It's About Statesmen vs. StatesXmen Thing

Dear America,

"If Congress can do whatever 
in their discretion 
can be done by money, 
and will promote the general welfare, 
the Government is no longer 
a limited one possessing enumerated powers, 
but an indefinite one 
subject to particular exceptions."

 James Madison, circa 1792
 With much appreciation to The Patriot Post 

so this morning i left messages for susan collins, rand paul, john mc cain, and once again, tried to leave a voicemail for mitch mc connell; and to my complete disappointment, getting the ear piercing message that his mailbox was still full and not taking messages, all i wanted to do was scream. 

[Mitch's mailbox has been "full" going on three weeks now, but this is an unscientific assumption based upon my mere efforts to get through; for all I know it's been full since mid January, guessing around the twentieth, the day of reckoning that it was... teehee. Mitch is so pathetic, but I digress.]

Now if you read G regularly, you would already know this:
One of my favorite places on the world wide web is The Patriot Post.  It gets the credit for not only the opening thought just this morning, but, also, consistently and diligently leading with inspiring quotes from our founders, compiling commentary from conservative authors far and wide who are fully committed to revealing the revelations and history of our remarkable Republic and its foundations as it pertains to policy and our principles today, and all the while, having the editorial prowess to offer sound opinion upon the day's current events in the name of liberty and justice for all. 
The Patriot Post, birthed the same year as my girl, holds a special place in my heart; there is probably not a day that goes by when this girl doesn't mosey on over to see what bells are ringing.
Getting the Mid-Day Digest and Alexander's Column automatically via email (highly recommended btw) never fail to impress me, and above all, center me -- especially upon days like this...watching the nonsense bellowing from the halls of Congress.

Congress is so afraid to act as true statesmen, we may as well call them statesXmen; it's as if they have all lost sight --  gone completely deaf and dumb, too -- of keeping to the terms and conditions laid down by our founders.  And considering we have just finished celebrating our Independence for the 241st year in a row, how is it possible we have all completely lost our true independence?

In closing what has to be the most historic, international, smack down documented ever, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Samuel Adams....etc...said the following:

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

They had no idea what lay ahead in the days to come, in the days that continued with the Revolutionary War raging across the colonies.  And yet, being men of great courage, they FIRMLY believed in the process and the cause with unwavering faith, knowing their actions were guided by something greater -- that being, DIVINE PROVIDENCE.   

With unshakable faith, they pledged their allegiance to each other no matter what may come -- because they could see it clearly in their mind's eye and they knew it was going to be good!   It was not only going to be good, it was the right thing to do!  It was not only the right thing to do, it was the honorable thing to do!    So much so, they were willing to risk personal loss, personal indebtedness, personal happiness, against all enemies on behalf of the livelihood and general welfare of the common man.

In one short sentence, a sentiment of the highest standard was displayed without fear; with a confidence setting forth a destiny that would change the world, the stage was set with a willingness to do whatever it takes.

Now -- to the day's statesXmen we have come --  shaking in their loafers/stilettos, being completely dizzy proposing one political antic after another, rather than resting upon the principles that have made America great; for the laws and principles, in policy and constitution, were Divined and reasoned and debated and questioned over the many months and years following the signing of our Declaration of Independence of 1776.  

Taking what amounts to be a compilation of the best of the best of the body politic over the centuries --  if not 5000 years  --  America's Rule of Law came about following the study of civilizations through the ages, mainly of Rome, Greece, and Jerusalem.

To say we are a government "of the people, by the people, for the people" is not some slick gimmick.

The thing is -- with respect to what our founders actually set forth -- this idea of centering on WE the PEOPLE required each new generation to make the same pledge to each other, just as our first statesmen, moving forward.  It called for a certain duty -- to God and to Country and to Countrymen and women and children -- that we continue to be an educated and self-reliant PEOPLE, essentially believing in good self-government above all else; for solid self-government has a way of controlling many flaws, right...

What it did NOT call for -- is allowing for some people to get free stuff, free healthcare, free food, free anything, solely on the backs of the hard working, tax paying Americans without end.  If you are receiving any government benefit, it's not the government supplying these needs; these needs are being supplied to you by the generosity of the community in which you live, through government taxation.

It's a rather direct transaction, too, along with the umpteen unseen fees; corporations and small business and individuals are taxed, and from those proceeds government provides for the common defense, supplies three branches of government with all the bureaucrats amassed to support it, and then decides how to distribute the rest.  And the government can't even do that legitimately living within it's means, now twenty trillion dollars in debt!  Does anyone care how much money that is?

This Obamacare fiasco is a case in point.  This never should have happened in the first place; and how absurd is it that today's GOP cannot figure out how to communicate to the American people just how corrupt and ridiculous this legislation truly is, let alone be brave enough to repeal it!

Mitch McConnell doesn't even come close to being in the same room as statesmanship, this is just a given.  But besides that, healthcare is simply not a commodity that the government can recklessly give away by way of the redistribution of wealth, by way of government subsidy, by way of any other way other than through the avenues of the free market, the natural flow of supply and demand, and of course, lest we forget, good SELF-GOVERNMENT.  [translation:  smoke at your own risk, as just one example.]

The founders recognized what kind of government provided the healthiest relationship between those in power and the governed; clearly, it's now all reduced to a prescription that we have fully abused, erasing two hundred years of common sense.  (See also opioid abuse and 1.3 billion dollar fraud)

At the end of the day, it is the entire GOVERNMENT that needs limitations enforced, department sanctioning,  and perhaps, with due cause, of course,  a few statesXmen jailed for charges of crony capitalism, invasive corruption, and fraudulently spending trillions of dollars of the people's money without proper, lawful cause, and without any way possible to reach solvency before an overdose occurs.

and to think, all this because Mitch didn't answer his f%&ING free phone.

Make it a Good Day, G
