"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared." - Cicero, 42 B.C.After reading the below information, that I have compiled from many different web sites, please tell me does any of this sound like the America we use to know! Tell me are we headed in the right direction. Tell me is this the change that so many people voted for. For those of you who voted for Obama is this what you wanted?
Just one year ago, would you have believed that an unelected government official, not even a Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate but simply one of the many "czars" appointed by the President, could arbitrarily cut the pay of executives in private businesses by 50 percent or 90 percent? Did you think that another "czar" would be talking about restricting talk radio? That there would be plans afloat to subsidize newspapers — that is, to create a situation where some newspapers' survival would depend on the government liking what they published.
Did you imagine that anyone would even be talking about having a panel of so-called "experts" deciding who could and could not get life-saving medical treatments? Scary as that is from a medical standpoint, it is also chilling from the standpoint of freedom. If you have a mother who needs a heart operation or a child with some dire medical condition, how free would you feel to speak out against an administration that has the power to make life and death decisions about your loved ones? How about a federal agency giving school children material to enlist them on the side of the president? Merely being assigned to sing his praises in class is apparently not enough.
How much of America would be left if the federal government continued on this path? President Obama has already floated the idea of a national police force, something we have done without for more than two centuries. We already have local police forces all across the country and military forces for national defense, as well as the FBI for federal crimes and the National Guard for local emergencies. What would be the role of a national police force created by Barack Obama, with all its leaders appointed by him? It would seem more like the brown shirts of dictators than like anything American.How far the President will go depends of course on how much resistance he
meets. But the direction in which he is trying to go tells us more than all his rhetoric or media spin.
Barack Hussein Obama has not only said that he is out to "change the United States of America," the people he has aliened with and has been associated with for years have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, the principles and the people of this country. They go against everything that our fore fathers stood for! Jeremiah Wright said it with words: "God damn America!" Bill Ayers said it with his bombs that he planted. Community activist goons and bullies have said it with their contempt for the rights of other people. Among the people appointed as czars by President Obama have been people who have held in high regard and praised enemy dictators like Mao, Castro, and many others, who have seen the public schools as places to promote sexual practices contrary to the values of most Americans, to a captive audience of children.
Those who say that the Obama administration should have investigated those people more thoroughly before appointing them are missing the point completely. They are missing something here that is very clear. Why should we assume that Barack Obama didn't know what such people were like. If we did that would be a laugh, when he has been associating with precisely these kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House? Do you get the point? Nothing is more consistent with his lifelong patterns than putting such people in government — people who reject American values, resent Americans in general and successful Americans in particular, as well as resenting America's influence in the world. Nothing so epitomizes President Obama's own contempt for American values and traditions. He even apologizes to Muslim countries and says that America has been a bully, when there has been no other country on the face of the earth that has helped other countries in need with money and the blood of our young soldiers. Whether enough people will wake up in time to keep America from being dismantled, piece by piece, is another question. We cannot let this man have another four years in office!
Why would Obama not allow drilling for oil in the gulf of Mexico and Alaska, but lend money to Brazil to drill for oil off the Gulf of Mexico and then release millions of barrels of oil in this nations petroleum reserve? He said it was to bring down the cost of gas but was it? Prices are going right back up again! He did it to weaken our country. Another part of his dismantling. If we do not wake up we will not have a country?
