One of my favorite guests to book is Wayne Root. He’s smart, articulate, winsome, and has lived the American dream. He just wrote a piece for The Blaze that is a stunning but factual indictment of the Obama Regime.
Root points out:
The USA has had the unchallenged number one economy in world since 1872 (when we passed the United Kingdom). 1872. Eighteen hundred and seventy two. Let that sink in for a while.
That is 142 years of world dominance erased in only six years under one man’s leadership.
Under Obama’s watch, Canada just passed America for the crown of number one middle class in the world. This is the first time in modern history that America’s middle class isn’t leading the world. This was reported by the Obama-loving New York Times.
Under Obama, there are now more food stamp recipients than the number of women working full-time in America.
Under Obama, the average full-time male employee now earns less (adjusted for inflation) than 40 years ago.
Under Obama, there are now 70 percent more Americans collecting entitlement checks than working in the private sector (148 million “takers” vs. 86 million “makers”). This isn’t a conservative opinion. It’s a fact provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Under Obama, the number of working-age Americans not in the labor force is at all-time highs.
Under Obama, the workplace participation rate of men is the lowest in history.
Under Obama, the workforce participation rate of women is the lowest on record.
Under Obama, the workforce participation rate for black Americans is the lowest in history.
Under Obama’s watch, over 800,000 Americans dropped out of the job market last month. That’s almost one million people who have given up…in a month.
That’s almost one million dreams killed…in a month. What happens to all these people? Where do they go? How do they survive? Who will pay for it all?
This is a devastating legacy, and it’s all true.
There is little doubt the president and his political allies will pay a hefty price for this devastating legacy in this November’s mid-terms. That’s the good news. The bad news is many of the Republicans we will replace these Bolsheviks with don’t have the testicular fortitude it takes to push back on the damage that has already been done. At best, they’ll stop more new bad stuff from happening.
To turn the country back towards American Exceptionalism again will require a standard-bearer in 2016 with the smarts, charisma, and courage to make this case directly to the American people. Someone who has the same sense of urgency on behalf of liberty that Obama has had for statism.Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
