After watching President Obama’s State of the Union address last week I have come to realize that Obama and I must live in vastly different worlds. Mr. Obama lives in a world where deficits have been cut and unemployment is low and where people are entitled to other people’s stuff just because they were born. In Mr. Obama’s world more than nine million Americans are thrilled to have signed up for Obamacare, even though over 8 million of the nine million were already on a Medicaid system. In Mr. Obama’s world there are no radical Muslim extremist who want to destroy America (even if their YouTube videos proclaim they are). And in Mr. Obama’s world all those mean employers have more than enough money to increase salaries to all their abused employees without affecting the prices of their products or services.
ObamaWorld is a world of Blacks vs. Whites; Haves vs. Have Nots; 99 Percenters vs. 1 Percenters.
In ObamaWorld even if the top 1 percent of earners pay more in taxes than the bottom 90 percent, the top 1 percent still have not paid their fair share.
In ObamaWorld the only time the death of a young black child matters is if it is at the hands of a white man, but that death is virtually ignored if it is at the hand of another young black child.
In ObamaWorld all who disagree with Mr. Obama are racist, sexist, homophobic, angry, old white Republican men (even if their name is Susana Martinez, Mia Love, or Tim Scott).
And in ObamaWorld there is no Constitution and no system of checks and balances that a simple pen and phone cannot transcend.
In my world, however, 90 million Americans are not working, many because they have not been able to find work in years.
In my world nearly 50 million Americans are receiving food stamps to feed their families. The racial divide is at its greatest in over 40 years and the debt has exceeded 18 trillion dollars and continues to climb.
In my world 22 American veterans commit suicide every day — that is a suicide every 65 minutes.
In my world Americans are hurting and worried about their future and fearful that they are losing their freedoms.
In my world 400 hospitals have closed since the Obamacare law passed congress and Americans are paying more for healthcare insurance and their deductibles have drastically increased.
I live in a world where Americans don’t want the IRS to be in their healthcare business. I live in a world where we were raised on the axiom that there is “no free lunch” and ergo no free healthcare. I live in a world where Americans are still awaiting answers on Operation Fast and Furious; Benghazi; NSA; the IRS, and the VA Hospital scandals. I live in an America where the American people want a leader that doesn’t address the American people akin to addressing a 4th grade class but to address the American citizenry with the respect due of one who has hired them to protect and defend our Constitution and our way of life.
Can these two worlds exist in the same universe? That is the question that We the People must answer.
