By consent of the governed

The outrage in Benghazi appears to center around another Obama administration gun-running operation, this time not to Mexican drug dealers, but to al-Qaeda "rebels" in Syria. It seems, despite administration and Fifth Column media denials, that the objective of the attack on the facilities in Benghazi was to capture arms stored there, being sold and transshipped by Turkish middlemen. The jihadists apparently decided that paying for the arms was silly, when security was non-existent. The storage facility was like an old woman with a purse, on a south Bronx street at midnight.

Thus, we have an ambassador, albeit a very suspect one, brutally raped and murdered along with three other Americans, and as with the government agents murdered during Fast and Furious, a president who clearly doesn't give a flying hoo-hah. He not only doesn't care, he has tried to cover up the administration's criminal activity and its aiding and abetting our enemies for cheap, self-serving political gain. Unfortunately for them, they are incredibly inept and incompetent at this sort of subtlety, and even with the full complicity of the Fifth Column media, the truth has come out.

The same rampant disregard for law and the Constitution was clearly evident, too, in the November 6 elections. There is absolutely no possible way that Obama could have won the election, especially with the margins claimed. All the rigged pre-election polls suggested Romney would win with at least comfortable margins, as would several conservative Senate and Congressional candidates, like Josh Mandel in Ohio, and Allen West in Florida. Instead, we find that in unbelievable numbers of precincts, not one person voted for Romney — zero, zip, nada. Just like in Venezuela, or the old USSR, eh? In numerous districts, more votes were cast than there were voting age people, and voting machines appeared rigged to only cast votes for Obama. Many people reported arriving at the polls only to be told that they had already voted. Busloads of people showed up who couldn't remember their supposed addresses without referring to copies of their alleged electric bill that they used for ID. Interestingly, Obama did not win a single state where a photo ID was a requirement to vote.

So, we are faced with a government illegally engaged in supplying weapons to our Islamist enemies and international drug dealers, and holding on to power through massive and blatant election fraud. We also have a news media up to its eyebrows in covering all this up. But worst of all, we have the supposed opposition party, the allegedly conservative Republicans, cowering in the shadows, uttering not a word of protest.

Where, I will ask for the umpteenth time since the Usurper was "elected" in 2008, are the demands for impeachment? Where are the demands for special prosecutors to investigate the obvious and myriad crimes committed by Obama and the members of his administration? Where are the investigative "journalists" digging out the ugly facts so the prosecutors can indict and incarcerate? This, clearly, is a rhetorical question, since we all know the answer.

By the way, when someone goes to work for the federal government, whether in the military, the Secret Service, the Department of Agriculture, or whatever, they take an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. There is nothing in the oath that says that it only applies some of the time, or under certain conditions. Nor is there anything that states, or even implies, that the oath no longer applies if you leave government service (Yes, ALL government employees, hired or elected, are public servants!). Thus, it seems that anyone who ever took the oath has seriously violated it if they voted for Barack Hussein Obama, and is violating it if they do nothing right these wrongs.

We, the People, lost control of our government years ago, but the consequences have never been as undeniably conspicuous as they are today. We are on the verge of being taxed out of existence as a free, capitalist nation. The Constitution has been allowed to become just a "damn piece of paper" and our rights something determined by government, not God. Our military is being gutted. Our religious heritage is being crushed and our freedom to express our religious beliefs is being destroyed. The police are being turned into paramilitary forces, with unlimited surveillance powers, and groups reminiscent of the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany are being given the same power as the police. All this and more, without a peep of protest from those we thought were our representatives in what used to be our government.

I, for one, do not recognize the new government as legitimate, and hereby withdraw my consent to be governed by it. The Secession Movement is the best thing to happen in this country since 1913. I fully support it. What about you?
