Obama Citizen Of The World

Dear Friend,

During his recent speech in Berlin, Barack Obama tried to ingratiate himself to the foreign crowd by claiming loudly that he was “a citizen of the world.”

The problem is Obama’s self-proclaimed global “citizenship” appears to go well beyond just a rhetorical device to gain favor with a European throng full of pie-in-the-sky utopians.

It seems the Democrats’ would-be president of the United States of America really believes that the rest of the world’s problems, and approval, trump the interests of Americans when it comes to how we live our lives and where our money is spent.

While stumping for the support of his party’s leftist base, Obama proclaimed, "we can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times . . . and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK."

And now he’s putting your money where his mouth is.

A bill he has sponsored in the U.S. Senate, the so-called Global Poverty Act (S. 2433), would raise the amount of American tax dollars allocated to United Nations’ redistribution efforts to $845 billion.

That’s $2,500 from every American taxpayer, when many in our country already are struggling to make ends meet.

And if you think taxes and energy costs are high now, wait until Obama’s global energy and production taxes are made law by the Nancy Pelosi/Harry Reid-run Democrat Congress.

Is this what Pelosi meant when she said, “I’m trying to save the planet! I’m trying to save the planet!”?

Senator Obama and the Democrats don’t seem to understand that American prosperity is a result of the hard work of American citizens in a free market economy. And that the American people already are the most generous in the world when it comes to global aid.

Help us show Barack Obama that Americans don’t need foreign approval to lead their lives as they see fit, and that he ought to remember that he is running for president of the United States, not the United Nations.

While recently traveling through northern Uganda I stop at a road side shack for bottle water. The young man inside was obviously a Muslim and began questioning the groups Nationality. When I explained we were from Texas, USA. He began to very exited he said” You are from America? We like America, You vote Obahma we want Obahma to win.” This is just another example that if Obahma is not Muslim he certainly carries the Muslim vote, Even if it isn’t in this country. If that doesn’t make you worry this should .
While in Sudan I learned there are 500,000 Chinese soldiers disguised as oil workers. These soldiers are under instruction to not only take up arms to defend the oil fields but to defend the terrorists camps in the north. These are camps that one Obamha says does not exist. It is also a government that he supports and would sit down and have a communications with. 500.000 Soldiers just waiting for the chance to start fighting
