“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted ....”
Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28
There is no question that our government has betrayed their constituents. The irresponsible fiscal policies, endless scandals and unConstitutional acts/executive orders have put law abiding people under the chains of tyranny. One of the major causes of this situation is the democratic process to elect our "representatives" to the Constitutional Republic. The number of people who have sold their vote (and our Liberty) for entitlements is evil. Enslaving others through redistribution for your own self-interest is evil.
But can evil be quantified in our case? Someone who has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution and then supports tyranny is also evil. The Southern border crisis manufactured by our "government" would never happen if our soldiers and law enforcement officers would uphold the Constitution. Any one who supports illegal acts by submitting to intimidation is a coward. A paycheck to support your family is no excuse to submit to tyranny. Are you really supporting your family by guaranteeing their enslavement? Does any law abiding American really not see the consequences of supporting evil?
So who is more evil: someone who passively endorses tyranny by selling their vote or someone who hides in shame and actively supports tyranny? I do not understand why our border guards do not speak up concerning the immigration camp conditions. We are no longer the America given to us by the sacrifices of our forefathers. Can anyone imagine trying to justify their actions on Judgment Day? Just doing my job was not an excuse at the Nuremberg Trials. When the administration's blackout on the border crisis is breached, it will not be an excuse in the future.
