Last week I posted an article, the first one in weeks, regarding the chilling things that current president, Barak Obama, is doing in his efforts to destroy the United States of America. Today, I am authoring another article illustrating yet another example of the overt actions this president is utilizing to destroy our great country.
I have written on many occasions about the right that the citizens of the United States have to criticize and hold their government officials accountable. If you don’t like the government, you have every right to say you don’t like it without fear of reprisal. Yes, without fear of reprisal until recently, that is.
Remember “Joe, the Plumber?” During the 2008 presidential campaign, Joe asked candidate Obama a rather tough question regarding the candidate’s stand on re-distribution of wealth where the candidate actually indicated that one of his goals as president would be to re-distribute wealth away from the nation’s wealthiest to the middle and lower classes.
This question was an embarrassment to candidate Obama and angered Obama supporters. On Obama supporter, a city clerk in Cleveland, Ohio, decided to see what information she could unearth about ole Joe and publicize it. As it turned out, Joe had some skeletons in his closet that the “tolerant left” jumped upon in their efforts to destroy Joe. As recently as July 2015, Huffington Post ran a hit piece on Joe, the Plumber, calling him abysmally ignorant and suffocatingly arrogant.
Now, Joe was not picked up in the middle of the night, taken to a gulag and never heard from again; but he was certainly denigrated. You may say that Joe was a fake and a fraud, but did he deserve what the city clerk in Cleveland did to him? Absolutely not! If this had been a Democrat asking a touch question of a Republican candidate, that Democrat would have received many accolades from the left.
In addition to the defaming of Joe, the Plumber, the current president has asked his supporters to listen carefully and take note of any criticisms his detractors may come up with. While the current president didn’t go so far as to ask his supporters to send him the names and the contact information of those folks, we’re headed down that road.
After having expressed these chilling things to a liberal Obama supporting friend over dinner several years ago, she promptly replied that this wasn’t going to happen because Obama was so wonderful that he wouldn’t do anything such as what I was saying. In other words, anything Obama says and does is wonderful and shouldn’t be questioned. I have news for this friend. The government of the United States of America was set up so that our elected officials are constantly held accountable for their actions.
Since the 2008 incident involving Joe, the Plumber, many attempts have been made and are currently being made by the “tolerant left” to destroy those who don’t agree with their political philosophies. In fact, things have developed since Obama assumed the presidency that are so much worse that I’m feeling the oppressiveness of this administration and the “tolerant left,” and I’m not the only one. Furthermore, the left has been at work eroding our freedoms at a pace so gradual that we’re not even aware of what’s taking place until we think back a decade or so.
In today’s politically correct world created by the “tolerant left,” you can be damaged by making the statement that you believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman or that you believe that one should use the restroom of their original gender.
There was a post on my personal Facebook page indicating that the United States of America is a country of approximately 320 million people and still we can’t come up with a better presidential election ticket than Clinton vs. Trump. At a time when we need good leadership to take us back to the principles upon which this country was founded, we don’t have it. So, what’s in our future? Sadly, I don’t know.
