It’s not like he didn’t tell us.
It’s not like all the warning signs were not there for all of us to see.
Barak Obama’s now infamous words, “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America” have come true. Remember when he told Joe the Plumber “we just have to spread the wealth around”? Well, he spoke the truth. Like in “The Wizard of Oz”; “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”; we believed the media when they downplayed Reverend Wright and Bill Ayers.
Move on, there is nothing to see here.
America bought it hook line and sinker and now it is becoming crystal clear. Obama's plan is working and in three and a half years he has taken America in a completely different direction and the results are disastrous.
This is no accident. Obama and his minions in the White House along with his many Czars are not stupid people. On the contrary, they are “scary” smart and dangerous to our liberty.
I wonder how many people who scoffed at the idea that Obama means to collapse the system are now re-evaluating their position. Because we can turn a blind eye no longer; this could be a deliberate and calculated effort.
If he isn’t deliberately overwhelming the U.S. economy to create economic crisis, social chaos (class warfare/Occupy Wall Street) and systemic failure, his plan at least is creating the conditions for it.
Here are some numbers and facts:
#1. The unemployment rate is holding steady at over 8%, currently at 8.3. The number of people who are unemployed, meaning they are 16 or older, not in the military, a prison or a mental institution, and have actively looked for a job in the last four weeks jumped by 45,000 during the month of June, climbing from 12,749,000 to 12,794,000 in July. During July, the number of people who simply left the labor force (150,000) exceeded the number of newly employed (45,000) by more than two to one (105,000). The real unemployment rate is 15% or more.
#2. There were 45 million people on food stamps in 2011 and that number has expanded in the first half of 2012. It is expected to continue to rise over the next few years. More people are receiving government assistance than ever before. Half of all American households are receiving government aid.
