What if Obama Wins!

English: Seal of the President of the United S...

We’re just eight months away from voting for President of the United States. Could it be that we’re just ten months away from having a new President? Or, as much of the broadcast and print media would have you believe, are we only ten months away from President Barrack Obama beginning another four years of serving as our nation’s leader.

Current events in the RepublicanPresidential nominating race would have you believe that Obama is nearer to re-election than he has been in the minds of the electorate in a year or two. Can this be? And if so, what does it mean? Here are just a few things likely to happen if Obama squirms his way into another term.

Barack Obama

Barack Obama

First, and most important, Obamacare will not be repealed and the 70% of Americans who said in a recent Gallop Poll that they oppose it would be left to relying on the Supreme Court to knock it down. While I do think that is likely. I’m not comfortable leaving it up to our Justices. We could all be much more comfortable repealing it and starting from scratch. Were the Supreme Court not to strike down Obamacare, Obama’s recent dictum to religious institutions that they provide free contraception to all their employees represents a fine example of the tyrannical rule the President’s health care program allows for. Call it a drop in the bucket.

English: Barack Obama signing the Patient Prot...

Signing Obamacare.

Most of Obamacare becomes law in 2014. It is then that all company’s in the U.S. with employees of 50 or more will be required to provide healthcare to their employees or pay a fine. It is then that all individuals regardless of age, health, or financial wherewithal will have to buy private health insurance coverage or pay a fine. It is in 2014 that Medicare doctors will lose much of what they are paid for.

Gas prices will continue to rise. Obama wants them to. His plan for moving us to a “greener” society is to make our current way of living cost prohibitive. This isn’t angry Republican theory. He’s said it.

The cost of everything will go up. Obama has been trying like crazy to raise taxes on the upper 5% of income earners since entering the White House. Now he’s likely to get what he craves. Rich people didn’t get rich by being stupid. If they have to pay more taxes than they will raise the price of goods and services which they control in order to make up the difference.

America crawling out of the deep recession is likely to continue at a glacial pace. 3-4-percent growth is a mere pipe dream. As economists have predicted we’ll continue with growth only in the anemic 2% – 2.5% range; which will continue to keep unemployment high and wages low. If the economy is not growing and lots of people are out of work and under-employed employers have zero incentive to raise wages and/or benefits. Besides, having eaten the massive extra costs Obamacare will impose on business America’s workers can kiss any wage or salary increases goodbye for the next several years. Yes, Mr. Obama, elections do have consequences.

If Obama wins re-election Iran gets a nuclear weapon and war is likely to spread in the Middle East and will include Israel. Such a scenario might also include the exchange of nuclear weapons.

Worst of all Obama’s stated goal of redistributing wealth will continue to ingrain in the minds of Americans and our youth, our future, that the world owes them something and that they are entitled to it. Such a sick way of looking at the world might assure everyone a roof over there heads and food on their plates. But that’s about it. Our collective mutual poverty is all that’s assured with such a socialist mentality. Striving, reaching for more, enduring hardship…all gone. Instead Obama will teach us that we’re all in this together and we all deserve what each other has.

If Obama wins…we lose our souls, we lose our hope, but we will definitely face change.

Palestinian IS a made up people AND conflict.

English: Newt Gingrich at a political conferen...

Republican PResidential Candidate Newt Gingrich

Lost in the uproar over GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich‘s claim that Palestinians are a made-up people is the fact that he’s absolutely right. I’ll go further and state that not only are the Palestinians a made-up people but their plight is a largely made up problem. There has never, ever been a Palestinian Kingdom, Royalty, or Government; except for that which currently “governs” the Palestinian territories around Jerusalem and Gaza.

I’ll bet my mortgage that most Americans are completely oblivious to the true story behind the “Palestinians”.

A League of Nations mandate required the establishment of a new, separate, Palestinian nationality for the inhabitants of the Ottoman territories East of Jerusalem in 1917. Upon the creation of Israel and the subsequent Arab-Israeli War of 1948 a “Palestinian Exodus” occurred.

Palestinian refugee camp in Syria in 1948

What’s important to note is that it was a voluntary exodus for the country that had been established, Israel. Neighboring countries Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Egypt then and now have most of the world’s Palestinians, these people without a nation. Palestinians actually make up more than half of Jordan’s population of over 3-million people.

Israel and Palestinian controlled lands

But most significant in their plight is despite being Arab, Arab speaking, and Muslim like the indigenous populations of these neighboring countries none of their host nations have welcomed the Palestinians.

More than 60 years since the Exodus these Palestinians and their descendants live in tents and are not allowed citizenship in their host countries. They are not allowed to own land, vote, or in any way live as their brethren. You have to ask yourselves, why? What would happen if these Arab countries granted full citizenship and rights to a people who have lived in their lands for over 60 years? Well…the problem would go away…wouldn’t it? And then Arab’s would be forced to find some other reason to hate Jews and Israel.

I find Gingrich’s strong and truthful statements about Palestinians refreshing. Gingrich hasn’t said he doesn’t want peace in the Middle East. On the contrary, he has just been particularly strong in condemning the rain of rockets that continually fall on Israel. Were it happening daily in the United States, say…along the Mexican border, would you be any less “strong” in your condemnation of  it? We’ve tried placating them for over 30 years. Perhaps telling the truth and calling them what they actually are will lead us to what everyone wants. Peace.
