Exurban Kevin Creighton
Kevin Creighton (aka ExurbanKevin) is the self-described physical embodiment of NAFTA: He’s a Canadian living in the U.S. who speaks fluent Spanish. He’s also, (in ascending order of importance), a former professional photographer, recovering nerd, online marketing guru, father to two adorable boys, husband to a wonderful woman and a servant of the King. Kevin blogs about politics at Exurban League and his self-defense and gunblog is Misfires And Light Strikes. When he's not blogging (which isn't all that often...), he's probably playing with his sons or cooking a meal for his family or listening to 80's alternative music or off at a shooting range somewheres.
As President Obama’s first term draws to a painful conclusion, we the People were enlightened with one “last” press conference to bridge the destructive behaviors of his first term into the Utopian results of a second. Supposedly this was to talk about the debt ceiling along with all the fiscal battles we had to face as a Nation, but as expected it was more about congratulating himself and letting the citizens know how hard he has had to fight on our behalf against so much opposition, but now thanks to his hard work and efforts we as a country are poised for a new and improved future. I think we all know what this “last” press conference was really about. It was nothing more than a continuation of his incessant campaigning as he keeps trying to sell Americans on the idea of the new Utopian Country he is transforming us into along with his progressive partners in crime.
Obama stood in front of the cameras, one of his favorite places to be and told us how thanks to his first four years as President we now have a great foundation laid out before us despite the many battles he had to face by the evil Republicans. He then continued patting himself on the back by reminding his 47%er’s that he has extracted 600 billion dollars in revenue by “making sure the wealthiest pay their share”. Never mind it does little to nothing to help our countries debt situation as long as we have such an out of control spending problem! But don’t look at the root of the problem keep listening to the rhetoric and you too can feel good about our future. As Obama went on to say “We are poised for a good year if we make smart decisions and smart investments, and Washington politics (his opposition) doesn’t get in the way of America’s progress” (The Progressive agenda). I can only imagine what the next four years of a new Utopian America will look like….. but let’s try!
Imagine there’s no heaven it’s easy if you try. Just look at the Obama care mandate that slaps Christians in the face as they are forced to provide birth control measures in the insurance they must provide to their employees that go against the Christian faith yet we are being told we must honor other religious beliefs such as Muslims who have a religious loop hole to opt out completely. Christians are now waking up in a world where they are the bad guys and God is not relevant in matters where the elite wish to control the people. In Utopian America there can be no heaven because there can be no loving God that gave us our rights which is exactly where Obama wishes to take us. You cannot take away rights if they are God given and you cannot serve two masters. They just better pray there is no hell below them when someday they answer for the things they are doing to America.
Imagine all the people living for today, no fear of consequences of their actions everything is up for grabs in our new Utopian America. Our leaders spend without fear of retribution and legislate against the will of the people while continually stepping on our Constitution. In the spotlight yet again there is this little thing called the debt ceiling that is rolled out to the media once a year. We are told our Government will shut down and nobody will get paid and the earth will stand still if we do not raise the limit once again to meet our ever increasing bills. It has become nothing more than a way to scare the begeezes out of the citizens and is used as tool to allow the Government to continue on its reckless path of spending and unsustainable growth. Senator Harry Reid told Obama that the Democrats would support him if he had to unilaterally raise it without Congress. No worries about reducing spending and the consequences of not having a budget. The United States has not had a budget for over three years now! How can the most powerful country in the world justify this? Freedom works had a fun article on just how long it has been. Here are a few things that put it into perspective;
Since the last time Dems last passed a budget, Facebook has grown from about 200 million users to 900 million or more.
Last time the Senate Democrats passed a budget, the only people occupying Wall Street actually worked there
The last time the Dems passed a budget the space shuttle still had 11 missions to go before retiring.
Last time the Senate Democrats passed a budget Tiger Woods was happily married
Last time the Democrats passed a budget, the Arab Spring was an overpriced Vegas Casino.
The last time the Dems passed a budget “Jersey Shore’ wasn’t even on TV yet.
The last time the Dems passed a budget Lindsay Lohan wasn’t familiar with prison jumpsuites
The last time Dems passed a budget, Barack Obama wasn’t a proud Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
Imagine there’s no countries in Obama’s world it isn’t hard to do. The continual assault on our freedoms and financial state will bring us down to third world status faster than you can say welcome to the New World Order. Nothing to kill and die for and no religion too, this is because in the New Nirvana of the Progressives they are working towards a borderless world, a world where there is no religion. Why is this important? Well if you have borders you can breed patriotism and loyalty to a country and way of life. If you have faith in God you cannot put a man as your God. Total control of the people’s hearts and minds are imperative in a Socialist utopian dream. There is a big problem with this however and it is the human spirit. I believe we are made in the image of God and as such have free will and desire to live freely and aspiring to achievement. We cannot be controlled by man.
Imagine all the people living life in peace, Obama just made an astounding speech today on 23 Executive orders on gun control. You cannot force peace on people by tyranny and taking away their rights. I would say yes they are dreamers and this chapter in American history could prove more than what they asked for. Socialist will use fear of guns to take them every time and history has proven it over and over. I just happen to believe and hope that the socialists have messed with the wrong people this time.
Imagine no possessions – well in a socialist Utopian America you won’t really have to imagine. It’s coming so enjoy what you have now because you won’t have as much tomorrow. The middle class is systematically being dismantled and replaced with those that have to struggle to make ends meet. This is the new world of the rulers and those that need ruled. Obama and the elite see nothing wrong with such a double standard as they truly believe they are superior. President Obama had the audacity to call upon the American people to make sacrifices for the common good of all while the Obama family cost the American tax payer 1.4 Billion dollars in 2012! Now keep in mind in this new world there will be no need for greed or hunger as we will all be able to get food stamps and government subsidies paid for by the those “greedy people” thus punishing them for their success.
Imagine all the people sharing all the world as in a UN controlled One world government of a socialist Utopia. I find that image frightening! I am hoping the American people will wake up and stop allowing Obama to continue taking us in this direction. What about you? Can you imagine living in this new Utopian country being set up for us? I can’t.
