I am a writer. I am currently working on my fourth book and really can’t afford a lot of distractions. Unfortunately, this is an ERA of distractions. What am I distracted by? Stupidity, of course, and right now this country is loaded with it.
Back in the 70s Nixon was run out of office when the Republican Party bugged a room or two in Watergate. Currently, the NSA, under Obama’s administration, is bugging the whole damned country and Congress doesn’t do a thing about it. Nixon one room, run out of office, Obama EVERY room, nothing.
On http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/a-list-of-obamas-constitutional-violations/52988 the following violations of the Obama administration are noted.

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States. The president ”shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed” -Article II, Section 3.
And nobody acts to stop him. THIS IS NOT THE WAY THIS COUNTRY IS SUPPOSED TO BE!
So, why doesn’t anybody kick his ass out? Well, for starters, the Democrats, who everyday act more like Communists, back him, right or wrong. Not surprising since he was their candidate anyway. Another reason is that they don’t want to be accused of racism. Calling people racist is their thing and they don’t want it turned back on them.
So, Obama gets a free pass to destroy this country from the inside. The next president, likely a Republican since you can’t fool all of the people all of the time, will spend his first four years trying to undue the damage. Or possibly even make it worse since no politician is to be trusted.
Sorry people, the United States of America that we once knew is gone. No longer are we truly free. Bush’s Patriot Act started the ball rolling, and Obama picked it up and made it a thousand times worst. It took an extra 30 years, but George Orwell’s 1984 has arrived, and only a full out revolution will undo the damage.
