For a nation to survive it must exist within the parameters of integrity. This applies not only to the leaders but to the populace as well. Napoleon said, “You cannot lead swine, you herd them,” and that is truer today than ever. The integrity of America is deteriorating and we have a president who has begun to consider himself a king, and he is herding the swine.
We have lost the concept of nationalism, and love of country. We have deteriorated into a ménage of angry tribes, each one wanting only what benefits them, not what benefits the nation. While our “king” (along with our news agencies and our entertainment media) continue to fawn on the individual ethnic segments of our society rather than promoting the concept of a united nation.
The president’s recent, flagrant application of executive action is nothing more than a usurpation of power. Never in the history of this country has a president simply ignored Congress, his constituents, and the nation to this degree, and forged ahead outside the parameters of the sacred document meant to bind and direct America.
Republicans vowed to challenge the president on his proposal to expand protections for people who recently entered the country illegally as children. But this blatant usurpation of power will come before the Republicans take over the Senate and the House. It is unlikely enough Democrats would choose integrity over party lines anyway, and the president will continue to direct the swine. The great problem is the precedence that this sets. We will have broken the mold of Constitutional integrity. In one lurching, horrible step we have gone from a republic to a benign dictatorship (and not really a very benign one at that.) Even worse, once the dam of consistency in government is breeched, we leave ourselves with an ugly precedence that can be drawn up and waved before the faces of Congress by any future president who feels his way is the only way.
The underlying element that gives this travesty strength is good old-fashioned greed. I doubt there is a single Democrat in the Senate who believes in his or her heart, that this illegal action by the president is a good thing for the future of our nation. But each one of them clings to their position of power with the mindless tenacity of rats on a sinking ship. To them there is no good or bad, or right or wrong. There is only the preservation of power and position.
Lest I sound too partisan, let me make it clear that this is equally true with most Republicans in The House, but I truly believe their course for America is truer to the original principals that this country was built upon – their eyes are not glazed by the concept of a great “Socialist Utopia.”
For anyone who has been truly paying attention, for anyone who has taken the time to investigate and not simply stare at NBC or CBS news occasionally, it is obvious that this man in our highest office has absolutely no love for this nation. He didn’t grow up here, he never once attended an American parade or celebrated a Christian holiday as a child. It is validated beyond question that his mentors as a young man were socialists, and his education and mysterious rise in politics were financed by socialists and Middle Eastern influences. He is surrounded by conscienceless power brokers who control most of America’s press – (i.e. George Sorros), and he is insulated from genuine investigation. (It took the man two years to produce a birth certificate – or that long to have it created).
Obama has virtually eradicated the previous commanding echelon of our entire Armed Forces (those who were loyal to America’s interests) and replaced it with a politically correct, pro Muslim, rabidly socialist montage of yes men (and women). The figures regarding the forced retirement of upper echelon officers in the Armed Forces is beyond astounding – but you hear little about it in the daily news (through other than one defiant network.)
Our president has done everything possible to delay any serious action against Iran and its development of nuclear weapons, while continually hamstringing our only true ally in the Middle East (Israel) and confounding every move they make to protect themselves and present the truth about Hamas and its Muslim fundamentalist maniacs. He bows to Saudi Kings, continually confers with Louis Farrakhan of America’s radical Black Muslims, has aided in the legitimacy of the Muslim Brotherhood here and abroad, is a staunch supporter of CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America, and wrote in his book, “The Audacity of Hope,” “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
This is the man, America, to whom you are giving carte blanch control of our nation in the form of continual executive action. Be careful what you wish for…
