The Congress of the United States has utterly failed to do their duty to either force the Administration to obey the law and, at times, has assisted the Administration in the violation of the law and the Constitution.
The Supreme Court has failed to uphold the Constitution of the United States and has become no more than a partisan group of lawyers who seek to legislate from the bench. They have exceeded their powers in some areas and failed to exercise their powers in others.
Money now rules this land. We, the people, have acquiesced to this unlawful seizure of power by the so-called wealthy elites by not paying attention, by being content with our bread and circuses, and by not exercising our will at the ballot box. Elections are now decided behind the scenes by the Republican and Democratic National Committees who only put forth candidates pleasing to the unelected ruling elites who drive everything in this nation through the free spending of cash to buy influence and air time in the media.
The media are guilty of not reporting the truth and being focused more on ratings than reporting the news. Of course, this is what their corporate masters want, it brings in even more money to influence elections and drive "popular" trends.
We are all guilty of allowing this to happen.
Vote ALL of the incumbents out in November. If there are viable candidates who are neither Republican or Democrat, vote for them. Those with a (D) or an (R) after their names have failed this nation and no longer deserve our votes, our respect, nor our loyalty.
I will NOT be voting for Clinton or Trump this fall. Neither is qualified to be President of the United States. At least one of them should spend time behind bars in a Federal prison for "high crimes and misdemeanors" while holding public office in this country and violating the oath they swore to uphold, that is to support and defend the Constitution.
Mr. Johnson, Mr. Weld, while I may not agree with all of your platform, I think it's time we overturned the current, established political parties. They have failed and they have failed miserably time and time again. You will have my vote in November.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Humans, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That 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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of our Citizens; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present political parties is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.My modifications are in bold italics.
I've had enough of this political circus, I have had enough of secret meetings and deals done behind closed doors.
Are we a nation of laws or a nation ruled by money and power?
As for a Libertarian vote being a de facto vote for the Democratic candidate? So be it. I cannot in good conscience cast my vote for Trump. I am still convinced that he is a demagogue and will change nothing in Washington.
While I may be choosing the loosing side, I'm not convinced it's the wrong side.
What other choice is there?
I say, "Enough!"
|This works for me, better than the alternative and I'll still be able to look at myself in the mirror.|
Love the Governor's shoes and socks. Heh, I dress like that from time to time. (Source)
Author's Note - Yes, I'm infuriated by the FBI "Director's" decision. (Director is in quotes because I think he's been bought and paid for.) Slick Willie's "offer he can't refuse" must have been interesting. We are ruled by a criminal enterprise. Both parties are guilty as Hell! More on this to follow. Just not today, I'm already too angry for rational thought.
