There, I guess King George will be able to read that. John Hancock
A second commentary was not planned for today but that changed after receipt of an email from a Marine friend.
The note, plugging a candidate (too, a Marine - Jack Bergman) for Congress, ended with an attached pdf - our Declaration of Independence.
I read it twice.
And thought about it awhile in context to current events.
Is there anyone naive enough to believe, for an instant, that Barack Obama did not know, beforehand, of that meeting last week at the Phoenix airport between his Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a predecessor of his office President Bill Clinton?
Where is Congress?
Where is the citizenry?
Fact is we are a country in crisis.
And within our Declaration of Independence rests remedy - the citizenry's duty...
"... That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness ... But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
That is clear enough.
Barack Obama should be arrested and charged with, at a minimum pending investigation, obstruction of justice and abetting a criminal.
And a new (temporary) Guard provided - until we clean house and provide new Guards.
Simple as that.
That, too, is clear enough.
There, though no John Hancock, short and sweet so people will read.
Now, see the post script for a link to our Declaration of Independence. And the link to support a Marine determined to change the Guards - before we do so with gunfire.
