Down through the ages, ends have always justified means for leftists

To The Daily Sun,

Are we mad as hell yet? Are we ready to say that we are not going to take it anymore? Military chaplains banned from giving mass. People who own homes with long-term leases on federal lands being evicted. Entrepreneurs forced to close their businesses which are on government land. Shutting down public roadways in multiple states. Troops who wanted to assist a Virginia food bank were told to stand down. Barricading war memorials. Message for courageous World War II vets, go away, you bother me. Withholding death benefits to surviving military families. Just more blatant examples of President Obama's contempt for the military. Remember, nearly half of the sequester cuts went toward the defense. And yet he turns the national park rangers into his personal police force. Kudos to Wisconsin governor Scott Walker who told the feds, no, I'm going to keep my parks open.

Soft tyranny, police state? Balderdash say those of the liberal persuasion. Those would be the ones who seem to be happy, perhaps ecstatic that we no longer appear to want to behave like Americans. Increasingly, sheriffs, mayors, governors and country officials are being intimidated into acquiescence. Most state governments now get so much money from the federal government that they are afraid to bite the hand that feeds them. Questionable surveillance techniques only add to the fear and timidity when opposing the all powerful government. Voters lulled into confusion, disillusionment and finally complacency throw up their hands and don't even vote. A growing volume of low information voters who are getting government largesse will always vote for Democrats. It seems that the dependent state President Obama has been diligently building has become a roaring success.

The Democrats are treating the government shutdown and efforts by Republicans to delay Obamacare for one year like some juvenile game. What do liberals do when they don't have the truth or the will of the people on their side? Let the name calling games begin, and boy have they. Extortionists, arsonists, anarchists, terrorists, inmates running the asylum and having bombs strapped to their chests.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announces to the world that the United States just might default. More scare tactics and more intimidation. This has already had some negative affect on the financial markets while there is no chance we will default on our debts. We have plenty of revenues to take care of the interest on the debts we owe to the Chinese and Japanese.

Scaring people, inflicting maximum pain and bullying citizens is okay for most of those on the left. Because the end justifies the means as it always does for progressives down through the ages. Sacrificing the livelihood of citizens, not to mention their very lives is perfectly okay if it is for the good of the collective. The fundamental transformation of this nation by our Marxist president continues at warped speed. And talk about scary, he has another three years to continue the destruction.

Our forefathers and our brave veterans have fought the good fight so that our government would "tread on us lightly" with it's limited powers.
Do we have enough fight left in us to prevent this republic from becoming the United Socialist States of America? I honestly feel that we still do, but the time grows short. It is paramount that we understand, if progressives are willing trash our veterans and refuse to offer funds to kids with cancer and are unwilling to delay Obamacare for one year or live under the same health plans they mandate us to live under, then they are capable of just about anything. Yes, I think we have plenty of fight left. After all, it is in our DNA.
