Since SCOTUS ruled the stolen valor act unconstitutional, and it’s now supposedly legal and Constitutional to lie about service in the military and decorations earned, can the same be said of POLITICAL service? Then I need to add congressman, senator, and president to my resume. That should be even easier since I don’t even have to be Constitutionally eligible to be president anymore. Apparently someone in your family having high cheek bones makes you a Cherokee Indian as well. So now you can call me Chief Tired of Bull. And since Rangel and Geithner, to name only two of dozens (perhaps hundreds) in the administration have demonstrated that it’s apparently OK to cheat on and not pay taxes, I guess I’m done sending any more of my money to Big Brother.
Lying and cheating are now proudly flaunted hallmarks of our government instead of shamefully hidden black marks. When our “leaders” are demonstrating that poor character is acceptable, dishonor is expected, and illegal activity is run of the mill, is it any wonder that we see the increasing move toward anarchy among the populace, which is providing cover for the construction of a totalitarian government apparatus?
