Samuel Adams once said, “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” Now more than ever these powerful words ring true. In the aftermath of the first Presidential debate we see the works of these vain and aspiring politicians. We now see how far they will go to hang on to power. After the President’s terrible debate performance Obama shifted his strategy to lying about Mitt Romney’s position on the issues. He had to because Romney not only schooled the President in regards to economic policy but he also countered all of Obama’s claims in front of 67 million viewers.
The President lost a great deal of credibility and political ground this past Wednesday and he knows it. So his only option now is to lie about his opponent and use the Department of Labor to inflate data on a jobs report that are simply implausible. It shouldn’t have surprised anyone that they were going to get the unemployment number under eight percent by Election Day. They used a flawed methodology to skew the jobs data to get the overall percentage where they wanted it. Many on the right have been talking about this for months. Additionally people shouldn’t have been surprised when Ben Bernanke announced QE3 six weeks out from Election Day. This action is designed to prop up the economy for the short term by injecting more money into an economy that is already saturated with dollars. In the long run the value of our dollar will be destroyed and the purchasing power of each American will be greatly diminished. All of these actions were implemented to create the illusion of a healthy economy. They are designed to fool the people into believing that things are better than they actually are. And the President is using the instruments of government to accomplish this goal.
The reason all this happening is because the President and his team are in survival mode and they will use every dirty trick in the book to win. The President does not have any honor or integrity; he compromised his integrity (if he had any to begin with) long before he was elected President so these dirty tactics come easy for him. He is indeed vain and aspiring and now more than ever the country needs the experience patriots to prevent its ruin. This is the consequences of electing leaders with little or no virtue and this is where we come in. We must do all we can to hold him accountable and get the word out about these tactics. We must spread the word through face to face contact with neighbors, coworkers, family, and friends. The President wants the people to believe what he says and not what they saw during the debate. He wants the people to believe his lie and for the misinformed/uninformed it’s an easy task. This is why as patriots who believe in liberty and freedom we have a responsibility to stand up and prevent the ruin of our nation and it starts with a solid ground game. It starts with us.
