Gangster Government in Washington

Written by 

Sam BlumenfeldAccording to my dictionary, a gangster is a member of a gang of criminals. Criminals, of course, are guilty of crimes. A crime is an act committed in violation of a law prohibiting it, or omitted in violation of a law ordering it.

Gangster number one is the Imposter in the White House who will not reveal his birth certificate nor the records of his education. All of those around him who are helping the imposter conceal the facts of his birth are accomplices in violating the law requiring the President to prove that he is a natural born American.

The gang in the White House and their accomplices in Congress are clearly violating the Constitution of the United States, which they have all sworn to uphold. That in itself is a crime. Furthermore, there is nothing in the Constitution that permits the gang in Washington to bail out banks and insurance companies, take ownership of automobile companies, impose a national healthcare plan, enact draconian restrictions on commerce and industry in the name of global warming, or indoctrinate children in the public schools.

Those who now occupy the White House believe that they are a law unto themselves and no longer have to uphold the Constitution of the United States, which limits what the federal government can do. The socialist gang in the White House believes in unlimited government, capable of doing anything it wants. And those in Congress who agree with the principle of unlimited government are equally guilty of violating their oaths of office.

And our national media, to its shame, casts a blind eye to all of the criminality now taking place in Washington in the guise of “government.” That is the most disappointing aspect in all of this: the news media of a free country which is supposed to be the citizens’ watchdog, becoming an accomplice in the promotion of unconstitutional government. Not a single one of the well-paid talking heads will question the constitutionality of what the White House is doing.

Because our mechanisms of government are now run by a gang, the entire system has become corrupt from top to bottom. All of the departments ruled by the executive branch are now run by Gangster Number One. He calls the tune, whether it be the department of education, or of defense, commerce, or foreign affairs. The corruption starts at the top and filters its way down to the bottom.

These are the facts of life that Americans must now confront. The Declaration of Independence states that "all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed." In other words, the present situation, as bad as it is, has not gotten bad enough to justify physical revolution. There is still the ballot box, and Americans will be able to get the gangsters out of Washington in the Congressional election in 2010. It is then we shall know to what the degree the American people have become as corrupt as their government, or whether they still believe in the Constitution of the United States.

What is particularly disheartening and somewhat startling is the sight of elected American lawmakers, so-called Democrats, finally showing their true socialist colors. These enemies of the American system now occupy the halls of Congress and many state legislatures, doing all in their power to transform the nation our Founding Fathers gave us into one resembling any number of decrepit socialist utopias spreading misery around the world. Our legislators and leaders have brought us to this precipice, using trillions of taxpayer’s dollars to finance all of their criminal projects. But only the American people can set things right again. And let’s pray that they do.
