When Are They Gonna Stop Poking Our Cage?

-They’re gonna build a Mosque at Ground Zero. Despite the fact that that a mile-wide cordon is maintained off the debris field of the Titanic (-it is, after all, a hollowed gravesite), and despite the fact that there are dozens of American cemeteries scattered around the globe where the highest level of secure installation of the honored dead is observed, the fact that 2,605 absolutely innocent Americans were ruthlessly murdered at the World Trade Center and the place where they perished is hallowed ground, the Federal Governing Elites are utterly unmoved by their deaths, and are going to build a mosque at the site.

-They’re gonna let homosexuals and lesbians marry in California, despite the fact that 7 million Californians voted to outlaw the procedure. Despite the fact that President Obama himself declared the federal Defense of Marriage act a silly intrusion into “States Rights” issue, the Federal Governing Elites have decided to hell with states rights, and have now imposed their will on the nation.

-Despite the fact that 70 percent of those living along the Gulf Coast have opined that they want the oil patch re-opened, the Federals Governing Elites are still keeping these oil resources off limits.

-Despite the fact that 65 percent of Americans want creches to be allowed on government property, prayer in schools, and the Pledge of Allegiance recited before class begins, the Federal Governing Elites continue to shove God from the public square, and moral training away from students.

-Despite the fact that over 60 percent of Americans want Obamacare repealed, and 80 percent do not want a national system of socialized medicine, the Federal Governing Elites are moving full steam ahead, implementing a byzantine system of health-care delivery that even the Government Accountability Office cannot estimate the number of boards, committees and bureaucrats which will be required to administer it. Despite the fact that over 80 percent of Americans remain happy with their current health-care insurances and providers, the Federal Governing Elites are busy dismantling this framework with all due speed and intensity.

-Despite the fact that 70 percent of the nation, and 85 percent of Arizonans, support the enforcement of federal immigration laws, the Federal Governing Elites refuse to enforce them, and have taken Arizona to court to restrain that state from their own efforts to enforce these laws.

-Despite the fact that almost 80 percent of Missourians voted to outlaw the individual health-insurance mandate, the Federal Governing Elites have said this vote has no effect on how they will proceed.

-Despite the fact that 75 percent of Americans do not find “global warming” to be of concern, especially one that requires federal legislation, the Federal Governing Elites are elbowing their way forward to implement a ridiculously expensive carbon tax.

-Despite the fact that, according to Rasmussen Reports, 65 percent of Americans understand that the best way to stimulate the economy is to reduce taxes, the Federal Governing Elites refuse to cut taxes, and are instead empaneling a commission to recommend a Value Added Tax.

And finally, despite the fact that this is supposed to be a free, democratic representative republic, and that our citizens regularly trudge out to the polls, election after election, year after year, decade after decade, and voice their opinions, we continue to get higher taxes, bigger deficits, detestable social policy, schools that are manifest failures, and a government that torments and abuses us. Our votes mean nothing when the Federal Governing Elites can just decide what it decides, and implement it anyway.

A question: Just how much longer are we gonna let them poke our cage with their fat fingers before we get seriously pissed off?
