Can America Survive “Post-Obama Stress Disorder”?

PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a recognized ailment whereby someone who has experienced great stress or fright requires professional treatment to overcome their dis-ease.


Barack Obama has so frightened America and so stressed the nation that it may take decades for our population to overcome the Post-Obama Stress Disorder that he has inflicted on the nation.  And given the significant blow to the very soul of our society that Obamacare and illegal immigration have caused this great nation, we don’t know how to even begin our recovery.


Aside from undermining a successful economy that assured future wealth if you work and a political system that assured liberty and opportunity for all, it’s the absolute insanity of liberals that is the most upsetting and threatening.


When Nancy Pelosi says that legislators will have to pass a bill to find out what’s in it, citizens get frightened about their legislative system.  When she states that Hamas (the terrorist group currently at violent war with Israel) is a humanitarian organization (in spite of the fact that they store missiles and launchers in schools, in the hope that Israel’s  bombs will kill Hamas’ own children) our stress level increases.


When Obama lies repeatedly and emphatically about American citizens being able to keep their own doctor and their current healthcare plans under his Obamacare law, we feel threatened.  When the IRS targets peaceful conservative organizations for a denial of rights that liberal/progressive groups get without question, we feel threatened because we know we’re being denied rights as citizens and fear what additional rights will be denied under current or future liberal administrations.

When tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are allowed to cross the border and enter our country to join the millions of illegals already here, and our president threatens to use his pen and his phone to make their presence here both legal and permanent, we are frightened at his lawlessness, especially when Congress will do nothing to directly oppose his illegal actions.  When the EPA unconstitutionally imposes Orwellian punishment on citizens and businesses (and power generating companies in particular), we see our very way of life being stripped from us by a too-big, intrusive, fascist government, and the justification for the EPA’s illegal actions is the constant lie of Global Warming. And when our legislators sit and watch these abuses take place and allow them to continue, we become terrified for the future of our families and our nation.  Can we survive POSD?  We are facing absolute insanity from our government and the leftists, and we see no way or getting our voices heard and our complaints responded to from our rulers.
