One thing that seems so obvious to me and yet no one seems to be catching it, and no one has made any comments in the media about, is that we have politicians usurping the Constitution at the highest leadership levels through the advancement of the regulatory bureaucracy to promote their agendas.
Okay so, yes, there are some who have caught that obvious power play in Health Care, Energy, Employment, Budgeting, Military, Aviation, and Education, etc - going on right now, but no one seems to have made the connection that; any politician who would use the regulatory bureaucracy to promote their political agendas, would certainly use any and all of the bureaucracy to go after their political adversaries.
Now then, I ask; is that happening right now? Yes, yes, it is. I would submit to you that there are things going on behind the scenes where the justice department for instance is or soon will be beginning investigations into the affairs of regular citizens, businessmen, media, and political supporters of the opposing party.
We know this happens in other countries. In fact, it is so obvious in places such as Venezuela, Russia, and our third world that it is considered the norm. Those who oppose are thrown in prison under trumped up charges, it's such a common occurrence, we just say; "of course" no real revelation there.
Why is it so hard for Americans to see this happening in the here and now, in milder forms? One doesn't really have to read between the lines much to see it, and yet, it seems as if the "enemies list" of any given executive branch never seems to come out until well after the fact, in subsequent years to come.
Many in our society that are on the side of the current leadership, see no problem with this, after all, it is politics, a dirty game, after all - and if their side wasn't doing it, then the other side would be doing it to them instead. Yes, perhaps, but that doesn't make the two-wrongs a right. Nor does it give validity to any argument that politically usurping the Constitution to attack the political opposition is okay, it's not, and it is an abuse of power.
There are things afoot right now which are pretty rotten, and they need to stop, just as things the prior were not okay either. In this shiny city on the hill, we must stand for more. We must stand on our principles, and those values we hold dear; truth, justice, and the American Way, for if we don't we shall surely lose our way. So, I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
