Watch out, little guys!

Partisan politics is all there is left in the continuing clash of Democrat and Republican parties, the focal point currently being the deciding of a president.

Rule of law exited the scene with the impeachment trial of President Clinton. The Democrat fanatics (I use the word “fanatics” because I do not wish to include all Democrats in my comments here) say they are protecting the rights of the little guy and providing for the future of the children. I admire those who would be truly having this as their motive, however, I fear that this is not the case with these power elite. They care only for their own positions, their power and their own selfish ambitions. Great shame is on them for their deception, but their deceitfulness was expected by those great men who prepared and protected us with our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The big shame is on us for allowing them to so flourish as our elected servants.

What they are doing is gutting the power that the little guy has to stand against the tyranny of the power elite. There is no doubt that President Clinton committed perjury and when asked to make a judgment in the case, not one Democrat took the time to walk across the street and review the evidence.

Who, among the little guys, would have been able to commit perjury and not go to jail? Who would be able to get the Floridas Supreme Court to change the election laws to win the election?

We little guys had better wake up, because the only environment where we have protection of the law is one in which we are guaranteed equal protection. We do not need a leadership whose actions diminish our status by elevating themselves above the law that applies to us.

Know this, little guys, anyone who does such things is not fit to take the oath of office in any position whether it be president, senator, representative or judge in this land that we call America.
