What amazes me are the people on the left who howled and screamed about all the illegal, immoral, and straight up evil crap that George W. Bush did, but are strangely silent on the exact same crap, or worse, that Obama has been up to, simply because he's their guy.
Now, if you followed my old website, you've seem me rail at the right for the exact same thing. They simply ignored anything that Bush did wrong and are now freaking out about Obama.
I find it funny/sickening that the same thing is now going on with the Democrats.
Let's recap some of the Bush/Chaney era evil:
- The Patriot Act
- Patriot II
- Security Enhancement Act
- Illegal wiretapping
- Torture, oh, I mean "Enhanced Interrogation"
- Extraordinary Rendition, aka kidnapping
- Tax cuts for the wealthy
- Corporate welfare
- Bank Bailouts
- Removal of Posse Comitatus
- Removal of Habeas Corpus
- Creation of the North American Command
- Authorizing soldiers to operate on American Soil
What has Obama, the supposed opponent of Bush's party, done about them?
Well, let's see, oh yeah!
He's either retroactively made them legal, extended the ones that were supposed to expire, or expanded on them to levels that would make Aldous Huxley and George Orwell roll over in their graves.
And where is the Left in all of this?
Silent. They have their heads in the sand and are waving their hands saying "these are not the droids you're looking for" while staying willfully blind to their President's wrong doing.
It's gotten to the point that I don't even recognize this country anymore, I really don't. I wake up in the morning, read the news and think to myself "did I wake up in Bizzaro world or something? What the hell is going on here?".
And most people don't seem to notice at all.
- Our police look more like the bad guys in some future dystopian war movie, and act like it.
- Our once noble country now kidnaps and tortures it's own citizens.
- We kill American citizens without trial or warrants.
- We reward companies that commit crimes, including drug money laundering, illegal trading, and supporting terrorists with massive grants of money.
- The NSA spies on all of us like the damned Stasi.
- The DHS has turned into a para-military enforcement arm of the Feds like they were the SS.
- Foreign nationals occupy every key position in our government.
- Millions of illegal immigrants are now no longer deported but are rewarded with government benefits meant for legal citizens while skyrocketing our crime rate.
- Foreign private corporations are handed access to our nations most secret and sensitive information.
- Our government is preparing to arm some of the very terrorist groups we are supposed to be fighting (hello, Al Qaeda? We've got guns for you!).
- All while you and I, American citizens, are called "potential terrorists" and are treated ever increasingly like we are the enemy by our own government.
All of those who sit back and let these soul sucking leeches ruin our country are to blame, and most likely, that includes you.
It's time we do something before it's too late. It's time that we take measures to oust these people and take our country back before it's way, way too late.
It's up to you. If you do nothing, then we all lose. We may even lose everything.
It's time we start voting these bastards out en masse and change this before it can never be changed.
In my next article, I'll explain how but for now, start looking around you. Start researching what these people in office are doing. Start taking a look at that "nice" politician that represents you and look up their voting record and their financial contributors. Chances are you'll find out how not nice they actually are.
It's time for a change and it must come soon.
