47% Is A Failing Grade - My Outrage



 Our elected officials in the Senate decided to take an early weekend and skip the NSA hearings on the spying of American citizens. Granted, the hearing was set for a late Thursday afternoon of 2:30 pm, and I understand that is much too late in the day for our Senators to uphold their sworn obligations (sarcasm).

The current oath for Senators that was enacted in 1884 is this:

    "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
Well, it seems to me that the 53 Senators that decided not to attend the hearing are in violation of their sworn duty. The NSA domestic spying is a clear violation of the Constitution. These 53 Senators need to be held accountable to their lack of interest in upholding the Constitution of the United States, and need to be impeached for their negligence in "faithfully discharging the duties of their office." 

Furthermore, the absence of these Senators ensured that any meaningful actions will not be taken against the NSA. The Hill was also unable to get a record of who was in attendance of these hearing. Hopefully, the negligent  Senators will be ferreted out and exposed for their lack of duty.

It is no surprise that Congress is not concerned about the citizens of these United States, but rather special interest groups and other monied interests. The inept example of government leadership is just another reason to prepare for the collapse of our society. When the producers are outnumber in the electorate, and the government is only concerned about their power, then the patriots need to take heed.

Panem et circenses, when the citizens of Rome only became interested in bread and circuses, the fall of one of the mightiest empires was all but certain. Patriots and preppers take note, prepare, and stay vigilant for I fear that the end of our empire is all but certain.

  1. Just wish there was an easier way to get them out of office.

    Have a great week!

    1. We can vote, but prepare like crazy. You have a great week too.
