In the realm of politics we are often subjected to diversely opposed opinions regarding the state of affairs and the process to improve such. Most people find the bickering boring and trivial, but it is revealing. There are hints of honesty in the words they speak, that reveal their underlying agenda. When they cross the borders of the principles that this nation was founded upon, you can rest assured that individual and their posse don't have that nation's best interest in mind.
We are often reminded that this nation was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. These are found in the teaching offered in the Bible, which has revelations that hold the keys to living a successful life. Our current President has decided to tour the country announcing that anyone who achieves that success is responsible to donate more to the government so they can redistribute that windfall as they see fit. He has gone as far to say that the people who've earned their prosperity, "you didn't do that." His solution is to impose a higher tax rate upon the successful using statements like, "we tried the trickle down method, it didn't work." This is where I take exception, because that is directly opposed to what we are told in life's owner's manual.
"It is beyond dispute that the inferior is blessed by the superior."-Hebrews 7:7
Now that I've cleared that up, let's address another misnomer by the same party. Our current Senate majority Leader has announced that he received a phone call from an unnamed source at Bain Capital that told him Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes in over a decade. Mr Reid is now calling for Mr. Romney to release his tax records, which again is directly opposed to one of the basic principles our nation is founded upon. We are a nation of laws, laws grounded in principle. One of those principles is an individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty, the 5th and 6th Amendment speak directly to this improper action. Especially since Mr Romney has filed his taxes and the governing body, (the IRS) has found no fault with his returns. The burden of proof lies upon the accuser. So Mr. Reid, put your proof where your mouth is, it's not Mr. Romney's responsibility to defend himself against your imaginary friend's attacks.
The point of all of this is simple. If a group of people act in this manner toward fellow citizens, what's to keep them from turning on you in this manner too? The only solution is to remove the threat from a position of influence. They simply don't understand the principles this nation is grounded upon, nor do they care. They are drunk with power. They have forgotten that the power comes from the people, and they only exist at the will of the people. This must come to an end.
