While Americans are largely in agreement that the Patriot Act is necessary to track down and destroy terrorists around the world who intend harm to Americans, it depends on which political party holds power in Washington to aim the gun. Republicans initiated the program to root out Islamic terrorists before they could strike. Under President Bush and Republicans in Congress and throughout the government the program worked very well.
Since Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 and then the presidency in 2008, the focus of America’s government has shifted from spying on America’s enemies to spying on patriotic Republicans. The Democrat controlled government does not encourage business growth but retards it through taxation and regulation, shutting down oil drilling and coal mines, “investing” in “green energy” companies whose CEOs take taxpayer dollars, close their doors, and retire to become Democrat lobbyists.
Obama is replacing everyone in government with his own kind, even down to the Inspectors General who are supposed to be the people’s watchdogs for government corruption. The automobile and medical professions have been put under his thumb. The EPA is wielded as a sword against any company that does not contribute heavily to Democrats. Congress makes taxes, regulations, and against companies that are Republican to intimidate them.
Moslem terrorists that were stopped under the Bush administration are successful under Obama, and their successful attacks are then marginalized as “workplace violence” in the Fort Hood shooting and as “rogue individuals” in the Boston Marathon bombing. They gerrymander voting districts to make Republicans a majority in a minority of areas, thereby insuring they obtain the majority of seats in Congress. (Prime example, Texas in 2000 voted 85% Republicans but only got 55% of congressional seats. After Tom DeLay abolished gerrymandering, in 2004 75% voted Republicans and they took 75% of congressional seats, and Democrats smeared him.) Voter fraud becomes the order of the day in swing states such as Florida where one county alone, Port St. Lucie, reported 146% of registered voters casting ballots for Democrats.
The Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder has violated numerous laws, refusing to prosecute blacks who commit voter fraud and intimidation, refusing to uphold the laws such as illegal immigration and the Defense of Marriage Act. While illegally selling guns to Mexican drug dealers to allow them to rampage along the border, he prosecutes states that do uphold immigration law and persecutes their lawmen. Obama assigned him to investigate himself for illegal wiretapping of the AP and FOX News journalists under the guise of “national security.”
Democrats have been exposed using blatantly using government agencies against the Tea Party, having the IRS deny tax exempt status so the government can steal away their funding. They target any group that says it is patriotic, teaches the Constitution, or is against high government taxation and debt. NSA phone taps on all American citizens rather than potential foreign terrorists helps to identify who is supporting the Republican Party and against Obama.
The president signs a UN Pact to initiate a national gun registry so they can find out which law-abiding citizens own guns that they intend to outlaw. He would grant amnesty to illegal aliens and have foreigners vote for U.S. leadership. Worst of all, he institutes policies to remove Christianity and Christians from the military and put people like himself in power over the American people.
Like all socialists throughout history, their intent is to seize the power, steal from those who create wealth and give it to their supporters. This is nothing other than the thieves being in charge. When criminals cannot prosper by breaking the law, they convince others to support them to corrupt the law.
The Right are the makers and the Left are the takers. Depending on which is in power decides whether people live in liberty or in slavery. Those who believe in the authoritarian rulership of the state to steal from those who produce and give to those who are not powerful enough to steal outright as did all 20th century socialists, the Soviets, Nazis, and Red Chinese, will steal power by hook or by crook. That is how an unaccomplished demagogue gains the presidency of the United States and keeps his position.
“When the president does it, that means it’s not illegal.” – Richard Nixon on Watergate
This is a true statement, if the president is a dictator and not a servant of the people. The law is based on right and wrong, but does not necessarily apply them. Government can make stealing legal and that’s the Democrat way.
