Maine's new
governor

Meet
Maine 's New
Governor
 --- In case you haven't
heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your
mind!
 


 
The new Maine
Governor, Paul
LePage
 is making New Jersey 's Chris Christie look timid.
He isn't afraid to say what he thinks. Judging by the comments, every time
he opens his mouth, his popularity goes
up.
 


 
He brought down the house at
his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said,
"You're on notice! I've inherited a financially troubled State to run.
Observe...cover what we do...but don't whine if I don't waste time
responding to your every whim just for your
amusement."
 

 
 
 
During his campaign for
Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling
because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his
family to Bar Harbor and AcadiaNational Park for a long Labor Day holiday
and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn't talk to the
fishermen. LePage replied, "I'd tell him to go to hell and get out of my
State." The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in
the pre-election poll.
 



 
The Martin Luther King
incident was a political sandbag, which brought him national exposure. The
'lame stream' media crucified him, but word on the street is very
positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK Day visiting
black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he would meet
with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the prison. The
NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely that he
refused to participate in any MLK events. He read it in the paper for the
1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went
ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before
running the NAACP release.
 



 
He arrived at that event
& said in front of a TV camera, "If they want to play the race card on
me they can kiss my ass", and he reminded them that he has an adopted
black son from Jamaica and that he attended the local MLK Breakfast every
year that he was mayor of Waterville. (He started his morning there on MLK
Day.)
 

 
 
He then stated that there's
a right way and a wrong way to meet with the Governor, and he put all
special interests on notice that press releases, media leaks, and all
demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said any other group,
which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom of the
Governor's priority list!
 

 
 
 
He then did the following,
and judging from local radio talk show callers, his popularity increased
even more: The State employees union complained because he waited until 3
P.M. before closing State offices and facilities and sending non-emergency
personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior Governor would often
close offices for the day with just a forecast before the first flakes.
(Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the taxpayers about $1
million in wages for no work in return.)

 
  
LePage was CEO of the
Marden's chain of discount family bargain retail stores before election as
governor. He noted that State employees getting off work early could still
find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he put the State employees on
notice by announcing: "If Marden's is open, Maine is
open!"
 

 
 
He told State employees: "We
live in Maine in the winter, for heaven's
sake, and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job
in Florida !"
 

 
 
Governor LePage symbolizes
what America needs; Refreshing politicians
who aren't self-serving and who exhibit common
sense.
 


 
THE LAW
IS THE LAW!
 

 
I really love this
one.
 


 
This is one of the better
e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around
the USA several times
over!!!!! HERE
IS WHAT Governor LaPage said,
 


 
"THE LAW IS THE LAW So "if"
the US government determines that it
is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so
be it.
 

 
 
And "if" that same
government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on
a government installation, then, so be it.
 

 
I say, "so be it," because I
would like to be a law abiding US citizen

 
I say, "so be it," because I
would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make
good decisions.
 

 
I would like to think that
those people have the American public's best interests at
heart.
 

 
BUT, he said, "YOU KNOW WHAT
ELSE I'D LIKE?
 

 
Since we
can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in
Government buildings, I don't believe Government (Federal, State and
Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas
celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from
many facets of American life.
 

 
I'd like
my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter.
After all, it's just another day.
 

 
I'd like
the" US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday,
Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays." After all, it's just
another day.
 

 
I'd like
the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about
getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another
day.
 

 
I'm
thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government
offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter.
It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other
day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically
correct."
 

 
In
fact...I think our government should work on Sundays (AFTER ALL, It was
initially set aside for worshipping God) because, AFTER ALL, our
government says that it should be Just ANOTHER
DAY...."

 
What do you all think???? If
this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop
giving in to the "minority opinions" and begin, once again, to represent
the "majority" of ALL of the American people.
 

 
SO BE IT....Please Dear
Lord, Give us the help needed to keep you in our country! 'Amen' and
'Amen'!
 

 
If this
gets around the country a few times, I believe we all will see a better
day!

The Architect of Destruction





This very strong stuff. It may not be suitable for some. It may be too much for others. It is what it is: an horrific indictment.

There are some gifted people who have the ability to put into words that which most of us are thinking. Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and retired to Richmond, VA, in 2000. Free from the nine-to-five grind of writing for employers and clients, she began writing political commentary to please herself and express her convictions.

