Welcome Summer!

My eldest daughter today sent a picture of her 7 year old son lying on the sidewalk, next to a huge sign he'd written with sidewalk chalk stating: WELCOME SUMMER! I'm sure children all over our state are feeling the same joy. All of us recall that last day of school when we looked forward to sleeping late, no homework, family vacations and being able to play all day. My sister and I used to walk up the hill to our home singing, "No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks!" Summer meant fun, leisure and few responsibilities.

Then we grew up.

Our outlook on summers changed gradually as adulthood crept up on us with ever-increasing responsibilities. Carefree summers gave way to summer jobs, saving money for college and the anticipation of choosing majors and forging new careers. Summers became the time to look for a job, planning our weddings and making decisions that would impact our lives forever. But, even as we shouldered new responsibilities, summers were still synonymous with less worries and more leisure time. In those days, summers seemed to mean "God's in His Heaven, and all is right with the world."

Today as I smiled looking at the picture of my grandson, I was overcome by the thought that God is still in His Heaven, but all is not right in the world. For the first time in our adult lives we have lost faith in our government.

As it was for many Americans, September 11, 2001 changed our lives forever. It made us aware that this country, which has always extended a helping hand to those in need, is vulnerable to vicious attacks from those who have harbored hatred and resentment against us for generations. September 11, 2001 was a harsh awakening, but it made us stronger as a nation and united us as a people. We were challenged, not just by a long war against terror, but by a new presidential election at a time we needed strong leadership in Washington.

November 4, 2008, to quote FDR's assessment of Pearl Harbor, is "a day that will live in infamy." It was on that day that a slim majority of Americans elected Barack Hussein Obama as president of the United States. His record, his books, the company he kept, even his very words were proof that Obama was a Marxist-trained socialist who felt the need to apologize for America rather than extol its virtues. We knew it would be a great error to elect such a man. We knew he would bring division, adversity and catastrophic changes if he were allowed to run our country.

We were correct. Our lives have not been the same since that day. The fun-filled, carefree summer days are over. Summer is on its way once again, but it is marred by our concern and fear for our country and our future generations.

It is truly mind boggling to witness the media bias on full display as the current administration systematically dismantles our way of life and tramples our Constitution. This president has ignored his promises, failed to do what he said he would do, and boldly behaved as he promised he would not. Yet, the media shamelessly praises him, and too many Americans still believe that he has their best interests at heart.

Since taking office, Obama has dedicated himself to ushering the U. S. toward a European-style social democracy. His federal intrusion into American industry and commerce is unprecedented. His unconstitutional health care revolution has relegated health insurance companies into utilities governed by restrictive government regulations, and it was rammed through without a single thought to the will of the American people.

Obama has led the country into a staggering $14 plus trillion debt while relying on a failed stimulus program that has allowed the unemployment rate to rise to almost 10%.

He has gone back on major promises we knew he couldn't keep, including closing GITMO and bringing home the troops from Iraq by mid-2010.

He has traveled throughout the world humiliating us by offering apologies for America's arrogance, instead of acknowledging our contributions and our unequaled generosity toward any nation that has needed a helping hand. His faltering leadership and his lack of forcefulness has made us a laughing stock among enemies who once feared us. He shamed us instead of igniting our pride and our confidence.

He continues to ram globalism down the throats of the American people, determined to strip away our sovereignty by subjecting us to the demands and rules of the United Nations.

He has faltered and delayed in acceding to the military's request for additional troops in the Afghan War.

He has failed to speak in support of Iranian dissidents who continue to struggle against tyrannical rulers.

He faltered for weeks before finally following other nations into intervention in Libya, without Congressional approval, and then he failed to clearly define the mission and goal of the operation.

He has consistently failed to acknowledge the ideological threat posed by Islam, insisting that only a few radicals are to blame for acts of terror.

As we write this, Obama's budget proposal for the 2012 fiscal year has been unanimously rejected by the Senate. That's just as well, since he once again avoided the issue of entitlements while raising spending and taxes and offering no clear path toward deficit reduction.

Above all, Barack Obama has set a dangerous example for American youth by displaying an unfavorable attitude toward his own country. He has failed to remind them that the United States has always been a unique nation with a noble purpose. He has failed to exhibit the kind of moral clarity that marks a true leader. He has failed to ignite his constituents with the passion that should exist in the hearts of all Americans....the kind of passion exhibited by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu when he spoke to Congress about justice and liberty and his love for America. He has failed to remind us that we can still be, as Reagan called us, "a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere."

As always, this coming Memorial Day will usher in the days of summer. While Barack Obama and his family spend their time globe-trotting and taking expensive vacations on the taxpayers' dollar, Americans with limited resources will try to find the way to make the best of the warm days ahead. Many of us will remember that first American Continental Army which fought and died for the values and freedom that Barack Obama would deny us. And we will pause and reflect upon our fear that never in its history has our country been in greater peril, because for the first time we have a president who brazenly disregards his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution.

In the end, it's our fault. We made possible the election of an inexperienced community organizer who forged his political career in the shadows of Chicago backrooms, when what we needed was a world-class statesman who would reinforce our belief in ourselves, in our exceptionalism, our nobility and our ideals. It was an error we can not repeat.

Very well done! You wereon target with your examination of how Obama and his administration have stepped all over our rights and our dreams!I still see Obama not so much as the source of the destruction regarding our freedom, but rather the implement the leaderson the Left are using to further enact their goals.

Sister One,
Thanks you and I am a Conservative and have been so for many, many years. As I age my resolve and views on being a Constitutional Conservative are right and the ONLY WAY for us to regain our footing and place in the world.
