THE OBAMA LEGACY

DOMESTIC POLICY:

  • The Socialization of America is being accomplished at record speed.  Nearly HALF of the country is on some sort of government assistance.  
  • The Death of American employment:  When Obama was sworn in in January, 2009 - there were 80.4 million Americans 'not in the labor force' for various and sundry reasons.  At the end of 2013, after 5 years of Obama's policies, 91.8 million Americans were no longer in the labor force - an increase of over 10%.  Additionally, in the first quarter of 2014, the economy grew at the pathetic rate of 0.1%  .... that makes the job growth under Jimmy Carter look like a booming economy.
  • The destruction of the best medical delivery system in the world:  'If you like your doctor....' The ACA was sold as an act that would insure the 15% of Americans who had no medical insurance.  Instead, more people have LOST their insurance coverage than have GAINED coverage.  And that is the good news.... the bad news is you cannot always keep your doctor; you may not be able to use the hospital or clinic you want to... and for all of this, you will pay far more than you did a year ago.  When the employer mandate kicks in (conveniently delayed for political reasons until after the 2014 elections), far, far more people are going to be impacted as small business owners dump their employees onto the government exchanges.  If you are fortunate enough to be employed and have insurance coverage, AND EVEN IF YOUR EMPLOYER INCREASES YOUR SALARY BY THE AMOUNT HE HAD BEEN PAYING FOR YOUR GROUP INSURANCE PREMIUMS, you will NOT be able to purchase a comparable policy for yourself and your family.  That's just one of the ugly secrets of Obamacare.

FOREIGN POLICY: 
  • Leading from behind:  Possibly the most absurd foreign policy ever conceived in the history of the world.  We have emboldened our enemies to the point that they think nothing of attacking our embassies and outposts around the world.  And our allies no longer think they can count on us.  Barack Obama is seen as weak and equivocal.  He is incapable of making tough decisions.  He has surrounded himself with people (i.e. advisors) who have no real world experience dealing with foreign enemies - much less the threats we face in the 21st century.  They are clueless.... but they are not the sole reason our foreign policy is a disaster world-wide.  The main reason for that is..... Barack Hussein Obama is a coward.

  2. We have another 20 years to go yet. Because one the United States go the whole human race will be going.
    Then the dark ages of around 2 million years will set in. Then who knows what will be left to rebuild with?
    Pray for the meteors to come.
