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 theU.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 ofAugust 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

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 theUnited States.

First President to violate the War Powers Act.

First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in theGulf 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 theU.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 terminateAmerica’s ability to put a man in space.

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 alienatingAmerica’s allies.

First President to publicly bow toAmericasenemies 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 theIndonesianIslandnation ofBali.

Hope and change anyone?

Cultural Subversion

In his book ‘The American Covenant,’ historian and author, Marshall Foster, recounts a historic meeting that took place in a loft above Pecks Restaurant, in Manhattan,NY, on September 12, 1905. Upton Sinclair, Jack London, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, J.G. Phelps Stokes, and Charles Darrow (all prominent men) were gathered for the specific purpose of instituting the overthrow of the Christian world-view in the United States of America.

These men were all disciples and proponents of the teachings of Karl Marx, the founder of Communism. Through a method called gradualism, which they learned from the Roman general, Quintus Fabius Maximums, they would slowly infiltrate Marxist ideas onto college campuses, “by promoting an intelligent interest in socialism among college men and women.”

By the mid-1930’s their organization, called the League for Industrial Democracy had managed to establish 125 chapters, on college and university campuses, and John Dewey, the founder of progressive education, was the vice president.

Because of the efforts of this small group of men, and their strategic infiltration of our colleges and universities, we have seen the Christian world-view which founded and shaped our nation replaced by a secular philosophy which can be traced directly to the teachings of Marx.

We can clearly see that the cultural shift away from the absolutes of Christianity began to occur in the 1930s; however it wasn’t until the 1960’s that the full scope of this revolution began to take shape. By the 1960’s, college campuses became the breeding grounds for Marxist Socialism, and open rebellion against the absolutes of biblical Christianity.

Proponents of this era called it a revolution against the establishment, but in all reality, it was no more than a social declaration of war against the God of the Bible, and His authority. You see, the Bible is a book of moral absolutes. These moral absolutes foster social order, and give equal value to all human beings who are made in the image of their Creator. These absolutes teach us that freedom is gained by the restraint of our sinful debased appetites, not their gratification. The idea of moral absolutes stands in direct opposition to the communist anarchist movement of free love, free thinking, and the whole so-called freedom mantra that became the cry of the this new generation.

Socialist ideology gave birth to groups like Students for a Democratic Society, the Black Panthers, and the Yippies (all proponents of Marxist ideology). Organizations like these became the cultural terrorists of the era. Jerry Ruben, founder of the Yippies, and author of the book Do It, (which the publisher called “the Communist Manifesto of the era.”), called for kids to leave their homes, burn down their schools, and build a new society upon the ashes of the old.

By the end of the sixties it was obvious that the biblical world-view had for the most part been replaced on campuses by the Marxist humanist ideals of moral relativism. From that time forward, every impressionable student that entered a college or university in theU.S.would be exposed to the influence of Marxist ideology. Is it any wonder that college campuses and universities have become some of the greatest disseminators of anti-American propaganda, and socialist propaganda? While many of these same universities claim to be centers of free speech, and free thinking, they are openly hostile toward Christianity.

By the seventies we began to see the full effects of this new post-Christian era.  Teen pregnancies, violent crime, abortion, divorce, rampant alcohol and drug abuse, and every other form of social decay skyrocketed.Americasoon found itself going from moral template for the world to follow, to the leader and propagator of the moral decadence of a culture totally out of control.

The late Francis Schaeffer in his book ‘The Great Evangelical Disaster’ put it quite concisely. “We live in a society today where all things are relative and the final value is whatever makes the individual or society “happy” or feel good at the moment. Nothing is fixed; there are no final standards; only what makes one “happy” is dominant… The Bible is bent to the culture instead of the Bible judging our society and culture.”

Our founding fathers established this nation upon the ideals of biblical freedom. They believed that freedom brought with it the responsibility of people to govern themselves. They realized that no amount of law would ever be able to adequately restrain a society where the individual would not allow the moral absolutes of the Bible to control them. While Americahas not been perfect in our holding to these principles, we should ask ourselves, are we better off since abandoning them altogether?

The wicked will go down to the grave. This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God. (Psalms 9:17 NLT)
