We the People Have No Representative Government

It has come to this. We, the American people, no longer have a true representative form of government. We are now saddled with an assembly of people, elected to office, who simply do not understand the US constitution, its mandates, its limits, its requirements, its obligations. Our government – wholly unrecognizable from that the Constitution lays out simply does not represent the people. Period.

While we may currently have a President, who has tried his hardest to stand for the American everyman instead of the special interests, the potentates, and the oligarchs, we have a Congress that immediately forgets that their sole role is to represent their constituents and their states the microsecond after they are elected to office.

While we have a President, who has done more to give relief to the American everyman, we have nine cowards on the US Supreme Court who have abdicated their obligation to the US Constitution and, instead, have made ducking their responsibilities, inventing ways to never have to rule on questions of constitutionality, an award-winning art.

The last straw for the Judicial Branch – and I say again that they are a bunch of sniveling cowards and should serve as the catalyst for intense, rapid, and abrupt change in government at the federal level, the last straw came in their scheduling a constitutional argument related to the 2020 General Election results for after the inauguration.

“The justices this week set a reply deadline for Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and the other respondents named in the case of Jan. 22. The campaign had asked for the Supreme Court to order those on the other side of the litigation to respond by Wednesday and have reply briefs from the Trump campaign submitted by Thursday. It also asked the court to rule by Jan. 6. But the court did not oblige,” it was reported.

“This means that by the time Boockvar and the others the Trump campaign is seeking to take to the Supreme Court even respond to the petition, President-elect Joe Biden will already be sworn in… At that point, the court could simply decline to hear the case, saying it is moot or impossible for them to resolve at that point.”

To put it into layman’s terms, the US Supreme Court has decided the election without issuing a ruling. They have raised a gigantic, arrogant, cowardly middle finger to the people of the United States…for a second time.

So, please, answer me this question. If we have a federal government that does not serve the people it was created to serve, why do we even have a federal government?

The Congress does not serve the people. Even as the people lose their jobs and businesses because of fake pandemic, Congress doles out $2.1 trillion to foreign entities and gives each taxpayer $600 of our own tax money back. That’s serving the people?

The US Supreme Court – as well as all the useless federal district courts and appeals courts, refuse to rule constitutionally on matters directly related to the survival of the Republic – if they rule at all, and that is supposed to be serving the public or having fidelity to the US Constitution?

We are a Union of 50 states, with 50 state constitutions that are sovereign. As it stands, we, effectively, have no federal government that represents the people.

Now that this is self-evident, we should revisit the words of our Founders:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness; “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

  1. Your a an idiot. It was the republicans that wouldn’t help the american people. All Trump has done is spread lies and false information. Inciting mobs and taking a stand against his own lawfully elected representatives. Now there is a group of people storming the Capitol and if Trump was truly a President worthy of anything other than my shit. He would be putting this bullshit down. But he is not a worthy president. He completely fucked up the Pandemic and blamed everyone but himself. You all need to wake the fuck up.

  2. The “People” are ignorant of their country, its history and its constitution. Lazy, distracted and as self indulgent as they are, by the time they realize what has happened it will be too late.

  3. And to top it all off, SCOTUS judges not based on whether people’s consent is stolen but rather on whether there might be riots.

  4. What is being overlooked or just ignored is that there is a 4th branch of government preserved by the Constitution and that branch is “WE THE PEOPLE”. I personally believe that the citizens in the “WE THE PEOPLE” group far outnumber any rogue, freeloading, unpatriotic, etc groups combined. The Democrats that are currently trying to steal our government would be well advised not to push this group of citizens to far. While we are considered the silent majority we have in the past and can again in the future make a lot of noise and secure what is dear to us and what belongs to us via the Constitution. Those that want to push us in a corner and try to rule us beware!! Democrats would do well to remember that our government is to be administered for the people, by the people. Democrats, you are elected by us and work for us to govern as we the people please and not in accordance with your personal agendas. Democrats, wake up and smell the coffee or you are in for a real rough ride!!!

  5. Sigh….Looks like it is now up to us, the American people, to destroy our treasonous government. Sure was deeply hoping it wouldn’t come to this but SCOTUS has betrayed us while our president seems reluctant to set loose the military to round up the anti-constitutional crowd both in DC as well as in the states. Is there anything left to defend ourselves with against these treasonous “representatives” of the citizens besides open revolution?

  6. The most important line is not highlighted.
    “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; ”
    Key phrase: deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed
    Key word: consent
    How can it called consent when the powers that want to be have cheated and STOLEN our consent?
