ODDITIES…They Only have Themselves to Blame…
This is in reference to those who make the laws — that unfortunately for some (or most), invariably come back to haunt them. After a rather unique discussion around here at The Contemplative Thinker, we are perplexed at the amount of safeguards that are put into place i.e., Committees, focus groups, the media outpouring of incorrect information, and lastly of course the notion of republican government which is meaningfully defined as:
A form of government in which power is explicitly vested in the people, who in turn exercise their power through elected representatives. A republic is a form of government in which power resides in the people, and the government is ruled by elected leaders run according to law.
Worthy of a special note here is that first the people have all the rights and elect representatives to exercise that power by doing the will of the people.
Now this brings up a tremendous dilemma for those who are elected representatives. As the situation now exists, it is not a dilemma but rather an option insofar as the decision the representative is going to make. The most persistent of the willful offenders finding attempts to get a representative in any option are called “special interest groups.” These groups make imperative decision-making by representatives appear to be more urgent than necessary — often times making money as the reward to get their way.
Therefore everything from campaign finance to same-sex marriages, LGBT support to matters concerning our own 2nd Amendment constitutional rights to own and use a firearm have advocacy groups that constantly lobby our representatives to get their way — even against the will of the people. (Please see website, Discover the Networks as listed here.)
Now we are hoping that you will see what kind of disarray that this form of government can cause with an individual’s burning desire along the lines of human nature and/or their desire for money.
What happens when your country’s President decides to break the Constitutional guarantees that we, the people, have every right to keep. Matters of immigration policy are not even mentioned, yet the President believes he is the smartest person to have ever existed on earth. How about the former head of the senate, Harry Reid (D-NV), stopping the vote dealing with humans as cargo in the senate today. Or how about the misrepresentation by the former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) along with the super money deals that actually got a Bill passed into law, although not even written yet.
So I could go on writing here about the same senseless and absurd rubbish on behalf of all political parties. It is important to note that the attempt at stopping the ludicrous actions by government representatives has been addressed; one example that comes to my mind is the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that has around eight (6 to 8) Subcommittees.
Finally as much as the government officials are trying to get ahead and stay ahead of scandals, unique media reporting, there will still be someone who feels somewhat entitled to disobey or be in irrational compliance with our laws. For some reason people such as Hillary Clinton, Charles Rangel, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and so many others believe that they are above the law and therefore can abuse or be asinine when doing day-to-day business with respecting our Nation’s Constitution.
