In terms of her profession, Nancy Pelosi is the poorest representative in memory, let alone the most secularly-execrable Speaker of the House in American’s brief history … with some variations, the same can be said for Harry Reid in the Senate.
These two, along with their Republican and Democratic accomplices make up the most distrusted major institution in American history; with a rating of less than 12 percent support, they are clearly the most unpopular Congress ever.
Gallup’s annual update on confidence in institutions finds just 12% of Americans expressing confidence in Congress, the lowest of the 16 institutions tested this year, and the worst rating Gallup has measured for any institution in the 35-year history of this question. [ Gallup poll]
Even Big Business out polls them.
This Congress, and several of its predecessors, has abdicated all responsibility and authority – both political and moral.
Perhaps the lips of the corpse trembles and the embalmer’s mirror fogs, but the body is as dead as a Texas Armadillo on Interstate 10.
Continuing to accommodate the socialists’ headlock on our nation, Obama’s secular monarchy, and this congress are endangering our Republic, even democracy itself.
What was once a decent and great deliberative body has become a duplicitous, baleful, non-representative, embarrassing and uncaring bowery of whores, and a destructive coating on the people’s trust – the government of the United States of America is now nothing short of a political brothel.
In a democracy, the responsibility of the people towards governments also permits them an input to those governments. [Citizens] should always be prepared to contend for justice, truth and liberty. Where these are threatened and the threat goes unchecked, the world will be made all the darker, and the affairs of men made all the more godless. [Cranmer]
Intrinsic to a free republic – above all other forms of government – is the importance of each individual as created and endowed by God. That republic is chartered, by the people, to allow for its own interrogation, correction, and chastisement – each of these is necessary from time to time, as a result of man’s fallen and corrupted nature.
It does so by emphasizing that powerful officers of government are accountable to the people (apparently anathema to the politician’s worldview). It is human to screw up, national governments subject to the will of a fallible electorate can, and do, make mistakes, but they are able to rectify their mistakes … and so they maintain and perpetuate their fiduciary responsibilities.
When they refuse, a spirit of tyranny supplants freedom and liberty, and totalitarianism, in all its perverted and virulent forms, like mold, begins to grow. Everything in the people’s lives comes under the control of one federal authority, opposition is not tolerated, to question those in authority is treason, and to open corruption to the light is heretical.
To the Supreme Court I say, the American people are angry. They are humbly beseeching you, the only organ of our constitutional republic whose bed sheets remain unsullied by the sordid disclosures of recent years, to intervene, in your role as protectors of the Rule of Law, in order to preserve the peace and security of our Republic.
The people’s House of Representatives and the people’s Senate have failed them … the Executive branch is a useless bloated pig, whose departments and agencies have become crippled with the gout of their dissipation. You alone in your deliberations can begin to reverse the damages of the past half century of progressive philosophies.
While the free and independent citizens of this land suffer recession and hardship, with hundreds of thousands losing their jobs, their homes, and their businesses, many members of Congress (who purport to represent them) are milching the federal udder, while many others are guilty of deception, profligacy and fraud.
The people have lost confidence in their elected representatives; too many appear arrogant, haughty and detached. They are shameless in their scandal. The reputation of their assembly is sullied, their members are debauched and policies debased. The oath of their office – sworn before God and in the presence of this nations’ citizens – is meaningless.
This patriot beseeches all Americans, of all persuasions, to join together in this new but not so civil war and force a change upon this Congress – and perhaps this president and vice-president.
There can be no place in public life for those who’ve shown a disregard for their obligations to the people. Disgrace and disingenuousness have replaced integrity and trust. Surreptitious greed and outrageous avarice have corrupted this once noble American institution.
More than any time in two centuries plus, our government is in need of honest, fearless and morally upright people. It is time for America to have its Cromwell (who spoke thus to England’s parliament in his day):
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone!
So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!
We feel we can do little more than call upon the people:
In the name of God my fellow citizens, let us rid this land of this ship of fools through the courts and the polls … the sooner the better.
