Obama creates dependency, thwarts freedom

Bob Lonsberry, a talk radio personality says, “The Democrats are right, there are two Americas; the America that works and the America that doesn’t and the America that contributes and the America that doesn’t.”

He goes to make some very important points about what’s happening to our country under the present administration.

When referring to the Democrats and Obama he says, “It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office; about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.”

With regard to income inequality he states, “The Democrats have not empowered their followers; they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victimhood and anger instead of ability and hope.”

Think about what Obama has been doing and the goals he has set for our nation. Every action, every effort he has made since he was elected was directed toward one goal, to shift control of the people from private individual decisions and actions to control by the government. And he has enlisted the help of Harry Reid and the Senate to help him attain these goals.

If and when he can’t get cooperation and action by the congress, he manages to skirt legislation and enact it by executive order.

Lonsberry says, “It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away; it’s the freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail.”

It would behoove all of us to pay attention to what’s happening before we allow Obama to turn our whole country into a Detroit.
