Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Beyond Imagining: Our Own Government Seeks Our Demise

Three years ago who would have imagined that our own government would actively seek to end our prosperity and limit our liberties? But that is exactly what the Obama administration is doing with its blocking of Boeing from manufacturing in South Carolina; its prohibition of drilling for oil off-shore; its latest multi-page set of regulations from the EPA that will cause electric generating companies to shut down coal-fired plants, increase electric fees hundreds of dollars a year and lay off hundreds of employees; by its quantitative easing which leads directly to inflation which we already see with the increased cost of food and gasoline; with the Democrat refusal to get serious about cutting government spending and abide by the constitution; by drowning businesses with damaging regulations; by suing Arizona for trying to control illegal immigration in their state; with Obama's getting us wrapped up in two additional wars on top of the two we were already fighting; with public education being destroyed by the Department of Education and its politically correct, teacher-union friendly time wasting courses ; with the FDA creating drug regulations that are causing shortages of critically needed drugs, a situation made worse with Obamacare; with the Obama administration's insistence that KSM and other terrorists be tried in civilian courts; with the Obama Justice Department's allowing voter fraud cases to go unprosecuted; by forcing our food (corn) to be used for fuel, thereby hurting poor families already strapped with high food prices.

The United States is being destroyed from within, which is something an external enemy could ever do, and our pal Barry is riding this nation to third-world status as quickly as he can. We need politicians who are not interested in political careers, but are instead interested in halting the damage being done to our nation and restoring our national pride, our liberties and our prosperity. But too many of the current batch of politicians only want to rule us and enjoy a responsibility-free career at public expense.

As a community organizer our president made a career out of demanding goodies from government, and now that he is the nation's chief executive he has the ability to hand out these goodies with virtually no limits. He has no idea how the wealth of our nation was created, and he has no concept that our wealth is finite, and if we chase off the wealth builders we may not be able to recreate our prosperous life-style, given the punitive regulations and high taxes that he has proposed and imposed, and which have driven away the builders of wealth, our entrepreneurs.
