Today, I wear a black arm-band, and hang my head in shame.
Yesterday, the Republic was dealt another blow, and without some much needed CPR is in danger of collapsing under the strain of democracy.
Today, democracy (mob rule) has over-ridden the law.
I speak of the Department of Homeland Security determining that certain illegal aliens will be neither prosecuted nor sent packing. I speak of the directive from Janet Napolitano to launch a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants slated for deportation in an effort to thin the list and focus resources on kicking out criminals.
Many people have already spoken out about this claiming that it is simply a back-door way to provide amnesty for illegal aliens. While I agree with these critics 100% I see something far more dangerous than illegal immigrants happening here.
Before I talk about that, let me first make clear my position on illegal aliens. I believe they come in two different flavors:-
1. the person who came here legally, and has overstayed his visa and hence is now illegal
2. the person who slithered across the border in the dark of night and who has not passed through any entry port
I believe the two groups should be treated fairly and quickly as follows:-
1. Members of group 1 should be given 30 days in which to either leave the country or to extend the terms under which they originally entered, or commence the process of obtaining a green card or citizenship. If they have not proven that such activities have commenced within that 30 day period, they automatically fall into category 2.
2. Members of group 2 are given no time. They are marched through a hearing in front of a local judge, with no right of representation, and shipped off on the first bus to the border where they are unceremoniously dumped. I do not care if they have US born children, families or any of that crap. If they slithered across the border, they get thrown out…end of story.
This sounds harsh, but I believe, in reality, is the only way to solve the problem. I will post more on how I believe the illegal alien problem should be dealt with in a future post. However, I believe we have an enforcement problem, not an illegal alien problem. With the right enforcement, the problem goes away.
Now, back to what I see is the real issue.
is not a democracy. I don’t care how many times people of both sides of the political aisle call it a democracy, the truth is that it is NOT and never has been. United States of America
United States is a . A Republic is ruled by law….a democracy is ruled by the majority. Representative Republic
The law that this Republic is ruled by is the Constitution. The Constitution sets out the obligations and rights of the federal government. It sets out how the government should work and it sets out the procedures for changing the law when the people so desire. It is NOT a fluid document as the left proclaims it to be. It is a static set of rules and until the rules are changed through the means provided in it, they shall remain exactly as written.
A democracy on the other hand, has no rules. It is controlled by a vote of the people. The people decide what to do and how to do it. A democracy is characterized by the fact that when a certain group of people with similar beliefs outnumbers a group with opposing beliefs, the larger group wins and has total power. Democracies ALWAYS lead to oligarchies or dictatorships. A democracy is in fact an invitation to tyranny.
We do our children a great disservice when we speak of a democracy. We do them a great disservice when we allow our schools to teach that
is the greatest democracy ever known. We do ourselves great damage when we allow our leaders to talk about the great Democracy that America is. America
I say again, we are not a Democracy! We are a
controlled by the rule of law, not by mob rule. Representative Republic
We use a democratic process to chose who we wish our leaders to be, however we DO NOT and NEVER SHOULD provide those leaders with the power to usurp the rule of law.
And then Janet Napolitano comes along and decides that prosecuting illegal aliens is not a good idea. After all, they are nice people, going to school, holding down jobs, getting paid cash under the table, sending dollars back to their home country etc etc.
Well, Napolitano, answer this!
When the Dream Act failed in Congress, it failed because the congress was representing the views of the people, and applying the laws under which this Republic was formed. This is not a case of mob rule but a case of a fully functioning Government applying the law as set out in the Constitution and according to the powers that are provided to the government under that document.
What right do you have to determine that the actions of Congress are wrong, so you decide that you can effect the same provisions of the Dream Act through DHS policy?
Under what divine or man-made principal do you believe you have the right to circumvent the law in this manner?
You, ma’am, are an utter disgrace. Refusal to follow the rule of law, refusing to accept the rule of law, is just the start of the list of crimes you are committing.
