Our nation's security has definitely been sacrificed for dubious political motives and the sooner we all recognize and accept that fact, the quicker we will correct things and pull America out of the current international threat to our very existence. This has been building for a long time and it's not just an issue where we conservatives can blame everything on Democrats. There have been plenty of Republicans who have gone along with lax border security in their misguided effort to increase the flow of illegal immigrants, most of whom are either low skilled and the numbers likely include those coming for the worst motives. And they have often stuck their noses in areas where we either didn't have the resources available, or the will, to finish the job. Never start a combat action that you don't want to clearly win.
There has been nothing in recent months done on the border to preclude a terrorist from walking into the country with weapons which could cause major damage and death. While we have the TSA hassling our own citizens at airports, our borders are porous and wide open. And while our lack of a border policy and nearly non-existent border controls are a critical shortfall, we also have a critical problem which has been developing in our military since Obama took office. We are at a weaker posture due to budget cuts, draw downs and social engineering than we have been in many years and all indications lead to the problem getting worse before it gets better. At the same time the world is more dangerous than I can remember in my lifetime.
None of these issues are due to the work of our brave military or our equally brave Border Patrol folks. They are directly related to the policies of a President who wants us to be weak, wants our nation to be equal to all others instead of being exceptional. He will do anything in his power to accomplish his goals including the use of any agency or any power that he can adjust to allow him to do so. And he has made sure that only those who agree with or will not challenge his extreme progressive views are appointed to high positions in the various agencies and in the military.
Notice that I'm not saying that the agency heads and senior military officials are all true believers in the Obama political culture; I'm just saying that those that aren't are either conspicuously silent or don't care. In either case, they are either amoral, cowards or so career advancement oriented that they put their personal positions subordinate to their opportunities at any cost.
I think the military is where this is most apparent, just by looking at the number of senior military officials who have been purged suddenly from their duties or even in the body language of those still in place. They continue to support the President in the most outrageous strategic decisions while showing slight indications of displeasure in their motions and expressions. We could certainly use a Peter Pace, a Douglas McArthur, or a George Patton right about now.
What's even more shameful is that most of the loyal opposition , the Republican national establishment and their Washington leadership, complains and complains and complains some more but will not stand up and fight. Instead, John Boehner surrenders, Mitch McConnell does another backroom deal, and Reince Preibus justifies it while Karl Rove tries to expand upon it. After what was seen recently in Mississippi, this group is really no better than the Democrats. They might even be worse if you consider things from the viewpoint that they should no better.
So that leaves us with the question: What are we going to do about it? Stay tuned for the answer for I think we'll know fairly soon. This matter can't wait much longer and if we want to have a future, it had better be now. I'm not talking about violence; I'm talking about a unified stand against what we know is wrong. Perhaps a little bit of civil disobedience on a massive scale is in order, but whatever happens, better buckle those seat belts, it's going to get rough for a while. Stay alert, stay strong, and stand for the real truth and meaning of the United States of America.
