Tomorrow begins Barack Obama's last year in office. Thank God. He surely qualifies as one of the most damaging and destructive presidents in U.S. history. Some folks say that 2016 will be "the end of an error," and that Obama's presidency was "One Big Ass Mistake America, O.B.A.M.A." Yes, they are right.
It is scary and surprising that American freedom is so fragile and precarious, so easily swept away by cultural fads like electing the "first African-American President," without giving much weight, if any, to his philosophical underpinnings, his lack of experience and wisdom, his radical ideology. As a president, Barack Obama has been a disaster, doubling the national debt, weakening the military, damaging the economy with his foolish health care plan (which doubled the cost of health care while reducing the coverage for most Americans), his opposition to domestic energy production, his naive moral and other support for Islam, his flooding the country with third world immigrants, thus increasing crime and welfare dependency but increasing the voting base for the Democratic Party, which was his main objective all along.
In 2016, Obama will do his best to further his leftist goals, including more wealth redistribution schemes, using taxes from productive citizens to buy the votes of the non-productive, import more low-skilled immigrants from Mexico and the Middle East, regardless of the economic cost for the former and the terrorism danger from the latter. The Republican Party has become a joke, and will not seriously oppose Obama's policies.
One more year. Let us survive it with as little damage as possible, until January 2017, when we will finally be rid of this incompetent, radical ideologue, and perhaps finally able to begin repairing the damage and destruction that his presidency has wrought.
