The Want To Be

image

The way our country was founded over 200 hundred years ago was on God and a structure of checks and balances by which this nation and its Constitution are based on is being steadily and thoroughly destroyed by Obama who was from the very beginning and who is still determined to have absolute rule over a free people. Most American people if they are like me are infuriated, mad and furious that Obama through our federal government appears, by the look of things, to be taking aggressive measures to remove our rights to privacy granted to the American citizens under the Fourth Amendment of our Constitution. I was always under the feeling that oppressive and domineering governments, were run by communists and dictators. I thought that they were the ones who spied on citizens. But was I fooled! We have a president that is right there on the same level with them. But of course why am I surprised? When you rub elbows with dictators and shun your friends does not that put you in the same class or does that make you “a want to be dictator?”

The Constitution breaks up authority between the executive (president), legislative (Congress), and judicial (Supreme Court) branches of government and it is based on the view and the opinion that liberty can only be successfully preserved by having separate branches so that any little would be dictator (like Obama) could be stopped by the checks and balances that were built into the government structure. The problem is two of the branches of our government are not doing their job to stop Obama. He (the want to be king) is taking over this country and they do nothing.

From all my study and research of and about the history of the American government It goes without question, that our current leadership in the White House and the Congress is not the copy or the model pictured or envisioned by our founding fathers when it comes to the protection of the citizens' rights of privacy. It is truly disturbing that the American citizens’ telephone conversations, email, letters sent and received through the U.S. Postal Service, the websites Americans have visited, plus other things, are all being all watched and examined by the executive branch of our government.

Even more incredible is that we have a secret United States court reviewing actions of the American people pursuant to a secret law and giving the executive branch and its Agencies even more room to spy on law-abiding American citizens. What is happening to America? What’s next is the question that we, as Americans really must ask. Will we all have to wear ankle-monitoring bracelets or have a computer chip embedded under our skin to allow our government to monitor even our bathroom activity? Is that what our country is coming to? Some of you reading this will most likely laugh, but you had better stop and think because it is no laughing matter. It is real and it could happen by the way Obama and his government is going.

Our second amendment rights are very quickly being taken from us, we have drones flying over this country and I ask for what? Our phone calls, emails, and who knows what else is being monitored. We need to wake up and smell the coffee. I cannot believe that our patriots in 1776 and 1789, who put their lives on the line for freedom, would tolerate this corrosion of our second and Fourth Amendment rights in our daily lives.

The system of federalism upon which this nation and its Constitution are based is being systematically destroyed by Obama who is bent on absolute rule over a free people.

AMERICA: Here Is Your Wake Up Call!

What is happening to the country that we all love? As the American people draw near the first six months of Obama’s second term, his record causes many concerns for most people. In just six months, we have been hit with a foreign policy (What foreign policy) that is beyond reason and is a disaster, numerous scandals, postponing his worthless health care (Obamacare), while still not getting any information on “Fast and Furious” as well as the killing of the Ambassador in Benghazi. If this is what we see in the first six months, what are we in for for the remainder of his second term?

In all of this we have a president that is totally disengaged and disconnected from the real issues, a vice president that is continuing to make outlandish and absurd comments, the secretary of state is sailing while Egypt is exploding, and the attorney general (Holder) does not know anything about anything. In foreign affairs, Obama has pursued a policy that can only be described as hiding and not making any use of America’s vanishing power.

The world makes fun of us and disregards what we say. After supporting the overthrow of Mubarak, the president supported the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood (People who hate us) who while elected created a new constitution, requested the release of the man who led the early attack on the World Trade Center and clearly was against the United States. When his own people rose up to force him out of office seeking more freedom from the brotherhood, our president acted as if the people that were trying to hold our views were wrong. In Syria, Obama said that Hassad would be gone in two years, but now he is giving too little and too late support to the groups trying to remove this evil in our world. Now it is evil against evil there. No matter who he chooses they will be against us.

Obama’s comment that he should not have to talk with foreign leaders is an example of his arrogance and his abuse of power. He is not God even though he might think that he is. I have never feared my government up until now; in fact, I love my country and the presidents that led it. I had some strong disagreements with their policies, but I was awed by the leadership they provided. The one thing I was sure of was that my government was there to protect me. The actions of Obama do not allow me to feel safe from my government anymore. Under Obama the government is too big and controls most of our life. Obama and his policies are tearing our country apart.

The IRS scandal makes it clear that when Obama attacks the tea party movement then a number of people take that as their marching orders and stop opposition groups (those that oppose Obama’s policies) from gaining their rights to free descent. If you do not agree with the president, then you can be audited. If you lead an opposition group, they can ask for your emails, what films you watch and the leaders can have their personal and their businesses audited by the most feared part of government. The president states that he knew nothing about the report of IRS abuses while his chief of staff and his Treasury secretary did know. Can you believe that? Well you can believe it if you want but as far as I’m concerned and a lot of other people he knew and more likely was behind it.

