I just finished reading the “Memorial Day Proclamation” issued by the president. Although in agreement with what it says, I am very much aware of the fact that it was probably crafted by a clever wordsmith who serves as his speech writer. I expect that, as all presidents have probably done the same. That’s not what bothers me.
What troubled me as I read the proclamation was the thought of Benghazi and those brave men who lost their lives without our government lifting a finger to help them. That led to numerous other negative thoughts, but it was Benghazi that was at the forefront of my mind. I couldn’t shake it and it was shaking me emotionally, to the point that I had to speak out. Suddenly the words from the president rang hollow—even worse, they sickened me!
In typical politician fashion the president said what was expected–what he thought the people would want to hear. But action speaks louder than words. No man can mean what the president said and do what the president does. “Phony” doesn’t even begin to describe it. It is hypocrisy of the highest sort–the kind that needs to be exposed. The kind that we should never see in the “Commanding Officer” of the United States of America.
Our nation is being destroyed by the most corrupt and inept administration ever. To just sit back and watch it happen without a word of protest makes us as guilty as the perpetrators themselves. It is all the more hideous when it happens because of party preference and racial prejudice. Did I say it is “sickening”? People’s attitude toward Barack Obama and his administration is a defining moment in American history. As we pick up speed in our downward spiral it will become more and more difficult to stop it. Seems to me that it is now or never. Silence at a time like this is cowardly, not “golden”. How can we refuse to speak out when so much is at stake? If not now, when? If not ever, why? If not you, who?
I realize that many could say it better than I, but I don’t hear them– at least not many. I don’t have the ability to sway a nation with oratory, nor a speech writer to say it for me, so I will just speak for myself. Hopefully others will join the chorus of opposition to this administration and the workforce of those willing to labor to bring about change. Most of all let us join the ranks of those who pray for our country— knowing that it is only “under God” that we shall be able to stand. Think about it!
