Our president has decided that America is a bad and misguided country who is not entitled to tell any other country what to do unless that country is Jewish. It sees our military, our consumption as a barrier to peace and harmony in the world. He engages enemies of freedom and supports an attempted dictator from Honduras. our president believes that prosecuting the people who are responsible for defending this great naton despite the pleading against such a move by seven previous CIA directors who are both Democrat and Republican.
Benjamin Franklin and all the founding founders that I have studied would not only disagree with President Obama but also probably have him thrown out of the room for insulting their intelligence if he were to make a speech like he did at the United Nothing on 9/23/09.
Benjamin Franklin clearly wrote: "The very fame of our strength and readiness would be a means of discouraging our enemies; for 'tis a wise and true saying, that 'One Sword often keeps another in the scabbard.' The way to secure peace is to be prepared for war. They that are on their guard, and appear ready to recieve their adversaries, are in much less danger of being attacked than the supine, secure and negligent.
Franklin also stated: "Our security lies, I think, in our growing strength, both in numbers and wealth; that creates an increasing ability of assisting this nation in its wars, which will make us more respectable, our friendship more valued, and our enmity feared; thence it will soon be thought proper to treat us not with justice only, but with kindness, and thence we may expect in a few years a total change of measures with regard to us; unless, by neglect of military discipline, we should lose all martial spirit, and our Western people become as tame as those in the Eastern dominions of Britain [India], when we may expect the same oppressions; for there is much truth in the Italian saying, 'Make yourselves sheep, and the wolves will eat you."
Above taken from the writings of Benjamin Franklin and quoted in the book - "The 5000 Year leap - Principles of Freedom 101," a book that every American who believes in the principles of the United States of America should read.
America Wake up! this president is not only a danger to this country but to the welfare and peace of the world.
