America – A Once Proud Nation Set Adrift

by Richard H. Frank

How much incompetence will the citizens of this once great nation suffer at the hands of the Congress and the Obama Administration before we take action “to alter or abolish” this government as enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.

During the 2010 mid-term elections the electorate sent a loud and clear message to our government that fiscal responsibility and smaller Federal government were the agenda of the voting citizens.  The course set by the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress was firmly rejected by “we the people” and a major shift in the balance of power in all legislatures, state and federal, occurred all across this nation.

The mandate to reduce the size of the Federal government and return to responsible fiscal policy have been totally ignored by Barack Obama and the Democrats in the 112th Congress.

Every attempt to cut spending and reduce deficits both at the state and federal levels is violently opposed by Democrats that fight for their special interest groups including unions and government employees being asked to participate in actions to achieve balanced budgets.

The Congress is so afraid of the leftist media and maintaining their elected office that they will not risk forcing a budget for FY2011 and continue to vote for continuing resolutions containing token spending reductions.

Then, there is our neophyte President, Barack Obama, the Master of Insulation, that purposely remains disconnected from finding resolution to domestic and international problems.  he steadfastly proclaims that we are a nation of laws and blatantly ignores those laws to suit his purposes.

He and his Administration have invented a new vocabulary to sell his socialist, progressive ideology to Americans, particularly the youth.

  • “Fundamentally Change America” equals european-style democracy and redistribution of wealth.
  • The “War on Terror” equates to man-made disasters and international contingency operations.
  • “Investing” equals more big spending
  • “An Act of War” is now a kinetic action.

The liberal media in America compares Barack Obama, as Commander-in-Chief” to those great leaders in  history including Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harry Truman, John Kennedy and the most absurd comparison to Thomas Jefferson and Lincoln.  Those writers prone to make such comparisons obviously have no personal knowledge of these leaders, aside from that written from the viewpoint of liberal, progressive historians.  Barack Obama, as President, is not fit to fill the shoes of any of this American icons.

The Obama Doctrine seems to be that as a nation we must separate our social interests from or strategic national interests.  Former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, correctly states that these interests are inextricably intertwined and cannot be separated from each other without creating a serious risk to one or both.  As a result the mixed messages coming from the White House, Pentagon and State Department create confusion and ultimately show the lack of planning and leadership on the part of Barack Obama as Commander-in-Chief.

America is seen internationally as the Titanic without a rudder.  Notwithstanding all the power we possess, like a ship unable to steer a course, we plunge forward and backward wasting our precious lives and treasure until we will be  hopeless adrift as a Third World power submitting to the tides of the United Nations or a One World Government.

The 2012 national election is the time for us to return to Government under the values and principles enumerated in our Constitution.  Any candidate, President down to the local dog catcher, that does not support, protect and defend those values and principles, is not fit to hold public office.  The destiny of this once great nation rests with each and every American as they cast their vote in the coming 2012 elections.  I pray that we have learned the lessons of Obama’s “Hope and Change” over the past 2 years and the disastrous course upon which it has placed our nation.
