The Price of a Preposterous Presidency

Just how much are we paying for the gooey warm glow of sanctimony liberals derive from Barack Obama’s “historic” presidency? The total cost is incalculable, but The Economic Collapse lists 33 documented facts that give a general idea in monetary terms, including:

• When the Obama era began, the average duration of unemployment in this country was 19.8 weeks. Today, it is 36.6 weeks.

• During the first four years of Obama, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” soared by an astounding 8,332,000. That far exceeds any previous four year total.

• Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

• The poverty rate has shot up to 16.1 percent. That is actually higher than when the War on Poverty began in 1965.

• When Barack Obama entered the White House, there were about 32 million Americans on food stamps. Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.

• When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.85. Today, it is $3.53.

• Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

• Health insurance costs have risen by 29 percent since Barack Obama became president, and Obamacare is going to make things far worse.

• During Obama’s first term, the federal government accumulated more new debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

• When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama’s first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States.

Meanwhile, the media that put Obama in power and keeps him there despite his growing list of impeachable offenses tells us that we are in a recovery.

    Why, I’m beginning to think all the lunatic-left talk about (phony) racism is just to distract people from the massive, countless FAILURES of OBOZO and his radical socialist extremism. Of course, I could be wrong.

    What would happen to a species, or any population of organisms in nature, if you removed all internal competition?

    Right. There would soon be no variation–everyone would be the same. That is, equal.

    Then without variation, the population would not adapt to environmental changes, would become weaker and weaker and eventually go extinct.

    Same with socialism and the ideas of equality.

    Everywhere its been tried (USSR, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Cambodia and so on), socialism has been an abject disaster.

    The great dimocrat thinkers — dumb as asphalt.

    Unfortunately, the problem transcends Obama. Liberalism has become institutionalized in all areas of our society. Moreover, it has become deeply engrained in the culture. The sorry situation America finds itself in has been a work in progress deterioration for at least 60 years now.

    Just take a look at the immigration bill RINO’s like Juan McLoser, Rubio, and the effeminate Lindsey Graham are fighting to have passed. Everybody in America gets paid except the dumb fools who actually go to work everyday and pay their taxes.
