Integrity lost

I’m writing to express my absolute disgust for the way politicians in Washington blatantly lie or mislead the American people.

Beginning with “Fast & Furious” Congress attempted to find out exactly what went wrong and who was responsible. The guns that were given to criminals in Mexico and subsequently used to kill one of our border agents have not been recovered, nor has anyone been held accountable. The president used his executive power to block a congressional investigation so he could protect his crony Eric Holder. The American people deserve answers.

Why has no one been arrested or fired for the IRS’s targeting of political opponents? The president pretended to be outraged when he promised to get to the bottom. All we got was lip service and nothing else.

Why did the president and his cronies lie again to the American people about the attack at our embassy in Benghazi? The bipartisan Senate report stated he knew it was a terrorist attack within 15 minutes after the attack began, yet for weeks, he and his administration lied saying it was caused by a video. So far, this administration has done nothing to find who is ultimately responsible for allowing the deaths of four more Americans.

Then there are all the blatant lies about health care. The progressives have lied from the very beginning of this bill. If the American public would have known from the beginning what the progressives had in store for America, it most likely would not have passed. The liberal media even jumped onto this lie wagon to help mislead the public by promoting the lies.

It’s time that Americans wise up and realize the insidious way the progressive movement is trying to destroy our country.

We desperately need politicians who are true statesmen with high integrity.
