OBAMA: Scary, one-world advocate

I am a child of the Depression and have lived through World War 11, the Cold War, the Korean War and the conflicts that followed and always had faith that country would survive until now.

When Barack Obama was elected, I felt both proud and sad. Proud that a black person was able to be elected as president of this great country. I never thought it would happen in my lifetime. The sad thing is he is the wrong person for the job.

At first, I thought he would be open to working with conservatives to ensure the values that this great country was founded on would be honored and respected. The more I hear him speak and the direction he plans to take this country scares me no end. He is not only a socialist, he is a one-world advocate. If he succeeds we may never recover.

This is a sovereign nation, but we will compromise and/or lose our values and beliefs if he succeeds.
He owns the auto, financial, and heath industries. What’s next?

Amnesty for illegals and closing down talk radio? The first will assure him more votes, and the latter will close down opposing views.

  1. Get a Zoloft prescription Ray.

  2. zombiehooliganfc says:

    Sovereign nations only lead to more war and violence. Nationalism is a dangerous toy that humans are not capable of playing with. More boundaries mean more dispute and the only way we know how to handle dispute, or pretty much everything else, is through punishment and death. “One World” is not a horrible thing, that can mean global cooperation, correct treatment and rights for all, and a chance for the next steps in human evolution. We are so warped that we see our wars as badges of pride when they are more of shameful reminders that we are not civilized and not mature enough to figure things out without violence.

  3. aislander says:

    That government that governs best governs least and is closest to the governed. Any “one-world” government would be a loooong way away from its subjects. Orlowski is right and has touched a nerve judging from the porcine squeals his letter elicited…

  4. madmike272 says:

    Leftists like zombie worry me as much as Obama.

  5. Roncella says:

    Listen up for the new phases One World Order and One World Government,. Hillary & Bill Clinton use it often in speeches along with Obama, Pelosi, Reid,
    Michelle Obama, and many other Progressive/Liberal/Dems….

    The right to own property and so many others rights will, little by little be taken away from citizens one step at a time.

    Teach your children/friends about American History and the different Wars and why America went to War, and what it accomplished in the process. Teach them about the Constitution and the founders who wrote it.

    Talk with your family members about Liberal/Progressives and why their beliefs are not for a strong America, with less Government intrusion, the right to bear Arms, balancing the budget, stopping all the Government take overs.

    All Conservatives/Independents/Republicans/Enlightened Democrats get registered and Vote this November and get your friends and family to join you.

  6. Every time I hear that sound bite by GH Bush “New World Order” I see Obama actually saying it with an upraised effeminate fist.

  7. Aislander you’ve gone straight to the heart of the matter, but you’ll never convince those who just can’t grasp the dangers in this.

  8. LuckyCharm says:

    ai, tell that to Billy Nungesser right now.

    What would you be saying if you were one of his constituents? A shrimper, perhaps, whose livelihood has been devastated by the BP gulf gusher? “Well, go tell it to the mayor, they’re the ones best able to help with this….”

    Your platitudes bear little, if no, relation to real life. If you think they do, I’d challenge you to offer, even ONCE, a real-world example of how your theories hold up in practice.

  9. the3rdpigshouse says:

    Ray – you are absolutely correct – “OH-Bummer” is a marxist/socialist whose definition of the “transformation of America” is to dismantle it and to recreate it to a misguided socialist utopia without the freedoms you enjoy today!!!! This guy must be defeated as soon as possible or we should all be worried as to what direction our nation is taking!

  10. Volks253 says:

    Turn off fox news Ray, they are lying to you and it shows.

  11. Volks253 says:

    History shows that the down fall of this nation started when the conservatives took power 30 years ago, beginning with reagan. look at how far down they and their ‘values’ have taken us. It’s been a sleigh ride down hill and the last admin. greased the skids!
    Every major problem we face right ow is the direct result of conservative policy.
    Anyone that denies that is only fooling them self.

  12. One world Order = No individual freedoms = One World Slave!

  13. An absurd example LC.

  14. LuckyCharm says:

    Feel free to offer a counterexample, sozo. If the best government governs least and is closest to the governed, then why wasn’t everybody jumping all over the mayors and the parish presidents closest to the BP spill to do something about it? No, they went straight to the top — “What’s Obama doing about this?”

    They don’t want federal regulation to KEEP disasters from happening, but they sure do want the feds to step up smartly to the plate to fix it when they do. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a PRO-active instead of a RE-active government? Or would that just be too boring?

