Do we need a dictator?

Our country has gone so far left that recovery back to even the middle is doubtful. One man and his agenda is on course to give everyone a “fair” shot through financial redistribution; give everyone health insurance through Obamacare; destroy the coal industry; give the Environmental Protection Agency the power to do as it wishes; downsize our military to be ineffective; bring race back into politics; take God out of the classrooms and any other public events and hand out entitlement benefits to anyone who has a pulse – I could go on and on. But it has brought our country to its knees.

Congressional Democrats and Republicans are so divided that they are useless. Obama is unwilling to compromise on anything; it is his way or the highway. Our government will not tell the truth on the Benghazi, National Security Agency, Internal Revenue Service and the Fast and Furious scandals.

The United States is not respected as a power as it once was, we are no longer respected at all, and we are not feared. There have been so many lies and half-truths, how can we believe anything that comes out of Washington?

The United States is so far from its original values/grassroots that I think it will take a dictator who will work for the good of the country and not a political party to get the country back on the right path to recovery. (I do not want to go to a dictatorship, don’t get me wrong.) Of course the dictator would surround himself/herself with sound conservatives and a few liberals for advice and would have to fire all of Congress and the Supreme Court to get anything going.

This dictator would have to control spending; support the military; do away with unions and the IRS; put attention on education, less the teacher’s union; control the EPA; allow the Keystone pipeline to be built; push for the United States to become energy-independent; encourage free enterprise; and lock Al Gore up.

There are so many things that need attention. There would be no special agendas other than the welfare of the country. This person would have to be trusted to tell the truth no matter how bad it hurts, and would need to inspire economic growth. A conservative dictator would be the answer until we get back on track – then we would go back to general elections.

I am an independent conservative, and desperate times call for desperate measures.
