Americans should be very concerned about the potential for an Ebola epidemic, especially in light of the Obama Administration’s inaction to protect the American people! It is absolutely unconscionable that arguably the most powerful leader in the world has done absolutely nothing to protect the American people from further infiltration of the Ebola virus into the United States from abroad. Americans should be outraged that his stance has continued to be one of worldwide social justice instead of honoring his presidential oath (see My ‘Larger Role’ Is ‘My Obligation to Make Sure Africans Are Safe’).
While the Government’s Ebola Response is Slammed, according to this article the President claimed that, “It was his job to make sure Americans were taken care of, he said he had a larger role.” What could be larger than doing his job to secure the borders and obey his oath of office? According to Obama, it’s “… Making sure that Africans, particularly children and their families, are safe.”
Apparently, the President wants us to believe his intentions are noble when, in fact, they are political. Common sense would dictate that the best course of action would be to isolate the Ebola virus in West Africa by eliminating all flights from infected areas and sealing the nation’s borders while providing the people in the infected areas state of the art medical assistance and support. However, this would not accomplish the Administration’s political agenda of retaining the U.S. Senate in the 2014 Elections by pandering to big labor’s gasping dinosaurs and minorities that the Democratic Party deems necessary to win the election. The Administration’s perspective is that this is a case of Ebola vs. civil liberties, and civil liberties and politics must always prevail even at the cost of potential catastrophic human suffering and death in America, not to mention the astronomical cost to a country already in danger of financial collapse due to 18 trillion dollars of debt! It is apparent from his statements and actions – including several fundraising trips – that the President is acting solely for political purposes (see America Needs an Effective Leader, Not a Politician).
All of us empathize with the plight of the people in West Africa and around the world who have been infected with Ebola, and the thousands who have died due to the disease. This is not a question of concern or providing aid for these people, but an effective strategy for isolating and eradicating the disease so it does not become pandemic and kill thousands of people in America and around the world. Unfortunately, this Administration and its supporters, despite sympathy for these people, also have other agendas that trump these concerns.
Obviously, from a political perspective the Administration views closing the borders as unacceptable as it may alienate its Hispanic voting base. Similarly, it is unacceptable to eliminate all immigration/flights into the country from West Africa as it may alienate the black vote. Never mind the hypocrisy that not taking these common sense steps to …read more
