When a law is enacted (or legislation) creating an agency, service or program of our Federal government, a Constitutionally based contract is made. It legally obligates our House and Senate to disburse our tax dollars and US revenues to cover these legally mandated services, agencies and programs.
By not covering the costs of those agencies, services and programs enacted into law – Congressional members made a choice to break the law.
To not remit those moneys from our Treasury, revenues and taxes to pay for these Constitutionally contracted and legislated agencies, programs and services is to break the fiduciary oath of office, to abandon its duties and responsibilities, and to do so in anti-thesis of the oath taken and the purposes of that office.
So, either Congress needs to a.) not pass these agencies, services and programs into law and therefore, not into existence in the first place; or, b.) remit the funds to cover those programs, agencies and services that were created by the legislation that the Senate and Congress have passed into law.
To not do so is to say that the Constitutional Contract creating them is not your duty to uphold despite the oath you took and the office you were elected to hold. In which case, you need some other job, because those elected seats do require an oath and the intention to uphold the laws of the land including our Constitution and those contracts made as a result of the power it has given our legislators.
The holders of these Constitutionally created legislative seats are also required by law to make proper disbursement of our tax moneys, Treasury assets and other revenues of the United States including appropriate disbursements to cover the costs associated with all programs, services and agencies created by legislative process and law by the US Congress’ and Senate’s actions.
Now, what we have is an entire class of actors seated in our Congressional seats that have decided none of these fiduciary duties apply to them. The oath means nothing to them and to shut down the US government serves as a goal to them rather than the health and well-being and continued strengthening of our nation.
That makes each and every one of them – (including you, Mr. or Mrs. Congress member who is proud of shutting down the US Government) – something other than a trusted public servant worthy of that seat in any US legislature. But such individuals are especially unworthy of the trust and power inherent in any seat of Federal and Constitutional mandate.
Unfortunately, many in our nation believe there is nothing illegal about what Congress has done in shutting down the Federal government of the United States of America. But, if they were asked – is the job of Congress to destroy the US, to destroy US businesses and communities, to destroy families and children’s lives, to destroy the US economy and its future opportunities – or rather to build it up, strengthen it and uphold its trust – which would they answer?
Obviously, our tax dollars, revenues and Treasury assets are not being remitted to pay for those agencies, programs and services that were created by agreement of our Representatives and Senators. That alone makes what these Congressional members have done to be illegal and in intentional aberration of their Constitutionally mandated duties and trust of office. Clearly wrong.
Clearly the actions of those who would destroy rather than build the United States and her people as well as attempting to destroy our future as a nation and those opportunities that such a future could afford us all.
There are no words to describe the abhorrence and abomination of these actions made by Congressional members, most of which were members of the Republican Party and were operating under the direct instigation of the GOP leadership. It is a shame and a tragic misfortune to have to call any of them, Republican because none of the tenets of the Republican Party have been followed nor honored in this horrendous set of actions.
These are the strategic workings of enemies of our nation rather than of supporters and upholders of the Constitution and our national interests. It is a tragedy unparallelled in American history if only for its unfortunate timing and obsequious intention of causing massive harm to as many Americans as possible simultaneously. Only terrorists to date have had that distinction. Now – our Congress and the GOP has succeeded in hitting that mark as well.
