It never seems to end. Government is on the warpath to enforce the 11th Commandment (“Thou Shalt Conform”) by opposing any resistance to the will of various bureaucrats up to and including our elected leader residing at 1800 Pennsylvania Avenue.
So what happened to our country and who’s to blame? I’ve addressed this before, and the answer is still the same.
We have…not the Constitution, nor our politicians…we have.
Government has gotten too big to control. Our politicians are out of control. Various groups cite and demand “rights” which are not rights but privileges over their fellow citizens. Taxes are no more than legalized theft to pay off the politically connected while supporting the poor by keeping the EFT cards filled. The rule of law is now no more than a suggestion to the powerful, and a weapon to keep the masses in check. And last, elections are a popularity contest rather than a job interview to put the most qualified people in charge.
We, The People, have let it happen, and continue to let it happen.
“If we don’t mobilize to remove politicians who are actively or passively eliminating our form of government, the republic our founders gave us is lost.” – Ben Weingarten, The Founders Didn’t Fail—We Are Failing The Founders
I’m watching the political theater in Washington, and the plotline reads like a Shakespearian tragedy – In the end, both protagonists, antagonists, and bystanders are all beat-up, bloody, or dead. It matters not who they are, disaster is immanent.
The Senate’s letter to Iran (political stupidity more than being constructive), the Hildebeast’s private email server (a violation of both law and public trust), Congress’s cave-in on the President’s amnesty funding plan (traitorous and illegal no matter how you look at it), heightening of racial tension (anything is supposedly motivated by racial hatred, including law enforcement and defending oneself), NSA violations of privacy (metadata datamining and storage without a warrant), “hate speech” double standards (Blacks can say the “N” word, but Whites cannot), bans on ammunition (violates all common sense and the 2nd Amendment), corruption and malfeasance beyond imagination (think Solyndra for starters), mind-numbing and contradictory regulations (just ask a business owner) – All is theater, bad theater at that, that affects each and every one of us in some way.
“What you want is irrelevant, what you have chosen is at hand.” – Spock, “Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country”
Indeed, what have we chosen? Perhaps this…
“The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away forever.” – Grand Moff Tarkin to Princess Leia, Star Wars IV
Indeed, with our Constitutional scholar President constantly violating the Constitution and the laws of the United States, is it too far of a stretch that this President will deconstruct the Constitution and Congress along with it? And would anybody take notice or protest? Apparently, one person wouldn’t care:
“It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass.” – Gwyneth Paltrow
Yes, indeed…let’s elect a King, an Emperor, a Dictator. Look at the various countries in South America and across the world, and see how that has worked out for the people in those countries…
As it is, Our Republic is in trouble. We need to remove the politicians that are the problem, and put in there place people (not politicians!) that will put this country back on the path of prosperity and greatness. You see, we really don’t have a choice, not if we wish to remain a free people.
