Public Servants Vs. Self-Serving Pretenders

Written by Allan Erickson on January 11, 2023

There are two kinds of public officials: public servants vs. self-serving pretenders.

Real public servants are rare. Real public servants care about The People: their rights, and their liberty. Real public servants actually serve, prioritizing the interests of The People. Real public servants are not selfish but selfless.

Pretenders are plentiful. They are 180 degrees out of phase. They are self-serving, selfish, greedy, power-hungry, and egocentric. They talk about liberty and rights but it is only lip service. The People are not at the top of their list of concerns. Insider trading and re-election are far more important considerations.

Sad to say, most members of the House of Representatives and the Senate are pretenders. They are led by President Pretender. Given voting records, most of the pretenders are Democrats and most of the public servants are conservatives. Questions we must answer: why do we keep voting for pretenders, or are pretenders that good at election fraud?

Although there is some crossover, conservatives tend to follow the Founders, working to uphold the Constitution and protect citizens’ individual rights as per their oath. Pretenders overwhelmingly promote humanism and communism. Pretenders have declared war on the Founders’ vision, pushing for more centralized government power at every turn. Their moral code shifts with prevailing winds whereas conservatives tend to be Judeo-Christian traditionalists.

Bottom line: we are in a war between these competing forces, one that will determine the future of the country, very soon. One side pretends to care about safety and security, but only the conservatives actually deliver, though in an incomplete fashion.

Pretenders have held sway for a long while. Their track record is clear. Are we safer and more secure in the following areas thanks to pretenders?

Upholding the Constitution
Securing Rights
Saving Resources
National Security
Border Security
Economic Security
Law Enforcement
Public Health
Terrorism
Government Spending

Is it fair to say pretenders have failed catastrophically for many decades? If so, why would we ever support pretenders and forsake conservatives?

Furthermore, pretenders work to destroy traditional Americanism because it stands in the way of their globalist ambitions. So this war is actually between a small band of patriots often referred to as deplorables, and an enormous army of international pretenders whose only interest is power.

Stay tuned for a new wave of manufactured crises sponsored by the pretenders.
