Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead













By Jim R. Schwiesow

December 19, 2006

Our bi-annual flight from sanity, euphemistically referred to as the national elections, is over, but the relief felt is mitigated by the sobering realization that our reprieve endured for only the better part of a day. After being bombarded daily for two years with the propaganda promulgated by adherents of the philosophy of one political party or another, subjected to the continuous natter of the political pundits who pollute the airwaves with their incessant, and for the most part, completely illogical sentiment, and put upon by a continual stream of inane and debased commercially canned political ads we are being immediately re-immersed in a continuing saga of more of the same. Most normal people are on the verge of emotional exhaustion from the mental torture wrought by continuous political campaigning. It takes sheer will to overcome the noxious fallout from this exercise in lunacy and only the most durable of political groupies manage to weather the onslaught reasonable well.

Within hours of the welcome close of this year�s election a number of presidential hopefuls announced that they have formed study committees to research their chances for a grab at the brass ring, in this case the grab is for the chance to list as their place of residence, for at least four years, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In point of fact they desire the job with such intensity that they would seemingly mortgage their souls to get it. Most have been surreptiously maneuvering for years to be suddenly discovered as credible candidates, and the media ingratiatingly massages their egos and indulges their feigned coyness at being touted as potential prospects for the office. Some of these prospects have thrown their hats into the ring, and if one looks closely they will see that two of those hats are Yankee caps.

At last count five have already made the move to test the waters for their candidacy, and several others have coyly suggested that they are considering the same. The definite maybes are , New York Senator Hillary Clinton, Arizona Senator John McCain, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, former New York City Mayor Rudy Juliani and that sad sack of the political left Massachusetts Senator John Kerry. All are internationalists with no commitment to the sovereignity of the American people.

Hillary Clinton would like the people to forget her battle-ax days as co-equal president with her horny hubby. Most remember well her �We�re the President� statement. She has made her mark by being a petulant and pedantic whiner, who blames her failures on a phantom great right wing conspiracy. She fancys herself as the Margaret Thatcher of American politics, but she hasn�t an ounce of the poise, dignity, wisdom or courage of the Iron Maiden. If the people elect this one they will deserve the fate that awaits them.

Barack Obama is a nice young man with a baby face, and the media people have celebrated him as the savior of the nation on the basis of a mediocre speech at the 2004 National Convention of the Democrats. Actually he is a political neophyte with no experience and little in the way of worldly wisdom. One can see the steam rising from his head as the moisture evaporates from behind his ears. A lot of moisture will have to evaporate before this one is ready for such a high office.

John McCain is another of those perpetual candidates whose credibility has worn thin. A man to be respected for his courage and honorable service as a prisoner of war in Viet Nam, he has failed miserably to bring this courage into the political areana. He has ever been the co-conspirator with left extreme liberal Democrats in a sell-out of the best interests of the legal citizens of the country. I say legal because he has fallen all over himself in the promotion of unearned legal citizenship status for millions of law-breaking illegal aliens. It�s time for a graceful exit for this one.

That second Yankee cap belongs to Rudy Juliani. He wears his legitimately, while Hillary wears hers for political expediency. Rudy is a fun loving soul and a man of the world. He carried out his duties as mayor of New York City admireably, and he went above and beyond during the crises of 9-11. No running and hiding in Nebraska for Rudy. A man who is willing to dress up and play a drag queen is a perfect political leader for the likes of New York City, but as a president he is sadly lacking. A secularist with little, or no, regard for moral absolutes, he champions abortion on demand, homosexual deviency, embryonic stem cell research and a host of other social aberrations, which are inimical to Biblical teachings. Rudy was the man of the hour on 9-11, but he is not the man to heal the nation.

As for John Kerry, what can I say that people don�t already know? This one has an image of self that is reflected by his pomposity and arrogance, which is exceeded only by his dim-wittedness. Unlike, John McCain, who is a genuine war hero, John Kerry is a counterfeit hero. He has decked himself out with all of the trapping and outside appearances, but inside he is a hollow man. He is cut from the same cloth as his Massachusetts corpulent senate compatriot who walked away and left a helpless young woman to drown to save his own worthless political hide. I�m glad that Massachusetts owns both of them; it�s bad enough that the rest of the nation has to suffer from their stupidity.

This nation is soul-sick and there are none on the political horizon who would write the correct prescription for a recovery from that illness. The aforementioned, want to be president, candidates would undoubtedly follow in the footsteps of George W. Bush, and his administration, in the sell-out of the peoples� sovereignty, and a continuing puppet-like deference to the internationalists, internationalists who hate our constitution, and especially hate the fact that our God-given, and thus intrinsic, freedoms are secured by the Bill of Rights. They hate our Bill of Rights with a passion, which is the reason these freedoms are continually under attack by the United Nations.

One has to wonder if the people would listen anyway to one who is truly wise and committed to the principles set forth in the constitution. We are a nation more apt to follow the lead of corrupt elitists and pampered celebrities, than we are to swallow the truth, especially if that truth calls for us to turn from our hedonistic paths, and trod the rocky road back to national integrity.

Because of the dim-wittedness of our political leaders communism, once thought to be dead, is rapidly on the road to becoming a reality in the United States. Some opine that if the nations of the world were to amalgamate into a one-world democratic system the whole world would be integrated into a wondrous utopian society. George Bush talks continually of democratizing the world, does it sound familiar? It should because that is exactly the propaganda, which was espoused by Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, and which was used to lead the people of Russia, and ultimately other eastern European and Asiatic nations into the wretched and vile state of totalitarian communism.

The world elites would like us to believe that communism is dead, that suits their purpose magnificently. Once we believe that lie we are dead meat. Communism is alive and well in the minds of our educational hierarchy. And it is alive and well in the hearts and minds of our liberal politicos and their like-minded Hollywood friends. Once these people gain a foothold with socialism, it is a short step to Bolshevism and the implementation of brute force to put down dissention and eliminate any vestige of opposition to the ultimate establishment of totalitarian control.

There is no way for those who are not afflicted with the darkness of mind that possesses these pathological egotists to understand their desire to move the country from a free society to a totalistic socialist state. A desire to establish a system, which deprives people of dignity, scars their souls, decrees mediocrity, wipes out a middle-class, makes vassals of an entire people, establishes a dictatorial ruling elite, and dooms forever the hopes and dreams of the under-privileged to lift themselves from a sinkhole of despair can only come from a diseased mind.

Some say that they would rather be dead than red, and others reverse the saying. The fact is if the nation continues on its present course, you will be one or the other. There will be no in betweens.
