OBAMA'S 'CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN': REPACKAGED FAILED POLICIES
© 2007 - NewsWithViews.com
Barack Obama's slick campaign slogan, 'Change we can believe in' is nothing more than empty words because his "vision" is an old, worn out, failed one. Perhaps all these "progressives" need eye glasses to see reality, instead of these silly slogans that mean nothing. Popular play list from the past:
1992 Bill Clinton: Don't stop thinking about tomorrow; 1992 Bill Clinton: Putting People First 1996 Bill Clinton: Building a bridge to the 21st century; 1996 Bob Dole: The Better Man for a Better America
2000 Al Gore: Prosperity and progress; 2000 Al Gore: Prosperity for America's families
2000 George W. Bush: Compassionate conservatism; 2000 George W. Bush: Reformer with results
2004 John Kerry: Let America be America Again; 2004 George W. Bush: Yes, America Can!
Did any of the clever word smithing above make one bit of difference in what's happened in this country the past 15 years? Marxist Bill Clinton unconstitutionally invaded and bombed Kosovo based on lies, the national debt continued to grow, social security continued to go broke because it can't be saved and contrary to all his promises, he didn't save it for the old folks. Bush's campaign promises meant nothing. He has taken us into more unconstitutional wars based on lies. He hasn't saved social security while the national debt continues to grow. There's no money in the people's treasury, but Congress under Clinton and Bush have spent our children's future into nothing but mind-numbing debt. Flip Romney's slogan is 'True strength for America's future.' It means nothing. Why? Because these incumbents and candidates know nothing about the U.S. Constitution or simply choose to ignore it for bigger government and more votes.
I would love to debate Obama on the issues. He doesn't even know our legal form of government, always pushing the failure of democracy:
Fisher Ames, a founding father said "A democracy is a volcano which conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction. These will produce an eruption and carry desolation in their way." Benjamin Rush said; "A simple democracy is the devil's own government." John Adams said; "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." James Madison, called the Father of the Constitution: "Democracy is the most vile form of government... democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths."
Has Obama told his supporters that social security can't be "saved," that you are not required to have an SSN to live or work in the U.S., but will be taxed for this taxing scheme even if you choose never to enter the system? It's called indentured servitude and apparently Obama wants his supporters to remain little better than slaves. Has he proposed getting rid of the scam called withholding, which would benefit the middle class, the poor and create jobs? No. Has he proposed to eliminate taxes on tips for service workers across this country which would benefit those who need it the most? No. Has he told his supporters the truth about health care: the Constitution forbids any universal or national health care scheme? No. His so called solutions to education, just like Clinton, Edwards and the others, represent the same old failed "solutions" force fed down America's throat for the past 40 years. More trillions for education will accomplish nothing.
As for Obama's position on the unconstitutional invasion of Iraq, his statements one day before the Democratic National Convention are a real eye opener:
Obama says war to decide election July 27, 2004
"Boston - Barack Obama, who will deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, said Monday that he believes the Iraq war will be the deciding factor in the presidential contest, but that he does not think there is a great difference "on paper" between presumptive Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry and President Bush on the issue...On Iraq, on paper, there's not as much difference, I think, between the Bush administration and a Kerry administration as there would have been a year ago," Obama said during a luncheon meeting with editors and reporters of Tribune newspapers. "There's not that much difference between my position and George Bush's position at this stage. The difference, in my mind, is who's in a position to execute."
"ABC News' Jonathan Greenberger Reports: In what may be a blow to his support among the anti-war left, the Associated Press is reporting that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., says that if President Bush vetoes the war funding bill because of its timetable for troop withdrawal from Iraq, the Congress will then swiftly provide the president with another version that lacks such a provision.
"Already, Obama is taking heat for his remarks from some of the anti-war left, which is a key constituency for his campaign. Influential liberal blogger Markos Moulitsas wrote on Daily Kos that he wishes Obama's comments were an April Fool's Joke. "What a ridiculous thing to say. Not only is it bad policy, not only is it bad politics, it's also a terrible negotiating approach," wrote Moulitsas. "Obama just surrendered to Bush."
Says It: No
War Funding Without Withdrawal Timetable
"At Tom Harkin's annual steak fry in Iowa yesterday, Barack Obama finally said what many on the left have been waiting to hear: That he will only support future war funding measures that contain a timetable for withdrawal."
ramps up Iraq, Afghanistan spending
Washington - The Democratic-led Congress authorized more Iraq war spending on Friday, sending President Bush a defense bill requiring no change in strategy after failing again to impose a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawals. The defense policy bill, approved 90-3 by the Senate, also expanded the size of the U.S. Army and set conditions on the Bush administration's plan to build a missile defense system in Europe. The measure already had passed the House and now goes to Bush, who is expected to sign it into law. It authorizes Pentagon programs expected to cost $506.9 billion during fiscal 2008, which began in October."
