"The last hope of human liberty in this world rests on us" ~ Thomas Jefferson ~
I’ve stated my
position on this before but I’m convinced the case against incumbents
couldn’t be more compelling than it is today.
We’re seeing indisputable evidence that Lord Acton rang steel when
writing, “power corrupts and absolute
power corrupts absolutely.” It’s
time to clean house. “But
Colonel, no politician or political body in
From the wild spending and unchecked growth of government under the GOP, to the rubber stamping an inconceivable level of deficit spending through appropriation bills they’ve never read, to the dictatorial interjection of government into all facets of the private sector, to the appointment and confirmation of tax cheats to cabinet posts, to the fear of seriously questioning the existence of a qualifying birth certificate, to fast-tracking cap and trade legislation that has 1600 pages of hidden elements in it designed to extend government control and taxing power over everyone, to bringing the efficiency and control of government into our health care system that will severely impact everyone, to taking costly “fact finding” trips to exotic places on your dollar, to pushing amnesty for illegals and using your tax money to provide them with social benefits, to eyeing tax increases and the destruction of capitalism at every opportunity, as of this writing, I’ve seen no effective opposition that has had any real deterrent effect. Statists are in control with few roadblocks to stop or slow their progress.
irresponsible bailouts, billions of which remain unaccounted for with hundreds
of millions devoted to insanely inexplicable earmarks, and iron-fisted
legislation rushed through before the details can become public, none of which
is authorized in our Constitution yet they keep coming with increased speed,
frequency and danger. And what
about the millions that are directed to groups manned by relatives of those in
They all swore a solemn oath of office, but who among them are living up to that oath by doing something meaningful about all this insanity? Perhaps a semi-good one here and there but I wouldn’t swear to that. I think most of what we see in this regard is a placating made-for-TV event, that’s immediately forgotten after the camera lights go off.
We’ve all heard
rants from so-called conservative politicians that the path we’re on will
destroy the country and
Why aren't Republicans and Blue-Dog Democrats vigorously fighting every instance of this grab for power and control, or filing legal action to stop it—something, anything other than passive Nay votes and bluster on talk shows?
“But Colonel, my guy is solid, not like those others!” Check their actions, not their words, under both Republican and Democrat administrations before giving them your vote of confidence. Even if they are one of the semi-good ones, the job is not a life time appointment and even the good ones often become far too enamored with political power after serving multiple terms. So let’s thank them kindly for their service and remove that corrupting temptation altogether.
Now to my mind, one
of two things is the likely case here; Our members of the Legislative and
Judicial branches are either cohorts in and fully supportive of the
administration’s takeover of
Whichever is the
case, cohorts in destruction, gutless lemmings or stupid fools, we simply
can’t afford such disgraceful representation in
Remember, our representative republic depends on an effective system of checks and balances designed to prevent power mongers from running roughshod over the country. When that system breaks down, government becomes destructive to its ends and as our Founders declared, “…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…” How do we exercise that right? Cleaning out the incumbents will abolish the currently corrupt, the spineless and the stupid, institute new government and send a clear warning to those elected: Sic Semper Tyrannis.
