Obama Update

The past two days have seen some interesting developments from President Obama.

Probably the biggest piece of news is that Obama declared June Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. In the proclamation he rattles off all the supposed benefits the LGBT community brought to America. Including working hard in the federal government, leading in the art and business communities, and mobilizing the Nation to respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and broadening this country's response to the HIV pandemic.

He concludes the proclamation by baking a call for giving the LGBT community equal justice under the law.
As long as the promise of equality for all remains unfulfilled, all Americans are affected. If we can work together to advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every American will benefit. During LGBT Pride Month, I call upon the LGBT community, the Congress, and the American people to work together to promote equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
When you remember how Obama refused to sign the traditional Day of Prayer proclamation last month, this proclamation makes it very clear what the president values.

Obama also reversed one more of his campaign promises by agreeing to tax health benefits. This was an issue he was hitting McCain pretty hard on during the general election. This latest reversal makes people echo Brian Kirwin and ask, "Do campaigns matter anymore?" This is why previous stances and votes on issues are more important than campaign rhetoric.

The third and possibly the scariest Obama information actually comes from Russia. A Soviet-era newspaper still published in Russia carried an opinion piece entitled "American Capitalism Gone with a Whimper." The article described how America has has descended into Marxism. It refers to the government takeover of GM, changes in education, and election of President Obama as proof of this descent.

One very interesting quote describes the decay of American churches. He seems to understand the importance of churches in preserving liberty better than most Americans.
"Their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different ‘branches and denominations’ were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega-churches were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the ‘winning’ side of one pseudo-Marxist politician or another."
Whether or not we are a full fledged marxist nation is debatable, but it is true we are close to crossing that point. We need to unite and turn this country back to freedom.
