Grandma said That Will Never Happen in America

My grandmother is upset that her great-grandchildren will never know the America she grew up in.

Grandma's Wisdom

Grandma's Wisdom

My 89 year old grandmother’s wisdom has shown up once again in my in-box. She used to say, “That will never happen in America”, and I’m not sure where she gets this stuff. This time, she is astounded of what our country has become and how she cannot believe what has occurred since the Obama Administration took over the oval office. She is concerned for her children and grandchildren and is upset that her great-grandchildren will never know the America she grew up in.

What would you say if I gave you 11 reasons why the elections in 2010 will be the most important in the history of the United States?

1. What if I had told you in October 2008, before the last presidential election, that before Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office, the federal government would be in control of both the mortgage and the banking industries? That 19 of America’s largest banks would be forced to undergo stress tests by the federal government which would determine if they were insufficiently capitalized, so they must be supervised by the government?

Would you have said, “C‚Äômon, that will never happen in America.”

2. What if I had told you that within Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office the federal government would be the largest shareholder in the US Big-Three automakers: GM, and Chrysler? That the government would kick out the CEO’s of these companies and appoint hand-picked executives with zero experience in the auto industry and that executive compensation would be determined, not by a Board of Directors, but by the government?

Would you have said, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

3. What if I had told you that Barack Obama would appoint 21 Czars, without congressional approval, accountable only to him, not to the voters, who would have control over a wide range of US policy decisions. That there would be a Stimulus Accountability Czar, an Urban Czar, a Compensation Czar, an Iran Czar, an Auto Industry Czar, a Cyber Security Czar, an Energy Czar, a Bank Bailout Czar, and more than a dozen other government bureaucrats with unchecked regulatory powers over US domestic and foreign policy.

Would you have said, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

4. What if I had told you that the federal deficit would be $915 billion in the first six months of the Obama presidency – with a projected annual deficit of $1.75 trillion – triple the $454.8 billion in 2008, for which the previous administration was highly criticized by Obama and his fellow Democrats. That congress would pass Obama’s $3.53 trillion federal budget for fiscal 2010, that the projected deficit over the next ten years would be greater than $10 trillion.

Would you have said, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

5. What if I had told you that the Obama Justice Department would order FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high-value detainees captured on the battlefield and held at US military detention facilities in Afghanistan . That Obama would order the closing of the Guantanamo detention facility with no plan for the disposition of the 200-plus individuals held there. Several of the suspected terrorists at Guantanamo would be sent to live in freedom in Bermuda at the expense of the US government and that our returning US veterans would be labeled terrorists and put on a watch list.

Would you have said, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

6. What if I had told you that the federal government would seek powers to seize key companies whose failures could jeopardize the financial system. That a new regulatory agency would be proposed by Obama to control loans, credit cards, mortgage-backed securities, and other financial products offered to the public.

Would you have said, “C’mon, that will never happen in America !!”

7. What if I had told you that Obama would travel to the Middle East, bow before the Saudi king, and repeatedly apologize for America’s past actions. That he would travel to Latin America where he would warmly greet Venezuela ‘s strongman Hugo Chavez and sit passively in the audience while Nicaraguan Marxist thug Daniel Ortega charged America with terrorist aggression in Central America . Would you have said, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

8. Okay, now what if I were to tell you that Obama wants to dismantle conservative talk radio through the imposition of a new “Fairness Doctrine.” That he wants to curtail the First Amendment rights of those who may disagree with his policies via internet blogs, cable news networks, or advocacy ads. That most major network television and most newspapers will only sing his phrases like state-run media in communist countries?

Would you say, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

9. What if I were to tell you that the Obama Justice Department is doing everything it can to limit your Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. That the federal government wants to reinstate the so-called assault weapons ban which would prohibit the sale of any type of firearm that doesn’t require the shooter to pull the trigger every time a round is fired. That Obama’s Attorney General wants to eliminate the sale of virtually all handguns and ammunition, which most citizens choose for self-defense.

Would you say, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

10. What if I were to tell you that the Obama plan is to eliminate states rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment and give the federal government sweeping new powers over policies currently under the province of local and state governments and voted on by the people. That Obama plans to control the schools, energy production, the environment, health care, and the wealth of every US citizen. Would you say, “C’mon, that will never happen in America!”

11. What if I were to tell you that the president, the courts, and the federal government have ignored the US Constitution and have seized powers which the founders of our country fought to restrict and that our last presidential election may have been our last truly free election for some time to come.

I know, I know what you will say. “That will never happen in America!”

If we don’t do everything in our power to stop this madness in 2010, may God have mercy on our worthless souls.

    What if I were to tell you that we worthless souls have no clue whether all of the above is good or bad? Would you say: “C'mon that will never happen in America?

    If this doesn't wake you up, nothing will. We are in big trouble in this country and I'm afraid it is only going to get worse. Once the greatest country on the face of the earth is falling as many third world countries have fallen in the past. Wake Up America!!

    To blame the Obama presidency for what has been spent in the first 100 days of his administration is ludicrous. This problem has been building for years. The problem lies within the government policies, which are determined by Congress and the president.
    As long as Congress willingly exchanges money for influence, American policy will favor those speial interests over public interests. Political campaigns are run with that money. As long as our elections are run by special interests, we will have no meaningful reform, and we will not be able to address our national problems: affordable healthcare, energy, the environment, public education, and so on.
    As long as partisans like this article writer distort the truth to discredit their current president, rather than focusing on our real problems, and how we got to this point, America's future will continue to be compromised.

    This is sickening political BS sighting one of our politicians for the work of all of them. Political hack journalism. Americans have been stupid enough to accept the crap from the prior administrations who are all directly responsible for the horror we now permanently face. This President is no better or worse. The real problem is the corporate ownership of the political parties. The parties only represent paid for interests. Why not use you editor's voice to get people to get rid of them all. Strenghten a 3rd party and kick some Democrat and Republican asses?
