Say It Ain’t So Mr. Obama
What do Mr. Obama, Congress & Rita Crundwell have in common? They all have the ability to abuse public trust and public money. The abuse of our trust and deceitful use of our money by public officials has gone unnoticed for a very long time.
Until recently Rita Crundwell was a well trusted city treasurer and comptroller in Dixon, Illinois. Since 1990 she has been secretly siphoning city money to her personal bank account in order to support her lavish lifestyle and quarter horse breeding business. On November 14, 2012 she was convicted of embezzling $53 million of city money. Obama and Congress are no different from Rita Crundwell, are they? Think about it, the only reason our federal debt is at an all time high is because of the excessive spending habits of Mr. Obama and Congress.
According to the dictionary, embezzlement is defined as “the stealing of money entrusted to one’s care”. Do we not entrust the care of our money in the form of tax dollars to Congress and the President? Do they not abuse that trust by wasting public money and not spending prudently? Of course they do; how else can you explain the financial mess that America is in right now? We are at the edge of a financial cliff; who do you think put us there?
Of course since they are politicians their actions are not referred to as embezzlement; that would make them look bad. Branding politicians as the true embezzlers they are would cause election losses instead of wins…we can’t have that now can we? If we labeled our politicians as crooks it would tarnish their images, oh no, not that.
Ms. Crundwell diverted public money on the sly; Obama and Congress do the same thing but it’s considered legal. Our lovely elected politicians lie, cheat and steal hoping their constituents will not notice. They hide and spin the truth because they believe that Americans are idiots. Well, they got the idiot part right since Americans keep reelecting them.
Our politicians have us believing that their out of control spending and excessive debt is good for us; it’s all for our personal benefit, yeah right. Unfortunately Mr. Obama and the members of Congress did have enough Americans fooled into believing this rot; how else can you explain their re-elections?
Rita Crundwell will be going to jail for 20 or more years for her embezzlement activity; Mr. Obama and the members of Congress will not. These snarly politicians have been put back into office to continue their embezzlement practices.
What will it take for the American voters to understand the concept of public embezzlement? How long can our nation survive if these practices are allowed to continue?
Obamacare plus every other government entitlement program is a form of public embezzlement. Every tax increase to pay for government is a form of embezzlement. Politicians and the media can spin it any way they want to but when you have no job, no house to live in and no money left due to their embezzlement practices will you still believe the spin?
