Our Leaders are Corrupt & Foolish, but not Stupid – They Just Want to Throw off the Constitution

Our Leaders are Corrupt & Foolish, but not Stupid – They Just Want to Throw  off the Constitution

It Doesn’t Make Sense.  Our leaders aren’t stupid. They may be foolish, they  may be corrupt, but they aren’t stupid.

This isn’t just a Democrat phenomenon. It didn’t start with President Obama’s  occupation of the White House. This is a manifestation of the Dualocracy: the  regime of the government party, that great two headed Hydra wherein the  Democrat  and Republican Parties are merely two heads on the same bird of prey.

When we look at the current direction our country is going in many people  say, “That just doesn’t make sense.” I hear this or a variation of it all the  time. We see laws, regulations, and programs spewing forth from Chicago on the  Potomac on a daily basis that just don’t add up.

Why would our government spend us into the poorhouse? Borrow more money than  anyone could ever pay back? Create money out of thin air like Weimar Republic?  Pass Healthcare reform to insure millions that’s really a tax, is almost  incomprehensible even to those who supposedly wrote it, and doesn’t insure  anyone? Why would we help overthrow our friends to empower our enemies? Why do  we look for ways to legalize illegals now and make promises about securing the  border in the future? Why? Why? Why?

It doesn’t make sense.

The problem is these people are too smart and their organizations are too  well-oiled to do so much that is nonsensical. I don’t believe the problem is  that they are from Bizarro World or that they are political savants. I believe  we are not looking at what is happening in and to our country in the proper  context.

Much like a person who needs glasses: if the lenses aren’t right everything  looks blurry or distorted. So too when we look at the actions of intelligent  people who are operating with a grand design of how they want the world to be  and nothing makes any sense: we need some new lenses. The problem most Tea  Party  types have understanding what our dear leaders are doing is that we think  they  should be trying to preserve the America we received from our forefathers.  We  look at their actions, and they seem like the theater of the absurd.

Who would do what they do if they want what we want?

That’s the key. They don’t want what we want.

We want to preserve our heritage and they want to fundamentally transform the  United States of America. We believe the Constitution recognizes what the  Declaration of Independence calls our “unalienable rights” and it is a good  thing to limit government from having the power to violate those rights. Our  Progressive masters bemoan the fact that the Constitution only gives negative  rights which limit the power of the central government. They dream instead of a  second bill of rights which bestows upon the central government and its mammoth  bureaucracy a mandate to legislate, regulate, and strangulate us into their  vision of utopia.

The problem with any Utopia is that it’s always based upon coercion. People  must be forced to do what some all-knowing god-like central authority decides  is  the way to achieve perfection. From Plato’s Republic to Sir Thomas More’s  Utopia  from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World to Kurt Vonnegut’s Piano Player the  visions  of a perfect society herded and regimented by an all-powerful  government will  always end up as some dystopian reflection of George Orwell’s  1984.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but perfection will never happen in this  life. We are imperfect people living in an imperfect world. God has endowed us  with certain rights and without them it is not possible to be all that we are  meant to be. The only way to ensure them is to limit governments from violating  them. That is why we have a Constitution to empower our government to do those  things we need done for the general good such as defense and providing a sound  money while limiting it from trampling upon the things that make us a free  people, namely our freedom of action, our privacy and our inviolability as  individuals.

In recent years this has been turned on its head as rights we plainly have,  rights which are explicitly enumerated such as the right to keep and bear arms  are endlessly debated and infringed upon while rights imagined are held up as  constitutional.

A case in point: What ever happened to the Fourth Amendment?

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and  effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and  no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or  affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the  persons or things to be seized.”

This is where our God given right to privacy is acknowledged and protected by  the Constitutional government of the United States. It expressly mentions the  inviolability of our “houses, papers, and effects.” It doesn’t mention  abortion.  This is the pattern in America today: ignore what the Constitution  plainly says  and extol imagined things the Progressives wish it said.

Today a Progressive Supreme Court has decreed there is a constitutional right  to privacy involved when a woman wants to terminate the life of an unborn child  and nowhere else in our 21st century surveillance state America? The right to  terminate life is protected and even subsidized by the central government and  the right to have a private conversation is no longer acknowledged. Today in  the  post-constitutional America it is all right for the government to listen to  and  record every communication of every citizen and the one person who tells us  that  they are doing so is a traitor.

All it takes is the right set of lenses and we can see clearly. Rather than  not making any sense it all makes total sense. Our leaders are leading us from  where we have been: a constitutionally limited government ensuring personal  freedom, individual liberty and economic opportunity to a centrally-planned,  highly regimented, constantly watched society marching lock-step towards a  utopia that will never work. With leaders like this all I can do is echo Scott  Adams warning, “Don’t step in the leadership.”
