Tonight’s State of the Union speech was held inside a Capitol surrounded by a fence. Why the fence, you ask? That fence was erected because the shrinking violets in the US Congress and Senate live in fear of their own constituents. Here’s what one of America’s Founding Fathers had to say about that.
How many of you fear your government these days? That’s the government which sees half the population as “domestic terrorists”. Those Founding Fathers conditioned government in the United States upon the “Consent of the Governed”. Well, we don’t consent to being ruled, so those Congress-critters and Senators perhaps should live in fear of their constituents throwing them out of office.
