America’s truth or consequences moment

After enduring months of scandals, lies, and ineptitude, there can be no doubt America is at a crossroads. We must all decide whether the rule of law is still applicable in this Republic or shall we drift into becoming a progressive socialist dictatorship.

I know where I stand. The question is, will our elected officials have the courage to stand as well?

Watching the apparently mindless lemmings show up and cheer on an individual who has lied and deceived an entire nation on its most personal decision, healthcare, is just unconscionable. They are allowing their own freedom and liberty to slip through their fingers.

To still hear the countless droning of those who will make every excuse for what is blatantly a collapse of integrity and competence is simply astonishing.

President Obama lied to Americans about keeping their healthcare coverage while implementing mandates that made those plans non-compliant. The President then lectured the American people that these plans were not up to his standard, referring to them as junk.

The level of discord rose, even among his party, and therefore the president decides to implement “enforcement discretion” and just says, “never mind” — completely politically-driven.

But when a legislative resolution is passed to give coverage back to Americans, the arrogant imperial ruler issues his veto threat. In essence, there will be no dissent to his will, so what kind of America do we live in?

And it seems that when pressured, the same ol’ race baiting surfaces — consider Oprah Winfrey’s comments to the BBC, “There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

As I’ve said before, I will not sacrifice my country for some faux historic moment. This is not about the color of his skin, it’s about the empty content of his character. President Barack Obama constantly shows himself to be a disgrace to America and a clear and present danger to our Republic.
