July 30, 2014 - On what track is Obama's plans for America?
Or perhaps he has none.
He's certainly ignored, or lied again, of his promise of transparency in Washington, DC.
Seems his lying, such as "You can keep your doctor," is his policy on all matters.
I've lived a long time, and witnessed extreme declines in faith in our government to do what is right and best for our country's current and future citizens. I'm beginning to believe Obama is anti-American, which he may have gotten from his Chicago pastor Jeremiah Wright.
I'm going to list some of Obama's actions that have prompted these thoughts:
He has a policy of opening borders, not closing them.
He refuses to visit the Tex-Mex border.
He doesn't push for fencing at the border.
He has no military in his cabinet.
He has pink-slipped several officers in the Iraq-Iran arena.
A recent poll has Obama replacing president George W. Bush as the worst president since World War II.
Obama asks for less spending for our armed forces, which makes our country more vulnerable.
Under his watch, America is no longer regarded as a world power.
He's allowed spying on Germany.
His spending pattern permits less spending on our poor, education and citizenry in general.
His loose-border policy favors his Democrat party.
The policies in Washington are "my way or the highway" and that goes for both political parties.
Our country needs LEADERSHIP!
What our country gets is LIES.

There's a new movie coming out with a seasoned actor featured in a top roll. He's Fred Thompson. I've followed him for a long time.
Fred is a former U.S. Senator, who gave up politics for acting rolls. He's often seen on detective-like shows as a district attorney and crime fighter.
He's been seen even more often as a salesman for AAG Insurance. He's balding and appears with and without a moustache for his rolls.
By the time you read this, you may have seen him in his current film, "Persecuted."
