Quite a lot has happened to us under the O-bumatron regime,and most of it has been bad for the country.
This chart reveals the the party-of-welfare's two year track record from January, 2009, to February 15, 2011. The price of gasoline is up nearly 70%; corn is up 78%; unemployment is up 24%; the number of food stamp recipients is up 35%; the dollar has lost 8.6% against the yen, and the national debt has increased by 32%. One significant increase was in the number of federal bureaucrats; there numbers swelled by over 100,000. Great work, geniuses.
Although this article was posted last year, it does reflect our national trends. O-buma and company have us hurtling down the road to third world status, and they are dithering and blithering, trying to protect their selfish interests at the expense of national sovereignty. "The United States by every measure is hanging on by a thread to its First World status. Saddled by debt, engaged in wars on multiple fronts with a rising police state at home, declining productivity, and wild currency fluctuations all threaten America's future."
- Unemployment is twice acceptable levels.
- The US is economically dependent on foreign countries.
- Schemes to decrease liberty are put into effect by unelected bureaucrats.
- Political corruption is rampant.
- Civilian police use military grade weapons and tactics
- Infrastructure is crumbling as almost all states near bankruptcy.
- The middle class is rapidly disappearing.
- Quantitative easing has decreased the dollar's value tremendously.
- Most media sources are controlled by government.
- Plans exist to force private investment it Treasury bonds.
Sadly, "a full-blown military presence in American cities has been planned by the US Army War College."
Despite all of the bad news, bankruptcy is the greatest threat to the US. Concerning China's Dagong Global Credit Rating Company's decision to lower the US rating from AAA to AA, this Bloomberg article hypothesizes that an "alien arriving from outer space might take one look at America's balance sheet and buy Indonesian debt instead."
O-buma and the theftocrats have turned their backs on the nation and have robbed taxpayers in order to reward their loyal lackeys. This opinion piece argues that the empty suits who have mismanaged the economy have put government ahead of the people. One of the main reasons that the "$800 billion stimulus failed is that so little of it was directed to firing up the locomotive of the economy, the private sector, and so much of it was spent to ensure that government workers did not have to share in the national sacrifice."
Anyone "who thinks that the Obama party is ever going to cull the tens of millions of government workers or scores of millions of government beneficiaries to put America's house in order is deluding himself." O-buma had Nancy Pelosi reconvene Congress so that the federal government could borrow an additional $26 billion from China in order to keep redundant bureaucrats on the government payroll. This is what has happened under O-buma. The results of the 2010 election should be repeated in 2012.
It seems that there are mostly two types of people in this world: there are people who make mistakes and those who will not admit making mistakes. For anyone who made the grievous error of voting for O-buma in 2008 and is still advertising it, here is a useful product.
May your gods be with you.
