Every single day when I turn on the news, I am appalled and shocked beyond belief at the flagrant lawlessness of our elected officials. For some reason, they absolutely do not believe they are held to the same lawful standards as you or I. I'll take it a step further and say that they do not feel compelled to obey the laws that they legislate.
No one can tell me that there isn't a double standard here. I thought that Congress could not pass laws that they were exempt from. Here is a perfect example of what I mean in an article published by Forbes.
"When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") was being debated, proponents were accused of saddling Americans with inferior and expensive health care while keeping generous coverage for themselves at taxpayer expense. To rebut that allegation and build confidence in the bill, a provision was added mandating that members of Congress – and their staff members – get their coverage through the new exchange system the bill set up. Now that the time to sign up for exchange coverage is nearing, a Democratic member, Rep. John Larson (D., Conn.), is saying that "this is simply not fair" – as key staff members head for the exits to avoid Obamacare."
"Simply not fair," is this clown Larson serious? A statement like that is comparable to gross stupidity of Nancy Pelosi, when she said, with regards to Obamacare, "We have to pass the bill to see what's in it."
I'm sure all of you are in agreement with me. It is time to hold our lawmakers accountable to the same standards and laws that we have to follow. For as long as we let them get away with this, our very freedom will disappear. We should be calling for the arrest of these criminal politicians. It would be within our power to do as a large majority of our elected officials have by word or deed broken their oaths of office, and in doing so violated the constitution they are sworn to uphold.
Let's start with the arrest of every single lawmaker who signed Obamacare. We were told (by the President) "This is not a tax" and yet when it was taken to the Supreme Court for deliberation, the President's own lawyers argued that by being a "tax" it was legal and therefore, constitutional. We all know how that turned out, don't we?
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives. . ."
Are those words meaningless and do we have the right to hold them accountable? Yes, I believe we do.
"Immigration and Customs Enforcement has wisely used its prosecutorial discretion to defer removal of young people who arrived in the United States without documentation as children.… I respectfully suggest that you adopt a similar policy of exercising prosecutorial discretion to defer enforcement against agricultural employers and workers, and concentrate instead on removing those who would and have harmed our society, rather than those who contribute to our vital agricultural economy and heritage, and the safe and high-quality food supply that benefits all Americans."
What further proof do we need that these lawmakers are breaking the laws which they write and have sworn to uphold? How much longer are we going to allow these criminals to brazenly flaunt these violations and trample on the constitution? We have been taxed, lied to, and spied on for almost 5 years! It's time to take matters into our own hands and hold these people accountable for their crimes against this nation.
