I like the sentiment but . . .

“I am not here as a serf or vassal. I am not begging my lords for mercy.”

Oh, but you are. You just don’t realize it. “You’re innocent until proven guilty” has become “you’re innocent for now. Until we look into it and even if you are, we’ll fuck your life up so bad it won’t matter.”

There are two governments. The first is the elected one and it’s comprised of ineffective, ineffectual, beholden shysters who are accountable only to the extent people stop voting for them. Since we have an incumbency rate of north of 80%, that basically means there’s little accountability. Their only purpose is to get re-elected for the perks.

The second government is the not elected government. These are the bureaucrats who typically have job titles like “associate executive assistant to the director of some secretary for some alphabet agency”. These guys are unaccountable in any way, shape, fashion or form. Hell, we can’t even get these guys fired, barring a dead body or a molested child. They’re only purpose is to make the lives of productive people expensive, stressful, or even criminal. They are judge, jury and executioner in their realm. The IRS can take all your money without a judge saying so. The EPA can shut your farm or business down without a judge’s approval. Customs can seize all your imported product at the border. For any reason they choose. You can sue and might get your stuff back. But the damage is done.

You can change the elected government all you want but that, thus far, has had zero effect on the not elected government. You are their serf. Or their vassal. Like I’ve said before, if the .gov can make you install a chair lift in your pool, it can make you pick its cotton.

And now, the elected government is siccing the not elected government on their electable foes.

You’re not voting your way out of it.

    Steven T. Miller will be surprised to learn this.

    Is that the guy who was retiring this month anyway? I can’t keep up.

  3. joe in houston Says:

    He was retiring. And Learner(sp?) was put on paid administrative leave.

    Yup, that’s some ‘firing’ right there.

    You think it is hard to fire a government employee?

    Just watch if one of those “low level” employees has evidence implicating higher ups, he/she will be fired before the end of the day.

    But really, they do to the disfavored employee as they do to disfavored political opponents, suddenly there is an audit or investigation into all those actions that you go high evals for before.

    I agree. But after the ballot box fails, there’s only two more boxes. I have no faith in the first of those.

    This is called the permanent government, hidden to most. Hidden because they are blind and deaf, and in many cases willfully ignorant, choosing to believe it does not exist.

    These are those who control the four dynasties that rule this nation.
    1. economics
    2. education
    3. government
    4. religion

    At whose direction?

    Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    Or is that just another clever fairy tale concocted by man?

    So far there are hundreds of dead bodies left over from Fast and Furious, and we still have Holder.

    Amen Brother!

    And now, Rice and Power have been promoted.

    @Uncle

    You forgot a government – the shadow government – that we never see.

  13. Reno Sepulveda Says:

    The unelected government, just try to serve them a subpoena at their place of business. Unaccountable? Hell they’re untouchable at work.

    All the men in my congregation understand that we are not voting our way out of this. The wimminz? It’s all play nice and suck up to authority for them. The Church, like most of Western society, is all ate up with feminism, which is really just marxism in a bikini. Uxorious men are very annoying, and will be the death of us.
