Let's look at some seemingly unrelated facts and relate them:
First, the leadership of both the Democratic and Republican parties know that John Kerry met with the enemy during the Viet Nam conflict at least once and that his activism adversely affected the treatment of our prisoners at that time. They know the definition of treason and that the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, Section 3 specifically prohibits people who "shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof" from serving in Congress without formal absolution from that body.
They know it because I have personally brought it to their attention on more than one occasion.
Now look at this. In July, 2000 (months before the present administration was elected
and years before Arnold Schwartzenegger became governor of California) Barney Frank, Senator from Massachusetts, proposed H.J.88, a "CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO ALLOW FOREIGN-BORN CITIZENS TO BE PRESIDENT." There were, of course, other members of congress involved but Frank was the author. Frank, of course, is a close associate of the Kennedys and Schwartzenegger, a native of Austria, is married to a Kennedy.
There's an AWFUL lot of talk about Schwartzenegger running for President. Thank goodness it also takes an awful lot to change the Constitution.
So now I'm looking for more incidents that show that, in spite of their howling at each other, there really is not much difference between the two parties -- that they actually have the same basic goals and work together in ways we overlook.
Then I want to consider just what this means to the country.
