What Difference Does It Make?By Tammy Derouin
Before a Congressional hearing, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked in anger, “What difference at this point does it make?” Much like the shot at Lexington Concord was the shot heard around the world, “What difference does it make” should be the words of trepidation heard around the world.What difference does it make? How long are we going to allow this administration to insult our intelligence? It makes a difference because without morals, principles and the ethical behavior to back them up, we are lost as a nation. Is Clinton implying that we the people should accept, without question, anything the government tells us? The government lied publicly and privately to the family members of those that were killed in Benghazi. The government lied to the American people and then tried to cover up their actions or lack of action. It makes a difference because the truth is the last thing this administration wants the people to know. It matters because there are consequences for the people who elected a dictator.
In his inaugural speech, the ruler dared to embrace the Constitution. His overuse of “we the people” was insulting. He tried to tie together the accomplishments and goals of our founders with the “collective” goals and dreams of today’s progressives. A charismatic speaker/leader, sure knows how to stir up a crowd. Who else in history could do the same? Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Che, and Castro come to mind.
If there is any hope for our country, supporters of this dictatorial administration should have had a wakeup call this past week. Didn’t they hear the jarring sound of a prison door slamming shut? The key skipping down the hallway was for dramatic effect. Is this nation so drunk on entitlements that we can’t see reality through the blur? The American people witnessed quite the show. Act one, included Obama’s fictitious respect for the Constitution. Act two revealed Clinton’s words of indifference and disdain for the American people. I wonder what will take place in Act Three. Maybe the press has a copy of the program. With investigative reporting out, gushing, swooning and coddling are the new prerequisites for the press corp. Was our media schooled at the University of Mao? Maybe it was Pravda U.Obama also stated that the journey was not complete. So where do we stand on the path to communism? We still have a ways before the rulers’ image is embossed on our flag. Nope, it’s been done. At least children haven’t been forced to sing songs of praise to an elected leader in their schools. Nope, it’s been done. Thankfully the ruler hasn’t been shown or referred to as our savior. Nope, that’s been done too. How about the frustration level among the people? It’s being done. Maybe we should give up more of our freedoms for the greater good? It’s being done. All we need then is a crisis. It will be done. What will we have? We’ll have a dictator, done by design.
Now that the Left has successfully placed a dictator at the helm, rewards are sure to come their way. Those that support gay rights received support from the ruler. The ruler is buddy- buddy with the Muslim Brotherhood. He is arming extreme Islamic radicals. I don’t think it’s a secret what happens to gays in the world of Islam. It’s the same fate for women who are accused of cheating on their husbands. Accused of cheating, not proven guilty of cheating. Does the punishment fit the crime? What difference does it make? Eventually the “body part” vote will be revealed as anything but liberating. The hard core environmentalist will also be betrayed. The earth was only a tool, not a concern. The ruler seemed harmless in sheep’s clothing. How’s that wolf outfit looking now?The dictator in chief has never hidden his agenda. He played on the hopes and fears of the people of this nation to achieve his goals. He took advantage of the poor. By promising them benefit after benefit he effectively told them they weren’t capable of taking care of themselves. By demonizing the rich he is penalizing them for being successful. When was the last time you worked for a poor person? It’s the wealthy individuals or corporations that provide jobs. They took the risk. They built it, they own it. Well, at least for now. Once the ruler nationalizes all the companies, it won’t matter where you work. You will be a slave to the state. That union you gave so much of your money to, well, you can thank it for the equality coming your way. Yes, everyone will now be equally poor under a dictator.
