There are many who believe that Barack Obama was motivated to be president of the United States to enact a radical agenda to transform the nation. Many believe his actions and language reveal he is against American exceptionalism. (“Understanding the meaning of American exceptionalism is indispensable for anyone who wants to understand what it has meant to be an American,” says Charles Murray.) Others believe he wants to even the playing field, making the U.S. just one power among other developed nations.
The following are eight objectives a person would have to execute to effectively diminish the unique status of the USA as the leader of the free world:
1. Become the U.S. President
Although the U.S. Constitution counterbalances the office of president with Congress and the Supreme Court, the president still has enormous influence as the leader of the free world. The president would have the ability to set foreign and domestic policy; appoint members of the Supreme Court as well as numerous federal judges; and be able to push certain major initiatives through, even without an official vote of Congress.
Truly, becoming president would be a logical goal for any person wanting to be in the greatest position to radically diminish and/or transform our nation.
2. Alienate Global Allies
Since the world is flat and we live in a global economy, a person desiring to diminish the status of the U.S. as the world leader would intentionally disappoint its greatest allies. In the Middle East, they would want to alienate Israel; in Western Europe, they would want to disappoint powerful economic nations like Germany.
For example, President Obama has had a very cold relationship with the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, because of his position on the Palestinian issue and his weak posture toward Iran’s plans for developing a nuclear arsenal.
Furthermore, the NSA scandal brought about by Edward Snowden revealed the U.S. has been spying on all its Western European allies, even to the point of listening in on the mobile phone calls of German President Angela Merkel! This, of course, has greatly damaged our relationships with several of our most important allies in major parts of the world, not including the great damage this scandal has done to our international credibility and other nations affected by illegal NSA probes.
3. Run Up the National Debt
Another thing a person would do to diminish the power of this nation would be to weaken it economically through debt financing. To quote Peter Schiff: “The crisis is imminent. I don’t think Obama is going to finish his second term without the bottom dropping out. And stock market investors are oblivious to the problems. We’re broke. We owe trillions. Look at our budget deficit; look at the debt-to-GDP ratio, the unfunded liabilities. If we were in the Euro zone, they would kick us out.”
4. Push the Nation Away From Biblical Values
The 10 Commandments (Ex. 20) were given by God as a blueprint to bless a nation. Nations that adhere to these commandments will experience prosperity. For example, all the nations most affected by the Protestant Reformation became the world’s leading innovators; the U.S. was blessed primarily because it became only the second nation in history (other than Israel) to be founded by a covenant with God (the 17th-century Mayflower Compact).
Unfortunately, President Obama has directed a policy turn toward the further secularization of the U.S.—for example, the Pentagon’s stance against biblical Christianity, forcing businesses like Hobby Lobby to fund abortion and contraception through Obamacare and his refusal to allow the Justice Department to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.
