Maybe I’m confused. President Obama, Hill-Dawg, and many other Socialist leaders in the Americas are calling for the restoration of former Honduras President Mel Zelaya to office. Now, I understand the other tyrants asking for this, but the President of the United States? He should be supporting, at the very least, the constitutional authority of the government of Honduras to remove a person from office who is clearly trying to violate the constitution.
Most of these voices against the coup are claiming they want an end to the old, violent past of the region and that this just sets them all back. However, we are missing some serious points here. First, Zelaya was not taken prisoner, tortured and killed. He was merely removed. There was no bloodshed. The only blood that could be spilled is if Dictator For Life Chavez instigates some violence Second, why has President Obama claimed that Zelaya’s removal was illegal? As a matter of fact, the only reason he was removed is because HE was doing something illegal. He was trying to pull a Chavez and all the other dictators of the area and extend his term in office. Shouldn’t we be all outraged over that? Don’t get me wrong, maybe this coup wasn’t the only way to go about it, but shouldn’t we be thankful for the lack of violence?
As a Wall Street Journal editorial put it, “The struggle against chavismo has never been about left-right politics. It is about defending the independence of institutions that keep presidents from becoming dictators. This crisis clearly delineates the problem. In failing to come to the aid of checks and balances, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Insulza expose their true colors.” I couldn’t agree more. There are those in our nation who would rather see government powers expanded, and are blinded by that ideal. They have no concerns about the people’s right to change their government when it is no longer working in the nation’s best interests. Obama and Hillary should read the Declaration of Independence. It goes against everything for which they stand.
