The Most Compelling Reasons To Expatriate From The United States
Those who know me well understand that I am a political atheist who doesn’t subscribe to political religions. In other words I am not one of millions of Republicans and Democrats or any other party affiliated sheep who fights for the party platform above all reason.
That being said, what is being revealed in U.S. politics these days is even more concerning than where the economy is headed. The U.S. government has lost it’s mind!
Does anyone remember what happened in Benghazi? The U.S. government, instead of admitting that they may have been able to prevent the terrorist attack, not only denied they had information about it prior to the attack they invented some bullshit story about the attack being a response to a video. Yes, a damn video! That is all these jackasses could come up with?
Instead of taking responsibility and being apologetic, they blamed a video regarding muslims for the assassinations of four American Citizens including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The reality is that the administration was aware of the probability of attack and did nothing to prevent it. The American people seem to be OK with it….
The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs investigated the incident and reported, “there was a high risk of a ‘significant’ terrorist attack on U.S. employees and facilities in Benghazi in the months before the September 11, 2012, assault on the Mission, and the State Department failed to take adequate steps to reduce the Mission’s vulnerability.” There you have it. They were aware it was a serious threat, it occured and then they lied their asses off to cover it up. No one seems to give a shit.
The fact that the administration made a mistake is not the problem. Mistakes are made every day and people of good character take responsibility for those mistakes. The clear problem in this case is that they intentionally covered up the mistake by lying about it. This is nothing knew in government but four Americans are dead because of it.
More disturbing than the Benghazi incident is U.S. Department Of Justice’s (DOJ) illegal investigation of journalist James Rosen for, “classified newsgathering activities”. He was accused of being a co-conspirator in a plot to leak sensitive information that could possibly put the nation at risk.
An interview of Judge Andrew Napolitano who referenced the U.S. Constitution, noted that free speech is explicitly protected by the First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” He continued by stating that, “There is simply no crime. For the FBI to tell a federal judge that James committed a crime by receiving classified information and offering to publish it, even by asking for classified information, is absolutely wrong. James, like all of us who are professionals in this business, has an absolute constitutionally protected right to seek news of material interest to the public wherever that news may be.”
As everyone knows Fox News is a very right leaning news organization who has been very critical of Democrats and the current administration. It’s no surprise that they jumped at the chance to go after one of their nemesis’. The problem is that it was an illegal search that violated his 1st amendment right! Of course, the constitution is meaningless in the States these days and has ceased to serve any real purpose.
The investigation of Mr. Rosen is a symptom of government gone awry. They do whatever the hell they want and no one in the U.S. seems to give to care. As long as the American citizen is quiet the government will continue to invade and take every last freedom they have….and deservedly so.
Perhaps the most damning government scandal under the Obama administration’s watch is IRS’s targeting of Republican supporters and organizations during the presidential campaign.
The bottom line is that federal employees/representatives are using government agencies to target citizens with opposing views. Has it been so long ago that President Nixon used the IRS to intimidate opponents that we don’t remember what happened to him? Have we become so complacent that we will allow something as sinister as this to stand?!
I’m stunned and frightened at the relative quiet surrounding these issues. Heads should be rolling….where are the street protests?!
Before you so called “progressives” get sand in your vaginas, let me say that I have as little regard for the Bush’s, Clintons and all other politicians as I do for Obama. They are the elite class of American politicians bent of serving themselves first, their friends and family second and to hell with the citizens and small business.
