The Memo isn’t even the “end of the beginning.” The IG report may be, but not if the adults don’t change their behavior. It is but the first small beachhead in a war that must be fought and won for America, our rights, our liberties, our freedom… to survive. And if you have not learned from The Memo that this IS a war – you are not paying attention at all.
There is no guarantee we will be able to hold this beachhead. As we celebrate The Memo, the left is plotting its counterattack. They never rest, never sleep, never quit.
If the Rule of Law is not enforced, if Obama, Hillary, Lerner, Koskinen, Clapper, Lynch, Holder, Comey are not indicted and tried, the Rule of Law is gone, and we live under the Rule of Man, enforcing the law based the identity of the criminal. This is the core of “identity politics.” This is totalitarianism. This is the left.
“None of us is free until all of us are free.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
If we are not all subject to the same laws, freedom and liberty cannot exist, but only totalitarianism in which our birthright as Americans, our life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, are determined at the whim of another rather than under law.
If these people are free, we are not. It is axiomatic.
As we adventure around the world “to make the world safe for democracy,” to enforce the borders of other nations and lecture on the Rule of Law, we overthrow all of that here at home: No law. No borders. No democracy… No Republic.
An Article 5 Convention won’t change this. It only will establish a different set of rules that won’t be enforced by Democrats because they reject the Rule of Law, and by Republicans as they are too nice to offend, think this is a church social rather than a war to the death over Western Civilization, and don’t want to “be judgmental,” the single most ignorant trope ever used by a sentient being.
We have the laws we need now; we refuse to enforce them. We have in our Constitution the most perfect governing document in history. We refuse to enforce it.
Would we have an immigration problem had we enforced our own laws? No.
Would we have just experienced eight years of a completely lawless President had we enforced the Separation of Powers that defines our government? No.
Would we allow ourselves to be ruled by the federal courts if we enforced the Constitution, its Enumerated Powers, and the Bill of Rights? No.
If the people we elect now won’t enforce the law and Constitution – which is blatantly obvious on both sides of the aisle – a new Constitution won’t change that.
To think the mid-terms will reflect anything learned about the political establishment, the Deep State, the uber-corruption of our government by those we trust to govern us reflects the old saying about a second marriage: one puts hope over experience. The same franchise will elect the same criminals to excuse their lawbreaking and various immunities in the same way. Because you see, it’s not MY Congressman who is the problem, it’s YOUR Congressman.
It is Declaration of Independence time again: “… that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.” And if The Memo and the upcoming IG report don’t prove the destructive nature of our government toward those ends, I don’t know what will.
Independence must not be just from the Deep State, but of the States from one another, singly or in groups. We are too big to save.
America was designed to have a Representative for no more than 30,000 people; we are over 700,000 now – too big for any serious person to think that any but the rich are paid attention by Congress. More to the point, this un-accountable Congress has, by creating the Regulatory State to avoid accountability, rejected their first responsibility, and the very first line of Article One of the Constitution, that “all legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress…” For what but a law is a regulation through which one can be deprived of liberty or property?
We, truly, are lawless today, hoping only to be treated well by masters we both elect and to whom we express obeisance, of whom we excuse criminal actions and gross violations of the law and our Constitution, sacrificing our lives and our liberty, our freedom, our property and the fruits of our labor – ours and that of our children and grandchildren.
No rationale exists for those who believe in the future enough to populate it to continue to fund and have their progeny (forever) fund trillions of dollars of debt used only to buy votes for Democrats – who hate America – and to continue to have the Progressive Leviathan deprive us of our liberty, safety and property.
If the left wants to live in Venezuela on the Pacific or North Atlantic or Great Lakes – the adults don’t need to subsidize them, feed them, house them or provide them energy, or allow our children to be mal-educated by them. Let them go their way. Let us go ours.
Or there will be no liberty, no freedom, no happiness. Only totalitarianism exists in that direction.
This isn’t over.
It’s barely begun.
