Barack Hussein Obama

      When campaigning for the presidency of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama announced repeatedly that he would fundamentally transform America.  Many Americans, believing that they were honored to be living in the greatest nation in the world, wondered what the words “fundamentally transform” really meant.  Most of all, what did they mean to presidential candidate Obama?

     The word “Fundamentally”, means affecting the foundation of something, and “transform”, means changing the nature or character of something.  

     Barack Obama ran his campaign on this change.  He stressed  many times that he intended to change the nature and character of the greatest nation in the world - starting at the foundation.  Now that he is the President, how successful has his ideological commitment to “transform” America been?  Let’s briefly take one segment.

     Most Americans agree that this country is now in an economic angst and a fiscal dilemma.  That the national debt alone is enough to transform a nation.  President Obama’s health care reform and other unsustainable entitlement programs are driving up costs dramatically lowering an already depressed and distressed economy.


    Earmarks and discretionary spending are out of control and the light at the end of the tunnel appears to be a lethal freight train and not the promenade out of this quagmire of financial indebtedness.  

     Are our economic woes due to a mess that the former president left?  Could it be from the current administration’s incompetence?  Could it be part of the Obama proposed fundamental reform requiring a more intrusive government? 

     Are Americans  prepared for a nation modeled after Europe’s social welfare states?  

     “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. 

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist”. — Marcus Cicero, speaking to Caesar, Crassus, Pompey and the Roman Senate.
