CONGRESS SHOWS ITS ARROGANCE, AGAIN
By Colonel Dan
Congress has once again shown America its true nature is characterized by a flagrant and arrogant contempt for the U.S. Constitution, their sacred oath of office, and the people they are morally obligated to serve.
There is no other explanation or excuse for those members of Congress who voted for the "Election Campaign Finance Bill." In reality, this bill is the "First Amendment Violation Act of 2002" and these politicians know it.
This clearly shows that many in Congress have absolutely no respect for America. It also reveals the very highest degree of arrogant contempt and disregard for the Constitution as well as the oath that every member of Congress swore to uphold and defend that Constitution.
Forget about the other slight-of-hand money provisions of this bill and analyze just this one provision for a moment: Thirty days prior to a primary, no citizen can run any ad criticizing a politician. Sixty days prior to a general election, no citizen can run an ad criticizing a politician or legislation before Congress. If anyone is found in violation of this provision, they face fines and five years in jail!
This has been discussed endlessly over the past year, and it has been establihed beyond reasonable question that Congress is clearly making a law that abridges our constitutional right to freedom of speech, period!
The major media companies are not similarly restricted, however, and therefore they will be the only ones permitted to speak freely at the critical time when most Americans start to take interest in the people and issues of the election.
It is an established fact that most Americans don't pay any attention to even a major campaign until about three weeks or less prior to Election Day. Another well-known fact is that the major media in this country are controlled by socialistically leaning Liberals. It is also a known fact that the majority of everyday citizens in this country--those that are restricted from freely speaking their mind under this bill--are far more Conservative than the mainstream press. Therefore, this bill seeks to muzzle the majority and allows the Liberal press to have free rein during those last two crucial months prior to an election.
Such a situation tremendously enhances the power of a press that, for the most part, supports only the most socialistic politicians around. On the other hand, it also significantly enhances the need for and role played by such publications as the Sierra Times, which is one of the free voices of the press permitted to speak within the sixty-day limit, at least for now.
If the majority of people are essentially prohibited from speaking against a politician, how can anyone effectively challenge an incumbent? They can't. This bill then could also rightfully be named the "Incumbent Protection Act of 2002," as it has been accurately characterized.
Without conjecture, the bill is the most flagrant constitutional violation by Congress in years. Any politician who voted for it has proven himself to be intent on undermining the very foundation of the United States.
Congressional supporters of the "Campaign Finance Reform Bill" are devoid of conscience and obviously view themselves as more important than the very foundation of our country. These politicians care nothing for the most basic of American principles or for the people who put the politicians in power. In fact, it is those very people who voted for the politicians and whom the latter are morally obligated to serve that the politicians seek to severely muzzle--after the voters have given them political power, that is.
The Bill of Rights has once again been violated and the lines clearly drawn, my friends. By definition, the supporters of this bill, whether it finally becomes law or not, are the adversaries of our most basic constitutional freedom and are America's modern day domestic enemies.
Congress would do well to keep in mind that millions of us have also sworn an oath to uphold the U.S, Constitution, and we take our oath more seriously than those in Congress who support the travesty represented by the "Campaign Finance Reform Bill. Our oath is to defend the Constitution, not to uphold corrupt politicians who are trying to muzzle American citizens and steal the last vestiges of the freedom which sets America apart from the rest of the world.
If this bill becomes law, we have a moral obligation to right that wrong, defy their treachery, reaffirm the primacy of our Constitution, and vote out of office the politicians who supported the bill.
Even if the bill does not eventually become law, we still have a moral obligation to oust those who voted for it, for they have proven beyond doubt that they are untrustworthy, arrogant elitists who care nothing for the country or the citizens they are morally bound to serve. They care only for themselves and the power they seek to retain in virtual perpetuity. I, for one, am sick of such violations that go unchallenged and unpunished.
Keep in mind, one of the acts of King George III of England in the eighteenth century was to jail American colonists for pamphleteering--speaking their mind against the politicians of that day by publishing political pamphlets. Americans back them had the guts to tell him to go to hell. Should we do less with the collection of modern day elitist politicians who sit on what they consider their personal thrones in Washington, D.C.? I think not.
God Almighty himself knows the intensity of the love I have for country is matched only by the intensity of the disgust I have for politicians.
