Only 8% of Americans believe that Congress is doing a good job. Yet, in less than two weeks, a majority of these underperforming political hacks will be returned to office.
Why? The short answer is: The system has been rigged.
Today, both the U.S. Congress and the president routinely exempt themselves (and their officers) from the laws they inflict on Americans. Once in office, they’re all granted immunity to what you and I must live and abide by.
But Senator Rand Paul has found a way to beat this two-tiered system, stripping Congress of its superpowers…
A Rising Class of Villains
A privileged class is growing before our eyes. The great perversion started when Corporate America (and related special interests) hired hordes of lobbyists to rewrite the laws of the land for the benefit of a few interested parties.
The result is a world in which most members of Congress, as well as their administrative officials, go directly from the halls of government to jobs of influence peddling. In fact, if one seeks a successful political career, influence peddling or lobbying has become the lucrative way-stop.
Subsequently, the incumbent class of Congressional leaders is protected from any changes.
Of course, this isn’t what our Founding Fathers envisioned for the United States of America…
Our Republic, a place where free people largely governed themselves, is dead. And all that remains of the system are the vestiges. We sing and honor the same flag, our president lives in the same house, our legislators meet in the same Capitol Building, but the federalist republic is gone.
If you take the time to read the old documents written by our Founding Fathers, the charges against King George apply equally today to the Obama administration and our rubber-stamp Congress, as they did in the 18th century…
Consider this line from our Declaration of Independence: “He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”
You see, the system that our Founders built is completely corrupted. It no longer resembles even a shadow of its former self, and the potential of this outcome was the Fathers’ greatest worry.
As Madison pointed out, “If we don’t provide against corruption, our government will soon be at an end.”
Unfortunately, Mr. Madison, America’s government has reached that point.
Rand Paul Constitutional Amendment
But, luckily for us, Senator Rand Paul is fighting to re-establish that public virtue.
He’s introduced a simple amendment to the U.S. Constitution that states: “Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress.”
Though the wording is simple, the change could have a profound impact.
You see, the real key to fixing America is through good old-fashioned pen and paper. Even if Republicans gain a majority in the U.S. Senate in November, that alone won’t change much. Instead, Rand Paul’s idea is an important first step to making real change.
Support the amendment. Support America.
