President Obama Should Heed To His Own Advice

Egypt’s recent turmoil of riots and general discontent has been reported in the news and now Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has decided not to seek reelection, but will not step down before his tenure is up. The US ally announced his decision on February 1st, which President Obama decided after speaking with President Mubarak on the phone to make a brief statement at the White House during a press conference. 
In the brief statement, President Barack Obama mentioned Egypt’s ancient past and appealed to the Egyptian public and the world that President Mubarak would like to be remembered as a powerful leader and peacemaker. President Obama stated:
He recognizes that the status quo is not sustainable and that a change must take place. Indeed, all of us who are privileged to serve in position of political power do so at the will of our people. Through thousands of years, Egypt has known many moments of transformation; the voices of the Egyptian people tell us that this is one of the moments, this one of those times.
President Obama also stated that the United States heard those voices demanding change as anti-government protests filled the streets of Cairo and other Egyptian cities.
How strange that President Obama would state such a thing when he had, before the recent congressional elections, ignored the will of the people when millions protested under the banner of the Tea Party movement that the kind of change Barack Obama had in mind for America wasn’t much like his campaign rhetoric. Indeed, after the election, he and Congress passed an increase in income tax that citizens have noticed took place in January of 2011 – making take-home pay smaller during a time of an economic slump and a recession where prices go up while income remains behind the cost of living, as well as continued high unemployment statistics. Instead of budget cutting, the Democratic Party controlled Congress continued their spend-and-tax programs since Barack Obama and his political cronies in Congress were elected. His actions have increased prices like fuel and insurance premiums and added more salt to the wounds of taxpayers by increasing tax rates under the unfair and intrusive income tax system.
Barack H. Obama still intends to run for reelection in 2012 despite his poor record as President of the United   States, people electing him despite his poor performance and brief tenure in the US Senate.
The constitutional republic architected by Thomas Jefferson and other Founding Fathers has slowly degraded America’s government into a nanny, statist state; which began during the Woodrow Wilson administration, accelerating during the FDR tenure, as well as NixonWJ ClintonGW Bush and now accelerated further by Barack Obama and his fellow sociocrats.
President Obama needs to heed to his advice given to Egypt’s president and listen to the will of the people – less government intrusion equals less cost and exercising rights given by the first ten amendments by the founders of our nation of states.
The new Congress of 2011 needs to address these important reformation criteria; making the Second Amendment rights the law of the land per the Constitution of the United and not allow any state government to deviate from it, get rid of the income tax system and replace it with a fair, flat consumption tax at the lowest rate possible between 10% and 15%, reduce its frivolous spending like less foreign aid (funds that are not loans), put a stop to the ObamaCare program that has been estimated to be $27 trillion by 2014, reduce government intrusion upon private sector responsibilities, et cetera.
