What if the president decided one day to take a trillion dollars from the
taxpayers and give it to people who are not working because they need it
because they don't have enough to secure the things they want in life? Would
the Congress just say, "OK"?
What if the president one day announced that he was going to have his
national security team begin spying on each and every American and keep
records to use against citizens if and when he believed they might be
turning their support from him? Would that be something the Congress would
just stand by and let happen?
Finally, what if one day the president simply said he was going to make laws
and bypass Congress because he has a pen and phone of his own? Would
Congress timidly capitulate to him and let him do it? How far does it go?
Of course it is widely known these things have already been done by the
current president. The Congress is not off the hook either. The Democrat-led
Senate stonewalls any attempt to make the president accountable for his
actions of using his "pen and phone." The Republican-led House is little
better, in that they constantly buckle to his resistance in making himself
and his Cabinet members accountable for the truth. He is a catch for sure.
But he did warn us in the very beginning he was going to
change America." I heard him in person in Indianapolis say those words. He
was going to grow the economy "from the ground up." He was (is) a community
organizer without too much other experience except following after
socialists and communists like Saul Alinsky, a Chicago-born socialist whose
"entire life was devoted to organizing a revolution in America to destroy a
system he regarded as oppressive and unjust." He was a "community organizer,"
which is the same term employed by his most famous disciple, Barack Obama, a
term Obama uses to describe himself.
Just before the election of president in 2008, Obama said this:
"We are five
days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." As
you know, the rest now is history.
Perhaps the one thing I fear the most is his seemingly disregard for the
Constitution of the United States. His disregard for the laws of the country
while he and his family spend multiple millions of dollars on lavish
vacations, completely thumbing their noses in the face of each American, is
It may not be as rosy on the other side of the ledger either. The following
list of people is made up of Republicans. Many pundits and talking heads in
the media are pushing various people on this list as the Republican
presidential nomination choice for 2016. Look through the list; I am sure
you recognize each of the names on this list. See if you can spot something
unusual about the names on this list.
Sen. Marco Rubio
Sen. Rick Santorum
Rep. Paul Ryan
Gov. Chris Christie
Sen. Rand Paul
Sen. Ted Cruz
Gov. Jeb Bush
Gov. Scott Walker
Gov. Sarah Palin

As you examined this list closely, you likely would have noticed
that all of the names on this list are politicians except one. Dr.
Ben Carson is the only person listed who is not a professional
politician who has been a part of the political landscape over the
past dozen or more years.
For sure, the list on the Democrat side of the ledger is not any
better. The fact is, we have almost exclusively reserved the most
powerful positions in our nation for politicians only. Now,
admittedly, the Democrats did choose a novice in a junior senator
from Illinois who never did anything in the Illinois Senate or the
United States Senate before he was catapulted into the nomination
for president of the United States. His major accomplishment was being a community organizer.
His record in the office he now holds has provided evidence enough
that the Democrats and America likely made a poor choice, whether they admit it or not.
We need to understand that the government is taking control of the
freedoms Americans have possessed from the beginning. They are
taxing us into such debt that even now some teenage kids in schools
across the country are protesting their lunches that have been
mandated by the government, and when those teenagers grow up, they
will also be paying for the follies of today's politicians for the
rest of their lives. We are experiencing corruption, lying,
immorality, theft and simply failing to do the job they were
supposed to do. They are taxing everything under the sun, making
those with jobs pay for everything, and have changed the national
philosophy of the American dream and working to achieve that dream
to one of total dependency and redistribution of wealth. This has to
stop if we the people are going to have our freedoms back and stand
tall in America once again!
We have a new election cycle approaching for the 2016 presidential
election. Perhaps it would be prudent for the American people to ask
themselves if the rule rather than the exception should continue to
be the re-election of politicians to the highest positions in the
country. If they decide to cast their votes for citizen-leaders,
let's hope they settle on someone akin to Washington, Jefferson or
Adams rather than the current-day politicians who take pride in
their politically correct misadventures.
