Mr. Hope and Change wants to create a nation humbled; humiliated, casting-aside capitalism and individual freedoms for one where “we the people” are government controlled. This would be a system that genuflects mediocrity, steals personal aspiration and opportunity, and punishes those who strive to succeed.

A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase.
The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump.
Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during the same 32 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000. Staggering “hope and change” isn't it?

American citizens living in poverty have risen 9.5% from 39,800,000 to 43,600,000, and the number of unemployed has jumped almost 25% from 11,616,000 to 14,485,000 as of August 31, 2011.
The number of unemployed blacks has risen from 12.6% at the end of George Bush's term to 15.8% today, a 25.4% increase, and finally, our national debt is up 34.4% from 10.627 trillion to 14,278 trillion *

Keep these figures in mind as we recount the number of “firsts” for this presidency:

First President to refuse to show a valid birth certificate.
First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States .
First President to violate the War Powers Act.
First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico .
First President to defy a Federal Judges court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.
First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.
First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.
First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.
First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U..S., including those with criminal convictions.
First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.
First President to terminate Americas ability to put a man in space.
First President to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places.
First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.
First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.
First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly speak-out on the reasons for their rate increases.
First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state they are allowed to locate a factory.
First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (Az, WI, OH, IN)
First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
First President to appoint 45 Czars to replace elected officials in his office.
First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office.
First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.
First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
First President to coddle American enemies while alienating Americas allies.
First President to publicly bow to Americas enemies while refusing to salute the U.S. Flag.
First President to go on multiple global apology tours.
First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends, paid for by the taxpayer.
First President to refuse to wear the U.S. Flag lapel pin.
First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000.00 a year at taxpayer expense.
First President to repeat “the Holy Qur'an tells us,” and openly admit “the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.”
Remember that 32 months of Obama White House we the people have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our nation's entire history, as the Obama's plan their next extravagant vacation to the Indonesian Island nation of Bali .

Hope and change anyone? Pass this along if you love your country!

I never received a reply from Sen. Udall (I think that's how his name is spelled).  Do you know where he stands, or has he run from the issue as well?

I agree, Bennet hid from Colorado during the Healthcare debate.  The ATP even did a signed petition drive and delivered it to their office.  Most of this really fealt futile since he wasn't even around for the debate.  One of the only things that caught the attention of politicians and news media were the days that we performed opperation avalanche and buried the capital in mail, calls, and visits.  When the servers at the capital crashed and there was a line of thousands outside the capital to speak to their congressman we got some notice and recogniton to the debate.

Frederick, I recently wrote a letter to both of our state senators asking that they support the repealing of the healthcare law.  So far, only Bennett has responded.  I cited Constitutional reasons why this law should not stand.  His responses was diluted with typical liberal rhetoric:  "Our state needs it ... we have lots of poor families ... it would cost the country more to repeal it than to keep it."  

He also cited the CBO's calculations, which are not an accurate reflection of the true costs, as the CBO deliberately omits the costs of enforcing the law via the IRS and grossly underestimates the numbers to favor the law.  Bennett seems to believe that the CBO under this administration is not biased in anyway, kind of like the Attorney General isn't supposed to be biased.  We know how that's working out.

Nevertheless, Bennett was clearly not in a position to logically consider the facts (The Cato Institute is a great place to start with regard to the real costs of healthcare).  We should really concentrate on removing Senators and Congressmen who do not understand or uphold Constitutional principles and law.  Our legislators are the ones who have the real power to repeal this law.  President Obama does need to go, too.

I agree that we should pin-point Obama's record.  It seems that the evidence for grounds of impeachment is building.  We should also consider bringing more light to those Obama has appointed, as well.  Eric Holder has been a crucial player in attempting to erode our 2nd Amendment right.  He has also subverted the 10th Amendment by denying states such as Texas the right to determine by which means they will hold elections and verify eligibility.  There are also the numerous "czars" who were appointed in order to circumvent the legal process of law and policy making.  Additionally, we have Secretary of Defense who seems to think that Obama only needs to consult with international powers (UN) to determine if we should go to war.  This is a direct violation of the War Powers Act.  These are the things we need to focus on.

I welcome your thoughts on this.

I think that we could incorporate some of the Alinsky articles in pin-pointing the focus to President Obama and his record.  I also believe that Tom Tancredo's speech on the proceedings to impeach the President are right in target with that focus.  By taking one of the most offensive attacks to the liberties of the people on the sale of weapons to the Cartel to facilitate future Brady Laws.  We could also focus on the Heath Care Law if this is voted on by the Supreme Court this year.  The only way to get the President Impeached and Remove him from office legally is to demand that these issues are discussed in the media and on the highest of political scales.

You have done well to cite the above information.  

The methods President Obama has utilized in his attempts to lead this country have added to the general downward economic trend.  Prosperity is not built on redistribution, but on a principled work ethic.  Private property cannot rightfully be taken from one man and given to another deemed to be more worthy or needy.  Demanding that such measures be a part of America's benevolence is a contradiction to the very meaning of benevolence.  

Furthermore, when the government picks winners it is also picking losers, as we see in the bailouts.  This is not economic freedom, but manipulated markets under the coercive rule of a morally unauthorized government.

When I say morally unauthorized, I mean a government which does not adhere to the cornerstone of our nation -- the American Constitution.  

What we seem to have is a President who sits in the highest office of this land, intentionally violating the paths of legislation required by our Constitution.  He has belittled the spirit of freedom in his creation of czars in order to circumvent traditional legal paths.  He has upset the balance of powers by appointing judges who are not loyal to our Constitution, and who would rule on the side of new tolerance and secular humanism in complete opposition to everything this great nation was built on. He has with deliberate intent rebelled, ignored, and defied the oath of his office which requires that he uphold the law -- our Constitution.
