We The People

Our government is actually a collection of people operating fairly anonymously behind the cloak of that moniker. In their anonymity they act without direct responsibility or accountability to the citizens at large.
Thus, the anonymous can make decisions, influence policy and trade favors in order to effect their personal agenda. For the most part, they have collectively betrayed the trust and confidence of “we the people.” And the people are virtually powerless to stop the momentum of an increasingly intrusive government invading privacy, restricting rights and denying access.
The vote has become the child of the dollar, domestic and foreign, and is more readily influenced by those in power rather than the minority who actually vote. The open gates of immigration expose the country to undue influence on free enterprise, drain resources without corresponding contribution and expose national security to enormous risk. At the same time, many want to disarm the citizenry, increase police power and reduce the size of the military.
While the beliefs of Christianity are oppressed by any segment with a contrary belief system, a high school in Fort Collins Colorado recited the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic and changed “God” to “Allah.”
The intelligence and enforcement communities have done a commendable job of detecting and deterring terrorist intrusions. But Boston happened. It will not be the last attempt. And likely, it will not be the last very unfortunate success.
The conclusion then would be that “we the people” are subject to attack from without, and within. As German citizens did long before WWII, it seems Americans, for the most part, have turned an apathetic eye. Chaos looms. The question then remains, “Who will rescue the most powerful nation when it falls?”
