Our Freedom and Liberties are in dire straits largely because of Politicians and their Petty Politics. I realize that with our wonderful system of government we will never be devoid of Politicians and as long as we have Politicians we will have Petty Politics, so what do we do? There is a simple solution, but it is so simple, it is impossibly complex and would require a unification of ALL AMERICANS, therefore, it will never happen. With that said, I could stop here and say – THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO, but THERE IS! I know that I’ve sounded contradictory but if you will stay with me I’ll try to make sense out of the senselessness and explain what I mean, “We Cannot Afford Politicians.”
Because of the Career Elitist Politicians in Washington, D.C. in both parties we have a COST PROBLEM that is so astronomical it has created a debt we will never pay and a doom that is unavoidable. How’s that for ‘gloom and doom?” But, I truly do not see ‘gloom and doom’ but a ‘ray of hope’ for America IF and I do mean IF we will WAKE UP. I want to address some issues that are so staggering the reasonable response is FEAR. Our Founding Fathers and the Framers gave us ample warning against allowing Politicians to make Politics a Career, but we failed to heed their warnings. They warned us about people with no scruples and of lacking moral character, but we failed to heed their warnings. They warned us about allowing Politicians to load us with insurmountable debt, but we failed to heed their warnings. President Eisenhower warned us, “every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.” Benjamin Franklin warned, “man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.” Thomas Jefferson lamented, “History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.” The warnings were ample, but we have failed to heed their warnings.
How did we fail? We have allowed politicians to make a career out of politics and repeatedly return to Washington, DC and establish a network of cronyism that makes them rich and powerful and strips us of many of our liberties and freedoms. We have allowed them to confiscate our money for purposes the Constitution made no provision. We have allowed politicians to bribe the public with entitlements in order to buy votes. I do not care if the politician is a Democrat or a Republican if they violate the Constitution they are no longer deserving of serving in Congress. We have watched the Legislators sleep while Rome burned in the sense that various bureaucracies and governmental agencies to violate our rights and become partisan to the point of damaging our entire System of Government and our National Security and National Sovereignty. THAT MUST END!
Recently, I saw documents from the Department of Health and Human Services that revealed that “Unaccompanied Alien Children” were processed into this country during the Obama administration. Those ‘children’ included ‘violent criminals, drug smugglers, and human traffickers.’ Children? Maybe chronologically but not emotionally or morally. There were those who admitted to murder and being members of the MS-13 Gang. Some of the children were raped and/or molested en route to the United States. There were numerous reports of those children being “forced to kill” for Cartels and Human Traffickers. Politicians have created an environment in which America Citizens are in danger physically from these “children.” Because of the policies of the Obama administration and the ineptitude and inaction of Congress we do not know where most of those ‘children’ are today or what crimes are being committed. THIS MUST END!
The fiscal cost of ILLEGAL Immigration is far beyond what anyone seems to realize or want to admit. It is reported that between 51 and 76% of low-skilled immigrants are collecting some sort of welfare. America, we cannot afford Politicians playing Politics with our economy or our national security. The dangers posed both economically and physically are far too great to allow this to continue. The Democrats have removed the ‘work requirements’ and ‘asset tests’ creating a climate where a person can receive welfare or some other form of ‘entitlement’ without having to make even a minuscule attempt to get out of their poverty. NO, they can sit on their duffs and draw a check from those of who work and pay taxes. THIS MUST END!
Recently, the followers of Toxic Liberalism on the Left removed all pretense of their intent to end Free Speech or Free Speech for anyone not agreeing with them. They want to eliminate I.C.E., erase our borders, institute socialism, strip us of our right to ‘keep and bear arms’, and now their aim is squarely on our 1st Amendment Rights. The New York Times contended that “Conservatives have weaponized the First Amendment.” We have witnessed the perceived need for “Safe Spaces” for the Snowflakes of our Society, especially on College Campuses. The argument is those fragile souls will be so traumatized by any views not agreeing with theirs. Today, virtually everything is deemed ‘hate speech’ if it is not liberal and in harmony with the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressive agenda. Everything is labeled as some Phobic Mindset, Bigotry, Racist, Misogynists, or some other hateful characterization. We are barred from mediums such as Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter or put in the P.C. Jail for a time. THIS MUST END!
Religious Freedom is becoming endangered worldwide and America has been somewhat free of Religious Persecution for most of her history, that is changing. The Democrats or those adhering to the Toxic Liberal view have virtually declared war on Religious Freedom especially if that is Christianity or even Judaism. The number of nations worldwide that have placed significant limitations on religious freedom has risen to 83 which amounts to about 42% of countries. The precursors of Religious Persecution are being seen in the rulings of States and Courts that American citizens who operate private businesses must accommodate views that violate their core religious convictions. That is, if those views are biblical, if not then there is amazing exceptions made and those following traditional biblical views are ordered to comply or be put out of business, jailed, or fined excessively. THAT MUST END!
The trampling of our Constitution by Politicians is an ever-present threat to our American System of Government and the longer we elect and re-elect politicians who refuse to fulfill their oath of office to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution we will have this problem. No, the problem will continue to expand and enlarge. If we continue on the path we have trod for the past 40-50 years we are signing the Death Warrant and writing the Obituary of the Republic. THAT MUST END!
You may agree with little I have said, but I have only scratched the surface of THE WHY we cannot afford Politicians or Politicians who are intent on playing Politics with our Liberties and Freedoms. What can we do? WE CAN VOTE! In this election, it is imperative that we defeat the Democrats and then in every successive election we must seek to replace the politicians who are not true Constitutionalist with those who are both Citizen Representatives and true Constitutionalist. IT IS UP TO US and we cannot depend on the Politicians to Police themselves, that is our job. We are the owners of our government and we need to begin to act like it. POLITICS is not a spectator sport it requires the hands-on involvement of every citizen. ARE YOU WILLING?
God bless you and God bless America!
