The Clue Phone is Ringing

For any of you out there in the ether, who still believe that we live in a country with even some semblance of what it was designed to be, should answer the clue phone.
This country was supposed to be a Constitutional Republic. The elected leaders chosen by the citizens were to be bound by the Constitution to do only those things which it allowed.

For the last fifty years we have had much closer to a democratic social welfare state. Where the majority demand something and the elected leadership respond by handing out OPM (other peoples money). So if you wanted something real bad, you just had to get the majority to go along with you.

But today, we have now progressed into some sort of bastardized oligarchy


1. Government by a few, especially by a small faction of persons or families.
2. Those making up such a government.
2. A state governed by a few persons.

Read this from WIRED,

An aide in the office of Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday that the senator has received more than 91,000 e-mails, calls and letters regarding the legislation. Ninety-four percent of the authors of those notes were against the bill.

On the right, FreedomWorks, a conservative nonprofit, created the website, and has collected 41,415 names and statements from people who oppose it.

Widespread anger and opposition to the Senate's imminent approval of the Bush Administration's bailout proposal continued to spread online and overwhelm congressional offices in a flood of e-mails, faxes and phone calls on Wednesday.

And what did they do, were they bound by the Constitution?

Did they respond to the majority of the people?

No. They voted by a margin of 74 -25 to do what they want. Your opinion and the Constitution are completely ignored.

And for those of you still under the illusion that Juan Mc-Mark-O'Cain is somehow more conservative and different than BarelyBlack Hussein Obamba, well guess what, they both voted for the thing. Now there's a real conservative for ya. A man of principle, a man willing to take the hard position, a maverick, just like Barry Boy.

Update, And just a personal note to Senator Grassley, "Dude, you failed to pass the conservative/constitutional test, I will never vote for you again. As far as I'm concerned the Repugnant Party better start looking for your replacement, cause I'll do everything I can to see you lose."
