On August 1, an essay in The Daily Press, a Tribune Company Newspaper, offered the idea that irrespective of  who wins the November election, America will continue to be the exceptional nation she has long been -- so long as we maintain our founding principles. This concept has long been the reality of America. No more. The author ignores who President Obama really is and what his goals are. It continues to baffle me that so many people ignore reality and are likely to support Obama irrespective of his performance and his goals.

In the past, I would have endorsed Charles T. Joyner's op-ed, 1 August, “The World Won't End If Your Guy Doesn't Win.” He concludes, “as long as we uphold our founding principles and celebrate our “exceptionalism” we will remain the richest and strongest nation of Earth.” Historically, we could rely on this premise. Not now! Barack Obama is not a traditional American president.

He's proven his intentions to transform America. He doesn't endorse American “exceptionalism.” He's polarized Americans deliberately, to build voter blocs – for power. Many of his radical appointees are steeped in collectivism – Marxism. He and his AG have ignored the constitution, including the separation of powers, and abrogated laws at will. His every move suggests his views are statist.

Obama leads a new low of economic expansion that appears permanent with reduced GDP growth and job creation. No president creates jobs. Rather, he/she leads in establishing policies that encourage private capital formation and economic expansion. Obama's policies are antithetical to growth. His attack on coal and oil epitomizes destructive policy.

Oil and coal underpin the economy. To attack these is not unlike destroying the foundation of one's house and expecting the structure to stand. This is but one of many policies that destroy the American way. After 4 years, such destructive policies must be deliberate. There's more!

With re-election of Obama, traditional America will be no more. Romney will not be ideal, but he will be pro-American.

Is very important to find out who Obama is, but no every American is well informed. I read this interesting facts about Obama called: Obama LAUNDRY LIST OF LIES. Also I checked this website:

The movie: Obama's America 2016, this movie is a must to watch for every American that cares about the future of the next generations. I been trying to find the theatres that are showing it, but all Regal Cinemas are not. This shows that we are losing our Free of Speech with other rights granted but the American Constitution.

About 2016: Obama's America;
2016 Obama's America takes audiences on a gripping visual journey into the heart of the world's most powerful office to reveal the struggle of whether one man's past will redefine America over the next four years. The film examines the question, "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?
