The Gibbs Perspective
Sometimes, you have to take a leap of faith, first. I believe we can turn this country around and return it to the principles contained within the United States Constitution. But, we must be aware of who, and what, we are up against. It will get worse before it gets better.
The republic that was America has been invaded by something worse than socialism. Those in power largely are there for the power or the money. Many, however, are there for an agenda. The ends justifies the means, and that is why President Obama does not even wince when he tramples the Constitution with unlawful executive orders, and Hillary Clinton doesn't understand what the big deal is about regarding the confidential emails on her own server. They believe they are above the law, and their illegal actions are good ones if for the advancement of their statist agenda.
The United States Constitution is seen by these people as being an obstacle, and an outdated way of doing things that never worked in the first place. These people are the King Henry's and King George's who believed that people are too stupid to take care of themselves. Self-reliance and the consent of the governed is a mistake, and localism is a joke. The general will of the people is something that the people are incapable of understanding, and therefore it must be forced upon them by a ruling elite who alone are capable of understanding what is beneficial for the ultimate common good.
The Framers called it utopianism, and collectivism. In today's language we call these people Marxists, socialists, communists, fascists, progressives and liberals. In reality, they are something worse. At least Karl Marx, as flawed as his thinking was, believed that eventually in a communal society, government would no longer be necessary and would fade away. These people relish big government, and expects government to "provide" in a never-ending overreach that expands and expands and will never be satisfied with the amount of control it has over the people. With today's statists, there is no end to what the government can do.
How much is enough government to today's liberal left Democrats?
Always just a little bit more.
And, any threat to that expansion of big government, be it the Constitution, conservatives, Christians, the Republican Party, the Tea Party, or any other kind of "right-wing" thinking must either change their thinking and join the statists, or be eliminated. After all, limited government to the statists is practically anarchy.
