The truth can be disturbing. Who wants to find out that they had been hoodwinked, right? I know I don’t like to find out that what I thought or believed was a lie. Yet at times, it is necessary to point that stuff out even if people’s toes get stepped on.
Kevin McCullough has done just that with his book No He Can’t. In this book, he shows how President Obama got elected, how he has not kept his campaign promises and how he is headed this country down a path that the founding fathers would probably be turning over in their graves if they knew. And I agree whole-heartedly with him (I am a conservative. So conservative that most of the so-called conservatives are too liberal for my tastes)
This book scared me. It scares me that leaders of the largest free country in the world feel that they have to apologize to every other country because of how great we are. That they can change the vernacular and stop calling terrorism and radical Islam by those names and make it socially unacceptable to not use those terms. That edicts and memos have gone out when attacks happen on our soil (Ft. Hood shooting anyone?) saying that it wasn’t an act of terrorism and that no one should look into the connections of it, even though the proof of it is sitting right out in the open. Mandating and overhauling the nation’s health care system to the point where now we would be in the streets if we paid for insurance. Leaving the Prime Minister of our greatest ally in the mid-East sitting alone in a room and being two hours late for that meeting (aside from being just plain rude, it is disrespectful to the inth degree).
And don’t get me started on the economy. Taxing small businesses within an inch of their existence, making it extremely hard to start one, let alone stay in business, trying to force cap and trade (which the companies will just pass their new taxes onto the consumer, hello) and things like that. As much as people think they want businesses to pay more in taxes so they don’t personally have to, it doesn’t make sense. Businesses just pass the cost of their taxes on to the consumer of their goods and services, that’s all, so the consumer has to pay for it in the end. On top of paying their personal taxes, sales tax, property taxes and such.
As much as I agreed with this book, it was still a disturbing read. I really think that everyone, no matter their political leanings should read this book. Those on the side that our President can do no wrong to see that really, he is a human being and those on the total opposite end of the spectrum to see that yes, he has done a few things right.
I received a copy of No He Can’t by Kevin McCullough through Thomas Nelson as a part of their BookSneeze program in exchange for my review. All opinions are mine and mine alone and no other compensation was received..