The Architect of Destruction

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-D42fNFNJ0u0/UcxGxB-5OoI/AAAAAAAAZ8M/gGrjZ_PmU_4/s720/obama-looks-angry.jpg

By Maureen Scott

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and
 disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America . Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where
 there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with
 deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of " America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet?

 
Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march-by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free.

 
He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

 
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2EU1H4kQUlg/Ucw9gRSI7lI/AAAAAAAAZ7s/PxXJO5DdaBU/s400/obama-mad.jpg

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn't really
 understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary,
 heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many.

 
Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego.

 
He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

 
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-p6VcKVp2xhg/UcxHU6g0ObI/AAAAAAAAZ8U/F0m9DpJSmRc/s560/obama-angry-8.jpg

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America , rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter").

He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions.

And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights,
 over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

 
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bCWSc-uAXP8/UcxE0w9cZ4I/AAAAAAAAZ78/oVxTo0MigVE/s300/obama-angry.jpg

· Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

· Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the
 citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

· Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause
 a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation
 between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

Fox Bashers Take Heed







Media Critic: Fox News 'Far Better Watchdog' on Obama Than 'Any Other' TV News Outlet


In a Tuesday articleBaltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik examined the reason behind Fox News beating every other TV news outlet in the ratings – including NBC, ABC and CBS – during November 4 midterm election coverage: "...it's time to think seriously about what that says about Fox, CNN, MSNBC, the state of network news today and the role TV plays or doesn't play in providing us with reliable, trustworthy information."
Zurawik offered one possible explanation:
I think one of the reasons for this latest evolution of ratings dominance might be that Fox was a far better watchdog on the Obama White House than any other TV news organization. It took the heat and the blowback from an administration that showed an enmity for the press not seen on Pennsylvania Avenue since the dark days of Richard Nixon, but it stayed the course. And now with viewers seeing the contempt this administration had for them and the truth, they respect what Fox did the last six years.

He warned that competitors overlook Fox's achievement at their own peril: "Much of the media establishment seems bent on ignoring the incredible ratings success of Fox News....Step One in assessing this sea change is for the media establishment to admit the dominance of Fox News today. Ignoring its success doesn't make it any less real."
He particularly took the fellow cable networks to task: "...CNN barely did better than the we-lost-our-credibility-in-our-slavish-devotion-to-Obama MSNBC. That's pathetic."
Zurawik called for real analysis of the development:
...we need to start seriously trying to figure out how and why it has come to pass that Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly matter more to Americans on election night than Brian Williams, Scott Pelley, George Stephanopoulos, Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitzer – way more than the latter two.
After crediting FNC's success on its status as a "watchdog" on the Obama administration, Zurawik briefly noted the standard attack line against Fox:
Or maybe, it's what some critics of Fox say: That those who watch the channel only want to hear one side of the story, and that's all that Fox gives them. The implication here is that Fox viewers are stupid, to borrow an offensive term that Jonathan Gruber, the administration's $400,000 adviser on Obamacare, used to describe American voters.

How to Destroy America - In Eight Easy Lessons


Another excellent email that I received that needs to be read by all Americans.  One of these days, I'm going to learn how to move these things so they won't be so narrow - but not now, I'm too busy with my jewelry...do go check out my website, Lindasudimack.artfire.com, and if you see something that you have to have, call me because I can do better on the price...we are moving, once we sell our house, and I don't want to move finished jewelry.


Remember, the man who wrote this was a fairly liberal person - not a flaming conservative(like me)...and he is concerned about the fate of our great nation, as am I.








 
 
Wherever you stand on this issue, please take the time to read this; it should wake you from your slumber on this important truth.
       
We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant.

Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, D.C., filled to capacity with many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia", explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
       
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America.
       
The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.’”
              
"Here is how they do it," Lamm said.
        
"First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: ‘The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.’ Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims."
       
        Lamm went on:
       
"Second, to destroy America, invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds."
       
"Third, we could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance, but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.' Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."
        
"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."
        
"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority placation."
       
"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E. Pluribus Unum" -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will "Balkanize" America as surely as Kosovo.
       
"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bi-lingual/bi-cultural country, having established multi-culturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."
       
