It’s becoming more and more difficult to watch the news anymore. The arrogance of our political leadership is absolutely stunning. They continue to lie, cheat and steal from the American people and then turn to us, with a straight face, and claim otherwise. If this were a game of poker, it would be one hell of a bluff. The attitude is nothing new, it’s been going on for years. As long as I can remember, we’ve been lied to. Bush had his role in it as well, as did every President before him. Honorable people no longer serve in Washington. Mr. Smith only visits now, with his hand covering his wallet.
Look no further than the recent health-care vote. A bill was not presented for our inspection, but we were told to trust them. The President was out on the stump pitching for it’s passage, but he had no idea what was in it, and we were told to trust him. Nancy Pelosi said in a speech that they needed to pass the bill before we could see what was in it. Trust us, they shout from the roof tops. Put your faith in our wisdom, we know better than you. And with upwards of 60% of the population opposing the reform, Congress passes the most sweeping legislative action since the New Deal. But it wasn’t even an honest vote. Bribes and threats were thrown around the Capitol like rice at a wedding. If it was so important to the future of America, why did the Democrats need to buy the votes from their own party? Make no mistake, Republicans couldn’t have stopped the bill even if they wanted to. And since not a single Republican voted for the bill, the opposition came from the President’s own party.
In the midst of the buildup, those of us opposed were called racists and hate-mongers and terrorist, all because we didn’t want to see another bloated government program push it’s way into our lives. Is it just me, or does it seem that the Democrats are looking for trouble? Like a bully poking his finger in your chest, trying to provoke a fight. Why else would the Democratic leadership march through the middle of protesters on their way to the vote? If the “tea baggers” were so dangerous, why risk a confrontation? And when nothing happens, they claim that racial epithets were yelled at them. But with cameras recording every step, not a single shred of evidence has come forth to prove their claims. Yet the media continues to carry their water. When video of real violence, like SEIU thugs beating the crap out of a black man who was protesting a town hall meeting, comes to light, nothing is made of it. No one says a word. Who are the dangerous ones here?
We are in very perilous times. History is being written before our eyes. History is being repeated before our eyes. Like in France in 1788 or the American Colonies in 1775, there is a political class that is ignoring the will of the people they are sworn to serve. They continue to force unwanted policies upon the populace. They are intentionally dividing the country into the haves and the have-nots. Pitting one group against the other with their rhetoric. They continue to spend money that we do not have, and willfully restrict the growth of the economic engine that fuels the American Machine. The budget has a deficit of multiple trillions of dollars and is projected to continue to grow for the foreseeable future. We are watching the destruction of our culture, our country, our way of life and the future we had hoped to pass on to our children. They are the ones being saddled with this mess, unless we do something now.
The people in power now are the same ones who burned the American Flag during the 1960’s. They cavorted with Communists and praised mass-murdering dictators. They fight for the rights of cop killers with more vigor than they give to the protection of unborn children. It’s your life, do what you wish, but leave me alone to live mine. How can they profess to love a country and hate everything that country stands for? Because of their leadership, we are no longer a land of opportunity. A place where people from all over the world would risk life and limb to come to. A place where they could give their family a better life, their children an opportunity to succeed and where they could make their own fortune following their passion. The lights in the shining city have been turned down. We no longer carry the beacon of freedom for the rest of the world to follow.
Just days before the election in 2008, then Senator Barrack Obama said “We are just 5 days away from fundamentally transforming America.” Into what, you might ask. What is it they have planned for us? I believe the plan is much more insidious than we want to think about. They can’t be this dumb and make this many mistakes. These are very smart people who have been planning this course for at least 100 years. It looks like all their efforts are coming to fruition. I can’t help but wonder if this is how the citizens of Rome felt as it burned. Grab your fiddle, Barrack. America is burning.
