Obligatory Obama Disclaimer

Given the fact that I write articles dealing with liberty and freedom, no matter how careful I try to be, I figure at one point or another someone will accuse me of being an “Obama-basher”. So I figure I’ll just get it out of the way and explain right now, before I get too far into this blog, that I am NOT an Obama-basher.

I have no personal problem with Barrack Obama. In fact, I sort of feel for him, being a dad of two girls, just like me. He’s gotten himself in-between a rock and a hard place, trying to be president of the United States in one of the most turbulent times in recent history. I can’t imagine trying to do that and keep a healthy relationship with your family at the same time. That being said, I have an almost universal disagreement with Obama’s political ideals and policies. But not because he’s Obama and definitely not because he’s a black man.

My problem with Obama is the same I have with any big-government politician. If you believe the answer to society’s problems is more government, I’m going to disagree with you 100% of the time. I don’t care who you are.┬áThat goes if you call yourself a liberal, conservative, moderate, Democrat, Republican, Green Party, independent, or anything else. I don’t care if you’re president, a congressman, senator, or an alderman in Podunk USA. And I don’t care what the color of your skin is, what country you were born in, who your parents are, or any other such nonsense. My disagreement with Mr. Obama and every other big-government politician is purely idealistic, nothing more, nothing less.

I believe in the power of free people to solve their own problems and know that Big Government causes more problems that it can ever solve. Big Government is contrary to the ideals and principles that the United States was founded on and we need more people to realize that. So I’m going to continue to decry bad government whenever I see it, no matter who is promoting it and no matter who gets offended by it.

Any questions?
