"In these difficult times, government isn't the solution to the problem. Government IS the problem." Ronald Reagan
Obama could take a few lessons from Reagan.
He likes to quote Reagan and he likes to try and compare himself to the Great Communicator. But let me tell you, Barak. You're no Ronald Reagan.
Reagan viewed America as the last great hope on earth. A land where we work hard and prosper.
Obama views America as the last opportunity to secure for himself a nice retirement. A land where those who work hard will be taxed and everyone else can freely obtain welfare. Soup kitchens are operating at maximum capacity. 401K's are being drained.
Reagan felt a strong military is the single best way to achieve peace.
Obama sees the military as only good to provide himself a golf course on the weekends. They're the ones that operate Air Force One and that's all he cares about. He sees their paychecks as bargaining chips and uses threatens to take them away if he doesn't get his way.
Reagan challenged Communism and Socialism. He never blinked when staring Gorbachev in the eye.
Obama embraces socialism. He is incrementally bringing it into America using Keynesian economics. His massive growths on the welfare and foodstamp rolls is pushing us evermore closer to the brink of socialism. He has already been endorsed by Communist Party USA. He embraces Red China, even celebrating the Chinese Communist Revolution and flying the Communist flag over the White House.
Reagan worked to shrink government, recognizing that the smaller the government, the larger the freedoms. He recognized that Government and Personal Freedoms do not co-exist.
Obama has reduced personal freedoms so much that there are many former Eastern European Soviet-bloc nations now considered more free than the United States. His overreaching health care overhaul is one of the single biggest killers of freedom and we haven't even seen the tip of the iceberg yet.
Reagan was proud to have passed on a legacy to our children of a nation built on freedom.
Obama is passing on to our children and grandchildren a debt burden so high that no one can see the end of the burden. Our nation is being propped up by Communist China. Obama refuses to really tackle China's artificially lower monetary value policy. Obama doesn't even understand what this means on the global scene and how it affects trade.
If he had spent a little less time as editor of Harvard Law Review and a little more time in Micro- and Macro-economics, he might understand things better.
