We, the People; You, the Liar

Excuse me, Mr. President, but...
I was so shocked by your obvious lie—who would believe that a democratic president would lie to his people—that I almost missed another odd point in your speech. "We, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. Our brave men and women in uniform, tempered by the flames of battle, are unmatched in skill and courage," you said, and I was confused for a second. Two lies in one breath are a bit too much for my feeble mind. "Unmatched in...courage" you said. Please, Mr. President, explain to us lesser humans, how much courage is needed for attacking with a drone people armed with sticks and stones? For the sake of clarifying the second lie, let me remind the world that you are the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize 2009. Honorable Peacemaker, do you realize that your violent fiefdom has led more than 500 wars and battles in its short existence? You speak of peace while competing with Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Hitler and Stalin, for the first place in a list that I prefer not to name.
I apologize Mr. President, but your words tired me; instead of moving forward in your speech, let me return to its beginning. You quoted an old text, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." Yet, you lead one of the most unequal nations on earth. You lead a country with unprecedented gaps among its citizens. You lead a country where one's capability's to succeed is determined in great part by irrelevant parameters of ethnicity, color and gender. You speak of liberty with a capital "L;" yet, you lead an unprecedented surveillance state that dwarfs anything imagined by George Orwell and violates the most basic human rights without ever having been given the right to do that by the people. Let's stop this analysis; your speech was a lie from beginning to end.
Honorable Mr. President, "we, the people" of the world cannot defend ourselves from your weapons of mass destruction and from your indifference to the value of Life. Come and crucify us. Come and get richer at our expense. Come and torture us for the sake of your sadistic pleasures. However, at least allow us a last wish: don't lie to us.
