Government gone wild

Posted

These past few months are no longer about Republicans or Democrats. I am bewildered at the American people and why more folks have not stood up in support of our fundamental rights. Let’s just focus on three issues: Benghazi, the IRS, and the illegal subpoena and monitoring of James Rosen and other journalists.

For a candidate who ran on transparency and becoming the government of the people, President Obama has a strange way of delivering those promises. If indeed he doesn’t know anything about any of these chilling events, that is even more alarming. As Americans we are seeing a pattern of activity, and it has no longer become just isolated deception.

The IRS spent $50 million on conferences, including seminars on art and lessons on line dancing, while many Americans are cutting back on most non-essentials. Now this president wants to increase the budget of the IRS to enforce Obamacare and to decide who pays a penalty for not having the proper health insurance coverage. Fellow Americans, this is our money they are spending. The head of the IRS was at the White House 157 times. That is more than any IRS leader has ever been before, and more than any other vital leader of our government.

This arrogance of power should be alarming to each and every one of us.

Republicans, please take a stand; Independents, it’s time to come forward and speak out; and Democrats, this is a whole new party, this is not the party of Kennedy. We are experiencing Big Government, and they believe they are more important than the people.
