John Ransom

These are the enablers, these are the ones with sufficient knowledge but often with insufficient moral fiber, to stand up and say what really happened under Lois Lerner at the IRS.

These are the ones at Health and Human Services who know exactly what happened with the $300 million dollars spent on the Obamacare website that still doesn’t work.

These are the ones who know what the green energy loan program was all about.

And we should be talking to these people.

Citizens should be targeting these people, asking them to stand up and do their real job, which is to serve and protect the citizens who pay their salaries.

There are snivelers and tyrants amongst the bureaucrats who enjoy the fresh air and bright sunshine that anonymity gives them. We should make it rain on them, hard.

There are patriots amongst the bureaucrats too, and they must know from us that we will protect them, encourage them and reward them.

We have to make it make it clear to the bureaucrats that there are only two sides in the war the federal government is waging upon the rest of us.

There is the right and there is the wrong.

And it’s no longer sufficient to say you’re just following orders.

Orders from whom? I want to know; from whom?
