Obey the rules?

Post  Swampguy on Wed Sep 28, 2016 2:55 pm

This is just routine Chicago city politics, brought to Washington DC by Obama and friends.

We as a people COULD change this by NOT promoting liars, and crooks to higher office - like the presidency....It IS up to us.



A Sporting Event Where Only One Team Obeys the Rules

By Jeffrey T. Brown

From childhood, we have had ingrained in us that in order for interactions between people to work, especially competitive interactions, everyone has to “follow the rules”. The reason we have rules is that we have people, and people are sometimes dishonest cheats. The rules are put in place to prevent the dishonest cheats from winning unfairly, because they are despicable thieves who would steal what rightfully belongs to someone else.

Nobody likes a cheat, except perhaps other cheats or those who stand to share in what the cheater steals from the honest participant. That is, nobody with an ounce of integrity, understanding the inevitability of chaos if half of all participants in an event are permitted to cheat, would agree to participate. Therefore, any system which is premised upon rules requires that independent arbiters, acting without bias and favoritism, intercede to enforce the rules so that each contest is determined by merit, rather than fraud and intimidation. This is called “integrity”.

Unfortunately, when the referees belong to the same organization, or “team”, as the half of the participants in an event who cheat, the system is no longer effective. Indeed, when the half that cheats has become so comfortable with cheating and lying and stealing that they have no reason or intention to stop, because there is no cost to them as long as their cronies remain in charge, the risk is that the rule-followers will never again know what it is like to have an event in which they have any hope or chance of not only competing, but sometimes winning.

After eight years of the most blatant and obvious corruption, we watch current events as if we have a splinter in our eye. An entire political party is so morally bankrupt that it no longer feels any need to hold its members to any rules at all. And yet, it controls the enforcement of the rulebook, and zealously enforces those rules against anyone who doesn’t belong to their lawless team. They do this smugly and self-righteously, as if it is their right and privilege to screw millions of people who follow the rules and believe that a society can only survive it its rules are followed by all, and enforced equally against all.

This is the only kind of fairness that the Constitution contemplated, because it is the only kind that man can control. One man cannot control whether another man with free will makes choices that will prove successful. We are not born owing what we will someday earn to morons who are too careless or brainwashed to make wise choices. As if to stand the theory of evolution on its head, Democrats exist to show us that Darwin was wrong. People do not evolve. They do not improve or adapt to better function in the ecosystem. No matter how much time goes by, humans will always have among them the cheats, the thieves, and the losers. We will always have among us the humans whose nature is dark and evil, those who are incapable or unwilling to place their self-interest behind the concept of a greater good. The world is their oyster, and they intend to steal every pearl they see.

At present, the Democratic party and its membership, particularly in positions of authority and in media, is participating in events as actors unbounded by any rule or law. The IRS commissioner still uses the IRS to target conservatives. The Obama administration is literally turning illegal aliens into citizens to unlawfully alter the outcome of the upcoming election, as Democrats have always done. They are rewarding criminals with early release from prison and restored voting rights simply to tip the scales. They are flooding our country with Muslim Syrians, whose culture is antithetical to ours, knowing the inevitable outcome will be an eventual conflict between those who believe in forcefully imposing Islamic theocracy and those few who still know and believe in the American Constitution. They are making secret alliances with our enemies, or merely surrendering to them out of abject cowardice or belief in common principles. They protect terrorists, who are the ultimate rule-breakers, while demonizing Americans, who cannot figure out what they may have done wrong, having done nothing but exist.

No matter which side of the aisle you are on, it is undeniable that any system that is premised upon rules will fail and break apart when one side gleefully cheats with impunity, but the other side is punished. You would not tolerate this if it was your own child’s sporting event, or one in which you had agreed to compete. You would not peacefully watch a professional event if one team got to do whatever it wanted, while the other team was policed by the cheats. Such an event would unnaturally reward vice and criminality, while punishing integrity.

At present, the Democratic party is the most successful example of a criminal enterprise that we have in this country. The Mafia was never as large and powerful as the Democratic party, but they were at least more honest. They never swore an oath to uphold the law and not enrich themselves with the property of others. There was no public trust betrayed. They pretended to be businessmen, but not to be public servants in order to gain control over the treasury and the arbitrary enforcement of laws against only their enemies.

The last eight years have been about building the brand, honing and perfecting the fraud, constructing the perfect machine with which to destroy what is left of a system of laws, rights and duties. The left believes in none of those concepts, or they would abide by them. They believe the lie of their own superiority and deformed morality. Hillary Clinton believes that disagreement with her is deplorable and irredeemable. She will rule as a tyrant, as spiteful and vengeful as any before her who was slowed by her enemies. Her objective is to utterly destroy the last vestiges of honor and integrity that made this country exceptional.

One thing is certain. We cannot construct a new framework with the Left or its amoral members, just as we would not form a business or marriage or friendship with someone we know we can never trust or respect. Besides, they will try to revive the solutions of Leftist history before they will allow us freedom, from them and for ourselves.
