A new report is out that says that the $400 million “ransom” money that was given to Iran wasn’t handed over until the hostages were secured.
The thing that amazes me is that they think that makes it okay. Really? What did they think we would say as the American people? “Oh…you waited till they were safe? Oh, that makes it okay then.” America does not negotiate with terrorists. That has always been our motto and it will continue to be so.
What makes it the worst of all is the fact that our government was spending tax payers dollars. Listen, I’m all for saving hostages, in fact, I think that we should protect the people who have gone off and fought or worked to protect our country. I truly believe that. Just don’t lie about it. We know what you are doing and we call you out on it. The last thing you should want is to have a country full of people that don’t trust you.
We the people of the United States of America are the “rulers” the “bosses” of the American government. What do employers do when they find out that one of their employees has been lying to them? What would your boss at work do if he/she found out that you were using their money to pay for things? You would be fired, right? Of course! That’s the natural order of the chain of command. Yet, our government thinks they can get away with hiding things from us?
I’m growing more and more appalled by the state of the American government. Is it a shock? Of course not. As soon as Barack Obama stepped in as President of the United States, we all knew we were in for some surprises.
Never forget, we are the rulers of our government. Our government is not the ruler of us.
