This is something I have been thinking a lot about. We have become a nation of ignorant cowards afraid of their shadows. Divided into little easily controlled groups. Manipulated by dishonest Public Relations experts who used to sell soda, beer, and tampons, and are now selling Socialism.
But when did this happen? I cannot point to an exact date when America went from being the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”, to the “Land of the Victim and the Home of the Gay” (my salute to Lady Gaga), but I realize now that it was complete by the time Bill Clinton escaped the proper consequences of his crimes.
Leftists repeated then, and repeat now, that the Impeachment of Bill Clinton was just about sex. What a crock of shit, and everyone knows it, including the people saying it. Bill Clinton was not Impeached because he “had sex” with that intern. He was Impeached because he was charged with sexual harassment, and used the powers of the presidency to evade those charges. It was not Sex; it was Sexual Harassment, Abuse of Power, Obstruction of Justice, and Perjury.
When it was all over, Clinton got away with it. And that is because the American People really didn’t care anymore about the Law, the Constitution, or Justice.
He copped a plea deal, plead guilty to perjury, lost his law license, and is now a Democrat celebrity.
I knew then that if the American People allowed that sort of Abuse of Power by the President, future Presidents would do even worse. What is there to stop a President from abusing the power of his office other than his conscience?
A people who would allow their leaders to behave in this way are not a people deserving of freedom.
And that my friends is how democracy dies.
