I think it is time to suspend my website and stop broadcasting my radio show. It would appear that I have been overreacting to my perception of a failed economy, a weakened military, a failed foreign policy, high unemployment, skyrocketing levels of corruption, and extreme violoent crime in America’s 50 largest cities. The following excerpt of Obama’s DNC speech highlights why I am chastizing myself for being overly pessimistic.
“After the worst recession in 80 years, we’ve fought our way back. We’ve seen deficits come down, 401(k)s recover, an auto industry set new records, unemployment reach eight-year lows, and our businesses create 15 million new jobs.
After a century of trying, we declared that health care in America is not a privilege for a few, but a right for everybody. After decades of talk, we finally began to wean ourselves off foreign oil, and doubled our production of clean energy.”
Obama told the DNC that “America is already strong.” This obviously meant that the country doesn’t need someone like Donald Trump to fix things because nothing is broken. In fact, Obama went on to say:
“We brought more of our troops home to their families, and delivered justice to Osama bin Laden. Through diplomacy, we shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program, opened up a new chapter with the people of Cuba, and brought nearly 200 nations together around a climate agreement that could save this planet for our kids.
We put policies in place to help students with loans; protect consumers from fraud; and cut veteran homelessness almost in half….”
There you have it, everything is OK, we can turn out the lights on the Independent Media and go home. But wait a minute, there’s this little thing called the truth.
As followers of The Common Sense Show can tell you, we have a different set of facts.
- Young adults, when they go to college are acquiring a lifetime of insurmountable debt ($1.2 trillion).
- Veterans are killing themselves to the tune of 23 per day.
- General Motors has become China Motors.
- Healthcare providers are leaving Obamacare in droves.
- The free trade agreements continue to destroy American communities by sending jobs overseas.
