For the first time in Minnesota history......
the state government has shut down due to the absolute ineptitude of our elected state politicians.
I imagine that all states are similar in that in the course of state government politics it all has NOTHING to do with what's in the best interest of "we the people". They don't care about "we the people" so long as tax revenues keep coming in to feed the monster and to provide them the easy life. The "elected elite" here only care about who comes out ahead after months of childlike bickering among themselves and how long can they fool the public-at-large so they get to keep their jobs and stay on the gravytrain without really accomplishing ANYTHING!
Today's politicians see themselves as the sovereigns, the government as the sovereign. They have forgotten that it is "WE THE PEOPLE" who are sovereign and master of the governments. They have forgotten that upon election, THEY ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS. They have forgotten that they are in public service for the greater good to perform the will of the people. They have forgotten their simple-to-understand, yet powerful and restraining oath of office. They claim sovereign immunity when an attempt to hold them accountable comes to court. They are not working for us and couldn't care less about us. Do you REALLY think they are going to legislate in OUR interest? Are you naive enough to believe that they will legislate according to state and federal constitutions at the cost of administrative law? It isn't just the U.S. supreme Court that is making waves of an unconstitutional manner either. Why even the Minnesota supreme Court has forgotten to read the laws and follow state and federal constitutions. These days, even the "high" court has succumbed to assumptions of law rather than fact of law in favor of the preservation of "the good of the State" instead of the preservation of known constitutional restraints.
I absolutely do not agree with violent means to an end. But no longer would I condemn someone who took it upon themselves to eliminate elected officials at all levels and branches of government known to have forgotten their oaths and as a statement that "we the people" want our damn cities, counties, states and OUR America back! I simply couldn't condemn such person(s). Perhaps that is what will become of America in the end. I just hope I am no longer here to see it. I truly pity our posterity.
To the governor, legislators and judiciary in the republic of Minnesota, this Independence Day weekend is THE appropriate time to reflect on who are the REAL sovereigns of this state and who are the public servants.
By now I'm sure you've guessed - I'm a Pissed Off Sovereign in Minnesota!
