Before voting for any Democrat on November 2, voters who really care about the future of America need to reflect on the old adage which holds that, “Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.”
That truth has never been more in evidence than over the past two years, during which time America has been in the hands of an ultra-liberal Democrat in the White House and equally far left Democrats presiding over majorities in both chambers of Congress.
The results of the Obama, Reid, and Pelosi deadly stranglehold on our precious nation are ugly, indeed, and include the following particularly grievous atrocities:
REFUSAL TO PROVIDE EQUAL PROTECTION FOR ALL
This outrage is so unbelievable that it continues to stun and amaze.
On November 4, 2008, voters in Philadelphia were intimidated by members of the New Black Panther Party while attempting to cast ballots.
Before President Bush left office in January of 2009, his Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a lawsuit under the Voting Rights Act against the New Black Panthers Party.
However, once Obama appointees to the DOJ took over, charges against the New Black Panther members were dropped.
On September 24, 2010, former Justice Department prosecutor Christopher Coates, in testimony at a U.S. Civil Rights Commission Hearing, shocked the nation when he revealed that the voter intimidation case was dropped because the suspects were black and their alleged victims were white.
“They have not pursued the goal of equal protection of the law for all people,” Coates reportedly said.
Repeat: According to a former Justice Department prosecutor, our federal government refused to prosecute claims when the plaintiffs were white.
People of color: Take no solace in this injustice. In this case, the victims of government bias are white people.
But what about next time? Will it be YOUR race or nationality or cause that the Obama administration arbitrarily refuses to protect?
FORSAKING AMERICAN CITIZENS IN FAVOR OF FOREIGN INVADERS
The Democrat party has been the “illegal alien” party for a number of years. This is so because liberals can no longer rely on reasonable Americans for votes and power.
Thus, the need for advocating on behalf of millions of uneducated, poor illegal invaders who are easily persuaded provided the free benefits (health care, education, welfare, etc.) are doled out in sufficient quantities.
True to their sinister disregards for the rule of law, American sovereignty, and preservation of American culture and language, Democrats consider invading criminals to be “Newly Arrived Refugees,” and, more importantly, future Democrats.
This betrayal of America and American citizens reached a new low in 2010 as President Obama ordered his administration to file suit against Arizona because of SB 1070, the state’s attempt to protect citizens from the ravages of foreign invaders.
Unbelievable! The United States government suing an American state for resisting invasions from foreign criminals!
Even more outrageous was the betrayal of America by Congressional Democrats on May 19, 2010, when all Democrats in the House and Senate gave Mexican President Felipe Calderon a standing ovation for his condemnation of Arizona and law SB 1070!
Remember: On May 19, all Democrats in the U.S. Congress stood to cheer a foreign leader who had just condemned Arizona law makers for protecting American citizens.
How can any reasonably-patriotic American vote for any Democrat after such vile and treasonous behavior?
PLAYING POLITICS WITH AMERICAN LIVES IN AFGHANISTAN
In his book titled, “Obama’s Wars” journalist Bob Woodward exposes the fact that winning the war in Afghanistan has never been much of a priority to Obama or the Democrats.
Which is why Obama insisted on a time table for withdrawal, a carefully crafted commitment that would bring the troops home in time for the 2012 presidential election.
How can any thinking American vote for any Democrat when the Democrat Commander-in-chief uses American troops as pawns in a deadly game of political chess?
USE OF BRIBERY AND SLEIGHT-OF-HAND TO PASS MARXIST OBAMACARE
The notion that the United States Congress provides “Honest, Open Government” to legislate and govern was blown all to hell by the political chicanery, cheating, and behind the scenes bribery used by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, with considerable help from Obama, to pass a Marxist form of health care called ObamaCare.
ObamaCare was, and is, opposed by most Americans, and for good reasons.
To begin with, ObamaCare mandates that American citizens purchase health care or face the travails of dealing with the IRS for non-compliance.
In addition, the assumptions and projections behind ObamaCare have already proven to be faulty at best, criminal at worst.
How can any thinking American vote for any Democrat knowing that this party has taken away freedom of choice from Americans when it comes to health care, and has used bribery and sleight-of-hand to pass legislation that America does not need or want?
All of the calamities identified could have been averted, or their impact at least minimized, had the U.S. Congress fulfilled it constitutional obligation to provide oversight of the Executive Branch.
Under the partisan leadership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, oversight was a forgotten (ignored!) virtue.
As a result, Executive incompetence, overreaching, and blatantly anti-American misbehavior were never challenged, except when Pelosi or Reid sought even greater liberal excesses.
Again, “Power Corrupts, and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.”
Although the list of atrocities committed by the unholy trifecta of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi is nearly endless, there are a few that are particularly outrageous and should serve as a wake-up call to anyone considering a vote for any Democrat.
These four outrages are the most irritating and anger-provoking to me. There are hundreds more.
The bottom line is that the Democrat Party no longer operates with the best interests of the American people in mind. A lust for power and an obsession with socialism makes Democrats completely out of mainstream America.
Please carefully consider these outrages before voting for any Democrat!
