An Open Letter to the President from Dan Weber

The Reign of Obama, the Great Divider, Continues -

From the moment you assumed power- you began to divide the people. Instead of uniting us- you chose to divide us.

When you ran for office you made many promises, which is not unusual for politicians, but soon it became evident that your promises were falsehoods.

You said you would work with the opposition party- but you insulted them, several times, in person, in public. Your tactic was to cut them out of any decision making, as you did with Obamacare.

You said you would have a transparent administration, where the people would know what was going on and that C-SPAN would film what used to be secret negotiations- instead you kept C-SPAN out and your minions held meetings behind closed, locked doors.

You accused the prior administration of being unpatriotic by increasing our National Debt- yet you knew your programs could not be paid for without borrowing- so you increased our debt, more than doubling that of the prior administration.

You said you would support our free market economy and promote the creation of new jobs. During the campaign you said you actually did create new jobs while you knew in your heart that 23 million Americans were out of work and the unemployment rate was just as high as when you started.

Instead of trying to unite all our economic forces and get the economy moving again- you choose to divide us by class, pitting the imaginary one percent against the rest of us, all for political gain.

You said there were too many abortions- that you would do everything you could to reduce the number of abortions, yet the first thing you did was to order the Federal government to pay for more abortions.

Shame on you Mr. President!

You spent the great power of the office you hold- on dividing us.

Instead of uniting us- you have tried to separate us: by class, by gender, by religion, and most sadly, even by race.

You and your Vice President have picked certain corporations and made them enemies of the people, calling them “cheaters” and “greedy” and mocking them, just to convince the voters that you really cared for them.

That may have helped in an election, but since you have won reelection there is no longer any need for that kind of rhetoric.

Surely you know that the true power of our country comes when we are united and when we stand together- not when we are a splintered, quarreling mob.

After this tough campaign Americans are now aware that we have got to take serious actions to fix what is broken. The people know we have taxed and spent our great nation into horrible, unsustainable debt. Social Security and our medical care must be made financially solvent.

And so Mr. President, you can spend the next four years continuing to divide us – or you can begin to bring us together for the common good.

AMAC has grown to 500,000 members and we’ll soon be in the millions. We are willing to work with you during your next term to achieve that common good.

With God’s continued blessing- the United States of America will survive.

    Had Romney won, it is highly doubtful that he and his team would have been able to rescue the nation’s wounded economy from the purposeful destruction that Obama has intentionally inflicted upon it. Obama having done so in order to “fundamentally transform” our free enterprise system into a Socialist state.

    Had Romney won, the only possible way to have saved the nation and its economy would have been to make deep cuts in the welfare and entitlement programs—cuts that would have been branded “murderous, discriminatory and racist” at every turn by the Liberal mainstream media. And the ever-increasing drumbeat of these accusations over the next four years would have given license to thousands—perhaps millions—of malcontents (liberals) to take to the streets in “civil unrest” (aka anarchy). As such, Romney’s never-ending vilification in print and in the electronic media would have soon painted him—and his fellow Mormons—as the enemies of America, with all the resulting antagonism, stress, and persecution of the Church, both at home and abroad.

    As is, over the next four years, right-wing zealots – not Christian Conservatives— will likely become increasingly resistant, confrontational, and possibly violent in response to the creeping Socialism. Thus, “social unrest” may begin at the other end of the political spectrum, likely precipitating equally violent responses from the pro-Socialist masses.

    Make that 500,001 effective tonight.

