How can a little ruling class elite act in the best interest of the people they are supposed to represent? How can they design the rules by which a society progresses? They can’t. History proves it. All they can really do is offer up serfdom hidden by populist rhetoric. Where the ruling class gets total control, it always goes badly, very badly.
Listen to Bill Whittle:
Our founding fathers understood very well the Royalist, elitist attitude. They experienced it first hand. To guard against it, Jefferson and friends put their heads together to come up with a new set of rules for governance that empowered the individual and attempted to keep power as close to the people as possible. It was and is radical stuff.
You know. . . radical. . . like what is happening in this country right now. Citizens are rising up trying to rip away the reins of power from the elitists who oppress the people with process and and giant statism. It’s not easy and recently, right here on RedState a diarist wrote in SUPPORT of AK Senate candidate, Joe Miller offering him this backhanded slap: “highly flawed, intelligent, eccentric Conservative. . .”
Good grief! Could it be any harder to get after these political posers? The incoming is inbound from all directions.
Just look at the Founders. Talk about deeply flawed. So flawed they changed the world. Come on people. I don’t give a hoot in hades if our modern day upstart citizen-candidates don’t know how to play well with the establishment. Some tailbones need kicking.
Over the last 100 years there has been great abuse of our Constitutional democracy. People seeking power, control and personal enrichment have chipped away at the ideals of the founders. Mostly, it happened in the courts during periods of distress when a crisis just could not be allowed to go to waste.
Today, right now, and for the next couple of weeks, we have a chance to BEGIN the re-righting of our country and our ship of state. We don’t have settle for lying pretenders any more. . .the Castles, Murkowskis, Bennetts and on and on. We sure don’t have to settle for the Demo-Marxists.
So, a little favor is requested. I ask it on the behalf of Joe Miller, Christine O’Donnell and all the other “deeply flawed” citizen candidates who have let it all hang out in the name of real republican government. I ask it on behalf of the tens of thousands of people who are working for candidates like these. I acknowledge the newcomers are not “professional” and in some cases they aren’t very polished but they are 10 times, no 100 times better than the alternatives at hand. With that in mind, can you maybe just hush about their flaws? Just hold your piece till November 3rd at least (forever would be preferable). If you can’t do this, then we will know you for what you really are and the judgment shall be harsh upon you.
Update: Just finished watching TX Senator and NSRC’s John Cornyn vs MO Senator McCaskill (on Fox) and it reaffirmed just how much work conservatives have to do. Not pretty. . . more after November 2nd.
