On his Wednesday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin opened by framing the upcoming presidential election with a tough description of President Barack Obama.
According to Levin, the author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America,” Obama is setting up future generations for a tough time, earning him the title “child abuser.”
“The truth is, ladies and gentlemen — the truth is, if you’re a parent or a grandparent, this election is not about us,” Levin said. “It’s not about parents and grandparents. This election is about our children and our grandchildren. Now, we’ve lost perspective. We’re losing our focus. The president of the United States, as I have said before, is the greatest political child abuser in modern American history.”
The reason for that, Levin explained, is that government spending and debt, at 100 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), will put the country in a vulnerable position when his children and grandchildren are older.
“We talk about the debt, which is almost $16 trillion, that’s 100 percent of the gross domestic product,” Levin continued. “That’s over 100 percent of all goods and services produced by our economy in any given year. We talk about the unfunded liabilities, which I estimate to be over $70 trillion now, some estimate it to be over $100 trillion. It’s mind-numbing. Now the fact of the matter is, those of us who are in our 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s — we’re going to be dead and gone when our children and their children are going to have to deal with this. All these politicians you see on TV today, they’re going to be distant memories, if they’re memories at all. They’re going to be gone — all this doublespeak, all this political gamesmanship.”
Levin made a plea to his listeners, explaining that with all that in mind, this election was what was important or there would be a different type of society in the future.
“We have to do these things,” he added “And even more. That’s the politics of it. We have to save our society. That is our culture, our economy, our rule of law. We have to pay these on to our children, and our grandchildren, or they’re going to live in some kind of a tyranny.”