The NSA is now monitoring all of the cell phones we have. This was started by President Bush to monitor telephone calls to foreign locations, but this administration under Obama expanded their power. The freedom of the press has come into question. If a reporter questions the policies of Obama he or she can be targets approved by the attorney general (Holder) to monitor their lives. The attorney general then lies to the Congress about his knowledge.Whole groups like the AP and Fox can be subject to investigation. Is this America where we can now have drones flying overhead monitoring our actions? We must speak out constantly in opposition to this abuse of power and protect our freedom or the government will take it from us. They have taken most of it now.

Maryland My Maryland

I will always remember and keep track of the state that I grew up in. “Maryland My Maryland”. I remember the good old Eastern Shore where hard crabs, soft crabs, crab cakes, and rock fish were always in abundance. For the most part the abundance of these things are in the past. Gone for the most part. The Maryland that I once knew is just about gone and all Marylanders can say goodbye to those things that we once enjoyed when they were in abundance and everyone could afford them.

And then as I was thinking there are a lot of things that all Marylanders can say goodbye to, especially since Governor O’Malley (Democrat) (Liberal) has been in office. Why do I say this? Well, when you take time to think about that statement you can see why I say goodbye.

Ever since Mr. O’Malley has been governor, the citizens of Maryland have been saying goodbye to a lot of their rights and their money. For instance, the first year he was in office we saw the federal transportation funds that were granted to each county of Maryland taken away from the respected counties. Goodbye transportation funds.

We also saw the surplus of money accumulated by former Governor Ehrlich, who was a Republican used to balance the first year budget deficit created by Governor O’Malley. Goodbye surplus money.

Funds that were appropriated for the construction of a new Dover Bridge, which is very much needed to support the lifeline between Talbot and Caroline counties, have since disappeared. Thousands of people depend on Dover Bridge every day to go to work and for all kinds of medical services. Why did that happen? Money is still being poured into reaching the beach, but for a much needed bridge for the people of the Eastern Shore it is goodbye new Dover Bridge. Where are the priorities here?

People from Maryland also see more of their hard earned money being spent at the gas pump due to the gas tax increase put into place by O’Malley. Marylanders can say goodbye to their hard earned money. The sales tax has also been increased to six cents on a dollar driving many people on the eastern shore to Delaware to do there shopping leaving business owners on the shore hurting.

Marylanders will also no longer be able to purchase certain firearms due to just their looks. The firearm can be a 22 rifle and if it looks like an assault rifle it cannot be sold in Maryland. And to purchase an allowed firearm they will need to be licensed and fingerprinted. Goodbye to some more honest citizens’ rights and goodbye to many jobs from the fire arms manufactures leaving the state.

That’s a pretty impressive summary of O’Malley and his actions since he has become governor. Most people will agree with that. And just think about this, Marylanders have a couple more years left for O’Malley to take away more of their hard earned money and their freedoms. What will be next O’Malley Man?

AMERICA: Or A Banana Republic

The question that needs to be put forth to the American people is this, were there any winners in the trial of George Zimmerman. Did Zimmerman really win? The answer to that question I’m afraid to say is no! The only question is really this, about the damage that has been done to the judicial system of our country. Will it be brief and temporary or will it be far beyond repair. Legally speaking, The jury found Zimmerman not guilty and he has received his freedom. That in my opinion should be the end of the matter. But the big issue for all Americans to look at is this - He can still be sued in a civil court and you know that is coming. Zimmerman and his family will probably never be safe to live their life in peace on this earth ever again, such as they had before this bogus trail made Zimmerman the focal point of national attention and the orchestrated hate of some people.

But even more important than the destiny and the fate of Zimmerman, is the future or the doom of the American justice system and of the American public’s faith in that court system and in the laws and leader of our country. The American people who have been asking more and more during the chaos of the Obama administration, “Is this still America that is the home of the brave and the free?” may feel determine that there is some relief from Obama and his corrupt dealings after the verdict in the Zimmerman trail, but they had better look out!

Just the very fact that this case was brought in the first place is a puzzle, because of the absence of serious evidence and hard facts to prove George Zimmerman guilty. The police said there was not enough evidence and it became ever more utterly obvious as the prosecution did its best to try to come up with anything at all that was creditable of a murder trial and they could not do this.

The political distortion and the twisting of the justice system about this trial started early and as we all know (or should know) started at the top, with Obama. A blind man could easily see that. Unlike other public officials of this country who refuse to comment on criminal cases that have not yet been tried in court, Obama spoke out and said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Obama is a smooth and deceiving person who uses different situations to promote his kingship. It was a clever way to play the race card, and look what has happen because of it. Riots all across the nation, threats made to Zimmerman. Obama has played the race card before like  when professor Henry Louis Gates of Harvard was arrested for violating the law.