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson's book 'Mexifornia.' His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."
        
There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America. Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."
       
Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation, and the future of this great democracy, is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.
      
If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you. NOTHING is going to happen if you don't!

Muslim Michigan






Okay - another email that I just had to share.  I almost had trouble believing this even though I knew that Michigan had the largest Muslim population in the U.S.  This bogles the mind,at least it did mine. Sorry about the way that it's set up - but my computer skills are still lacking.  Have a great time and come check out my jewelry at Lindasudimack.artfire.com sometime....

Well, it's part of the
instructions for how to apply for food stamps in the great
state of Michigan in Arabic!! 

  
Read  on: 
  
I actually called
the Michigan Dept . of Human Services to  check 
this out and it is
true. 

  
Have  we gone completely nuts!! 
THE  CAMEL'S NOSE
IS OFFICIALLY IN THE TENT IN MICHIGAN !!! 

Muslim  men are
allowed to have as many as 4 wives. Many Muslims have
immigrated into  the U.S. and brought their 2-3-or 4
wives with them, but the U.S. does not allow  multi
marriages, so the man lists one wife as his, and signs the
other 2 or 3 up  as extended family on welfare and other
free Government  programs! 

  
Michigan has the
highest population of Muslims in the  United
States.

When President Obama
took office the United States paid several millions of dollars
to have a large number of Palestinians 
, (All Muslim),
immigrated here from Palestine!  Why? We don't pay
for other persons to immigrate here, and I'm sure that some of
those Muslims moved into Michigan with the large current
number of Muslims already established  there. 

  
So  now in
Michigan when you call the Public Assistance office you are
told to  “Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Spanish, or
Press 3 for Arabic”! CHECK IT OUT  YOURSELF - Here is the
number     1-888-678-8914. 

  
Every time you
add a new language to an American program it requires an
additional  number of persons fluent in that language to
process those persons who refuse to  learn English in
order to live here at an additional cost to the taxpayer!
Why  are we even allowing persons to immigrate here who
cannot provide for themselves and then putting them in our
welfare system?

Press 3 for Arabic! 
This is quite
alarming!!! This seems to have happened clandestinely, or as
far as I know, because no public announcement or opportunity
to vote on this was offered to the American people. They're
just adopting an official stance, and very likely using
tax-payer money for it, in various capacities, without public
knowledge or approval.
The  following
link takes you into the State of Michigan Public Assistance
page, 

(as in Food Stamps
etc). You won't have to scroll far before you see the
assistance-letters options for ... (get this) ... English,
Spanish, and ARABIC!!!  When  did the ARABIC
option sneak into our culture? We don't do this for other
cultures, except those that speak Spanish!  Will we soon
have to listen to our governmental offices, stores, and other
venues offer us the option of "pressing  3 for ARABIC?" 

  
Check  it out for
yourself.

It is  outrageous! The camel's nose is literally now

Lou Holtz on America Now



Excellent article by Lou Holtz that covers very well what our country is going through right now.  He hits many nails on the head with this  one.  Please share, this needs to be seen ! ! !



                                                          They are right, there are two Americas.  The America that works, and  the America that doesn’t.  The America that contributes, and the America  that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don'ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support  themselves, contribute to society, and others don't. That’s the divide in America .  
 
It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility.  It’s about  a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.  
 
That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it. 
 
The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.”  He noted  that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher  incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.  That is the rationale of thievery. 
The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat.  That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.  
 
It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a  fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.  
 
The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a  culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope.  The president’s  premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful–seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of  their choices.  Because, by and large, income variations in society are a result of different choices leading to different consequences.  
 
Those who  choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.  
 
Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income.  You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college –  and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education.  
 
You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course.  Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.  
 
My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do.  There is significant income  inequality between us.  Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but,  our lives also have had an in equality of effort.  While my doctor went to  college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than  mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his  wealth?  No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.   
 
It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom.  The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail.  There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your  pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy.  Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and short sighted decisions. 
 
Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort
 
The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get."  
 
Obama would turn that upside down.  Those who achieve are to be punished as  enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.   Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster  equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other.   America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts. 
 
It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization. 
 
What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism.  He fomented division  and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political  benefit. That’s what socialists offer.  Marxist class warfare wrapped  up with a bow. Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
