It appears that Barack Obama has again ignored the rule of law by signing a defense appropriations bill that prohibits him sharing vital United States leading-edge strategic US missile technology with Russia, yet he has told both houses of Congress that he plans to share the US missile technology anyway. Why is this important? Because it goes light-years beyond partisan politics and into an area where our national defense will be put at unreasonable risk. It is believed that the Russians will pass this technology onto China, Iran and North Korea.
I find it bitterly ironic that this president pushes an agenda of excessive government regulation and oversight under the guise of consumer safety. Virtually everything in our homes, offices and automobiles is regulated to some extent by federal bureaucracy. Yet at the same time, he’s subjecting tens of millions of American lives to unreasonable risk by unilaterally giving away our deepest US missile technology to nations hostile to American interests.
So here’s the bottom line. There are those of us who would vote for a Republican candidate because we do not believe in the agenda of this administration. Then there are those of us who would vote again for Barack Obama under the belief that he will take care of us financially by redistributing wealth so that everyone can be more or less equal regardless of skills, talent or work ethic. There’s just one problem. If you take away the United States military’s ability to protect this great nation from a nuclear missile launched from North Korea or even someday Iran, then the concept of federal cradle-to-grave protection and enablement probably loses most of its meaning, doesn’t it?
If you’re concerned, then you might want to watch this video produced by Dick Morris. I think Dick sums it up best when he says that this president
“has defined the opinion of both houses of Congress, both political parties, in pursuit of some phantom agenda of getting the Russians to like us a little bit more…. I think we will beat this guy in November, but we may not have a country by then”.
Admittedly, that last statement was designed to be dramatic in order to get our attention, but it underscores what I’ve been writing about for the last three years. We have a President of the United States who believes he’s more of a king than a servant of the people. And letting one man, regardless of who he is, make decisions and dictate unilaterally to the other 300 million of us is not only unsettling and frustrating, it’s extremely dangerous. The framers of the Constitution knew that all too well. Unfortunately, too many Americans have little understanding of the timeless principles that founded this country.
And if you don’t understand the value of what you have, history has shown that you are sure to lose it.
