Whether Republican or Democrat the destruction of America's exceptionalism seems pre-ordained

Has the sun set on virtue in civil life?

WASHINGTON, March 2, 2015 – Let’s looks at what our government is doing to the citizenry. We have become a divisive, hyphenated country. It is now racist to insist those immigrants who come here should assimilate to our way of life. Yet they deemed that way of life better than their own, or why did they come here?

Wy should we change our way of life, or allow any immigrant to impose their own laws in the U.S? Why should we allow Sharia law in this country?

Why are Muslims upset over such small things like a café that advertises bacon on the marquee?

Our country is a Republic, and as such needs to have a citizenry that is informed, hard working, with an ability to have a vision of what the Founders wanted, and the ability to elect leaders of the same vision. Sadly, our population has been undermined by education and social pressure to let others make the decisions for us.

From Common Core, an federally-imposed educational decision formerly left to the States, to immigration, which dilutes our loyalty to our country with multiculturalism.

The elections in 2016 will be worth watching. There are a few Republican establishment types involved, and a few mostly real conservatives.

As for the Republican establishment types, is it really possible to vote for Democrat “Lite?”

If you make a promise, keep it. Don’t just slow the growth of government, stop it. We can’t afford it, and our children and grandchildren can’t afford it.

Both parties are corrupt, with special interests and an arrogance to the citizens that vote them into office. The complicit media covers for both when needed, but have taken papering over Democrat missteps and scandals to an art form.

It was the intention of the founding fathers that most decisions should be left to the states. Why was that? It was because they knew most issues were better resolved at the local level, with each state being a constantly changing marketplace of concepts, a laboratory of rules, regulations, and issues that are local and actually pertinent to the locality.

It would keep power from accumulating in Washington, and that power would not have the capability to corrupt and expand their power. Every American should be angry with the usurpation of the power of the state. States can not run a deficit, are more responsive to their constituents, and if a state is badly run, the voters will either vote them out, or leave.

It’s called the Tenth Amendment, and asserts all powers not clearly given to the government are retained by the States.

Let’s take immigration for example. Why hasn’t Texas built a fence? All Republicans, or at least the establishment types, have folded on the fence, and soon, on all immigration including amnesty. Is this because corporate donors or the American Chamber of Commerce wants it? It certainly is not the citizens of this country, particularly those living near the border who can’t even get law enforcement to show up, and when they do they are not allowed to do anything. Why? The federal government says so.

Our politicians are telling us that we must make accommodations for illegals. In fact we are not even allowed to call them that anymore, because it hurts their feelings. Yes, the establishment Republicans will cave, on immigration, on Obamacare, on the budget, and anything else Obama wants. We don’t need a slower rate of growth, or more immigrants.

Who thinks bringing illegals here on H1B visas to be trained by Americans to take their place such as Southern California Edison in Southern California, is a good idea? How can it be a good idea when seven out of every eight jobs created over the past six years have been part time and the number of Americans in poverty increased over 6 million?

The Democrats passed Obamacare all by themselves, and how many times have they put off implementing parts of the law, and how many times have the Republicans used the excuse that there is nothing we can do?

I wash my hands of both of them, I am a conservative, and want my country back and there are millions of us out here. Let’s see where we go after the 2016 elections. There isn’t much time left.
