Letter: The President threatens our democracy
The President threatens our democracy
To the Editor:
Will conservatives ever be treated fairly by government? The answer is no! The majority of federal workers around the country are Democrats with a very high percentage in DC. Many of our federal employees are represented by labor unions who donate 95 percent of the their campaign dollars to Democratic candidates. There is an inbuilt prejudice against conservatives by government workers, as they fear conservatives will eliminate their jobs or cut their pay.
Add to that liberal bias a Marxist/Socialist President who has appointed extreme leftists to the cabinet and Czars to run the government and you have a real problem. Then President Obama fueled the fire in 2010, when he stated, “Conservative groups are a threat to our Democracy” and should not get tax-exempt status. Five Senators also asked the IRS to target conservative groups asking for tax-exempt status. Obama and the Democratic Senators knew full well that while the conservative applications were being stalled, the IRS was expediting liberal applications.
So, this is what we know so far. The IRS targeted conservative groups and any group opposing Obama’s agenda. The targeted list includes the religious groups, anti-gay marriage groups and pro-Israel groups. The IRS audited large Romney financial backers shortly after making their donations. The IRS released the names of conservative donors to rival liberal groups — a felony. Conservative businesses were attacked by as many as five federal agencies at once. The EPA released rancher names to political environmental groups. The Federal Election Commission falsely accused an Illinois Republican running for Senator and put him out of the race. Fox News Reporter Jim Rosen’s phone and emails were tapped by the Justice Department.
The obvious conclusion is that Obama and the Democratic Party used the machinery of government to silence, intimidate and destroy their political opponents. You got to still believe in Santa Claus if you do not think this was a coordinated effort directed by Obama. We are, in fact, facing a serious threat to our democracy — but it is by Obama and the Democrats who believe the end justifies the means. That effort is aided and abetted by the liberal media who won’t even cover the scandals. We know we are in trouble when representative Jim McDermott said in the IRS hearings that the conservative groups deserved to be targeted because they were opposed to Obama’s agenda.
