My Country No More

By | November 7, 2012

The election is over. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am, along with many others, I am sure. However, the thing that I am most disheartened about is that we are no longer a center-right country. It seems the people of this country have chosen to go the way of bigger Government and with that comes fewer freedoms; The Supreme Court will without a doubt be dominated with Liberal justices,  I hope the people understand what they have given up.

Yes, Obama is a big Government guy, he still thinks that Government is the answer to all problems, he is supposed to be a Constitutional professor, the Constitution was written purposely to restrict big Government, I guess he wasn’t much of a professor either. However, now it seems that the American people also agree with him, big Government is necessary for America, I still do not agree. He came into Washington, not for the good of the American people, but to force his idea of what America should be down our throats and to fuel his radical Liberal agenda. Yes, he was slick, slick as a used car salesman, who by the way have a higher trust factor then politicians do. Just about everything Obama did restricted the economy from growing and cut into our freedoms, but that was his agenda all along.

The main reason  freedom of the press was added into the first amendment, was to be a watchdog on big government, to try to keep government from becoming corrupt and to make sure our freedoms were not infringed upon by our own government. Well the press has failed miserably at doing its job. A stranger ran for President in 2008, he came out of nowhere, unqualified and inexperienced, his past was full of mystery and the press turned a blind eye. There were a handful of people in the press that raised important issues, but were laughed at, or called racist, because they dared to challenge the lefts liberal golden child; they wanted to elect the first black President no matter what, and what was good for  America did not matter. The press shoveled the shit and the American people swallowed.  Not only did the press help Obama get elected, but they also covered for him throughout his first term and you can bet it will continue.

I had such high hopes for a Romney Presidency, I felt our country was finally going to get back to what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our country, at least a lot closer than we were, but I guess that is not to be. Right now, I feel about America as I would a wild son, I still love him, but I am very disappointed the road he has chosen.

In my book America, A Society Gone Wrong, I stated that I started to notice the change in the country in the 1990’s and it slowly slipped downhill from there. I guess I have to write a sequel to the book and call it, America, A Country That Is No More. I still believe that Liberal views and policies have brought this country down, so far down that I feel with the re-election of Obama, it will soon be unrecognizable, this is definitely not the country I was born into, that country is gone.

I hope that I am wrong, but I do not see the economy getting better in the near future, and I think we are going to have to settle for an America that is so-so, instead of our once great nation, we will most likely go down the same path as Greece, Italy,Spain and the others. Obama’s agenda is to make America another country just like the others, no better no worse, not the great country we once were. I am afraid we will all just have to settle, I think we have passed the point of no return, unfortunately.

This is one man’s opinion.

    You took the words right out of my mouth Chris.Obama hates this country and is backed by powerful forces to bring this country down and make us like the other socialist countries. This country is made up of too many people seeking entitlements and free stuff without working for it.I get a kick out of some libtards who laugh at us when calling Obama a socialist.Well that’s exactly what he is. What else do you call a person who beleives in sharing the wealth like he does and admits to. I don’t trust Bohner anymore either as he’s too weak and I’m losing faith in my governor Chris Christie.People voted on popularity while Romney went on substance. He’s a good man and knows how to run a business and meet a payroll and debts and deficits not like this radical muslim jerk in there now.

      Jim you are right, Romney was the most qualified man to be President in many years.
      The people of this country chose the least qualified. Unbelievable.

    Can someone please explain why “big government” equals less freedom? To me, taking away our right to marry, plan our families, educate all children, and provide basic healthcare for all severely violates our freedom. Obama was clearly the right choice. Conservative agenda to lower taxes, in favor of the wealthiest; does not translate to more freedom for all! Just breeds a nation of greed.

    1. Chris Vaca Post author

      kb, you without a doubt have a Liberal mindset.
      Government control means less choice for you less choice means less freedom. Take Obamacare they are telling you what type of coverage you must have or you will be fined or taxed, what ever you want to call it. I should be able to decide what policy is right for me. Obama says he is for the middle class, BULLSHIT, wait until all the taxes kick in from Obamacare, most of them hit the middle class.

