What Would the Founder’s do?

feeble executive implies a feeble execution of the government. A feeble execution is but another phrase for a bad execution and a government ill executed, whatever may be its theory, must be, in practice, a bad government.” Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 70 in 1788.

One has just got to love the musings of Alexander Hamilton as he so eloquently stated whilst trying to get the U.S. Constitution ratified by all 13 colonies. Those were indeed very traumatic times for the “United States of America” in as much as most of the colonies had more money and industry than did the federal government. Moreover, the assumption of letting their power be subject to either a feeble government or an “inactive” one was not particularly popular.

Interestingly as truth would have it, we wonder how Arizona is feeling about now? How about California, Texas, New Mexico, and Minnesota? More than just these states we also wonder how each and every citizen of our great nation is doing as well. Why? It’s not easy when one wants to put their hope and faith in sound leadership. However, when “upright leadership” goes the way our current government has gone people get angst, nervous, and destitute.

If one could just reflect for a moment on how our current leadership is never wrong no matter what the issue let’s blame the guy before us; or have you noticed the spike in racial tension; maybe you remember that we have a Commander-in-Chief that sold us out in Berlin? Our President has sided against every principle that the people of this country overwhelm their Congressional members with letters, faxes, and petitions. Who knows what religion Barack Obama practices? Who knows how many religions Barack Obama practices? Call a member of law enforcement disparaging names only to look like the complete fool while drinking that beer in the newly constructed Bistro Gardens on the White House grounds. Now what’s left? Speaking out on support of the Mosque at Ground Zero.

Yet the reckless disregard this person has for America is disgraceful. Who appoints “Czars” knowing full well that those he’s surrounded himself with will not pass any congressional vetting? What I understand Alexander Hamilton to be saying in the Federalist Papers is that bad government will beget bad government: It certainly wouldn’t be right to blame the woes and unscrupulous acts committed by Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) on Obama; however, it is not too inconceivable to think that with hundreds of billions of dollars flowing like a river that Rep. Maxine Waters may have thought “…he’ll never notice…” Seriously folks with the track record of our Congress and ethics we are not sure if there is one person who hasn’t become a victim to the money pressing machines.

Finally everyone seems to want to weigh-in on immigration issues and that’s just fine. “America is a land of immigrants” – in reality is for people who are not students of history, and are simply catching the latest cliché. All a part of the spin of diversion. The following is a quote from the Honorable James Madison:

In 1794, when Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief of French refugees who fled from insurrection in San Domingo to Baltimore and Philadelphia, James Madison stood on the floor of the House to object saying, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” – James Madison, 4th Annals of congress 179 (1794).
