Though I firmly believe that Barack Obama will not be reelected, and though it is obviously clear that he does not deserve to be, I think it is important to take a look at what would be the result upon this great nation most of us love, should he be reelected. We know that his driving force has always been to fundamentally transform the United States of America, as he said himself, just four days before the 2008 presidential election. So, I have done a great deal of research and work at trying to prepare a document that is based more on facts than on emotion and outlook, though I have not completely left my opinion from the content of this essay. Read this carefully prepared document and let it sink into your mind and guide you as you prepare to vote for the future of this country. This is the most important election in the history of the republic. It shall, indeed, decide what America will look like in 2016. If Barack Hussein Obama is reelected, in 2016, I. America’s Productivity will be driven down and Unemployment Will be Driven Upward:
President Obama was very coy and did not lay out a definitive plan for a second term in his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. Nevertheless, it is clear that he will call for and pass jobs unbelievable tax increases not only on the wealthiest 2% in the nation, but also on Small Businesses. “I have not raised taxes on the middle class.” Another Obama lie: Though he has already said that he has raised no taxes on the middle class, in fact, according to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) he actually passed and is now implementing the largest and most expansive tax increase on regular working people in the history of humankind. In the passages of his health care bill, Obama has already forced working Americans to buy something they do not want or face severe penalties of thousands of dollars per middle-class households. President Obama has already stated that he will interpret a second-term victory as “A Mandate” to introduce massive tax increases on small businesses that employ the majority of middle-class Americans. He has told Time Magazine that because of his policy contrasts with Romney, he’d interpret a win as giving him a mandate to maintain the Bush-era tax cuts for people making less than $250,000.” (Darren Samuelsohn, “W.H. Plans For A Second Term,” Politico, 9/8/12)
Obama’s Dirty little Secret… Obama knows it, as do all his liberal cohorts, that a tax increase on the wealthiest 2% of Americans, in reality, translates into a tax increase on the middle-class and on the poorest in our nation. Many cannot see the truth behind his lie because of the smoke that he has shrouded his words in by his use of class warfare. When is the last time that you asked a poor person for a job? It is the wealthy that makes it possible for those on the lower rungs of the ladder to rise to the top. Yet, actually it is very easy to explain and see clearly. 1. Under the current tax rates instituted under George W. Bush, Company A makes a profit of 25%. (Business are in the business of making money, after all.) They are able to make a certain number of products and to sell those products at a certain price that the general public can afford, and with the current rates, they employ a certain number of workers in an already bad economy. 2. President Obama then raises the wealthiest top marginal rates from the current 35% to 39.6%. That means that business owners will now lose 4.6% of their profit and will set in motion several ways to recoup their losses. That is the natural manner that business works. Here is what Business will naturally have to do if Obama’s tax increase on businesses takes effect. a. Business A will then realize that to stay in business, they have to regain the profit that the government has now taken from them and cut back on productivity and make fewer goods. b. The making of fewer goods will necessitate the massive reduction of workers who create and fabricate Business A’s products by firing and laying off workers temporarily or permanently. This will cause the massive increase in the rate of unemployment. c. Next, in an effort to further regain the money Business A has lost due to Obama’s increase in taxes to the wealthiest 2%, Business A will also have to increase the prices they charge for the products and goods they produce. d. Consumers (Middle-Class Americans) will be forced to pay more for the goods and products that Business A makes at the Wal-Mart’s and Targets and in every place where Business A’s products are sold. e. In the end, Business A recoups all its lost revenue through reduction in workers and increases (Inflation) in prices, but the Middle-Class American consumers will lose their money due to increased unemployment and by paying more for the products they need at the stores. Logical Conclusion: It is, in reality, the middle class who will actually pay for the increase in taxes on the wealthiest 2%. It just does not work. Taking from those who pay to employ and produce the goods and services Americans need and buy only eventually bites those who have the least; not the most. Here’s what works: 1. Business A wants to increase their productivity, but they cannot because they do not have the funds for increased output and modernization of their infrastructure.
