Last month we looked at the “Noble Experiment,” the radical political system under which the Government reported to the people, rather than the reverse. Note that the United States of America is the only country in history to be founded on a socio/economic/political concept, rather than the mere capturing and controlling land areas.
Our forefathers risked their lives and fortunes to bring forth the new nation. What happened to corrupt their lofty dream? Politics is what happened. An old comedian/philosopher, many decades ago boiled it down to, “Horse ticks, dog ticks and politics, they’re all parasitical.”
There were political battles from the beginning. Jefferson and Adams formed opposing camps, based on opposing philosophes. Hamilton was killed in a duel with Arron Barr. If we think that there is nasty politic today, that was really tough politics. Almost immediately, there were the few inspired individuals who went to Washington to serve the people and there were the many others who went to Washington to serve themselves. So, we end up with the “Swamp Dwellers” who are members of the Washington elite, paying allegiance to themselves and their party, not the best interest of the people.
Then there is the fourth branch of Government, the unelected Federal bureaucracy that believe that they run the Government no matter which party or what individual is in office. The business of every bureaucracy at some point is to keep itself in business. Laws have been passed over the decades that allow the Federal Agencies, to write regulations, define the penalties for not following those regulations, and then enforce those penalties on the people without due process. The agencies take the place of all three branches of the elected Government.
Next month we’ll look at defending our liberties.
