Don’t get me wrong here. I have nothing against the guy personally. He seems to have integrity and a genuine passion for our country, something that is lacking in a lot of our leaders. That still doesn’t mean he makes good decisions.
I want the best for our country. I want more than anything to see America prosper. I just don’t believe the plans (economic) Obama has made are good for our country. I believe they are actually detrimental to the well being of our nation and its prosperity.
The de-privatizing of our banking and auto industries, in part or in whole, is absolutely the wrong way to go. Name me a single government entity that is not a money loser. There isn’t one. The government isn’t designed to make money. So then why would you put any business sector into the hands of the government?
Because of the poor record of our past administration, I believe people are blind to see what is good for our country. They have put their faith in Obama, like some messiah here to rescue us from…everything. As his plans unfold and do not come to fruition, he will not be blamed. The people will forgive him and blame it on the baggage of the past administration, allowing us to continue to dig ourselves into a deeper trench.
In all of this, what I am saying is one of the following two things.
1. “I hope I am absolutely wrong about what makes the world turn and Obama’s plans bring America to its former, prosperous state as a country.” I am not hopeful for this one unfortunately, but I would be glad to admit that I was wrong if this happens.
2. “I hope someone comes up with a better plan to fix our nation, relying on responsible individuals to make smart choices to grow their personal wealth and in turn the wealth of our nation.” I do not want to see how low our country gets before we realize we need this other plan, but I truly believe this is the way we’re headed.
So it is with a burdened heart that I say, “I hope Obama fails.”
