Watch the movie and see what you think about his dreams

After hearing so much about the documentary “2016 Obama’s America,” I went to see it.

The movie was very informative and I now understand why so many of his documents have been sealed and why he was relatively unknown until 2008.

Barack Hussein Obama did not want anyone to know of his past, and after seeing the documentary, understandably so. Hoping to pass himself off as someone he is not, he has certainly succeeded.

Mr. Dinesh D'Souza, author and co-producer of the documentary, followed Barack Hussein Obama’s life from birth to present providing insight and information, something the mass media has failed to do.

It revealed the relationship and teachings of his father, passed to son and evidenced in Obama's own book, “Dreams from my father.”

Unfortunately the dreams Barack Hussein Obama got from his father are not and never have been the dreams of most Americans.

Our country is in a tailspin, both economically and in its foreign policy. And there will be no end in sight if we don’t make a change in this election.

I can’t imagine very many people who can honestly say they are better off or that the country is better off and stronger today than it was four years ago.

I challenge everyone to see the documentary “2016 Obama’s America” and ask themselves if Obama’s dreams for America are their own dreams for America.

  • Not a villain Not a villain

    Time was that we looked for heroes. Heroes of the make-believe variety have sold a lot of comic books. We also had real-life heroes like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, whose deaths the whole nation mourned.
    These days, we seem to be more interested in looking for villains. “Vote for me because I’m the good guy” has taken a back seat to “Don’t vote for him, because he’s the bad guy.”
