Ad­min­is­tra­tion lacks even ‘smidgen’ of in­tegrity

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - ED MUL­VANEY JR. An­nis­ton, Ala.

The Amer­i­can people have never given our govern­ment the right to op­er­ate carte blanche on be­half of the masses. The govern­ment must be ac­count­able to the people as an elected en­tity. To work off the phi­los­o­phy that the end jus­ti­fies the means is a recipe for dis­as­ter. Yet that is ex­actly what is oc­cur­ring.

With the In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice tar­get­ing con­ser­va­tive groups and de­cep­tion at the high­est lev­els with re­gard to Beng­hazi, we see a gov­ern­ing body with to­tal dis­re­gard for the law. The main­stream me­dia sim­ply over­look these events as right-wing con­spir­a­cies. Af­ter all, in their eyes, it’s the end — Pres­i­dent Obama’s lib­eral pro­grams — that far out­weigh the im­por­tance of the means he uses to achieve these goals.

To them, if tar­get­ing con­ser­va­tives is re­quired to en­sure the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a so­cial­ized health care sys­tem, that is an ac­cept­able means. If de­ceiv­ing the Amer­i­can people about the Beng­hazi ter­ror­ist at­tacks is what it takes to en­sure the pres­i­dent’s re-elec­tion, then that was a jus­ti­fi­able means.

The Amer­i­can people de­serve bet­ter. We de­serve the truth. Even a “smidgen” would be nice.
