"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Congress, WH, SCOTUS, these guys are all in bed with each other, and it makes sense that they would be. I mean after all, Republican, Democrat, special interest, whatever these guys claim to be, as parasites their ultimate goal is to get as much money in their own pocket as possible. And their money is our money. They take it by threat of force from us. Of course they will all work together to increase the take.
 
They do nothing. They produce nothing. They are takers. There is no such thing as 'public service' anymore. These guys are all now multimillionaire criminals who only want the money. They are bloodsucking parasites.
 
Maybe McCain will campaign for Hilliary like he did for Obama when he 'pretended' to run against him.

There could be more at play than this.  McCain may be angling to exchange his endorsement for Defense Secretary or Secretary of State.  At the very least, he is sending shivers down the spines of GOPe types who see that he might turn if Rand Paul or Ted Cruz gets the party nod.  That makes him more powerful as a broker.

Gods - NOT Defense! The military is not there to appease his own nightmares. Besides, as Roland of Gilead says: "The world has moved on." Would he even have clue one about how warfare has changed since his active service?

We are in the 'divine right' stage of politics in America. These politicians do not even bother to pretend to be 'one of the people' anymore. They do not even pretend to have any special qualification or contribution to justify their positions and power. No. Instead they just say I am, therefore I am. Harry Reid and his ilk truely believe in their deepest heart that they are simply 'better' than everyone else and have a divine right to rule. Obama, Hillary, McCain, Reid, they are the same. They all believe that it is simply their 'right' to rule. And they believe that they are accountable to no one at all, not even to God. They just 'are', and that is all there is to it.
 
And now we see before us the increasing 'force of State' combined with the enforcement that the worst crime a person can commit is to be anti-Government. Being against the accumulation of power by these people is the worst crime imaginable, according to them. "How can you possibly be against me?" says, Obama, Reid, Hillary, "when I am obviously so perfect, and divine?"
 
The divine right of kings, or divine-right theory of kingship, is a political and religious doctrine of royal and political legitimacy. It asserts that a monarch is subject to no earthly authority, deriving the right to rule directly from the will of God. The king is thus not subject to the will of his people, the aristocracy, or any other estate of the realm, including (in the view of some, especially in Protestant countries) the Church.
 
According to this doctrine, only God can judge an unjust king.
 
The doctrine implies that any attempt to depose the king or to restrict his powers runs contrary to the will of God and may constitute a sacrilegious act. It is often expressed in the phrase "by the Grace of God", attached to the titles of a reigning monarch.

Not so!  They produce chaos, division, and more problems. :pondering:

I was a legislative staffer for six years.  You should try working for them.

Think that's bad? Try body guarding them.
