Rasmussen Poll: Only 27% of Americans Think Country Headed In Right DirectionTopics: Political News and commentaries
Americans apparently realize, by a very large majority, that the incompetent far-left narcissist they elected not just once, but twice, to run our government ... has failed miserably and that our nation is headed in the wrong direction!
Twenty-seven percent (27%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey for the week ending May 4.Borrowing from the words of David Limbaugh, the America we see today is "but a cloudy shadow" of the one in which we grew up, This has become all the more the case since the day Barack Obama took office. We have seen America become ever more racially, culturally, and class-wise devisive all while our nation suffers ever increasing cultural and moral decline juxtaposed to a severe drop in international trust and standing.
This is unchanged from the week before and remains the lowest level of optimism since early December. The number who say the country is heading in the right direction had been in the narrow range of 28% to 30% for 16 out of the 20 weeks since then.
As Limbaugh so clearly points out, this is the result of the agenda and priorities of Barack Obama, world liberalism's greatest proponent, and the indefensible positions he and the entire Democratic Party apparatus and the liberal establishment enable and support, including his lawlessness and abuses of power:
Here's a short sampling of the Obama/Democratic/liberal agenda and record:The list continues here ...
--Opposing laws (voter ID laws) to reduce voter fraud in the name of protecting it and dishonestly and preposterously labeling proponents as racists.
--Stirring up public jealousy, suspicion, distrust, disharmony and discontentment with a dishonest, anti-capitalist crusade against "income inequality" yet denying all responsibility for exacerbating the situation with their own policies and, in the process, making great strides in moving us away from equal opportunity, which guarantees the most prosperity for the most people, and toward the goal of equal outcomes, which always leads to increased poverty and misery.
--Implementing policies that have stagnated the economy since Obama's been in office yet still blaming George W. Bush and everyone and everything but him.
--Destroying the work ethic by demonizing and punishing producers, success and business and glorifying and rewarding dependency, sloth and covetousness.
--Pushing increases in minimum wage and endless extensions of unemployment benefits with a superior air of compassion while wholly ignoring their deleterious effects on jobs and the people they purport to help.
--Sabotaging America's energy independence and prosperity by blocking oil drilling, suffocating fracking of natural gas through onerous, costly regulations, jacking power prices by 70 to 80 percent with the Environmental Protection Agency's new "clean coal rule," and unleashing the totalitarian, unchecked EPA to wage war against most other reliable domestic energy resources -- all the while pretending to be conventional energy's best friend and taking credit for its advances and, without a scintilla of accountability or remorse, wasting billions of dollars on failed green energy projects, which wouldn't reduce global temperatures a smidgen, even if you believe in man-made global warming.
--Moving the federal debt toward a fiscal crisis (according to the Congressional Budget Office) and denying it's even a problem and blocking entitlement and other spending reform to reverse it.
--Destroying America's health care system while claiming to save it.
--Facilitating the federal funding of abortion through Obamacare while denying it.
--Manufacturing a phony GOP war on women and pitting the genders against each other for political gain.
Anyway you cut it, Barack Obama has brought us an America in decline. As Barry Shaw notes at American Thinker, Obama heads an Administration that produces food stamps, pries into peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s private lives, and sets government agencies against political opponents. Obama is following the guidebook of Saul Alinsky, "Rules for Radicals," and is putting Alinsky's primer into practice from the White House ... and the results of his experiment have been devastating.
Under Obama, prices and taxes rose while take home pay fell 7%. Government hand-outs increased dramatically as the national debt has exploded. Recent estimates put 50 million Americans on food stamps, and millions without healthcare.And as bad as all this is (and it's by no means all the damage he's done) ... the community organizer isn't finished yet ... he's got 2 more years to go!
Obama, the community organizer, preferred social justice over a robust market place, but, under his presidency, people are worse off today than they were back in 2009 when he promised them change. By the end of the first quarter of 2014 America had six million people not only unemployed but also not even looking for jobs, the vast majority under the age of 55. This implies they had given up all hope of finding work. More than forty million Americans lived below the poverty line.
Increasingly, America is becoming a nation of dysfunctional families. 41% of babies are born out of wedlock. Under America's first black president, American blacks are increasingly unemployed, and 72% of black kids are born out of wedlock, a terrible indictment of American society. The corrosive results of government hand-outs are now rampant in America. A nanny-state produces a population of dependency, not independence or an entrepreneurial spirit.
