Thread: List of what Obama has done

  1. #1

    Default List of what Obama has done

    I am a sort of Libertarian commentator to all my facebook friends. I constantly try to enlighten people via facebook, which usually ends with them becoming Libertarians or hating me (I have no liberal friends anymore )

    Anyways, I am looking for a list of things that Obama has done, either economically or otherwise, which is "bad" from a Libertarian standpoint. I understand that a list like that would be pages and pages long at this point, but Im just looking for something to get my mind going.

    Thanks!

    It may be easier to compile a list of what he`s done good from a libertarian standpoint....which is nothing,
    The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George. I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power. The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility, and out of self interest -- for himself, his family, and the future of his country -- to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state.

    Deployed American aircraft over the skies of Pakistan for bombing missions

    sent thousands of troops into Afghanistan

    violated his promise that all bills would be open for the public to view for five days before any action was taken on them

    has flip-flopped on promises for ending the debacle in Iraq

    has increased Government spying capablities

    I think the bailout nonsense speaks for itself.

    And this idiot has not even hit the 6th month mark. God only knows what else he has in store for us.

    raided medical marijuana dispenseries (sp?) in CA
    promised 5-day comment period on bills and didn't follow it (bailout package)
    reneged on promise to pull troops out of Iraq in 16 mos
    reneged on promise to keep lobbyists out of white house

    and, of course, warrantless wiretaps

    here's a site that supposedly tracks Obama's promises http://politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/?page=3

    of course, they don't call "troops out of Iraq" a promise broken, but it is worth a look

    Look for that Keith Olbermann video where Olbermann is hating on Obama for doing Bush's wiretapping dirty-work, and more intrusively. I posted it on my facebook wall. The one friend of mine who's a total commie is coming around to disliking Obama I think, even though there's no way in hell I'll ever convince him that libertarianism as a whole is good. But hating Barack Obama is a good baby step.

    That site might be kinda of progressive im not sure. I just say it is because they divided up broken promises with the word compromise.

    and some of the promises being fulfilled like doubling foreign aid are not necessarily good promises to begin with, but deciding what is good and bad is up to you.

    Oh yeah a huge tax increase on people making less than 250k. (cig taxes) doubled to pay for health care. Not really a fair tax when the tax is over 125 percent on that one thing. The poor and working class who smoke will suffer the most with that tax. Also its what they consider a "healthy tax". a slippery slope if you ask me. Next will be alcohol, soda and sugary items.

    Look up the Bush Doctrine I'm sure you could find some bullet points on Obama's List of Accomplishments!
    But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
    ---John Adam

    If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks, and the corporations which grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
    ---Thomas Jefferson
