Ten Disasters America Will Face if Obama Gets a Second Term!

Steverno~POTL~PWCM~JLA 2012/03/06 22:30:46

In today’s Washington Post, I argue that while electing a transformational conservative president may not be in the cards this November, stopping a transformational liberal president still is. The damage of a second Obama term could be potentially irrevocable. I asked a number of conservative thinkers what they feared most from a second term, and compiled this list of the top ten disasters that would befall America if Obama were re-elected this fall:

1. Obamacare will not be repealed.

2. The unprecedented levels of spending in Obama’s first four years will become the new floor, as America sets new records for fiscal profligacy and debt.

3. Job creators will face massive tax increases, and more Americans will come off the tax rolls—resulting in fewer citizens with a stake in keeping taxes low and more with a stake in protecting benefits.

4. Government dependency, already at record levels, will continue to grow.

5. Four lost years in dealing with the entitlement crisis will become eight—digging us into a hole from which we may not be able to emerge.

6. Obama, unworried about the impact of gas and electricity prices on his reelection, will finally wage the regulatory war on fossil fuels the Left demands.

7. He will unleash the Environmental Protection Agency to impose crushing new burdens on U.S. business.

8. His administration’s assault on religious freedom will go on and expand to new areas.

9. The Defense Department will be gutted, with cuts so deep that America will no longer be a superpower.

10. Obama could have the opportunity to appoint more liberal Supreme Court justices, ending the Roberts court in all but name for a generation.

This is, of course, not a complete list—not by a long shot. I’d be interested what readers and my fellow AEI scholars think: What’s missing from this litany of impending disasters?

    Obama is not who he says he is from his inception of fraudulent SSN, lies about his education, ownership of his Chicago home - the man is a FRAUD! Plus (and get ready for THIS one), loss of your second amendment right to bear arms!

    Healthcare would be one step closer to single payer which would save millions and help millions.
    We had to spend our way out of the great depression.
    Where are the job creators you speak of? Small companies are the ones creating jobs now and they are getting tax breaks.
    Government dependency is due in large part to the economy created by wall street and what would you like to do with these families that can not find work?
    #5 is just a stupid statement.
    Obama can not control the global oil industry.
    #7 We must have regulations in the greedy world of today. Lack of regulations allowed the wall street rip off of our country.
    Religion has NO place in government.
    #9 cry wolf one more time, the democrats are going to take away our guns.
    Roberts court is threatening the very existence of our democracy. Allow corporate money to buy the government. Real campaign reform, taking all private money out of elections is the only way we will continue to be the United States of America.

    Ten great thing President Obama will do in the next five years.

    1. Continue to Increase employment
    2. Continue bringing jobs back to America
    3. Continue to ensure that all Americans have access to Healthcare.
    4. Continue helping homeowners to refinance their mortgage so they can stay in their home.
    5. Continue talking and engaging with other countries to keep peace and not allow terrorists to destroy America.
    6. Continue to keep wall street from being so greedy and destroying the working people.
    7. Keep encouraging children to gain education and continue to keep thieir cost under control.
    8. Keep ensuring that older americans coninue receiving their social security, medicare and medicaid.
    9. Keep mointering terrorist threats to America and taking acition on all threats.
    10. Keep encouraging and providing alternatives for oil so Americans won't be so dependent on oil particular from over sea.

    In addition to the ten things he has done are many more things he done that is not listed. Only God knows the good he will do in the next 6 years. I pray that God continue providing him wisdom as he serves the america people.

    really, you do realize if you do the math that for every job obama "creates" it costs approximently $250,000 dollars???? It is NOT his NOR the GOVERMENTS job to ensure I have healthcare!!! It is NOT HIS job to help ME keep MY home!!!! He has done nothing to Wall Street, but on that note it IS NOT his nor the goverment job to regulate Wall Street. it IS NOT his nor the goverment's job to provide education to our children (the system is greatly flawed and it too costs about $220,000 to go K-12) and lastly gas was $1.85 (national average (google it)) when obama took office. Please stop being a sheep following the herd, research and see the real truth!
  • Sterling Brady 2012/03/07 07:58:43

    Not only that, the 250k comes from succesful businesses, perhaps causing actual job loss. (that would explain unemployment going higher than Obama's initial predictions for if they wouldn't have passed the stimulus.)

    Maybe he needs to take guns away from some of his haters. Guns in his hater hands may cause problems. Hater are born with their hating ways and the only way they can rid themselves of it is to get Jesus in their life.

    Conservatives and Obama haters find no truth in anything good that President Obama does. It is a well know fact and it comes to me with no surprise. Don't waste your time worrying about what I pay. Just make sure you keep yourself out of misery territory.

    #1 what liberal knows anything about god and what he will provide ?
    #2 didnt we have all of the above before the wise leadership of obama ? well except for obamakare that has only served to make health care less affordible .
    #3 when i can find a station that sells codified unicorn piss to run me little car on i will believe in alternative energy .
    #4 . the liberal unionized education the kids are getting now is only dumbing them down to the point of them not knowing or understanding how bad they are getting screwed by the regime .
    #.5 . the bad guys dont respect us anymore , they laugh at this weak sister of a president .
    i am not gonna waste anymore time with someone that is drowning in thier own stupidity and asking for another tub of water . obama says it , you believe it , and that settles it ..right ?

    Well unless Republicans can pull their collective heads out of thier a$$'s and start to coalesce around one candidate with broad range appeal the incumbent is going to get a second term. Most likely by default as Independents are turned off and walk away. This political infighting and name calling is doing nothing more then entertaining the other side.
    The country can survive another four years of this idiot, but it can not advance with society split and fighting like middle school kids.
