The unprecedented increase in unemployment has no doubt effected every U.S. citizen in one way shape or form. If you have not been laid off, then chances are you are close to someone who has been. You probably even have one or more within your family that has been let go in the past year. It touches the  heart to hear of loved ones losing so much and then struggling month after month to find a way to replace the lost income. But who has been hurt the most throughout this financial recession? Believe it or not, it is the majority of those who voted Barack Obama into the Presidency, it is the Democrats and Independents.

Back in January of this year, when the unemployment rate was at 7.6%, many blamed President Bush for the unemployment disaster. And while he did play his own part in allowing the first stimulus package and the buy out of many banks, it was made dramatically worse by President Obama. Obama did not allow the economy to simply heal on its own, he pushed to further the national debt, crippling the U.S. dollar, and all the while convincing many Americans that it was the proper course of action to stimulate the economy.

President Obama and the mainstream media has since then lied numerous times telling the public the economy is growing, that unemployment rates are improving, and that we are going in the “right” direction. This could not be further than from the truth. And yet, his loyal followers, who are taking the brunt of the economic crisis, still listen and believe with unemployment now at a staggering 10.2%.

Why is it that those who are suffering the most from this situation continue unfailing support of the Obama administration? Is it that so many have grown so dependent on the government that they are still encouraged by the empty promises of Obama? Perhaps it’s the vainess of sticking beside one’s own race without question? Or maybe it is like rooting for your favorite football team, no matter what you will go with your political party for better or for worse. Many Americans regardless of social standing do not like to admit when they have made a mistake. What ever the case is, I think it can be all of the above. Sadly, according to Rasmussen Reports it is Obama’s supporters, the Democrats and the minority population, that are being hit the hardest by unemployment.

The data collected by the Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey states:

“Data from Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveys shows that 15.0% of Democrats in the workforce are currently unemployed and looking for a job. Among adults not affiliated with either major party, that number is 15.6% while just 9.9% of Republicans are in the same situation.”

How do I know who supported Obama the most? As reported by BBC News on exit polls in their article Who Voted For Obama, he had the most support from first time voters, young voters, Democrats, and minority groups. And ironically, 62% of those who voted for Barack Obama cited that the economy was their main factor. Since his appointment to office, it has only worsened and regressed at a rate that no one ever thought possible.

What has our President that promised so much hope and change done to improve our economic woes? Why, he has made them far more and far worse. If you were in deep financial debt would you try to get out by spending more money? No, of course not. You would hunker down and take out the frivolous things in your life to make up the difference while paying back what you owe little by little. Yet, this administration instead took it upon themselves to spend not only our money, but our children and our grandchildren’s money, in the hopes of stimulating an economy that had already been overspent.

Those who were in financial trouble would have been better off to slip into bankruptcy and to lose a few jobs rather than to become slaves to the federal government who bought out their stocks to “save” them. No company is too big to fail. Instead, the deeds of the Obama administration has bankrupted the entire nation and left us in debt to other countries. In the meantime, those who provide the unshaken support of our President suffer the hardest in false hope that he will somehow rescue them by paying their gas and mortgage. Is the Democrat party so hungry for power that they are willing to make more people dependent on the government in supplying their every need like with this healthcare bill, giving them the power over our very health and well-being? It will spiral America into more economic hardship and leave us at the mercy of the country with the greatest stock in America (a.k.a. China). In a once Republic nation that is now resembling a socialist/communist country, how ironic that we look to China for support at this time. (Why else did you think Obama is spending so much time over there?)

Taxpayers stormed Washington, D.C. yesterday in record numbers. Fed up with overspending, and fear of the government taking over health care, protesters came in from all around the country to let political leaders in Washington know that they simply had enough. The number of supporters that came range from the thousands, ten thousand, to 2 million as reported by the London Daily Mail. What ever the number is you can surely see by the over view pictures (courtesy of World Net Daily) that this was no small crowd.

