Barack Obama is on a path toward a legacy that will firmly cement his place in American history as the great concessionist. Obama is unique among American Presidents for his willingness to concede any prior strength or sense of greatness that America held in the world for the 232 years prior to his ascendancy,  to the Olympian heights he has attained as President of the United States.

The holder of the  office of the President of the Unites States has been referred to for decades as the leader of the free world or as often as the most powerful person in the world. One must take pause today and begin to question whether or not these references, hold overs from the cold war that raged through may decades of the twentieth century, are indeed still applicable under the reign of Obama. The President appears to be doing everything he can to diminish the power of the office through his repetitive conciliatory rhetoric which was most recently displayed at the United Nations this past week and the G-20 summit.

Barack Obama is wasting little time in melding his revisionist rhetoric with his progressive agenda. If one is to believe this President then one must accept that until the rise of Obama that America was an evil super power that failed to allow for the concerns of the greater good in the world as it steadfastly clung to its out dated ambitions on the world stage. According to President Barack Obama no nation on earth should be allowed to dominate another. All the nations of the world should align and work toward the greater good of man kind.

One could question the naivete of this President as he makes such impotent and utopian comments but the reality is that Obama’s conciliatory remarks are a direct embodiment of his belief that America has for decades been an evil power that did more wrong than right in the world. It has been left to Barack Obama to concede the error of our ways and transform America’s role in the roll of nation’s to that of a weakened power who is now seeking its rightful place in the world as another equal among the nation’s of the world.

If one listens to Obama’s address at the United Nations he speaks of the change that America is experienced in the last eight months as he has single handedly transformed America from an evil power to a kind and gentle member of the world community. Obama is fond of referring to all that he is doing or already accomplished during his brief stint in office during his continual campaign addresses.

Barack Obama may not be the leader of the free world or the most powerful person on earth but one must concede that he may possess the greatest ego on the planet. An ego that if it remains unchecked will only further diminish the power of the office on the world stage even as it seeks to constrict individual choice at home.

The American media, beyond a single network must begin to question the progressive policies of this President and focus on the motivations behind the policies if America is to resume its role on the world stage as a nation that may not be liked by all the nations of the world but is at least respected and feared by its enemies.

Barack Obama has squandered his previously high favorability ratings in the polls by failing to recognize that despite the heavily biased liberal media, Americans as a whole tend toward the center rather than the left in matters that directly affect their quality of life. The progressive agenda that the Obama administration has embraced is not the change that most Americans who voted for Obama were expecing. Rather, they believed the candidate Obama who repeatedly vowed during the campaign to seek bipartisanship solutions to issues that had long run aground in the muck that is Washington.

Voters wanted to believe that this President would rise above the noise of special interests that currently chair the political symphony in Congress and the White House but that belief was quickly tested and obliterated when the President urged Congress to push through the American Recovery Act, the inaptly named stimulus package that proved to be filled with entitlements to special interest groups and an homage in particular to the unions that supported the Obama campaign and were in line for their pay off.

The American public has lost confidence in this President as they finally come to terms with the fact that Barack Obama though an excellent campaigner does not possess the credentials or experience to be President. His lack of executive experience combined with a limited legislative career in the Senate has resulted in an Administration in which the President has ceded governing to a Democrat controlled Congress and a group of czars that are neither elected officials nor do they require confirmation by Congress.

The latest Rasmussen Poll indicates that only 46% of likely voters approve of the performance of the President. Barack Obama has squandered political capital that was generated by the public’s desire for change from the Bush Administration. They were even willing to reset some American ideals for a leader that was willing to govern for the people not the special interests. This President is not this leader.

The Obama administration will limp through the remainder of this year and into 2010 where a disappointed electorate will vote for change that will result in a more balanced Congress that will more accurately reflect the will of an America that believes in free enterprise, freedom of speech and the entrepreneurial spirit.

Barack Obama and his administration are far too progressive for this nation, that is rooted in the principles of individualism. The willingness of President Obama to expand the scale and scope of government at the expense of individual choice and freedom has resulted in a back lash that will continue through his term and limit Obama to a single term. America will continue to turn toward the center for solutions and reject the Eurotopian dream of this inexperienced President.

In what has been one of the quickest swings in Presidential popularity in the history of poll taking, President Barak Obama according to the latest Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll is now viewed as favorable by only 47%  of likely voters. This has been one of the quickest and most extreme swings in Presidential popularity of a first year President in history.

Barack Obama who’s persona is increasingly being portrayed in the media as that of a silver tongued used car salesman must be shocked by the polling data and wonder why the wheels are coming off of the Barack the great redeemer wagon. The American electorate is clearly not responding positively to Obama’s consistent if vague message that we the government know what is best for you the American public.

