The Roles of Government

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – The United States Constitution

        On February 2nd, 2015, the executive branch of the federal government proposed a $3.99 trillion dollar budget for the year. However, what are we going to get in return for that money? Will the roles of government as delineated by the Constitution be fulfilled with this massive budget? Let us examine the issue in more detail:

Establish Justice

Through the perpetuation of racial identity politics and the empowerment of a vast menagerie of special interest groups, the scales of justice are being unevenly tilted away from the majority in favor of all manor of minority groups. Indeed, many of these subclasses did not exist a generation ago, and literally sprung into creation to benefit from the radical left wing climate which favors the non-majority through media, public policy, and legal action.

Insure Domestic Tranquility

The federal government has actively divided the American people in a way which hasn’t occurred since the 1960s. Extreme leftist overreach on unpopular issues such as gun control, universal health care, immigration, and gay marriage has created a partisan atmosphere whereby Congress can no longer function. The liberal shift has created a gulf from the right so vast that compromise is unreachable and common ground is nonexistent.

Provide for the Common Defence

Left wing radicals openly riot against police with tacit executive branch approval. Dead criminals are metamorphosed into race heroes, always with encouragement from the President, who has even compared them to his own children. The price of ammunition has skyrocketed and many calibers jump off the shelves minutes after being stocked. A whole new lifestyle called prepping has emerged which focuses on preparing for and surviving the end of breakdown of American civilization due to the lack of trust in the current state of affairs, not coincidentally resembling the nuclear war preparations of the 1960s.

Promote the General Welfare

Welfare rates are higher than ever before! What a perverse twist on the original intent of the word.

Secure the Blessings of Liberty

The Executive Branch and left wing members of Congress have made several attempts to restrict the 2nd Amendment rights of citizens to bear arms. Rebuffed nationally, they have shifted their efforts to to the state level to remove gun rights in blue states (along with a host of other rights on issues like smoking). The right to live without health insurance has been eradicated. Indeed, criminals who have illegally entered America are the only people who seem to have secured the blessings of liberty under this administration.
