Power Warps The Human Mind

EPJ is known for keeping a sharp eye on politicians(e.g. Rand Paul and Justin Amash) who gradually take the road of compromise away from liberty. To others, it seems innocent, and is jusified as necessary, but here, we preach that once that road is chosen, it quickly becomes a very slippery slope. The politician( who originally may have had good intentions) often ends up doing tremendous harm. Continue Reading: http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2012/12/power-warps-hum...

People get on me for pointing

People get on me for pointing out how I feel Rand should be voting, but they don't understand that I hold everyone to this standard, even Thomas Jefferson! We must start realizing that these politicians are just politicians. They're not gods! They took an oath and it's our job to hold them accountable. What do you guys think?

As I see it

The Constitution is a contract that makes all elected offices sub-contractors. Their oath is their signature to follow their office duties as their contract defines. When they act outside of that, they are outlaws to the highest law of the land!

Notice where, "perjured persons", appears in the text:

"But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
*Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
*For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
*According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust." - 1 Timothy 1:8-11

Our job is more than to just elect them

We are witnesses of their oath to their Constitutional duty. When they purposely break that oath, it's up to us to call it what it is; perjury!

Everyone's feet deserve to be

Everyone's feet deserve to be held to the fire if those feet are carrying our water (hope that isn't too many metaphors in one sentence).

Mix metaphors & you might end up with a figurative jackass.

Please help those carrying water, which you all need. Be kind.

"Jackass Rabbit" : He is well named. He is just like any other rabbit, except that he is from one-third to twice as large, has longer legs in proportion to his size, and has the most preposterous ears that ever were mounted on any creature but the jackass. When he is sitting quiet, thinking about his sins, or is absent-minded... his majestic ears project him conspicuously; but the breaking of a twig will scare him nearly to death, and then he tilts his ears back gently and starts for home... But one must shoot at this creature once, if he wishes to see him throw his heart into his heels, and do the best he knows how...he lays his long ears down on his back, straightens himself out like a yard-stick every spring he makes, and scatters miles behind him with an easy indifference that is enchanting....The Secretary started him with a shot from the Colt...He dropped his ears, set up his tail, and left for San Francisco at a speed which can only be described as a flash and a vanish..."
