Some of this onslaught on the fabric of our country has been going on for many decades with only slight upticks in the level of activity over time. With the election of Barack Hussein Obama, all that seemed to change. The Progressives came out of the closet in full force bound and determined to begin ripping apart all that binds this great country. The election of Obama signaled open season on corporate America, the Constitution, the Rule of Law, Immigration, the economy, the national debt, and of course, healthcare and welfare.
In a recent speech, Obama used the phrase, “we the people” and went on to say that “we the people” are the government of this country as if to suggest that the “will of the people” is quite alive and well in this great nation. While that might appear the case, one only has to pay attention, look around, and compare the actions taken with the words spoken on a subject to realize that we are being duped and sold a bill of goods with each passing day.
If “We the People” had any real meaning today, then why are “We the People” stuck with something as outrageous as ObamaCare? More than half the people of this nation feel that this legislation has been rammed down our throats yet it stands as if to say, “You people don’t know what is good for you therefore the government must step in and brush aside the will of the people.” So how is that Mr. President, if, as you say, “we are the government”? In truth ObamaCare in nothing less than a masked distribution of wealth which will cause those who can earn money to have to bear the burden for all those who cannot or will not. Given the fact that more people today are on food stamps than in the workforce, the proposition is rather unsettling. Your leaders plan to buy their votes with your healthcare dollars in order to remain in power.
ObamaCare is like a child’s jack-in-the-box toy in that every time you turn the crank, something new and totally surprising jumps right out at you. With few exceptions, all those surprises are bad…very, very bad. In fact, the employer mandate to provide healthcare under the legislation is so bad that the Obama Administration has delayed the 2013 implementation of it and rescheduled that phase to begin after the 2014 mid-term election cycle. What does that tell you about the Left’s sensitivity to holding on to voters and likely attempting to take back both sides of the Congress? Ask yourself…if something is that bad as a whole, then why on God’s earth would you implement it at all?
The Gang of 8 has pushed through their immigration legislation in the Senate and is hoping to attain the same success in the House. Bogus advertising all over national radio is touting this new plan as a cure for what ails our countries immigration. In truth…that is a total lie. What ails our existing immigration plan is the lack of enforcement. There are plenty of teeth in the existing policies but those who run our government have no intentions of enforcing those policies. Ask the question, “Why can we not have border security before any plan for amnesty is enacted?” You won’t get a viable answer. We have everything we need in place at the moment to secure our southern border including the funds authorization from previous immigration acts to continue the process of building fences and raising security but Congress has stopped those measures and will not allow them to continue.
The Republicans who have joined into the support for this new immigration legislation do so with the belief that being soft on amnesty will gain them the love and support of the Latino and Hispanic voter or might I say “soon to be illegal immigrant voter”. As intelligent as these people such as Marco Rubio might appear, they are being used to gain approval of the legislation. Then, the hammer will fall. The security measures will be flushed down the toilet and the cry for immediate processing of up to 15 million illegals into a citizenship role will go forth from the Democrats. Here again, your tax dollars are at work to fool you into believing that someone cares about your welfare and the future interest of this country when everything they come up with says just the opposite.
As I mentioned earlier, food stamp programs are running rampantly out of control and continuing to cycle upward. Now, this confirms we have a lousy economy where people cannot find adequate work or it says that the gravy train operated by the federal government is so good that few give a damn if they ever work again. That mindset is further reinforced by the fact that the lifeline mobile phone program courtesy of the federal government will top $ 3 billion dollars in cost this year. This is a program in which those already on food stamps and in government subsidized housing may all get a free mobile phone with 300 free minutes a month. There is no accountability for the use of the phone and many are sold to pawn shops or on the street. The program is heavily abused and no monitoring really exists to manage its growth. Once again, here is Washington buying votes with your tax dollars.
Our military forces are under attack through the sequestration process which Obama put into place as a booby trap for the Republicans after the 2012 elections. This was Obama’s ace-in-the hole to get his unlimited debt ceiling and an open checkbook with no accountability to Congress. Keep in mind that the Constitution requires Obama to submit a budget to Congress each year for approval….a function in which the president has been woefully lacking and clearly in violation of the Constitution. Instead he virtually ignores the process and continues spending money or giving it away.
The American taxpayers just shelled out over $100 million dollars to send Obama and his entourage on a trip to Africa. The main thrust of that venture was giving away even more money….something in excess of over $7 billion dollars which will primarily focus on expanding the electrical grid in Africa. Coincidentally, Obama’s buddy, the CEO of General Electric, will likely be a big beneficiary of those dollars in the end. Keep in mind that we currently borrow 42 cents of every dollar our government spends and that proportion will likely grow in the future. On the other hand, while Obama can spend and hand out all this money, the White House is shut down for tours, our military troops in Afghanistan are relegated to cold meals; civilian employees of the Defense Department are starting to see pink slips handed out. Obama blames sequestration yet was given the ability to pick and choose where the impact of sequestration would be felt. He opted out on that and let it go to the places which would inflict the most pain upon human beings in the hopes of building more political animosity toward the right. Here, once more…your tax dollars at work tearing down this nation from the inside.
This nation has more than three more years to endure the wrath of this administration toward the framework and fabric of this country. If the Democrats gain a majority hold in the House seats and hold on to the majority of seats in the Senate in 2014, then we will see all these situations and more grow even worse as the flames of destruction are fanned with the tax dollars of hard-working Americans who deserve better from those who are elected to serve the “will of the people”. Today we are only disappointed but in the future we will likely be devastated as we watch our country being dismantled bit by bit with far too few elected voices rising up in opposition.
