Out of Control

Today, the federal government is out of control. Everywhere you look, it is intruding into our lives. And how is it accomplishing this? Through deceit and intimidation. Some examples include forcing an unworkable Obamacare on us, using the IRS to attack and silence opponents of its policies, marginalizing local andstate rights, destroying energy sectors in order to promote unworkable and unrealistic renewable energy policies, and using the EPA to control water (Delta smelt) and our food supply by getting rid of ranchers and cattle (Bundy Ranch-Nevada). On a governmental level, Obama is ignoring the Constitution, rewriting and making laws and weakening our military, whose job is to protect us.

When is enough enough, America? Our liberties, freedoms, and rights are being destroyed more each day. When will you stand up for what is right?
