Glenn Beck Gives The List of Obama’s Czars

This is less than half of the info contained in the Glenn Beck article that describes what each czar is authorized by the Presdident to do. I have been offended all along with government appointed people who create rules that stick to citizens as if they were law. I also will be supporting the advertisers who stick with free speech and I will continue to speak freely as long as I have the places and abilities to do so. I will continue to ask bold questions, holding fast to any truths that I discover and share what I see. I only see a part as do most if not all people. God will sort out what we cannot now see clearly. We are responsible to support the best men we can in a search for a responsible Representative Republic government, as given us in the US Constitution.
