The America we love is under siege from the progressive movement. Progressives want to tear down traditional American values and banish our Constitution. Why would they want to do this when Americans have historically enjoyed the most personal opportunity, the most personal freedom, the best standard of living and the best personal safety in the entire world? Traditional American values and governance under the existing Constitution do not allow progressives the ability to implement their utopian-based Marxist ideology, which ultimately gives them the power and autocratic control over American society they desire. One Americans Opinion is a hard-hitting patriotic book that exposes successful and non-successful progressive efforts by the federal government and others in taking control of our country since the Obama administration has been in power. The resulting implications for American society are comprehensively analyzed. The areas examined include: government operation, regulation, and policy; foreign policy and national security; the mainstream news media; and the political correctness movement overtaking our country. The in-depth analysis of this progressive activity will shock you. The book concludes by evaluating and predicting the future of America based upon the authors three years of research and his personal opinion.
A story of America is moving forward. And, NOW that word forward happens to be the slogan of the very man; that, Republican Willard Mitt Romney is trying to unseat. America the Party of NO has a man who will insist to see your ID, Birth Certifi cate, but wont release his Tax Returns, at the least 5-6 of them, so the voting electorate will know how to trust him. There are many perfectly legal ways for all weasels to get out of paying taxes. Especially, if you can afford armies of creative accountants to find them all. In our own Countrys Congressional Leaders there is: Nothing but, shameless lies and dishonor! That explains whats going on here. If election in November is to be decided on the several issues, Robme (the Romney) and (Ryan, the Lying) along with the remaining hostile Republicans should stay away from foreign policy this next four years. Even drifting into that realm risks reminding voters of Obamas clear advantage in leadership. America, Bush has been out of offi ce for almost 4 years, are YOU really going to continue to blame him? This is what the Republicans are saying! Honestly, if thats were the blame lies, absolutely! It wouldnt matter; even if, its been 100, 200, or 300 years since George W. the Idiot Bush has been out of office, there will STILL remain too many unanswered questions!
