Liberalism's empty claims
TO INTELL EDITORS:
I totally disagree with the content and conclusion expressed by Donald Kaul in his Feb. 2 column, "Obama gives great speech."
Mr. Kaul and many others have praised President Obama's second inaugural address as an example of great oratory. This has been commonly proclaimed for Obama's previous speeches, and undoubtedly, it will be the verdict for his State of the Union address.
We must all understand, however, that the cardinal attribute of a good speaker is honesty. If we listen carefully to what Obama says, we will detect nothing but lies and false promises designed to camouflage his mission to destroy America.
Sadly, our beloved White House has become a den of lies, corruption, secrecy and arrogance. Nebulous promises of "hope and change" and "moving forward" are replacing our country's wholesome ideals and traditional values.
The president's claim of transparency is a big lie. Witness the appointments of many czars best suited to serve in regimes made under the cover of darkness. Beware of the numerous lies to be unveiled during the implementation of Obamacare. Where was the transparency during the enactment of his executive orders, the issuance of volumes of regulations and the last-minute adoption of major policies such as the stimulus package, Obamacare and the fiscal cliff?
To this day, "Fast and Furious" and Benghazi remain major coverups.
All of the president's misrepresentations are nothing but a mask to hide his agenda designed to weaken the military, promote dependency, destroy free enterprise, change the U.S. Constitution, take away our freedoms and restrict people from obeying the commandments of Almighty God.
My conclusion is that liberalism is a lie. Should the voice of liberalism ever tell the truth about itself, it would die.
