President Obama has absolutely no interest in saving the United States of America as it was founded. He seems to have an equal distaste for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. His interest in America goes only as far as punishment for what he sees as American crimes against the world.

Mr. Obama is the progressive equivalent of a “universal soldier.” He has been molded and groomed for his assignment and is carrying out the left’s plan perfectly. More accurately, he seems to be buying his way through the plan, using American tax dollars. Imagine the unbridled joy being felt by the president and his confederates as they watch their plan become a reality. Within months, I believe they will collapse the dollar and attempt to begin the wholesale confiscation of not only guns, but retirement funds as well.

Mr. Obama’s new taxes on the “wealthy” will raise $60 billion to $70 billion, enough to run the nation for less than two weeks. So his desire to bring down the debt is false. He does have a midterm congressional election coming up in 2014, and conservative wins would be a disaster for him. That’s where the new tax dollars from the “wealthy” come in.