2. Government cuts taxes across the board and lets business keep more of their profit. 3. Business now has addition money they can invest in innovation of new products or in producing more of their regular goods. They set goals for increases because they have the money to do so. 4. Business A now must employ more workers to produce their new products or increased numbers of products. 5. These newly employed or returning workers will now become tax payers instead of government program recipients and begin to add to the nation’s revenue. 6. The government now has more revenue and can invest in the nation’s infrastructure and not allow the nation to falter because of massive deficits. Which one sounds like the most suitable course of action for the nation? If you are a conservative American who loves the nation and loves innovation and individual freedom, you will of course say the second scenario. If you are a liberal and love socialist approaches that only steal productivity and innovation and increase nation control, you will say the first one. Here are the facts: President Obama’s Tax Hikes will cause 2.1 million business owners to pay higher taxes, and each percent of increased taxes will add up to a net loss of 710,000 middle-class jobs. On July 7, 2012, the Washington Post reported that, “Researchers determined the plan would actually subject 2.1 million business owners to higher rates; specifically, those who pay pass-through taxes, like most partnerships, LLCs and S-Corporations. The result, less capital in the hands of business owners and diminished labor supply, would cost the United States an estimated $200 billion in economic output and 710,000 jobs.” (J.D. Harrison, “Obama Plan To Lift Top Tax Rates Would Plague Millions Of Small Businesses, Study Warns,” The Washington Post) President Obama’s unfair and Class-Warfare driven plan to increase taxes on those who provide jobs to the unemployed will hit small business small-business owners the hardest and they are ones who create the most jobs in America. The National Federation of Independent Business shows that if the current top tax rates are allowed to expire, the biggest single affect will be to stifle job creation and will further erode the already faltering economy. A report, published by the accounting firm Ernst & Young, showed that raising top individual rates will especially harm small-business job creators in who are already squeezed into a no-win corner.” (NFIB, Press Release, 7/17/12) II. A Second Obama Administration Will Squander American Freedom and Treasure on Unneeded and Hyper-Controlling Environmental Policies:
President Obama has already pledged to revive and pass his dangerous and unconstitutional CapAnd-Trade Plan that will only cause all of us to pay more for our energy costs such as fuel for our cars and trucks, energy to both heat and cool our homes and will invest more American treasure in companies like Solyndra, which again wasted billions of much needed American funds on a failing company that had supported Obama in his first run for the White House and went belly-up.
President Obama has not made it a secret that his most important policy he intended to address in a second term is climate change. Remember he promised to stop the oceans from rising and to heal the planet in his first run for the presidency. The New Yorker stated, “Obama has an ambitious second-term agenda, which, at least in broad ways, his campaign is beginning to highlight. The President has said that the most important policy he could address in his second term is climate change, one of the few issues that he thinks could fundamentally improve the world decades from now.” (Ryan Lizza, “The Second Term,” The New Yorker, 6/18/12) President Obama said himself that on a second term in office, “We’re going to deal with climate change in a serious way.” Obama added at a campaign rally in San Francisco, California on February 17, 2012 that, “We have to have an even more robust energy policy if we’re going to create the kind of jobs in this new energy sector that are needed and we’re going to deal with climate change in a serious way.” It is well known and has been read and heard on video that January 1, 2008, then Senator Barack Obama stated, under his cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. “When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, you know, under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Interview With the San Francisco Chronicle’s Editorial Board.) Senator Barack Obama was not afraid to state his goals to make you poorer as a result of his reckless environmental policies then, because he thought you were not listening. Evidently, America was not and he was right. Today, President Obama still thinks Americans are turning a deaf ear to his plans to future undercut your purchasing power and to continue to carry out his plans to control the way you live into the future. Will America once again be apathetic to Obama’s plans. We shall know the answer to that in the coming weeks. III. In 2013, The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will be fully implemented, which will cut a whopping $716 billion from Medicare and automatically kick in the most devastating job-destroying tax increases in the history of the nation.
The Nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has determined that Obamacare prescribed cuts to Medicare to the tune of $716 Billion will cut the heart out of the medical safety net for the elderly and the infirm. (Congressional Budget Office, Letter To Speaker John Boehner, 7/24/12.) Another medical research body, the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) released a report on Wednesday, September 7, 2012 that pointed out that Obamacare’s built-in medical tax that will take effect in 2013, will cause 43,000 Jobs to flee overseas once the tax takes effect in 2013. (Sam Baker, “Device-Makers Say Tax Will Cost 43,000 U.S. Jobs,” (The Hill,) In addition, starting in 2013, Obamacare will expand Medicare taxes to investment income and increase payroll taxes. This unbelievable assault on the people’s savings will cost the nation’s middle-class workers $318 Billion, according to a
letter to Speaker of the House of Representative, John Boehner from the Congressional Budget Office on July 24, 2012. (Letter To Speaker John Boehner ) All of this more than confirms that when President Barack Obama states often that he has not increased taxes on middle-class workers in America, he has deceitfully and ruthlessly lied to each and every one of us. IV. A second Obama term will increase America’s deficit by trillions of dollars in over the next ten years. (The deficit has grown under President Obama by over 1o trillion in his first four years)
President Obama’s Budget will increase the national deficit by almost one trillion dollars in his first year of his second term. On March 16, 2012, the Associated Press reported that, “A new analysis of President Barack Obama’s budget for next year says the deficit scenario for next year isn’t as rosy as the White House figured last month. Friday’s Congressional Budget Office report said Obama’s budget would produce a $977 billion deficit next year; $75 billion more than predicted by the White House.” (“CBO: Obama Budget Produces 2013 Deficit of $977B,” The Associated Press) The Congressional Budget Office already pointed out on March 16, 2012 that President Barack Obama’s tax and spending policies President Obama’s budget projections will expand the deficit by $6.4 trillion dollars over the next ten years, more than doubling the shortfall in CBO’s own fiscal accounting. (David Rogers, “CBO: Exploding Debt Under Obama,” Politico) I hope the nation realizes that it is not enough to build up a nation’s infrastructure and military protection if we won’t have the funds to maintain it and depend on it whenever it should be needed. The nation is precariously close to dropping the ball and having a mothballed super-powered defunct military because of the spending and taxing policies that Obama envisioned for the nation to pay for the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare.) Such numbers are astronomical and will kick in automatic and devasting cuts in the nation’s most vital interests. V. President Obama and his administration have scheduled devastating military cuts that will threaten the safety and survival of the nation:
Washington Post Associate Editor, Bob Woodward verified in his book, The Price of Politics that President Obama’s Administration is the force behind the planned massive defense cuts. Woodward correctly stated that the draconian spending cuts were the brainchild of officials in the Obama Administration and of Obama himself and not in Congress. According to Woodward, President Barack Obama’s top deputies believed the trauma at the thought of massive defense cuts would force Republicans to agree to a deficit-cutting grand deal. Austin Wright, writing for Politico on September 7, 2012 stated that, “Bob Woodward’s book could bolster Republican attack On W.H.,” Politico.)
