An agency of the Federal Government devised a hair-brained scheme to sell automatic weapons to Mexican drug lords. As a result, hundreds of Mexicans and an American border patrolman were killed. And Attorney General Holder lied to Congress about it…no one was fired.

The State Department (under Hilary Clinton) denied a request from our ambassador to reinforce our embassy in Benghazi. And when the embassy was attacked, refused to send help. As a result, four Americans, including our ambassador were killed.

Hilary Clinton and everyone connected to the Obama Administration lied to the American public and said this was a spontaneous demonstration caused by a video…no one was fired.

The IRS abused its authority and persecuted tea party, conservative and religious groups by intimidating and bullying them with onerous amounts of paperwork and intrusive questions. And the law was clearly broken when their tax-related information was sent from the IRS to the Federal Elections Commission…no one was fired.

Until recently, the question was: what does it take to be fired by the Obama Administration? We now know. Just recently, a government employee was fired from his job for tweeting criticism of Obama’s advisor, Valery Jarrett and an Obamacare telephone operator was fired for telling the truth, that no one calling in about Obamacare liked it. She said she was not even allowed to clean out her locker and was escorted out of the building like a criminal.

What a legacy for Barrack Obama, who promised he would “change the tone in Washington” if elected as president. Not only did he not change the tone, he made it much, much worse by insulting, ridiculing and demeaning Republicans in almost every speech he makes.

He has also changed the tone in the country for the worse, by unleashing government agencies, from the EPA to the IRS, to harass everyday Americans, causing them to fear their government.

It is only after government fears the people, that things will change for the better. The founding fathers understood this and doubted that the people would be able to keep this republic. Casting your ballot during local, state, and national elections is the only weapon you have. May God help us all. Thank you.

Mr. Quagliaroli, Why don't you write of the even sadder legacy of your beloved Tea Party.
