In reference to Joe Wilson's anger during Mr Obama's Congressional presentation, Jimmah Carter said, "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American."
Calling Wilson's outburst racism is asinine.
There is huge resentment toward Mr Obama because he is an condescending, aristocratic, micro-manager. The man trifles with human life, witness his pro-abortion stance, where real children are slaughtered. Witness his attitude toward the sick and dying, with prognosis tests in the Health bill. If you have a poor prognosis, they will give you pain pills and watch you die. No other treatment.
The widespread and growing impression of Mr Obama is he is indifferent to ordinary people's concerns. This manifests in a number of ways, most plainly in the government control of health care access bill currently floating around Congress. There is no additional provision of health care, but there are a number of reasons why government will be able to deny access. There is a prognosis and a means test. Lastly, Mr Obama and the entire government are exempt from those provisions.
The essence of a republic is there is one law for all. The essence of aristocracy is the emergence of a privileged class. No longer are people all considered equal. If this persists, I cannot see this leading anywhere but civil war.
What the hell is happening to my country?
