Are we enjoying playing this political Monopoly House Rules version of our government and democracy. Our delusions have reached a level totally unprecedented in our history, the susceptibility of our government to this type of corruption and control disqualifies it as any valid form of government.
Our government was designed to be free of all this nonsense between parties and individuals! The Senate was designed specifically for continuity and stability of government, legislative checks and balances, and as the predominant governing institution and the Established Government Authority. The Senate is the embodiment of our democracy, all the States are assembled as equals with equal suffrage to reach a majority consensus of all the States as the Union, a discrete democracy of the States assembled in a congress to make the collective choices and decisions of a free and independent state; levying war, concluding peace, contracting alliances, establishing commerce, and any other Acts or Things which an independent state may by right do; and the Senate was designed to establish and assemble all executive departments, under their direction, to manage the general affairs of their Union.
If you have actually read Federalist #’s 62-66, “The Senate”, Madison, Jay, and Hamilton respectively, c.1788, you would know the purpose of the Senate, how the Senate is assembled, how power is distributed through rights of suffrage, and how the Senate, a democracy, functions by a legislative process of consensus choice.
“A Democracy” is a legislative assembly, “Democracy” is how that legislative assembly is formed and how it functions to reach a majority consensus of all the States as the Union, and that legislative process is consensus choice where a quorum of the members, the States, identify and rank choices forming a ballot for the members to consider and make a choice by vote, 1 vote per member, the States, and a majority of all the States is necessary to the choice.
There also cannot be “rule of law” if valid laws cannot be made and agreed to by those governed by those laws, and that requires that the legislative assembly must be properly formed, as an assembly of the States as equals with equal suffrage, that a quorum of the States assemble to identify and rank the parameters of the law, which is based upon a cost benefit analysis, and that after deliberations the law is adopted by a majority of all the States as the Union. To constitute means to form or assemble, and the only thing formed and assembled by the Constitution of the United States is congress as a legislative assembly of the States governed by legislative processes to reach a majority consensus of all the States, the people are not governed, the collective decision making of the States as then union is governed and the governor is the legislative processes to reach a majority consensus of all the States as the Union.
If we exams more closely the RICO indictment, we find RICO is not a valid law, it was originally created to use against the Mafia, people like Al Capone, who they got on tax evasion because they couldn’t pin anything else on him.
But tax evasion is a fallacy, constitutionally only the States pay federal taxes and they must always be per capita equal for each State. This situation is based upon a fallacy as well, because only the States choose the President of the United States, and again each State must nominate a number of qualified candidates equal to 2x the whole number of Senators and Representatives each State [May] be entitled in the congress, which is the whole number of representatives which does not exceed 1 representative for every 30,000 persons who reside within each State, plus 2 for each State’s Senators, not 538!
No one can declare their candidacy, win a party’s nomination, choose a running mate, because the President and Vice President are chosen in identical independent simultaneously concurrent elections, win a States electoral college votes winner takes all based upon competitive partisan popular elections, because each State appoints electors that vote, they do not have electoral college votes, and win the presidency.
And since the indictments are based upon a fallacy, they are invalid, totally frivolous! Instead of trying to perpetuate this bastardized system which is totally unconstitutional, maybe they should reinstitute the constitutional electoral process established in Article 2 Section 1 and the 12th amendment of the Constitution of the United States, then none of this chaos and corruption could even take place, because the constitutional mode of selecting the president is well guarded, there is no possibility of influence, interference, or corruption of any kind, and it’s impossible for any faction, our political parties, to raise one of their own to the presidency!
This is just another dog and pony show that even if they convict all that are involved it will do absolutely nothing to change the totally bastardized system that created the environment where this corruption was allowed to take place!
