Our freedom is under siege

To the editor:

Where are the liberal justice seekers now? Why is it that the sanctimonious liberals are so adamant about justice for Trayvon Martin, but could care less about Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of innocent Mexicans?

Could it be that since President Barack Obama and his pathetic justice department are at fault, and someone like Terry is expendable? Barnum Obama and his circus are responsible for this bungled gun running scheme that caused the murder of Terry and hundreds of Mexicans. Obama said he knew nothing about Operation Fast and Furious, yet he needs to invoke executive privilege to save Eric Holder and himself. What is the president hiding? The Terry family deserves answers, and what do we get? We get an attorney general who at first didn't know anything about the operation and then changes his story to Congress at least two times. I guess liberals can't tell the same story twice without a teleprompter. For 18 months, Holder has been stonewalling the congressional investigation of the operation. Do we have executive privilege or executive coverup? Did someone say Richard Nixon?

Based on actions coming from Obama, from this point forward we should now refer to him as Julius Caesar, or emperor. He signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act without congressional approval on Dec. 31. The government can detain anyone it suspects of being a terrorist as long as they want without a trial. This includes American citizens. If you have forgotten, Google it. What happened to a government of, by and for the people?

Recently, Obama decided that he could care less about laws that are in place. Once again, without congressional approval, he told the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to ignore laws that are on the books. Even though I agree that some immigration laws need to be changed, Obama has no right to unilaterally circumvent the law. There is a process in place to have laws enacted or changed and, just like our Constitution, Obama has no use for either. During his first two years in office, he had a super majority in Congress. If he actually cared about these people, he should have had laws passed then. We all know that his recent actions on immigration were taken because there is an election coming in November. Knowing that his economic policies have failed miserably, it was time to purchase some Hispanic votes.

Recently, we overheard Obama whispering to the Russian president, "Wait until I get re-elected, and then I can be more flexible." Who needs Congress, I am the almighty Obama, I am Caesar. If I remember correctly we became a nation in 1776 because we didn't like being ruled by another arrogant clown known as King George III.

Enough of ignoring the Constitution. This November, vote out Obama and his circus of friends. Our very freedom and prosperity are under siege.
