One is never too old to learn, I suppose.
There are only two gate-keepers that should protect the people against tyranny: the ballot box and the courts. If the one fails, one should be able to rely on the other to apply the remedies that will return the country to health.
It is already evident that forces, who claim to be patriots but act like Trojan-Horse militia, are doing their level best to invalidate the ballot box. We constantly hear of Democrats who oppose proper identification of voters at the voting booths degrading the integrity of the outcome; recent public utterings of senior Democrat officials suggesting the suspension of elections; and the criminal position of the Speaker of the House of the previous Congress that delegates should vote for the Obama Health Care Bill to find out what's in it.
It is not a stretch of the imagination to expect this kind of behavior from people who have demonstrated empirically that they want to break down the very principles that brought this country to world leader status and being the most benevolent country towards its citizens and others in the world.
What was unexpected, to me at least, is that the U.S. Supreme Court, reportedly, allows their opinions to be influenced by public opinion and election results.
Do we even comprehend the magnitude of the cracks in our defenses against tyranny if this is indeed the case? The ballot box is already under mortal assault.
The two instances that have fiduciary custody of the public's trust, elected officials and the media, have already demonstrated that they are wholly incapable of executing their offices with even the remotest reference to integrity. It is rather a wild orgy of political incest, embezzlement, and moral destruction, all to serve the one god they all worship with daily devotion and sacrifice.
The one body perceived to be that bastion of defense against tyranny is the Supreme Court. Although that august body is millennia removed from the ordinary citizen who bears the moral, financial, and loss-of-liberty brunt of the obscene, public ingratiation of politicians, it is almost impossible for the people to contemplate defiance of the Supreme Court's rulings. It spoke, it must be obeyed, is rather the order of the day.
Now, however, we learn that the Supreme Court allows public opinion to influence its rulings. If that doesn’t stun any rational citizen, nothing will. Public opinion is crafted by the very people who architect the destruction of the Constitution, who demonize the very fiber of this country's prosperity, fraudulently calling on the people's compassion, and covering their real objectives, which is either full-blown Marxism or a Monarchy.
If the Supreme Court would introduce in their consideration of cases the public's opinion, as reported by the charlatan media, or election results, its rulings would be suspicious and appear to be subject to the course set by the custodians; while it is the custodians who were supposed to be subjective to the rulings of the court. The court subjected itself, it appears, to a vague, biased, manipulative and very fickle source of information, using that as standards in the highest court of the country.
The Federalists, during the founding of this country, were avowed monarchists, who would have wanted nothing more than to have established a monarchy to oppose King George of England. They are still among us having just changed their spots to revenge a centuries old defeat.
George Washington were, reportedly, offered either a President-for-Life office or that of King of America. He refused both. That is the caliber of judgment that is required at all levels of government, especially in the courts. Most especially the Supreme Court. It appears to be a vain expectation.
The time has come for the people to take back the custody of their trust. Politicians may well be elected to run the affairs of the people within the four corners of a Republic to avoid mob-rule, but the accountability of their actions should rest with the people directly.
Why do the electorate continue to vote for these wreckers of the American society?
It is called the Stockholm Syndrome.