But she is just a political appointee, doing the bidding of her puppet master, the boy-God Obama. This is how she repays him for the appointment. She and her co-conspirator Holder, must enjoy their late night “drinkies” as they plot how to best serve their master.
You see, the problem is that the left does NOT WANT
to know that she is a Republic. The left wants us to believe in democracy. The left knows what a democracy really is and is setting the table now so that they can feast on the ignorant when tyranny wins (and it will if we believe we are a democracy)! America
What saddens me and causes me more heartburn than the idiot in the White House, are the rest of his clown posse. I actually understand what Obama is doing….he is preparing for the ultimate subjugation of the American people to rule by whoever claims the seat of power. He is an ideologue who will stop at nothing to fundamentally transform
I get the likes of Napolitano and Holder…they have both been bought and paid for and will do the bidding of their master as long as they are provided with the trinkets that come with their position. (I wonder what would happen when those trinkets that they are so addicted to stop flowing their way? Will they still corrupt the law as they have been doing, or will they simply crawl into some whole and spend the rest of their lousy lives picking fleas off each other?)
What I don’t get is the two most powerful idiots in the progressive congress. Both dirty Harry Reid and fancy Nancy Pelosi have come out and SUPPORTED what Napolitano has done.
"This new DHS directive will help prioritize our limited enforcement resources to focus on serious felons, gang members and individuals who are a national security threat rather than college students and veterans who have risked their lives for our country," Reid said in a statement. "I am especially pleased about the impact these new policies will have on those who would benefit from the DREAM Act. ... We lose a lot by sending them back to countries they do not know."
How many illegals in custody are veterans who risked their lives for this country? But, even if there were some, I am sorry….there are legal ways into this country. Slithering through the bathroom window is not one of them.
Again I digress.
Pelosi and Reid are complicit in their attempts to destroy the rule of law. They both supported the Dream Act and now that it failed, support the treasonous DHS and DOJ in their efforts to ignore the rule of law.
And every one of YOU who fails to see this distinction is playing right into the hands of the left’s agenda. Just ten easy steps taken over a long period and the left will win…
First, get the children. If they believe a falsehood, then we just wait a few years and they will be voting.
Second, use the children and the elderly to get support (and animals – nobody likes seeing animals harmed) – these are the greatest weapons in the progressive armory.
Third…scare tactics using the first responders as the weapons…if there is not enough money threaten this group with lower pay/benefits/employment
Fourth….addict the people to the freebies of government largesse
Fifth….start destroying the LAW. Make it irrelevant. Make it about fairness, not truth. Make it irrelevant and “old” and talk about the Constitution being a dynamic document.
Sixth…wait for the elderly, the educated, to die. Hurry it along with universal healthcare that fails to provide the best possible health care but rather the cheapest possible wastecare.
Seventh…support a fool to be the titular head of the movement. Someone that the people will like but is also corrupt to his bones. If the right person is not eligible, buy hs eligibility. The people are already corrupt and to buy that will not cost more than a few trinkets.
Eighth…use ridicule to destroy his opponents. Lie as often as possible. The people no longer demand the truth as the LAW does not acknowledge the truth any more.
Nineth…when the time is right create a fiscal emergency, a defense emergency, any sort of emergency that will take the lemmings eyes away from the real issues to focus on the emergency
Tenth….the reign of tyranny begins. The useful idiots in congress that supported the destruction of the law will be dealt with harshly. No tyrant will ever trust their evil money grubbing heads…they will roll quickly to incarceration or worse.
And what of the voters? The people who continue to elect the idiots in congress who refuse to see they are nothing but tools for the elites…they will become the worker ants that toil for crumbs thrown to them by the tyrants who rule.
You see…what looks like a simple attempt to provide amnesty to illegals is far more than that.
It is a step toward the destruction of Law…and paving the way for democracy and the tyranny that follows.
We must stand up and be counted. We must protect the Republic.
Our very futures depend on it.
