The inauguration of Barrack Obama is this week. There are many upsetting trends already taking place within his administration. From his suspect cabinet appointments, to his proposed massive spending veiled under the guise of it being a “stimulus package”. These are very concerning hints into what will be a Barrack Hussein (I guess we are allowed to say it now since he is using it in his own inauguration) Obama administration. The course of our nation at this very important time is unsettling to say the least.
One thing in particular that is very troublesome is his stance on terrorism and terrorist. He seems to think talking and negotiations are the right course of action. He seems to think closing GITMO, and affording wartime combatants the same Constitutional rights as American citizens is the proper course of action. It seems that Barrack does not quite understand that these people have an ideology rooted in the basic foundational belief that all people Christian and Jew must bow down to Allah or DIE. This is a non-negotiable ideology rooted in a firm religious belief. We see it playing out in the Hamas Israeli conflict. The terrorist have no problem putting their missile sites near schools and in neighborhoods of their own people. There cowardly leaders meet in the cover of night in hospitals knowing the Israelis cannot attack them there. After lobbing thousands of missiles into Israel, a sovereign democratic nation, when Israel finally retaliates and unfortunately civilians die because of the aforementioned tactics of the terrorists the world blames Israel. Our future leader thinks we should just have a nice little sit down with Hamas. Maybe he isn’t seeing that their fervor for killing Jews is so great that they willing sacrifice their own women and children as acceptable martyrs in the cause of Jihad.
I am very concerned with the foreign policy of this new president. I believe that America is going to be considerably weaker. Barrack made a huge statement by appointing Director of the CIA, a man with no intelligence experience who has openly stated that no discomfort should be brought on any person, combatant, known terrorist or not that is being interrogated by our intelligence services. While that is something that we would all like to be the case, it simply is not real life. My concern for our country is mounting; however I think we need to be vigilant but not afraid.
I will not fear the times we live in. I will not fear the economy. Our time here is but a vapor. We will be seated on high with the one true King of the Universe. Our destiny is secured and place being prepared. I want to enjoy this life, and I want my future children to enjoy the freedoms we have enjoyed and be able to worship freely and prosper in this land of divine providence, and because of that I will fight for those rights and voice my opinions about them, but I won’t live in fear. Our forefathers didn’t stand up to the tyranny of Great Britain for us to live in fear. We still have the means and the ability to change the course of this country and while that is still available I will hold out optimistic hope in this great nation. I believe a time is coming when America will once again shine as the shining city on the hill. When backs are pushed against the wall and nations have to rise up to evil and tyranny, they will look to us, and we will answer.
I am not happy about the direction we are headed right now, and I have concerns that we are bankrupting ourselves which will essentially cripple us, that we are weakening ourselves with silly talk about talking diplomatically with terrorists, but I don’t think we are there yet. I still believe this country is center-right. I still believe that conservative ideals and principles will thrive in this country and return us to the right course. This congress and president are going to make things difficult. They are going to do damage, there is no doubt, but I will continue to pray and believe that out of this storm we will become a greater stronger nation. The times of Carter were bleak and dark and out of it arose one of our greatest presidents in this nation’s history, a president that set us on a great course, strengthened our nation and gave us all optimistic hope in what we were capable of achieving. A president who overcame an economic crisis of double digit inflation, double digit unemployment and interest rates in the teens. He did it with sound conservative principles, and our economy thrived. Most importantly he defeated evil all over the globe without firing a shot. We CAN do it again.
