On January 20, 2009, America began its trek down a new path that would bring “overwhelming change” to the most powerful and most prosperous nation in the world.
In fact, President Obama outlined his opinions of America’s future in his inaugural speech. Based on the following quotes made by President Obama, he gave Americans a preview on how he would change America for the better:
1. We, the people, have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears and true to our founding documents.
2. We gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.
3. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted, for those that prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things…who have carried us up the long rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.
4. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth.
5. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works.
6. And those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.
7. We will not apologize for our way of life.
8. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers.
9. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West: Know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
10. For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies.
However, based on these quotes, has President Obama been true to the words he stated in his inaugural speech? Has he made a concerted effort to fulfill all that he promised to do for the American people? Has he ultimately tricked and duped all the American electorate who voted for him?
Now, let’s analyze each quote that America’s purpose-driven President made in his first inaugural address:
Quote 1: President Obama has not remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears and true to our founding documents. He is determined, based on the signing of many unconstitutional bills into law, to undermine the ideals of freedom and the rule of law that America’s founding fathers worked so diligently to include in the U.S. Constitution, the “supreme law of the land.” He, along with his cohorts in the House of Representatives and the Senate, are attempting to destroy the U.S. Constitution rather than to defend it, which is what the oath of office requires. Evidently, the oath taken on the Holy Bible, that is if they took the oath on it, means nothing to them. Instead, they are attempting to violate the U.S. Constitution in their efforts to control every aspect of the lives of Americans and, at the same time, turn America into a socialistic, nanny state and use an egalitarian approach to alleviate poverty and income inequality in the United States.
Quote 2: President Obama has not chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. In fact, he has done everything within his power as the Chief Executive to create fear and discord in the United States. He has constantly attacked any individual American or any group of Americans that does not accept his socialistic game plan for the United States. He has verbally attacked the Tea Party Movement, even though its rallies are peaceful, but he has verbally supported the anti-Arizona illegal immigration movement, even though the protests have been violent in nature. It is as if he is purposely driving a wedge between the American people for his own political gain and for the gain of the Democratic Party at a time when they are losing support in America for their debt-ridden socialistic agenda. Of course, if fear and discontent eventually caused rioting in the streets, President Obama could call “out the troops” to suppress those who support America’s freedom-loving, Christian, capitalistic nation.
Quote 3: President Obama has not supported the risk-takers, the doers, or the makers of things who are the backbone of America’s prosperous economy and democratic nation. In fact, he is attempting to destroy the entrepreneurial initiatives of America’s small business owners, which provide most of the jobs for America’s labor force. If the Healthcare Reform Law is not repealed, small business owners would be mandated to provide health insurance for all their employees, which could possibly cause massive layoffs again at a time when the unemployment rate is still almost ten percent. But, seemingly, every effort is being made by the current administration to make the American worker subservient to the federal government by eliminating jobs in the private sector. Unfortunately, banks are not as free to lend money to small businesses as they did in the past, which is a result of the “credit crunch” and government regulations on the banks. Also, with the government attempting to lower credit card fees and interest rates, the banks will be less likely to lend money to small businesses for expansion and hiring more employees.
Quote 4: President Obama has not been responsible in his actions toward keeping America’s economy prosperous and its military the most powerful on the Earth. In fact, he apparently has been brainwashed in thinking that his “manifest destiny” is to turn America into a Third World nation. He has signed stimulus (bailout) bills into law that have taken more money out of the U.S. Treasury than the previous 43 U.S. Presidents. But, he and his congressional cronies have more spending on their agenda, which requires the United States to borrow more and more money from countries that are actually its enemies. Also, the new Healthcare Reform Law is going to cost $115 billion more dollars than expected. As a result, America is on the verge of losing its good credit rating for borrowing money. If it does, it will have to pay higher interest rates, which means most of the revenue produced in America for one year (Gross Domestic Product) will be spent to pay interest on the trillions of dollars of American debt. There will not be much money left in the budget to provide for public services, education, public safety, and, last but not least, defense.
Speaking of defense, the United States military, which is the most powerful on the Earth, is on the verge of losing its dominance, too. Regardless of the effect of America’s debt on funding its defense program, there are other more serious reasons why the U.S. military could lose its number one rating in the world. First, President Obama wants America’s elite fighting men and women to restrain from killing as many of the enemy. In doing so, he would give them an award. Second, President Obama wants to permit gays and lesbian to serve openly, which would utterly destroy the morale of the military and also decrease the number of men and woman who enlist, since most of those who enlist are from conservative families. Third, President Obama wants to decrease military pay for those who are risking their lives to defend America and give it to other nonmilitary people, some who might not even be citizens.
Quote 5: President Obama has not been able to get the federal government to work efficiently, just like many other Presidents of the United States. However, he has been able to grow the size of the federal government larger than ever before with the enactment of many socialistic, Democratically-sponsored bills into law. Also, three out of four new jobs in America are in the public sector. In fact, many of these jobs pay much more than the same jobs in the private sector. For example, many of the new government jobs pay six-figure salaries. Ultimately, if the new Healthcare Reform Law is not repealed, over one hundred fifty new agencies will be established to execute this new governmental monstrosity. Therefore, a new squeeze will be put on the already strapped American taxpayer to pay the salaries for these new government workers, which includes 16,000 new IRS agents that will be hired to monitor and ensure that all Americans obtain health insurance. For sure, the federal government has faithfully taken on the role of Big Brother in the United States. What would George Orwell think about America 2010-style?
