The apocalypse is here. You can’t hide under your desk once the four horsemen have arrived: Conquest, Famine, War, and Death, in the form of national debt, crippling dependence on government, extremism in the Middle East, and the suffocating grip of the bureaucratic state on every aspect of life. America’s problems were many years in the making, caused by both parties, and they will haunt us for generations to come–if we survive it all.
In Obama’s Four Horsemen, syndicated columnist David Harsanyi slams the Obama administration for its reckless handling of four massive problems that have mushroomed into a disaster of Biblical proportions. There problems may have taken decades to develop, but time has run out to ignore them. Harsanyi lays down the blunt, hard facts in his famous conversational and humorous tone, urging America to take notice now, before Obama uses his second term to make out path wholly irreversible. The challenges we face are grim:
- Under Obama, for the first time in history, the “takers” in out society outnumber the “makers.” George Bernard Shaw famously quipped, ” When you take from Peter and give to Paul, you can always count on the support of Paul.” Once the scales tip so that there are more Pauls than Peters, it will be too late to rescue America from the financial ruin and domestic violence and turmoil we’ve already seen in Greece.
- Obama has sat on his thumbs and looked the other way while forces abroad openly vow to destroy America and Western civilization. When American forces abroad have begged for help and stated in the clearest terms the urgency of the situation, Obama left them alone and unprotected to die. the next four years are more then long enough for the underground armies of Islamic extremism to rise up and bring their war to our shores.
- …and America will be more vulnerable than ever to their attacks due to out crippling sovereign debt to other nations, which hogties our diplomatic autonomu and bankrupts us from the very top levels of government down to the pockets of individual taxpayers. The national debt has emascualted American policy making, foreign and domestic, and Obama only seeks to shovel more cash from China and other nations that certainly aren’t lending out of altruism or love of American Values.
America faces a great upheaval as Obama heads into is second term. Obama’s Four Horsemen is a timely, provacative, and chiling expose on how we got here and what’s ahead.
