Will someone please give Patrick Kennedy a clue

September 28, 2009

I’ve been very busy writing tech data for a project I’m working on, but I simply can’t let Rep Patrick Kennedy’s remarks go unanswered. The guy has a famous last name, and recently lost his father, but that doesn’t give him a free pass. Mr. Kennedy, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, is of the opinion that “violent rhetoric” (whatever that means) can lead to actual violence; his family has seen quite enough violence in political life.

Here’s a piece of advice Mr. Kennedy… the most dangerous thing to politicians is an informed electorate. If you don’t want all those pesky voters to vocally oppose the unconstitutional actions taken by you and your cohorts, make sure that your constituents are either too stupid to know what you’re doing, or keep total secrecy until it’s all done.

This is a nation of laws. Over the past few years, our elected representatives, like Patrick Kennedy, paid a lot of lip service to the concept of “the rule of law.” It seems to apply to everyone and every nation — except the elected representatives of this country. People get upset when they see how little their representatives respect the oath they swore prior to taking office, and the Constitution they swore to support and defend.

Rep Kennedy and other elected officials must understand that we elect them to serve us, not to enslave us. He provides yet another visible reason as to why Washington D.C. is in dire need of a thorough enema come next election day.

Until next time,
