Selling Us Out One More Time

View this video, then view it again… and think about what is really going as leaders of the United States and Russia conspire against the American people. The US president is telling the Russian leader that they should be patient. He is telling him that after he is re-elected he would be more flexible in working with our traditional enemy and selling out our God-given rights and traditional allies.

This is something we need to consider, and many see this as just one more indication that Obama is not suited to sit in the oval office any more than he was suited to sit in the Senate. Those of us who care about the security of our nation and the safety of our citizens, as well as the safety of our friends who have stood with us over the years should be outraged at such betrayal. Many of us see the danger and are speaking up and doing what we can to see that the re-election he seeks is denied him by the American people.

But, there is a divide in our great country. Some see the divide as a race based split, somewhat because of videos some crazy lady all excited because she thought she was going to be getting “Obama money” after he was elected to office. It is far more sinister than simple ethnic differences. There are people of all races whose primary concern is not their country, but what their country can do for them. While blindly following this Democrat president they are forgetting the words of member of a kinder, gentler version of that same party. John F. Kennedy implored the nation, “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”

While is pretty obvious what the problem is, there are many among us who just don’t care about loss of sovereignty, safety and national security. Our society has become complacent. Short term thinking places a higher value on the immediate gratification of being on the receiving end of government redistribution. Many are looking to government as the source of all good things rather than their Creator. They are more concerned with their own financial security than that of their country. They do not comprehend the fact that they cannot have one without the other.

It is in this environment that we need to understand that the President’s inclination to undercut our friends and security is of no concern to the self-seekers who only see the government as a source of their livelihood. It has been said that some people work for a living and some people vote for a living.

Our concerns often fall on deaf ears. They don’t even understand them if they do hear them. In their rush to dissipation, they overlook the fact that the long term prospects of keeping the benefits they so desperately desire, is dependent on a strong and vibrant country, not the weakened and ineffective nation our president is creating.

During the first American Revolution, only a quarter to a third of the people rose up against their British masters. Others preferred the comfort and security of English rule, and still others, perhaps the most despicable of all, simple did not wish to get involved. Yet the minority who treasured freedom more than life itself prevailed. Most likely it is because they valued liberty to such an extent that they carried the day and created a free nation.

While the video at the beginning comes a no surprise to many of us who have been following the corruption of our national government, it provides one more decision point where we watch and complain, or where we take the steps necessary to remove this menace to our country and freedom from the White House.
