When Donald Trump, the Candidate for the Leadership of the Republican Party Campaigned, I don’t recall him ever saying “WE HAVE TO DRAIN THE SWAMP”.
But . . . when Primary Candidate Trump became Republican Candidate Trump Versus Crooked Hillary, somehow along the Campaign Trail, a NEW MANTRA & CHANT EMERGED FROM THE PEOPLE . . . “DRAIN THE SWAMP”.
And . . . As Candidate Trump said repeatedly on the Campaign Trail . . . that the Chant of “DRAIN THE SWAMP” came at a Complete Surprise to him, Trump the Candidate quickly made “DRAIN THE SWAMP” part of his Mantra, which either equaled or surpassed “BUILD THE WALL & LOCK HER UP”.
It’s not that the People don’t want President Trump to “BUILD THE WALL”, which the Majority really does. And it’s not that the People wouldn’t love to see Crooked Hillary “LOCKED-UP”, and Bill Clinton TOO for that matter . . . But the REALITY of the Times, at least as it seems to me, is that the MOST IMPORTANT PROMISE amongst many, is that the People REALLY want President Trump to “DRAIN THE SWAMP” ASAP!
There are so many SWAMP CREATURES in Government, it’s hard to know where to begin to look for the First that Needs to be DRAINED MOST, so I’ll make it easy and rely on the MASSIVE SENTIMENT I ALWAYS HEAR/READ . . . In Just Two Words – It’s Called TERM LIMITS.
Like all Thinking People living in a FREE WESTERN STYLE DEMOCRACY, I despise the FACT, that our Politicians, through their own Political and Bureaucratic Devices, are able to CREATE Circumstances for themselves, which are so far ABOVE & BEYOND what you and I can EVER hope to enjoy . . . In PERPETUITY during their Natural Lifetime on our AFTER-TAX Hard Earned Money, that it is nothing short of being CRIMINAL.
IT’S BAD . . . REALLY BAD – To the Point of being IMMORAL, just how our Politicians & Bureaucrats have Carved out their Own Special World at our Expense . . . But it becomes even MUCH WORSE, when you see how our Politicians and Bureaucrats have become ARROGANT, CONDESCENDING & FAR REMOVED from the Real World and the People who FINANCE ALL OF THEIR PERKS & PRIVILEGES, that the People JUST WANT TO SEE THEM GONE.
OK . . . John McCain was an American War Hero during the Vietnam War. But so were EVERY Man and Woman who also SERVED in Vietnam, Korea, WWII, WWI, The Spanish American War, the Civil War, the Barbary War Against the Moslem Pirates, and the US Revolution.
John McCain is NO MORE A HERO, than the Men and Women who SERVED and are Still Serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and Elsewhere around the GLOBE . . . So ENOUGH with the CRAP that John McCain was a War Hero, which does ENTITLE him to receive the Nation’s Gratitude . . . BUT NOT AMERICA’S VOTES FOREVER.
PERSONALLY . . . I don’t think John McCain was ever a Great Senator. But then again, I don’t think MOST Politicians in the House or the Senate are all that GREAT. And when we see how America has FALLEN for Decades and Generations under their CONTROL . . . I think they’re all FULL OF BS, and aren’t worth the cost of the Paper and Ink their Salary and Perk Checks are Written-On.
ALL FEDERAL COURT JUDGES ARE APPOINTED . . . More than 600-District Court Judges, about 200-Appeal Court Judges, and the 9-Supreme Court Judges . . . BUT NOT ONE OF THEM IS ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE.
THE ARGUMENT IS MADE . . . that all Federal Court Judges are VETTED & APPROVED by the Senate, which is Elected by the People . . . IPSO FACTO, the Judges have been Approved by the People, via the People’s Elected Senate, which “MIGHT” have MERIT, if the Senate wasn’t such a Disgrace.
I BRING-UP JUDGES . . . Because just YESTERDAY, a Federal Judge, JAMES ROBART, APPOINTED by George W Bush, PASSED JUDGMENT ON THE DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, declaring that President Trump’s Executive Order to “TEMPORARILY” Delay the Immigration of People from 7-Islamic Countries to the USA . . . IS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL.
TODAY . . . As I’m writing this Editorial – it is Saturday February 4, 2017, WHICH IS A FACT. Yet, this Seattle Judge, Far Removed from Washington DC, who was NEVER Elected by ANYONE to have the Position and the Authority he currently has, could DECLARE that today is NOT SATURDAY & NOT FEBRUARY 4, 2017, And That Would Become The Law, until someone Turns to another UNELECTED JUDGE from a Higher Court, who will Rule the Opposite. But by then, the damage is done.
SO PLEASE TELL ME . . . Where in the United States Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights does it specifically GIVE UNELECTED JUDGES, the Right and Power to CREATE Laws and DISMISS Laws at their Whim?
Because . . . if the American Judiciary really has this Type of Power, America is not a REPUBLIC Based upon the Rule of Secular Laws as was Established from the Beginning, but rather, a Country GOVERNED BY UNELECTED BUREAUCRATS, who were and are nothing MORE than Lawyers, who were APPOINTED by Politicians to Wear Black Robes.
When the People Chanted “DRAIN THE SWAMP” at Trump Rallies, I have serious DOUBTS that Candidate Donald Trump Imagined how Deep, Infested, and Powerful the SWAMP really was. But now that he knows . . . he has 4-Years to get the Job Done, with hopefully 4-More Years to replace it with something much better, because it’s hard to imagine MUCH WORSE.