How convenient that the two of the so-called 'top tier' Democrat candidates weren't available to vote on that bill. No vote cast: Obama, Biden, Clinton. Please remember there is a difference between a nay vote and a no vote. As far as I could tell, Obama was on the road with queen of gab, Oprah, and missed this important vote. Marxist Hillary Clinton was in Iowa trying to convince voters that she has bigger marbles than the other boys; how very convenient she also missed this critical vote. But, it saves her the effort of trying to figure out how to flip flop yet again her position on the unconstitutional invasion of Iraq. I'm sure Obama, Biden and Clinton's constituents appreciate such fine representation from their public servants.
Here is what that vote on December 14, 2007, promises more of from both Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Senate (Keep in mind The Boston Globe just endorsed pro-war monger John McCain who was also a no vote). While these candidates were out campaigning and didn't vote that day, two new coffins will be added to the thousands.

There is NO money in the U.S. Treasury. It is over drawn more than $9 TRILLION dollars. Every penny of that defense bill will have to be borrowed from the privately owned "Federal" Reserve. The immoral interest will be piled on the back of your children and grand children so that their lives, their future, will be nothing more than oxen under the yoke. And what is all that money going to buy? How about more of this: US Paid $32M For Iraqi Base Never Built and $1 BILLION in Military Equipment Missing In Iraq. Let's not forget these war profiteers contractors like Halliburton paid tens of BILLIONS of borrowed dollars. Now we have rapes to deal with and Blackwater Slaughter In Baghdad 'A Horror Movie' - all paid for by the sweat off your back.
Let's not forget how we "liberated" the people of Iraq with this invasion: "After the invasion of Iraq, the US government claimed that women there had "new rights and new hopes." In fact their lives have become immeasurably worse, with rapes, burnings and murders now a daily occurrence: Even under Saddam, women in Iraq - including in semi-autonomous Kurdistan - were widely recognised as among the most liberated in the Middle East. They held important positions in business, education and the public sector, and their rights were protected by a statutory family law that was the envy of women's activists in neighbouring countries. But since the 2003 invasion, advances that took 50 years to establish are crumbling away. In much of the country, women can only now move around with a male escort. Rape is committed habitually by all the main armed groups, including those linked to the government. Women are being murdered throughout Iraq in unprecedented numbers."
Not one of these candidates has told their constituents or voters on the campaign trail the truth about the economy other than clever rhetoric. As a matter of fact, on Obama's official web site, 'Issues' page, there is no mention of his solution to the looming financial tsunami, just his "innovative" ideas that aren't worth the cyber space used to hawk them.
I've spent the last 18 long years learning how government systems actually work versus the lies told the American people by slick politicians like Willard Romney, John McCain, Marxist Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee, John Edwards, Rudy Julie Annie, Freddy Thompson, etc., the exception being Congressman Ron Paul. While I'm not known as a sesquipedalian, my columns are long because I'm trying to help Americans understand the issues based on the facts, not political hype and false hopes. Tens of millions care nothing for the U.S. Constitution or the rule of law, only what mother government can give them and that is a sad fact. They have been weaned onto government dependency and know nothing else but government programs that got them into bondage to begin with. However, tens of millions of Americans do care and they want the truth.
Polls are now indicating that Americans are most worried about the (1) economy; (2) the illegals invasion, and (3) the undeclared war in Iraq. If you would like to learn the truth about some of these issues, I would invite you to set aside reading time and get to it.
Health Care: Lowering the Cost of Health Care, Diagnosing Our Health Care Woes, How to Create Jobs and Cut Medical Care Costs, Election 2004 Campaign Issue: Health Care, Health care is your personal responsibility, The High Price of America's Gluttony, Sloth, gluttony & the coming medical financial tsunami, another dozen columns including facts about poisons like fluoride and aspartame, found in diet soft drinks and hundreds of food products at your supermarket.
Dr. Edwin Vieira wrote a critical column recently that every American needs to read. I have written so many columns on the economy and what you're seeing right now with the sub prime melt down is just the tip of the ice berg, because it's about to hit the states and local municipalities hard. By next summer more than a MILLION homes will go into foreclosure and all these bail outs and Band Aids by Congress is not going to stop what is going to shock many Americans. Obama's "change we can believe in" is just more empty words. I highly recommend you diversify some of your assets into gold like the big boys because what's coming isn't going to be pretty; you can call Harvey Gordin at El Dorado Gold (602.228.8203) and allow him to give you some good advice.
Americans said they wanted change in 1992. Nothing changed, it got worse. Americans said they were fed up in 2006 and wanted change. Nothing has changed and it's going to get ugly. Only a return to constitutional government will restore this republic and that won't happen until Americans stop listening to empty election promises, get educated on the issues and throw out incumbents from county commissioners to the White House. And, even though millions do want to do just that, it won't happen until ALL electronic ballot machines are eliminated and we return to hand marked ballots, counted by hand in front of the public, in the precincts before they go to the county clerk.
