President Barack Obama enters his second term with consumer confidence at a four-year low and unemployment increasing. His re-election was accomplished with 3 million fewer voters than this election, a modern first. Dozens of polling centers in Democrat enclaves registered not one single opposing vote.

Obama is now ‘free’ to be the radical he always was – an inflexible ideologue who is not qualified to manage a restaurant, but who the most important nation in the world must follow to our doom.

The Re-election of Obama means no reform will be possible on the entitlements that are bankrupting the United States, now together consuming more than 100% of all Federal tax dollars collected annually.

Higher taxes can never compensate for overspending on such a vast scale. If 100% of the income of every millionaire was confiscated only $740 billion more would be raised, only half enough to close one Obama deficit.

The citation of FDR is prescient. In 1933 FDR vowed that ‘capitalism had met its match’. In 1937, FDR wanted it said that ‘capitalism had met its master’, presaging the confiscatory taxation, trade restrictionism, and attacks on Capitalism that made the Depression Great.

The Japanese were committing atrocities in China, and Hitler’s entry into the Sudetenland was only one year away, but FDR thought we could remain on the sidelines.

1937 is the correct historical parallel for our time, with Iran well on the way to a nuclear weapon, and China rattling their now-substantial saber over the Spratly Islands.

Balancing the Federal Budget and having a national defense was not always considered ‘radical right’. Today, for Mr. Turner and his fellow travelers, it is.

Handing every baby born in America today $52,000 in Federal debt is mainstream for today’s****Kleptocrats.

Dear Leader Obama disregards the Constitution at home, disdains allies abroad and supports adversaries. Dem

Dr. Turner, for someone with an education, sure doesn't have or show common sense. Obama has not done anything helpful to the economy. He's destroying what's left of it. It's so obvious that high schoolers can see it, yet 'intellectuals' cannot. Not surprised. So many ignorant people just "follow the party line" instead of using their own brains.

Uh, I beg to differ Mr. Turner. Obama is STILL illegitimate and always will be. THAT is why he STILL refuses to show us HIS background. Yet he wants to FORCE gun owners to have one done.

Pelosi and Reid should be brought up on charges of fraud for signing and swearing an oath that Obama was ELIGIBLE to be a President of the United States of America, knowing full well he is and was NOT!!
