Wake up America!
When we, as Americans, have something that bothers us, we usually take the opportunity to get it off our chests. We have the freedom to exercise that right called "Free Speech" -- so far!
It scares me, and many other Americans, to observe and tolerate what is going on in Washington with the ideas and actions of our president and the members of the Senate and House of Representatives. How much longer are we going to sit around and let these people ruin our lives and the lives of future generations?
Since the election and inauguration, many people were ecstatic with the prospect of a new president and the many changes he was proposing. Now many of these same people are terribly concerned what is happening to the economy, the unemployment rate, the banking business, the auto industry, the tax proposals and the health care situation. Well, we elected him (them) and we have no one to blame but ourselves. It doesn't look like the president will listen to any of us, because he clearly has an agenda, that left uncorrected, will ruin this country. But our representatives in Washington are supposed to listen to their constituents, and we, as responsible citizens, taxpayers and voters, have a responsibility, duty and obligation to tell them how we feel.
This country became strong and flourished on the concept of capitalism, but, if left unchecked, the president will take all that away, along with many of our inalienable rights. Did we elect a president or have we acquired a dictator? He has appointed 30 or more czars, dealing with whatever seems right at the time. These czars are not accountable to Congress, but to President Obama only, with him setting their salary, which is not made public. Everything he has touched, including those mentioned in the third paragraph, have and will result in a dreadful outcome. It had become apparent during the campaign, and now even more so since the inauguration, that he clearly has a socialist mindset and a comparative agenda.
Many people elected to office, regardless of what it is, which includes the president and Washington officials, take on an attitude that they are not responsible to those who elected them. They become deceitful, carry out the duties of their office in the manner that suits them and become arrogant, egotistical and condescending. With that type of attitude and actions, it is unlikely that they will be reelected. Let's hope it starts with President Obama.
For centuries, scholars, historians and lay people have discussed and debated the subject of the anti-christ. Some said it was Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler and other world leaders and dictators. But I give you a new possibility -- Barack Hussein Obama!
Could he actually be the one? Everything fits, from his denying, or making up, his religious background, his refusal to prove his citizenship, his inevitable destruction of the most powerful capitalist country, his ultimate power grab over everything he touches, and all by design. Let's pray that this doesn't happen, and let our elected officials in Washington know how we feel before it is too late!
