Lying to the American people

Dear Editor,

In view of the many things that continue to take place in our government, the words of Solomon from Proverbs 28 seem to fit more perfectly than ever: V.15 Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people, V.16 A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor.

These verses fit our president, when we look at the actions and statements he and others have made about events like the Benghazi killings, the I.R.S. targeting conservative groups and the one that got him the Lie of the Year award; “if you like your health care plan you can keep it.”

Many people in government have become addicted to prestige, position and power. Whether they are called organizers, legislators, or heads of a bureaucratic agencies, these elites look upon the society and the culture as something to be formed into whatever whimsical shape they deem best, in their conceit even the bad things done to society are good, because it keeps us on the progressive path, doing the next new thing, which leads to it’s main purpose, more control. Lying to the American people is just another tool used on this road to control.

Now that the nation is beginning it’s fifth year of suffrage under this “demonstrably least qualified” “president” (as William Slusher defined him in his Jan. 16th column), I am thinking that maybe the people of this country have become the new form of Caspar Milquetoast, the cartoon character invented by H. T. Webster in 1924. Webster described Caspar as: “the man who speaks softly and gets hit with a big stick.” We must speak softly when discussing the decisions Obama makes, because the label “racist” is pasted on any who dare question his infallible wisdom, regardless of how much corrupt cronyism, outright ineptness, or deficit spending is connected to any given situation or program. We are hit with the “stick” every time his decisions prove to be the socialist inventions that he made them out not to be.

Governing outside the bounds of the constitution has been the norm for Obama, while Congress sits by like timid souls wondering what else this man will do to the document that both he and they took an oath to defend…, against all enemies foreign and domestic, that last part may have been dropped by now, because we have both home grown and foreign enemies of the constitution in positions of government. As one man put it, America has taken an I.Q. test and Obama was the result two times. Now that political correctness has become our new guide to candidate selection, can we look forward to a new tidal wave of tyranny from Hillary Clinton in 2016?
