“For of men it may generally be affirmed, that they are thankless, fickle, false studious to avoid danger, greedy of gain, devoted to you while you are able to confer benefits upon them, and ready, as I said before, while danger is distant, to shed their blood, and sacrifice their property, their lives, and their children for you; but in the hour of need they turn against you.” (Niccolo Machiavelli(1469–1527)
In today’s political climate we have observed two things that are crystal-clear. The first is the corruption of our government and how it serves those who serve themselves. The second is the fact that it appears that our foundation of freedom hinges on survival of the fitness as the political battlegrounds resemble an act of war on our constitution and law enforcement and those citizens who stand behind the constitution as it was written and the laws as they were intended. Surely this must be an inspiration for all those patriots to assemble and come to the aid of their country that is in dire need right now to release itself from the grips of those very politicians who have failed to endorse the principles of American freedom and the enforcement of our immigration laws enacted today through passive and covert executive powers demonstrating a will for amnesty; a proposal that is being rejected by the majority of this country.
Our men and women of the United States Border Patrol as well as many other law enforcement agents are under fire for following the rules of engagement that requires them to arrest, detain and process illegal aliens that come into this country without paper to do so. Under pressure from a sorry breed of men representing the justice department and foreign interests, the lawmen need to take extra precautions and be more careful in their jobs to avoid being offended and put on the “blacklist” of undesirables such as lawmen Jesus Diaz, Jose Compean, Gary Brugman, Hardrick Crawford, Gilmer Hernandez, Celerino Castillo and Ramos and many more lawmen assigned at or around the borderlands. Inspiring their twisted policies with precisely targeted and selective prosecution and persecution, it is obvious that their obligations to represent our law community has been reversed as it jumps to the aid of our foreign country south of the border as it [Mexico] complains about the actions of the border patrol and lawmen on the border.
Americans should take notice and heed the mood of this administration as it is leading our nation towards the path of division, fear and hate that will ruin this country if allowed to fester and grow like a cancerous cell this deed is. The government has chosen to meddle in matters of justice, property and freedom. They have imposed sanctions on free men and allowed the offenders to roam free without restrictions. Such actions are surely acts of contempt for our U.S. Constitution and the rights of all American citizens as we are being held captive under government rule that allows others to run free.
There is little doubt that the current administration and their immoral agents have forgotten the sacrifices and the pain others have suffered to keep America free. Free from injustice and free from wrongful prosecutions and persecutions through mock trials of legitimate and brave lawmen that followed their oath and duty to protect our country. It appears that they want to confiscate our freedom and relish the power and greed for themselves as they watch innocent people suffer while sitting in jail or prison as those who point the fingers and accuse these officers walk about free with false accusations and support from government officials in the capacity to pull the right strings to bring needless suffering to those who are faithful to our cause and shed the blood, sweat and tears for protecting our nation’s borders.
Retiring this “question of being loved or feared” this matter can be summed up by acclaiming “, that since his being loved depends upon his subjects, while his being feared depends upon himself, a wise Prince should build on what is his own, and not on what rests with others. Only, as I have said, he must do his utmost to escape hatred.”
