“America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere." Ronald Reagan
Remember way back in the old days when any scandal would send a politician packing? Over the years the Democrats and their msm friends have been lowering the standards of integrity to a point where almost anything goes. Corruption is a dangerous slippery slope because entrusting corrupt people to protect our freedom is like entrusting a fox to guard the henhouse.
Our government currently has or have had serving in very high offices people who have stolen, perjured themselves, taken bribes, cheated on their taxes, been involved in sex scandals, taken illegal drugs, sold out their country, avoided the draft, behaved irresponsibly causing someone else’s death, etc. or you name it, they've done it.
There have been many corrupt politicians over the course of the history of our country, but if they were caught their political careers were ended. Now, if a Democrat is caught, the msm run cover for them minimizing the offense and the damage. They just stay in office like it never happened, unless the Democrats themselves have a reason to want them gone. Of course, the Republicans are still being held to the old standard. But everyone needs to be held to a higher standard.
This bold, in your face corruption is the way of the Socialist state. It is the hallmark of Socialism, an immoral way of life with a double standard for the people in power versus the masses. Things that others in our society would be jailed for doing, politicians are rewarded for doing. Politicians being above the very laws that they enact is no Democracy.
And we tolerate it. Is it any wonder that they feel empowered to get away with anything? Our tolerance tells them yes they can. Re-electing crooks, who then appoint their crooked friends to assist them is the surest way to corrupt government.
The Senate confirmation hearings have become a joke. Crooks and cheaters are being praised and put into positions where they do not belong. These are very powerful positions and the decisions they make will impact us all.
You don’t have to wonder why the politicians in D.C. are ignoring the wishes of the people because they no longer represent the people. They represent their own selfish agenda so what else would expect of a bunch of cheaters and crooks?
My disappointment is in the voters who do not take the time to educate themselves. There are too many people who know all the details about the goings on in Hollywood or in sports, but can’t name their Congressman or Senator or even answer simple questions about their government. The crooks and cheaters count on this inattentive ignorance and millions of voters gladly accommodate them.
Corrupt government is not going to give these people a wake-up call because they prefer that they sleep in and these people seem to enjoy sleeping. But as a result, we are all going to continue to get the most corrupt, power hungry government money can buy. If this continues unabated, for those of us with our eyes wide open there will only be a memory of a bright shining city on a hill whose beacon light at one time guided freedom-loving people everywhere … but whose light flickered then died and freedoms were lost because so many did not have the will to preserve them.
It is time to wake up and speak up, the light is flickering, do not let it die.
