He should be a youth counselor but not President of the USA. He has a lot of mixed up incomplete ideas he wraps in platitudes. The man isn't qualified. Reminds me of how a pick up artist works: they bypass the logic centers of the brain and go straight for the limbic system.
Barack Hussain Obama offers no real solutions to government problems in this book and his dream is one of some Marxist derivative. Translation: Huge government and higher taxes. Block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city, state by state means transforming the USA in a typical neo-liberal authoritarian manner towards a failed model.
Once you wade through all the psychobabble, that's what the guy is all about imo. The New Left built the coffin and the Neo-Conservatives hammered in most of the nails but he'll finish the job for sure. Don't drink the kool-aid kids. Just say no or we sink in a sea debt and a lack of innovation.
you sound like that ann coulter chick my people talk about....
Not at all. I can't even get my head around Ann Coulter to be honest. She comes across as an arrogant entitled product of neo-conservatist feminism to me. You have me all wrong. I'm just making what I think is an accurate observation regarding Obama. To you he may be a messiah that's going to save America but to me he's just another politician selling his own personal brand of snakeoil that won't cure a thing in the long run. Printing money and taxing corporations will prop things up for awhile longer and maybe even allow him to play the messiah with sweeping freebie programs like national healthcare: but then the results of such economic foolishness will inevitably come home, as they must, resulting in the dismantling of the middle class and economic slavery for the masses.
You cannot create an economic situation based on multinational corporations exploiting Chinese labor (even the Mexicans now are feeling the pain as the multinational corporations move their operations from Mexico to China to utilize cheaper labor) to get the lowest labor cost humanly possible and then ship the products in containers thru Mexican ports and up a superhighway the US doesn't even own but simply leases to the highest bidder (foreign countries, multinational corporations, whomever) resulting in the lowest possible transportation cost and bypassing customs through a "trusted" RFID system resulting in security concerns and then dump them on the open market here enmasse resulting in the end of a material number of American businesses in the small to medium space without realizing some very very serious economic problems for the USA. Goodbye American manufacturing, Goodbye a material number of American businesses in the small and medium sized business space, goodbye jobs for American workers, goodbye innovation (that's a big hit right there), goodbye security, goodbye democratic worldview as supreme in the world as authoritarian governments reap the rewards of this paradigm, maybe even goodbye national sovereignty as globalists exploit what will be an ever worsening situation, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...
This is what's on the table and this is where it's headed. Simply taxing the multinational corporations that are flush right now to get everyone on the government dole isn't a solution for prosperity. It's just institutionalizing a growing class distinction that works very well for a few and very poorly for everyone else. If you want positive economic change, then we're going to have to change what we are doing as soon as possible and get back to what works.
I like reading The Paleo Conservatist as it discusses both the problem and the solution.
No friend, I don't have anything to do with Ann. Don't even like her. I just see through Obama's and all the rest of the candidates on display oratory this election. You'll get your check in the mail for a time but it will result in a devalued dollar and an ever worsening economic situation. Nobody wants to fix things. They just want a song and dance combined with a handout. And Obama delivers that.
