Part 26: of a 28-part series
This is my next point. We have a protection – and what is it? The powers in Congress, not in the Presidency. Remember that. In America, we are identified more by our political sphere of influence than by our social rank. More by our town, city, county, and state affiliation than by our station in society determined by birth, wealth, or education.
Within each political sphere, there will be found the rich, the middle income, and poor. These are relative in each locality, are they not? But theres also mobility within those categories. You can have a million dollars one day, and tomorrow its gone. We saw that, right? Two trillion dollars, right? Gone. The market goes up and down. And theres a great deal of mobility, because we are not set in any particular income class.
Some people dont like America because of our excesses, but what have we learned about our excesses? The excesses of affluence (inordinate consumption, political corruption, gluttony, greed, etc.) they judge and destroy themselves. We dont have to worry about them.
You try to live a lifestyle of inordinate consumption and political corruption. People go to court all the time for political corruption, dont they? Gluttony greed and you know what? What are we witnessing in this country? They judge themselves. Its self-destroying. Dont worry for things that are self-destructive. You dont have to bark at it. You dont have to shout at it. You dont even have to shoot it. It will self-destruct. Let it self-destruct. The good will continue.
America is structured to solve our problems. We are not identified by our party affiliation, by our family affiliation, but by our locality, where we reside actually our sphere of political influence. America is structured to solve her problems how? Beginning at the local level. So if this President doesnt work, we can change it at the local level. We are, I believe, insulated by our local spheres. We have the power of electing our rulers in Congress.
