Don’t come with a plea, but with a hook

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Ev­ery day I re­ceive mail com­plain­ing of the many depre­da­tions of the three branches of gov­ern­ment. They vi­o­late ev­ery part of the Con­sti­tu­tion that for­bids them to im­pose on the God-given rights of the peo­ple. Then I am asked to send money to sup­port leg­is­la­tion to re­store those rights.

Let me ad­mon­ish you let­ter writ­ers that this is not the way to ac­com­plish this pur­pose. Since the Con­sti­tu­tion is the Supreme Law of the Land, and if the “rule of law” truly ex­ists, any fur­ther ac­tion to cor­rect th­ese vi­o­la­tions should be against the vi­o­la­tor. We can ac­com­plish this pur­pose on Elec­tion Day.

To pe­ti­tion a politi­cian is to give him or her a way out. You will hear ex­cuses even bet­ter than a sin­ner be­fore the Devil.

The only way to re­cover the “rule of law” will be to clear our gov­ern­ment of all those self-serv­ing, cor­rupt politi­cians who promptly for­get their oath of of­fice as soon as they are on the pay­roll.

The real power lies with the vot­ers. How­ever, we must be cir­cum­spect with who we se­lect to rep­re­sent us. Dean L. Carter Walterboro, South Carolina
