What will it take?

Approximately 854,00 people now hold top secret government clearances, and 33 building complexes have been built in and around Washington in the last 11 years, reportedly for secret use. Government secrecy and spying has increased, as most know, to scary proportions.

The government "of, by, and for" the people has plus or minus 2 million national secrets. Only government knows who and what are secreted. Mr Obama promised open government. Just happens most of his promises have been broken. Congress seems to be in a stupor, as it allows this man freedom to change law, make law, and act as some sort of deity. He is far from anything resembling a deity, except in his own mind.

Mr. Obama stated publicly that “I can do anything I want to do.” He wants you to think he said it in a joking manner. His actions and demeanor show that he really believes he can do whatever he wants. If Congress does not put brakes on his actions, imagine where America will be with three more years of his undisciplined disregard for our Constitution, which he swore to defend and protect. Maybe his idea of protecting it is to see that it stays under protective glass as only an object to be displayed to his subjects. He has surely strayed from the moral concepts and freedoms intended by the writers of that great document.

Coupled with his unconstitutional executive orders and the above, the future is becoming dim and unsure for true patriots who believe in a sovereign America with a moral compass and understanding of what made this such a great country.

We continue to borrow billions daily to feed the insatiable appetite of government gone wild.

What will it take to right so many wrongs?
