Hi. Im Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. I told you so. Forget ISIS. Forget al-Qaida. Forget Vladimir Putin. Forget China. The worst threat to America is Barack Hussein Obama.
Ive screamed from the highest mountains for almost seven long years now that we have a suicide bomber in the White House. Obama is divebombing our nations economy the same way that the Germanwings airline co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the ground in France two months ago.
Except this isnt one plane and a couple hundred souls. Obama is taking the entire American economy and all of us down with him.
Ive told everyone and anyone who would listen for almost seven years that Obama is following the exact plan he learned as my college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 83. The plan is called Cloward-Piven.
The plan is simple: To destroy capitalism and American exceptionalism, you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to a halt; full-time jobs are killed; businesses fail in record numbers; the middle class is murdered financially; the debt implodes; and the economy is overwhelmed.
Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked by a drug dealer on heroin, or crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is Americas drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency.
To make this plan work, Obama needs you hopeless, helpless, clueless and losing all faith in God, yourself, individualism, personal responsibility and capitalism. He needs you scared out of your wits and desperate. He needs you believing that only government can save you.
How does this end? According to Cloward-Piven, a majority of Americans wind up dependent on government; they vote out of desperation for whatever political party promises to keep the checks coming or, better yet, expand the checks. Then slowly, like boiling a frog that doesnt realize whats happening until hes dead, capitalism dies. The very same people destroyed by government are now dependent on government to survive; they beg government to save them. And that opens the door to a Big Brother socialist economic system.
Its happening right in front of our eyes.
You dont have to believe me. Just look at the evidence. The proof came in last Friday. The first quarter GDP growth was negative.
This is proof that the plan is working. The U.S. economy is in reverse. We are in quicksand, and were all drowning. Obama is taking us down like a suicide bomber.
These arent opinions. This is a fact. Now you just have to decide based on the evidence of a dying economy after almost seven years under Obama.
Is Obama an ignorant incompetent idiot, dangerous to himself and everyone around him, or a purposeful suicide bomber out to destroy America and capitalism? Because its either one or the other.
Here are the facts. The first quarter gross domestic product, which is the measurement of our economy, was just revised on Friday to -0.07 percent. This number is a disaster.
But this isnt some aberration or outlier. This is the entire Obama presidency. Obamas seven first quarters as president are at a combined average of -0.43 percent. Obama is the only president in the history of Americas recorded economic measurement to accomplish this.
Let me repeat: This is the worst seven-year record in the history of Americas recorded GDP.
Obama is also the only president in history to have produced four separate first quarters that were negative. We started measuring GDP in 1947. Obama is certainly one of a kind: a trendsetter. He is setting records for disaster and futility never before imagined in the greatest country in world history. And guess what? Were all going along for the ride. I hope you buckled your seat belt.
Yet no one appears willing to say out loud and on the record that something is very wrong, that this isnt normal.
No one is willing to say this isnt possible to do by mistake. No one is willing to suggest there is a madman a suicide bomber at the controls, taking our economy and country down just like that German pilot divebombed that plane into the ground two months ago.
Want more proof? The average first quarter GDP since measurements began in 1947 was 4 percent:
- Under Harry Truman, it was 4.5 percent.
- Under Dwight D. Eisenhower, it was 3.2 percent.
- Under John F. Kennedy, it was 4.9 percent.
- Under Lyndon B. Johnson, it was 8.3 percent.
- Under Richard Nixon, it was 5.3 percent.
- Under Gerald Ford, it was 2.3 percent.
- Under Jimmy Carter, it was 2.4 percent.
- Under Ronald Reagan, it was 2.1 percent (and that was because Reagan inherited disaster from Carter).
- Under George H.W. Bush, it was 2.9 percent.
- Under Bill Clinton, it was 2.6 percent.
- Under George W. Bush, it was 1.7 percent.
Under Obama, here are the seven first quarters:
- -5.4 percent
- 1.7 percent
- -1.5 percent
- 3 percent
- 7 percent
- -2.1 percent
- -0.07 percent
Let me repeat: Thats the worst record in recorded history. Thats the only negative average in recorded history. Thats the only time weve had four negative first quarters in history.
Whats the excuse? Winter? Cold weather in the first quarter?Really? So America didnt have winter under Truman or JFK or LBJ? Winter is a new phenomenon that only affects Obamas first quarter? Even more compelling, dont Canada, Russia and China have winter in the first quarter, too? So how come their GDP growth isnt affected by winter?
Heres the thing, folks. Economists are saying the second quarter doesnt look much better. Last I checked, there is no winter in April, May and June. So why is this quarter off to the same kind of start? Why did all of this economic decline happen while gas prices plummeted? Economists predict a windfall for consumers because of lower gas prices. Yet the economy divebombed, and consumer spending stalled even with cheap gas prices.
Its clear who and what is to blame. The who is a suicide bomber in the White House named Barack Obama. The what is Cloward-Piven. Obama has exploded spending, entitlements, dependency, regulations and debt to destroy capitalism and the U.S. economy. He has set world records in each of those categories: the most spending ever, the most entitlement spending ever, the most regulations and cost of regulations ever, the most debt ever created in world history. Cloward-Piven.
The facts are in. The results are in. No one could be this stupid. No one could be this ignorant. No one could produce a record this bad by mistake. It isnt possible. We clearly have a suicide bomber in the White House.
