Could there be a more cynical, anti-American political maneuver than the election year release of a massive report on torture going back to the Bush presidency? The charade is being overseen by California Senator Dianne Feinstein who, ironically, chairs a committee on intelligence.
American Ideals and Values
Hating America isn’t hard for liberal Democrats. They aren’t going to honor something they don’t value. It isn’t difficult for them to get people to agree when they openly disrespect our country because Democratic politicians are clever at confusing what they are really saying.
Do you think that the American political system isn’t working because Congress is broken, our parties reduced to hopelessly butting heads with no progress in sight? You are wrong. A do-nothing legislature may not be quite what our government’s creators intended, but the American political system works.
Do you get tired of hearing what a great country we have when the words are coming from someone intent on undermining everything America stands for? Our current crop of liberal traitors does not understand nationalism. Patriots do.
Original or not, JFK’s remark in his inaugural address about asking what you can do for your country would be lost on a good portion of Washington.
If you want to see how angry Americans create change, have a look at what’s happening in Murrieta, California. California may be the only state less likely than Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois to sprout grass roots protests against his immigration abuses.
When you are president of the United States and you can’t do your job because of your country’s Constitution, what can you do? Declare freedom from being American. Ignore our system of government. Disregard America’s laws. Threaten to do whatever it takes to get your way.
America’s Founding Fathers turned their beliefs in liberty, freedom, and tyranny into an unrivaled success story they probably hoped future Americans would value enough to preserve. James Madison spoke of civil liberty and limits on government. Benjamin Franklin warned about the religion of ignorance.
