The Cost Of Apathy
What we are seeing not just is Washington, D.C. but across the nation is the results of fifty plus years of apathy of the American people. Our Founders intended for the American people to stay engaged in politics of this nation. For many decades they did just that. At our founding the world had no government that consisted of the population of the nation chosen by the people of that nation. To allow the people to govern themselves and change their leaders at regular intervals was the envy of the world. For the first time in man’s history if a people did not like those who governed them, they could peacefully and non-violently replace them. When, at the end of George Washington’s second term and he stepped down and the office of the president went to the newly elected John Adams, the world witnessed for the first time a change of a ruler without bloodshed. America is the only nation explicitly founded upon the principles of human equality and natural rights or as our Founders referred to it, God given rights. 
What we as Americans must understand is our government, which is a republic not a democracy, requires attention by the people. It is not a fool proof system. It requires attention by people of a high moral character. Benjamin Franklin warned that we could use the laws of this country to destroy it from the inside. He warned: “When we the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” Little by little we have allowed the government to take our tax dollars and through a welfare system, “vote themselves money”. People have learned to play the welfare system to the max. A person who knows how to make it work can make almost double the average working person without ever having to work for it. Muslim immigrants are coming here with two, three and four wives and immediately going on welfare. Even though in America you cannot have more than one wife, we allow this type of immigration. But it goes far beyond that today. The American taxpayer financially supports multitudes of foreign governments even governments that hate us! If pressed to prove that this is something that the Constitution allows the Federal government to do, Congress would not be able to do so.
This has occurred because the general population no longer holds the politicians feet to the fire in requiring them to govern within the confines of the Constitution. Far too many members of Congress pay no attention to the confines of the Constitution when writing laws. Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) stated in a town hall meeting during the Obama administration that Congress pays no attention to the Constitution when writing laws: Pete Stark said during a townhall meeting that Congress could do basically whatever it wanted to do. He didn’t say anything about working within the framework of the Constitution, Amendments or Constitutional Conventions. He implied they could pass laws willy nilly regardless if the conflicted with the Constitution or its’ Amendments. He should never have been elected & should have been voted out long ago.  Why do we have members of congress that pay no attention to the Constitution? We the people have not paid attention to what they are doing in D.C.! In the last election Congress had an approval rating of 11% but we returned over 90% of them to D.C. George Washington set the example of two terms. We have people that have been in D.C. for 40 plus years. Because of this we have people that are what is called the ‘establishment’. Nothing gets done in D.C. unless they say it’s OK. We should have new people going there every election. Allowing 40 year carriers encourages corruptness and we have it big time. George Washington warned about the corruption of those with political ambition: “No compact among men … can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no wall of words, that no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.”
When we have people like the last president, Barrack Obama, in office we see that it was not the best interest of the American people that was his #1 priority. It was his and his Party’s political power that was his #1 concern. The Democrats rigged the primary so that Hillary would win the primary. They openly admitted that fact. Congress has done nothing about that. In an interview with Bloomberg News George Soros sated that Hillary would win because it was a ‘done deal’. In recent weeks, Democrats have attempted to paint Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump as a lunatic for claiming that the election is going to be rigged in favor of his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
Even Republican politicians and former politicians are telling Trump to knock off such talk.
But, as usual, Trump’s shrewdness and defiance of standard political decorum – in which the “opposition” party merely rolls over and surrenders in the face of Democratic pressure – is winning the day.
None other than billionaire investor and longtime Democratic supporter George Soros has said that the fix is literally in for the election, in favor of Clinton – no matter how much of the popular vote, and from which battleground states, Trump captures.
As reported by Top Right News and other outlets, during a recent interview with Bloomberg News, Soros – a Democrat mega-donor – openly admitted that Trump will win the popular vote in a “landslide.”
However, he said that none of that would matter, because a President Hillary Clinton is already a “done deal.” The only way Hillary winning could be a done deal is voter fraud and corruption.
Noah Webster warned us: “If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted…” This began a long time ago. Woodrow Wilson was a racist dirtbag that pushed America to the point where our economy is no longer controlled by America but foreign banks. It is called The Federal Reserve. Even Patrick Henry warned us: Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.
We’ve come to the brink of losing our great nation. The destruction of America has been in the works for over 100 years and has happened so slowly that most people don’t even see it happening. Will it eventually happen? I’m afraid yes simply because of apathy. We no longer teach the greatness of America and unless the younger generation is educated on that subject, they will never know. Thomas Jefferson stated: “The time to guard against corruption and tyranny, is before they shall have gotten hold on us. It is better to keep the wolf out of the fold, than to trust to drawing his teeth and talons after he shall have entered.” We missed our opportunity to stop it but we can slow it down.
