"We are five days from fundamentally transforming the United States of America," Obama said. "If you'll stand with me and fight beside me and cast your vote for me, we will not only win Missouri, we will win this general election."
You asked for it, and now you have it, the transformation of your once great Republic into a country where the State is the all powerful force that controls almost every aspect of your life from cradle to grave. In fact with their new healthcare plan they'll even hasten your entry into your grave by denying you care if they deem you not worthy of it because of your age and your lack of usefulness to the collective. For the youth of the country they are now stopping the private government backed college loans in favor of government only loans that do not need to be paid back if you "choose" to serve the government for ten years. So now instead of starting your career in the private sector where all the wealth is created, they want you to serve the government, the very government that is sucking the private sector dry of its wealth. I heard Obama talk about how he wanted to fundamentally (relating to or affecting the underlying principles or structure of something) transform (to change something completely) America during the campaign, but I never saved any video of it. Now that Glenn Beck has discovered this video we can look back and see that Obama is only doing what he promised to do, which is to fundamentally change America. How can you criticize a politician for doing what he said he would do if elected? But I would ask you what is so fundamentally wrong with America that we need to change its underlying principles, the very principles that made us the greatest country in the history of the world. Is this the change that American's voted for in 2008? Do we really want to fundamentally change our great nation? Are the founding principles now obsolete? Jbranstetter04
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.
