Ends and Means and Which Justifies Which

 

There are many phrases about this subject such as, “The ends do not justify the means,” and other variations on the subject. The real problem is that government agencies often conduct their business as if the ends justify their means. There actually is a logical reason for why their operations appear as such. The government agencies are handed ends and told to write regulations to achieve what the Congressional legislation defined, thus the bureaucrats are charged to build the means to achieve defined ends. This means that their job description is to make means which are justified by the ends where the ends are the Congressional legislative work which is often vague and filled with generalizations and often touchy-feely terminology which only half defines the intended ends; they often lack conclusions and only provide broad suggestions. Then such sketchy definitions of what the Congress actually may have desired is left for the bureaucrats to determine the final ends which they believe the Congress actually desired. As is often the case, many different agencies and committees within each agency are given the legislation and told to work on a section and flesh out the Congressional intentions as best as they are able to interpret and make their work also fit well with the entirety of the legislation. This is why the government bureaucracy is often accused, rightfully, of using the ends to justify their means or writing regulations in order to attempt and fulfill their interpretation of the meaning of Congressional legislation which has been signed into law. This also has led to the definition of these agencies and their bureaucracy as being the “Deep State” and now being portrayed as the monster fighting against President Trump and his preferred ends.

 

Perhaps this would be a good time to try to define “Deep State” and what makes up this entity and how it came into being and other items which might be helpful. The first thing which needs to be told is under which party’s leadership the “Deep State” was predominantly established. This is easy to determine simply by looking at the history of the last century. During that time, there have been definitive prerogatives which applied to the two parties. The Republicans have mostly enlarged the military while cutting back on the rest of the government often using hiring freezes for all but the military and some of the research and development which would often include NASA, an area of government which has rarely ever received more than one percent of the total budget while being tasked with some of the most taxing and exacting demands. The Democrats have often worked at building support functions such as welfare, Social Security, social spending and placing taxes and regulations on industry to play to their particular special interests such as ecological lobby, workers’ rights and similar items. Probably the best means would be to quote from the Democrat Party 2016 Platform where we find the following; Workers Share in Near-Record Corporate Profits, Reining in Wall Street and Fixing our Financial System, Making the Wealthy Pay Their Fair Share of Taxes, Ending Systemic Racism, Guaranteeing Every Minority or Special Interest’s Rights, Protecting Voting Rights, Securing Environmental and Climate Justice, Making Debt-Free College a Reality, Guaranteeing Universal Preschool, Securing Universal Health Care, Securing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice, Preventing Gun Violence, Support Global Economy and Institutions and lastly Strengthening Management of Federal Government. Needless to say, for fairness we will also link to the Republican Party 2016 Platform. They are equally incriminating, especially when proving a point.

 

Back to our discussion, the Democrats more often are the party which hires the largest numbers of new government workers, especially in and around Washington D.C. This has led to the government agencies being predominantly liberal bordering on leftist. These are the people who make up the bureaucracy and who slowly have worked their way higher and higher to the point where they are now responsible for all of the hiring and they hire people of like minds. Unfortunately, nepotism is not exactly discouraged in reality though it is against most departmental hiring policy, but when your child is seeking a job, what could give them better job security than a job which after successful completion of a year in service you become almost unfireable. This is what faces each administration which wished to cut the size of the government, the only method is to freeze hiring. On the other side, monitoring the regulatory jungle from growing one is pretty much on their own. Trump has issued an Executive Order that for every new regulation an agency issues, they must retire two regulations. Still, there are so many regulations, some which have been found to be completely opposing one another. There are regulations which should have been repealed ages ago and with so many regulations, almost everybody has crossed the line of some regulation before noon providing you left the house. The reality is the government agencies are set up to operate filling in the means which result, if we are fortunate, producing the ends the Congress passed and the President signed into law.

 

Now we can look at some recent actions which have been in the News, actually has been the focus of the news almost to the point of obsession. The question we should be asking is whether the people assigned to enforce the laws have been using means to justify the proposed ends or using the means to lead to non-preconceived ends. Justice is supposed to be taking the evidence and seeing where it leads and not determining where the evidence is desired to lead and then fitting the evidence to reach that end. The Mueller investigation is exactly the opposite of what an investigation is supposed to be. As far as all appearances, the Mueller investigation has been set on the campaign and anything else necessary to find an impeachable offence which can be leveled at President Trump. He was to initially look into potential Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. The investigation is presumably heading towards its conclusion. The one major item left is the presumed discussion between Mueller and President Trump, providing President Trump proves foolish enough to provide Mueller with such a present.

