Out in the world today there are indications that America is becoming the target. Every revolution is designed to be aggressively anti-American. We are the enemy whether we like it or not and it is obvious that our president will not protect us. Our government, even with newly installed representatives and senators, is unwilling to do the things that will keep us safe.
The government is not interested in the waves of drug dealers and terrorists coming across the southern border and when any of the states along that imaginary line have moved to stop the influx, they have been taken to court by the Obama Administration. Just to be fair, I think the Bush Administration would have done the same. There is a lack of willingness to obey the Constitution's requirement under Article IV, Section 4 to "...protect each of them [the states] from invasion; and on Application of the legislature [the state's?], or of the Executive [the state's?] (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."
There is a lack of willingness of the congress to fulfill their obligation to hold their own members accountable for their oaths of office. When everyone is a criminal, who would call the police?
We have watched as the clouds have grown dark. We have heard the thunder roll across the land. We have witnessed the lightening strike with ferocious might. Yet, we remain immobile.
We have watched the Obama Administration take our money, the money of our grandchildren, and give it to their allies in the labor unions who protest against tax-paying citizens. They don't protest government action, they protest citizen groups. Are you listening? The Obama Administration takes money directly from your Social Security account (a debt your children will pay) and puts it in the hands of SEIU and AFL-CIO members like the AFGE (American Federation for Government Employees) through the stimulus bill. These same unions who protested citizens who disapproved of the proposed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) have taken stimulus money to do the protesting and have turned right around and asked for a waiver from the implementation of the act, all the while demanding more money from you for their pensions and salary increases.
Where is the outrage? This should have sparked an Egypt moment if anything would. I guess nothing will.
I don't know what it will take to motivate the average American to demand legitimate government, they don't seem to be interested in it. Right now, I don't expect an American to get out of the chair to vote, much less take a stance on the crucial issues of survival as a nation. Americans don't seem willing to do anything other than bitch about their condition to Hu Jintau, or whoever will run the place next. They are like renters watching the flood waters rise, not bothering to block the door jams or remove the furniture.
Look, I always knew there were speed bumps and spectators as I have termed the Americans who are more interested in episodes of Dancing With the Stars than the Star Spangled Banner, but I am beginning to question the existence of any other. I know there are a few, I have met some, but I wonder if there are anywhere near 3%. I doubt it.
