“The President has a list.”
“ Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against
," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money. America
Are you worried?
Richard Nixon's "enemies list" appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.
Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having "less-than-reputable records," the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that "quite a few" have also been "on the wrong side of the law" and profiting at "the expense of so many Americans."
Say, have you used your God-Given and Constitutional Right to contribute to somebody’s Presidential Campaign? It doesn’t matter who you gave to, but did you give? If you did, isn’t it wonderful to live in a free Country where you can do such things without fear of reprisals by an out of control government? Or an out of control megalomaniac who doesn’t give a flying leap for the rule of law?
, I’m talking about “Mmm! Mmm! Mmm! Barack Hussein Obama!” the one on the Oval Orifice who doesn’t care about the Constitution. He wouldn’t know what it was if it knocked him over. (NOTE TO the Slackless Service and Department of Hussein’s Sycophants; I am not advocating violence against the Obamessiah. This is used to illustrate a point.) Virginia
Perhaps after I donate to Mr Romney’s campaign, using my God-Given and Constitutional right to do so, Mr Obama will send the Slackless Service (oh, I’m sorry, the Secret Service!) to investigate me. Hopefully, those agents will keep their trousers on and their “Anthony Wieners” inside? Or he could order Janet Clownitano and the Department of Hussein’s Sycophants to arrest me? WAIT! Why doesn’t he send a TSA “officer” to feel me up! After all, it appears to be all they’re good for. That, and making toddlers cry. That sweet 4-year old girl sure looked like a terrorist to me. She must’ve been to a Tea Party protest.
Or Mr Obama could send his butt-buddy Mr Richard Trumka out here to “ … take me out.” Note to Mr Trumka, you come out here, you come by yourself, child. Then you can show me man to man and face to face (without any of your goons) how mature you are. Think you can do that? Because I don’t. Just to keep you honest (I’m trying not to spit as I write that) I’ll have a member of Law Enforcement of my choosing here. Just to make sure you obey the rule of law. Of course, fat chance of that happening.
