Weeks ahead of taking his first term of office, Barack Obama stated that we were only weeks away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.
And what a transformation it has been.
We’ve seen the first black President reduce race relations to their lowest levels since 1992 (when the L.A. race riots were occurring). We’ve seen a historic number of African-Americans fall into poverty – and a surge in food-stamp usage all across the board. We saw the slowest economic recovery since the 1950s (which Obama calls “saving us from another great depression”).
And don’t even get me started on the national debt. The man who once blasted George W. Bush’s additions to the national debt as “un-American” has spiked the debt to levels that Bush could’ve never even imagined.
Oh – and it gets worse. As the Washington Examiner reports:
The number of illegals seeking asylum to gain easy access to the United States has jumped 900 percent in less than 10 years, greatly expanding the Immigration population receiving Social Security, school loans, green cards, welfare and other taxpayer funded services, according to figures from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
While about 8,000 mostly Latin Americans in 2009 sought asylum, the number is expected to reach 80,000 or more this year, according to a projection from the Center for Immigration Studies.
Things have gotten so crazy that Mexico is deporting more Central American illegal immigrants than we are!
The surge was sparked by a freeing up by President Obama of the restrictions to those requesting asylum. Now they are let into the United States while they pursue their asylum request.
According to a study by the Heritage Foundation, in 2010, the average unlawful immigrant household received around $24,721 in government benefits and services while paying some $10,334 in taxes. This generated an average annual fiscal deficit (benefits received minus taxes paid) of around $14,387 per household.
With numbers like that, no wonder the national debt has soared under the Obama administration!
And liberals want to make it worse. When liberals give illegal aliens amnesty, the number of welfare programs they’ll qualify for will only increase (and I’m sure liberals will even create a few new ones for them to ensure that they’ll be voting Democrat).
Hillary Clinton is campaigning on continuing the Obama legacy – and that alone should be reason not to vote for her.
