In the summer of 1787, a crowd gathered around Independence Hall to learn what type of government their representatives had formed for the new nation. When Benjamin Franklin walked out of the Constitutional Convention, Mrs Powel could wait no longer. Franklin was one of the best known of the “Framers” working on the new US Constitution. Powel ran up to Franklin and asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin turned to her and said “A republic, Madam, if you can keep it.”
Those words “If you can keep it” was a warning to future generations of Americans, can we still lose the Republic? You bet we can. Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
We have two men in power, who I believe are a threat to our Republic, one is President, the other Attorney General. Both men came into office, not to serve the people of this country, but to inflict their personal beliefs on to the American people, whether we want them or not. We have a president, who believes that our Constitution is an “imperfect document” who truly believes that our Constitution does not give government the power he needs to rule over the people, to Obama the Constitution is a hindrance. We have a president who constantly lies to the American people and thinks that is his right as president to do so. Obama believes that as president everyone should do what he says without question, he is allowed to dictate and bully and that people should fall into line.
Holder came into office with a huge chip on his shoulder, instead of coming into office to protect and defend all Americans, he feels he was ordained to defend the black cause, no matter how wrong they are. He refused to prosecute the Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding clubs, as they stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia. His office was ordered not to concentrate on injustices done to whites, but to concentrate on those done to blacks. His belief that we should punish blacks less because of the great divide in black and white crime is ridiculous. Maybe he should concentrate on getting blacks to stop committing crimes, that would be the logical way to handle the problem. Holder is the very definition of the word racist.
Holder has many scandals under his belt, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS scandal, AP Surveillance, Secretly Targets Fox News Reporter, Marc Rich Pardon, Weather Underground Pardon, Opposition to Voter ID Laws, Fort Hood as work place violence. His refusal to help congress get to the bottom of any of these scandals should tell the American people that he is hiding something and is trying to protect Obama.
Both men have a vindictive streak, are incompetent and are dangerous to this country because they have their own personal agenda and it has to do with dividing our nation not uniting our nation. It is my opinion that these two men do not belong in the positions they are in, they do not have the best interest of the country in their hearts, but are determined to inject their own personal agendas on to the American people, and I for one am tired of it.