 

Mueller Shooting Questions at President Trump

Mueller Shooting Questions at President Trump

 

United States District Judge T.S. Ellis III has been charged to preside over the special counsel’s criminal case against Paul Manafort. Friday, Judge Ellis accused the Mueller team of “lying” about the scope of its investigation; something which has been a bone of contention chewed on by many a commentator. He asked for a copy of the unredacted “scope memo” penned by Rod Rosenstein, something a far cry from what was provided Congress. From here, we can only go into conjecture also not having an unredacted version of the memo. By everything we have witnessed, Rod Rosenstein, the Undersecretary of Justice and number two man in the Justice Department, pretty much gave Mueller a free hunting certificate to go wherever was required to nail President Trump to the wall with impeachment as the trophy. He used this to take the evidence piled up, often illegally, by researched by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and, believe it or not, Robert Mueller. Much of what the Mueller probe has been targeting has been at President Trump’s friends and campaign personnel and apparently specifically targeting two people to get dirt on President Trump. The initial work was actually performed under President Obama with the FBI using the Russian dossier on Donald Trump produced by Christopher Steele through intermediaries for the Hillary Clinton campaign to receive a FISA warrant to wiretap Carter Page. This led to their finding reason to bring preliminary charges against him which they used to parlay into his turning evidence against Paul Manafort. This brought charges against Paul Manafort for purposes totally unrelated to the Russian collusion investigation and for something performed years before he was even part of the Trump campaign. This was hoped to have him turn over again President Trump but he decided that he would prefer to go down rather than provide what he would probably classify as lies in order to snare the President.

 

All of these moves have been the ends justify the means. The entirety of this investigation has smelled of throwing out the rules and just going for the prize at the end of the road. The charges they brought against Manafort resulted equally from the testimony of Page and investigations into Manafort by Mueller when he was President Obama’s FBI Director. Now he got to finish what he started as the Special Prosecutor with all the advantages of secrecy and the ability to bring charges which probably would never have gotten past a knowledgeable Grand Jury or passed a normal legal sniff test. These were the nature of the trap he set and pegged Manafort with while receiving an assist from Page in order to escape the trap he was caught in resulting from an illegally procured FISA warrant. There are so many ends justifying the means in this train all in an effort to initially injure candidate Trump in order to assist the Hillary campaign and after the election to everything changed to removing President Trump in order to save the nation. If they were really successful, they might even get the entire election thrown out as having been interfered with by the Russians and give Hillary and the Democrats a second chance in a special election. These people have been watching far too many Hollywood movies.

 

The interesting thing will be the coming Manafort trial with United States District Judge T.S. Ellis III presiding. He has initially shown a good deal of skepticism with his demand for an unredacted copy of the Undersecretary of Justice Rod Rosenstein “scope memo” which gave the extreme and apparently unlimited latitude which the investigation has taken. We might call the coming trial as deciding in this day and age, even when the reasons are presumably so obviously important to the safety of the nation and ensuring the perceived person deserving to be elected wins or otherwise gets a do-over, do such ends justify the means which have been gone to. Should the decision be that Manaford’s indictment was politically motivated and came from evidence which was beyond the scope of the investigation and thus inadmissible, then we will reach another question, will anybody high enough in this entire brouhaha actually be called to answer for all the illegal attacking of President Trump and his friends and campaign personnel? How high will the responsibilities be taken, Comey? Rosenstein? McCabe? Mueller? Hillary? Or even President Obama? Why would we include President Obama? Mainly because these investigations began under his watch and with former FBI Director Mueller and continued through his replacement, former FBI Director Comey, which would imply that Comey was instructed to continue Mueller’s initial investigation. We believe that once people rise to a certain level, they become virtually unsusceptible to legal indictment provided they quietly retire.

