Which Way Are We Headed?
Where is President Barack Obama leading this nation? He has been President for over six years now, and the country has moved backwards in a lot of areas. Many liberals will argue that the President has done wonders when it comes to the economy, specifically unemployment. And while it may appear that unemployment has dropped drastically since he took office, in reality many people have just given up on looking for a job, or they are underemployed – that is, taking jobs that are either only part time or pay less than these individuals should be making. It is easy for the Democrats, led by Obama, to take the credit for the so-called “dramatic” improvements to the economy, but the fact that the Republicans in office have been working tirelessly against the “liberal agenda” ever since Obama took office shows that the conservative way has done more to benefit the economy and the nation as a whole than the passage of bills which socialize the government and put Americans last.
Obama keeps trying to take credit where no credit is due. He stands before the nation, and touts the success of his plans and the “liberal agenda”, but ignores the real problems facing the nation. He sends money to other nations, rather than investing in his own nation. There is nothing wrong with helping other nations – problems in one nation have the potential to impact the United States – but when people in the United States are facing the kind of problems that the conservatives are trying to fix, having a President who has consistently stated that he will not work with conservatives, that he will freely exercise the use of his veto pen, and that he will do anything he can to prevent conservatives from actually helping the United States is just not the answer.
There is nothing that can be done about the President now – he is in office until January of 2017 – but if the people of the United States stand together and work to stop the “liberal agenda” in its tracks, it may be possible to reverse this disastrous course the nation has embarked down, and return it to the Constitutional roots which once made the country so great: a shining beacon of what is possible when the people are united together in a common goal of working to make the best country for all of its citizens, not just a minor elite.
