Turn the clock back eight years and America looks and acts like a whole different country, turned on its head.
For whatever reasons -dare we say in this politically-correct climate? - only President Obama could get away with what he has done and is doing in what is becoming his obvious (to us) attempt to transform the US into a top-heavy, controlling, socialistic (if you will) government ala Venezuela and other third world countries. And the forecast isn't good.
1) While doubling our national debt to $20 trillion, Obama is the only president who has never seen 3% growth during a single year of an administration. Instead of helping the shrinking middle class, he is making the U.S. a third world country by bringing in thousands of mostly (97%) muslims (only 3% ) Christians. We bring this up only because these numbers are not representative and, in case you are one of those asleep, there is a war going on led by Muslim terrorists and it is coming closer to America with what, already 60,000 reported crimes by illegals.
2) Meanwhile, Obama is doing everything he can to move those new refugees -many ISIS supporters and illegals- including hardened criminals out of places like Syria and 'Gitmo' to a neighborhood near you including tony suburbs beginning in NewYork's Westchester district. It's his modern version of busing - something that never worked after years of trying, and was finally disbanded in most area.
3) In so doing, Obama has lowered American's household income - down $5,000 a year per family since he came into office - while helping out the new refugees, who are getting the same privelages, or more, than those of us long time citizens of America. So much for Obama's claim of improving the econmy, now nearing $20 trillion in debt. Obama has seen more debt than all the previous presidents combined. By making very questionable deals with our enemies, such as Iran, Obama is being seen as friendlier to our enemies than supporting countries.
Why is Obama doing all this? He may see it as altruistic -helping the poor and that, but by taking away people's incentives by giving free stuff ($21,000 for the average poor person in food stamps, welfare, etc.) he's taking from the rest of our taxes while diminishing the huge middle class much like a typical socialistic or communist country does. The jobs he has created have largely been fringe ones and part-time, due in part to Obamacare work limitations. Meanwhile, Obama gets the added benefit of votes - everything is political for Obama - with the new poor who normally vote Democrat. All the while, Obama shows no real interest in knocking out ISIS as he continues to bring in large numbers of refugees from those war-torn countries. Had Obama acted sooner and faster militarily, there would likely be no or little ISIS threat today.
