The United States of America is no longer a Republic. The nation so many have died to establish and preserve has become nothing more than a Third World dictatorial oligarchy.(from conservativedailynews.com)
We the People do not matter. If we stand on the documents established by our founders we are labeled “enemies of the state” by both political parties. The Declaration of Independence and Constitution are considered “old and out of date documents”, as is the Holy Bible.
There are some in Congress who actually care about the Constitution and us “commoners” but they are few and far between. And remember what happened to Huelskamp and Amash for having the temerity to represent their constituents instead of the party line.
The political bosses and their lobbyist K Street handlers have such a hold on everything that We the People are merely cannon fodder in the true battle going on in Washington, the battle for who gets the biggest piece of the pie of tyranny.
What really matters to most in government is grabbing a bigger piece of the power pie with no regard at all for those of us who pay the bills. Our national symbol should be a different bird than the bald eagle. It should be the Buzzard of Tyranny, one bird with two wings; Republican and Democrat.
