Posted on 07/12/2013 1:44:51 AM PDT by Kaslin
I grew up in a country where the rule of law was supreme. Or at least it seemed that way.
But somewhere along the line the varnish of polite society has been worn off so that the brass now shows through.
Thats why today nobody is really surprised that the DOJ has sent rapid response teams to Florida to organize African-Americans to protest against the government.
Thats why, as a man fights for his life in a court room in Florida, like George Zimmerman does, no one seems very surprised when the judge intercedes to try to throw the trial for the prosecution.
In the late 1980s, when Leona Helmsley bragged that rich people didnt pay taxes only little people did, prosecution quickly followed. She served time in jail for her braggadociosness. But today its almost as if Obama and his cronies rub our noses in it, and celebrate the fact that they get to decide who pays and who doesnt pay.
If I learned anything from my study of the Soviet Union in the 1980s and 1990s it is this: You can't exercise that type of power without using some bayonets. And as Boris Yeltsin observed "You can create a throne of bayonets, you just can't sit on it for long."
Make no mistake there are two classes in America: the powerful on their thrones and everyone else.
And everyone else pays for the privileges of the powerful throne sitters, while the powerful are only are required to leave a tip- and a very cheap tip at that.
We live in a country where its illegal for me to use my cell phone as I stand at Walmart pharmacy counter because of HIPPA laws, but the NSA can spy on the most intimate details of my personal life, my financial transactions and my telephone records without even notifying me.
These two divergent policies- HIPPA and SpyGate, both enacted for my own good- were purposefully created by most of the people who populate Washington, DC today. These kings on their thrones are so out of touch that they think the apathy and apparent powerlessness of the people to react effectively against the government as they date rape us is the same thing as assent.
The American people have more reason to be paranoid than ever in my lifetime.
And for those liberals out there who voted for Hope and Change and got more of the same, I would hope that even at this late stage you would change your mind and join the rest of us as we stand for liberty.
While there are many things that should be properly left to the government to do, we have long past that point here in America.
Government seems to do least of all what it should, and mostly what it shouldnt be doing. These backward policies dont emanate just on the Democrat side of the aisle, but also on the Republican side.
So lets just say that its a bipartisan problem.
Arming Al Qaeda is a bipartisan problem; free mortgages for everyone is a bipartisan problem; social Security that offers neither security nor social benefits is a bipartisan problem; immigration laws that are hopelessly broken is a bipartisan problem; 70,000 pages of IRS code thats a hopeless mess and a petri dish for corruption is a bipartisan problem; 10th amendment violations are a bipartisan problem; spying on citizens, while ignoring the terrorists, is a bipartisan problem; allowing our fiscal and monetary policies to be dictated by a narrow set of Wall Streeters is a bipartisan problem; tracking our children as a substitute for real education reform, which by the way, has failed in America, is a bipartisan problem.
At a time when more people globally are moving out of poverty and into the middle class, in many respects, America has been left behind.
To the extent that America has not benefited from the demographic reality of billions of people worldwide adopting the American mode of life, is the bipartisan problem that we all must face or suffer the consequences.
The financial markets that used to be the envy of the world have been reformed until they have been emasculated politicized and metastasized in another triumph of bipartisanship.
We have come to the point where the rule of law has absolutely no meaning anymore.
Laws are created so purposefully complex that the government can decide at any given time what is or what isnt the law depending on how they feel about it.
Thats not a republic; thats a dictatorship.
There is no attempt to varnish it either. The government does what it pleases and we comply.
I used to believe that economics trumped all other arguments. That was when I foolishly believed in the rule of law.
But now I know that the country faces only two choices: liberty or death.
“The American people have more reason to be paranoid than ever in my lifetime.”
Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you!
> The American people have more reason to be paranoid than ever in my lifetime.
Just because youre paranoid doesnt mean theyre not out to get you!
I see what you did there...: )
What changed the institutions and our relationship to them began a hundred years ago. "Progressives" sold their snake oil of egalitarian envy to a prosperous people. Democracy is good, right? Let's have more of it and elect senators. Don't worry, the new senators will still protect state interests and keep the national government within the bounds of enumerated powers. Sure.
Some people have lots and lots of money. Let's take it from them, . . . for the better good, the general welfare of the nation. No problem.
Our nation made some serious mistakes in the 1910s when they rejected our Framers philosophy and believed Wilsonian baloney.
I reject efforts to add new mistakes on top of old ones. A return toward timeless constitutional principles is necessary. That means repeal of the 16th and 17th amendments, the most un-American mistakes our country ever made.
The rule of law died long ago. The effect, the crumbling of society, has been slow; but it has accelerated at warp speed under Elmer Fudd. There are only two possible outcomes - liberty or death.
People cannot trust their government nor the criminals in Congress. The one question they will never answer is “what laws do we get to break?” as they reward criminals.
The question we must ask ourselves is “how do we take back our government?” and if we don’t answer it, the outcome will be death.
And for the NSA trolls, FU.
“Laws are created so purposefully complex that the government can decide at any given time what is or what isnt the law depending on how they feel about it.”
The only requirement for having a lawless country is for its leadership to not follow the laws.
I have never heard the one about not being able to use a cell phone in a pharmacy. After reading that, I googled info about it. I got on some pharmacy website/forum, and the pharmacists left no doubt about their view of cell phone use by customers at the pharmacy....they HATE IT!!! Many refuse to service customers who have a cell phone stuck to their ear. One pharmacist had an illegal cell phone jammer he was so sick of customers jabbering on their cell phones as he was trying to get info out of them. The pharmacists wish cell phone use at the pharmacy was illegal, but apparently it’s not.
The "Great Wave" of immigration followed by public education and mass newspaper distribution.
As a kid I must have watched a hundred old Western movies with the plot line of the crooked sheriff, crooked judge etc. Iused to wonder if there could possibly be that many crooks in government. My question has been answered in the positive by this administration.
Remember the Western plot where all the crooked thieves are holed up in their secret cabin somewhere counting their loot and they feel safe and then somebody gets real mad because somebody took a bigger portion of the loot?
Looks like maybe we just gotta wait for them to screw each other over and start fighting amongst themselves. Yep, they are in the Big Hut counting our loses. We are waiting for the Guy from Calvary to make His entrance.
