As a Texan, I feel betrayed.
What happened? I thought we just won an election that was supposed to put people in Washington who represent the American People – not people who support the non-American Washington establishment.
Non-American? What's a non-American?
It's become popular to categorize anyone who seems to dispute the values of America as anti-American. But in most cases, that is a misnomer. The term anti-American implies an open hatred for and an active desire to destroy America and all it stands for. Psychopathic Ward Churchill and Communistic Bill Ayers are anti-Americans. But they are rare. Very few Americans are anti-American.
A highly notable exception, of course, is Barack Hussein Obama Mr. Obama is rabidly anti-American. He's anti-American because he was raised by anti-Americans, because and was mentored by anti-Americans in Hawaii and in Chicago, because he subscribes to a virulently anti-American quasi religion called Islam – and because his puppet master George Soros is compulsively anti-American.
There is, however, another class of Americans who could be described as un-American. Un-Americans don't hate America, they are simply dissatisfied with the American status quo. They don't necessarily want to change it – they just want to bitch about it. Notable un-Americans are Al Sharpton and Hillary Clinton.
Most of the Washington establishment, however, can be described only as non-American. They have no animosity toward America – only disinterest. It's not that they hate the American People; it's that they simply don't give a damn about them. Non-Americans are just not involved in America. Hence the term non-Americans.
Washington DC is a gigantic isolation booth. We the People send our fellow Americans there to be de-Americanized and to be insulated from the concerns and desires of the American People. The prevailing Washington philosophy is, "I'm gonna get mine and the hell with everyone else." And in most cases, "everyone else" turns out to be the American People.
Very few people have the stamina and moral fiber of a Ted Cruz or a Mike Lee to resist the temptation of easy larceny and sexual debauchery offered by Chicago on the Potomac. Non-Americanism is a pernicious and highly contagious disease, and most mortals exposed to it for long periods of time will eventually fall victim to its lure.
The obvious solution to this problem is term limits for Legislators. It was never intended by the Founders of our republic that people like Harry Reid would spend their entire lives in Washington milking the American People and embezzling from American industry. Their vision was for patriotic men to donate a few years of their lives to help manage the affairs of their fellow citizens. It is imperative that we resurrect that vision.
But we don't need an Article V Convention of States or even an amendment to the Constitution to accomplish that. All we really need to do is to vote out of office any US Senator who has been in Washington for two terms and any US Representative who has been in Washington for four terms.
Of course, that requires that you, the American People, be honest, aware, and competent in the guardianship of your freedom. And that's another of the visions of our Founders that needs to be resurrected.
