We are semi-officially a lawless, soft (but hardening) tyranny. How else does one explain Lois Lerner not being charged with the numerous crimes she has most certainly committed? As many others have noted, the fix was in as surely as the fix is in on the countless crimes committed by Hillary Clinton and her grubby Clinton Foundation that sells influence at very high prices. Like Lerner, Clinton likely will be deemed above the law by the DOJ and the FBI. General Petraeus and several others were charged, jailed and/or fined for crimes so minimal compared to Hillary's because they did not toe the Obama line: no deviation from the agenda is allowed, no criticism of the regime will be tolerated.
American citizens outside of the protective bubble of the government are not only expendable, they are fodder for bureaucratic abuse. The IRS, the EPA, the DOJ, the VA, and the FEC under Obama are free to target and abuse those of us without the financial or government resources to protect ourselves. The countless good people who were targeted by the IRS were prevented from exercising the freedoms guaranteed to them by the Constitution. The actions of Lerner and the IRS very likely changed the outcome of the 2012 election. That was the plan and it worked. Prevent, with malice aforethought, hundreds of conservative groups across the country from organizing and raising money for their cause and you have silenced millions of people.
What is Obamacare if not bureaucratic abuse? The many lies told in the run-up to its passing are well known now as millions have lost the medical insurance they had. Those who have signed on are paying as much as 200% more for less coverage. All the hype about lower costs was lies. There is no doubt that the administration knew exactly what Obamacare would do to the vast majority of Americans. It was all part of Jonathan Gruber's plan. It would submarine them. It is a massive wealth redistribution scheme but it is failing. Millions caught in the middle class are simply going without medical insurance. They have no choice. Only the people receiving it for free can "afford" it because the rest of us, who cannot afford it, are paying for them.
The media, 90% of which does the administration's bidding, does not report this. Hillary is promising to extend Obamacare to illegal immigrants. This will be the final nail in the coffin of the middle class in one easy move. No matter how much Hillary, Sanders, and the rest of the Left rant and rave about the "rich need to pay their fair share," they pay more than their fair share already. It is the middle class that pays the most for the government programs that subsidize those who pay nothing and receive so much without earning it. Our safety net for the truly indigent has become a cushion for millions who do not, will not, or cannot find work. The Obama economy is a wholesale disaster: 92 million out of the labor force; 51% earning only $30k a year or less! This is a sabotaged economy, not a recovering economy. Only government employees are doing well.
American citizens should know that federal government employees get away with all manner of crimes regularly, crimes for which a non-government citizen would be jailed. Like Lerner and Clinton, they are nearly all above the law. Lerner and Clinton are the tip of a very big iceberg. Because there are so many federal union regulations to protect them, they literally cannot be fired. They get away with doing no work, abusing their spouses, being pedophiles, watching porn on the taxpayer dime, bilking the taxpayer for extravagant vacations (the Obamas are the worst offenders on this score). When such abuses are discovered, government employees may be chastised or demoted but will not be fired, no matter how egregious their misbehavior. No matter what their crimes, they keep their jobs, their pensions, and their phony dignity. Ask any divorce lawyer how many of his or her clients divorcing government employees who have abused them in countless ways get away with their abuse. They can stalk, cheat, beat and bilk their spouses and will not be punished. Government employees are a protected class, as surely as Obama and sanctuary cities have made criminal illegal immigrants a protected class, to the dangerous detriment of law-abiding citizens.
Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton should both be in prison. Both have broken many, many laws, laws that are meant to protect American citizens. Neither of them cares a whit about American citizens. Both knew and know they will never be punished. Hillary expects to be elected to the presidency. We can thank the DC establishment, Left and Right, for this sad state of affairs. Character no long counts for anything. And we can thank the Obama administration for being the most purposefully divisive, lawless, and anti-constitutional in modern history.
