Obama, Congress like organized crime family

DEAR EDITOR:

When are the taxpaying citizens of this country going to collectively say, “Enough is enough,” and flush Obama?

America’s most dangerous enemy is not Iran, North Korea, Russia, China, or, any other nation. Our most dangerous enemy is the Barack Hussein Obama-led government, which is rapidly taking America down a path toward destruction. Wake up America and face the truth. Our representatives in government, Democrat and Republican, are little more than leaders of an organized crime family, more focused on holding onto power than representing the best interests of the nation. In the process they spit on the Constitution — which they took an oath to “preserve, protect and defend” — and infringe on the rights of the people in the name of “preserving this,” or “protecting that.” In the process they grow the size of their organized crime operation, add to our national debt and are so selfishly consumed with power that they give little consideration as to the disastrous conditions they are creating for America’s future generation.

If our nation’s brilliant, freedom-loving founders were to gaze upon the rat hole that federal government has become, they would proclaim, “Why did you — the people — let government erode the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution? Has personal greed so corrupted your present day society that it has replaced personal pride in America? America will surely suffer the consequences.”

How did “We The People,” allow government to regulate and tax so many aspects of our lives, thereby depriving us freedom of individual choice? We are forced by our government to use specific light bulbs, certain fuels, eat certain foods, not drink sodas, etc., while it listens to our private communications.

Every Democrat that voted to pass the Affordable Health Care Act violated the Constitution in that such law is a denial of a citizen’s right, privilege and freedom to decide and manage their personal health.

I would also point out that Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision was beyond the scope of his office. The Supreme Court’s function is to decide the constitutionality of laws. It does not have the power or authority to write or amend laws. Roberts essentially re-wrote the Affordable Healthcare Law when he decided “Congress does not have the power to levy fines, but does have the power to tax.” Had he acted within the scope of his authority, he should have ruled, “The bill is unconstitutional as written.”

What a selfish piece of drivel. Wayne, just because you have no regard for what you are leaving our children, doesn't mean that the rest us are that cold-hearted. Quit with the "lone-wolf" garbage you got from Atlas Shrugged or wherever. Our lives are better as a result of the social contract we all agree to adhere to, so save your Chicken Little act for the tea party zealots who care.

Wayne: If George 1 or George 2 or Ronnie had been able to implement a healthcare for all act you would have been kissing the associated ring, on your knees saying, "HALLELUIAH".

Mittens implemented a very similar law in MA and you thought that was just fine, up until the moment that Mittens said, "I would repeal the Affordable care Act". Since Mittens couldn't make up his mind, perhaps you can't either.
Corruption galore

We are rotting from within. That's it, plain and simple. I see no hope for us as long as the media is complicit in the corrupt government. This is what happened in Nazi Germany.

"Every Democrat that voted to pass the Affordable Health Care Act violated the Constitution in that such law is a denial of a citizen’s right, privilege and freedom to decide and manage their personal health."

You aren't being "denied" anything, Mr. Beyea. The ACA aims to insure 30 million uninsured Americans so the rest of us don't have to pay for their healthcare. That was a conservative idea, not Obama's. I'll have more to say on ACA in Friday's column.

You are among the regular letter writers who display considerable ignorance on the issues. The Founder's would be disappointed there are so many uninformed voters.

KF: Who IS paying for it, if not us?

Looking forward to your Friday piece.

By the way, sometimes your Blog disappears or only displays your first couple of entries. What's up with that?

Right on. A very accurate description of what is happening to our country, due to complacency and the entitlement mentality.
