Fundamentally Transformed Illustrated?

On the campaign trail in 2008, Michelle Obama made headlines when she uttered that she had not previously been proud of America.  But when she was campaigning in Puerto Rico, the future First Lady revealed her vision of how America had to fundamentally change "for the children" of course.

After five and a half years of the Obama Administration, certain policies illustrate how our President is seeking to fundamentally transform America.

A quote attributed to Mahatma Gandhi popular with the "Si, se puede" crowd is:  "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."  But considering illustrated Obama actions, one wonders.  Gutting of our space program to be Muslim outreach; transforming the IRS into a political weapon against domestic "enemies"; Obamacare rules which entice businesses to convert employees into part time workers to dump them into public health exchanges; and overwhelming the U.S. Border Patrol with a flood of OTM illegal immigrants along with hamstringed rules which basically turns them into babysitters.

 It would seem that a Pogo-ism is more apropos: "We have met the enemy and it is US."

We are not destined to such flummoxing funny paper fortunes if enough of us can be drawn away from digital bread and circuses and act upon what is truly important and consistent to our time tested values.
