Obama's election was full of hope for many. A number of the Americans who voted for him wanted a change from politics as usual, and wanted the transparent and ethical administration that he promised. What they got was an unpleasant surprise. Most of Obama's cabinet and czars came from the corrupt Chicago world of machine politics and conducted themselves worse than their counterparts in the Bush administration. Obama's health reform consisted not of reform but of a government takeover on an impossible scale. Hundreds of governmental bodies were created to oversee doctors who will be reduced to little more than government bureaucrats. Those that stay in the business, that is. Obama voters laughed and scoffed at us when we warned that he was a socialist. How absurd, they said. How do you like increasing spending and tripling debt in one year to the point of rivaling European socialist countries. How's THAT for socialism. Do you believe us now? Do you believe now that our country is better off with socialism, the system that punishes people for working hard? Is that the America of our hopes and dreams? Or is that a country of immature babies. A place where people don't believe in themselves, don't believe in equal opportunity. Only equal outcomes, never mind who's property is stolen to make it happen.
No. Americans got a gooey, sticky lollipop thrust into the palm of their hands and they recoiled. How much, we will see tomorrow.
Remember to get out and VOTE.