  3. Jerry Courtney says:

    After reading all of the foregoing, I concur with most of what has been said and offered as solutions and loyalty to our America. For a number of years that I have followed our political system, I have reached many conclusions regarding not only what is right for us but also, numerous things that MUST be changed if we are going to survive as a Republic. If you know what an Oligarchy is, you will realize that this is really what our government is. We want to believe that each of us is important enough to refer to ourselves as a Democracy — this is living in a dream world. In a small way this is true but not in the true sense that we want it to be.
    The result of this shameful election is certainly the proverbial pill to swallow; however, as I have learned in years of selling and simply applying the practice of positive thinking to my every day of life, “this too will pass.” It does not mean it is/will be easy but then is the process of living easy? It can be as long as we take life’s adversitys in stride. Read the Acceptance Prayer. ( deal with what we can change, with what we can’t and the wisdom to know the difference.)
    Now, about some segments of.our political system. As a WW11 Navy Veteran, I became 21 while my heavy cruiser was off Okinawa. Hooray I became eligible to vote; I picked the loser but, I voted. Now approaching 90 within the next 50 days or so, I have never failed to vote — note, I was 21. The change for those to be able to vote at 18, became an amendment in 3 months because the people demanded it. Looking back into my life, at 18, I don’t think I was capable of knowing what and for whom to vote. My priorities were elsewhere, except for the fact that I knew we were to go to war, against my desires. Now after all these years and working at polling places, observing those who come to vote, I am of the strong opinion that we shoud revert to the age of 21 for voting. I know I’ve heard just about all the resoning against this opinion; yet, I stick to my guns! There is another,
    that I believe is more important than the age qualification. IT IS TERM LIMITS FOR CONGRESS! Often there is reference to “the founding fathers”, I believe I am correct is saying that their thinking was opposed to any one person being in a political role as a lifetime pursuit. Thus, the elimination of a third term for a president — F.D. Roosevelt. Case in point, the past election, how many of us were/are against the second term of the would be almighty? Power begets power and all the evils therein.
    I plead with you to take a stand on at least this last thought. Look at those in the Congress currently who have been there for 20,25, 30, or more years. If they were so smart why have we come to our unwelcome predicament?

    I did post my comment a few minutes ago.

  5. June says:

    Re Dean’s comment to Mark Hebron’s –Dean says a ‘Sovereign God allowing a Civil War’—remember God gives everyone free will. I don’t believe God ‘allows anything’. God does give us the tools to deal w/unrest.

    Do appreciate the comments & very glad I switched from AARP.

    Peace to all.

  6. GAFatback says:

    PH said it best abut our future. But, the reason the Republicans lost thisc election is because too many of them thought that all politicians are liars and I’m not goping to vote. For every voter that did not vote was a vote for O’Bama.

  7. Leo Foster says:

    God bless you, We did not lose the election America Lost. I pray to God that America can survive this.
    Keep up the good work.

    Open letter to the President.
    That was an awesome letter. My thoughts exactly; and I am sure Lots of us.

  9. Allison says:

    I held out so much hope for this country until last Tuesday, but I now see the writing on the wall. We have been weighed, measured, and found wanting. America no longer has the blessings of God and we are now entering a time of chastisement.

    The United States of America: July 4th, 1776 – November 6th, 2012

  10. Gary says:

    What is the hold that Mr. Obama has over the business leaders of this country that gets them to side against the values of America for the Marxist values that BO holds so precious? I understand the blind wantings of the underachievers, the mindless welfare neediness, and the American value shattering rampage of the invaders of our American boarders. But for learned business owners to want our values to be change to the Marxist rantings of BO then is all lost for our American values? Surely there is some commonality of values left in the labor organizations that can see that they will be targeted by the Marxist government when it comes into being. Justice will certainly be blind until all are equal – that is all but the Marxist leaders.

    • Stan says:

      Gary, interesting comments, but they would be more powerful if you could cite the business leaders in question. Generalizing is done too much on this website, so I, for one, would appreciate specifics. Thanks.

      • Gary says:

        How about…

        Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO of salesforce.com

  11. Les Siegel says:

    Why ask GOD to help us now when people make the same mistakes over and over. Every legal voter should get out and spread the true message to the ignorant voters who vote in the same politicians they complain about all the time. GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES.

    • KR says:

      I honestly don’t mean to offend or anger you, but ‘God helps those who help themselves’ isn’t anywhere in the bible. There are many scriptures though that are similar to Proverbs 3:5 ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding’.

  12. Susan Satava says:

    I very much appreciate your proactive stance and making an effort to get Mr. Obama to see reason. I have only one problem: I do not believe that Mr. Obama wants to change a single thing; I think he’s quite pleased with himself over the degree of division he has created. He has ties to the Middle East that I believe he wishes very much to maintain, and he seems to be making a big show (to them) of how good a guy he is. I’ve surveyed his book about his father, and seen 2016; I think there’s a thick rope of truth to the suspicion that Obama is not fully American. At the very least, he has no desire to uphold a united America in the way that we desire.

