What goes around ...

We have all heard the sayings “What you sow, you will reap” and “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” These phrases underscore the law of reciprocity. What goes around comes around.

Faith in the law of reciprocity has prevented human conflict between individuals and nations, and it has constrained the self-destructive tendencies of many powerful people. Yet, some people refuse to accept this.

Never before have we had a president who is a sneak, a snoop and a schemer of government power to destroy his opposition. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party leadership runs interference in the lawful investigation of this national malfeasance.

President Obama and the Democrats are waging war against our rights to free speech, religion, assembly, gun ownership, home privacy, property and state sovereignty while they hope to fundamentally change the most successful form of government the world has ever seen.

It's hard to imagine that Obama and the Democrats really believe that they can outrun the consequences of their devious conduct. I dare say not.
