The people have spoken: ‘Obamacare’ must go
In my previous blog about Barack Obama we saw that before taking over the presidency Obama had serious problems left by Bush, and the Americans put their trust in him so that he could change the terrible situation in The USA. Unfortunately, Obama was unable to fulfil what he had promised and now the Americans have been constantly complaining. Please, read the text below and you´ll see how they are feeling regarding to it.
As are millions of my fellow Americans, I am extremely angry, outraged and devastated by the Democrats’ unbelievable arrogance and disdain for “we the people”. Despite our screaming “no” from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our throats. Please forgive me for using the crude expression, but it is very appropriate to describe what has happened: “Don’t urinate on me and tell me it’s raining.”
Democrats say that their mission is to give all Americans healthcare. The Democrats are lying. Signing Obamacare into law against our will and the constitution is tyranny, and step one of their hideous goal of having as many Americans as possible dependent on government, thus controlling our lives and fulfilling Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America.
I keep asking myself: how did our government move so far from the normal procedures of getting things done? Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the constitution to further his agenda? I think not.
Ironically, proving that America is completely the opposite of the evil, racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being, progressives used America’s goodness, guilt and sense of fair play against her. In their quest to destroy America as we know it, progressives borrowed a brilliant scheme from Greek mythology. They offered America a modern-day Trojan horse, a beautifully crafted, golden, shiny new black man as a presidential candidate. Democrat Joe Biden lauded Obama as the first clean and articulate African American candidate. Democrat Harry Reid said that Obama uses a black dialect only when he wants to.
White America relished the opportunity to vote for a black man, naively believing that they would never suffer the pain of being called racist again. Black Americans viewed casting their vote for Obama as the ultimate affirmative action for America’s sins of the past.
Then there were the entitlement loser voters who said, “I’m votin’ for the black dude who promises to take from those rich SOBs and give to me.”
Just as the deceived Trojans dragged the beautifully crafted Trojan horse into Troy as a symbol of their victory, deceived Americans embraced the progressives’ young, handsome, articulate and so-called moderate black presidential candidate as a symbol of their liberation from accusations of being a racist nation. Also like the Trojan horse, Obama concealed the enemy hiding inside.
On Sunday 21 March 2010, a secret door opened and a raging army of Democrats charged out. Without mercy, they began their vicious, bloody slaughter of every value, freedom and institution we Americans hold dear, launching the end of America as we know it. Wielding swords reeking with the putrid odor of backroom deals on votes, the Democrats landed a severe blow to America and individual rights by passing Obamacare.
The mainstream liberal media have been relentlessly badgering the Tea Party movement with accusations of racism. Because I am a black Tea Party patriot, I am bombarded with interviewers asking me the same veiled question: “Why are you siding with these white racists against America’s first African American president?” I defend my fellow patriots who are white: “These patriots do not give a hoot about Obama’s skin colour. They simply love their country and oppose his radical agenda. Obama’s race is not an issue.”
Recently, I have come to believe that perhaps I am wrong about Obama’s race not being an issue. In reality, Obama’s presidency has everything to do with racism – but not from the Tea Party movement. Progressives and Obama have exploited his race from the rookie senator’s virtually unchallenged presidential campaign to his unprecedented bullying of America into Obamacare. Obama’s race trumped all normal media scrutiny of him as a presidential candidate. Obamacare forces all Americans to purchase healthcare, and this is clearly unconstitutional.
No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of the American people and ignoring laws. President Clinton tried universal healthcare. Bush tried social security reform. The American people said “no” to both presidents’ proposals, and that was the end of it. So how can Obama get away with giving the American people the finger? The answer: he is black.
The mainstream liberal media continue to portray all who oppose Obama in any way as racist. Despite a list of failed policies, overreaches in the economy, violations of the constitution and deliberate, destructive pieces of legislation too numerous to mention, many Americans are still fearful of criticising our first black president. Incredible.
My fellow Americans, you must not continue to allow yourselves to be “played” and intimidated by Obama’s race or the historical context of his presidency. If we are to save America, the greatest nation on the planet, then Obama’s progressive agenda must be stopped.

A LITTLE TALK ABOUT GRAMMAR:
Adverbs are words that modify a verb, an adjective an another adverb. They tell us when, where, why, or under what conditions something happens or happened. Adverbs can also function as intensifiers, conveying a greater or lesser emphasis to something. Here they are removed from the text :
- “I am extremely angry”
- “Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the constitution to further his agenda?”
- “No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of”
- “Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America”
- “Ironically, proving that America is completely the opposite of the evil, racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being”
- “naively believing that they would never suffer”
- “Recently, I have come to believe that perhaps”
There are some useful kinds of Adverbs listed below. However, there are others which were not mentioned. So, I suggest you to search them on a grammar book so that you can be familiar with them.
1 : Manner
e.g. : Elena spoke quietly.
2 : Place
e.g. : Rey still lives there now.
3 : Frequency
e.g. : My mum goes to the supermarket every day.
4 : Time
e.g. : Olya left home very early this morning.