The President, who has maintained a continual campaign since his inauguration has proved to be far more liberal then many voters perceived during the 2008 Presidential campaign. As a result of the President promoting the special interests of the environmental and union lobbies,  the public has moved increasingly to the center ,while the Obama administration and the liberal Democrat leadership of the Congress as portrayed by Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and Harry Reid, theSenate Majority Leader, have been outed for their commitment to a progressive agenda that would increase the concentration of power in the federal government while diminishing individual choices and freedoms.

Barack Obama who has been a subject of progressive doctrinaire throughout his academic and political life is a true believer in the progressive cause and has filled his administration with loyal subjects. The public, which of late has been demeaned and is always underestimated by liberal and progressive elitists that include Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have awakened in the past few months to an America that progressing along a path never foreseen by the founding fathers. It should be of no surprise to most in the political arena that a back lash would develop against the President’s policies given that over time the majority of Americans find comfort in the center as opposed to the extremes of the left or the right.

Obama the campaigner is wearing thin on Americans tolerance who have become impatient with Obama’s failure to embrace principles of governing that contribute to the safety and security of America. They ask who is governing the nation id the President is coosistently and aggressively campaigning. The answer of course id in the swpecial interests that funded and promoted Barack Obama as a vessel of hope and change.

The hope in America today is that Congress will listen to their constituency, the American public and not allow this President to continue to guide this nation away from the founding principles and values that have been the foundation for this great nation . The hope in America today is that Congress will not enact the progressive legislation that this President is promoting but that courage and common sense will prevail and America will survive this Administration’s attempts at concentrating power and creating a progressive or socialist state.

Americans must continue to stand up and speak out for their individual rights. They must ignore the platitudes of the left and do what is right. They must take ownership of this nation and not bequeath their future to a progressive and misguided few.

The Democrat Party, led by Barack Obama and his progressive administration, have attempted to muzzle dissent by Americans with respect to the debate over health care reform. The irony of the Democrats accusing the Republican party of attempting to stifle debate by organizing dissent at various Town Hall meetings hosted by members of Congress, should not be lost on a public that observed organized dissent led by Democrat party organizers through out eight years of the Bush administration.

The Democrat Party is the party of organized special interest groups. It is a party led by a community organizer who used his skills to rally the Democrat community behind his candidacy and ultimately elect him President. It defies belief, that this party would choose to  cast aspersions upon those who do not support the progressive agenda of Barack Obama.

As Democrat  members of Congress hear dissent over health care vocalised by their constituents the Obama administration has elected to divert the attention away from the issue of Obamacare and turn the debate to the dissenters. Today, Nancy Pelosi in a USA Today opinion column written with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer labeled dissent as un-American.

It is fitting that the progressive left is unable to fathom that the tactics they are famous for could be used against them. However, it is truly pathetic that Pelosi and Hoyer are unable to tolerate legitimate debate and concern over an agenda that is clearly changing the American dream to the American nightmare. Pelosi, the elitist simply can’t bear to believe that there are American who care to think and express dissent for no other reason than the fact that they disagree with a President and a Congress that are out of control.

Pelosi, in her attempt to stifle and misrepresent the Obamacare debate is un-American. Dissent is an  essential right in a Democracy. Liberals though true believers, do themselves a disservice when they narrow and divert the issue and become the progressive fascists of an Orwellian dream.

The liberal media converged to denigrate the Tea Party protests that sprung up across the nation and were held yesterday in over a thousand communities. The Fox network which is frequently bashed by its competitors and many liberal bloggers had extensive coverage of the protests which were organized independently across the country to allow people to give voice to the frustration and dissatisfaction that they are experiencing due to the expansive government Congress and the Obama Administration are enacting.

The protests which have gained ground over the past several weeks as an increasing number of Americans feel disenfranchised by a government that has elected to provide bail outs to banks, insurance and auto companies, while passing trillion dollar spending bills to promote a progressive fascist agenda that is intent upon limiting individual freedoms and accelerate the expansion of an intrusive government.

The liberal media elected to portray the Tea Party protests as examples of right wing extremism. Rather than provide objective reporting on the Tea Party the media with exception of Fox News downplayed the events with obvious liberal bias. The lines have been clearly drawn by the media and the progressive left. The progressive movement seeks to expand government entitlement programs while the philosophical underpinning of those who protest at events such as the Tea Parties  are seeking to maintain and renew  individual rights and liberties.

Choosing to ignore the Tea Party phenomena is a classic progressive tactic. Progressive fascists believe in their intellectual superiority and believe that by repeating their lies which are supported by the liberal media they will ultimately be perceived as truth. This tactic has been very effective as evidenced by the election of Barack Obama to the Office of the Presidency

As Americans express their dissatisfaction with a Congress and a President committed to expanding government and further limiting freedoms, one can only wonder if a tax strike is in the future for a people who are tired of having their wealth transferred to federal and state governments that they accuse of negligence.

