…or, the USA is in the shitter.
Either is appropo, in light of the news that the FBI is recommending that no prosecution of the Arkansas Witch be pursued.
The Founders left us a Nation built on the Rule of Law, not the Rule of Men.
Today is proof that the Nation envisioned by the Founders no longer exists.
History has proven, over and over, that the lifecycle of a country is roughly 125 – 150 years, give or take.
The United States should have ceased to exist during Lincolns term, but the wrong side won that conflagration.
Rule of Law is officially dead. Its been so for quite a long time, it was just never so blatantly shoved in the faces of We the People.
The USA cannot continue as one large super-state. It was never intended to be such. The Founders were smart enough to see that the ONLY purpose for a Federal gov’t was to come to the mutual aid of neighbor states, where an attack on one was the same as an attack on all, and as a means for STATES to settle their differences in a forum of debate and openess.
Thats it. But the 14th Amendment changed that. In 1868 the idiots who passed the 14th Amendment changed the country from a Republic to a Democracy. The original Untied States lasted just a bit over 100 years before it was reformed. Now, closing in on 148 years after a *new* United States emerged from the First Civil War, that second lifecycle is coming to a close. I shudder to think of what will emerge after the next Civil War ends. And yes, there will be another civil war, because we allowed politicians free rein to corrupt and subvert the legacy that our Founders left to us.
THAT is what our Constitution is for. It is the bullwark that was supposed to keep tyrants and corrupt individuals from gaining too much power.
If we don’t split the States up into reasonably easy-to-self-govern smaller entities, the tempers will boil over, and Civil War part Duex may well be the bloodiest and most horrific conflict that this planet has yet to see.
