We are drawing to the end of 2015, and as we enter 2016 it is the final year of President Barack Obamas presidential tenure.
As Written By Allen West for Townhall:
The question then becomes simple, are we better off than we were and a year from now, will we be better off? Recently President Obama made the assertion to his faithful that he will be squeezing out all the “change” he can in this his final year. This is the person who said late in 2008, “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America.” Seven years later, what has that transformation meant to you?
Now, if you embrace liberal progressive socialism as a viable means of governance, then you are very well pleased. The policies of the past seven years, and the ensuing final year have been like a dream come true. However, we need be honest and assess what it has meant for the future of this Constitutional Republic. And if you reject the ideal of the American Republic, then President Obama has delivered — the dismissal of the rule of law and the elevation of the collective over individual rights and liberty.

Coupled with this ill-conceived agenda item is President Obama’s persistence in defending the indefensible Iranian nuclear agreement. This has been called Obama’s signature foreign policy accomplishment — his second term Obamacare achievement. Thanks to an inconceivable legislative move by the GOP controlled Senate and a filibuster by the Senate Democrats, the agreement did not even come to the Senate floor for a vote. It is an “agreement” that has no greater importance than the Munich accord signed by Adolf Hitler with Neville Chamberlain. And the Iranians have already violated the agreement with several ballistic missile tests. And worse even, Secretary of State John Kerry has promised the Iranians a visa waiver. Why? Because the Iranians are claiming they are entitled to such as per the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — an agreement that has comprehensively enabled Iran to become a regional hegemony.
Domestically, we are witnessing the unraveling of the …..
