While I was a young infantry soldier waiting for orders to deploy to Iran in 1980 to rescue American hostages, I had a conversation with my sergeant major about whether America could ever be invaded and occupied by a foreign power. His response was, “No way. Besides our military, citizens are also well armed.”
He said if America were to be taken over, it would be from the inside out.
I never imagined I would see this in my lifetime, but that’s precisely what’s occurring under the presidency of Barack Obama. We have a president who behaves more like a dictator than a leader of the free world, and his list of enablers grows and grows. I haven’t seen a president so weak and embarrassing since Jimmy Carter. This man has made America a global laughingstock.
What has made us the greatest nation the world has ever known is being destroyed from the inside out by a man who has promised to “fundamentally transform America.” He’s doing just that. Our rights, provided by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, are looked at as inconvenient and outdated.
