The term "public service" suggests a selfless service to fellow citizens and future generations by donating one's time to make life better and allowing citizens to enjoy more productive lives. Everything Obama has done is a contradiction to that principle. Americans are less free, their lives are more costly, the tone of daily life is more strident, racial feelings are more raw, the political tone is harsher, the continuation of social security is now in doubt, Medicare as we know it will soon end, the most prosperous nation in history is on a steep decline, the greatest healthcare system in the world is grinding to a halt, our industries and factories are shutting down and moving overseas, the price of gasoline is equal to Europe's, joblessness is at an all-time high and would be higher if the government were not cooking the books, the number of welfare recipients is at an all-time high, Obama himself has stated that he wants electric rates to "necessarily sky-rocket", his administration has stated that they want gasoline prices to increase substantially, our debt to other, and often unfriendly, nations is so high that even apologists for Obama don't know how it will ever be paid without impoverishing us, the Obama administration is serving the ends of the United Nations which is trying to take our land and tax us for being a successful nation, and Obama is personally and figuratively turning his back on Israel at its hour of greatest need against Iran. And with the increasing cost of electricity and gasoline one must not forget that Obama has halted the private production of much-needed fuel in the Gulf, Alaska and importation of oil from Canada, while wasting billions of tax-payer dollars on still-developing alternative sources of energy that remain decades away from being a replacement for oil or coal. In short, Obama has intentionally caused prices to increase for all Americans for everything they use and buy, while making the supply of these essential products more at-risk and making their lives less convenient and more uncomfortable and costly. And let's not forget that Obama's National Labor Relations Board prohibited Boeing from manufacturing aircraft in Charleston, South Carloina at a time he was pretending to be staying awake nights, losing sleep, in an attempt to think of ways to create more jobs (but of course our valiant president didn't lose so much sleep that he couldn't play golf the next day). Who would ever have believed that a President of the United States would actively work to make life for Americans more expensive and less free, setting an atmosphere in which there are fewer jobs, as a direct result of his policies of halting production of the things our society cannot live without for one day?
With all of these problems, caused or made worse by him, why would Obama seek re-election and why would the people serving that end continue working for him when they can see the problems themselves and know that the futures of their children are at great risk? Only two answers are possible:
1) They are so caught up with the celebrity status and personal gains of this administration that they can't picture the nation months or years into the future and visualize the destruction they are doing,
2) They are intentionally destroying this great nation by ripping tradition, common sense and the Constitution to shreds.
Author Edward Banfield once wrote that criminals commit their crimes because they don't have the ability to understand the future outcomes of their criminal actions and can't visualize an eventual punishment. They just commit the crime and the punishment flows without them understanding what has happened or how they got involved with the law. Most likely they think they are victims and are resentful of the law enforcement officers who arrested them and placed them on trial.
This phenomenon of not being able to see a cause and effect relationship could explain why liberals cause so much damage to personal lives and to our nation: they just do stuff (such as endless welfare, nationalized healthcare, pandering to totalitarian threats as Neville Chamberlain pandered to Germany, and as Obama is pandering to Iran and North Korea) and then wonder how everything goes to hell after they've done their best to be, and play, nice.
The second option above would suggest that they really intend to undermine America's prosperity, security and comfort and want to increase the daily cost of living to a point where everyone has to depend on government to stay fed and sheltered.
My personal opinion is that both options are true: Obamaites really want to create a situation where government becomes central to everyone's lives, and they are unable to see that future generations will suffer greatly from the destruction of this wonderful nation, that they are causing.
In short, liberals (and Obama is the main liberal in our lives at the moment) are stupid as well as evil. They want immediate personal gain and popularity but are unable to see the suffering their current actions will cause our children and grandchildren. The destruction Obama has caused in three years will be magnified enormously if he is re-elected and has four more years to block progress and prosperity without worry of having to get elected another time and without having to pretend to care about the destruction to the lives of most Americans with his totalitarian rule of the nation via executive orders and radical administrative agencies like the E.P.A.
There was a movie a few years ago titled "Not Evil, Just Wrong" that exposed the lies and destruction that resulted from liberal claims of global warming, or climate change, or whatever these fools are calling it at present. But the excellent film got one thing wrong: liberals, and the Obama administration in particular, are evil as well as wrong, and they are bent on the destruction of the lives of every one of us.
If we don't tear down the governmental utopia that leftists have built over the last 60 or so years and get rid of the Departments of Energy and Education, and the E.P.A. in particular, and if we don't defeat Obama in November, we'll never be able to regain our Constitutional protections and our children will lead very crude, impoverished lives for decades, and possibly forever.
