Three scandals engulf the Obama Presidency – the Benghazi terror cover-up, the Justice Department’s seizing of the Associated Press’s phone lines, and the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups for harassment and denial of tax petitions. In all three cases, members of the Obama Administration abused their governmental power to promote their partisan political agenda. These actions are wrong and they delegitimize the United States Government.
Why should you and I pay taxes to an Internal Revenue Service that serves the Democrat Party? Why should we respect any decision made by this law breaking “Justice Department? ” Why should we trust the State Department to act in our national interest, when it so plainly is acting in the interest of Democrat Party candidates — Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton? In Obama’s America, people die, freedoms are denied and the rule of law is bent, all in the interest of keeping tax, borrow and spend liberal politicians in power. This is wrong.
We must restore American values to our American government. Among these values are respect for the rule of law, individual freedom, and personal responsibility. I hope we will bring real change to the ballot box in 2014 and 2016. Our future “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” depends on it.
