Despite the fact I have complained about the dialectic materialism crowd managing the news, using 2016 Presidential election to divert attention away from business at hand in Congress, I jump in early to voice my opinion about the candidates and possible candidates running for President.
And I wish to make a point, mostly what I say and write about is just my opinion. I do not personally know any of the candidates. Admittedly my ideas about politics may be somewhat different from yours, the reader.
Right off the bat, I definitely believe this country is in dire need of a strong leader, one who values freedom, and believes in adherence to the oath they take to uphold the Constitution.
President Obama was voted in twice, with no business experience, no military experience, never operated State affairs as governor, just a Community organizer and short term Senator. I think anyone considering for whom to vote, should require experience as a State executor or very successful businessman, or both.
For example, there’s Scott Walker, whose record as Governor of Wisconsin is impressive and makes no bones about saying the money belongs to the people and not the government. Comes across as a man with a lot of integrity, and re-elected as Governor of Wisconsin, despite heavy duty opposition from such powerful conglomerates as the Teachers Union and the Progressives in political power.
Now Donald Trump is talking about running for President. He would make a good one. He’s smart, successful, loves this country and the principles it stands for, has a record as a very successful businessman. And being President means having one qualified to operate the business of this great nation. Donald Trump is a man who stands up for excellence in whatever his endeavor. If this country ever needed someone to return this nation to excellence, it is now.
Let’s get honest and be specific, we don’t need another Clinton nor a Bush, we’ve had those before. Despite the fact they are amiable and likable, so is President Obama. We need a President with executive ability, leadership qualities and the guts to carry out the prescribed duties of the Presidency of the United States of America as prescribed by the laws.
I don’t know what President Obama plans on doing, but don’t think he plans on walking away from a position of power. He may try for another term, or expect to head up the United Nations. As Dr. Phil says, past conduct is the best indicator of future behavior.
And remember he told us in the first campaign he wanted to transform America, along side saying he would change business as usual in Washington. Most believed he meant he would clean up political maneuvering in Washington, and no one asked him what he meant by transformation. He has definitely not changed Washington, instead changed this nation from a land of the free to a system of socialism. A system that is the antithesis of the founding father principles. And that’s not my opinion, but the reality of conditions as they exist.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the first real dyed in the wool socialist President. I read an article recently which claimed Obama patterned his rule after Roosevelt. And he managed to remain president for life. But I reiterate, I don’t know what President Obama is going to do next.
What I do know in the past mid-term election, was a cry from the people for Congress to change the direction we’re going, and from news reports, the current Congress supports more of the Obama agenda than they object to.
I lived in the FDR era and I do know what he did. Summed up in the story about him, which goes like this, “Over five thousand years ago Moses said to the children of Israel, pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels and I will take you to the promised land.” Over 75 years ago when welfare was introduced, Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, light up a Camel, this is the promised land. Lean on your shovel, taxed all your property, raised price of camels, kicked ass and said you’re in the promised land.”
I remember so vividly the day Roosevelt died. I was on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia, and as I stepped onto a streetcar I heard the man behind me say, “President Roosevelt just died.” But all the welfare programs he initiated lived on.
I can only hope the people of this nation stop and think about the decisions and actions in the history of prior presidents, the havoc and destruction to the capitalistic, free enterprising system which this nation thrived upon, in earlier years, which made us the envy of the world and everyone wanted to come here.
Why? Because the original system of government provided the greatest good for the greatest number known to civilization among a free people. If we are to survive, we must give careful consideration to the election of the next leader of this country. And not be misled by all the political hype one will be saturated with in the coming months. Judge your future decisions by being well informed of our recent past. And be reminded of what Dr. Phil says, “You can’t change that which you refuse to acknowledge.”
And absolutely necessary we recognize that which has already happened to this country, with a determination by every individual, we the people must change to return to that which we once had and held so dear, to pass on to the next generation. It is the moral imperative. Stop expecting politicians to do that which is our responsibility to undertake. It is those elected who have led this nation down the bridle path of bondage of socialism, as revealed in our recent past history. Freedom is a God-given right and the legacy of it handed to us by our founding fathers. None of us are entitled to sit back and do nothing to reclaim. No, we are not living in the promised land, instead living under a different system than the original this nation was founded upon.
