President Obama once again showed disdain for the truth, and a lack of concern for the will of the American people when he claimed executive privilege over the documents relating to the botched ATF operation “Fast and Furious”, which ended in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Executive Privilege is meant to protect communications directly with the President, and to safeguard military, diplomatic and sensitive national security matters. Obama claiming executive privilege can mean only one of two things; either President Obama was directly involved in the Fast and Furious operation and has misled the American people about his knowledge and level of participation in the operation, or he is once again abusing the power of the Presidency and protecting his own by unconstitutionally claiming Executive Privilege. Pick your poison. (I guess you already did if you voted for President Obama). Either way, it’s a bitter pill to swallow.
This shameless abuse of power is just another in the long line of examples of President Obama’s total disregard for the Constitution. Following mandates on health care, birth control and U.S. immigration policies, President Obama’s complete lack of respect for the wishes of the American people has become nothing more than business as usual. Shame on you, Mr. President. Shame on us for allowing it to happen. The question is, how much more will the Obama faithful take before even they can no longer ignore the obvious contempt for our system. It’s time for the Obama Nation to stop secretly regretting their vote, look their savior straight in the eye, and stand up for what they know to be right. It’s not too late to reclaim your self-respect. It is our responsibility as American citizens to hold our leaders accountable for their actions. Remember who works for whom.
“Liberty may be endangered by the abuse of liberty, but also by the abuse of power”. James Madison
Our forefathers knew what they were talking about. Repression. They suffered under it, fought against it, and gave us the tools to make sure we would never have to live under that dark cloud again. Let your conscience be your guide. The future of our nation is in our hands, not those of one elected official. Even if he happens to be the President of the United States.
