The 2012 presidential election is now in the last stretch, two weeks before November 6th. We keep hearing reference to an October surprise, as though there is some impending disaster lurking around the corner to shock and surprise us.

So much is being exposed about those now occupying the seat of power in political government, it’s a very ugly picture. So much lying, conniving, thievery and killings going on, as those in power try to hang on, hang in and hang out, to retain and sustain their position of awesome power, not only here in this country, but throughout the rest of the world. As the exposé of so much wrong-doing dominates the news lately, an air of desperation is all around, with an air of anticipation, an expectation, wondering what’s going to happen next.

The massacre of four American State Department employees in Libya, has set off the firestorm of exposure, of that which has been going on a very long time. I for one am quite surprised to hear there are 60 thousand State Department employees, scattered around the globe. What do they do?

I’m reminded of the four years I lived in a foreign country, as the wife of an Air Force officer, and the many problems encountered as a result of earthquakes, typhoons, floods, accidents, robberies, and etc. I recall more than once contacting the American Embassy for assistance with problems dealing with a foreign government, and never once ever received any meaningful help.

The role of this political government we live under here in the United States is to protect the citizenry from foreign and domestic enemies. It is obvious there’s a failure in this role. What is the role of 60 thousand State Department employees? A staggering number, living off taxpayer money, and doing what?

Tonight is the last presidential debate, with a foreign policy theme. More than once I have heard Governor Romney say he likes firing people. I suggest a good place to start is the State Department.

Most of the news centers around the terrorist attack of American Embassy in Libya, killing four men, and the failure of back-up protection requested, which never materialized. All American citizens should have the same protection from foreign and domestic enemies. If it’s not the role of the State Department to carry out this policy, what is it?

We are currently living in an era when the United States is very unpopular and hated around the world in other countries. Any presence of American citizens in other countries is met with hatred and resentment. Obviously there’s a growing notion that others around the world want to destroy Americans, and all the decent things America stands for. And this feeling is so strong and pervasive, many trained to die in order to accomplish a mission of destroying Americans.

What are 60 thousand State Department employees doing to curtail this onslaught? What is their job supposed to do? Most of the current news centers around the failure and absence of the protection of the State Department employees. What is their job living in foreign countries, if it’s not for the protection of this country and American citizens?

So here we are, in the middle of a big controversy over who is supposed to protect whom. I remind the reader, protection always works, at the point it does not it’s no longer protection.

We’re in the middle of a big blame game, centered around the failure of the powers-that-be in Washington, to protect their employees dispersed throughout this country and around the world, drawing large salaries, supposedly to protect from foreign and domestic enemies, but obviously can’t protect themselves.

Something is very wrong with this picture as presented in the news. The out-picturing of a political government, straying so far left, away from the Principles upon which it was founded, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, and US Constitution, hardly recognizable.

Tonight is the last of the four debates, and in a couple of weeks, we will know whether or not Governor Romney will be elected President or President Obama re-elected. Despite the fact that polls report Romney pulling ahead, it is still a very close race. And anything can happen between now and November 6th, and probably will.

It was the Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, who said: “Comrades! We must abolish the cult of the individual, decisively, once and for all.”

LET FREEDOM RING
