Liberals are the most intolerant of human beings and their political/ judicial leaders are tyrants. Liberals and progressives have never been able to advance their Marxist agenda through elections. The American people are more conservative than liberal. Recent polling reveals that more Americans self identify as conservative (40%) by a two to one margin over those self-identifying as liberals (21%). Not surprisingly, Americans continually elect divided government.

But, unfortunately, some American institutions like the educational establishment, the media, the entertainment industry and the judiciary (the legal establishment) are almost completely liberal. It is liberal educational institutions that impose speech codes. Liberals seek to restrict religious liberty and the right of self defense.

The nation-wide legalization of abortion could never have been accomplished without judicial overreach. Now we can say the same of same sex marriage. Forty-two states, either through direct ballot initiatives or by legislative action of the people’s elected representatives have passed laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman. The 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), outlawing any federal recognition of same sex marriage, passed both houses of Congress with veto proof majorities and was signed by President Clinton.

In my state of Iowa it was the judicial branch that forced same sex marriage on we the people. The people responded by voting not to retain these judges, but the damage was done. The people’s elected representatives in the legislature and governor’s office have been afraid to enforce the will of the people. Likewise, the judicial tyranny experienced in Iowa has been repeated in other states and at the federal level. We truly are subject to a judicial oligarchy.

This week witnessed a new low in liberal antics in the otherwise conservative state of Texas. Wildly popular Governor Rick Perry, who coincidentally just happens to be a possible 2016 Presidential candidate, was indicted by a grand jury for supposed felony abuse of power (the statute refers to misuse of government property, not constitutional authority)and for “coercion of a public servant.”

The indictment by a grand jury from heavily Democratic Travis County stems from an incident in April 2013 when Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was convicted of drunk driving. At the time, Lehmberg was the head of the public integrity unit responsible for investigating corruption and misconduct by public officials. Her drunken, arrogant behavior when she was arrested was recorded on video. Governor Perry asked her to resign. She refused.

If it is a crime, or coercion, for a chief executive to ask for the resignation of disgraced public officials, then every sitting governor or the President should be very careful now. Perry threatened to veto funding for her agency if she did not resign and eventually did so. The Texas constitution gives the governor the authority to make such vetoes. Apparently, Lehmberg and her liberal friends believe that they have some divine right to hold office.

The office led by DA Lehmberg is the same one responsible for the political harassment of Republican Congressman Tom Delay. They were successful in destroying his political career. His original conviction for influence peddling was overturned by the appellate court last September, but the tyrannical Democrats achieved their objective.

Now they are calling for Perry’s resignation and attempting to torpedo his Presidential aspirations. They are using the same tactics that they successfully used against Governor Sarah Palin to get her to resign by continually filing bogus legal charges. Palin, like DeLay and Perry was innocent of any wrong doing, but that doesn’t matter to Democrats. To them, it’s a crime to be a conservative and govern. These tyrants are abetted by their cohorts in the legal and justice system.

People eventually get tired of this sort of tyranny and do something about it. It’s about time.
