For decades our government only grew no matter how we voted. We took the scraps of trash tax cuts as major wins. And that was about it, folks. The cost of living went up. The good jobs got handed to the Chinese. And we spent 60 years talking about the size of government without cutting a penny or an inch. People notice all talk and no action.
The FBI and DoJ have weighed the GOP in the balance and find it lacking. They have made the bet that it is all bark and no bite. After all, the GOP never held the IRS accountable for molesting their constituents. No one got prosecuted. No serious investigation took place. The GOP never got to the bottom of Benghazi. No one got prosecuted. No serious investigation took place. General ‘never won a war’ LGBT activist Milley never got held accountable for telling the Chicoms he would warn them first if an order came from the president against them. The Clintons never got investigated for the endless corruption they have been engaged in. Pay for play, wiping classified information under subpoena, selling pardons. That’s not including the mention of the relationship Bill had with Epstein and his bevy of underage sex slaves.
The FBI failed to take out the multiple mass shooters they were warned of from Vegas to Orlando. They just couldn’t bother to pay them a visit. But they have time to raid Trump over some documents the national archives wants. They have made the calculation that the people who talk all day about their hate of government yet never lift a finger to do anything about it are a joke. I’ve made that same calculation. Times like this call for serious reforms and action if not outright abolition. What is the GOP prepared to do other than have useless committees that will be ignored?
This has metastasized on their feckless watch for decades. They are equally to blame if not a little more. For decades they told their voters the noble endeavor was private commerce and not public service. They turned their voters off to being in government at all. Then they didn’t shrink a dot or tittle of it as the enemy took control of everything. The market turned out to be a degenerate cesspool of cronies who live off this machine like parasites while they push sex changes on kids and try to get their female employees to abort their offspring.
This country is sick from top to bottom. Hunter Biden is free to smoke his crack, sleep with his whores, and pimp his father out for deals from corrupt countries to line his own pockets. The FBI activates for that? Nah. They activate for some documents the national archives claim they don’t have and send 30 men to open a safe that had nothing in it, according to Eric Trump.
It is time to stop with the theoretical nonsense from right-wing economists and political thinkers. We need effective government. We need good government. We need a government that serves the people. We need people to be held accountable. We don’t need any more lectures about political philosophy. It’s time to do what hasn’t been done for 60 years. Stop funding parts of the government and let their employees have to go off into the sunset. That would show more spine and be more action than the decades of worthless political theory that has been spewed.
Lastly, Trump is a hero. He is an American who deserves to long be remembered after he dies. And Never Trump can go straight to hades for being the open enablers of this rot that the feckless GOP has silently enabled. I want action and I want results. And most of all, I want accountability. More of the same isn’t cutting it. We are in this state because the balances have been weighted for a long time and it has been well known what those weights are. And that is the only reason.Published in
