Has Obama Been Helping to Restore America, or is He Just Another Warmongering Corporate Puppet?

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Boycott the Presidential Debates!“…

Rayn: Vote Robomney! Four More Wars!

Jonas A.: Yup…I did last night…was watching episodes of The Equalizer on youtube…lol

Brian J.:  Except Obama wants less war, and he’s trying to actually fix the economy. Romney wants more war, and he’s a liar. At least Obama tries to tell the truth.

Rayn: “Obama wants less war,” Brian? What evidence do you have to support such a claim? His lip-service? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t really been keeping track of the things Obama “wants.” I’ve been far too busy paying attention to the things he DOES! And, so long as he continues this nation down Bush’s war path, he engages in MORE WAR, by definition. However, that’s not even the full reality of the situation! Obama actually escalated America’s war in Afghanistan, while also aggressively continuing war operations in Pakistan, and authorizing new military strikes against Yemen, Libya and Somalia. Therefore, he has unequivocally engaged the U.S. in EVEN MORE WAR:

Then, there’s the matter of Obama’s numerous threats to engage in even more new wars:

And, Obama sure did “fix” the economy… for the ultra-wealthy, that is:

Obama and Romney are BOTH PROFESSIONAL LIARS. Your assertion that Obama “tries to tell the truth” does nothing to alter this fact:

____________________________________________________

As an interesting side-note, Obama has authorized more missile strikes than all previous Nobel Peace Prize winners combined!

Brian J.: Right, but Obama kept his promises on getting out of Iraq, killing Bin Laden, and fixing the economy. He’s not just fixing it for the rich, he’s done good things for middle class as well. The unemployment rate is still going down. Yeah, Obama should be having less war, but I think it’s gonna get there, during his second term. But then the question becomes, is killing for a greater good, a necessary evil?

Brian J.: And what freedoms has Obama actually taken away in the last four years?

Rayn: Obama’s current war operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Uganda are not some small matter, so easily dismissed, nor is his war posturing with Syria and Iran. And, no amount of kept campaign promises by the President will eclipse the deadly situation that he has been escalating in the Middle-East and Africa throughout his administration.

Now, while Obama certainly did promise to remove combat troops from IRAQ… that was only because he intended to send them to war in AFGHANISTAN, instead!

Speaking on August 1, 2007 in an address to the Woodrow Wilson International Center in Washington, DC, presidential candidate Obama stated:
“The first step must be getting off the wrong battlefield in Iraq, and taking the fight to the terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan.”
(http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=58663)

In a July 20, 2008 interview on “Face the Nation,” President Obama said:
“It’s time for us to withdraw some of our combat troops out of Iraq, and deploy them here in Afghanistan, and I think we have to seize that opportunity. Now’s the time for us to do it.”
(http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=4275914n)

And, of course, as I cited in my last comment, Obama has more than fulfilled his murderous promise in Afghanistan:

However, in reality, Obama’s promises about “getting out of Iraq” are really just empty political rhetoric, as the American war and occupation of the foreign nation are still ongoing:

You stated the following, Brian:

“The unemployment rate is still going down.”

By who’s measure?

You also said:

“Obama should be having less war, but I think it’s gonna get there, during his second term.”

I don’t buy the Obama “Hope” hype, and I never did. Even on the campaign trail, he discussed a number of the new war fronts he would aggressively pursue in Bush’s fallacious “War on Terror.” You need only read my comment from yesterday, discussing Obama’s ongoing authorization of war operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Uganda, and combine them with the information I provided above, about US military presence in Iraq, for full clarity on his war position. 

__________________________________________________

You asked:

“The question becomes, is killing for a greater good, a necessary evil?”

That’s not the question I’ve been asking regarding America’s wars, but my answer to your inquiry is NO. I whole-heartedly agree with William Pitt, “Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” As far as I’m concerned, ritualistic human sacrifice and torture in the name of “war” is nothing more than ancient religion of death-worship, cleverly repackaged as “patriotism.”

