Obama and the Democrats hate free Americans
By Michael Oberndorf

Obama's actions throughout his "presidency," and the active support of Democrats, have made it crystal clear that he and the party hate free Americans. Everything they have colluded on has been aimed at harming We, the People, as free citizens of a capitalist, constitutional republic. From the daily attempts to shred the Constitution, to the total fraud of ObamaCare and the use of it to attack Christians, to the looting of the treasury and redistribution of our money to Big Banks and Big Unions, to the raising of already out-of-control taxes, to the destruction of our energy industries and much, much more, we have witnessed an attack on Americans unprecedented in the history of our country.

As many of you know, the push to turn us into a Marxist/neo-fascist, totalitarian, top-down dictatorship began in 1913 with the Democrats and the "progressive movement," and has never gone away. Franklin Roosevelt and the Democrats kept the Depression alive and well in the United States for years after it had ended in the rest of the world, much like Obama and the Democrats have done with the government-created recession we are trapped in now. In both cases, socialist/collectivist policies and programs were foisted on an unsuspecting public. However, today, the blatant, outrageous lying, and the vicious attacks on conservatives are far beyond anything that occurred in the past.

What I find astonishing is the number of seemingly intelligent, supposedly well-informed "conservatives" who still do not understand what is going on. In spite of Obama's statements about his far-left proclivities in his "autobiographies," in spite of his associations with hard-core, violent, communist radicals like Bill Ayers and many others, and racist Marxists like "Reverend" Jeremiah Wright, in spite of his statements in the 2008 campaign regarding his intention to destroy the coal and coal-fired electric power industries, in spite of his attacks on our traditional culture with his support for all forms of abortion, "gay" marriage, suppression of Christianity, and disarming all Americans except the police (which he ultimately would like to all be federalized), these "conservatives" still think his total failure to do anything that benefits, rather than harms us, is the result of incompetence.

Thus, we find ourselves at the mercy of a man and a political party that that hate us for our economic system, our traditional religions, our traditional culture, our freedom, and the legal document that guarantees those freedoms, the Constitution. The genuine opposition to this in our elected government amounts to 15 to 20 Congressmen, and, at most, four Senators, three of whom are squishy on amnesty for criminal invaders.

All of the egregious laws, regulations, and executive orders have been forced on us despite the fact – repeat, fact – that a large majority of Americans, often including significant numbers of rank-and-file Democrats oppose them. Consent of the governed means nothing anymore to those in elected office and their bureaucrat co-conspirators. We no longer have government "...of the people, by the people, and for the people...." With each passing day, our freedoms become fewer, as do our options. Given the massive voter fraud in the 2012 election and the refusal of the apparently totally corrupt Attorney General and his and Obama's Injustice Department to even recognize it, much less do anything about it, the fiction that we will turn everything around in 2016 is delusional. A collectivist, totalitarian police state is being forced upon us, and We, the People, appear to be powerless to do anything to stop it.

However, appearances can be deceiving:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
