Republicans caved—something for which they’ve proven themselves perpetually and profoundly proficient—in what they themselves declared to be their constitutional duty; namely, objecting to the certification of some states’ Electoral College votes over irregularities and illegalities in those state elections. Their justification for reneging on their self-professed constitutional duty was to defy protestors who unconstitutionally disrupted yesterday’s Capital Hill proceedings by breaching the Capital and breaking into Congress. I guess, in the minds of these reneging Republican ninnies, the unconstitutional behavior of others negates their own constitutional obligations. Thus, to teach unconstitutional protestors a lesson, these prevaricating Republicans unconstitutionally crammed a fraudulent election down the protestors’ throats, foolishly believing that by doing so they were throwing cold water rather than combustible fuel on protestors’ fiery passions.
I don’t know about you, but I’d like to know why Black Lives Matter and Antifa protestors are called peaceful, but yesterday’s Capital Hill protestors are roundly condemned as insurrectionists, who are endangering our democracy for daring to disrupt Congress. Apparently, it’s okay and no danger to democracy if BLM and Antifa protestors burn down your business, but it’s not okay for protestors to barge in on Congress’ business. Now, I’m not saying the latter is acceptable; I’m just asking why the former is admissible. When BLM and Antifa protestors burn down businesses, loot stores, block streets, harass neighborhoods, take over government buildings, and even cordon off city blocks as their own autonomous zones, there’s no call for the National Guard, but a call to defund the police. However, Nancy Pelosi is on the phone, faster than a sacred cheetah, calling for the National Guard and increased police protection the moment she spots a MAGA hat outside her Capital Hill office window.
By Republicans own admission, yesterdays certification of the Electoral College vote for Joe Biden as our 46th president was perfunctory and ceremonial. In other words, the outcome was certain and Republican protests would have proven to be nothing more than a flamboyant exercise in futility, Yet, as always, Republican politicians expected to pacify those they represent with a bit of rhetoric rather than bona fide results. To their chagrin, however, they discovered that some of their constituents are no longer satisfied with mere oratory without meaningful outcome. Consequently, they took matters into their own hands and marched on our Capital demanding action. Afterward, the action demanders were damned all around and Republicans took to the stump to stick their finger-wagging pointing finger into the protestors’ eyes.
Millions of Americans who genuinely believe our presidential election was fraudulent are being told by our press, as well as politicians on both sides of the political aisle, to sit-down and shut-up. They are being repeatedly told that there is no proof to verify a fraudulent election, despite such things as video evidence, thousands of sworn affidavits by eyewitnesses, and unexplained statistical impossibilities. At the same time, all their legitimate questions about our election remain unanswered and no evidence is ever presented to them to disprove massive voter fraud. Instead, all who feel something untoward has taken place are simply told that it is their patriotic duty to zip their lip and become zealous toadies to our present-day politicians and press.
If this was all that was awry in America today, it would certainly be enough to cause concern for the future of our representative republic. Unfortunately, it is but the tip of the iceberg. We’re now living under a government that has seized tyrannical control over our lives and livelihoods, by suspending our constitutional rights and freedoms under the ruse of protecting us from a pandemic. Furthermore, we’ve just turned over total control of our nation to a political party that has vowed in umpteen different ways to transform our representative republic into a tyrannical socialist state. In addition, our new president has vowed to sign legislation in his first 100 days in office, Democrats’ Equality Act, that will for all practical purposes outlaw the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these United States. In light of all of this, I’m not surprised, as almost every American is claiming to be, by enraged Americans storming our Capital yesterday. After all, do we not find ourselves in a time today when the increasingly draconian policies and autocratic actions of our politicians are indisputably endangering our inalienable and God-given rights?
In America’s Birth Certificate, the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers penned some most apropos words for our day and time. Far from claiming, as our present-day politicians do, that we the people have no right to disrupt governmental procedures or to protest or defy a draconian government, our Founding Fathers contended that people not only have the right, but the duty to rise up and overthrow any government that becomes what our government is definitely becoming. If you don’t believe it, here it is; read it for yourself.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
