The phrase in vogue in Washington DC since the breaking news of the scandals is, “We must find out what happened so we can make sure it never happens again.” This means we must pass more laws so we will look like we really care about the health of our Republic. If we pass more laws, we can convince enough uniformed and or uneducated voters, illegal or legal, that we should be re-elected so we can continue to enrich ourselves and live our self-aggrandizing live style.
We in power will tell the American public we sat in the pew of a man we called counselor for twenty years, but were unaware he preached about how evil America is and deserved to be attacked on 9/11. Perhaps this is why you continue to apologize for what you perceive as the evil of America when out of the country and then lie that you said it. You associated with a documented terrorist who stated his only regret was his bombs did not do more damage to America and then you lied about your relationship with him. You lied to the American public about health care legislation and stimulus. You rewarded your donors through the stimulus and lied you knew anything about it. Your regime is one big lie.
This has passed to other members of the regime and Marxist/Progressives. The press secretary stands in front of the press and blatantly lies. When he is caught, he will lie to cover the lies. Your Secretary of State says what difference does it make four Americans were killed because somebody refused to approve the security they requested. Then, with you, did not even try to give these Americans any help when they were under attack. To minimize the political damage, you lied about the cause. Your Attorney General has again misled (lied) to congress about yet another scandal. This one violates the first amendment. Your Treasury department, including the IRS, is now lying about their lies. Senators, representing the Marxist/Progressives, run and hide and will not answer questions about their written words.
Now we are supposed to believe the way to correct these injustices is to pass more laws. This has been the preferred remedy in DC for many years. It is a way the self-righteous can continue their deceitful game. Laws are not the answer. No law is affective if there is no virtue. Cicero warned the Romans of this same deficiency when he said, “No external or foreign threat can infiltrate our Republic. If you wish Rome to live forever and our empire to be without end, if you wish that our glory never fade, we must be on guard against our own passions, against men of violence, against the enemy within.” Cicero was later murdered by the purveyors of totalitarianism.
An article in the Virginia Declaration of Rights in 1776 said free government, or the blessings of liberty, can only be preserved to any people by firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue. Washington DC has lost any adherence to all of these. New laws will not correct or prevent scandals or save our Republic. We will only be saved by We the People adhering to and demanding a firm adherence to these principles by our representatives. We must forgo political correctness, insist on self-responsibility by recognizing actions have consequences, insist on veracity and require transparency. Without this change, which will require courage and sacrifice, we will become the totalitarian state the Marxist/Progressives intend.
