Ordinary Americans come from the tradition that circumstance has mandated the United States to be the unilateral world superpower and the world's police officer. Barack Obama, who is more to the left than Jimmy Carter, comes from the leftist tradition that the world is better if it is a "multipolar world" where wonderful places like KGB-Putin Russia, Communist China, Islamist Iran, etc. would be able to keep the "big bad" United States in check.
It stands to reason that in order to realize Obama's multipolar dream, Obama and his leftist Democrats have to make the United States atrophy its military and economic might, which surprise, they keep doing.
After all the billions and billions of dollars in bailouts and stimulus that Obama and the Democrats spent, the national unemployment rate is no better. Obama and the Congressional Democrats have spent the United States Treasury into the ground by countless billions of dollars and they are failing to provide results in terms of the national unemployment rate.
Obama has castrated the United States SPACE PROGRAM. If anything, the space program should be given a blank check for research and development and education.
Obama is not upgrading our nukes but rather he is reducing their number. Obama is not getting the ball rolling about military action against Iran, anyone who thinks there's a chance Iran will disarm peacefully is a retard. If God forbid an Iranian nuke goes off in the United States because of a terrorist, it is likely that the anti-war liberals from the big cities the big economic centers on the east and west coasts of the USA will be among the first to be barbecued. Are you listening New Yorkers? Out of self preservation, individuals living in the big cities and economic centers of the USA should be amongst the most pro-war of all Americans.
No good will come out of the path Obama is taking the USA down.