No, We Have Not Lost Our Trust in the FBI or America, Yet

 

Representative Adam Schiff suggested Sunday, talking to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, that the GOP-crafted memo released Friday could lead to an Oklahoma City-style bombing because people will have lost trust in the FBI. His incredulous claim was if one witnesses their neighbor buying excessive amounts of fertilizer, yet has no lawn, they would hesitate from calling this in to the FBI out of fear that the Congress would release their name for political reasons making you a target. Fear tactics, we have always loved it when any political argument falls to straight fear tactics, the last argument of the scoundrel. The Democrats are running around pretending that the Constitutional release of information to the people by the Congress and approved by the President has irreparably harmed the safety of the nation. We find this almost amusing after the Democrats slow leaking of information from the very same FBI and DOJ investigations throughout the campaign and usage of these agencies’ highest officials to massage and manipulate information to allow Hillary Clinton avoid prosecution for treasonous acts of playing fast and loose with secret, Top Secret and even higher classified letters, memos and investigative reports on her “personal mail server” which she used to avoid any ability for any investigation to look into her actions while she was Secretary of State and from which she lost or misplaced many thousands of e-mails, many of which were found on other personal computers and communications equipment such as Anthony Weiner’s notebook which he shared with his wife, Huma Abedin, long time Hillary confidant and close friend as well as appointed to a high position aiding Ms. Clinton as Secretary of State. Their complaining falls on deaf ears after the interference of Attorney General, Loretta E. Lynch, in the investigation on Hillary Clinton’s behalf after her meeting serendipitously with former President William Jefferson Clinton on his private jet on the tarmac of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, on June 26, 2016, while the FBI investigation concerning Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server was still underway.

 

The leaks and misinformation and secretive meetings surrounding the questionable lack of calling for an indictment of Hillary Clinton which astonished many observers even including some Democrats and was but half of the story. The leaks concerning the Russia probe into their interference presumably to throw the election to Donald Trump were intentionally damaging and completely illegal, not legal and above board as was this document release. The near constant dribs and drabs of presumably damning information proving coercion and influence of the election by the Russian government presumably at the behest of Donald Trump continued with new updates coming out weekly, then twice weekly and by election week the revelations were almost twice daily. Fortunately, most of the leaks were unlikely to cause any damage to the Trump campaign, as they were either inconsequential or concerned items which threw more doubt on Hillary than they did Donald Trump. What has been learned since the election through reckless leaking of information by largely Democrat and Hillary and Bill Clinton functionaries has raised doubts about Hillary Clinton and her time as Secretary of State, her and Bill’s parts in what appeared to be a donate to their charity in order to influence Hillary as Secretary of State and gain influence on President Obama. And as far as the collusion with the Russians, that now appears to have been part of the Hillary Clinton campaign as well as funded and arrange by the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. There is the Steele dossier arranged by the investigative agency ‎Fusion GPS who were hired to dig up dirt about Donald Trump and his dealings with the Russians and their undo influence over Donald Trump concerning questionable actions which the Russians could hold over him. The entire mess was all too contrived and manipulated to be believable and had little if any influence on the election except to hurt Hillary Clinton and to bankrupt the Democrat National Committee as well as Hillary’s campaign. In the end, all these nefarious efforts are coming home to roost and perhaps in the end Hillary Clinton will get what so many believe she deserves, an orange pantsuit, actually more of a jumpsuit, and some nice accommodations at a Club Fed facility for the politically connected.

 

Club Fed or Club Med?

Club Fed or Club Med?

 

As far as Americans losing faith in the FBI or in America herself, not even close. Americans, especially after the recent State of the Union Address given by President Trump, are more invigorated and have more faith in the possibilities for their futures than any time in the past decade; well, unless they are a Democrat in the Congress who were obviously very dour and dejected. But there are some things being circulated in some circles which are anything but true. The first is that President Trump now has the Republican Party backing him. A Republican source has stated, “Mitt becoming Senator Mitt Romney and chairman of the NRSC elevates Trump’s biggest intra-party foe. This is not the outcome Trump wanted when he encouraged Hatch to run again.” He also noted that it would elevate Romney’s stature as an anti-Trump colleague within the party. Why would a Party presumably now in line with the President be elevating a credible alternate candidate into a position from which he could challenge Donald Trump in the next election primaries? The answer is obvious, the elite in the Republican Party still desire replacing Donald Trump as soon as the opportunity presents itself. The question then becomes, what if these elites succeed and manage to place Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or any of their other favorite sons onto the ticket in the 2020 elections?

