“When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you, you know your nation is doomed.” – Ayn Rand
Our rights, originally enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and its Bill of Rights have been slowly eroding. During the Obama Administration the pace of this corrosion has increased with the government take over of healthcare, the weaponizing of the federal bureaucracy, and the IRS targeting conservative groups. This was done with impunity.
When Attorney General Eric Holder was found to be in contempt of Congress, nothing ever happened to him. When Congress wanted to charge former IRS official, Lois Lerner, with contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about her targeting the Tea Party movement and other conservative groups for audits and other IRS attacks, Eric Holder’s Justice Department refused to file those charges.
When COVID 19 hit our shores, this erosion became a landslide. For one of the few times in history, a government virtually quarantined healthy people with their enforced lock down. Fear was used abundantly to ensure compliance with the government taking away our rights to practice our religions, peaceably assemble, address grievances and earn a living by keeping our businesses open. We were forced to wear masks, under penalty of imprisonment and monetary fines. Social media, in conjunction with our government, restricted the information we received from our allegedly “free press”.
If this seems like the embodiment of the above Ayn Rand quote, it was mild compared to the persecution of President Trump while he was in office and the indictments of him since he left office. Donald Trump is absolutely correct when he points out that if the government can do these things to him, a president and former president, they can do it to anyone. When a Capitol police officer can shoot and kill an unarmed demonstrator and he is not prosecuted, but later promoted, it is an extraordinary example of the law not protecting citizens from the corrupt, but protecting the corrupt from the citizens.
Joe Biden’s corruption is unmatched in our history. A liar and plagiarizer throughout his political career, he is also a prime example of a “public servant” getting rich while in office. The information is mounting daily that Joe Biden, in conjunction with his son, Hunter, and other relatives, has received millions of dollars through corruption. That specific corruption is the selling of Joe Biden’s political influence. Biden’s whole political history needs to be investigated to see how far back his malfeasance goes and when it started. It all bears a total examination.
Federal law is supposed to be enforced by the United States Attorney General, Merrick Garland. He has done nothing but obstruct current investigations of the Biden crime family. If this isn’t the law protecting the corrupt, what is it?
So the question that needs to be asked and answered: Is our Constitutional republic lost or doomed? If we can survive the next sixteen months of the Biden administration, and vote in candidates for all offices who are for “America first”, we will not only overcome this corruption, but we will thrive once again.
