What’s one more election worth?

— We’ve just gone through another exercise where we supposedly elect our government leaders. Have you looked at the results? Have we elected persons of moral character who will, in fact, honor their oath of office and represent their constituency according to our established laws?

While our esteemed leaders are very fond of proclaiming that we are a nation founded on the “rule of law,” what they neglect to say is that they feel free to make, or change, the laws according to their personal agendas — with their executive order pen. Exactly what are we to do when our president proclaims that if the Legislature will not give him his own way he will “act on his own”? Excuse me, but that sounds like the words of a dictator. It’s very apparent that Barack Obama and Eric Holder refuse to enforce laws already on the books with respect to the immigration and border enforcement problems and operation of the IRS and Department of Justice. Now Holder, in a recent college commencement address, has proclaimed that the country has reverted to the racist days of segregation, simply because it suits his agenda to continue to fuel the “racist issue,” which is their basic playing card.

Obama, whose only real-life experience has been as a community organizer, has surrounded himself with birds of a feather — political cronies and other supposed academic experts who share his mindset — replacement of capitalism with socialism.

Do you mind if I have the temerity to ask you, “What are the results?” So far these rabble-rousers have neglected their sworn responsibilities for managing our country according to the Constitution and have done an excellent job of tearing our country apart into divided camps: rich vs. poor, legal citizens vs. immigrants, black vs. white, all to satisfy their own political beliefs and ambitions and above all to gather votes to ensure the continuation of control by their political party.

The only reasonable solution is the ballot box — you better learn that if you don’t pay attention and elect people of acceptable moral character, this country will soon collapse into anarchy and I guarantee that your comfortable version of American society will not survive.
