Narcissism Spells Obama

I want to be a famous Broadway star.

Does it matter that I can’t sing very well?

‘ shouldn’t, should it?

Not anymore, anyway…

after all, America knowingly elected an 'intern' to run our nation and, as he’s destroying our nation bit by bit…

a lot of people still think ‘he’s just wonderful.’

So, with that in mind, I [really] think it’ll be a cinch to manipulate people into thinking I’m a lot more talented than I am because…

Reality is really only about perception, isn’t it?

Mmm… looking at our country, that’s pretty darn apparent…

except there’s just a teeny, tiny difference between my bogus fame and Obama’s presidency…

my experience, or lack of, wouldn’t really hurt millions of people, however…

Obama’s has and will.

Penning this post, I wonder if anyone really understands what the “American Dream” really is, or…

worse yet, if it has died.

Second by second, our government is growing while America has been turned upside down. Those in DC haven’t a clue what patriotism is nor do I believe they care.

But…

they [our government] can’t destroy the spirit of those of us who truly love this nation because it us who are the true Americans.

Not too long ago, I happened upon an article written by Chuck Baldwin entitled, “Can You Imagine This Country.” In it he writes:

We hear much today about the American dream. By "the American Dream," most people mean buying a big house, driving an expensive automobile, and making a lot of money. However, this was not the dream envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Remember that, for the most part, America's founders gave up their material wealth and substance for something they considered of far greater worth. Unfortunately, this hedonistic generation knows little of the kind of sacrificial spirit personified in the lives of America's patriarchs.


In the minds of the founders, liberty--with all of its intrinsic risks--was more desirable than material prosperity, if that prosperity was accompanied with despotism or collectivism. So strong was their desire that they were willing to give up the latter in order to procure the former for themselves and their posterity.



How dare Americans today refer to material gain as "the American dream." It is not! It is the freedom to honestly pursue one's goals that should be celebrated. Material gain is only a fruit of freedom, not its root.

Perhaps Obama wants to be recorded in history as not only the first black American President but also the greatest.

For me, unfortunately, only one word is synonymous with this man: narcissism.
