"He doesn’t scare."

Via Jeffery

The United States of America that we grew up in, and in some cases fought for, no longer exists. I would like to write something stirring in defense of our Constitution, but it isn’t under attack. It is simply ignored. Some have proposed that we have a Constitutional convention to add new amendments. What would that accomplish?

Would our present Federal government respect a set of new amendments when they don’t respect the old ones? What good does it do to insist on one’s rights as a citizen, when in fact mere citizenship has lost its meaning? Americans have no rights officials in Washington feel bound to recognize. Both Republicans and Democrats overrule majority opinion as a matter of course. They do not doubt for a moment that they are the best and brightest, and that our voting franchise is merely an antiquated inconvenience. My elected representatives represent no one but themselves. 


  1. That article probably expresses the mind and attitude of a lot of Americans at this point.

    Besides, if he scares the daylights out of the politicians and the establishment, then he's headed in the right direction. Liberty flourishes when the government fears the citizens.

      Yup. TJ

  2. Yep. Pretty much sums it up for me (in a more articulate way than I could have expressed). I keep telling folks (that want to listen) that NO ONE represents you (that would be the collective 'you' and me): period.

    1. Just leave me the hell alone, fat chance of course.
