‘We the people” are the ones the Elitist faction’s partisan sham aims to corrupt

Not just our officials

[In response to my WND article today I wrote a reply that may be of interest to my readers here.]

THE COMMENT

This piece is shallow opinions. It never talks about whether Trump can fix USA’s woes. Assuming he can, he is a man who can get our agendas done. So where’s the problem?

He can create jobs, feed families, make America great again. In other words, you don’t want USA to be great again? If you believe he can make USA great again, where’s the problem?

Amnesty? He plans to make the Illegals to go right path, go through the process, is that wrong? He wants the bad apples to be thrown out, or you hope to retain bad apples in USA? Its madness to oppose him for getting the good ones to contribute to USA, for economy, for prosperity and to be Great again.

People sometime get into thinking so complicated, not realizing simple things are required, and “”practical solutions”.  Intellectual discourse, and lofty thinking is no use for day to day life.

MY REPLY

The ‘right-wing’ socialist ideologues Hitler and Mussolini promised people in their countries these same things. And in important respects, they delivered on their promises.  That’s the significance of the now proverbial notion that in Italy Mussolini “made the trains run on time”, which is to say, he improved the organization and efficiency of Italy’s economic life.  Hitler worked with Germany’s leading industrialists to do the same, and the effective war machine Germany created attests to the fact that he succeeded in important respects.

Their success is what made some elements of the elites, in England and the United States, including people in the would-be dynastic lines of the Kennedy and Bush families into admirers of these dictators.  Now Trump comes along and many people, fed up with the conniving treachery of the elitist faction quislings in the GOP, are falling fall into un-American frame of mind that feeds their opportunities for power.

I call it un-American because it’s the frame of mind that forgets the simple fact that, by their oath, the Constitution makes support for constitutional, republican form of government the first duty of those who are supposed to represent and serve us in our Federal and State governments.  They aren’t hired to run our businesses and/or substitute government responsibility and action for the our responsibility as individuals, families, and voluntary associates in faith and other organized communities that aim to uphold justice, liberty and other expressions of our common good as a people.

The United States was founded on premises that reject absolute monarchy, no matter how benevolent it pretends to be, even if it calls itself by some name less odious than tyranny.  More even than at the time of the Founding, we have reason to know that giving unbridled power to anyone, however alluring their promises, however worthy their goals, is apt to end quite, quite literally, in atrocious crimes against humanity, when the latter is understood, in terms of the right, rights and decent liberty with which God endows the title of humanity with meaning.  That is, of course, the way we Americans are supposed to understand it.

Though we often forget it, every citizen of the United States has a duty (in Latin, officium, from which, the words “office” and “official” are derived) to perform as a voting member of the sovereign body of the people.  In this sense, qualified voters hold an office which they come into as one of the appurtenances of the title of humanity conferred upon them by their Creator.  This office requires that they exercise (implement, carry on) the actions and activities, that sustain and perpetuate human nature, i.e., the way of being that accords with the information by which the Creator provides for the existence of humanity.  This is the exercise of right that gives rise to the unalienable rights that just governments are instituted to secure.

The Constitution of the United States was framed in light of this understanding of just government.  Our common and mutual commitment to the exercise of right, as endowed by God, is what defines, and therefore identifies, the citizen body of the people of the United States.  The people we elect to government take the oath they do because it is first and foremost their duty to represent us in that commitment- not to “make the trains run on time”, providing jobs, food, clothing, etc., in equal measure to all our people; but rather to make sure that, with equal justice, every person is secure to undertake the actions that, by nature God requires of them for their own benefit and that of humanity as such.

These are the unalienable rights referred to, and partially listed, in America’s Declaration of Independence.  If we back candidates who violate (i.e., prevent or interfere with the exercise of) these rights, we not only contravene our duty (office), we deny the authority that confers it upon us.  If we do so because they promise us material benefits in exchange for our vote, we are literally agreeing to accept bribes in exchange for dereliction of duty.

Tragically, this bribery is now the sustaining premise of the sham partisan process controlled by the elitist faction. Donald Trump, and all other candidate touted by the elitist faction media, define their campaigns of self-promotion in terms of this bribery.  This is why it makes sense to say that the twin-party sham is inherently, intrinsically corrupt and corrupting.  And the most important target for corruption are not the elected officials we rightly criticize and decry, but we, the people, who have allowed the political process to become a competition in tax financed bribery, leading inevitably to the financial and moral bankruptcy of our nation.

    I do miss your voice in the public political arena! From the list of hopefuls, I am daily eliminating contenders for the presidency in 2016. I so wish your voice could be among them as it was in 2000 when I carried around my Alan Keyes tote bag and waited eagerly to hear anything you added to the debates at that time. I am always reminding people that in 2008, you warned us about the future of this country if Barack Obama was elected. Now, here it is, in all its unimaginable chaos! This post points out what I’ve been saying since 2012 when the American people re-elected him: We have no one to blame but ourselves; particularly, the large percentage of Catholic voters who turned their back on the teachings of the Church and elected a man whose actions challenge our religious freedom. I look forward to reading more of these posts especially as they relate to this election. God bless you and give you what you need to do His Will!

    Hello Dr. Keyes,

    Like many patriots, I admire you, and have followed your illuminating writings and speeches for years. God bless and keep you.

    I just finished reading Ted Cruz’s book, “A Time for Truth.” There is much in the book that resonates with me. Also, I find much in Rand Paul’s stands that seem worthy of support, most especially his unabashed stand on the sanctity of life. Do you see, in these two men, any hope for our beleaguered republic? I sincerely wish, if either (or both) had sufficient foundational principles, they would seek your counsel.

    I share your keen awareness of the corruption in the GOP. Does that corruption assure that, even if one or both of them have the beliefs and character needed, they cannot prevail under the GOP banner?

    Thank you for all your service to our republic. I will greatly appreciate hearing from you.

    In God endowed liberty,
    Mark Statler
