Letter: The difference between a politician and an ideologue

Do you know the difference between a politician and an ideologue? The politician somewhat cares about representing what you think and want while the ideologue only cares about what he thinks.

That’s why Obama is the textbook narcissistic ideologue. Too bad the majority of real politicians in America don’t stand up and be heard. In recent weeks only one had the guts and fortitude to speak up for his constituents: Ted Cruz the senator from Texas … and he was vilified for speaking against Obamacare (aka Affordable Care Act). But we all know now, he was right on.

So now we have a far-left ideologue president with little credibility who thinks everything he does is best for you and me. Like the Mexican gun running scheme; like the State Department lying about Benghazi; like arming the Muslim Brotherhood; like the military not getting their votes counted; like voter fraud in Ohio where 100 percent of some counties voted for Obama; like the NSA monitoring our personal correspondence; like the IRS targeting conservatives; like the DOJ spying on the press; like Health Secretary Sebelius shaking down the health care industry; like giving Solyndra $500 million dollars and then it goes bankrupt; like Obama threatening to impose gun control bypassing Congress; like the failure to submit a budget as required by constitutional law; like releasing 10,000 illegal immigrants from incarceration and blaming it on the sequester; like all the lies told to Congress by Hillary Clinton, IRS personnel, James Clapper and Eric Holder; like all the outright lies told to us, the American public, by President Obama in regard to selling “his” health care law that not one republican voted for.

That’s not all … now our government wants to put black boxes in our vehicles so they can track us wherever we travel and tax us for it. And last but certainly not least, there are now many low information (stupid) American voters who were made dependent on the government by the Obama administration (51-plus million), who don’t pay taxes and get all kinds of free stuff, who screwed the rest of us by electing the most corrupt administration in U.S. history. It’s unbelievable how many people will not only sell their souls for a buck but their kids’ and grandkids’ souls also.
