What is the difference between a Republican or Democratic congressman/senator? The number of nostril hairs, I guess. Our conservative elected officials, having gained the majority in the Senate, have yet to save even one constitutional or states’ rights mandate. Obama threatens, the Supreme Court snarls and these representatives whimper back from whence they ventured. Minority groups such as illegal immigrants, atheists, gays, anti-gun zealots, anti-war activists and anti-religious bigots now have more clout than the majority of Americans. Where are our conservative Republican representatives? These lawmakers have forfeited their job. Obama makes the laws. The Supreme Court is writing laws. There are now only two parts of government, the executive and judicial. The legislative branch has given its power to enact laws to the other branches. We no longer have a constitutional government envisioned by our founding fathers. The last bastion of liberty, the USA, is being squandered to socialist liberals. God help us. But, to the few remaining American patriots out there, Happy Fourth of July. Got tea??
