Fairly lengthy read, but very interesting. I doubt this will happen, but it does put an interesting fly in the ointment.

I did not know that RNC delegates are NOT bound to vote for the winner of the state primaries.

Three other credible sources confirm delegate Curly Haugland's claim that all delegates are super delegates and are not bound. They have been unbound with the exception on 1976. Go figure!

And this is why I am not voting:

He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of this country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man ….The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people.

- Samuel Adams
 
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES I have lost count of the number of times people who work for Donald Trump have “defended” him by saying, “Listen, he doesn’t mean these crazy things he says.” That’s not historically been something that has commended Presidential candidates to the embrace of the American public, when that’s the best thing you can say about your candidate.

+Annie Oakley Thank you, Annie for catching that. I had meant to say "voting for him" I actually do plan to write-in Cruz. for exactly those reasons; following my conscience and voting for one that follows my ideals and morals, and not for everyone, just to "beat Clinton". Thanks Annie! :-)

The Corruption of the Republic... No, the Other One.

h/t to +Azure Mallone​​​​​ on a recent post on government corruption.

One of the most powerful politicians in the era of corruption, Marcus Licinius Crassus (115-53 B.C.), not surprisingly was also one of the richest Romans. Born into a wealthy family, he acquired his riches, according to Plutarch, through "fire and rapine." Crassus became so powerful that he financed the army that put down the slave revolt led by Spartacus. To celebrate Spartacus's crucifixion, Crassus hosted a banquet for the entire voting public of Rome (10,000 people) that lasted for several days. Each participant was also given an allowance of three months of grain. His ostentatious displays gave us the word crass.

Crassus made a fortune in real estate by controlling Rome's only fire department acquiring the land from property owners victimized by fire.. When a fire broke out, a horse drawn water tank was dispatched to the site, but before fire was put out, Crassus or one of his representatives haggled over the price of his services, often while the house was burning down before their eyes. To save the building Crassus often required the owner to fork over title to the property and then pay rent.

Does this sound like anyone we know? "There is nothing new under the sun"

Crassus was most likely the largest property owner in Rome. He also purchased property with money obtained through underhanded methods. While serving as a lieutenant in the civil war of 88-82 he able to buy land formally held by the enemy at bargain prices, sometimes by murdering its owners. Crassius also opened a profitable training center for slaves. He purchased unskilled bondsmen, trained them and then sold them as slaves for a handsome profit.

Roman males aged 14 to 60 paid a poll tax. There were also property taxes, tariffs, special pig taxes and taxes for everything that was registered. There were crop registries, animal registries, craftsmen and tradesman registries. Even prostitutes had to register (a surviving one'day permit for a prostitute named Aphrodite allowed her "to go to bed with whoever you wish on this date")

Children were registered and "house-by-house registration," a sort of financial census, was established to keep tabs on everybody and make sure they paid their taxes. Births were registered and landlords were required to provide detailed information on the occupants of their dwelling that included parentage, age, profession, tax status and information on the property they owned.

Sound like politicians and current government we know?

Bottom line, Rome fell, nothing could stop it. What say you about the American Republic?

Many points I agree with, but I still believe John Adams was correct in his statement about our Constitution was intended for a moral people. Two branches are corrupted by wealth, power, or both. The Third Branch, slipping further and further from the mortar that this federal republic was founded on. I don't see this as a wave from bad times to good times; but as a waterfall.

I see the positive influence and the acts that make us great, not by the government as a whole, but by the people at the smallest village.

I see the system sliding deeper, and the ideals that created this nation, coming to a boiling point.

Time will tell

Reaching the masses, is going to be a difficult task. It may or may not require blood, but definitely will require wise and Deep council, with great patience and determination. - Me


If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.

Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.

North Carolina governor prepares for Justice Department deadline on bathroom privacy law
The importance of this really can not be overstated. If the Justice Department wins - it will mean that two memos from the Obama Administration can be used to redefine law, and force federal redefinition on the states.

If you think this is about gays or something, you're not paying attention.

This is about the Executive Branch telling states what they must and must not do, with NO oversight, and NO pushback allowed.

Read the article to understand.

For all the trump sycophants, change all instances of Trump in the article, to Clinton. What would your opinion be?

H/T to +Pradheep Shanker​​​​
 
Trump also told the audience, which had previously chanted the Republican standard-bearer’s signature “build that wall” mantra in reference to Mr. Trump’s proposed wall along the Mexican border, that Judge Curiel is “Mexican.”

“What happens is the judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great. I think that’s fine,” Mr. Trump said.

Judge Curiel was born in Indiana.

Introduction
Just a guy, taking one day at a time. I have a beautiful,loving Wife and incredible kids that keep me on my toes. I enjoy reading: historical, science fiction, mysteries. I am a complete Jonathan Kellerman nut, absorbing his books in a weekend sitting.

I am a Conservative Constitutionalist, and the owner of The Conservative Union, the largest Conservative Community of G+. Socrates said it best: "To find yourself, think for yourself". 

I've come from a dark place in these last few years, these chapters in my life, to a place with fewer shadows, and I like it here. I still have my Dark Humor, and my sarcastic wit, but as time has gone by, I have learned to enjoy the sweet & sour...

 As the Marquis de Sade said; "Imperious,choleric,irascible, extreme in everything,with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen;there you have me in a nutshell; kill me or take me as I am,for I shall not change."

Bragging rights
I have the best family. Ever.
