th Obama ruling against the Keystone XL pipeline, he continues a direction which he has maintained from the very beginning, and will only accelerate should he win again in November. Think about some of the major actions of this administration:
- A huge “stimulus” bill, most of which went to his supporters. If you look at where most of the money from the bill went, it went to businesses which supported his campaign, it went to businesses with union employees, it went to businesses which were ideologically aligned to his vision – during the auto bailouts, there were underreported reports that more car dealerships run by Republicans were shut down than those run by Democrats
- ObamaCare is a huge intrusion of government into the most private aspect of our lives: as if the government does not have enough control over us – with ObamaCare, the state will literally have a complete say over how we run our own bodies. This is wrong, and was the furthest thing from the vision of our founders
- Wars and more wars – while he presented himself as the one who would end the wars and bring back our troops from Iraq and Afghanistan – while he may have shuttered most operations in Iraq, things are still going strong elsewhere, and if anything he started even more undeclared wars in other places – I think the number is up to 6 or 7 now. This, coming from the “anti-war” President – no wonder so many of his supporters, even on the progressive side, are now publicly expressing their displeasure with him
- His incredibly cavalier, royalty-like attitude when it comes to his life in comparison ot the lives of Americans – I don’t think there has been any previous president who acted with such disregard to the lives of the American people – the endless golf games, the incredibly expensive vacations, its as if he is literally rolling in our money in front of our eyes, rubbing his abuse of money stolen from us in our faces. It is simply disgusting
- And finally, his latest, the killing of the Keystone XL pipeline is yet another blow against the private sector – his vision is to have huge swaths of Americans on the dole, being paid, working or not, directly by the Federal government, instead of them working for productive, private enterprises. In fact, the killing of Keystone XL was a double blow: it was not only a destruction of many American jobs, companies and money for the states it was slated to go through, it was a huge win for our likeliest top enemy of the 21st century, whether it be economic or military, which is of course, China. Obama killing Keystone XL is not only a blow for American, it is a boon for China
Which nation will be the world’s leading superpower a few decades from now? I fervently hope it is the United States, and I have great faith in American ingenuity. But the Obama administration’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline is a reminder of why our No. 1 position is in jeopardy.
