With Independence Day approaching faster than imagined, I’ve spent time reading the Declaration of Independence. As often as I read it, though, one line keeps jumping out at me. Here’s that part that I can’t get rid of:
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.
The men who declared their independence from England understood that governments “shouldn’t be changed for light and transient causes.”
The AOC wing of the Democratic Party won’t hesitate in dissolving their government for light and transient causes if it means acquiring or increasing political power. It’s apparent that the AOC wing of the Democratic Party isn’t just foolish. These Democrats are nuts. These Democrats are power-hungry maniacs who won’t hesitate to do corrupt things if it’ll help them win an extra election.
The truth is that Democrats haven’t thought about principled governance. They’ve only thought about power-filled governance. There’s a reason why Democrats prefer federal governance. It’s the furthest from the people. The people who debated and wrote the Constitution loved government closest to the people. In fact, the Tenth Amendment says “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
AOC Democrats would likely side with the British in the Revolutionary War. AOC Democrats prefer control. They definitely are tyrants. Jerry Nadler is chief amongst the Democrats’ tyrants:
Nadler knows that President Trump broke the law without the special counsel listing a single instance when they found probable cause that President Trump had committed a crime. If a prosecutor can’t get a grand jury to find that there’s probable cause that a crime was committed, then there definitely isn’t proof beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime has been committed.
Finally, the media continues saying that impeachment is a political matter. Alan Dershowitz disagrees, saying that the first threshold impeachment must meet is whether the articles of impeachment constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.
In this instance, Mueller didn’t have his failed investigation obstructed. President Trump cooperated with Mueller’s investigation, handing over 1,400,000 documents, letting his White House Counsel answer questions for more than 30 hours and, generally speaking, cooperating with Mueller. If that sounds like obstruction, then you’ve got a warped sense of obstruction.
