The Want To Be


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.
