There is NO distinction between the First Amendment
and the Second.
One enforces, and reinforces the other. Either direction.
The Patrons of "America" Can Do Whatever The Hell They Want To Do
Hillary can't make House hearing on Benghazi; busy visiting friends, wine tasting in Australia...
They have no allegiance to the Constitution, or the process of Justice.
And no one will hold them to account for it.
Our Attorney General has been in Contempt of Congress for months now, and nothing is happening.
Our President passed the Dream Act by Executive fiat, bypassing Congress entirely. And, he was rewarded with a Second Term by the people of "America".
Etc. Etc. Etc.
We are no longer represented by our Patrons. They just give us Food Stamps and Free Phones and we're expected to keep quiet.
This is what I call "A Long Train of Abuses."
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
