That Republic has been threatened before, but never so gravely and never for such selfish and self-serving reasons.
Our nation was attacked on our soil and the White House was burned during the War of 1812. President Madison had to flee. Our Republic could have been destroyed and we once again could have been a property of Great Britain. The United States of America survived. The White House was rebuilt and the Republic went on to flourish.
The Americans fought a civil war. The primary reason for the civil war was the institution of slavery. The United States suffered from a lack of military leadership and the Confederacy flourished because of military leadership. A great and self-less civilian leader arose to preserve the Republic known as the United States of America. In the end, slavery was abolished and the Republic survived. Since that time the wounds have healed but the scares remain.
Had the Republic not survived in the whole, North America would have as a minimum, four independent nations and possibly more as opposed to the three that now occupy the continent, thanks to Abraham Lincoln.
The Republic could have faced another constitutional crisis in November of 1960. The presidential election was very close between Kennedy and Nixon. Illinois was the determining state in that election. At the last minute, some uncounted votes were found. It was learned that these votes were votes of dead voters in Chicago who were “die hard” Democrats. It was hard to believe these votes were missed since these dead people had been voting for years, especially in close elections.
Nixon was urged to go to the Supreme Court for a ruling on the election. Nixon determined that it might be in his best interest, but would certainly bring about a constitutional crisis. Nixon chose the nation over self and determined he would concede the election to Kennedy and avert the crisis.
Nixon was later elected to the presidency. During his first administration, a break in of the Democrat Election headquarters occurred. This brought about another crisis to the existence of the Republic. It was clear a cover up had occurred, but things like breaking laws of maintaining national records, or national security, or Nixon or his family enriching themselves through “play for pay” schemes were not involved.
As it became clear that the cover up did happen, Republicans began to urge Nixon to resign to avoid a crisis and threaten the existence of the Republic. Eventually, Nixon again put the good of the Republic ahead of his person and suffered the humiliation of the only person to resign from the office of the President.
Again, the Republic is facing a crisis. There is no good solution. The people involved or at the heart of the crisis are not honorable people who place the good of the Republic above their own gains. The wounds to the Republic are life threatening. If the Republic does not die, it has been severally damaged forever.
Hillary Clinton made a very foolish and self-serving decision in 2009 to circumvent the law and rather than use the government email system she decided to use her own. She claimed it was for convenience, but we now know it was to hide her and Bill’s plans to use her office of Secretary of State to enrich themselves and their foundation by implementing their “pay for play” scheme. For obvious reasons, she and Bill could not have these emails as a part of the public record.
In her effort to conceal her and Bill’s criminal activities, Hillary exposed National Secrets of the United States to virtually any hacker in the world. Even though she vehemently denied any classified information was on her illegal server, the facts have proven otherwise. We now learn that National Secrets might also be on the private laptop of a sex pervert, Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Hillary’s closest aid.
In a week, the American public will go to the polls to vote for President of the United States. Some people have already voted. If they cast a vote for Hillary, they will be casting a vote for an individual who is under investigation for exposing classified information of the United States and using a “pay for play” scheme to enrich her family and her foundation by violating the public trust while she served as Secretary of State.
An honorable person, which Hillary clearly is not, would have forsaken “convenience” and used the proper channels for government emails. An honorable person would never have run for president understanding she had committed many illegal acts. An honorable person would now step aside, understanding that the FBI has found evidence grave enough to make a public announcement 11 days before a national election.
The Republic is in grave danger. If Hillary is elected, a constitutional crisis will take place if Obama pardons her; if she pardons herself; or if she is indicted and stands trial. If the DOJ does not indict this time, the public will have even less faith in the Justice Department and will understand that the “rule of law” no longer exists. We will be like a monarchy were the royalty is exempt from the law.
If Hillary is not elected, the Marxists/Progressives (her supporters) will say the election was totally unfair and the newly elected administration’s authenticity will be in doubt. There will be a call for the inauguration to be postponed, if in fact an election is held.
Never has the Republic been in such grave danger. It is in grave danger because of Hillary’s total disregard for the law. It is in such grave danger because Hillary and Bill put their own financial gains and desires above the good of the Republic. It is in such grave danger because the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are not honorable people and place their agenda ahead of the good of the Republic. It is in such grave danger because the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) despise the nation our founders established; a nation built on individualism, rule of law, limited government, divided government, and rule by the people.
Obama, Hillary, Lynch, Holder, Jarrett, and all the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) want the Constitution and the Republic abolished. This is imperative if the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are to bring about the totalitarian Marxist state they desire. They are very close to accomplishing their goal.
A REPUBLIC, IF YOU CAN KEEP IT. WILL WE KEEP IT??? NOT IF THE MARXIST/PROGRESSIVES (DEMOCRATS) HAVE THEIR WAY.
