We are living through a time in history that’s fairly common given our nations polarized state. It is a time when a congressman or senator can vote for whatever he thinks will get him attention with no fear of it being passed. You may remember a few years ago that the Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare. How many times did they vote for that? I don’t know… more than once? Several times? It didn’t matter because it was nothing more than theatrics. They knew it would be vetoed. We now know this (I brag. I knew it then) because their tune changed when they gained control of Congress and the Whitehouse and their votes could actually change policy.
Now the tables are turned with the same result. Trump is in the Whitehouse, and the Dems own the House Of Representatives. So they can vote for the most outlandish schemes imaginable to Karl Marx himself knowing that it will never leave the lower chamber. The same is true for the Republicans in the Senate. They can vote to end infanticide resting assured that it will still be legal to allow babies to die after botched abortions when the sun sets that evening.
This is not the best scenario, but then again it’s not the worst. The worst would be if the Democrats could vote for all the communism they wanted and get it passed into law. Obamacare showed us that the Supreme Court, with all of its “conservative” appointees, can’t be relied on to ensure that leftist laws are constitutional. It is, after all, a living and breathing document, and so is, therefore, a changing, morphing-according-to-the-whims-of-the-moment document.
The best scenario would be the replacing of the pro-infanticide, state-worshiping, homo-love “Republicans” with constitutional conservatives and then the gaining of a majority in Congress along with a truly conservative president. Not that I hold out hope for such a thing. Our politicians are downstream of our culture, and there’s no way our wicked culture could bear the ramifications of our constitution.
So for now, there’s gridlock. Nothing significant is going to get done. So we can rest for now that, even though our liberties won’t be being restored, they won’t be further eroded. And our politicians can put on a spectacle for us of what they want us to think they actually believe.
