There is one thing for sure, the United States of America will look very different from what it is today in a few years. The only question is what that reality will look like. The outcome of the November elections and the presidential election in 2016 will determine to a great degree what kind of country we are going to have in the future.
Today we have an imperial president flagrantly violating the Constitution in order to further his radical, Marxist agenda. We have government spending that is out of control and a national debt that has long past the redline that historically calls into doubt the viability of a country’s finances. We have an administration that has no qualms about using the vast power of the federal government to harm its political opposition. Racial relations are at an all time low. Our national leadership is nonexistent in global affairs and serious, deadly national security threats are not only looming but crossing the horizon globally. The question is, is this the kind of government that Americans really want?
I believe there is still time to save the country. If we can elect a leader, an adult, who will deal efficiently with all of the issues listed above, I believe America can recover. However, that is a BIG if! In the meantime, we are barrelling towards a Constitutional crisis. The most obvious issue facing the country regarding the separation of powers is the Obama administration’s threat to legalize five million illegal immigrants currently in the country. The President’s lawlessness will be so exposed by this illegal power grab and action that the country will be thrown into an uproar. I’m talking fire and brimstone, riots in the streets, cats and dogs sleeping together, Bull Run kind of turmoil. Only time will tell if our Dear Leader will undertake this criminal act. If he does, there will be consequences for the country and his party.
While this situation plays itself out, there are many other paths of crisis that could work themselves out in the short run. First and foremost, there is the IRS scandal. We now hear from some in the IRS that, well what do you know, Lois Lerner’s emails probably still exist somewhere in the technological cloud at the tax collection agency. If this email trail leads to the White House, well, all bets are off. Will the liberal, corrupt, mainstream media finally get on the impeachment bandwagon? Another variable is whether or not this will happen prior to the elections in November.
Also working its way through the court system is the Speaker of the House, John Boehner’s lawsuit against President Obama for overstepping his Constitutional authority. The legal opinions on the outcome of this legal action are all over the map so it is a real wildcard that could easily go either way.
We also have the House of Representatives Select Committee investigation of the Benghazi disaster. What if the White House is found to have been derelict in its duty to protect our diplomats? Or, what if worse information comes out, that the agenda driving the decision making process was based on political factors and not the best interest of the United States? With all of these issues getting closer to their final outcomes, American citizens can be sure that they will witness history over the next couple years. I hear they quit teaching civics in high school; make sure your child watches this crisis to get an education he may not be getting in our government schools.
