"Obama's America": A Condensed, Grossly Inadequate Review of Dinesh D'Souza's Documentary

It is rare that any film, even a documentary, occupies itself with presenting an extended argument. However, Dinesh D'Souza concentrates on this task in "2016: Obama's America." As a seasoned debater, D'Souza is able to smartly and carefully lay out the case against Barack Obama's second term. This movie does not waste time on mere conjecture, and uses Obama's past in conjunction with his own words and actions in order to paint a more complete picture of a man who prefers-- for good reason-- to remain an enigma. Briefly, the documentary argues that his core convictions-- those of anti-colonialism-- are fundamentally opposed to a flourishing, free, America. The evidence of this socialist spinoff is everywhere: high taxes, decreased military funding, antagonism of the wealthy, unconditional favor shown to troublesome regimes at America's expense, and so on. There is much at risk; if this well-researched documentary is correct, America is in grave danger. Please watch it, then consider and test what is presented. If you find that D'Souza is correct, then vote accordingly. Given what we know of history, the American experiment is not likely a repeatable one, so let us endeavor to preserve it as long as possible. As Ben Franklin warned, we are a republic, if we can keep it.