 

The result of such a coup in the Republican Party will be a complete turn around from the election of President Trump. One item which has not been discussed very much is why was the media so assured that Hillary Clinton would win and why was the Clinton campaign nonchalant about even bothering to campaign in places such as Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the remainder of the so-called battleground states and instead spent all her time basking away before cooing crowds in New York and California where she was guaranteed large adoring crowds and easy victories. The campaigning answer is she was attempting to appear confident and as a winner with the adoring crowds arranged for her and as far as also the media, the fix was in, sufficient votes had been fixed where necessary and Hillary Clinton had the necessary votes to defeat Donald Trump assuming he got the votes they believed he deserved. Do not believe that Donald Trump lost the popular vote, at least not the actual popular vote, as he had to win and win so big that all their vote stealing and other cheats were not sufficient to prevent his victory. As far as malfeasance and mishandling of vote tallies, all one need do is research the accusations and actual findings which are always minimized by the guilty party and as very seldom does an election turn out so close that there results challenges and hand counts which often have varying results on each recount. The Bush-Gore Florida fiasco was a perfect example of the mess that comes when the actual votes are to be tallied and even then, there are games played such as divining who someone actually desired voting for when there was no vote in the Presidential boxes and other shenanigans. It is an unfortunate thing when a nation gets to the point where the omnipresent main parties have so rigged the election games that they remain relatively unchallenged and can even alter the results of elections.

 

So, what will happen should the Republican Party use the primaries and the alignment of the Super Delegates and other contrivances in order to remove Donald Trump and replace him with a mainstream Republican in good standing with the progressive elites who believe it is their fishbowl and they can control who is permitted to play in it? The people who elected Donald Trump will become disenchanted and very likely remain home and some may even decide that the Democrat Party candidate is less offensive than the candidate the Republican elite selected. Such an eventuality will prove to be an extreme disaster for the United States as should the Democrat Party ever get sufficient power in both the Congress and holding the White House and have sufficient State governments to pass an amendment to the Constitution despite any opposition, then we can expect some dire changes to occur. They might do away with the Electoral College and replace it with a straight popular vote for the electing of a President. People claim that such changes to the Constitution are impossible yet back in 1913 the Progressives won sufficient power throughout the nation that they changed how Senators were chosen making it a popular vote instead of allowing the State legislatures or Governors or some combination where each State chose how to select their Senator with the Amendment XVII. This made the Senate a smaller version of the House of Representatives and permitted the Federal Government to literally walk all over the States Rights, which had been protected through their selection of Senators to represent each state. The Constitution initially made the two houses of Congress for two entirely separate duties. The House of Representatives was to be the people’s house and the Senate was to be the States representatives. The Seventeenth Amendment ended that and turned the Senate into simply another popular people’s representative leaving the states powerless to prevent the Federal Government from usurping their power. It was the year 1913 with the two presumably ratified Amendments, numbers XVI and XVII, the income tax power for the Federal Government, as before 1913 there was no direct Federal Tax on the people, and the direct electing of Senators. Now the Federal Government had complete power over the individual states, began usurping all power to Washington D.C., and used the income tax in order to bring all finances to Washington D.C. This was the point where the Deep State began to take shape and it would take the repeal of the two Amendments, Sixteen and Seventeen, to bring sanity back to the government and permit the states some semblance of their power back with which they would hopefully whittle the size of the Federal Government back down to where it was almost harmless.

 

