Today was surely a historic day for America. We swore in our first African-American into the highest office in our country. While this is truly a historic event, it overshadows and overwhelms the fact that the man being sworn in has extremely liberal, border-line socialist, political positions that he will surely put into place with the Democratically-controlled Congress.
So this is how I feel: One day of Obama as President is much more than enough in my opinion.
Combine the Obama Administration with the Democratically-controlled Congress and we have a recipe for disaster.
One thing is certain: Obama sure can give one heck of a speech. While it can be inspiring to listen to a well-crafted speech of a man who is surely a great leader, it does not change the fact that his policies are going to lead the nation down the wrong path. By wrong I mean policies that are not going to solve the economic depression we are involved in, not going to cause prosperity for future generations (in fact, future generations have a huge debt to pay through government's irresponsible bailouts), and will not promote freedom and liberty.
Pelosi runs a tight shift, as Michelle Bachmann said recently on Glenn Beck. They will push bailouts, environmental policies that place control not freedom on the American public, and higher taxes through Congress. Obama will rubber-stamp these laws, and we surely will not find our way out of this depression that is plaguing the United States. FDR's policies did not work, neither will Obama's.
