Everyone who voted for
Obama should feel betrayed, ashamed and disgusted.
Anyone who still trusts, admires and respects Obama is a fool.
Here is my
I wake up one day soon and hear the news that President
Obama has a fatal brain tumor and will soon resign. Praise the Lord!
If you have any doubt whatsoever about how bad a president Obama is, then
take the time to read this incredibly fine essay by Drew Westen “What
Happened to Obama?”
Obama has no real, meaningful principles, nor passion and courage to say and
do what the U.S. desperately needs.
He repeatedly fails to publicly identify
the enemies of the state and rally public support for fighting evil and
corruption in the political system. For a supposedly smart guy he appears to
ordinary people as brain dead. His presidency makes a compelling case why we
need a constitutional amendment creating the option for American voters to
recall a president.
Far too many people will wrongly believe that voting to reelect Obama is
better than voting for any Republican. They are dead wrong. Better to not
vote at all for any presidential candidate or vote for a third party
candidate. Lesser evil voting has been one of the primary causes of the
decline of American democracy, allowing the total corruption of the
political system by money representing the interests of the rich and
Sticking with Obama or giving him another term is idiocy on steroids, like
remaining on the sinking Titanic rather than escaping in a lifeboat.
There is only one thing that everyone can see Obama stands for and is
totally committed to: staying in office.
Even more depressing than having a failed president is that Americans are
not doing what citizens in Greece, England and Israel have been doing in
response to their economic suffering: rioting in the streets. Our brain dead
president seems matched by a brain dead public, victimized by evil forces
controlling the economy.
The wealth of the nation has been extracted by
greedy elite and corporate interests.
Even in this awful economy that rivals
the Great Depression in the pain inflicted on a large fraction of the public

The cancerous political and economic corruption in the

The core reason why we have a dysfunctional government
is that we have a two-party plutocracy owned by rich and powerful interests.
Obama has shown that he too is a puppet of moneyed interests; he does not
fight for the poor or the middle class.
Americans seem paralyzed by distraction, delusion and outright stupidity.

With two corrupt political parties controlling the political
system the only solution is using what the Founders had the wisdom to give
us in the Constitution:
Article V convention of state delegates that
could propose constitutional amendments, which are the only route for
obtaining genuine reforms of our political system, such as getting all
private money out of politics.

Conference on the Constitutional Convention
The justification for it includes this correct view:
of any kind is stalled by a status quo that profits from blocking change.
In other words, things have gotten so awful that we cannot vote our way out
of our national mess. We must work through out states to reform government.
Pay attention to this:

today has the consent of the governed, the lowest level ever measured.

This means that they still do not
understand the urgent need for restructuring and reforming the political
system. Mass riots in the streets may be needed to fix the system.
