In a country that has so many financial problems (and no budget passed in three years under Obama), issues with massive wasteful spending (GSA parties and Secret Service agents spending our taxpayer money on private functions with prostitutes), out-of-control and inept federal security of our country (fast and furious gun giveaway), the appearance of illegal political fundraising (Solyndra bankruptcy and money from taxpayers ending up in Obama fundraisers hands for his reelection) you would wonder why there is not open revolt on the steps of Congress and the White House? How does he get away with this?
Our country is desperate for leadership; because what we have is a President who spends all of his time at fundraisers and creating a voter base with promises of more free cash and benefits that we are unable to afford. He has a long laundry list of broken promises already!
Lou Pritchett says it best about our desperate state of affairs during his recent speech….
“In April 2009, I sent President Obama and the New York Times a letter titled “You Scare Me” because, as a candidate, he promised to “fundamentally transform America.” Now, after observing his performance for over three years, he no longer scares me— he terrifies me for the following reasons:
FIRST He has done more to damage America’s standing in the world, to lower the standard of living in America, to impoverish future generations and to shake our faith in the country’s future than any other American president in history.
SECOND– With a compliant Democrat congress, a lapdog media and a weak, almost nonexistent Republican opposition, he has shattered the American dream of job security, home ownership and rugged individualism for millions of Americans and has poisoned and divided our civil society with his politics of envy, class warfare, race warfare, and religious warfare which he is using as fundamental building blocks for his ‘socialist’ agenda.
THIRD culturally, he remains totally out of touch traditional American values. This has absolutely nothing to do with race or where he was born, rather it has everything to do with where, how and with whom he was raised, schooled, educated, trained and associates with still today.
FOURTH– he has surrounded himself with naive academicians, lawyers, politicians, bureaucrats and socialist leaning czars who arrogantly think and behave exactly as he does. People who offer no balanced suggestions or devil’s advocate positions and think in lock step with him that big government is the answer to all our problems.
FIFTH– he not only encourages but aids and abets the unionization of all American industry, the albatross around the neck of the free market. In turn, they provide the money and muscle to intimidate his opponents.
SIXTH– he has increased the national debt by over 30% in just three years. If re-elected and this rate of increase continues, America will be burdened with an unsustainable 20 trillion dollar debt which will result in the Country’s financial death. Recovery will be impossible———America will be the Greece of 2016.
SEVENTH– given his fanatical beholding to the ‘environmental’ and ‘man-caused global warming’ fringe, he has deliberately discouraged U.S. fossil fuel exploration and production while wasting millions of tax payer dollars on solar, wind and algae experiments. He refuses to accept that oil, gas and coal are not America’s enemies, they are America’s assets, which, properly managed, could make us energy independent within a generation.
EIGHTH– He views the U.S. as a power in retreat which abused its World dominance. Therefore he systematically apologizes round the world. Last March he whispered to Russian President Medvedev “–this is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility”. Just what is the secret that Obama and Putin are concealing from the American people until after the election? With what other leaders has he made similar secret agreements?
NINTH—and finally, after all his mis-steps, bad decision making, poor management, and zero leadership, the fact that he has the audacity to seek re-election should terrify every American.
I predict that if re-elected, future historians and political interpreters will look back at the eight year period 2008-2016, and conclude “the 44th President of the U.S. allowed the takers to overpower the payers which resulted in the greatest economy in history vanishing from the face of the Earth”.
Farewell America, the World will really miss you!”
Lou Pritchett April 15, 2012
It is my hope and prayer that this letter will also go viral and serve as a ‘wake up’ call to Americans of all political leaning, convincing them that never before in U.S. history has so much depended on Americans understanding that we are facing one of the greatest crises in U.S. history. Convincing them that this election will be won not by letters to the editor, political speeches or radio and TV sound bites.
No! it will be won by those with a conviction, with a belief and with a willingness to pay the price in helping put the most enlightened voters in the polling booth on November 6.
Let me end on my favorite quote which I think is very appropriate for each of us today—
“TO EVERY MAN
There comes in his lifetime that special moment when he is physically tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to him and fitted to his talent; what a tragedy if that moment finds him unprepared or unqualified for the work which would be his finest hour.”
Those words spoken by Winston Churchill over 70 years ago are very appropriate today.
For if each of us is prepared and is qualified then November 6, 2012, just might be our and our Country’s finest hour as we reclaim this “shining city on the hill” from the ravages of Obama Socialism.
IT IS NOW OR NEVER FELLOW PATRIOTS– I would add “God help us not to Fail” !
