My thoughts listening to Barack Obama's Inauguration SpeechSubmitted by No.7 on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 20:58
"What makes us exceptional, what makes us America is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago." - President Obama
Isn't this the same President that told us he wouldn't allow the States to peacefully secede? Is not The Declaration of Independence a call to secession? Could we not make a list of crimes by Obama longer than that of George III? I agree with the President that the ideas in our Declaration of Independence is what made this country exceptional. The ideas of freedom, inalienable Rights, and limited Government, nothing like the President's ideas of socialist healthcare, disarmed citizens, and a never ending drone war.
"Together we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play. Together we resolve that a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life’s worst hazards and misfortune." - President Obama
I disagree, plain and simple. The free market always thrives without rules, consumers make the rules by free choice. The free market enables competition while Government regulations hinder competition. The free market forces fair play while Government gives bailouts to it's friends who in turn give millions to campaigns of both partys. These sentences from the President can be summed up by: "Each to his own ability, each to his own need." - Karl Marx
"For we have always understood that when times change, so must we, that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges, that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action." -President Obama
COLLECTIVE ACTION is required to preserved individual freedoms?????? Leave this one to Ayn:
"Collectivism holds that the individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group . . . and that the group may sacrifice him at its own whim to its own interests. The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by means of brute force—and statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism." - Ayn Rand
"A decade of war is now ending, and economic recovery has begun" - President Obama
I call BS, the wars aren't ending and the economy isn't recovering. These are both giant bold face lies to the nation that anyone with a working brain and internet access can see right through. How can a President get away with this? This is where I quit listening and turned off the TV. The things our President is saying scare me, but the crowds cheering these lies and Marxist doctrine scare me even more.
"And He said to them, 'To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables. So that seeing they may see and not percieve, and hearing they may hear and not understand; lest they should turn and their sins be forgiven them.'" Mark 4:11-12
Here's to hope in the next four years and change in 2014. May God help us all and deliver us from the trials and tribulations to come. Hopefully Democrats will start to see through this man and find Libertarian-ism. God Speed
That's my $0.02, What does everyone else think?
