It used to be a certainty that the left-right pendulum would eventually swing so far left that it would have to snap back to the right. At least I thought so.
Now I’m not so sure. I fear that when the time comes for the great swing, there will not be enough citizens, certainly not enough constitutionalists, to usher in the swing or even welcome it.
So where does this leave us?
Does it leave us at the point that Thomas Jefferson described in the Declaration of Independence? Well, not exactly, but maybe closer than we think.
Our federal government, as were all state governments, was created to secure the rights “endowed by our creator” – unalienable rights – “that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” and affirmed by our Constitution.
However, one has to be either a fool or willfully ignorant to think that our current state is even remotely akin to the vision of our founders.
Despite it being our right, is it even possible at this juncture, “to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government?” Or, like the old Soviet Union, is our government so large and all encompassing that it can’t be abolished – not by force anyway.
As the government is constituted now, even if we are able to elect a slew of constitutionalists to office, it will have little effect on the governmental Kraken – the exceedingly leftist bureaucratic monster.
So again, where does this leave us?
