In a recent interview, Barack Obama made several concerning statements about his agenda that let us know exactly where he stands in relation to the views of the American people, and they likely mean trouble for the country.
While Obama has consistently governed out of line with American values, undermining the Constitution at nearly every pass, now he’s going to push his limits as president as far as he can for the remainder of his term to continue his massive expansion of government, according to TheBlaze. During an interview with the Huffington Post, a liberal media outlet that’s considered “friendly” grounds for Democrats, he said that even in the face of Republican opposition, he’ll advance his agenda “by hook or by crook,” which means we’re in for a rough ride.
“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said during the softball interview.
“By hook or by crook,” Obama added. “We’re going to make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”
As we’re all aware, Obama’s agenda is nothing more than a massive expansion of government into the lives of the people, despite the fact we don’t want it. In fact, democracy seems to be nothing more than a speedbump in the road for the advancement of his progresso-socialist agenda. In November we delivered a powerful message to him and the rest of his party by giving conservatives sweeping victories across Congress, yet he seems to have dug his heels in deeper and refuses to budge on any of his so-called “signature issues.”
Unfortunately, Obama’s stubbornness has been met with little resistance from the GOP, who has done next to nothing to stop his power grabs in the health, energy, and education sectors. They’ve also done little to stop Obama’s executive amnesty and barely made a peep when he had his FCC take over the Internet, but none of this should surprise anybody.
The GOP seems to be split down the middle with half of them wanting the small government we once had, which stays out of our private affairs and allows us to live as the free people our founders intended, while the other half is made up of the establishment, who holds the passwords to the GOP bank accounts and seemingly has the same big government goals as the progressive left, but uses social issues to reel in support.
As the Daily Caller perfectly explained:
“…the GOP leadership, plus a large chunk of legislators, most lobbyists and campaign donors, are reluctant to rally voters against Obama’s big-government agenda. Instead, they prefer to make deals that provide short-term economic benefits to business groups and to wealthy donors.”
With all of this in mind, it’s unlikely we’ll be able to look to the GOP to stop Obama’s ever-expanding power grabs from the private sector, since many of them appear to support government meddling in private affairs. After all, it’s far more profitable to pander to mega-corporations and lobbyists than it is to give the taxpayers what we want – small government and a return to our constitutional principles.
Hold onto your seats, folks, it looks like it’s going to be a long two years until we get the next president in office. Although, I will give Obama credit for one thing – he finally told the truth for once.
