Contempt For Holder? Not a Wise Move

Mr. Carter's article misses critical points in assessing the role of government. It is the responsibility of Congress to hold in contempt any that subvert this nation and cover up associated illegal actions by denying access to documentation. It doesn't matter if it fits the flavor of the day or interferes with a politician's campaign "message". Failure to accept this responsibility for any reason is tantamount to collusion with the crime. The elected officials work for "We the People" not themselves. There is NO theory about it. Subjugated acceptance of thugs operating outside the Rule of Law in our government has no place in our government.

Our system, as designed by the Founding Fathers, is NOT supposed to iognore political realities; it is supposed to RESPOND to the political realities. To scold Congress for responding to the current political climate is pointless. The problem is NOT with Congress; it is with the current political climate. And when we talk about the political climate, we're talking about the state of mind of the American electorate.

Heretic, you would have us believe that "the problem is NOT with Congress", but "the American electorate", as you call them, strongly disagree with you: poll numbers rating the performance of Congress are at an all time low. Dereliction of duty is par for the course for Congressmen today.

Republicans actually have a nice story to tell. The economy sucks. Anyone with a brain knows it is being floated with money printed by the Federal Reserve. The world economy sucks. Europe is going to go into a deep slow down. Italy, Spain, Greece and France will go off the cliff.

The economies of Britain and Germany will be on a hamster wheel. All their production and growth will go into a state of “just staying even”. They will be like traders that have a bad position, losing you money each day, but your day trading keeps you afloat.