      1. slowdownnn

        @CV, if Obamacare is so evil, then why was your candidate of choice someone who implemented something with so many of the same features when he was governing? Even the other Republican candidates said that over and over and over again… I am an odd specimen: I voted for Obama, but would’ve happily voted for someone MORE conservative than Romeny, who had made a better and more specific case than Romney did. I think all this “socialist” talk is distorting; if Obama is a socialist and Romney is not, then why isn’t Romney in favor of abolishing social security, medicare, medicaide, all corporate income tax, etc? Instead, Romney hardly laid out a plan for change other than: repealing obamacare but NOT proposing a serious alternative (and keeping a lot of the same parts of it), lowering taxes accross the board and INCREASING spending without fully explaining how in the world that would be budget neutral (besides his insignificant personal deductions limitation plan), deregulating the market a little bit (but again, few specifics) and lowering the corporate income tax a little bit (which Obama also wants to do), and maybe reforming entitlements a little bit but constantly reassuring the seniors that he wouldn’t really be doing THAT much to them. Basically, at the end of the day, Romney may ideologically be very different from Obama, but in terms of what they are actually capable of doing in office, they are nearly the same. I voted for Obama and yet I firmly believe that we need to rein in spending, reform and simplify the tax code, pay down at least some significant amount of the debt to reassure our creditors (holding some debt is probably a good thing for our country and the world, but far less than what we have now), reduce and reform government entitlements, and use hard facts and data to shape obamacare into something sustainable and effective that actually reduces the cost of healthcare (I agree that Obamacare is a VERY expensive program, almost certainly too expensive). I don’t think Obama’s first term was that great. But I also don’t think it was as horrific and evil as you seem to think it was, and I didn’t think Romney made a case that he was truly going to take significant action on a lot of these major issues. Plus, I earnestly believe that the first country to invest in and perfect green energy technology is going to benefit with a huge spike in high-tech manufacturing jobs, exports, and an independence from oil that would allow us to reduce military spending and get the hell out of middle east politics once and for all. I don’t believe that Romney was serious about anything other than coal and oil, which is great, but a thing of the past unfortunately. Do I think Obama is going to succeed in doing all of these things? Probably not. Do I think that Romney would’ve succeeded any more at doing these things? Probably not. But the reason is because our political system as a whole is broken. It’s fine with me if you want to write articles about how the president of the United States hates his own country, and is a despicable human being, but in my opinion it is NOT a productive narrative. The problem now is that even though both sides want to do a lot of the same things, they have charicatured each other and they have drawn ideological lines in the sand. Ideologies are far simpler than real problems. Because we are only capable now of arguing about fundamental ideologies, we are no longer able to tackle real world, complex, technical, problems. problems aren’t always solvable perfectly along idealogical lines. and the american people are no longer interested in engaging in discussion about the nuances of those problems. as far as I can tell, each side is just screaming indescriminately at each other about vague notions of “right and wrong”. the election was 100% status quo; it changes nothing. all that is left for us to do is figure out a collective way forward, at all levels of government, which is where we have been at for a long time now. these problems we face pre-date Obama (entitlement reform, healthcare, the national debts, budget deficits, how much to regulate and where, military spending, etc), and regardless of who is in the white house they are going to be VERY hard to solve, and will not be solved without both sides at least occasionally meeting in the middle and not looking at everything in such a stark black and white contrast. sorry for blowing up your comments board…

          I don’t understand, why did you even vote? You say neither one could fix any of the problems. Yet you vote for Obama who has 4 years of failed policies. Romney was 100 times more qualified to be president than Obama. He was a very successful Governor, successful at business. Obama cannot lead, he passes off everything for someone else to do, he leads from behind, he is even a weaker leader than Carter was. Romney has tackled big problems before, he is a proven leader. From your comment I do not understand why you bother voting if you think no one can fix the problems this country faces.
          Thanks for writing.

