President Obama has the most important speech of his Presidency on Thursday. A speech built around creating jobs and economic recovery. You want an economic recovery? You want jobs? Two magical words are needed to change the course of history. Two words change the future for millions of desperate unemployed Americans. Two words transform a depression into a boom. Two words motivate and inspire every business owner in America to create jobs. Two words free the U.S. economy from the current doom, despair, debt, depression, misery and malaise. Only two words need to be uttered by President Obama’s lips:


“I resign.”


Imagine an Obama-Free America.


Overnight 2 ½ years of pain are erased. Trillions of dollars and millions of jobs are brought back into the USA. Millions of business owners breathe a sigh of relief and begin to plan their recovery. Investors begin investing again, unleashing a torrent of buying and business expansion.


In Obama-Free America (OFA) Obama’s policies of demonization, persecution, punishment, and income redistribution are over. Jobs are created. Lower taxes are paid. Hope is restored. The American Dream is no longer a nightmare. The business of America is once again BUSINESS.


Overnight in OFA “the Obama Axis of Evil” disappears- no more is the country run by socialists, Marxists, and America-apologizers based solely on their tenets of taxation, regulation, government strangulation, unionization, litigation, and illegal immigration.


Overnight in OFA the waste of trillions of dollars on stimulus and corporate bailouts is over. The idea that unemployment checks and food stamps are good for the economy loses currency.


Overnight in OFA “Saving the Union” no longer means saving the teachers union, government employees union, and auto union. Losing billions bailing out auto unions is no longer called “a profit.” Pension plans for government employees are changed from defined benefit to defined contribution, so they pay for their own retirement. The National Labor Relations Board is terminated and the nation is no longer held hostage by radical union hacks and lawyers.


Overnight in OFA the euphemism “undocumented worker” disappears from standard usage and we restore the integrity of our borders. The Justice Dept ends the lawsuit against states for enforcing U.S. immigration law. No longer is it legal for non-citizens to collect entitlements and government aid.


Overnight in OFA the government treats its citizens with respect. The Constitution is in effect again. Power once again belongs to the people, not the government. We stop sending Nanny State police to close down lemonade stands run by kids. We stop sending SWAT teams to raid farms for the crime of selling raw milk, or guitar factories employing thousands to protect endangered wood in Madagascar.


Overnight in OFA we end the curtain of darkness against oil and energy exploration. We stop allowing environmentalists to impede our pursuit of energy independence. We remove the shackles from American energy companies. We encourage exploration of the plentiful supply of oil, shale, natural gas, and clean coal right here on American soil. We allow the building of nuclear plants and new oil refineries for the first time in 30 years and drive the price of oil and gas down dramatically, instantly improving life for every American.


Overnight we allow and encourage medical freedom. In OFA doctors are allowed to compete for patients. Insurance companies are allowed to compete for customers. Consumers are allowed to shop nationwide for the best policy for their family and unique situation. Tort reform dramatically reduces insurance rates, reducing the cost of medical care for every American.


In OFA we end the Environmental Protection Agency’s reign of terror against business. We end the Department of Education and the teacher union-sponsored destruction of America’s educational system. We end the IRS’s abusive practices against business owners and taxpayers. We end the FDA’s campaign against vitamin and nutritional companies. We end the ATF’s war against legal gun owners. And that is just a start.


Overnight in OFA the heroes of society are no longer unions, lawyers, IRS auditors, and government bureaucrats. The heroes are once again the people who made America the greatest nation in world history- small business owners, financial risk-takers, taxpayers, and job-creators. America is once again open for business.


In OFA it is cool to love and respect capitalism. It is cool to love Israel. It is cool to believe in American exceptionalism. Once again, it is morning in America.


Oh, and one more thing…in Obama-Free America, no President can play golf, if unemployment is above 7%. And Presidential (and Congressional) vacations are cancelled if the budget is out of balance, inflation is raging, real estate collapsing, or GDP is below 3%.


One man stole hope and prosperity 2 1/2 years ago. Now with the magical words “I resign” that same man can restore our country, our economy, and the American Dream.


“I resign. I resign. I resign.” Say it with feeling Mr. President. Say it like America’s future depends on it.


Because it does.
