Liberal networks rejoiced about the end of the recent government shutdown, singing the praises of Obama. They salivated, licking their chops, as they hunted Republicans spear in hand. The conservative networks, with debt clock displayed, worried about the consequences of the bill that re-opened the government, tossing an obligatory jab at Ted Cruz. Though the conservative networks were more mild mannered and on target, both contingencies neglected a critical aspect of the event — what was in the bill? No one seemed to know at the time. One news anchor suggested that the final bill contained income validation for those applying for Obamacare subsidies. Yet, when he asked the veteran reporter what else was in it, the reporter replied with “uhmmm, I don’t know….” and deftly changed the subject.

The consequences of this lack of knowledge, brought on by a mammoth, incomprehensible government, are dangerous and devastating. American politics has become a caricature, a shell, of what it should be – lacking character. American governing has become a comedy of errors in a Shakespearean tragedy.

The American people, like sheep walking through the valley of debt, have been misled by a faction of miscreants — miscreants who have raided and neglected the goodwill and trust of the American people for selfish reasons. They, and the apparatuses that aid and abet them, have been keeping Americans in the shadow of darkness.

Ironically, even with all the social media, radio and television shows, the American people are living in the political dark ages. Who truly understands anything that is happening in Washington, D.C.? James Madison predicted the dire repercussions of such obscurity in Federalist 62. He prophesied that if the laws were too voluminous and too incoherent, a republic couldn’t stand. If no one understood the laws, it would be irrelevant to elect men of our own choice. Why indeed? It is futile to elect men of our own choice if we cannot, and even they cannot, understand what laws they are promulgating.

Some of this deceit has been inherited and some is currently perpetuated by design. Both parties are responsible for the ancestral paper trail from hell. Now, however, only Republicans are trying to own it and do something about it — and something has to be done about it. The time has come for the TRUTH.

Biden bit into the blame game again regarding the government shutdown. He had the gall to blame Republicans for endangering the full faith and credit of the United States. Really? Let’s get real. The ones who are endangering the full faith and credit of the United States are the Democrats. With full-throttle determination they are ruining American credit with debt and impairing Americans’ safety with loans from foreign countries. It is the Democrats who are endangering the full faith and credit of the United States by denying that spending is out of control and that the entitlements are in dire need of reform. Denying the debt, ignoring the vulnerabilities of foreign influence, engineering even more entitlements, artificially stimulating the marketplace, printing more money, usurping one-fifth of the economy — and perpetuating unemployment — with Obamacare are not the acts of protecting the full faith and credit of the United States. These are the acts that demoralize the full faith and credit of the United States and these are acts that demoralize Americans. These are acts that are deceitful to Americans. These are acts that are derelict of American duty.
