Short Takes – America’s in a Mess


America’s in a Mess

The slow poisoning of America by Progressivism has made a complete mess out of our government. Especially messy is the vapid thinking of our politicians who behave more like money exchangers in the temple than statesmen. They have allowed, indeed encouraged, America’s enemies to attack our strengths, our religious and moral codes, our intellectual achievements and our responsibilities for teaching our young the strengths that come from a Constitution, one unlike any other constitution in history, the ultimate achievement of the Codes of Hammurabi, the Arbroath Declaration and the Magna Carta.

Politicians have brought America to a state of serious decline in our moral, religious, and intellectual values. American’s are in confusion, constantly being lied to by the Leftist media, who push fake news as real, demean and destroy anyone with a “conservative” thought, and constantly denigrate the values that made America great. Many Americans don’t know what our Constitution prohibits because they’re not taught it in school and many don’t bother to find out. We elevate some really stupid people from our pool of know nothings and foolishly ask them to represent us in Congress. The pity is, they also don’t know the Constitution and apparently don’t care. Soon, they quickly join in the looting themselves.

Because we have sent stupid people to Congress, people who do not know what to do, or not wanting to make serious Constitutional decisions, a bureaucracy of regulators was created, many of them poisoned by “Progressive” Marxism, all to circumvent the Constitution and set the rules by which we must daily live, like making wedding cakes for Gays, allowing choices of bathroom use by sicko’s and what one can or cannot do on their private property.

No one talks about the inconvenient “enumeration of powers” clause let alone enforce it, so we are now a confused bunch of citizenry, clearly aware something is seriously wrong but not really knowing how to deal with it. Enter Donald Trump, a non politician, who has shown us a pathway back. They’re trying to destroy him but, for now, they’re having a hard time doing it.

The US Constitution specifies who does what in the running of our government. It is the  Congress that makes law and it is the President who enforces them. As the President can’t do it all by himself, the rise of a bureaucratic state emerged. Still, the powers of making laws and enforcing them are distinctly specific as our forefathers anticipated, so that the Executive Branch and the Congress, could act as checks on the other. It ain’t working folks!

The attempt to unshackle politicians from the restraints of the US Constitution started long ago, a hundred years in fact. War in Europe was the burning issue of the day so Congress started  sharing law making, with no constitutional authority, to run the day to day affairs of government. Congress, eager to shed their responsibilities to govern, delegated the mechanism of rulemaking and enforcement to the creation of new agencies within the government that affects us to this very day, leaving us burdened with a ponderous “Code of Federal Regulations.”

Today we are saddled with a bureaucratic state of unelected pencil pushers, actuaries and lawyers who actually run our government. They are the administrative deep state, aka: The “Swamp,” political creatures who will fight to defend their turf and will go down fighting. Because we live in a time of Constitutional illiteracy we must constantly, as individuals, remind our elected officials, until they can be replaced, of the peril they have put America in. If they are Progressives, well, don’t bother, they won’t listen anyway, so they must be voted out.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (06Dec17)