So, what does all this say about the future of the US Military? In fact, President Obama’s Defense Cuts will cause the loss of as many as 1.5 Million Jobs. Called, Sequestration, over $1 trillion will be cut across the board in military spending in fiscal years 2013 and 2014. It will increase the U.S. unemployment rate by nearly 1 percentage point in the short term. This fact was pointed out by Lt. Col. Elizabeth Robbins, a spokeswoman of the Department of Defense on October 12, 2011. (Politifact) Take a look at this unbelievable and surprisingly honest comment by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta when he himself said February 16, 2012 that Sequestration, “And let me tell you something if sequester goes into effect, you can throw all of this out the window. Sequester doubles the numbers of cuts, does it through that crazy formula, and guarantees that we are going to hollow the force and devastate our national security.” (Secretary Leon Panetta, Appropriations Committee, Subcommittee on Defense, U.S. House of Representatives, Testimony.) VI. Obama’s plan is to use the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to Federally fund Abortion on demand:
After an initial analysis of the more than 1500 pages of Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) found that President Barack Obama’s lie was obvious. It in fact does nothing to stop the massive abortion funding that was written into the original Senate health care bill. Now, a leading pro-life group has released additional research showing the Obama plan actually increases abortion funding. In the manager’s amendment Senate Leader Harry Reid added to the Senate health care bill, HR 3590, a deeply hidden and unnoticed provision allowed $7 billion in funding for Community Health Centers (Abortion Clinics) buried deep in Section 10503 of the 383-page amendment. Pro-life groups have already condemned the provision because the money could be funneled to abortion businesses to pay for abortions and will not be subject to provisions like the Hyde Amendment that stops abortion funding. Now, officials at the National Right to Life Committee say Obama actually proposes to increase the funds that would be available to directly subsidize abortion procedures (through Community Health Centers) in spite of his worthless Executive order stopping funding, which he wrote to get Representative Stupak’s acquiescence. This is Obamacare’s way of sliding further murderous acts against the unborn and that will legalize the subsidizing of private health insurance that covers abortion. Even with all the smoke and mirrors and “Changes” that were made to the bill, the final legislation that was signed will allow direct federal funding of abortion on demand through Community Health Centers and will institute federal subsidies for private health plans that cover abortion on demand (including some federally administered plans), which will authorize federal mandates that will require even non-subsidized private plans to cover abortion. The Obama plan also proposes increasing the $7 billion for community health centers to $11 billion without any restriction on the use of these federal funds to pay directly for abortions. Quickly after taking office in January of 2009, President Barack Obama overturned the Mexico City Rule. The rule stated that the U.S. government could not provide funding for family
planning services to clinics or groups that offered abortion-related services overseas, even if funding for those activities came from non-government sources. It essentially barred recipients of U.S. foreign aid from promoting abortion as a method of family planning. If organizations received government funding, they had to agree as a condition of their receipt of federal funds that such organizations would neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations. The rule was originally put in place by President Ronald Reagan and was overturned by President Bill Clinton until President George W. Bush reinstated it. Whereas President Obama seeks to force the US Government’s will onto every front of American society as he can, he overturned the Mexico City Rule stating, "We are reminded that this decision not only protects women's health and reproductive freedom but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman's right to choose." It is clear that Obama will use the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to further the evil and murderous act of Abortion. VII. President Obama intends to find a way to make Same-Sex Marriage the law of the land.
On August, 17, 2008, Then Senator Barack Obama sat down with Senator John McCain and Pastor Rick warren for a presidential debate. The debate was centered on moral issues and when issue of Same-Sex Marriage arose, Senator Obama sat in the church and lied straight into the faces of the American people when he said that he would not support same-sex marriage and that he believed that marriage was between a man and a woman. Shortly after he took the presidential oath of office, his new White House website came online and it became immediately clear that the gay activists of America had a new and strong ally in the Oval Office. He made it clear that he intended to support the movement and to teach our kids in school that being gay was normal at as early an age as kindergarten. He appointed Kevin Jennings to be his new school Czar and began a march toward eventually announcing his full support of same-sex marriage on May 9, 2012. It is still unclear how he plans to accomplish his goal of making same-sex marriage the national norm, but we know that this is his goal and that he will regard another four years in the White House as a mandate for his continued Total transformation of the United States of America. It is easy to see that the first four years as president of this dear nation has taken us from a nation that was fiscally responsible and morally accurate to a nation of people ready for handouts and free of a moral conscience to keep the nation on a road of sexual and moral integrity. It is only logical to imagine what another four years will turn the nation into. I can say that as far as I can predict, if Barack Hussein Obama is reelected, the will be the last president of the United States, for another, far less free, far more sinister nation will be woven around the yoke of freedom on which this nation was found so tightly that there will remain nary a semblance of the nation that was founded by Washington, Adams and Jefferson and preserved by Lincoln, Kennedy and Reagan. This is but a slight peek into the
future image of a nation that shall be shattered, broken and ruined, should Barack Hussein Obama be reelected. It does remain a fact, nevertheless that the people shall get what they vote for; a nation on the road to liberty and financial and moral sanity or a nation so far changed and rotted from the inside out that she will be unsustainable. It is clear and sure that we will get what we vote for and end up with what we deserve. Author Steven Clark Bradley
