Change we can believe in?

In Government Reforms, Obama, Terrorists on December 24, 2014 at 4:13 pm

Change we can believe in?  Where is the indignation?

Change we can believe in apparently now involves targeting the hero’s who put their lives on the line to keep this country safe, free and a country of laws. Where did my country go?

In November, Robert O’Neill appeared on Fox News Channel to discuss his role in the raid that killed bin Laden on May 1, 2011 in Abbotabad.  So now the United States Government is going to investigate if he committed a crime?  Disclosed national secrets? The photo of the protected leaders watching a video screen worried that things would go wrong, went viral.  The lives of the men of seal team six were on the minds of family, friends and according to accounts we “American Citizens” were allowed to hear or read, those brave soldiers thought they were on a suicide mission.  Were any of us worried about the political lives of the elected officials?  Safety seated at a conference table inside a secured bunker in the White House.  Protected by secret service, capital police, the entire military, FBI, Washington Police Department, and what ever other protective measures offered to the Washington Elite.  The thought struck me then, of not revenge but the idea that harming the United States will be punished.  911 would not stand as an action by a group.  War will result in war. Freedom is costly.  Seal team six as President Obama exposed in his victory lap about how “We Got Him” were the men who were willing to put their own lives on the line to protect our reputation from harm.  To insure other would be terrorist that this will not stand.

Change we can believe in? The hardest part of the new “change” has been that the continuity of the United States Government is a mess.  What do we believe in?  Dictators?  I’m now told that 50 years of not talking to a Communist who once aimed Nuclear Missiles at my country is no longer a good idea.  The Castro’s have  never been nice to my country or according to free Cubans good to their people as well.  But now I’m told that it’s better to befriend them.  Change we can believe in?

My government told me that Benghazi was caused by a really bad movie that caused a group to want to kill an Ambassador that begged for more security.  He was denied that privilege by someone, who’s name I will probably never really know.  But Somehow the Soldier who was willing to fly into enemy territory to seek revenge on a known bad guy is under investigation.  Change we can believe in?  I think not.

When a thief of whom I have seen the theft on video and don’t need political commentary.  Attacks a police officer in his car, and is shot during the officers defense of his own life, is the reason for burning down the town of Ferguson, but I’m told by my President it was because he was black makes me wonder if this is, Change we can believe in?

No longer is many school districts is a child of color allowed to be expelled.  The teacher may be bullied, the other students might not have the opportunity to learn that days subject because the race is now the primary issue, not the actions.

The IRS has spent millions of American Tax payer money protecting emails from it’s own employees and stalling congress yet the government has the ability to investigate one lone soldier?

Change we can believe in?  North Korea is now embolden to attack a US company and destroy free speech.  President Obama didn’t condemn North Korea as much as he attacked the leaders of Sony about their decision.  Some change!

Details of the raid were confirmed by U.S. officials shortly after it occurred. The raid itself was dramatized in the 2012 movie “Zero Dark Thirty.” With private briefings for the director by the Administration.  National Security?  Freedom?  Desk Jobs.

Change we can believe in?  Robert O’Neill, was willing to give his life to seek an end to the Osama Bin Laden Story.  He won.  Americans can not let this story become about punishing the victors.  Why would any soldier be willing to offer up his life or liberty to an America that is willing to break the back of a political system.  Courts, Lawyers, Private Protection, and his own personal safety. What is happening?  Where are the checks and balances?  Patriots?

Change we can believe in? President Obama should be honoring Seal Team Six and Robert O’Neill, not allowing him to become a metaphor of intimidation by a federal government.

Change we can believe in? Our collective freedoms matter, and must be protected.  It requires a collective America.  One that respects its freedom.  That means respecting our hero’s both living and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
