Do you REALLY believe this is going to get better?…I’ve got news for you. It isn’t.
In the past, a deaf ear and a blind eye was turned to those sounding the alarm about the excesses of government, it’s abuse of power, and it’s growing intrusion in the lives of American citizens. The media dismissed…and STILL DOES, to some extent…those warnings as sensationalist, conspiratorial, and simply rooted in hate for President Obama.
In the past six months or so, we’ve had lies about Benghazi, lies about the IRS and it’s tactics, lies about the government monitoring the press, and NOW we find the National Security Agency added to the list! That’s right! Seems the NSA has been expanding the scope of mining the data of millions of phone calls placed by Verizon customers!
The single most frightening aspect of all of this is the indifference of the American people. Now, there are those making an effort to fight this ever growing pattern of abuse by the Obama administration. But, by and large, it seems to be ignored. Ignored by those that this serious injustice is perpetrated upon! The press, for the most part, plays down the Justice Department’s obtaining the phone records of the Associated Press. And a large portion of the American people don’t even seem to be AWARE of what’s happening to them!
Alabama tea party figure, Becky Gerrittson, got it right (see yesterday’s post) when she pointed out that the government no longer knows its place and we are ALL in danger of losing what this nation stands for!
Barack Obama’s response?… simple, vague lip service. Why doesn’t he say and do more?…Because it runs counter to his political agenda and his core beliefs. THAT’S WHY! Yet he presents himself as unattached to any of it. If you’re foolish enough to buy into that premise, I fear for your future and your family’s!
The Obama administration has effectively turned the nation’s citizens into enemies of the state. Nevertheless, outrage is tempered, if expressed at all. Every day the federal government is exposed for tactics which should have the American people fuming. Have we become that complacent? that jaded? If the answer to that is “yes”, then we are finished as a people. Our entire experiment in liberty has been in vain. It’s been a fraud and a sham.
I’m not ready to believe that! Are you?….