Another result if the Republicans deserted their base by replacing Donald Trump on the ticket by whatever means, no matter how proper and natural such was performed, this would lead to a Democrat taking the White House. With the now seeming complete power which has been consolidated in the Presidency, initially by every President since Washington but rapidly accelerated by President George W. Bush after 9-11 and then by President Obama to get all of Obamacare into law and amended as he saw necessary; the Royal Presidency has been furthered by Donald Trump in order to undo much of the illegal items done by fiat by President Obama. President Trump has simply validated much of the powers usurped by the former Presidents and possibly even added to them himself. The Presidency has been granted power to accomplish desired goals almost through pure will of the individual holding the office. Such power is defined as accomplishing the desired goals by fiat all but challenging the Congress to stop the President. The problem there is the Congress had grown lazy and no longer even wields the powers which remain within their purview. No longer does the Congress write the laws, they simply define that which they desire, the President signs off on such legislation, and then the departments are assigned their sections of the legislation to write the particulars, which are the regulations. These regulations have replaced what used to be laws. Congress used to define the goals and the means for accomplishing such goals and every specific step required. Now it is the Deep State that spells out the specifics after Congress has given them a general gist of their ideas. No longer are the people’s representatives responsible for the enacted implementation of the laws and thus they do not even know what their legislation has wrought. They will campaign using glorious sounding words telling about the legislation and what it is designed to accomplish when they have no idea what it actually will accomplish because they did not write how the legislations was to be implemented. This is the Deep State which President Trump desires unraveling such that the government can be returned to the people. President Trump does not agree with the lazy Congress and desired making the legislators actually write the codes of each piece of legislation and not passing off to unelected bureaucrats to enact the often-onerous regulations which supposedly derive from the Congressional direction in each piece of legislation. The Republican Party along with their allies in the Democrat Party do not desire that Congress actually work at their jobs as they see their jobs as being the social calendar and the reelection efforts. It is uncertain which they place first. The members of Congress, for the most part, simply desire to pass high-sounding legislation and not get their hands dirty working out the minutia. They leave that tedium to the Deep State of bureaucrats who often decide how much control they can grab and claim it fits the spirit of the legislation. This is the evil of the Deep State. This is something the progressives have wrought and the sad truth is that both parties are run by progressives. They love big government because that permits them to have control of the people and for the most part the people are too busy simply trying to survive the mess made by the Deep State to actually realize they are being had. The reason that even the Republicans desire the end to President Donald Trump is simple, he is not one of them and he is actually working for the people, the unwashed masses with whom the powerful in Washington D.C. prefer not to have to deal with. That is the sad truth and once President Trump leaves office, that may be the beginning of the end of the United States of America and, if we be permitted to slightly alter a great quote from Abraham Lincoln, this will be the end of the “Government of the people, by the people, for the people,” shall now perish from the Earth. We changed one letter of one word, we changed a ‘t’ to a ‘w’ making ‘not; into ‘now’ and that makes all the difference.

A Walking Wrecking Ball and the Media

 

The media is completely flummoxed as to what to do about the situation they find the United States to be in currently. They simply are finding the situation improbable, intolerable even, as despite their reporting of all the sins and indiscretions of the President, he is still walking free laying waste to the left at every turn. Their walk through the mystery tour started with the Republican primaries and the first Republican debate. The media scorned and cast him as uncouth, foul mouthed, disrespectful and unworthy of the office of the President. Still, the main label of the night was “Low Energy Jeb,” a name that was echoed by Jeb Bush’s performance. Within the week, Jeb Bush was out of the race. The media continued to castigate him at every opportunity and Donald Trump used their coverage to continue to rename his opponents with the names Trump gave them. There was Little Marco, Lyin’ Ted, 1 for 38 Kasich and whatever caught the attention when repeated by the media. Of course, the media repeated these names as they would hurt Republicans and Donald Trump counted on that. Then on the campaign, he used Lyin Hillary and Crooked Hillary and similar names and used Twitter to spread his campaign. The media tried to make Trump appear to be the one to lose the election big time to depress his voters. If anything, it resulted in suppressing the Hillary Clinton voters. Whatever the media effect, it resulted in the one result they could not understand or even contemplate, President Donald Trump. Not only had their misrepresenting the news and attempts at manipulating the entire campaign season backfired and placed a Republican in the White House, it had placed the man they hated most, the man they loathed and the most uncouth of the candidates according to everything they had claimed. Now they are left dealing with what they wrought.

 

Now the media is facing an ever worse case scenario. Their efforts to paint Donald Trump as corrupt and Russians under the direction of Vladimir Putin interfering with the election assisting Trump being elected is blowing up in their faces. Currently it is starting to appear as if the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice are being dragged down as interfering with the election and working with the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee in efforts to pin Trump and Russia into a frame over some form of conspiracy. But it gets worse for the media as they are beginning to be linked and made complicit in slanting their reporting to assist these efforts. Everything that Donald Trump touches results in some new and additional defeat for the media and the Democrats and a fair number of the Republican establishment. The one thing which appears to be most valid is that wherever Trump treads, the establishment trembles. It matters little which establishment, the Bushes, the Clintons, the Never-Trump Republicans, the elites of the Democrat and Republican Parties, the elite media and now we are on the verge of watching the downfall of the Deep State. What will inevitably be referred to as Memogate, everything has to be something-gate since Watergate, we are going to likely witness an ever-widening conspiracy which will also include the State Department and, from there, who knows where it is going to lead. There are already claims that President Obama may also be drawn into the dragnet being cast and harvesting those who combined to attempt and actually manipulate the election for Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump. But there will be some repercussions which will be of potential for great service for the American people if President Trump can manage to accomplish changing one law which has fed the size of government allowing it to become cumbersome and inefficient.

