Thank you, Barack Obama! (No, Really!)

Screen Shot 2014-05-11 at 9.59.37 AMRecently I had an epiphany about how wrong it is that many of us have been badmouthing Barack Obama, blaming him for everything that’s gone wrong with the United States since he was elected into public office.  Instead of blaming him for all the damage he’s created, we should be thanking him.  Think of what you did BO (Before Obama) with all of your spare time.  We mainly went about our business working and raising our families.  Most of us weren’t involved in politics at all—we simply voted for whomever represented our party affiliation.

So as of right now, I am personally thanking Obama.  Because of him, millions of us are now fighting to defend and protect our constitutional rights.

We are fighting election fraud and we are defending freedom of religion–meaning people can worship as they choose without government interference and can assemble without fear of Uncle Sam knocking on the door attempting to dictate the sermon.

Yes, We the People should be thankful that Barry has reminded us how fragile our liberty can be, causing so many of us to stand strong with a united front to protect our rights.

Now, because of Obama, we are acutely aware of what “freedom of speech” really means.  People are up in arms about the government attempting to control what individuals and privately owned corporations can and can’t say.

And speaking of arms, we have also been reminded of how very important our 2nd Amendment–the right to bear arms – really is.  We should definitely be thanking Barry for this one because more people are buying guns than ever before.  Thank you, Barry, for waking up that drowsy giant.

If Obama weren’t in office, ordinary people would still be pressing the snooze button.  Thankfully the alarm has gone off and people are in wake-up mode with the throttle on full blast.

Our constitution wasn’t much of a conversation piece before ‘ol Barack came along. Now, ordinary American citizens have drawn a line in the sand and said, “No more, enough is enough!”

Before his placement into the Oval Office, Americans went on their merry way and didn’t get involved in “issues” because there wasn’t a need to.  Many folks thought, “The government knows what it’s doing”.  Sure, a few politicians were crooks, but there’s always a bad apple in every barrel.

But then, Obama came along and suddenly we were learning about things like Sharia Law.  His administration scolded us when we questioned it saying, “Come on people, you’re being overzealous and judgmental!  There’s nothing to worry about, just a few people wanting to practice their particular brand of faith.

So you see my fellow patriots, we should be thanking Barack Hussein Obama for showing us what we’re fighting for.  Now, more than ever, ordinary Americans are getting involved to protect all rights for all people—no matter their color, creed or anything else–as our constitution provides.

People have had enough of corrupt politicians and their land grabbing political correctness, striving to shaft the United States into the dark ages.  So indeed, we should be thanking the president for bringing us back to life to take a stand and saying, “No More – here’s the line in the sand.”   No more complacency.  Thanks to this administration, we’ve been reminded what this great nation was originally intended for – government of the people, for the people, by the people with freedom for all, Under God, with liberty and justice for all, and reminded us that the United States is worth fighting for!
