Here we go with another presidential campaign and this time Obama is using the platitude forward — sounds nice but what does it mean? Forward to what?
In 2008, it was hope and change, and what were those nice sounding words supposed to mean? We now have millions hoping for work and the gas prices at the pump have changed by plus 100 percent.
A transparent, post-racial and post-partisan administration was promised. Those promises have to rank up there with the lies of the century.
We have the so-called czars being appointed, effectively bypassing congressional approval. We have a president who promised to work on gun control “under the radar” — as in behind your backs folks. The list could go on. This election is beyond politics; it is about whether we will keep the United States as it was founded or are we going down the tyrannical Marxist/Socialist paths that have never succeeded. Liberty or tyranny — it is the voters’ choice.
