Could Syria be a smokescreen?

smokescreen

Smokescreen: something designed to obscure, confuse, or mislead

Example:”The truth was hidden behind a screen of lies”

Source: Mirriam Websters online Dictionary.

I want to throw a  proposition out there. Is it possible that President Obama’s rush to war in Iraq is really just a smokescreen? One intended to distract the voting public-especially the right wing public-from some of the more pressing and real issues that face America.

Issues such as immigration reform and repeal of what is euphemistically called-Obama care? I submit that it is ,and,whats more, it has been a total success.

Everyone seems to be talking about nothing else but the possibility of war in the middle east. Meanwhile work goes forward on granting some kind of amnesty to illegal aliens in this country either through legislation or-if need be-executive order.

This strategy has proven especially effective in neutralizing the opposition of the Tea Party and conservatives of all stripes.

Mean while Harry Reid ,Nancy Pelosi,Marko Rubio and others march steadily forward in their quest to allow illegals to become illegal and open a flood gate of legal immigration and Republicans in Congress prepare to cave once again on both issues.

President Obama and his progressive friends in the Republican party must be absolutely giddy as they have succeeded in taking all the attention off from themselves and onto an absolute non issue in Syria.

If they  cared so much about the killing over there why have they  waited until now to get excited about it after 100.000 lives were snuffed out? Were those lives any less valuable than the ones killed by Sarin? Hardly.

Friends this will go down not only as one of the greatest boondoggles in history,but also as one of the greatest instances of bamboozling the citizens of this nation if we do indeed decide to go to war with Syria.

Come to think of it smokescreens really are an incredibly effective tool in the hands of dishonest politicians!

An Original American Radical

Filed under: liberty,self determination,Thomas Jefferson — Gene @ 10:32 pm

Thomas Jefferson an original American radical. If o’l Tom were alive today he would probably be branded an “extremist”

Thomas Jefferson, scholar, diplomat, revolutionary,scientist,president. In many was a man born out of time. A genius whose ideas and thoughts still shape our world generations after his death.

This intellectual giant was part of a class of extraordinary men who dreamed of freedom and made it happen. Guided by the principles of the word of God, and the Bible’s emphasis on freedom, these men-not only dreamed of-but brought into existence-freedom unmatched in human history.

These men dreamed a dream of freedom, of self determination, and an ideal that said “government is but a necessary evil”

What would Mr. Jefferson think of some of the events happening in our time.? Would he say that those who are angry over government usurpation of power-as well as -a total disregard for the Constitution- are extremist,out of control, an angry mob?

I think he would, but he would say such things, from the public’s point of view. He would realize that the people-in their wisdom- were rightfully outraged by the shenanigans of a rogue government.

Listen to Thomas Jefferson in his own words.

“The happiness of governments like ours-wherein the people are truly the mainspring-is that they are never to be despaired of. When an evil becomes so glaring as to strike them generally-they arouse themselves-and it is redressed”

This man had a head on his shoulders. He realized that the driving force of this nation was not the government but the people.

He knew that all real progress, change, security and freedom, lay not in governmental control, but in the wisdom and genius of the people.

Today we have a government that seems to have forgotten that the people are the master. Mr. Jefferson understood that the true role of government was to serve the people, and to provide, an atmosphere, where they could achieve Their goals and aspirations, not bow, scrape,and serve, an out of control government.

Where would Thomas Jefferson stand today, squarely on the side of townhallers, and teaparty people, and anyone else who yearned for freedom and SELF determination,not government fiat.