Quote 6: President Obama has not managed the public’s debt wisely, and definitely he has not done government business in the light of the day, which is probably one of his most egregious failures. As a result, most Americans do not trust President Obama and anyone else associated with the federal government. Of course, everyone in America also knows about the lack of transparency, especially the backroom deals, used to pass the partisan healthcare bill that will break the back of the United States economically, according to the Congressional Budget Office. But, President Obama and the Democratically-controlled House of Representatives and Senate are still planning to spend billions, if not trillions, of dollars on new government programs, unless Republicans reclaim control of both houses of Congress in November general elections. However, if the Republicans or Independents do not regain control of both houses of Congress, the glory days of the United States of America would most likely be over for many years to come. Therefore, President Obama’s vision for a new Great Society would actually destroy the American Dream as a result of his purpose-driven passion to redistribute wealth in the United States and around the world by government entitlement programs.
Quote 7: President Obama has not kept his inaugural promise that stated that America would not apologize for its way of life. Unfortunately, every time he makes presidential visits outside the borders of the United States President Obama or a representative of his administration apologizes for America’s way of life. The most recent example occurred in Communist China. Since the United States is attempting to get China to improve the human rights of its citizens, Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner apologized for the situation that is happening in Arizona as a result of its new Anti-Illegal Immigration Reform Law. Evidently, Mr. Posner believed that the events happening in Arizona would hinder his efforts in China unless he publicly apologized. However, why should the United States apologize to any communist nation? Also, why should the President of the most powerful nation in the world constantly bow down to leaders of other foreign nations? Such an act could make the President of the United States look weak in eyes of these leaders and their counterparts around the world. But, President Obama spends much of his presidential visits overseas bowing and apologizing to world leaders for the terrible way of life promoted by the American people. Ultimately, this should be considered an act of blasphemy toward all freedom-loving Americans.
Quote 8: President Obama has not supported Christianity in America. In fact, he has stated more than once that America is not a Christian nation, which is an odd statement for someone to make who claims to be a Christian and since Christianity is the religion of record of ninety percent of Americans. However, he has bent over backwards to support and promote Islam, the religion he was raised up in as a child, in America and around the world. He has constantly called it a religion of peace when “death and terror” are the central themes of the faction of Islam that is killing thousands of people throughout the world, including those of their faith who do not believe as they do. But, he never says much about Jesus Christ who is the only true “Peacemaker,” “the Redeemer of Mankind, and the “Son of the Lord God Jehovah.” As a result, who does President Obama truly worship as the centerpiece of his religious faith?
Of course, President Obama, as a professed Christian, should not be promoting other religions, since the Bible clearly states that there is one and only true and living God. Ultimately, in God the Father’s eyes, it would be idolatrous, blasphemous and an abomination to His Holy Name to promote other religions. As stated in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” That is as straightforward as it can get. However, Christians would naturally love people of other religions, including atheists. But, despite all the religions that exist in America and despite all the gainsayers and non-believers, Christianity is still the dominant religion on which America was founded and it’s still the religion that President Obama should promote as the “religion of peace.”
Quote 9: President Obama has not stayed true to his tenets pertaining to how he believes leaders should obtain power to rule their citizens. He said that leaders “who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history.” However, he is doing the exact opposite of what he said he believed. His administration is full of corruption and deceit. Also, it is obvious through his actions that he would be extremely happy if he could silence all dissent, especially the Tea Party Movement and Fox News. In fact, one of his Hollywood supporters, Woody Allen, suggested that President Obama should run the United States like a dictator for awhile. Evidently, it is time for Americans to “wake up and smell the roses” while they can. If the friends of President Obama have their way and the corruption and deceit in American politics continues, America will not only move to the “left” from capitalism to socialism, it could possibly move farther “left” to communism.
Quote 10: President Obama has not allowed the faith and determination of the American people to make America a better place to live, to work, and to raise a family. Instead, he has decided that God has ordained the federal government to be His representative on the Earth and to carry out His divine will for Americans and billions of people around the world. As a result, supernatural miracles from God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are no longer needed. If a person needs something, he or she should contact their federal government representative and submit the necessary paperwork to get a government handout, a government stimulus package, a government “blessing,” and or a government job, since 3 out of 4 new jobs are in the public sector and paid for with taxpayers’ money. However, if President Obama would get the government out of the lives of Americans and would negate many of the government regulations on small businesses, the standard of living in the United States would improve drastically because the unemployment rate would finally decrease. Of course, even with the government following these suggestions, the ultimate hope for America is faith in an almighty God who wants His rebellious children to return back to Him and to follow the dictates of His Holy Word. Therefore, as a direct result of Americans returning to God, He would once again pour out His blessings on the United States of America.
In conclusion, why is President Obama purpose-driven to change America in such a drastic manner? Is he determined to replace America’s Christian historical roots with his roots of socialism and his roots of Islam? Is he determined to bring America to its knees because of the supposedly unfair justice that the United States has directed toward Islamic nations? Is he determined to redistribute America’s wealth to the point of destroying the Protestant Work Ethic and replacing it with government handouts? Is he determined to weaken America’s military force in order to ensure that America’s troops don’t get involved with another war? Is he determined to force American citizens to support his agenda that will destroy the economy of the United States? Finally, is he determined to make America another Third World country and destroy the lifestyle and standard of living that is an integral part of the American Dream?
P.S. President Obama seemingly has a lot of energy, which is necessary for performing the tasks of America’s Chief Executor. However, much of his energy is being used for a purpose-driven, misguided, socialistic agenda that is crushing the will of Americans individually and America collectively as a nation. As a result, President Obama has swayed from the promises made in his inaugural address that promised a “positive” change in the United States. But, in reality, his change is taking the United States down a path or journey that could ultimately make Americans subservient to a one-party Democratic regime controlled by corrupt politicians who are determined to turn America into a government-dependent “nanny” state. Therefore, the only true solution to the socialistic mess that the United States finds itself in at present is the return of America as a nation to the God of the Founding Fathers.