 

President Trump Rumbling with the Deep State

President Trump Rumbling with the Deep State

 

There are rumors, welcome rumors, that President Trump would like to allow for supervisors within the government to be able to give raises on merit while being permitted to cut those whose performance is less than acceptable. Currently, once a Civil Service employee attains permanent status, they become immune to being fired. Another problem in the Federal Government is nepotism. Parents get their children hired onto the government payroll, often in their same department where they are friends and even the supervisor of their newly hired child’s boss which assures they will reach the point after which they become permanent and no longer able to be fired. Needless to point out, when the employees reach permanent status they are no longer required to provide any real service or performance. This leads to the government often needing to hire two, three, four or even more people to produce the work which in the real world, as the non-government employment is referred, would require one efficient and capable worker. This is part of what has led to the rumors and theories as to why the government is so inefficient and bloated with so many workers who accomplish little to nothing, or at least far less than a company outside the government accomplishes with less than half the employees. Trump wants to end the Civil Service immunity to being terminated and return the government to a situation where the workers are held responsible for their own performance. The question will be what to do when you have supervisors protecting lower level supervisors who protect all their employees. There is but one means by which President Trump will ever be capable of reigning in the Deep State, a complete hiring freeze with outside performance reviews deciding which workers are not performing up to a normal expected level. Nothing short of being put on a forced diet can take the bloated monster ensconced in Washington D.C., West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia and across the fruited plains and along the shores and purple mountains majesty and every other nick, cranny and corner of the United States down to something manageable or reasonable facsimile thereof.

 

President Trump has chosen his enemies well and they have decided to take up that role with great zest and enthusiasm, especially the media thus far. Expect the Deep State to work to foil every last piece of the President’s agenda. Between the Democrat Party deciding that they will vote against everything acting as total obstructionists bringing the government to a standstill until they get in power again and the Never-Trump Republicans such as Flake and McCain and company, President Trump may need to wait until after the 2018 midterm elections and hope that he breaks with all traditions and comes away with over sixty Senators who are willing to support his agenda and a majority retained in the House of Representatives. Without this advantage, President Trump will have great difficulty in getting his agenda past the Congress. What will probably frustrate the liberal and leftist media and the Democrats along with the Never-Trump Republicans is that the decision as to whether President Trump manages to get much if not all of his agenda through the Congress and enacted and wins his fight against the Deep State will not fall to any of them but to the American People. The midterm election will be the first step followed by whether or not President Trump is reelected along with the makeup of the Congress and then the final midterm election which would be his final chance.

 

There is one last item which should be discussed briefly and we will try to be succinct. The Democrats have decided some time back that they are the sole people who can be trusted with the power to decide the national agenda. They will do everything within their power to prevent President Trump from accomplishing his agenda. They also are going to fight to attempt on retaining as much of President Obama’s accomplishments as they are able. They will obstruct voting with complete discipline acting as a single negative vote in both houses attempting to utilize the filibuster to end everything from passing the Senate. This is why President Trump will require a sixty vote super majority to get his policies passed through the Senate. The Democrat Party has adopted the policy approach which has been accepted by leftists throughout history very often right before they seize complete power and end elections or only hold show elections assuring they have fixed them such that they appear to have the flavor of fairness but are rigged to allow only Democrat Party rule. The Democrat Party has decided that they will be the only party permitted to decide policy, decide what requires financing, who is permitted to be elected to Congress and the White House, what is considered a fair election, and that they be permitted to go to whatever extent is required such that they retain their majorities and continue to hold the White House. They have reached the end of their rope and are no longer going to play fair. Actually, they have decided they are no longer going to play at all. We wish our American friends of all walks of life luck with holding on to the greatest governance ever devised by man. It has been quite saddening to watch as the great system has faltered and sputtered until it reached this point. We saw its first step when the Democrat and Republican opponents to our run for office both gave paid members of their campaigns to work to prevent us getting any traction which worked as we received 20% against the victor’s 42.2% and the other defeated candidate at 36.9%. What we never understood is how they could spend five million dollars in order to get a job which paid $275,000.00 a year for two years. At least we spent under $35,000.00 so at least had we won we would have shown a profit. But that is where politics has reached in America, spending five million dollars for five hundred fifty thousand in salary, which should make everybody pause as ask what is going on.
