President Barack Obama surely is aware of the natural law that nature abhors a void. In fact, this natural law also is valid in politics. When a great nation stops acting in its normal historical role as the leader of the free world, another power will naturally assume this position. We are witnessing this in Crimea, so how long will it be before China moves on the disputed ownership of the islands Japan now claims?
When our president decided to lead from the rear, he signaled to the other nations that the United States no longer sees it as our natural role to provide leadership in the free world. He no longer sees the United States as the “shining city on the hill” (as if he ever did) and as quoted by President Ronald Reagan.
Has anyone in Washington considered problems down the road? Questions to be asked of our representatives include:
Does anyone in Washington understand that actions have consequences? Why are only a very few of the brave souls who represent us speaking up and speaking out? Lockstep liberals and RINO Republicans are at fault and should accept blame.
There are times we need to look to those rebels in Congress who are speaking and offering solutions to our many problems, so take the time to listen and consider, please.
