President Obama and others who think like him want to “fundamentally transform” the United States. Yet in order to become successful, many of these people took advantage of opportunities provided them by the United States — before any transformation had taken place.

Mr. Obama went to Columbia and Harvard university when he supposedly had no money. He later became a millionaire. He was elected president. The media even reported that he looked at a $28-million home in Hawaii to live in when his term of office is over.

Despite all those breaks and successes, Mr. Obama has moved to make the United States into a third-world country. His policies have led to inflated property prices, 9 million more people on food stamps and 19 million people who have stopped looking for work. Many others are working part-time. Seven trillion dollars have been added to our national debt since Mr. Obama took office. His fundamental transformation of this country is a disaster.

Mr. Obama and others who think like him should capitalize on what’s good about the United States, improve these things further and only make essential changes to enhance freedoms and opportunities for all Americans. This country will then continue to be the land of opportuity for all.

We don’t need ‘big government’ to tell us what to do. History shows that individual initiatives and creativity have made and will continue to make the United States great.
