twelve days after Trump’s inauguration:
"Others, however, view resistance as a
part of the job.
“Policy dissent is in our culture,” one diplomat in Africa,
who signed the letter circulating among foreign diplomats, told The New York
“We even have awards for it,” this person added, in reference to the
State Department’s “Constructive Dissent” award.
One Justice Department
employee told the Post, “You’re going to see the bureaucrats using time to
their advantage,” and added that “people here will resist and push back against
orders they find unconscionable,” by whistle-blowing, leaking to the press, and
lodging internal complaints.
Others are staying in contact with officials appointed by President Obama to learn more about how they can undermine Trump’s agenda and attending workshops on how to effectively engage in civil disobedience
*************The intent of the Founding Fathers was to create a Constitution, full of Checks and Balances, where the goal was that no person or association of persons could rule as tyrants over the people:
And yet we have a tyranny in the Deep State of unelected, unaccountable, anti-citizen bureaucrats who control pretty much every aspect of this country.
We have a Standing Army of Bureaucrats.
Founders never envisioned a standing army of federal workers because they never imagined the Federal Government could possibly grow so gargantuan given to limited duties the Federal Government allowed the Feds to do. (Another issue to tackle)
Education (Dept. of Education)-- not the Fed's job.
Supporting retirees (Social Security) - not the Fed's job.
Supporting the poor (Title 8, HUD, Food Stamps) - Not the Fed's job.
Regulating industry (Dept of Commerce, Labor) - Not the Fed's job.
Regulating speech (FCC) - Certainly NOT the Fed's job
The Fix is easy
Enough of talk about term limits for politicians, we can at least theoretically vote them out of office (we never do), so what are term limits for exactly? Are they to save us from ourselves?
What we really need are term limits for the Deep State.
The Deep State whom we never get a chance to vote for.
The Deep State hired by previous administrations we have since rejected.
The Deep State whom we never get to fire because their federal worker's union is too powerful.
The Deep State whom we now know really runs Washington.
Everyone knows the Founding Fathers worried about a standing army.
They just never envisioned a standing army of federal workers.
In the army, the long held tradition is "Up or Out!" Either you are promoted to lead other men, or you return to civilian life and let another young man take your place.
We need the exact same mentality in the federal work force.
Working for the federal government in any capacity should be looked at as a national obligation, to be served for the good of your country, not looked at as a career.
Four years serving your country and then get a real job.
