Wake up! Terrorists are running America ~ By Craig R. Smith

For all the columns that I may have posted in the last few days that may have given you any feeling of hopelessness, this one by Craig R. Smith should sooth your fears and anxiety about what our future holds for us. Craig hits it out of the park in this one. It is ultimately upbeat, and it is uniting. It is time to quit worrying about our specific differences, as that is the enemy's plan. The enemy would not want us to be united on the general principles of working together on the common goal of fighting for our freedom. We haven't yet lost it totally, so while we can, let's keep the freedom movement going, together. Divided we will fall, but United we will stand! We will continue to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. Just sayin'...
We're an America built on hard work, honesty and personal responsibility and a nation that had and will have again the "can do" attitude. We're a country of people who neither need nor want the government to provide their every single need. We're a group of individuals who know if we all have a common goal and don't allow the politicians to divide us, stereotype us and put us into different categories, we can achieve whatever we set our minds to.

So in November when you go to the polls, join me in saying, "Out with the terrorists and in with the freedom, the Constitution and a government of the people, by the people and for the people." I refuse to allow anyone, especially a group of radical liberals, to take away the America of freedom and opportunity and replace it with cradle-to-grave socialist dogma.

Will anyone join me?

Terrorists come in all shapes and sizes nowadays and all races and religions. Some are tall, some are short, fat and thin. The one common thread, however, is their ability to employ fear to achieve their warped and perverted goals. Fear is a terrorist's stock-in-trade.

Let's face facts: Blowing one's self up is a rather messy proposition, and in doing so you may meet your objective but never get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. That is, unless you are an Islamic terrorist and believe those 72 virgins will show up.

Threat of death produces fear. However, it doesn't take a genius to bring it to pass. Life can be taken rather easily. Kingsley Amis said,
Death has this much to be said about it:
You don't have to get out of bed for it.
Wherever you happen to be they bring it to you.
The most effective terrorists are those who can terrorize without the messy process of explosions or the certain death that follows. Those terrorists can only intimidate with the threat of future death and destruction.

The terror the likes of Saddam Hussein and other dictators employed arrived in the form of the fear of something: fear of rape, torture or future loss of freedom. Going to jail removes freedom in a most pronounced way.

A burglar utilizes terror as he holds a gun to your chest while asking for your wallet. It is a very efficient way to separate you from your wallet – far more so than politely asking you to hand it over. The appearance of a gun instantly invokes terror. And the fear that follows is extremely convincing.

A spouse or a child ranting, raving and assuring he/she is going to make your life miserable will alter behavior incredibly fast when others in the home know if that person ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

As absurd as you think it is, all are forms of terrorism. Some more severe, some far less but all nevertheless effective in providing for the terrorist that which they seek: fear! And fear can force people to make very irrational decisions to sustain life or maintain peace.

Therefore the terror of challenging a president turned dictator is the only explanation for the absolute silence coming from Congress and the Republicans when the Obama administration makes totalitarian and unconstitutional decisions.

Since when can a president travel overseas and enter into an arms reduction treaty without the consent of the Congress? How can he reduce our nuclear stockpile without one peep of opposition from either side of the aisle? Where are the voices of "loyal" opposition when Mr. Obama makes these unilateral decisions on behalf of all Americans without any prior announcement? What about the "patriotic dissent" Hillary shrieked about during the Bush years?

How can a president offer additional financial support to the Palestinians who elected terrorists to run their country and not be challenged by one senator or congressman? Or even a newspaper or mainstream media outlet?

How can a president fire the CEO of a publicly traded company or shut down an entire industry simply by calling for a moratorium and never be required to explain himself to the people? How can a president offer amnesty to illegals aliens by the fiat of an executive order, and in the process, neglect the will of 60 percent of Americans?

The only answer is fear. He is terrorizing the Congress, the media and now even the American people.

What else can explain an emotionless and non-effective Congress allowing this president to do whatever he wishes without one word of protest before a microphone or a fiery speech on the floor of the House? What happened to the days when passion-filled speeches rang in the halls of Congress if a democratically elected president acts more like a dictator than a man of the people?
