The Broken Agreements Of Barack Obama

      The Obama administration has no problem denying our allies like Canada a deal on the Keystone pipeline, or previously promised missile defense systems to Poland and Czechoslovakia. He also seems to be desirous of denying law-abiding American citizens their God-given right to defend themselves and their families in whatever manner they choose. President Obama has even expressed a desire to see Israel leave themselves defenseless against their enemies by retreating to pre-1967 borders. What the President doesn't have a problem with is handing over F-16 fighter jets, Abrams tanks and piles of cash to the terrorist-controlled Egypt.
     I realize that the United States has long-standing agreements with Egypt, but that was under the regime of Hosni Mubarak, not the terrorist leader, Mohamed Morsi. And while Hosni Mubarak was no saint, he was an ally in the war on terror and he kept the peace with Israel for over 30 years. That peace is viewed by the Morsi regime as a burden too great to bear. We already know that Barack Obama has no compunction with regards to breaking previously held agreements, just ask the Poles and Czechs. For that matter just ask Congressional Republicants who have made agreements with the President, only to have him change the terms and move the goal posts.
     In fact, President Obama has broken every agreement he has made with the American people, who he is suppose to serve. The most glaring example is that of not raising taxes on the middle-class. But higher health care costs due to ObamaCare, inflationary fuel costs resulting from the President's energy policy and higher electricity costs which the President has caused with his war on coal, have all hit the middle-class harder than any other demographic. And when you factor in the continued and growing costs of ObamaCare, this President has raised taxes on the middle-class more than all other presidents combined.
    President Obama made an agreement with the American people that he would cut the budget deficit in half, he has actually tripled it. And now he says that the Federal government doesn't even have a spending problem. This statement flies in the face of a 16 trillion dollar debt with trillion dollar deficits being added every year. If the President stays the course that his administration has set for itself, Mr. Obama will leave the next president with over 20 trillion dollars in debt. This is hard to even fathom but if you imagine going back 4.5 billion years ago when the earth was formed and you spent four thousand dollars every day forward to the present, it still would be slightly less than the debt being left by President Obama to the American people.
     After having watched Barack Obama operate the last four years, one would be living in denial to say that he is a man of his word. He will say anything he thinks he has to in order to gain politically. And no agreement made by his administration or previous ones is sacred and worthy of being kept if breaking it means he can advance his authoritarian world view. Let us hope that by the time Barack Obama leaves office in January of 2017, his flood of broken agreements don't drowned the very tenets of freedom and liberty upon which this country was founded.
