Why is Obama a bad president? Okay, let's do a review. He doesn't support foreign democracies such as Israel, and instead panders to dictatorships and apologizes for our own principles. He passed a socialist healthcare bill, he doesn't support individualism, personal responsibility or working hard for what you want. Instead, he wants to take the wealth from people who work and give it to those who simply don't. He has never held a job in the private-sector, let alone the fact he has never done any work at all. He racked up a ton of debt. Most importantly, WE DON'T EVEN KNOW HIM!
In my opinion, I think he's a socialist in the sense that he has a severe anti-colonial view of the world, and to be quite honest, I'd respect him a whole lot more if he came out and told the truth about what he believes in. But that is the dilemma...socialists have no integrity, because whether they know what they support is wrong or not, the facts of reality will not sway them from the mysticism they've enveloped themselves into.
What do you mean we dont know him? Can you elaborate on how a socialist is mystic?
We don't know where Obama was really born, nor do we don't know anything about his college grades. There are two types of socialists. One uses guilt to get people to self-sacrifice voluntarily, and the other uses blatant force to bend people to the will of their desires. Both act under the premise of collectivism, which is not only false, but evil because it doesn't believe in free will, individual rights, and personal responsibility. That is mysticism. They evade reality by creating a fantasy of forced unity. They think the government can pull anything out of thin air.
He was born in Honolulu.
His "birth certificate" may say he was born in Hawaii, but there is a paper from Colombia University that says he was born in Kenya. Which one would you believe?
I believe the birth certificate, an official document contemporaneously signed and prepared by witnesses to his birth, as would any rational person.
The Columbia article, if I am thinking of the same one as you, was produced 30 years later, is not an official document, and is not first-hand (and in fact is likely at best third-hand).
