One could prudently concede that a government is an indispensable, a public requirement of and for the functional assurance of society. It befalls to those in positions of respect and societal rank to establish said government. The presumption is that these framers of the government are motivated by reason and rationality. It is in the prudent application of such that necessitates a constitution. Noting the intrinsic dangers of a willful government, the constitution is purposely structured to limit the power of their indispensable creation.
Nevertheless, almost immediately after the constitution is affirmed and ratified, the very same duly elected — though sworn to constitutional adherences — abandon their oath so to attain intangible and tangible power. The very same who affirm the constitution willfully succumb to the base nature of self-serving interest. They hypocritically, with arrogant pretension and hubris discharge, pervert the meaningfulness and spirit of constitutional covenants and tenets. These are the licensed, the elected, the appointed, and their acolytes — the crème de la crème of America’s cognoscenti that is responsible for the destruction of this republic.
Their perversion of the literal interpretation of the founding document is expedited by the formation of political parties. Constitution be-damn! The political parties’ sole mission, by any means, including covert extralegal and overt illegal, is the election of their candidate and the implementation of their particular ideology.
The post 1789 constitutional amendments favor the ruse of democratic principles, but in fact, these amendments have abated the essence, the inherent justice, the rational empirical reason of a consequential republic. The implied and expressed powers of the constitution in unanimity with the requirements for checks and balances, the covenants of federalism, separate but equal branches of government, and the extra-constitutional rise of the executive branch significantly diminish the operational merits of our nation’s constitution.
The application of politics, particularly in an election year, is considered by the untainted (voters) as an art form of indulgence. An indulgence rife with askant repute; the politician is at worst a liar and at best a prolific embellisher. Certainly (according to public sentiment), the practice of politicking is a reprehensible art form wherein all practitioners are culpable of aiding and abetting governmental corruption.
Hillary Clinton, the very embodiment of governmental corruption, a liar, a person of disrepute is the electorate’s choice… A truly amazing indicator of why this republic is impaired. The vestiges of the republic have finally evolved into a bureaucratically enabled plutocracy where “the ambiguity of the process” undermines individualism, self-reliance, liberty, and personal freedom.
Regretfully, Mr. Franklin, we were unable to hold on to our republic…
