This is exactly what the Obama regime and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have done to the United States over the last 8 years. Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have purposefully undermined the principles and values upon which the United States was founded because they strongly disagree with those principles and values.
Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have undermined the military power, world leadership, and financial foundation of the United States. Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have undermined these aspects of the United States because they believe the United States is the evilest of all imperialist nations.
Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have undermined the very essence of the social fabric of the United States. They have done this because, in their quest to fundamentally transform the United States from a free and independent people and state to an imaginary socially just and classless society, the old society must be destroyed so the new society can be built according to Marx.
When the founders began the United States, and formed our government, these founders fully understood that the government they were forming was the single biggest threat to the freedom they had just won. In order to protect that freedom for themselves and all future Americans, the founders established a nation based on the principles and values of; rule of law, limited government, divided government, and rule by the people.
These principles and values on which our nation was founded are diametrically opposed to the values of Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). It is critical for Obama’s group to have arbitrary law so they can change the law as they wish. Obama said that he had the right to impose law with his pen and phone if congress did not do what he wanted. Obama has arbitrarily written law, changed law, abolished law, and applied the same law differently to different individuals. This is the essence of arbitrary law.
Obama and his comrades believe in big and controlling government; government that is the sovereign and not the servant. Under Obama and his comrades’, government has grown by assuming unconstitutional roles and duties. Under Obama and his comrades’, power has been concentrated in the executive and judicial branches and the role of the legislative branch has been greatly diminished. Under Obama and his comrades’, the government has assumed the role of sovereign and as sovereign demands that the people serve the wishes and the demands of those in government.
Obama and his comrades’ have diminished our military. We now have the weakest military we have had since the Second World War. Our military has become a testing ground for social change. The military has had its officer corps purged. The morale of the military is at a historical low. The Veterans Administration is a social club that takes no responsibility for the non-performance of its primary function, which is to provide health care for our veterans.
Obama and his comrades’ have enabled and strengthened our enemies. Because of the lack of leadership by Obama, the Russians are now the dominant force in the Middle East. Obama and the State Department have undermined our relations with our strongest ally in the Middle East: Israel. Obama and the State Department created the vacuum for ISIS to form and grow. Obama and the State Department enabled the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim Terrorist organizations to grow and expand in places like Egypt and Libya.
Obama and the State Department strengthened and emboldened Iran by discontinuing sanctions at a very critical time, provided a path for Iran to become a nuclear power, and paid ransom and other money to Iran enabling them to continue to assist Islamic terrorists in their fight against Israel and the West.
Obama and his comrades’ have undermined the social fabric of the United States. Obama, Holder, and Lynch have increased tensions between all races and all classes. The Obama regime has created an atmosphere that fosters hatred of law enforcement. The Obama regime has created an atmosphere that encourages rioting, attacks on police, and young black people to commit group crimes against stores, malls, and white individuals. The Obama Department of Justice has now become a political arm of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and has as its main goal the fostering of hatred between races.
The Obama regime has further undermined the social fabric and stability of the United States by irresponsibly doubling our national debt in eight years to $20 trillion dollars. The Obama regime has put the United States in the same category of many third world countries whose national debt exceeds their national output. The historical consequences of this type of financial irresponsibility is massive inflation that destroys the wealth of the nation and individuals. Social chaos and massive crime is the typical result.
These have been the accomplishments of the Obama years. If you listened to Obama’s claims of success the other evening, these were those claims. Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) truly do view these as successes. It is the goal of Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to fundamentally transform the United States. They have been successful in their quest. Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have undermined the greatness and freedom of the United States; a nation that was built upon the principles of rule of law, limited government, divided government, and rule by the people.
