Barack Obama doesn’t see America the way you do

By 22 Comments 1,076 views

Barack Obama, hailing from Kenya – if only for college application purposes – and growing up in Indonesia, has always had something of an outsider’s perspective of the United States. Even when he lived in the United States, he lived in Hawaii, an island that up until two years before he was born was not even a state.

Of course the United States is a nation of immigrants, which by definition means that it has always beckoned outsiders. Usually they had a vision of the United States as one of opportunity and freedom of the sort not found in most places on the planet nor during most of human history. Whether coming from a famine ravaged Ireland or a war torn Italy or an economic basket case like Haiti, the United States for most outsiders is something very much resembling John Winthrop’s shining “city upon a hill”.

Barack Obama had a different experience. Growing up with an absent – but anti western – father, a leftist mother and Communist sympathizing stand ins for his father, his image of the United States is one that most Americans would disagree with – or at least most did until the last few decades.

Barack Obama’s view of the United States sees it as an oppressor. One where whites have subjugated minorities for 240 years. Where the rich prey upon the poor. Where equality of outcomes is the true determinant of freedom, or lack thereof. Beyond our borders the United States was and is imperialist in acts if not in name. Using its military and economic might, the United States dominates the world to achieve its ethnocentric and self centered goals.

What is perhaps most telling about Barack Obama is that he, the “Constitutional scholar”, fundamentally misunderstands the basic element of the Constitution, the compact which allowed the United States to soar above any nation in human history in terms of the prosperity it has brought to itself and across the planet and the impact it has had on freedom around the world. Rather than recognizing the empowering nature of its limited government, for Mr. Obama, the Constitution is “a charter of negative liberties,” which “says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”

Today we are experiencing – even if you’re not seeing much of it in the media – Barack Obama unleashed. If this were a Hollywood movie it might be called: Barack Obama: The Un-American. He is in the process of turning America into a dysfunctional banana republic by opening our borders to hundreds of thousands if not millions of people who have little appreciation for our rule of law and the limited government our Constitution established. And he’s doing it in plain sight and few in the media seem to care. While George Bush was raked over the coals for Hurricane Katrina, a disaster that was very much not of his making, Barack Obama is getting a pass from the media for this humanitarian and national disaster that is very much of his making. If George Bush’s policies had caused 50,000 minors to trek over hundreds or thousands of dangerous miles, where hundreds if not thousands of them died on the journey, do you think the press would have given him a pass? Not a chance. If thousands of the girls making that trek – again because of his policies – were raped along the way, would the press have given George Bush a pass? Not likely. But Barack Obama? No blame there.

Then of course there is the question of national sovereignty. Barack Obama sees the United States as just another one of the member states of the world, equal to everyone else, no better, no worse. As every nation is exceptional, then none is. People who won the lottery and were born north of the Rio Grande should not have any advantages over those who were unlucky enough to be born south of it. With that guiding belief Barack Obama has embarked on a journey that will eliminate those differences, and borders. He is seeking to “fundamentally transform the United States” into a third world country, to essentially make the United States of America into a United States of the World.

His plan is to handicap the American economy so it can’t dominate the world. Make America less white, as whites are responsible for slavery, Jim Crow and most of the oppression the United States has meted out over the last 240 years, both domestically and around the world. Make government a bigger and more determinative part of life and the economy. Make citizens essentially wards of the state, because the Ivy League educated experts and the good hearted bureaucrats know better what’s right for them, from diet to jobs to neighborhood demographics to what healthcare they should be getting – but won’t be… That recipe has played itself out so well in so many places around the world… Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Indonesia, Greece, Spain and even Hawaii. A United States of the World, that should work out well for everyone…

The product of a military family, growing up in Naples, Italy and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and being stationed in Germany for two years while in the Army, Vince spent half of his first quarter century seeing the US from outside of its own borders. That perspective, along with a French wife and two decades as a struggling entrepreneur have only fueled an appreciation for freedom and the fundamental greatness of the gifts our forefathers left us.

    Does Vince really believe he can see into the minds of others?
    When Bush became POTUS. There were about 8 million “illegals ” in the USA. When he left there were 12 million there are now less than 12 million. How is that opening our borders?

    John
    you will now add a few billion more with the right calculation,
    and those for welfare recipients for OBAMA’S VOTERS, , not workers as GEORGE BUSH WAS CHOOSING,
    and a few billions more on OBAMA’S DEBT,

    After all the points made above — the analysis, the potential takeaways — the first post is a typical troll response devoid of all thought, towing the line for all the evils illustrated in the article:

    “Bush did it”

    Complete idiocy.

    You have nothing here, John. No education, no analysis, and no rational thought. Just a blind affiliation to bad electoral decisions that you will ride down in the abyss before taking a moment for soul searching, seeing that you’re dead wrong. It’s a fact that liberals take no shame in engineering numbers to fit their narrative and induce the vote-capturing panic they need to “win”.

    The death of this republic comes at the hands of the overactive ignorant. “Winning” is for children. Consensus and Conversation are for adults. An informed electorate would never have voted for this Manchurian Candidate, and that is fact.

