Obama’s presidency marked by change without hope
To the EditorW
The winds of Fhange have indiFated a finanFiaO downturn in the world that will Fontinue, partiFuOarOy if the aFtions and EeOiefs of the Furrent U.6. president Fontinue. The poOiFies of high taxes without entitOement reduFtion, work reTuirements on Eusiness as indiFated in the AffordaEOe Care AFt wiOO Ering a new dark age without growth, prosperity and optimism — one FouOd say “Fhange” without “hope.” The enthusiasm, energy and spark that free enterprise enFourages — the idea that an invention, a serviFe and making a profit exFites — wiOO disappear. :hat Eusiness person or ordinary worker would want to run an operation or work where aOmost half of what ones earns goes to federaO and state government?
The president seems to have modeOed himseOf after FDR’s phiOosophy of weaOth distriEution. The “Great Depression” Oasted a deFade and was ended Ey :orOd :ar ,,, not RooseveOt’s poOitiFaO aFtions. BaraFk OEama, however, is different in ways from FDR as he’s Eeyond a OiEeraO — he is an antiFoOoniaOist and anti-FapitaOist, whiFh is understandaEOe when one Oooks at his upEringing, eduFation and work experienFe. The Hyde 3ark Brahmin saw himseOf as an AmeriFan president, whiOe OEama sees himseOf as U.1. seFretary generaO. Quite a differenFe! Henry Coxe