          1. slowdownnn

            I don’t think that no-one can fix our problems, just that it will be incredibly hard while everyone accross the spectrum is behaving the way they are. I’m scared of the future, but I think for different reasons than you. I don’t think that Obama’s supposed penchant for “socialism” is the problem our country is facing (like I said, if you look at what he supports, Romney literally is just as “socialist.” maybe a tiny bit less…). I think a complete breakdown of meaningful dialogue and staunch ideological posturing is the problem we are facing. You ask a good question, because I am no big fan of Obama. But I personally feel Obama and Romney would be almost the same in what they actually did in office, and Obama gets the slight edge from me on a few non-economic topics (I think he’s a bit stronger on science and technology, which is the future of our manufacturing/energy industries, and the path of innovation we need to take). The “leadership” quality you speak of is meaningless when both of them play the same political games and inhabit the same political infrastructure. IMO Ron Paul and Chris Christie have the most leadership around, just because they actually are their own men, and are genuinely honest people, and make you want to follow them. In a nutshell: I believe our problems are fully resolvable, I just don’t see any person on the political horizon who I expect to behave in a reasonable enough way to actually make a lot of progress on these tough decisions (and the president alone can’t make a big difference anyway). Here’s to hoping that situation changes, and a bunch of reasonable people who don’t care so much about party talking points suddenly come out of the woodwork!

        2. Chris Vaca Post author

          Well I truly believe with all my heart that America missed it’s big chance of getting this country back on track. This country is going backward not forward.

          1. slowdownnn

            well that’s fair. I agree with you, I just think the blame lies in a lot of places. anyways, I like the writing on here (I’m not trolling, I was actually here reading) and I hope you don’t think that every person who voted for Obama is ignorant and lazy and the enemy of you. I see a lot of people on a lot of comment boards discussing “civil war” and its fucking scary that america is this divided. the hate runs deep right now!

        3. Chris Vaca Post author

          Tempers are high in this country, it’s understandable, half the country wants a traditional America, the other half wants a big Government America.

        There is nothing in obamacare that dictates which plan you choose. It just mandates that we all get coverage which ultimately keeps healthcare costs down because then people can go to the doctor before something becomes serious. As it is now, people without insurance ultimately rely on the emergency department when it comes down to it, and care is 10+ times more expensive…that cost falls on everyone else in society in a variety of ways – higher insurance premiums (basically those with insurance paying for those without), people going bankrupt due to an illness…I’m in favor of supporting preventative care, insurance for all, for a healthier nation, which provides a stronger work force, leading to innovation, opportunities, and growth. At least Obama is trying and I’ve seen patients directly benefit from his policies. And no, they are not just getting a free handout or feeling entitled. They are hardworking, they are just like you and me, and having access to basic care has maintained their human dignity. We are all more alike than we are different, and I wish people would keep that in mind when it comes to taking care of our population and our country.

          kb, You really need to do your homework instead of getting your info from Liberal sites.

    Stuck? Well then, guess we better grab can of WD-40 & get ourselves UNstuck !! How? don’t know..yet..I was so angry I shredded all my note & threw them & not sure what will come down as I calm down. I DO know that I PLEDGE MY ALLEGIANCE TO THE SAME FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…& re-committed to defend it. I know that the war isn’t won by one battle & this is war. All enlistments are extended & we will march forward & not bound by chains of socialism as long as we keep OUR Constitution as the face of our freedoms.

    1. Chris Vaca Post author

      Hi Jan, I meant we were stuck with Obama for the next 4 years. situations can change, but unless we can impeach him we are stuck with him.

      1. Jan Brown

        Yes, I know. I might have said ‘loosen the nut’s grip’ instead. I was (am) thinking of ways to neutar him. There are a number of Senate seats available in 2 years among other things. I believe grass roots are extremely effective IF they ‘share in deed & mission’ & seem to’ve become rather splintered & independent of each other.there are Democrats whose supporters are disenchanted. And although Obama won, it was a minute amount near what Libertarians & green party voted. There must be a way to at least hobble his antics if we can all come together. He doesn’t have a mandate with at near 50-50 split.,,pray he makes a blatant treasonist step that cannot be covered.

    Chris, I too was very excited about Romney and was looking forward to him being a successful President. We are stuck with what we have and it is not going to be good.

    1. Chris Vaca Post author

      Jerry, You picked the right words we are stuck with what we have and there is nothing that we can do about it.

      1. Susan Lariviere

        Yes, we are “stuck” but there is something we can do: stand firm, be resolute, don’t give up hope, continue to try to educate the ignorant, support those among us (in office or not) that also know the truth. The saddest part? Alan West has lost his job. What a great American he is. What a loss for our country. We can still apply pressure on Boehner. And…our beloved Paul is still in Congress!!
        Keep the faith. It’s only “over” when we give up.
