Obama’s actions may justify a means to his end.


“The end justifies the means.”

How many times have we heard this particular phrase? How many times has the short and long-term results of this particular phrase, impacted you, your family, friends, community?

Granted, this type of behavior/action is not exclusive to the progressives, or their fellow travelers. There have been those, considered by many, to be on the more conservative bent, who have availed themselves of this notion. Unlike most of those of a more socialist nature, the right of center folks, when caught (as is usually the case) are soundly thrashed, by the government, their peers (on the other side of the aisle, of course), the media, and anyone else who so desires.

Think of Nixon…or more to the point Hunt, Liddy, et al, and a certain break in. We all know what happened to them. Now contrast this with Richard Daley (senior), the DNC, and the Kennedy camp. They all worked together, in one way or another, to insure Kennedy’s (JFK) path to the White House was a successful one. Chicago’s votes were crucial in locking in Illinois electoral votes. The votes were produced, one way or another. Yet crickets still chirp, instead of any hue and cry (long-delayed, or otherwise) over “voting irregularities”.

But those two examples are not nearly as damning as what we are dealing with now.

The seeds for our current state of affairs, were planted long ago. It could be argued this particular “philosophical thought” is but a negative part of human nature, beholding to no particular party or political idealism. This strikes me as being pretty close to the truth. However, it has always been used by those who are in a position of power, to either increase their power, or their control, over others. The last part often disguised as “knowing what is best for you (all)”, because we are, after all, smarter than you.

In modern times one only has to look at what took place under almost every President since (and including) FDR. This also holds true for both the House and Senate. But it is only within the past 20 years or so, up until the present day, this bit of verbiage, reached full bloom. To that end, it can be thought of as being “owned” by the progressives and their ilk, lock, stock, and barrel.

And so within the last three years, we have reaped the rewards of “the end justifying the means”.

We have a president (he does not warrant a “capital P”) who is not only unconstitutionally sitting in office (dual citizenship, regardless where he was born, does not count as being a “natural born citizen”), but one who has consistently worked at violating, not only his sworn oath of office, but the very document he was duty bound to uphold and defend…the United States Constitution.

His list of high crimes and misdemeanors is far too long (and growing … not only day by day, but in depth and scope) to be listed here. In any case, you could search the web and find countless references. Two items, stand out at the moment:

1. “Operation Fast and Furious” How much did the president know, and when did he know it? I suspect, as do others , at best, “in the loop” about what was going on. At worst, who knows?

2. While the Senates away, the jester will play. Though others have played fast and loose with the Constitution, none have, in recent memory, done so as blatantly as our current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

But of course, the ends justify the means.

The real question here should be … what “ends” is the Usurper-in-Chief trying to justify?

  1. I’ve come to the conclusion (and hope I am wrong) that the Republicans have chosen to waive any objection to the unconstitutional “recess” appointments because they figure they now have precedent to violate the Constitution themselves when they regain the levers of power. The same goes for the illegal Libyan war effort.

    I had high hopes for the crop of 2010, but I can no longer even think of the lot of them (as well as the statists and outright marxists who sat in congress prior to the 2010 election), without spitting bile and venom. We were told the spending would stop, and there would be a check on the Marxist-in-Chief, but spending has gone up, and the Fascist marches unfettered.

    This can not stand.

  2. One way or another, it most likely won’t. Either we will see any number of States secede from the Union, or there will be revolution/civil war, or we will be a nation of sheeple,,,and the Republic as was envisioned by our forefathers will no longer exist. Perhaps it will break down into separate nation states, or become absorbed by others (China, Russia).

    In any case, it won’t be pretty. And our kids, grandkids, and great grandkids …well, I got a feeling they are not going to like “us” all that much, or have fond memories of same.
