The Sad But True State of American Politics
Or government is no longer august citadels of reason where the highest standards of patriotism and civilized decorum are practiced, where all energy is laser-focused on what is best for our nation’s security and fiscal health, where party affiliation is second to the needs of “We the People” and truth and honor abound.
Maybe it was never quite as ideal and dedicated as the paragraph above reflects, but even in my 82 years on earth, I can remember when it was a hell of a sight better than it is now. When at least the three branches had a common cause and only disagreed on which path to take to get there.
Our government has deteriorated into a three-ring circus, complete with elephants, donkeys and an overabundance of clowns.
No longer do the interests of America take precedent, no longer does the twenty trillion-pound albatross of national debt concern either party enough to deserve a plank in a political platform, not even a splinter.
Adam Schiff has devoted his tenure in office, not to building up a nation, but bringing down a president, his ever-changing charges of collusion, obstruction of justice and any thread that sticks out far enough to get his grubby fingers on to be grasped and pulled out far enough to attract the attention of a media who are just as dedicated to his cause as he is.
And the president many times plays right into their hands with some ultra-abrasive midnight tweet that liberal guests on the network breakfast shows can interpret in myriad negative ways and dominate a couple of hours of news cycle while waiting for the afternoon twitter dispatch to do the same thing on the early evening shows.
The Democrats in both legislative houses are gleefully watching the influx of illegals coming into the country and restlessly await the day until they can control all three branches enough to declare a mass amnesty and procure a whole new constituency of Democrat voters.
Oh, they’ll never admit it and it will be a little more incremental that I stated it, but in the end that is their aim.
As when mankind interferes in the natural flow of things in nature, such as introducing the mongoose in Hawaii to eat the rats that were harming the taro crop. The problem was that one is a nocturnal feeder and the other a daylight feeder, the result, they were stuck with rats and mongoose and no help for the taro plant.
The point I am trying to make is that a similar scenario is beginning to have an impact on Europe where millions of Muslim immigrants - who by the way don’t practice abortion and reproduce almost exponentially - are coming of age as European citizens and flexing their political muscle.
The upshot is that - back in the US - in a generation or so, in the Democratic Party, Hispanics will be such a major voting block that more and more liberal immigration policies will have to be enacted to keep them loyal and, as one thing begets the other, the party will eventually be taken out of the hands of the Chuck Schumers, Adam Schiffs, Nancy Pelosis, et al, or perhaps a powerful third party will emerge and the establishment Democratic Party will languish on the garbage pile of those who tempted fate and lost.
Before you cherry pickers fire up your iPads to shoot off a nasty missive condemning me as a Hispanophobic fanatic who doesn’t believe in immigration, let me, not that it’s going to help with most of you small-minded poison fingers, let me make a true and valid statement.
I happen to believe in immigration. Being of Irish lineage that has only been in America for less than two hundred years, I would not be here without immigration, so I believe and support it enthusiastically.
Caveat: I support legal, controlled immigration, the kind that every naturalized American had to submit to, not because some group of politicians wants to create a new voting bloc. Not because people carrying flags of the nation of their origins want to walk into my country without going through the process.
Living in this nation is a privilege, a chance at a life that is not available any other place on earth and the only people who should be allowed a chance at it should be those who come here add something besides a check mark on a ballot beside some Democrat's name.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
