It’s almost here…the moment America chooses a new Congress. But unlike former years when our problems were simply economic…we are facing issues that could end the Great American Experiment.
The Founders spent blood and treasure to gift us a system that was unique, because:
— It recognized that individual rights are derived from a Creator.
— It was based on enduring principles compatible with “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”
— It recognized human imperfection and that a tendency to abuse power is ever present in the human heart.
— It restrained those in power through a written Constitution which carefully divided, balanced, and separated the powers of government and then intricately knitted them back together again through a system of checks and balances.
— It left all powers with the people, except those which, by their consent, the people delegated to government -and then made provision for their withdrawing that power, if it was abused.
We have slowly, but surely, given our Republic away to those looking to violate those principles…and bring our system down. They gave paltering promises, in order to secure their positions. They worked arduously with America’s enemies within, serving their careers rather than the citizens they vowed to serve.
They have betrayed America.
Now they have found a new weapon for their arsenal: Bowing to the ideology of Islam.
Out of either sheer ignorance…but more likely lowly cravenness…Lawmakers have been bowing to followers of an ideology that neither respects the country they invaded, NOR the Constitution which guides that country’s people.
One recent example of this grotesque acquiescence can be seen in Wisconsin. A Green Bay Alderman, Chris Wery, questioned Heba Mohammad, after the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay graduate asked the alderman why city bus service is not free on Election Day.
Wery agreed to check into the bus service question, but then he asked Mohammad about her involvement in starting a Muslim Student Association (MSA) group at UW-Green Bay. MSA is a branch, on campuses, of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“I just want to be assured that your group in no way promotes or defends militant Islamic ideology,” Wery wrote, asking if Mohammad and the association condemn “terrorist groups such as Hamas.” Mohammad refused to answer Wery’s questions and then posted the exchange on Facebook, prompting many users of the site to accuse the alderman of bigotry and profiling.
Wery backed down and apologized. Mohammad never answered a legitimate question, but rather bullied the Alderman into shame for doing his job: Looking out for the Republic.
Starting from a State representative, to a Federal Representative…Americans can no longer allow themselves the luxury of honoring spineless, career politiques. If they betray their oath, and therefore the Republic: TOSS ‘EM on Election Day.
In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, at the close of the Convention, Ben Franklin was queried as he left Independence Hall, by a lady who asked Dr. Franklin, “Well Doctor what have we got, a republic or a monarchy.” Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.”
The question still remains: Can we keep it?
