Consider the following:
“To the evil of monarchy we have added that of hereditary succession; and as the first is a degradation and lessening of ourselves, so the second, claimed as a matter of right, is an insult and imposition on posterity. For all men being originally equals, no one by birth could have a right to set up his own family in perpetual preference to all others for ever, and tho’ himself might deserve some decent degree of honours of his contemporaries, yet his descendants might be far too unworthy to inherit them. One of the strongest natural proofs of the folly of hereditary right in Kings, is that nature disapproves it, otherwise she would not so frequently turn it into ridicule, by giving mankind an ASS FOR A LION.” (Common Sense, T Paine.)
Hereditary succession. Is that not what we are experiencing in the United States of America right now? One Bush. One Clinton. One Bush. One Obama. One Clinton. One Jebbie Bush…and on and on and on. The idiots on the left are actually clamoring for Sasquatch Obama to run for president, as surreal as that sounds. In the state of Masshole, we see the continuing line of Kennedy’s, with their wading pool deep gene pool, getting elected time and again, turning out politicians that in the words of The Bard, are more suited for turning good food into shit. Really, RFK Jr? A drunken drugged out greenie bum? Caroline, you know, you know Kennedy? In Georgia, another Carter raised its ugly head. And even worse, subhumans on the Left actually want Chelsea Clinton to run for office whose only claim to fame is…nothing really. Well, other than giving birth to a child after the union of two crime families that is. God Help the Republic.
Note Paine’s words here: “a degradation and lessening of ourselves…” Have we not seen this time and time again with it getting worse with each passing president? Bush 41 went fishing and lived in the house that the Bush’s owned in Kennebunkport. Clinton took a few vacations but nothing too out of the ordinary for he was too busy nailing anything with a skirt on it, in the White House, as was Killary. Bush 43 took his vacations at his ranch in Crawford wherein he could hold meetings, have foreign dignitaries come it, and yet allow much of his Secret Service detail to spend time with their families. In come the Grifters from Chicago, or Hawaii, who knows, but their lavish lifestyle, their awesome eats, their children getting not only the finest education money can buy (in a private school-Obama himself is against school vouchers) but also the finest eats while America’s kids eat slop not fit for a pig, and best of all, their lavish and expensive vacations.
It is not enough for the Obamas to take a vacation themselves to say, Spain. That could be understandable but they take the mommy-in-law, Obama’s handler Valerie Jarrett, and assorted friends, along with a massive entourage, that we pay for. The Little People. Us Commoners. Consider the vacation to Barry’s homeland of Africa. Tens of millions of dollars spent. A naval fleet diverted to provide cover “just in case.” But hey, they DID drop that expensive safari and saved us about twenty thousand bucks or so. Yet in all of this, the Obamas have yet to go to Chicago for a vacation, in their mansion, preferring to fly Air Force One, at 182K an hour, to a lavish resort in Hawaii. And why not, we’re paying for it.
Moreover, it should be noted: “no one by birth could have a right to set up his own family in perpetual preference to all others for ever.” Note that many in Congress do just this. Nancy Pelosi used the US Air Force like a private taxi service, complete with free food and booze, and not just for her but for her family members! MILCON Feinswine used her connections to route military contracts (MILCON) to her husband’s three companies and received a slap on the wrist…after making a few million bucks. They have done insider trading, until that law was passed, and if you think that they have stopped, the Gunny has a bridge for sale. Indeed, the friends of the elite, i.e., Al Sharpton, can rack up $4.5 MILLION DOLLARS in back taxes and go unpunished while elitist enabler Lois Lerner and the Infernal Robbery Service go after the commoners who do not have powerful top cover. Rest assured, if our Founding Fathers were alive today, to see the perks and bennies that Congress and the President have awarded themselves, they’d be picking up weapons and cussing a blue streak.
In closing, is there anyone out there that can defend the excesses of the Congress? The President? Or any other politician for that matter? They who WERE once servants of the public now consider the public as THEIR servants. Indeed, many politicians no longer hold townhalls because they knew they are fucking things up and don’t want to hear it from their constituents and neither do they care to…except at election time! How many freedoms do we have to sacrifice for the elites? How much of our paychecks do we have to surrender, by threat of force, so that the elites in Congress can buy Obamafones for their useless food eaters and thus garner their votes? How much longer do we have to watch elites like Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame lie and get away with it? For Obama to tell bold-faced lies and get away with it? Or to give his sympathy for dead cops that HE got killed, from the 13th tee? For politicians like Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the Country Club RINOs to ignore the will of the very people who put them in office to fix the very things that they have ALL fucked up?
If Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense,” inspired the first American Revolution, then let it inspire the Second American Revolution, because there are many wrongs that need to be righted. Dare any liberal deny that? The Gunny does not think so
