in response to reader comment: who holds the whip

Dear Fred

I don't think Americans are allowing their country to be ruled by politicians who don't care. It's the unprecedented number of social victims arising to be acknowledged and demanding to be dealt with as equals among victims. The victim identity has replaced nationalism. Socialist under the guise of liberalism, having perverted actual liberal ideology by moving it ever slowly to the far left, championed the cause of or created through the media victims. Everybody and anybody wanting special attention from society and government was assured a platform as victim. What's a politician to do. Professional politicians are about party ideology and the next election. Want to get re-elected give the masses what they want. Celebrate the victim. Grey is a much easier colour on the eyes. Red and blue are just so yesterday, and white; white is all about oppression of the masses man.

When joe citizen wakes up to the fact that the glitter on his shield of victimhood is nothing but the rust of socialist manipulation he/she will ask more from their politicians and more for their country. Demand laws and legal interpretations that are clear and concise and executed with out prejudice. Reject the cause and the lobbyist for special interest . Stand up and participate or your fear of Islamification or any other ification may become a reality.
