the America I immigrated to and our forefathers risked all to imagine.

We must take back our nation from those that wish to steal our way of life and forever alter the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

    We’ve got the House, and 1/3 of the Senate to clean this year. That will muzzle this muzzy moonbat. THEN we get to purge him and the Reps we missed and another 1/3 of the Senate. We may suffer for the next few years, but we can start a recovery and be on the way up this fall.
