The U.S. voters have re-elected the president for four more years. Barack Obama during his first term was the worst president since James Buchanan. Voters chose not to elect perhaps the most intelligent, honest, and family-oriented who ever ran for president, Mitt Romney.
Instead they chose a person who tells quarter-truths and half-truths. Foreign leaders have lost respect for the U.S. To make matters worse, Obama is against family values and the Christian faith.
His actions speak louder than words. These are a few things Obama is good at: making people depend on government programs with loss of choice and personal freedom; taking away their incentive to work and get ahead; spending our money on foolish companies that go bankrupt; collecting more tax dollars from the average citizen to give to the above. (Just wait until 2014 and see the tax increases already on the books with Obamacare.)
What is the effect of all of this? Making the country a socialist, welfare state or whatever you want to call it. But, without question, once people depend on Santa Claus (government), it's over. It may take a few years to notice (we learn slowly), but we have lost our last opportunity to save a great nation.
We are experiencing--whether you know it or not--the death of the United States of America.