But the problem with our fearless leader did not stop there. After the police in Florida conducted a investigation into the complaint about Zimmerman and found not enough evidence to ask for Zimmerman to be prosecuted, the Obama administration sent the Justice Department investigators to Sanford, Florida, and also used the taxpayers’ money to finance local activists who agitated publicly and behind the scenes for Zimmerman to be arrested. What is our federal government coming to? It sounds like the government of a banana republic.

The political intervention and involvement did not end with the federal government. The city manager at Sanford intervened to prevent the standard police procedures from being followed. Time to wake up America!  The only real heroes in this trial were the jurors. Why do I say this? Because they showed the world and the American people that this is still America. Well, at least for now it is anyway. They weighed the evidence and asked questions and took their time in deliberating the verdict that they gave.

Regardless of the politicians, no matter if it is the president, state, or local politicians, who try to taint and corrupt the law for their purpose. All Americans should remember this and also know that we live in America and not some third world country that twist and turn the laws as they want them at the time.

The Transparent Administration

I was shocked by Obama’s “who cares” attitude and reply to our European allies uproar over the reports that the United States has been spying on them. Obama said in essence that everyone is spying on everyone else. He said that is what nations do. But is it really what nations do? Do we as a nation spy on our friends and neighbor’s? Do we spy on our friends that stand beside us in war and times of trouble? Who would consider peaking in the windows or bugging their neighbor's telephone? That’s not the America that I know or grew up in. Of course we have never had a president who wants to tear down America as Obama does. We, as Americans, are better than that? That is until the master deceiver came along.

Is Obama also spying on Americans that do not go along with his agenda? Could he have some Americans in his cross hairs? The answer to that is probably yes. If the truth was really known Obama was most likely a part of the IRS scandal, the Benghazi cover up, the fast and furious cover-up, and many other scandals that have plagued this administration, but we will never know the whole truth or how involved he was because he is good at what he does, “DECIEVING THE PEOPLE”. He promised that his administration would be a transparent one. I’m sorry but there is nothing crystal clear about him or his administration.

There must be something about absolute power that slowly but thoroughly corrupts judgment and values. Certainly the Obama that people first elected in 2008 would not have proclaimed that spying on our allies is what nations do. His administration was going to be transparent, be less dismissive of the world, less arrogant. Yet, today, after five years in office, he casually dismisses our allies’ complaints that he has been spying on them with an “I could care less attitude”.

Business leaders would go to jail for bugging other companies. President Nixon ended up resigning over efforts to cover up the bugging of the Democratic Party Headquarters. Yet, in today's world, the American people are told by their president that it is just fine to spy on our allies. Every president would need a strong alter ego whispering in his ear when he loses his moral bearing if he was like Obama. This current president sure does and more.

The White House Prison

Michelle Obama made a statement on July 2 that I just cannot understand. She told the world that it felt like she was in a prison living in the White House. I, along with a lot of other people, cannot envision how she could make such an assertion. Since she and her husband have been in the White House they have been given the time and the opportunity to travel all over this world on vacations and they did this on the taxpayers money, not their own. They have eaten the very best food, have the best medical care, (not Obama care), and 24 hour protection. What a slap in the face to the American people, Michelle Obama, who has given you the means, the time, and our money to travel the world in first class accommodations paid for by the American people. How sad for our country to put out all this money and you think you’re in prison. Let us hope that the next family that live in the White House will be grateful for what has given them, by the American people and maybe this country will get back on track to a more positive future like most of the past presidents and their wives envisioned. Something that we the American people have not seen since you, Michelle Obama, and your husband have been in our (The American People) White House.

Liberals Stop At Nothing

At a gun control rally in New Hampshire Mayor Bloomberg’s group, ( Mayors Against Illegal Guns), claims that a well known known terrorist is a “victim of gun violence.” This just goes to show you how insane out leaders are becoming., MAIG sponsored organizers read names of people who were “victims of gun violence” since the shooting at Sandy Hook. Among the victims names that were read was the Boston Marathon terror bombing mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev..He was killed by police during a shootout following the Marathon bombing in Boston. During the pursuit, Tsarnaev threw grenades at police, and had additional explosives on him, but according to Bloomberg, he was a victim. Are our leaders losing their minds? Their list also includes known terrorists, home invaders shot in self defense by home owners, murderers who shot themselves and criminals shot by police in the line of duty.. None should be or would be considered a “victim” by any rational or normal person. Bloomberg and the Socialist-Democrat elitists such as Obama, Schummer, Feinstein, and many other liberal Democrats have once again proven they will stop at nothing, including, but not limited to repeating, over and over again flawed figures, statistics, and information, suppressing the news outlets, intimidating citizens and putting outright lies out to the public, in the quest of their Socialist agenda. They show no regard for the truth, for the American people or the Constitution of the United States.

As an American citizen I’m just sick and tired of all the lies by these liberal democrats. The liberal democrats have completely lost sight of the freedoms and rights of the Individual and the American people as a whole, and are putting forth and promoting the idea, a policy of centralized, Big Brother, Police-State government. This is not my vision of a free, American republic! Neither should it be the vision of any other American people.
