How Many Times can Congressional Members Fold Like Cheap Suits?
Derivation: Cheap suits are normally made of thinner and poorer-quality fabric that expensive ones and they are easier to fold. "Fold" meaning "collapse or give way under pressure" has been in use since the 16th century. Perhaps the commonest use nowadays is in card-playing; in poker, a player who "folds" gives up and withdraws from the game.
It’s amazing how little effect the 2010 midterm elections had on the RINO (Republican in Name Only for those recently awakened and new to politics) establishment members. Unfortunately, they continue to operate as if they had lost the House of Representatives instead of gaining it. Most certainly go-along-to-get-along Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) acts as if this were so. And will any of us truly forget Senator Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) submissive and unbecoming beggings to Obama and the Democrats, as he quickly and willingly joined Marxist-Leninist Harry Reid (D-NV) to help McConnell with his original “I’ll always give up without a fight, Mr. Obama” pleadings? These McConnell overtures were designed to give the usurper-in-chief virtually everything he wanted in the recently passed “debt deal.” The same can be said for every Republican who voted to pass the phony “don’t let us default!” bill--supposed newbie (and now proven to be bogus) conservative electees included. By the way, we would NOT have defaulted. And this literally begs the questions “Is Congress really folding like the proverbial cheap suit? Or, is some other--perhaps very disturbing--motivation in play?”
What has recently happened is that the US Congress with its growing anti-We-the-People votes--votes that have become all too common in the last three years--and most recent unconstitutional formation of the 12 member “Super Congress” has removed any doubt that the US government’s Constitutional Congressional representation of the people of this country has ended. Instead, this new Super Congress would allow no discussion, debate or amendments on or to the bills it wants to be enacted. Only a “Yes” or “No” will be allowed. In its badly-acted pretense of opposition to Obama’s New Marxist-Leninist-Islamo-fascist Empire (are you aware of how many Muslim Brotherhood members Obama has already appointed to high-level government positions?), the political ruling-class US Congress (RINOs most definitely included) has now gleefully joined it. Monetary and power gains seem to be the reason (aka “bribery“) for each and every ostensibly ludicrous and supplicant move made by RINOs toward their Big Brother Democrats and away from We-the-People and the US Constitution (which now apparently lies in some shredder…someplace). Even the uber-leftist Daily Kos challenges the constitutionality of the recent Congressional moves in its article “Super Congress Super Unconstitutional.”
As Congress moves ever more steadily towards an oligarchy, Obama moves ever closer to his Colonial--albeit illegal--Presidency. Together, Obama and the US Congress, today, comprise an “Imperial Government.” The coup has already occurred. We-the-People have now lost two of the three branches of what was once our government. And…the judiciary is largely leftist, with more and more of US judges’ rulings no longer based upon US law but, rather their own beliefs. Will SCOTUS be the next to fall into the dark abyss of forcing the American people into totalitarian rule? Note: Remember, if you’re not willing to fight for Liberty, you doom yourself to die under Tyranny.
What was written two-hundred thirty-five years ago by our ancestors seems to be as applicable today as it was when it was first written:
“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
“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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Is anyone still reading this document and understanding what was said in it? Anyone?
