Letter: Obama’s change

Five days before the 2008 election, Barack Obama stated that, if elected, he would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” Now, after more than three years in office, it is quite obvious what he meant.

His leftist ideals focus on changing our Constitution’s embedded distrust of big government and our guarantee of Creatorgiven unalienable rights, to rights granted by the state, rooted in collectivism.

The recent, highly successful movie, “2016: Obama’s America” shows in Obama’s own words and speeches what his dreams are for America, echoing his own father’s radical anti-Westernism and his distaste for American exceptionalism. It is a very enlightening flick.

No matter how you feel about the charisma of any particular candidate, this election is quintessentially about the fundamental direction this nation will move in for the next four years, and beyond. Will it be the free opportunity society that made us great and will keep us great, or will it be a European-style nanny state, eventually overwhelmed by overregulation and crushing debt, impoverishing our children and grandchildren. The choice is yours.
