We are, or were at one time, a nation of laws. Laws we hoped would be applied equally to all citizens of this country. Justice is blind; well, she used to be. Now she’s as partisan as hell. Her scales of justice tilt wildly in the breeze, blown by whatever popular whim or politically correct trend is currently in fashion. Or by whatever voting bloc, no matter how truly representative of the greater population, happens to be the protected flavor of the week. Odd, we once imagined rights that we were endowed with; certain unalienable rights. We declared these rights to be so. Of course we declared to have been endowed with them by a creator; and seeing as that term in and of itself is now deemed to be so oppressive, obviously we must let other men decide what our rights are. And we let them create the laws to govern us. And we let them exclude themselves from those very same laws, apply them with prejudice or ignore them at their will. It would appear that we fought to over throw ol’ George III so we could create our own king some 240 years later.

I didn't know I was elected until I heard about it in the press...

We can all be political at times. I however, and I’ll pat myself on the back here, have no interest in shredding our founding documents or destroying the fabric of this country to win an ideological point. I expect that when someone holds their hand up in a solemn oath to uphold the laws of this country, they damn well better. The shame is, we have passed that point years ago. And we passed it whistling by the graveyard the whole time, afraid to cause a “constitutional’” or other kind of crisis, either because we are not paying attention to those we empower to govern us, or because we are too fractured a population to even care anymore. So we’re stupid or complicit, take your pick, in the destruction of the greatest country ever to grace this planet. Oops, my politically incorrect patriotism is showing…Shoot, I gotta watch that, lest I offend those hyphenated Americans who came here looking for the American welfare dream, unable to call themselves Americans because they have a sweet spot in their hearts for the very place they escaped from in the first place.

As I write this, thousands of non-citizens (can’t say illegals, can’t say foreigners, etc.) are flooding the southern states after being led to believe that the current administration’s policies will welcome them in; once they land they can stay. We’ll just ship them from there to places like Boston, or Virginia and no harm no foul. Hey it’s the dream act; someone dreamed up being able to force the rest of the country to pay for these folks from this point on. And pay we will. Additional unskilled labor means wages will drop, even given the wonderful largess of the Democrat’s pushing a higher minimum wage. Of course, once minimum wages increase, available jobs will disappear. Be ready for that. Fewer jobs mean fewer people paying for these democrats-to-be, forcing whoever might be left working to pay higher taxes to fund their “in state” tuitions, Obamacare costs, SNAP, Obamaphones; you name it, we’ll fund it. And we’ll be called racist or some type of “phobe” for daring to complain about it. Think the Democrats are alone here? Think again. The Republican Party can’t seem to provide the US Chamber of commerce with enough cheap labor to keep their members happy and their marble bathrooms clean.

When do we as a nation decide when we have had enough? What will it take for us to realize that we are not as divided as those who wish to rule us would like us to be? For as long as we are distracted, looking with great disdain at one another, they will continue to walk up behind us to whisper in our ears how “the other guy” is the problem and they are the solution, if only we continue to keep them in power and wealth.

The only oath these people have ever taken is to themselves. They look us straight in the face and swear to uphold the law of the land, to be our servants, looking out for our best interests, after which they proceed to sell us into poverty and plunder our rights, wealth and freedoms. Whether we like it or not, we have immigration laws. The government would rather sue the states that try to enforce the very same federal laws they ignore themselves. Why federal tax dollars should be allowed to flow into “sanctuary” cities that skirt federal law is beyond me, although explainable. Who would prosecute the mayors of these cities? Obama? Holder? It is their job to do so, but they will not and neither we, nor the press will demand that they do so. Someone might call us a name.  Remember, this is what your current democratically elected Tyrant promised:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

And yet, laws that he passes, he enforces only when it suits him. Others he ignores; many he skirts. And his supporters make excuses for his behavior, quite sure that anyone who speaks of his failures is full of hate. Until someone from another party comes in to try the same thing, then they squeal like an endangered species of pig suffering the effects of global warming. And in the meantime, countless citizens are being harmed by the very government they elected to serve them.

The last time an administration used the power of the federal government illegally against its citizens, the press led the charge for impeachment. Remember the left hated Nixon with a great fervor; Ask Hillary, although she was fired from the house judiciary committee, but that’s another story. Yes, old Dick decided to use the IRS against his foes; this is from Article two of the Articles of Impeachment:

acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

The end result wasn’t that Dick got run out of town. No, the republicans met with him face to face and told him to get the hell out. And somehow, for the good of the county, and seeing as it was the only right thing to do, he boarded Marine one and thank goodness, we were finished with him.

Where is that type of leadership in the house today? Where are those watchdogs of the press now? Where any good watchdog should be one would guess; asleep at the foot of their master’s bed, protecting him from harm. Woof. They eagerly wag their tails as Lois Lerner gets paid her handsome pension to laugh in the face of the very Americans she used her agency to intimidate, her empty hard drives of no concern to a press that once hemmed and hawed over an 18 minute gap created by a hapless secretary of a hated president. Try telling the IRS you don’t have the last seven years of your tax returns; your hard drive crash will net you five-to-ten at the Graybar Inn and Suites, with an entrance fee that garnishes your wages for life and takes your home. Lois thanks you personally for funding her retirement.

You can spin this any way you’d like; Blame Bush, blame global warming, call it a war on women, say it’s racist, blame it on a friggin’ video if you want. But this administration is lawless, is abusing its power in order to radically and fundamentally change this country, as it promised it would. Is this the change you intended? Is this how you believe your government should behave? Whatever excuse you use, whatever blame shifting technique you’d like to employ, one thing is for certain; the pendulum always swings back. You may have a hard time gaining sympathy from those of us who are working three jobs to make ends meet, if we are lucky enough to be working in the first place.

Long live the king….
