Mr. President, it's time to face the music and help America to do the same. This Wednesday evening, you will give your State of the Union speech. And millions upon millions of us are wondering whether you will sugarcoat the truth again whether you will pad your performance over this past year or confess that the plans and path Washington is taking are plummeting our country deeper into the abyss.
If you convey the real status of the union, then you must confess that we are truly no better off (and much worse off in many respects) than we were when you first took seat in the Oval Office.
About this I'll give you credit: You have indeed fulfilled your promise to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." And you've done so in record-breaking speed one year, to be exact.
You've increased the national debt by a first-year record, from $1.6 trillion to more than $12 trillion total, with 2010 White House end-of-fiscal-year projections topping $14 trillion and end-of-decade projections topping $24.5 trillion even exceeding the gross domestic product projection for 2019 of $22.8 trillion.
You've compromised America's sovereignty by

Chuck Norris wrote the article I was going to write before I thought I was even going to write an article.
His speech is Wednesday night?
I have more important things to do, like watch Jason and Grant...
Reads almost like an indictment.
Can we call it the State Of The Failure Address?

Chuck Norris is a columnist and impossible to kill.
Obama is sending more troops to Afghanistan and still uses drones for target assassinations against the Taliban. But that doesn’t outweigh holding the KSM trial in NYC and Miranda rights for Abdulmuttalab
NARCISSISTS always sugar-coat the truth!
Oh darn, got a college basketball game to watch & then maybe watch the dust settle in the house!
Nothing is easier than the expenditure of public money. It does not appear to belong to anybody. The temptation is overwhelming to bestow it on somebody. But the results of extravagance are ruinous. The property of the country, like the freedom of the country, belongs to the people of the country. They have not empowered their Government to take a dollar of it except for a necessary public purpose. But if the Constitution conferred such right, sound economics would forbid it. Nothing is more, destructive of the progress of the Nation than government extravagance. It means an increase in the burden of taxation, dissipation of the returns from enterprise, a decrease in the real value of wages, with ultimate stagnation and decay.
The whole theory of our institutions is based on the liberty and independence of the individual. He is dependent on himself for support and therefore entitled to the rewards of his own industry. He is not to be deprived of what he earns that others may be benefited by what they do not earn. What he saves through his private effort is not to be wasted by Government extravagance . . .
It can not be repeated too often that the enormous revenues of this Nation could not be collected without becoming a charge on all the people whether or not they directly pay taxes. Everyone who is paying for the bare necessities of fool and shelter and clothing, without considering the better things of life, is indirectly paying a national tax . . .
Whenever the state of the Treasury will permit, I believe in a reduction of taxation. I think the taxpayers are entitled to it. But I am not advocating tax reduction merely for the benefit of the taxpayer; I am advocating it for the benefit of the country . . .
What I desire to advocate most earnestly is relief for the country from unnecessary tax burdens. We can not secure that if we stop to engage in a partisan controversy. As I do not think any change in the special taxes, or tiny permanent reduction is practical, I therefore urge both parties of the House Ways and Means Committee to agree on a bill granting the temporary relief which I have indicated. Such a reduction would directly affect millions of taxpayers, release large sums for investment in new enterprise, stimulating industrial production and agricultural consumption, and indirectly benefiting every family in the whole country . . .full text
