In 2006 when Democrats took control of both houses of Congress, Nancy Pelosi stood before the American people and said "The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, DC" and "the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.". The simple reason for that statement was, since the election of George W. Bush and after the events of 9/11/2001, the Republicans spent money like drunken sailors on shore leave and tax payer money was disappearing down a bottomless pit with no accountability. The other reason was the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were dragging on with no end in sight and costing us a fortune, both monetarily and in American lives. The American people just saw another war like Vietnam and wanted an end to it.
Okay, now let's fast forward to the election of Barack Hussein Obama, after being elected, he also promised that his administration would be the most transparent in history and that there would be no catering to lobbyist's and no more 'back-room deals.'
Well, we all know that after 5 years this was not the case. In fact, Obama's administration is the single most corrupt administration in the history of the United States. I mean for crying out loud, Obama makes Nixon look like a saint! So my question is this: Why do we accept corruption from our elected officials? Is it just a given, that all politicians are thieves and liars? How is it that nobody in Obama's administration hasn't been fired or put in jail? I hate to say this, but if Obama was Caucasian and a republican, he'd have been in jail by now.
But I digress...
Obama has built his entire political career from lies and corruption. However, still the question remains as to why must we accept this kind of vile behavior as the norm from our elected officials? It sure doesn't seem to bother the so-called liberals, and it seems a normal tactic from the left-wing, as long as the ends justifies the means, do whatever you have to do, to accomplish your goals. What that means to any honest, decent person of character is that you can lie, cheat and steal for as long as you can get away with it. Having an Attorney General who is just as corrupt, running the Department of Justice, certainly doesn't hurt either, eh? It just means that you'll never be charged with anything harsher than jaywalking, if that. That is the disturbing reality.
Now, Obama and his gang of thieves, thugs and liars don't even have to worry about the filibuster anymore!
If something like this was done (or even attempted) by an elected official just 40 years ago the whole gang would be in prison. Come to think of it, that's exactly what did happen! However, not so in today's society. As long as you keep lying, breaking out the old 'race-card' every now and then for good measure and have a complicit media, apparently you can even get away with letting people die and nothing will happen to you. I was raised in a very strict home. Both my parents grew up during the Great Depression. So, in my house, honesty was the only thing acceptable in any situation. I can't count how many times I was told to tell the truth when asked a question, because like Mom used to say "Telling the truth about anything can never be as bad a lie. A lie will make a bad situation 10 times worse." I guess President Obama's mother, never taught him that lesson. That is abundantly clear when Obama said, "If you like your doctor, you can keep him, if you like your insurance plan, you can keep that too, period."
Remember folks, Richard Nixon resigned and half of his cabinet went to prison when they broke the law. To be fair, Nixon didn't have the mainstream media in his back pocket calling Democrats "racist."Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