Miraculously, the White House stated that they were unaware of the rally, and that President was out of town in Minneapolis, Minnesota to promote his health care plans.  Isn’t that interesting? We all know that he knew that there was going to be a rally, but like always he decided to avoid listening to the other side. I must say that out of all my years of being interested in politics I have never seen such a partisan president as I have seen in President Obama.  Both President Bush and President Clinton always showed signs of not only listening to the other side, but even compromising when need. Obama stated that his door is always open, but he has not had a meeting with political leaders of the Republican Party since April and has avoided requests to do so since then. Simple put, the Democrats have basically shut the door to the Republicans on this and many other issues.

This attitude that the Democrats are displaying, will no doubt hurt them in the next coming elections in 2010. Hopefully, Republicans can undo most of the damage that the liberals are doing to our great nation.

If you were not aware of what our country is doing to our economy this should give you a pretty good idea. We have in the past months been told by several nations to slow our spending, stop the stimulus money, stop the unnecessary programs, and other advice since the stimulus packages by President Bush and President Obama have been passed. The Obama administration is not taking heed to any advice though and just keeps on spending, keeps suggesting more government controlled programs that we don’t want and they can’t afford.

So, what do we get in return? The United Nations wanting to replace the US dollar (which is the current world’s reserve currency) and replace it with a new global currency. Is this good for the US, no, of course not. This could ultimately send us into an economic collapse in which we may never recover. But can you really blame them? Look at how carelessly Obama and the two Houses have been just freely spending money like it will never run out in order to fund the socialistic agenda. I saw a quote by Margaret Thatcher that reminds me of this, it said “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” Obviously, from this article in the Telegraph, we can see that our global financiers are not going to be doing so much longer.

UPDATE 09/14/09:

Report from the International Monetary Fund stated, “…the international supply of two key reserve assets—gold and the U.S. dollar—proved inadequate for supporting the expansion of world trade and financial development that was taking place.”

World Net Daily’s Jerome Corsi comments, “If the plan succeeds, the United Nations would effectively end up replacing the United States as the issuer of the one-world international currency used as the standard of foreign exchange to settle international trade transactions,” Corsi wrote. “The move would obviate the need for any nation state in the future to be the arbiter of world trade, marking yet another blow to national sovereignty on the path to one-world government.”

I am proud of the response we have received in the recent weeks from the government. We, those of a conservative mind set, have been speaking out and making it well known what we will and will not stand for recently. And it seems to have had some effect. At least on the topics of Van Jones’ resignation and the presidential school speech. Having visited the www.ed.gov website frequently in the past weeks I had noticed the wording of the activities, questions, and the speech itself changed numerous times. This had caused great concern among conservative parents that there maybe indoctrination included in the speech given to the school children by our President. After all, with the brief but controversial past of President Obama and his administration it is our right to question what would possibly be next.

Of course, there had to be a tidbit about the environment in there as all public education does, as Obama said, “You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment.” And naturally to keep it politically correct, we have to throw in some statements about discrimination and fairness. But all in all, the revised and finished product was one in which I do not have a problem. In fact, I have a favorite quote from the speech. It is, “if you quit on school — you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.”

I also liked how he ended it with “God bless you. God bless America.” We all know that if a republican president had said those words the liberals would be all over it screaming “separation between church and state.” But that wouldn’t be good for supporting their choice in presidency, so we won’t be hearing any of that this time. Unlike when President George H.W. Bush gave his school speech and the democrats went crazy with investigations, hearings, accusations, and being denounced by the National Education Association itself.  Yes, we have heard, “You won’t be saying this if it was a republican president.” No, probably not so much, but you (the left) would. Check out this article from The Washington Examiner, When Bush Spoke To Students, Democrats investigated, held hearings, it explains the great lengths the opposition went to denounce President George H.W. Bush’s very similar speech.

I think we can take this two ways. One, is what I mentioned earlier, a victory in having shaped the change in what could have quite possibly been indoctrination (due to the many changes to the curriculum and speech I think it may have been). The second, is to watch for possible future speeches to the youth that may have indoctrination. We can’t let our guard down if there is a second or third speech. We must always be informed as to what is being presented to our children.
