Dear Editor --
The interesting thing about propaganda, it doesn’t have to be credible to be effective. All it takes is a lot of citizens that are gullible and uninformed.
At this point in time we all want “change”, the tricky part is getting change in the right direction. The Russians wanted “change” and they got Stalin; The Germans wanted “change” and they got Hitler; The Cubans wanted “change” and they got Castro, bloody dictators all!
That’s not suppose to happen here because we have a Constitution and a congress with power to impeach a president. It comes down to the fact that congressmen and woman’s decisions are more important than presidents. But, if a Congressman will NOT uphold and follow the Constitution he is simply rolling out the red carpet for a dictator.
I’ve taken 10 very important issues from the 110th Congress, and grading on whether or not the constitution authorizes such legislation and found the California delegation voted only 27.6% constitutionally.
Broken down by party, Republicans voted 54.68% constitutional, and the Democrats really looked bad with only 12.47% constitutional. But it even gets worse, our Congressman, Mr. Costa, on the same 10 issues voted wrong every time, 0%constitutional. He voted contrary to his oath of office on all 10 issues.
I have never understood why Representatives, or their constituents would vote to weaken or degrade the governmental system that has produced the most prosperous society the world has ever seen! But that’s what is happening!