    However, do try. I think there also should be a Special Prosecutor for Lybia. Thank you.

  13. Mark Heilbron says:

    You had better start if not allready to arm yourselves and learn how to use them. Civil war will be upon us in the very near future. Every great country or people had to go through a resurgence and the only way history shows is to eliminate through force the onse that brought it on. Look at every great civilization and tell me that it is not true. America is no different. We had one civil war and we will surely have another one because our politicians are gutless from both parties and in fact both parties are not separate they are one in the same.

    • Dean says:

      Completely agree with Mark Heilbron regarding 2nd American civil was. I do believe that our Sovereign God is still in control but He allowed it to occur almost 115 years ago and it very weel may happen again. Keep you powder dry.

    • Greg E says:

      Whoa. The founders exhausted all avenues before declaring independence so i believe you are premature in your declaration. There are things we can still do and the first is to replace boehner with someone more competent and who will fight for our cause. Personally i see that person as Michele Bachmann.
      I believe it would be wiser and more realistic to have a “revolution” within the Republican Party than to think you can take on the White House.

    • Roger says:

      You are right there will be another Civl War, and need to start at the White House.

  14. Ted Quick says:

    The left is delighted with the election results. The rest of us recognize a horribly depressing reality ahead; the inmates are running the asylum, a recipe for disaster. We are worse off today than yesterday, tomorrow will be worse than today and so it will go. The give-me-more-free-stuff crowd still reigns and as they take more and more from the producers America will be additionally weakened. What the left is blinded to is that they are targets along with the rest of us and their denial does not protect them from an equally perilous future.

    Some of that infamous 47% really are “on the dole”, (either due to handicaps or conscious choice) and only they, along with BO and his circle-of-power, are the winners in this year’s election. The rest of us will carry a growing burden as this out-of-control regime demands ever more from a diminishing working force.

    America, now Obama’s America, is heading towards a day of reckoning. While 50% of our country blithely congratulates itself for reelecting the most dangerous president our country has ever seen, they, like lemmings, are following him off the cliff, while the rest of us agonize over the inevitable truth.

    I pray for wisdom and a way out.

  15. peggy says:

    Like an Alcoholic, we have to hit the bottom before we can sober up & recover. We haven’t hit our bottom yet – hopefully we soon will.

    If you want to help a voice who will speak for us – subscribe to theblazetv.com. Glenn Beck is willing to risk his livelihood & life to spread the word. We have to support him. You can afford the $5 or$10 per month for the cause.

    And I agree – get out of AARP – spend your $$ on Glenn & his family & staff to lead us out.

  16. Robert DiNubila says:

    Obama was re-elected with the same deception he was elected with in 2008. He and his ilk are guilty of what they falsely accuse others of. Obama and the progressive DNC play it right out of Saul Ailinsky’s handbook.

  17. KR says:

    I can identify with and appreciate the wealth of emotions behind the open letter and the comments. However, to respond in kind inflames, rather than resolves the problems. The Old Testament (in Daniel) says that it is GOD who raises and removes ‘kings’. The New Testament says (in Matthew) that we are to love ALL our neighbors as we love ourselves. And (in 1 Timothy 2) to pray for ALL those in authority, regardless of who they are. There are no powers in this country or anywhere in this world that are greater than love and prayer.

    • RPH says:

      KR. Thank you for your comment. The day of the election I confess being very discouraged. The past 4 years have been extremely difficult financially for my family and my business. But, remembering and understanding that God is the one ultimately in control makes all the difference.

      I confess I have been extremely lax in faithfully praying for those in authority as God has called his children to do. I know better and have known this to be true most of my life (almost 60 years old). This election is, for me, a wake-up call to be a faithful servant of my gracious Lord and trust him and demonstrate my trust in Him by praying for those in authority… as well as for thosel who want them in office.

      Are they not also in great need of a great saviour? How dare I look upon them as if I am better. Yes, I believe that many in authority are in fact enemies of our God. But all of us, ALL OF US who call upon the name of the Lord were also enemies of the Lord at one time. (See Romans 1-2:4) In His great mercy he saved us. May our God be merciful to us and too our enemies and open their hearts to hear the awesome Good news of the hope of life eternal provided to us through the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. This is what really matters.

