Reflection of delusion--president's reelection announcement
The man who occupies the Oval Office officially launched his reelection campaign on Monday. It was done so with a video using various ethnic people talking about trust and change and wanting their man to finish what he has started. In announcing the video, the president sent an email to supporters. In it he wrote, "We've always known that lasting change wouldn't come quickly or easily. It never does. But as my administration and folks across the country fight to protect the progress we've made-and make more-we also need to begin mobilizing for 2012, long before the time comes for me to begin campaigning in earnest."
Let's take a look at how that change is working out. The government has expanded at unprecedented levels--taking over the home mortgage and auto industries with taxpayer funding. In that, the national debt has ballooned to record levels--some $14.27 trillion--or $128,446 per taxpayer, over $44,000 for every man, woman and child in America. Interest on the debt is $675,882 per family. In January 2009, gasoline prices stood at $1.84 per gallon. Today, prices have ascended over 100%, and continue to rise. Food prices have risen at the fastest pace since 1974. Home ownership is at its lowest level since 1998. Unemployment continues around 9%. For the first time in history, the president defends homosexuality over marriage.
Under the current White House, America's traditional allies have been sidelined as relationships with Islamic nations, terrorists and supporters of terrorists have been curried. The United States has supported, and reportedly actively participated in destabilizing the Middle East to the favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. The US has entered a war in Libya that supports takeover by terrorists. Israel has been pressured relentlessly to give up land to the terrorists, and has been threatened with a lack of military support for not doing so. Muslims with questionable backgrounds have been appointed to high places in the Pentagon and at Homeland Security.
The very basis of his reelection campaign is to "fight to protect the progress we've made--and make more." One would have to be totally delusional to accept this as accomplishment. But there is one thing more than any other that disqualifies this man as fit for office. It is his statement on March 27, 2004 to Chicago Sun Times columnist Cathleen Falsani about his faith: "I am a Christian...I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people." In John 14:6, Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me." The president has denied the deity of Christ. His presidency is a reflection of it.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
