Whiny little treasonous cowards act like hapless victims after they get exposed for being Crypto-Democrats.
“At a moment when it seems that our democracy is more defined by our discord and our dysfunction than by our own values and principles, let me begin by noting the somewhat obvious point that these offices that we hold are not ours indefinitely.”
Yeah, “WE” are a Republic or a Representative Democracy. Which means that YOU are elected to EXECUTE the collective WILL of the people that voted you into office. Think of it like this. We The People hold the ultimate power and you IDIOTS that we vote into office are elected in order to pursue OUR Volition. Should you FAIL to do that you won’t get re-elected. The Congress/Senate is not a PURE OLIGARCHY(or democracy as you state it…).
Right to Rule is determined by whether the Government, by existing, creates more value for the Citizens then if it didn’t exist.
You say that you, “are not here to simply mark time.” but just like Vexatious Litigious Lawyers you make your job look very hard and charge for the most hours without getting any positive result. I invest in you with my effort and success. You repay me with your demonstration of effort and failure. Then you turn around and increase my TAXES. You tell me the in order to perform better WE must give you more control (AUTHORITY) over our Country, Constitution, Lives, Resources, Expression, Family, & Future. I am at the end of my rope or maybe, you are approaching the guillotine (metaphorically speaking of course ;).
“Sustained incumbency is certainly not the point of seeking office and there are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles. Now is such a time.”
Umm, you realized that you couldn’t get elected just as John McCain did. The only reason you started this campaign is for protecting the CRYPTO-DEMOCRATS who have been and will continue to be exposed until you agree to do your job and enforce the WILL OF THE AMERICA PEOPLE. Instead of selling us down the river to Foreign Agencies for the purpose of your Globalist NEW WORLD ORDER Agenda.
“It must also be said that I rise today with no small measure of regret. Regret because of the state of our disunion. Regret because of the disrepair and destructiveness of our politics. Regret because of the indecency of our discourse. Regret because of the coarseness of our leadership.”
First of all you aren’t rising and you haven’t risen. You are a bad actor who is dragging out your death scene. You are regretting the smallness of your current and future fan base. The fan base that doesn’t exist because you represented yourself falsely. While appealing to one group you were cheating on them, hoping to usurp them with another fan base.
“Regret for the compromise of our moral authority, and by our, I mean all of our complicity in this alarming and dangerous state of affairs. It is time for our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable to end. In this century, a new phrase has entered the language to describe the accommodation of a new and undesirable order, that phrase being the new normal.”
