Do we still have a valid government?
We have done this by allowing our politicians selectively enforce laws, thereby shirking their sworn duties to fervently uphold our constitution and the laws of our country.
Immigration is in the lime-light right now, so we'll pursue it from that angle.......
"How can that be, Rabid?", you ask. Well, let me 'splain it from my point of view......
First off, by refusing to "call a spade a spade" they have attempted to degrade the issue from "Illegal Alien Invasion" to "Undocumented Worker Issues" and "Immigration Reform".
We do not have a immigration problem, we have an enforcement issue with illegal-aliens.
Personally, I have no objections to a controlled amount of immigrants coming to our country. However, they MUST have entered the U.S. legally, and abide by our laws. Immigrants should be screened and vetted in order to permanently attain the privilege of living in our country. Should they come across our borders any other way, they have broken the law and do not deserve to be here.
My primary objection revolves around the idea that certain laws are being completely ignored by our elected government officials. They, our supposed representatives, have deemed certain, select, laws inconvenient to their personal agenda(s) and their careers.
“Equal rights for all Americans” exists due to the founding concept that our laws are to be applied equally to all persons within our scope of authority. Because our government has chosen to ignore certain laws, it has in effect repealed every one of them without legal ground. By virtue of fiat, they have accomplished that which no one could have done within the designated bounds of authority granted our elected legislators, or within the constitutionally directed court system. The Constitution has been completely bypassed and in essence nullified!
Now that this corrupt idea has been accepted, in theory and practice by our politicians, our rights as Americans are now subject to the will and whim of those very elected government officials. This has set us on a path of constitutional corruption, based on the precedence that laws are no longer enforceable should one wish they not be.
Understand this well! Understand the impact to us as a nation!
By allowing selected criminal activities to go unpursued, and refusing to prosecute illegal activities, we have sent the clear message to everyone that our country finds it acceptable to ignore any law that may be of inconvenience to you. Additionally we have told them that we don't care!
Now that government officials have established the principle that they, themselves, decide which laws will, or won’t, be enforced, a sanctioned corruption of “The Constitution” has been established. It does not matter which political party happens to be in power from this moment on.
“We The People” have allowed the creation of an environment where government officials are bought, or coerced, by means of some lobbyist’s money. We have given up the founding tradition of rule of law, this having been replaced by rule of the loud, the rich, and socialists. This new government paradigm allows the taking subsidized bribes, favors, and threats, to get anything accomplished. This is just like the government of our southern neighbor.Our newly corrupted system, which chooses to panders to the wealthy and powerful, their lobbyists, and illegal aliens, will lead to economic failure. It already has been played out in Mexico, and will also play out in the good ol’ U.S.
Companies desire labor at a cost that no American can conceiveably work for. The illegal will work for those wages because they will live under deplorable conditions, work without benefits, and work beyond normally accepted hours. They will forsake safety, security, and socially accepted levels of comfort, for a pittance wage. The companies that hire them know this and exploit it at the cost to the citizens of the country the do business in.
By turning a blind-eye to these practices, the government allows these companies to break the law. This undermines everyone in this country. It undermines the normal citizens willingness to support our own government and the laws of the land.
This can be rectified by doing our civic duty and put our politicians on notice by reminding them that they have been elected and can be removed from office at the polls or by proving their dereliction of appointed duties.
"We The People" have to take action to contermand this by contacting and hounding our politicians, by going to the polls, by doing our duty as a true citizen of the United States of America.
