WHAT WILL OUR LEGACY BE
Andrea K. Robson
Legacy: anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor, or predecessor.
We have a rich history and legacy handed down by our Founding Fathers. We have the legacy of a Republic, a government of the people, by the people and for the people, a government where the ultimate authority resides with the people.
I wonder, what our Founding Fathers would think about the current state of the Republic. What would they think of what we have done with this Miracle that changed the world? How would they react to the current events, what would they think of our free press and it’s reporting, or lack thereof?
What we see happening, in this country is exactly like Pravda in Russia! The Liberal Propaganda machine is in FULL swing! The Main Stream Media (MSM) has been anything but present in this country during the past four years, and at present they are making a political effort to simply run the clock out on the real issues, the issues that matter most to American’s, to everyday ordinary American’s. Where has the MSM been on the Benghazi issue? Not a word, only silence.
After being slammed in the debate, and having the horror of four American’s Murdered under his watch looming over his head, Obama is going to do anything and everything he can to discredit Mitt Romney in these final days, and lying is just the tip of the iceberg! Obama is an avowed Marxist, he has very strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood; Obama does not care about you, Obama does not care about America, and he could care less about the four American’s that lost their lives in Benghazi! These men are nothing more than an annoyance to him, something that is further muddying the waters of his re-election.
Now we have the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and the devastation she left behind and the President is using this, as he has used the death of Bin Laden as a political photo op, a political prize! A way to look presidential? Well, personally, I say too little too late Mr. President! There are people suffering, who need gas, need food, need water, who are trapped in neighborhoods without anything! They need clothing, they need help and the President is doing nothing other than getting on his bully pulpit, telling everyone that things are going well and FEMA is on top of it all! Remember he stated, “we will cut through red tape,” and then soon after making that statement, non-union crews from Alabama were turned away by New Jersey; Really! We have folks suffering without power, heat, water and they are turning away help because they are NOT union workers! Shocking! It is way too early for the President to be patting himself on the back, pounding on his chest and taking credit. Instead of trying to score political points; it is time to focus on the issue at hand, getting help to the folks that need the help! But then, why should these individuals expect anything different then what was offered and afforded to those four men in Benghazi?
What about Benghazi? The only folks reporting on Benghazi are Fox News. Where is the MSM? Once again they remain silent on an issue that has dwarfed Watergate, and made Watergate look like child’s play, more of the same, silence. The President has refused to take questions on Benghazi; he has not taken the time from his busy campaign schedule to hold a single press conference on this issue. As the days go by information continues to drip like a runny faucet about that fateful night on September 11, in Benghazi, and the horrific circumstances of the deaths of four American’s.
In a desperate attempt to regain lost ground, President Obama was able to manage to find time in his busy campaign schedule to arrange a photo op as the hurricane bore down on the East Coast; the picture showing the President in the Situation Room, receiving an update on the hurricane. http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/332259/poser-united-states-michelle-malkin# Where the hell was the President when those four men in Benghazi needed him, he was in the Situation Room watching the live streaming video! Where’s the photo op of that Mr. President?
So what is the message we leave for the next generation, what is the legacy we pass forward? What will they write about our generation in the history books? That we were the generation that lost its honor, its dignity? That we were the generation that had no scruples, that were so self-absorbed, so self-centered, so into self-gratification that we did not bother to hold our elected officials, and indeed our President accountable for the deaths of four American’s, that we did not hold our President accountable for Treason? Or do we leave the message to future generations, and future Presidents, that we will pursue what is right and just, by holding accountable and punishing those involved to the fullest extent of the law?
I leave you with a quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero, the Founders favorite expositor of Natural Law, “Therefore law [of the Creator] is the distinction between things just and unjust, made in agreement with that primal and most ancient of all things, Nature; and in the conformity to Nature’s standard are framed those human laws which inflict punishment upon the wicked and protect the good.”
