Report 53: The Malaise of America

Over the past three years I have watched my beloved country, the United States of America sink from a high level of national prosperity and world-wide respect to the laughing stock of the modern world. The primary reason for this degradation can be boiled down to one culprit, the American politician.

When I look at the American politician, I see an entitled class who goes into office with semi-modest means and within a few years is a multimillionaire. They feel like the average citizen is beneath them and treats them like serfs. Of course, being feudal lords, the politicians promise handouts that engender loyalty so that they will be reelected to continue handing out “free” money and other benefits.

During the “Covid Crisis” the politicians (and unelected bureaucrats), with the help of the Chinese Communist Party, created a problem and then came up with the solution to the problem they created. This circular strategy was looked upon with great glee by the vast majority of the country as these politicians were passing out trillions of dollars. Of course, it’s easy to pass out other people’s money.

We are now in a situation that the Founders would have NEVER imagined, a national debt that will never be paid off; and yet, the politicians keep sending the taxpayers’ money out to people who never worked for it and have no right to it. The recipients of this largess will just grin and go on their merry way.

We see daily reports of thousands of illegals crossing our southern border and nothing is done to stop the flow. Meanwhile, thousands of people are waiting in countries around the world to come here legally. The illegals coming in are given transportation to the city of their choice, or if they don’t have a preference, one is provided to them; they are given money for subsistence (we can’t have the illegals starve), and set up for OUR social security and medical care. There is a “joke” going around that the best way for an American to live is to go to Mexico, renounce his U.S. citizenship, and come back into the U.S. illegally to get all the benefits. All this time, our national debt is skyrocketing in order for the Democrats to generate new voters.

Daily, we see YouTube videos of Congress Critters hammering bureaucrats for not doing the job they promised to do but nothing gets solved. Daily, we watch Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas sit before committee after committee and get grilled and exposed for his prevarication and outright lying. We see the same scenario with Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christoher Wray as well as other bureaucrats.

Evidence of unconstitutional behavior exhibited by these Biden-appointed bureaucrats is presented almost daily but the Congress Critters responsible for holding these and many others accountable are doing nothing. I have not seen any news of impeachment proceedings against any of them. Am I to assume that just because we see them being excoriated on YouTube that will be enough? Are these felons going to get by with just an embarrassing 15 minutes on YouTube?

Looking at my current tax “obligation,” I calculate that over 50% of my disposable income goes to taxes of one form or another and I’m not alone. Americans are living in the “frog in the pot” syndrome. The water keeps getting warmer and Americans are just getting used to the increased temperature. Eventually, the temperature gets too high and the frog dies. That is what we are looking at with America. Our money is being promised to too many people who haven’t worked for it and do not deserve it. It is not just the illegals who are getting our money, it is the welfare recipient who has been caught in the welfare world and is unwilling to break that cycle; it is foreign governments who don’t particularly like us but will kowtow to us so that they can continue to get their piece of the foreign country handouts; it is funding foreign wars in which we have no national interest. I do not include the current war between Israel and the Islamist devils; we DO have a national interest in that one.

These and many other wasteful and unnecessary dole programs are bleeding our country dry. If I ran my household on a deficit basis like Congress and the senile felon in the White House are doing, I would have been kicked out and homeless years ago. It’s time for Americans to stand up and be counted.

And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson, 1787
