You cannot say we were not warned about the current actions of our elected Democrats, Obama’s holdovers in government, and most of the press. A careful reading of the following quotes makes it clear that our founding fathers anticipated the dangers of the path that our nation is currently on.
From George Washington’s farewell address:
“And warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.
“This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind … it is seen in its greatest rankness and is truly their worst enemy …
“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty…
“Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.”
Alexander Hamilton (Publius), from “The Federalist Papers,” no. 65:
“A well-constituted court for the trial of impeachments is an object not more to be desired than difficult to be obtained in a government wholly elective. The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. The prosecution of them, for this reason, will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions, and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other; and in such cases there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.”
The three-year search to find grounds to remove President Trump has shown our elected Democrats not to be in a search for truth, but rather a fascist tyranny reflective of Lavrentiy Beria, head of Joseph Stalin’s secret police, when he said, “Show me the man, and I will show you the crime.”
A careful reading of Hamilton and Washington makes it clear that the Democrats are acting as despots and tyrants. They have ignored the Constitution and are trying to turn our republic into a parliament. The inquisition so far has presented evidence based on presumption, rumor and innuendo by bureaucrats full of self-importance.
If Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and Jerry Nadler had any character, they would resign. Their iniquities are far greater than those of Katie Hill. Democrats need not worry. You voted for your tyrants and, for now, get to keep them. Early for Christmas?
