Is there any comparison of Lincoln and Obama?
posted December 16, 2009
At the dedication of the National Cemetery honoring those who died in
the civil war Abraham Lincoln said “We here highly resolve that these
dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation under God shall
have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the
people shall not perish from the earth.”
Obama has compared himself to Abraham Lincoln, but it appears that he
is now treading on his grave and trying his best to destroy what he and
this nation fought for.
He is trying to trample out any existence of government for the people
and by the people. Instead he is trying to replace it for government of
the people period.
He is using his charismatic charm and wiles to fool us into thinking
that he is doing what is best for all by equalizing the playing field
and making the wealthy share it with the less fortunate. I believe you
should help your fellow man. That is always what we've done in the
past. We all rolled up our collective sleeves and did what was needed
to correct whatever was thrown our way. Every one did their job.
Today the government is wanting to create a welfare state, or rather a
welfare nation where everyone is standing in line for their "fair
Companies and the people are going to want to do less to try to build
their businesses if they are expected to be taxed out of a profit in
the name of welfare. Young people today are being conditioned not to
strive to do more to succeed. Instead they are shown how to use the
system to get more for themselves by doing less to earn it.
I am not that old, only 58. I was taught that if you wanted something,
you worked for it. I was taught that if you wanted anything in this
world it was yours if you had the gumption and willingness to earn it.
Today’s generation does not want to expend any more energy than
necessary in order to survive. Not that they are lazy, its because they
are offered a free ride.
I don't begrudge the wealthy if the earn it. The majority did it to
help themselves and created a lot of opportunities for others as well.
My hat is off to them. I do begrudge the lazy ones who make a living on
welfare programs that were intended to be used by people who were less
fortunate and honestly needed it.
Obama is very methodically destroying our free enterprise system of our
nation, and will soon bankrupt our nation to the point that we cannot
afford to defend ourselves much less help other nations on a world wide
Regan ended the cold war by bankrupting Russia. Who is orchestrating
what is going on in our country for Obama?
I honestly do not for the life of me understand when so many people see
what is going on and do nothing about it. I don't think that many
people out there are afraid to speak out. I just don't know amongst all
or our elected governors, congress and representatives has what it
takes to say enough is enough an stop what is going on today and fix
You cannot borrow yourself out of debt, and if this is Obama’s plan
then we need someone else running our country. Someone who is not
afraid to ask his fellow countrymen and women for help.
We don't need another bail out that we will never be able to repay. We
do need the brains of this country to come together with a plan that
makes sense and is fair to all.
What can I do?
