Who Did the Americans Vote For?

The American voters didn’t vote for Republicans; they voted for the core principles of America: freedom and individual liberties. They voted for limited government, lower taxation, and reduced public spending, as well as a desire to return to America’s Founding principles.

Conrado de Quiros and the Obama-worshiping intellectuals in the Philippines are dead wrong. This is what you get when you ignore the power of philosophy, and by philosophy I mean a good one. A well-integrated philosophy for living on earth.

Lest I be misunderstood, I’m not saying that de Quiros and the country’s intellectuals who revere Obama reject or are not interested in philosophy. Every individual holds a certain philosophical viewpoint, but it is very important that one needs to define and understand his philosophy by means of conscious, deliberate process.

There’s this French intellectual and philosopher in the past century who was dead wrong in his judgment on the Iranian revolution. Michel Foucault, who is one of the most influential philosophers in our universities today, supported and even campaigned for the establishment of an Islamic regime in Iran. Now reality tells us that Foucault was  dead wrong. 

On Nov. 4, 2008, I wrote a blog entitled My Obama Worries, wherein I predicted an Obama victory. I stated the following:

However, I would like to let you know that Obama is never my bet for the U.S. presidency. I don’t know but I have some doubts in regard to his economic plans and political views. If Obama won the presidency, he won because of George Bush, because of his “change” mantra, and because he is “black.”

I am not a political scientist or analyst but I have worries concerning his political and economic aspirations. I was glad when a CNN viewer questioned Obama’s popular gospel of spreading the wealth. The viewer was an immigrant from Cuba who expressed her anxiety over Obama’s populist policy which, according to her, did not work under Fidel Castro’s leadership. Obama answered by saying that the ‘socialist’ depictions were cleverly and carefully crafted by the camp of McCain.

In January this year I stated that by electing Obama, America chose to perish. I wrote:

This is most expected. The character of Obama is the result of his premises. Obama is a collectivist. His administration’s main solution is to pour more oil into the fire so to aggravate the problem. Their solution is to loot or mooch more money from the taxpayers.

Did you not see that the bailout efforts would soon legalize looting? This is a form of institutionalized corruption perpetrated by the powers-that-be. To paraphrase Ayn Rand, the most wicked and corrupt leaders who rose to power promised the common good, and Obama is one of them. This year, America must be prepared for a horrible roller-coaster ride.

I wasn’t comfortable with Obama because of his ideological aspirations and philosophical belief. He is a Marxist and a collectivist. In 2007 I read an article he wrote entitled Renewing American Leadership. After learning that he admires Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and John F. Kennedy, I suspected that he had an agenda, which is what he’s pursuing right now: to change or renew American leadership.

In this article Obama wrote:

Such leadership demands that we retrieve a fundamental insight of Roosevelt, Truman, and Kennedy — one that is truer now than ever before: the security and well-being of each and every American depend on the security and well-being of those who live beyond our borders. The mission of the United States is to provide global leadership grounded in the understanding that the world shares a common security and a common humanity.

The American moment is not over, but it must be seized anew. To see American power in terminal decline is to ignore America’s great promise and historic purpose in the world. If elected president, I will start renewing that promise and purpose the day I take office.

It appeared that in November of 2008, the liberal media and most American voters didn’t pay attention to the socialist exhortations of Barack Obama. If only most Americans read his books and articles and listened to his public speeches, they would have known that their commander-in-chief is a Marxist, a racist and a black nationalist.

In his book “Dreams of My Father”, Obama wrote he used to carefully seek out Marxist friends:

“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”

This particular quotation explains why the incumbent President of the United States surrounded himself with Marxists, revolutionaries and and Mao-worshippers like Anita Dunn, Van Jones, Carol Browner, Cass Sustein, and so on.

For losing big in this year’s midterm elections, Obama blamed the economy. However, political and economic analysts like Nina Easton of CNN, which is sympathetic with Obama’s policies, simply laughed off his president’s remarks.

Easton wrote:

In his press conference today the president — pressed about public disapproval of his policies — repeatedly referred to an “emergency situation” that forced the need for a stimulus and the Detroit bailout. There’s a bit of déjà vu here: George Bush blamed his plummeting approval ratings on an unpopular war.

In fact, the economy was only part of the equation. Deep dissatisfaction with President Obama’s agenda — and especially healthcare reform, his signature achievement, and one that has nothing to do with emergencies caused by the financial crisis — fueled the intensity that has now given Republicans their biggest House majority since 1928.

Nile Gardiner, a Washington-based foreign affairs analyst and political commentator, also wrote in Telegraph:

The overwhelming repudiation of the Obama administration’s failing policies sends a clear message to the world that the American people will not accept the decline of the world’s most powerful nation. Now the hard part begins, and a very top priority for the new Congress must be reigning in the ballooning national debt, which the Congressional Budget Office predicts could rise to 87 percent of GDP by 2020, 109 percent by 2025, and 185 percent of GDP by 2035.

Since America was founded on the concepts of individualism, individual rights and liberty, it is not the country’s intellectuals who will save America. It is the American people who will save and reclaim the first constitutional republic in mankind’s history, and they just did it two days ago when they voted out Obama’s democratic allies in Congress and nearly controlled Senate by a narrow margin.

The American voters didn’t vote for Republicans; they voted for the core principles of America: freedom and individual liberties. They voted for limited government, lower taxation, and reduced public spending, as well as a desire to return to America’s Founding principles.

    It’s good thing to hear that the Americans learned their lesson and expressed that in their legislature election day. I hope this is the start in their return to their founding fathers principles.