      We love our country, as do those who live in other countries love theirs. But “our” countries are made up of flawed and weak people, of which I am one, in need not of a great country to save them and provide them with security but of a Great and merciful and gracious savior to secure their eternal salvation. And that he has done… if we will believe. If we will seek Him first, in all things… He will provide all we need. We must hold fast to this.. even in the midst of the storm.

      We are so quick to find fault with our leaders and with the “other half” of our country that has seemingly blindly followed these misguided leaders. But does the fault not really lie with us, who call ourselves followers of Christ? Is not the state of our nation in fact a reflection of our unfaithfullness to reach out in mercy, kindness, humility, love and forgiveness in the same way that our Lord reached out to us who have enjoyed his great mercy? Is it not in fact due to a failure on our part to pray for those, all those, in positions of authority… regularly and faithfully, in deep humility and with thankfulness? I fear this is the real truth. So often I have moaned and groaned and felt near hatred in my heart toward those in positions of power and authority. Yes, the choices they have made are deeply burdensome to us but our God is greater and they, those we all to often are ready to through into the flames of eternal judgement, are also in desperate need of a Savior, just as we who call ourselves christians were and are.

      Oh God, forgive us who have sinned by failing to pray for our leaders and have looked down our self-righteous nose upon those who we were once like… sinners in need of a savior. Blinded by the lusts of our flesh, the lust of our eyes and the pride of life… Oh God, in your great mercy you forgave us and do forgive us. Please, oh God, save those in positions of authority, that we may all live in peace and that they may receive life eternal. for YOUR Glory and for our good in the name of Jesus I pray. May it be so.

    After a very depressing 2012 election — I was thankful to turn over the leaf of my Daily Calendar and read this quote:

    “Never confuse the will of the majority with the will of God”. Charles Colson.

    Please pray for this nation!

    Thank you!

  20. Carolyn Lowe says:

    Tuesdays defeat of Romney, was a defeat of common sense, decency, logic, and economic principles. Any one with an ounce of these values knows that socialism and marxism will kill our country. Obama is a hoax, however, a very appealing one to the ‘takers’. In retrospect, why would anyone vote for a dignified man who says that thru hard work and ingenuity the American dream can be yours. Why not vote for the guy who says anyone with a dime more than you has stolen it from you and I’m going to take it from him and get “revenge”. Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, not sharia, however, one of the Ten Commandments says ‘Do not covet your neighbors property”. Obama is not a Christian so he does not adhere to Christian principles.
    As a former small business owner, the onerous regulations will surely kill all business, thru skyrocketing energy prices, whether fuel for your trucks, or fuel to heat your factory – something planned by Obama and his people. The union bosses said on Wednesday that by 2016, there will be no ‘right to work” states. They may bite the hand that feeds them, there may not be any business to unionize!
    As a senior, SS should be reconfigured, as well as Medicare. As long as Democrats, and the media, demagog this issue, it will not be restructured, something badly needed. Eventually we will be Greece, nor worse.
    Our Founding Fathers were wise men, only allowing property owners to vote. If the ‘makers’ were the only voters, the ‘takers’ would have not taken over our country.
    As a grandparent, I look into the faces of my little grandchildren, and desperately want the American dream for them, I hope and prayer that 11-06-2012, does not go down in history as the day the USA died.

  21. DrJCA1 says:

    Throughout history great men have said that big government is not in the best interest of the people and that when the common man realizes that he can vote himself a largess of money, that society is doomed. since half of this nation is on some type of government social program, we are truly doomed.

  22. William Evans says:

    Mr. Obama is fixing to pull a Hugho Chavez on the America people.

    • George Colby says:

      Amen to that!

    • dottie says:

      Too many people in this country don’t know who chavz is. We have learned to be very compartmentalized. Our major tv networks don’t report any news that might broaden our understanding of what is happening in other parts of the world unless it benefits this administration. We all better pray for all of us.

  23. Joanb says:

    We’re screwed! This country has bigger problems then obama. His plan is right on track and his followers can’t get enough of him.
