On Memorial Day as I watched the Muslim-in-Chief speak at Arlington National Cemetery my anger rose until I thought I might have a stroke.   The nerve, the unmitigated gall of this person, to speak on that day, in that place, made me wish fervently that there was some way to get him out of office and out of my country.   He is the most anti-American president ever, and for him to say anything about our troops, whom he despises, is enough to make me want to vomit…I despise him that much.

Many Americans and I don’t believe that the Imposter-in-chief is one, were in attendance at that, and other memorial services around the country.   It would be difficult to find another speaker, anywhere in these United States, that spoke such empty words.   Were it possible for me to have attended that service in Arlington my presence would be all over the evening news because I would have shouted as loudly as I could that “You are a liar” to the anti-American president.

Even as we take notice of the thousands of true, loyal, Americans who served and are serving, this administration is decimating the Armed Forces to the point where it would be difficult to sustain, much less win, a large-scale war.  Our wins in Iraq and Afghanistan are being shamed by the savages of ISIS running rough-shod through those lands.   We trained them, we equipped them, we depended upon them and they have rewarded us by murdering us in green-on-blue attacks, turning tail and running in the face of an inferior force.

Once we were “Fortress America” and we armed our friends and they fought alongside our troops.  Then we had tried and true friends.   We cannot depend on some of those friends now, and through a series of political twists and turns, we find that we are aiding present enemies and the few true friends that we still have, have no idea of how to take America because we present different faces to different groups.   When will the patriots in the United States band together, oust this administration and install a group that will put the country first.   This is no longer a Democrat or Republican problem, because in the mind of the enemy if you are American you are to be killed.

If science fiction could come true, we could create Terminator-like robots that would take to the battlefield with no thoughts about gathering votes or being liked.  Their job, their only job, would be to defeat the enemy and in such a manner that they would never again rise up and threaten the peace of the world.   The United States has the technology, I believe, to mass-produce these types of soldiers.   They would be directed by live members of the armed forces, from miles away.

We have bomb-disabling robots that even city police forces have.  We have drones that can fly overhead and even direct other drones to enemy targets.  There is a long-range rifle that I read about that will fire a bullet that goes around corners.   Ships at sea can shoot missiles hundreds of miles and demolish the target.   All of this is now, so why are we repeating the mistake of trying to fight the last war again.   Once we held the secret of nuclear bombs and we were the only superpower in the world.   Why are we so determined to allow our great nation to be cut off at the knees because of some delusional thinking?    Wake up, America!  

Politics, at least in the United States, seems to be more interested in getting re-elected, and that is a rotten way to run a country.   There should be no career politicians.   The founding fathers never meant there to be.   Men were to be elected to office, serve their term and then return to their homes and jobs.   Career politicians tend to come to believe that they have a vested interest in the seat that they hold.   From the president on down, term limits…knowing that you will be leaving on such-and-such a date, should give you the impetus to do the best job you can while you’re in office.   Once you know that you’re going to remain in office ad infinitum it then becomes a game to show up, do as little as you need to do, pacify those who need it, and keep getting those perks.

Am I upset?  You’re damn right I am.   My country is run by an anti-American, probably foreign-born Muslim-in-hiding and there are few voices being raised against him.   There are legal options to removing presidents, senators, representatives, and even justices of the Supreme Court.   The founding fathers were visionaries, knowing that checks and balances should keep everything going as it should.   Now, along comes a man who flouts every document on which this country operates, and is aided and abetted by a Congress that allows lawlessness to overcome sacred documents.

Wake up America…your country needs you, desperately.
