Mr. Obama, You Terrify Me

WASHINGTON D.C.—"Mr. Obama, You No Longer Scare Me — You Terrify Me."
In April 2009, I sent President Barack Obama a letter titled “You Scare Me,” which went viral on the Internet because he promised to “fundamentally transform America.”
Now, after observing his performance for over three years, he no longer scares me, he terrifies me for the following reasons:
■ With a compliant Democratic Party Congress and a lapdog media, he has shattered the American dream of job security, home ownership and individualism for millions of Americans and has poisoned and divided our civil society with his politics of envy, class, race and religious warfare.
■ He has surrounded himself with academicians, lawyers, politicians, bureaucrats and socialist-leaning czars.
They include people who offer no balanced suggestions and think that big government is the answer to all our problems.
■ He not only encourages but aids and abets the unionization of all American industry, the albatross around the neck of the free market.
■ He has increased the national debt by over 30 percent in just three years. If re-elected and this rate of increase continues, America will be burdened with an unsustainable $20 trillion debt, and recovery will be impossible.
■ Given his fanatical beholding to the environmentalists and the “man-caused global warming” fringe, he has deliberately discouraged U.S. fossil fuel exploration and production.
He refuses to accept that oil, gas and coal are not America’s enemies, they are America’s assets, which, properly managed, could make us energy independent within a generation.
■ Last March, he whispered to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev “this is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”
Just what is the secret that Obama and Medvedev are concealing from the American people until after the election? How many other world leaders does he have secrets with?
■ And finally, after his poor management and zero leadership, the fact that he has the audacity to seek re-election should terrify every American.
I believe that if he is re-elected, future historians and political interpreters will look back at the eight-year period from 2008 to 2016 and conclude “the 44th president of the U.S. allowed the takers to overpower the payers, which resulted in the greatest economy in history vanishing from the face of the Earth.”
Therefore, the November election is not about the next four years; it is about America’s survival.
