FRED THOMPSON IS BACK -- WHO CARES?
EXPANDING GOVERNMENT POWERS WITH THE REMOVAL OF ONE SINGLE WORD

HOW FAR SHOULD THE MAJORITY ACCEDE TO MINORITY RIGHTS?

A hidden government crisis...

We are now facing a major government crisis, a crisis of monumental proportions and one that has never been faced before.

A coalition of cross-purposes...

I am speaking of a government, including local state and federal levels, that is controlled by self-serving bureacrats and a coalition of minorities, none of which has the ability to win on their own and whose desires seem to be the increased empowerment of their special interest constituents rather than the overall welfare of the United States and its legal citizens.

The laboratory called California...

In California, long considered, for better or worse, the front-runner of societal trends, we are seeing the rise of Hispanic politicians who seem to have an allegiance to Mexico, a sovereign nation whose political policy seems to be exporting their sick, impoverished and ill-educated  population to the United States. Whether for the purposes of securing future voters under some form of amnesty or securing a lower-wage unionized labor pool which can be manipulated for unionized political power, decisions by Hispanic legislators and their supporters seem to be complicit in destroying the California's healthcare, education, judicial, retirement, social and cultural infrastructure. The majority interests are being overridden on behalf of the interests of the minority.

Black versus Hispanic...

Again, turning to California, we can see the demographic results of encroaching minorities. Here in Los Angeles, we see two Black candidates for the position of County Supervisor in a rapidly changing area who cannot agree on much of anything other than this might be the last Black Supervisor elected in this changing district. No matter who says what, the pre-election pronouncements by both candidates are pandering to their racial base for support, while seeking another manageable minority to make the election difference. Their campaigns do not seem to be a wide appeal to the large base of legal citizens, but to minorities and the trade unions which capitalize on the increased representation of lower-wage minorities.

Minorities everywhere...

In one city, an extremely small minority is petitioning the court to halt the build-out of a large scale wireless Internet infrastructure on the grounds that they are allergic to wireless signals and should be protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

In another venue, a United States District Judge has ordered the Treasury Department to develop paper money that is more recognizable to blind Americans.

Or is it liberals with a hidden agenda?

In some instances, it is avaricious class action attorneys creating victims to fuel litigation which produces large paydays for the litigators and little or nothing for those who have been treated shabbily.

But, in a greater number of cases, we find far-left liberals appealing to activist judges to secure victories which would be more assuredly denied them at the ballot box. All based on some slight that is being used to, in effect, use behavior modification techniques to alter the nature of a legal citizens daily life.

We are often forced to pay more for water due to restrictions to protect a small fish which is thought to being endangered -- although no one really knows what is causing a decline in the fish population.

We are denied cheaper nuclear energy in the face of rising oil prices because the far-left liberals are ostensibly interested in weakening our military and deathly afraid of nuclear proliferation. Or is it that they want to reduce the quality of life in the United States to more nearly match the rest of the world? To allow the United States to devolve into a nation that would more readily accept a pro-Marxist stand to "collectively" make things better for all citizens.

The democrats...

Nowhere else do we see the confluence of far-left liberal politics, social engineering and pro-Marxist philosophy than in the democrat party. Both of the current presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are vying to see which one can provide the greatest benefits to the greatest number of voters. In essence, doing what politicians have done for decades, buying votes and influence with public dollars. Both candidates are bald-faced liars as they claim to be above racial, ethnic and gender appeals. The democrat party, more than any other party has corrupted certain minority leaders into acting as Judas goats -- leading their constituencies down a pre-ordained path for little or no real return in effecting change in the minority communities.

United we stand, divided we are bled by politicians...

It is about time that the legal citizens of the United States overlook their own personal traits and background and elect leaders who will represent all of the legal citizens. Elected officials who will metaphorically raise all boats, no matter the construction or color, to new heights by raising the level of the seas.

Politicians who do more for the people than continuously campaign for office to secure their personal power, prestige and profits.

It is about time for the minority viewpoint to be respected, but NOT to the point of grossly interfering with the rights of the majority. And for the evil-minded among you, I refer not specifically to racial, ethnic and sexist minorities, but to all minorities including those based on far-left Marxist political leanings, those who want to subvert science for their own causes and those who demand that we act accordingly to promote world harmony. Minorities of every stripe, color, type and texture.

It is time to halt the balkanization of the United States into manageable sub-groups and return to the position that we are all legal Americans and we live in the United States.

With a culture that respects the rights of an individual over the rights of the "collective." And while it sounds somewhat contradictory, it can be achieved more easily by reducing the interference of all levels of government in our lives and by promoting equality under the law. Law which should not be used to grant special privileges for any group of people for any reason. Laws which are subverted by the legal profession to create meritless litigation for the purposes of personal enrichment. Individuals should be allowed to do anything which does not disrupt the general order of the community and which is legally permissible under our Constitution and State laws.

What can YOU do?

You are an American first. If you wish to be something else, try the country of your choice. 

Avoid thinking like a victim. If you feel that you have a legitimate case of discrimination, deal with it on an individual level. Do not involve your fellow citizens in individual problems by escalating every perceived wrong to a federal or class action lawsuit. That is to say, feel free to collectively air your grievance -- but make sure that it is a true grievance and not some imagined slight.

Vote for honest politicians (if there is such a thing) who profess to work for the people -- all the people.

For those who vote while thinking that "it is now our turn to plunder the public's pocketbook and wield political power," concentrate on being of service to your fellow citizens rather than trying to legally rob them of the fruits of their hard-earned labor.

In the final analysis, everyone is a minority of one, so concentrate on improving your own achievements rather than trying to reduce those of others or benefit from their labor.

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.
