Our current Constitutional contretemps has a two-pronged origin. First: the remarkably successful Gramscian infiltration and eventual takeover of American institutions, the schools in particular. Second: the rise of a professional-politician class, what I usually call the ProPols, something the Founders warned us explicitly and specifically about, again and again and again.
The Founding Fathers Would Have Gagged at the Idea of Legislators for Life
The Founding Fathers would have been appalled at the idea of legislators for life. When the Constitution was adopted, “public servant’ was more than a euphemism.
Leaders were expected to serve because it was their patriotic duty. They would leave their farms, shops and offices for a term or two, and then go back home to live among those they’d governed under the laws they had fashioned.
Today, they make a pilgrimage to the Golden Temple on Capitol Hill and stay, and stay, and stay.
I was originally going to excerpt a much bigger chunk of this one, until I realized that the above will be plenty and enough to adequately pique your interest.
