Amer­i­cans need to act on Clin­ton scan­dal

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -


Don­ald Trump on Tues­day night re­peat­edly ham­mered his mes­sage that there is a “rigged sys­tem” at work, point­ing specif­i­cally to the FBI de­ci­sion to not rec­om­mend crim­i­nal charges against Hil­lary Clin­ton.

FBI Direc­tor James Comey’s state­ment was a sting­ing pub­lic in­dict­ment of Clin­ton, her aides and even her at­tor­neys. Amer­ica has al­ready con­cluded that charges were un­likely, the FBI in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed new facts that il­lus­trate that the pos­si­bil­ity of crim­i­nal charges was closer than the we knew. What a clear pic­ture Amer­ica has of this rigged sys­tem and the need to clean house.

The found­ing fa­thers did write into the Con­sti­tu­tion this:

1. When the gov­ern­ment vi­o­lates the Con­sti­tu­tion, it is the duty of the Peo­ple to rise up against the gov­ern­ment to bring the gov­ern­ment into com­pli­ance with the Con­sti­tu­tion.

2. The Dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence es­tab­lishes the supremacy of the Peo­ple and the right and duty to de­fend the rights of the Peo­ple over the acts of the gov­ern­ment.

3. The gov­ern­ment ex­ists for the sole pur­pose of serv­ing the Peo­ple, not rul­ing the Peo­ple. Only the fu­ture pres­i­dent and a large por­tion of Amer­i­cans can make Amer­ica bet­ter.
