  • As of today, the Rasmussen Reports indicate that Barack Obama’s approval rate has an Index rating of –14. Twenty-eight percent of America’s voters strongly approve of Obama’s role as president and forty-two percent strongly disapprove of his role as president.

  • The Presidential Approval Rating is calculated by subtracting the percentage of those who Strongly Disapprove from the percentage of those who Strongly Approve. It is updated at 9:30 a.m. Eastern everyday.

  • Overall, 48% of voters at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance and 51% generally disapprove of his actions.

  • Regarding government anti-poverty programs, 33% of voters say these programs are at least somewhat effective and 62% say they are not effective. According to Rasputin Reports, 43% believe government programs actually increase poverty in America.

  • Likely U.S. voters who favor repeal of the new national health care law comprise 61% of those surveyed, including 50% who strongly favor its repeal.

At the time the Declaration of Independence was written and signed by 56 brave men who had put their lives on the line by putting their signatures on that document, roughly 1 in 5 of those living in America wanted to remain British subjects. This twenty percent of opposition was a substantial amount of resistance, which possibly aided or may have spied for the British. But America succeeded in being its own ruler against all foreign and domestic adversity.

It is possible that history has reached 360 degrees and that Washington, DC has become to us what eighteenth century Britain was for the majority of the American colonists. The Tea Party movement speaks for itself and they have staggering numbers of people who all feel the same way. There is a well-distributed urgency with concentrated pockets across America to dethrone every current Senator and Representative and to replace them with plumbers, mechanics, farmers, firefighters, and numerous other realistic people.

While that is probably an implausible possibility at its full scope, this is still America and everyone has a right to challenge his or her dreams to a fair game of reality. Washington needs reform as much as health care, immigration, or any of the other current hot topics. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, taking one step at a time, there is much change to make, but the most important change right now is to get Barack Obama out of office.

President Obama has to compromise his radicalism in this first term and appear to be at least somewhat rational for the opportunity to be re-elected. It will be in his second term, if he can pull off another term, when there is no third term to lose, that he will show his true colors and offer some real change that will scar this country for generations.

I am in no position to prove my theory of Obama’s potential second term but I firmly believe in its destructive aftermath. There is no way to prove or disprove any political theories, but we do have history to use as a tool to help us avoid repeating disasters and to continue ideas that work. The American spirit has worked since the day this great country was formed and we seem to be slashing our own tires on the vehicle of freedom and conservatism that keeps our constitution in tact.

2,017.1 miles to go.
