We've Been Stonewalled Long Enough And, Yes, It Matters

March 19, 2013 - 3:37 PM

Hillary Clinton's now famous statement of "What difference does it make?" when confronted with the questions of who and what caused the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, seems to exemplify the attitude of the Obama administration toward the present day mess that has become American fiscal, foreign and domestic policy.

Has America regressed to the point that we can't recognize blatant stonewalling?

We have high-profile administration hacks trying to explain away an act of war that lasted several hours during which they just sat back and watched it happen on a satellite feed and wrung their hands in impotency, while Americans were slaughtered and American sovereignty was violated, an event which the president evidently slept through most of and refuses to bring forth the surviving eye witnesses who actually know first hand what happened and what lead up to it.

Basically it's just another way of saying, "It's none of your business," your opinions don't count," "just go back to sleep and let us run things, we know what's best for you and we'll let you know when it's time to wake up and vote for us."

The arrogance of the administration in invoking Executive Privilege in the Fast and Furious firearms debacle to cover for an inept, out of his depth Attorney General and the media's complicity in all things Obama has all but swept that ill-conceived bit of insanity under the carpet of public apathy.

President Obama says that the national debt is not important enough to take the front and center position in efforts to stop the hemorrhaging of our economy, even though it takes over a third of federal revenue just to pay interest and stay current with the installments.

What happens when it starts taking half, then seventy-five, and then one hundred percent, which it is projected to do in the coming decades?

Obama's solution is to raise taxes, print money, keep interest rates artificially low, spend every cent he can collect or borrow and basically ignore the coming collapse and tell us that the economy is on the rebound and everything will be fine.

Have we, as a people, been so sedated that we are willing to let this administration go through their term telling us only what they want us to know and keeping the rest to themselves?

Are we willing to sit callously back and let this crushing burden fall on generations not yet born just because we are too lazy or too caught up in our own lives to recognize the fiscal nuclear weapon that is wittingly or unwittingly being created by an administration that has had their way since day one and still blames all America's troubles on their predecessor and has led America into a kind of debt that should only happen in nightmares?

When We The People are not respected enough to be told the truth, when incident after incident is covered up, when our children are viewed as pieces on a political chess board, when they become more important as union barter than future citizens, when the future of our health care is put into the hands of non-medical bureaucrats, when some of the finest military minds in the service of the nation are quietly relieved of their commands for no apparent reason and we are given no explanation, isn't it time to hold accountable whoever it is in our power to hold accountable?

Thank God our forefathers had the vision and foresight to create a House of Representatives that can't be controlled by monolithic voting blocks and, for the time being, in this body lays the last hope of Americans who want to save this nation from the disaster confronting it.

We should be very careful about who we send to the House Of Representatives; it's basically the last firewall between an all-but-dictatorial presidency and rubber stamp Senate majority who have already proven that they want to rule, not lead.

America is in a most precarious situation. Our time is short, our choices are limited and our awareness and involvement is crucial.

We need truth seekers; we've been stonewalled long enough.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