  15. yellaman says:

    After reading all the comments, I find it amazing that people are made at the wrong people of goverment. It sthe coporations that are killing this country not OBama. Peaople want to blame him for a mess that he stepped into did we not see this coming. In my opinion Obama is to conservative or middle thinking for my taste. I wish he was more liberal because this country needs some drastic change to get back on track. The deregulation of this country has killed us and will on continue until we as a majority stadn up and fight for true change. Not this tea party craziness or right wing republican talking points. I looked it as Obama is a start in the right direction but we need more push in that direction. We don’t need a Palin or Ron Paul direction.

  16. Intelligent, thinking conservatives have no problem with the federal government being involved in national disasters…like illegal immigrants pouring across our borders.

    If the feds would concentrate on the many things that are rightfully theirs to deal with, the states and local governments could concentrate on those things relevant to their local constituents.

    Extremists on one side want the feds out of everything. On the other end we have people who think we need to have Mommy and Daddy regulate everything from our intake of sugar to our word-choice.

    The oil spill is a national crisis.

  17. Roncella says:

    yellaman/LCharm, Two case studies of extreme Liberal/Progressive reasoning and lack of Brain thrust.

    sozo gives an intelligent answer in reply to more extreme leftest bable.

    The Progressives have the most Radical President and totally liberal Controlled Congress in the History of America. They are moving Amercia as fast as they can to a leftest Socialist form of Government, reflecting a more Europian form of Government.

    They don’t see America as that shining city on the hill. They don’t see the American President as the leader of the Most Powerful Country In The World. They see an America that is pushy and agressive and one that has committed many mistakes in the World.

    All Conservatives/Indpendents/Republicans/Enlightened Democrats get registered, get your family and friends to register and Vote this November.

  18. LuckyCharm says:

    So, sozo, what is your example of “That government that governs best governs least and is closest to the governed”? Is the Tacoma City Council a fair example? It’s about as close as you can get to “the governed.” Does that make it functional and effective? You tell me.

  19. Perhaps if the Tacoma City Council didn’t spend precious time blathering on about another state’s decisions, it would actually BE effective.

  20. donjames says:

    LC, the Tacoma City Council is (unfortunately) representative of this particular liberal urban electorate. A better example would be the UN. How’s that experiment in world governance workin’ out for ‘ya?

  21. the3rdpigshouse says:

    “OH-Bummer” is a recognized marxist/socialist with nothing good to offer the USA – get rid of this anti-American as soon as possible before the damage he is inflicting on the USA is irreparable!!!

  22. LuckyCharm says:

    You’re kinda making my point, sozo — it’s not the size of the governing body, or how “close” it is to the governed. It’s the people who comprise it and how effectively they can work together toward common, beneficial goals.

  23. aislander says:

    I find it amusing, sozo, that certain lefty shills ask for examples of small-government success (how about America for its first century and a half?) when there are manifold examples of big-government failure…

  24. Excellent point aislander.

    And who lacks the logic and reasoning ability that they cannot see the obvious…the closer you are to the situation (local and state government…where you have “skin in the game” as they say…where your children and grandchildren are growing up) the more likely it is that you will actually listen to constituents and understand what they need.

    “Big Gov” always makes me think of the wizard in The Wizard of OZ, a little man, and just a man at that, behind a curtain, doing his level best to appearing to have super powers….only to have a nasty oil spill disrupt the curtain to reveal who he really is.

    It’s little wonder that the president’s approval rating is plummeting. He had no place to go but down after having been hoisted up on that messianic pedestal created for him during the election campaign.

    Sorry for the digressio. Just thinkin’ about the big picture.

  25. aislander says:

    I find it amusing also (to use a Palin construction) that no lefty had any problem with my use of the word “subjects” when any American would choose “citizens…”

  26. aislander says:

    LuckyCharm wrote: “…it’s not the size of the governing body, or how “close” it is to the governed. It’s the people who comprise (sic) it…”

    Well exactly. Once you set up a powerful structure you can’t know who is going to be in charge of it in the future–unless you design that structure to prevent anyone but YOUR people from being in that position. Even then, since it is impossible to read people’s souls, you can’t know if there is an incipient Hitler within one’s own ranks…

  27. beerBoy says:

    aislander – no righter got upset about your use of the word “subjects” either.

    it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    A line from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, from Act 5, Scene 5

  28. aislander says:

    It was a throwaway line, Polonius, but I used the word advisedly and wanted to see if anyone, right or left, would notice…

  29. LuckyCharm says:

    ai and sozo, please explain for the benefit of all how our country’s government during its first 150 years was superior to our present system.

    Bear in mind that it was during those first 150 years that the three-branch system, with a bicameral legislature, was conceived, precisely to limit the power of any one of those branches. The fact that the legislature has hobbled itself with added procedural measures, effectively destroying the concept of majority rule, and the executive branch has arrogated to itself powers never originally conferred, and the judicial branch has been populated with partisan hacks, doesn’t take anything away from the original, elegant, and balanced concept.
