In a brazen exercise of DoubleThink during his speech to Congress, President Joe Biden claimed, “It’s time we remembered that ‘We the People’ are the government. You and I.” He reverses the meaning to transform the role of government to become ruler of the people.
Biden hyperbolically called the January 6th, breach of the Capitol “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.” He overlooked segregation, two world wars, a great depression, leftists bombing the Senate in 1983, assassinations and even attempted assassination of the Republican softball team, amongst other assaults.
Even so, Biden doesn’t give his administration enough credit. He should have led with undermining the Constitution with Executive Order overreach destined to impoverish our children. Biden has now signed more executive orders (41) than each of the last three presidents in their first 100 days, surpassing Trump (25), Obama (19), and Bush (11). He, along with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer created an imperial executive.
Biden leftists believe government should control all aspects of individual lives through heavy bureaucratic regulation, intrusive taxation, politicized agencies, usurped control of elections, managed access to information through activist media corporations, and federal control of school curricula.
The Founders established federalism to limit the scope of central government, and now Biden’s Department of Education is reaching down to the local level to dictate what our children should learn. Far better we should teach them to read, encourage why they should value reading, and let them grow to be independent individuals, not cogs in Biden’s centralized collective wheel.
Biden claims, “We have to prove democracy still works, that our government still works and we can deliver for our people,” while doing everything to replace representative democracy with autocracy. Biden leftists are racing before the mid-term elections to impose their audacious expansion of the federal government through unsustainable spending increases financed by $6 trillion of debt, and yet Biden shill CNN still calls that “moderate radicalism.”
Frédéric Bastiat in 1848 wrote, “For ourselves, we consider that Government is and ought to be nothing whatever but the united power of the people, organized, not to be an instrument of oppression and mutual plunder among citizens; but, on the contrary, to secure to every one his own, and to cause justice and security to reign.”
Blogger Michael Smith quoted Bastiat to expose Democrats’ belief that social bribery is a workable plan. Bastiat said, “Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.”
The only success over time the leftist Democrat leadership will have will be to drive local Democrats away from a party they no longer recognize or trust. Working people and those looking for jobs are turning to those who embrace individual responsibility and community for which America has always stood.