As for your claims about the middle class and the economy, I’ll be happy to address those in depth, tomorrow, but in the meantime, I will repost this link, for now:

Corporate America Has Best Quarter in US History as Real Unemployment Rate Soars”:
http://acidrayn.com/2010/11/24/corporate-america-has-best-quarter-in-us-history-as-real-unemployment-rate-soars/

Brian J.: Again, in recent statistics, Obama’s unemployment rate has gone down to 7.8, and it’s probably still going down. More jobs are being created. And he would of gotten more jobs created, if congress didn’t veto so many of Obama’s bills. This country would be much better, if congress actually allowed Obama to have some power. And let’s face it, we were never gonna get out of Iraq. Obama just ended the war, but we’re gonna be there for many decades. This war will last for decades.

Brian J.: Obama is also a big supporter of women’s rights, Abortions, and gay rights. Because of Obama’s support for gay marriage, many gay people are coming out of the closet. And Obama even mentioned none-believers, which is a first. 🙂

Rayn: After you first mentioned unemployment rates going down under Obama, I replied with the question, “by who’s measure?” And, as I figured, you simply compare Obama to himself, which is no real measure, at all, when considering the fact that the unemployment rate was 7.8% when he first took office! And, it remained well above 9% throughout a great portion of his presidency, averaging to exactly 9.06%, so far:

As for “job creation,” let’s take a DEEPER look at employment figures in the US, to get a FULL picture of such claims. This will also help to reveal much more about the state of the economy, as well as the state of the middle-class:

Rayn: You asked the following, Brian:

“What freedoms has Obama actually taken away in the last four years?”

Here are some of the more widely-known efforts, a few done with bipartisan support from Congress (let us not forget that this country had a Democratic majority in the House for the first two years of Obama’s presidency, and that it only shifted in 2010, when voters elected the current Republican majority into power):

Brian J.: Obama also signed a bill, where if you’re suspected of being a terrorist, the government can kill you. With no trial at all. And that’s dangerous.

Brian J.: And I’m not denying that America still has a bad economy. But things are getting better very slowly. Obama would of been able to pass the jobs bill, if he had a congress that was willing to help him. The republicans kept vetoing the jobs bill that Obama wanted to pass. Maybe Obama could of done more, I don’t know. But you can’t completely blame Obama for not fixing the economy in a better way.

Rayn: You stated the following, Brian:

“Obama also signed a bill, where if you’re suspected of being a terrorist, the government can kill you. With no trial at all. And that’s dangerous.”

The legalization of extra-judicial Democide is definitely dangerous, but I don’t recall Obama signing any such bill… Perhaps you’re referring to his “Kill List” that I previously mentioned?:

If not, maybe you’re referring to the secret legal memos that the Obama administration wrote up to justify their already-committed murders against American citizens abroad:

Either way, since you know about our government’s extra-judicial murdering of American citizens, why did you previously ask me, “what freedoms has Obama actually taken away in the last four years?” Do you not consider due process and the ability to live free from murder “freedoms”?

Meaningless, in relation to the bigger picture. Why not mention the enormous $862 billion dollar “Stimulus Package” Obama passed back in February 2009 under the Democrat-controlled Congress, which was supposed to create jobs? Is it because the climbing employment rates soon reflected that the package was nothing more than another giant exercise in federal WASTE spending , as it did nothing to lower unemployment rates, nor did it create any significant number of good jobs, as intended? Of course, it also so did NOTHING to deal with the real issue behind the faltering economy: INSIDER FINANCIAL FRAUD!

“Maybe Obama could of done more, I don’t know. But you can’t completely blame Obama for not fixing the economy in a better way.”

I don’t “completely blame Obama for not fixing the economy in a better way.” I made no such point during our debate. I simply proved the message contained within the above graphic artwork that I shared. Besides, as I already said, Obama did, indeed, “fix” the economy… for the ultra-wealthy! He’s done more than enough to help the banksters, defense contractors, weapons manufacturers and other forms of corporate slime!

Brian J.: That’s true. And the poor will always suffer. It’s probably just how the system operates. We have to dismantle the whole thing, to keep poverty at a small percentage, where the middle-class are making good income, and the rich just get richer. Lol!
