President Washington noted the vicious animosity between Jefferson, Adams, and Hamilton. Alarmed, he feared that the newly created political parties designed to benefit their members were purposed solely for their party’s electoral success.
George was a prolific harbinger.
The “founders,” utilizing the modus operandi of unsatisfying compromise, created with a required affirmation the U.S. Constitution. It did not take long for the majority (Federalist political party) in 1798 to legislate into law the questionably unconstitutional Alien Sedition Act. The bill, upon Jefferson’s election in 1800, portions were trimmed and muted; however, the remaining parts of the Act in WWI and WWII used to defraud and intern thousands of Americans of German and Japanese descent.
Can any governmental body be trusted to uphold its statutory or constitutional principles? The answer is a resounding no. In a democratically inspired republic, a citizen must premise askance as the rule and 24/7 temperament.
With the benefit of historical review, one could ascertain that the Constitution of 1789, subsequent amendments, rulings, coupled with the bounteous instances of judicial discretion, the weakening of federalism and states’ rights, the courts’ disconcerting interpretations of the Constitution’s meaningfulness has materially changed the essence of the revered document of 1789.
As a result of the last election, while the Republicans held on to the Senate, the Democratic Party earned the majority in the House of Representatives. Divided government has enabled, or I should say, it unleashed a venom of argumentative inner-outermost action in speech and word, culminating in the House ridiculous impeachment of the president.
The Democrats fear the results of the 2020 elections, unable to mediate their hatred of Trump, unwilling to trust in the decision of the electorate, lost in the hyperbole of their pretentious rhetoric, in full view-thinking their arguments are not only persuasive but righteous-these progressives are acting out they’re spiteful dysfunctional eight-grade behavior.
A liberal progressive possess, in varying degrees, the aggregate of misplaced wherewithal, a pretentious disregard of counter perspectives, an arrogance mildly suppressed by one’s conceit, an ignorance of ordinary reality, a psychic need to be right, is an inherent contrarian, an unabashed hypocrite, and has no interest in examining empirical evidence that is not within the accepted narrative.
These are the boys and girls managing the House of Representatives.
