Letters to the Editor 2019

To the Editor: 

For some time now, I have been reluctant to voice my concerns with respect to the content of this letter. I feel that while some would disagree with me, the vast majority may concur that my fears are based soundly in fact.

For those who don't know me, allow me to state that I am apolitical. I do not align myself with any particular party, and I support individuals based on their ideas, etc. If I had to label myself, I would say that I am a "conservative constitutional American."

The Constitution is the foundation and bedrock upon which our nation and government stand. It was put in place by our founding fathers to maintain and preserve the nation and the ideals upon which they founded this country.

The Constitution must stand and remain, or America will no longer stand. While our forefathers made provision to amend the Constitution from time to time as needed, they did not give way to revoke or circumvent its principals.

Amending the Constitution is a very serious issue. It was never intended to be done every time the wind changes direction or to satisfy the whims of a transient majority. Constitutional amendments must be weighed in light of the long-term good of the entire nation as a whole.

I have said this because I have a genuine fear that we, as a nation, are losing sight of who we are, and how important our heritage is. As we approach yet another presidential election, I have been watching and listening to exactly what the prospective candidates are saying and doing, as well as what those already in office are doing and saying.

What I am hearing and seeing is frightening and sickening, to say the least. I hear presidential wannabes stating openly that they don't care what the Constitution says; they will use executive power to accomplish their agenda.

I heard another state, "When we have a Democratic White House, a Democratic Congress and a Democratic Senate, then we will do what we want." This is not a balance of power, this is a dictatorship.

Another presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, complained about the need to change the rules of the Senate to get laws enacted without being blocked by actions that are currently allowed. These rules exist as a part of the balance of power.

They were put in place to prevent just what Warren is trying to do. Because we can't get what we want, playing by the rules, we will change the rules to impose our will on the people.

Hillary Clinton recently posted a re-tweet that called for the Constitution to be shredded if it did not allow Trump to be impeached, and replaced with a modern one that would. At the same time, we have a president who has apparently run rogue and is setting himself up to be a ruler.

This is all very dangerous and needs to be taken very seriously by the people. It is sad to say, but it is all very similar to 1930's Germany and many other nations in history.

We can't stand idly by and let this happen. This is not politics, this is subversion. Divide and conquer from within.

Right now, the single greatest threat to the continued existence of freedom in the nation is our politicians and our lack of concern about their agenda.
