Editorial: There’s a deadly virus infecting the body politic of America. It’s destroying American’s ability to think, and making many delusional, unable to separate truth from lies, fantasy from reality. As our quality of life vanishes before our very eyes, as our once peaceful country degenerates into a violent police state, as our freedoms and constitutional rights are stripped away by the strokes of government pens, Americans, like lemmings or the rats of Hamlin, troop blindly toward disaster, unable to see the fatal drop-off ahead.
If one were to only, as is the case with far too many people, get one’s news and information from the so-called mainstream media, one might think that professional sports and the lives of movies actors were of paramount importance, and that the only office of any consequence in the upcoming 2012 election is that of President. All we hear about is Obama-Soetoro and the handful of Republicans running against him. Mentions of the people running for the Senate or the House are so few as to be non-existent. However, the simple truth is that who is president means very little, if the House, and particularly the Senate, are controlled by veto proof majorities.
As things stand, the Senate is in the control of radical leftist Democrats, outright thieves, and their establishment Republican running dogs. The House is better, but still overrun with Marxists and turncoat Republicans who got elected by pretending to be conservative. In any case, both houses need to be taken back by We, the People, if we are to kill the deadly virus and save our country from a collapse into diseased darkness.
In the past few years, the Senate has passed bill after unconstitutional bill, many of them co-sponsored, or even written by establishment Republican running dogs. John McCain is a glaring example of such traitorous behavior. They have degenerated into a self-serving, self-enriching, corrupt, elitist oligarchy. And since 2010 when Democrats lost control of the House, the Senate has actively worked to thwart all efforts to end what amounts to criminal, and some might say, traitorous borrowing and spending, and to put us back on a track to restore constitutional government. As of this moment, some 28 well-crafted House-passed bills aimed at solving the budget crisis, a crisis intentionally brought on by the neo-fascist misleadership of the Democrat Party, languish in Senate committees, imprisoned by Fascist-in-Chief, Harry Reid, and abetted by go-along-to-get-along lap-dog Mitch McConnell.
We need to stop allowing the Ministry of Propaganda to distract our attention from the real source of our problems. Yes, Obama-Soetoro and his totalitarian gang of racists and thieves, aka, the Executive Branch/Administration, are dangerous. However, they can be neutered at any time, should the Congress choose to do so, by cutting off funding for their nefarious activities. Folks, a government shut-down could be the best thing to happen to America in years.
We need to focus on getting a Congress that actually represents the interests of We, the American People. We need to put into office men and women who understand that the Constitution, capitalism, and our Judeo-Christian values and traditions are what made it possible for America to become that Shining City on the Hill, that Beacon of Hope to the world. We need to elect genuine public servants, not self-proclaimed “leaders” whose loyalty can be bought by the highest bidder. We need men and women of honor, to whom a promise is a sacred thing, and an oath something never to be broken.
At a more mundane level, we need honest men and women who have, as it were, day jobs, i.e., people who are not looking to become “career” politicians. The shameful, corrupt abuse of their positions for self-gain, either by voting themselves outrageous benefits and privileges, or by taking totally unethical advantage of insider-knowledge, must not only end, but be completely rolled back. Congress was originally intended as a part-time body, as are many state legislatures, and a return to that concept would be a very healthy thing.
So, as we contemplate what today appears a grim New Year, let’s resolve to get off the couch, turn off the TV, and get involved in taking back America, if not for ourselves, then, as the Party of Lies is so fond of saying, for the children. I hate to think of all these sweet, innocent little ones having to grow up to be slaves for a privileged class, a ruling elite. If there’s to be class warfare, let it be We, the People, against the Ruling Class.