    You shame us all by being actively stupid. Grow up. Your ignorance is killing people.

    We can only guestimate how many illegals are here.
    But it was the Great Recession that caused any of them to leave.
    If you want to give Obama credit for lowering the numbers of illegals, also give him credit for lengthening the recovery from that recession.
    His policies were the cause of the slowness of this recovery.

    As to Obama’s attitude…..
    It is too bad Obama never served in the military.
    I had met about six black veterans of Somalia and other official military African visits.
    Those who had been pro-Africa were transformed into total American patriots.
    Their love affair with an idealized Africa was shattered.
    The scales fell off their eyes when they saw firsthand how people really live in Africa.
    Of course, they would also be too old to be kept around Obama even as advisers.
    Obama only likes kids who used ”dude” in their professional interviews.

    Obama claims to use the Bible as a Christian, but he’s obviously never read it.
    1 Kings 12 is about a young new king taking power.
    (You’d think he’d jump at the chance to read this!)
    At first Jeraboahm took counsel from older men, but soon he dumped all of them in favor of men his own age and younger.
    The result was extra heavy loads piled on the people.
    The end result was a revolt by the people of Israel.
    Obama seems to have very idealized views of both Africa and Islam.
    He surrounds himself with those afraid to disagree with him.
    We all pay the price.

    @Nathan Blue: A very good analysis of this troll. You could have added – an IQ 30 points below his age and the ring on the nape of his neck that when pulled spouts left wing talking points no matter the subject of the post.

    @Randy: The sad thing is that there are actual left-leaning citizens that can speak intelligently about their views, and their views are worth listening to. Hell, there are plenty of Democrats that I actually like, and support.

    But it’s no longer about consensus, no longer about true democracy as guided by our constitutional republic. One faction feels their views trump all, “for the good of us all”. Most of us know where that type of thinking leads.

    None of us have all the answers, but we do the best we can. Healthy debate and dialogue have been a staple of our Republic. I simply cannot support those who would silence any American voice, no matter how misguided that voice may be. This is why I think the Democratic Party is all but dead, and I hope to see a new crop of Dem politicians take it back and restore it to a viable corner in the American thought-space.

    Right now, it’s just bullyish…and creepy.

    she think there is no BLACK PEOPLE CONSERVATIVES,
    well we have to enlighten her, she is lacking of important knowledge,
    the TEA- PARTY HAS MANY SMART AND COULD OUTSPEAK ANY ONE BLACK OR WHITE,
    FROM THE DEMOCRAT, AS THE REPUBLICANS PARTY HAS,
    AND THE CONSERVATIVES WE LISTEN TO, WHEN THEY SPEAK,
    THE PROBLEM IS THE DEMOCRATS REPEAT THE LINGO OF THE WHITE HOUSE OR ELSE OUT OF THE PARTY, EVEN IF THEY DON’T FOLLOW ALL THE TIME, THE LIES COMING OUT,
    BUT THE CONSERVATIVES ARE NOT AFRAID TO TELL THEIR MIND ALL THE TIME, THEY ARE THEMSELVES WITH THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND MIND, AND VOICE IT ANYTIME WITHOUT BEING AFRAID OF BEING SILENCE,
    THEREFOR THEY ADD A LOT TO THE WHOLE PARTY,
    AND THE PEOPLE ADMIRE THEIR OPINON, WE KNOW COME FROM THEM, FOR THE BEST OF THE PARTY,
    THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THE BEST THINKERS,
    BLACK OR WHITE OR LATINO, PARTICIPATING IN THE AMERICAN DREAM TO PROTECT OUR OWN FIRST,

    John,

    You have repeated your statistic meme over and over again without once answering the simple questions: how do you come up with your numbers? How does your source arrive at these figures? If these people are “in the shadows,” how can they be counted?

    Obama was raised by a communist mother, grandparents and mentors. He spent most of his years in foreign countries and was never taught the love of our great country. He spent his college years hanging out with communists and staying stoned and high on cocaine. The man has never loved this country nor will he ever. His love just like his ring says goes to allah. The enemy is within and his name is barack hussain obama .

    1. His black biological father ditched him and his mother at a very young age.

    2. He was then raised by what he called “typical white” family members (who, btw, took the time and effort to care for him unlike his worthless bio father).

    3. His mother went on to marry an Indonesian Muslim who sent him to Islamic schools.

    4. He later spend many years attending a hate filled religious cult that has been mistakenly called a “Church” by those who don’t know the difference between the two.

    5. He’s had everything given to him his entire life (he’s never had to actually work for anything).

    5. He’s made a career out of conning people into thinking that he wants to help them and/or give them something for doing nothing (but to vote for and/or support his hateful agenda).

    The above, and the fact that he’s a textbook narcissist, explains why he acts and thinks the way he does.

    another vet
    i think he got the OBAMACARE FOR THE MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS HE KNEW WHERE COMMING,

    THAT HAS BEEN PREPARED HALF WAY AGAIN UNFINISHED LIKE HIS OTHER FAILURES,
    AND IT’S ESCALATING TO WORSE EVERY TIME,
