Throughout history no matter which side of the aisle people are on, most Americans have always respected the Office of the President of the United States. I can’t help but notice that since you have taken office, “respect” seems to have left the White House.
You do not respect our great Nation and you have repeatedly trampled on our Constitution to the point that it has enraged many citizens.
Your arrogance really showed when you had the audacity to tell the American people that if they owned a business they were not responsible for building that business, somebody else was. You insinuated that the Government had more to do with the success of that business than the business owner was.
I would like to ask you, Mr. Obama, does this not also mean that the Government would then be responsible for all of the companies that have closed their doors due to the economy and your administrations bad policies?
Yes, many lives have been “changed” for sure but they have not been “changed” for the better.
You have diminished the visions of the hard working people in this country. Our country has always been the land of the free where the opportunity was provided to pursue our dreams freely and reap the rewards of our hard work—not based on entitlements.
The literal definition of “entitlement” is: “the guarantee of access of benefits based on established rights or by legislation.”
In a casual sense, the term ‘entitlement’ refers to a notion or belief that one or oneself is “deserving” of some particular reward or benefit.
So my question to you is, if an individual has not applied themselves due to a lack of participation or individual effort then how do they “deserve” any entitlements that may come their way?
I believe that through prayer, hard work and perseverance I will obtain the wisdom it takes to be a productive citizen who can accomplish anything relying on my faith and Gods word!
Yet thus far, your administration–orchestrated by your socialist views– has promoted the theory that the hard working people of America are “entitled” to higher taxes while Social Security and Medicare have been squandered by your lack of leadership, loss of jobs, life savings, homes and college tuitions.
We “deserve” better than what you have given us and it is time to give back what you have unrightfully taken from the people who have worked endless hours to build the dreams that we were promised from the birth of our Nation!
Socialism is a transition period from capitalism to communism; therefore it can be considered a low form of communism. This was never the dream of our forefathers!
Parents struggle to send their kids to college because of the “trickle” affect that your bad policies have caused in this economic meltdown. Yet, illegal immigrants are getting a free ride because of you.
Since you are okay with this I have a suggestion. Why don’t you go ahead and give up your two daughter’s college educations at a prestigious college in turn for letting an illegal immigrant take their place. How would you feel if you were not afforded the opportunity to send your own children to college yet illegal immigrants are being granted a free ride at colleges across America?
Tell the American citizens the truth for once! The word “politically correct” is a way of sugar coating the truth to the point where you can continuously lie to the American people and get away with it.
You have continually “changed” your positions to meet your political agendas and your consistent hypocrisy is a downright shame. An example of your hypocrisy is when you made your sudden turn in support of gay marriage.
I almost believed you when you claimed that your decision was due to your own daughter’s questions, but then I came back down to earth and realized that it was nothing more than a smoke screen to gain votes due to your lack of supporters in this election. Your timing is certainly impeccable if not perfected politics!
“Change” is what you promised the American people but “changing your mind” to promote your socialist agenda is the reality.
As a proud Christian I am tired of hearing—from your side of the aisle–how “intolerant” I am.
In my mind becoming “tolerant” is the reason a socialist like you has made it to the Office of the President of the United States!
I personally refuse to “tolerate” anything that goes against my religion or the Constitution of the United States. God’s laws and our constitution, based on Christian values, were written so that people were not only treated equally but had the freedom to pursue justice in the face of discrimination.
Never in the history of the United States has a sitting President tried to re-write or completely ignore the laws of or our constitution like you have.
I am alarmed by your constant abuse of power and use of Executive Orders to bypass Congress in order to promote your socialist agendas. God’s word teaches that Christians should not judge others for the time would come that we too shall be judged. God’s word also teaches me that I do not have to “tolerate” or “promote” bad behavior.
As a former police officer for the State of Texas I was trained to “follow and uphold” the laws of Texas—but was I taught to “tolerate or promote” bad behavior.
The constitution provides me the opportunity of free speech. God’s word teaches me to speak the truth boldly even if it means standing alone on pure faith.
I fear neither the persecution nor the misguided words like “intolerance”. Jesus was persecuted by many and if it means that I will be persecuted by Socialist Liberals who are intent on dividing this country, creating class warfare, taking from the hard working people to give to the ineffective people who continually live their lives full of excuses then so be it!
Our moral fibers are being tested like never before by your entire administration. From the beginning of time our lives have been given a moral standard upon which we were instructed to follow. That standard which was used to write the Constitution of the United States came straight from God’s words.
Your misguided statements, political rhetoric and disregard of the American people’s desires for this country have left me with only one decision. I have realized that if I can’t dig deep and stand up against your web of lies now, how will I be able to stand against the lies that will come to pass on the day that really matters?
President Obama, it is obvious that you have waged a war on religion. I will rest peacefully at night with the knowledge that my God and his people will win the final battle.
In closing, I just want to say that I believe you have greatly underestimated the American people. We have fought many wars and we survived the Great Depression. We were raised up from unmerciful acts inflicted by our enemies that you are now protecting and bowing down to!
But by the grace of God, we have come together are rising above our wounds. Americans know how to unite in the midst of despair and we will do what is right for our country—including using our God given freedom to vote you out of the office of the Presidency of the United States of America. We will prevail!
