Why Didn't Anyone Ask That Before?

What is anti-colonialism and what does it have to do with the 2012 American Presidential election? Dinesh D'Souza's Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream explores that and so much more about our 44th president.

D'Souza is a political commentator, public intellectual and author who is currently the President of The King's College in New York City. He served as a policy advisor to President Ronald Reagan. He has done a magnificent job or researching and documenting this book.

It builds on his previous book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage (which I also thought was a very interesting read), upon which the movie 2016: Obama's America, the movie, is based.

D'Souza believes that another four years will allow Obama to finish the job he has started in his first term, that is to further diminish America's economy and her role in the world. He suggests Obama's ideology is global justice which, to him, means a redistribution of wealth and power away from America and towards the rest of the world.

But it is the building of the story and the documentation - with literally a tsunami of evidence - that is so compelling. D'Souza is a brilliant guy and that seems so evident as you read this book.

I wish everyone would read this, consider the questions and decide for themselves. Whether you like Obama or not, whether you'll vote for him or not, this books vets him as he should have been vetted prior to his election in 2008.
