LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obama playbook strips away rights

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

It’s apparent to me that most people in their 20s and 30s have little concern about what is going on in their own country.

On several occasions, I have witnessed interviews conducted by Fox News with people in these age groups. Most of them haven’t known what Benghazi, Libya, was about and have never heard of the scandals involving the Internal Revenue Service or the Associated Press reporters.

Most also have never heard about the bogus charges filed by U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. accusing a Fox News reporter named James Rosen of having ties with terrorists.

As President Obama’s protege, Mr. Holder has enjoyed the protection of the Oval Office going back to the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal, all the while turning this country into a police state. As for our illustrious president, he sits in his Eiffel Tower in the clouds, exempt from criticism from the media, which has kept the general public uninformed that we are losing our country.

To be frank, Mr. Obama has a dangerous agenda: Divide the masses by demonizing one class against another. Investigate dissenters as with the latest scandal involving the National Security Agency, making a list for future use. Make industry reliant on the government until the time comes to take it over. Make the masses depend on government handouts, then when the time is right, get involved in a war, bringing all together to support this fictitious democratic ideology. When all is said and done that ideology will strip away the rights of the American people.
