Overbearing Unaccountable Government: The Modern Monarchy in Washington DC

From classified docs in Biden's office to the border crisis...a huge government hypocrisy

When Kerry J. Byrne wrote about the publishing of Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” on January 10, 1776, he used the phrase “overbearing unaccountable government.”  He also stated that “Common Sense” was so wildly popular that it sold the modern equivalent of 66 million copies. Thomas Paine was extremely critical of the English Monarchy – he termed them “ridiculous.” One could say that the same condition is ripe in our own nation today. Our own government is “ridiculous.”

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one.” Thomas Paine in Common Sense, 1776

The quixotic government that we live under is riddled not just with hypocrisy, but with unrealistic ideas that neither serve the people nor promote wise government. The heavy-handed tyrannical actions have generated a society that is a far cry from what it was designed to be. Thomas Paine’s publication hit those things strongly- and within months brought the Colonies to the Declaration of Independence. The unfortunate issue for us today is that try as we might to dig out from under the piles of bureaucracy and power-hungry lawmakers, we seem to fall back into the cauldron of stupid. Are we living in our own Modern Monarchy led by a fool named Biden and his Marxist proletariat? You decide.

Recently, classified documents were found in Biden’s VP office. The powers-that-be didn’t bother to mention that before the midterms, nor did they equate the issue with the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago as they should have. The administration goons- like they always do- covered for him. The Border is a disaster, and yet the cowards deliberately “cleaned up” El Paso before the Biden entourage arrived. He saw nothing that he should have seen, no encampments with thousands of illegals. He was shielded from the problem. He makes idiotic statements regularly. He lies consistently about everything from the economy to his own family. It’s a monarchy of sorts, run by an unknown group of fools behind the scenes and the court jester in front of the cameras.

Was the choosing of the House Speaker a beginning of such a revolution? Some think it’s at least a beginning.

Common Sense:

“These are the times that try men’s souls…Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Thomas Paine, 1776

A series of defeats made it seem as though the colonists bid for separation from England would fail. But on a frigid Christmas night in 1776, General George Washington and his band of tattered troops crossed the Delaware River and landed at a Hessian camp. Their fight turned the tide of the Revolutionary War toward the Colonies. Paine was correct about one thing: tyranny is not easily defeated. But its defeat is inevitable because they are on the wrong side of the people and the freedom upon which the United States was founded.
