Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely. Yeah, it is an old adage; that doesn’t make it any less true. Webster defines corruption as: a : impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle :depravity b : decay, decomposition c : inducement to wrong by improper or unlawful means (as bribery) d : a departure from the original or from what is pure or correct.
All of these seem to fit our present day politicians. Is it possible that ‘C’ might be the case when it comes to winning elections? Is it really possible that Harry Reid wins his elections “properly and lawfully” when he has go into the polling booth behind by several points including the exit poles in each of his elections except his first one without several questionable votes being cast? The walking dead maybe? There are several examples of this, including Barack Obama himself.
It would seem to me that the act of enforcing your will on an unsuspecting public at the expense of the constitution and the moral principles of that self same electorate simply because you can is a pretty good definition of corruption.
Let us look at some of the nonsensical laws they propose.
The so called Amnesty Bill: There have been two separate polls conducted among Latinos by two diverse pollsters in two different states and in each case they said no to the amnesty bill. THEY DON”T WANT IT PASSED!
Gun Control: The second amendment, as we all know by now says, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Now they want to tell us that allowing people to own guns IF they pass a background check is not an infringement. I sure wish I could get a hold of their dictionary. It must have some really good flexible definitions. The senator from my own state is hawking this bill. Joe Manchin. He absolutely refuses to represent his own electorate in the hope of gaining enough powerful friends to have the dead rise up and vote for him too! If he doesn’t he will be retired and he knows it. It’s not the paycheck folks. He now gets that for life.
The DHS: This little infringement on our security and freedom now targets more Americans than foreigners. It defines its own limitations to the extent of defining what part of the constitution applies to their department. For instance: The first and fourth amendments do not apply within one hundred miles of any US border, be it land or sea border. It also defines what laws it will enforce and which it will not. Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of the DHS testified before congress that because of the large scope of that departments responsibilities it had to be able to pick and choose which laws to “concentrate on” and it would do so. By the way, the DOH is now the second largest police force on the planet. The largest? The NSA. It’s true and you can look it up.
The DOJ: Eric Holder was confirmed to office by the Senate on February 2, 2009 and has since then been on a rampage attempting to negate the constitution as well as the moral fiber of our country. He found it necessary to openly state that the right to own guns is NOT guaranteed by the constitution. He found it necessary to aver that the right of the people to use the word ‘God’ is illegal and withdrew funds from a law enforcement agency that hold meetings for a U.S. Marine group that invokes God in their meeting saying to them – “Remove the word God from your meetings and the money will be restored”. One of his U.S. Attorneys, in Kentucky, stated blatantly that speaking against Muslims is a prosecutable violation of the law. He gave a ‘legal’ opinion that the use of drones to spy on the American public is legal. He has been cited for contempt of Congress. Unfortunately to press those charges, which carry a jail term, would mean that he would be prosecuting himself. Somehow I don’t think that will happen. He has removed the right of several states to have all voters vetted as Citizens of the U.S. Yeah, that was a goody! You don’t need to be a citizen to vote.
Should I go on? I think you get the idea. Corruption is rampant in our Government and I believe it is obvious to everyone that follows any reliable news service. What can we do about it? It is my opinion that the first step is to insist upon Voter IDs for ALL voters. State issued voter IDs showing the citizenship status of every voter. I will post another blog regarding other remedies in the near future. This one is long enough.