Their was a very successful tax revolt on this continent by thirteen British colonies that resulted in the formation of a nation that formed around the principle that ” all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is in the pursuit of these rights that the federal government has proved to be most intrusive by executing a tax policy to offset any errors that the Creator may have committed.

The federal gowernment as it exists today is far removed in both theory and practice from the government envisioned by the founders of this nation. The federal government has become the most intrusive institution that the founders could have possibly  imagined. The founding fathers were as a general rule strong individualists, protective of state’s rights while cognizant of the potential danger to a people of a federal government, where power rests in the hands of a select few politicians and bureaucrats, as it does today.

They were leary of creating a command and control centralized authority where a political class would emerge that would extend the bureaucratic grip on the nation as opposed to a government that would serve at the behest of the people. We have allowed a beast to emerge in our governmental institutions. Perhaps it is the nature of man to cede individual power to others, as we have done with Congress and the current President.

Barack Obama is not a great leader. He has proved to be a superb reader with a practiced delivery, that when presented to a willing public, has been able to satisfy the need for a majority of Americans to fulfill a need to be led. We have transferred such power to the Office of the President that we forget the holder of that office, in this case, is a well trained, astute politician with out executive experience, that arrived in office through a perfect storm of conditions, that limited opposition and created an aberrative election and a temporal elation for many of the electorate, that will in time fade as people become familiar with his progressive agenda. 

As millions of Americans become disenfranchised by a President and a Congress that choose to serve and expand a bureaucracy, as opposed to serving a nation, they will search for venues or opportunities to protest the actions of this Congress and the policies of Barack Obama.

 Today in America we are in the grip of progressives fascists, who will weaken America’s place in the current world order as they seek to lay the foundation for an America in which homogeneity is the order of the day. An America where personal sacrifice for the State is encouraged while individual entrepreneurial pursuits are discouraged. An America where dissent is viewed as extremist and a threat to the State.

In this America, voters must find venues for protest that are impactful and strike where the government is most vulnerable. The people must learn to lead. Creating a political class has only served to propagate a bastion of special interests where the nation is held hostage by the President and Congress. Where the traditional main stream media is focused on humanizing the President by reporting about the new dog in the White House . Where we as a people are to accept whatever tax increases or regulations are imposed on us and accept it without question because the political class deems it so.

It is time for those who are disenfranchised by these policies to align with platforms that transform America from another nation lost to progressive fascism to the America  that was envisioned by those who participated in that first tax revolt  in Boston Harbor. National Strikes and other forms of  non violent protest have been effective in many nations. It is time for moderates and conservatives to resort to the same practices that have proved to be effective for the progressive left.

 All Americans have a voice and it is our obligation to raise them when we perceive injustice and inequality in our society such as that which is being perpetrated upon us by a Congress and an Executive branch that are working aggressively to create an America where our rights, freedoms and choices to exercise those rights and freedoms will be increasingly limited.

Americans, outraged by a seemingly endless spiral of expansive and intrusive government protested at “tea parties” across America today. A populist groundswell against federal and state governments that lack accountability, actual and proposed tax increases and dissatisfaction with the two dominant political parties appear to be themes which have rallied protesters and brought them together in over 700 locations.

Amidst the protests today, President Barack Obama elected to speak to his desire for a fair tax code by increasing taxes on the 5% of the population that currently pay 60% of federal income taxes. The White House perspective on the tea parties was that they do not represent the beliefs or interests of most Americans.

Populist movements have arisen through out the history of the nation. The most successful populist uprising in this nation was the uprising that over time gave birth to the nation, resulting in the Declaration of Independence and the transformation of thirteen British colonies into the United States of America. Since the formation of this Republic populist movements have arisen over perceived injustices. The root cause of these injustices are generally related to economics. The bail outs of banks, insurance companies and the auto industry combined with a severe down turn in the economy and rising unemployment have all contributed to the frustrations that many Americans are feeling. The Tea Parties provide an outlet for many people to vent those frustrations.

The election of  Barack Obama, was an example of the Democrat Party using a traditional populist platform by incenting class war through judicious claims of extreme fiscal abuse by Wall Street and the wealthy. President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have continued that tactic following the Obama inauguration to rationalize the largest expansion of government in America’s history.

The recent passage of the $787 Billion stimulus bill and the 2010 budget have proved to be the tipping point for many Americans who feel disenfranchised by a government that appears to have turned its back on traditional American values and principles including the free enterprise system.

The Tea Parties that are occurring around the nation provide a platform for people to express their outrage with the status quo in Washington and perhaps spark a movement that will gain enough ground that the Obama administration will pause to listen.

We do not know if a third party movement will evolve from these activities. Third party movements in America are shortlived. The Republican Party has been weakened over the past eight years and the Democrats will no doubt pay a price for the damage they are inflicting upon this Republic. We do recognize that communications technology enables voices to be heard today beyond the range of previous decades and that may indeed be enough to awaken this nation from its current stupor.
