“We are a nation of laws, not of men.” - John Adams
There is a reason the left denigrates or tries to rid our education system of literature from the past. Shakespeare, Homer, the Bible, etal. We learn that human nature does not change one iota. Our country's founders knew this and mapped out a govt based on a value system held as immutable and transcendent. The govt then operated by humans would be subject to higher laws they would have to obey. Not one single person in govt would be able to seize power legally over the citizenry as they would always have to answer to the Constitution. Obviously, humans are only too human and there have been several periods in our history when our founding values were set aside for personal power, financial gain and other base reasons. Even the bedrock of our Republic is now being questioned by those on the left that find our founding principles far too constrictive in their quest for a socialistic nirvana.
Freedom is always obtained at the cost of something. Its natural enemies are always at work - whispering a soothing song of making everything all fair and square without ever providing a solid definition of those terms or a set of quantifiable end goals. And those leading the seductive choir always seem to possess power and wealth far beyond what the masses can ever hope to procure. We have not always been the good country we set ourselves out to be, but we are still the country the average person of the world seeks to be a part of. Let us not allow the lack of perfection to be the enemy of the good our country has and is achieving. The fight has always been before us and it will continue forever into the future. See that the youth have the intellectual treasures of the past kept available to them and that the sacrifices of our predecessors for freedom and liberty never go unheralded.

California may end ban on communists in government jobs

SACRAMENTO, CALIF. Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.

Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and '50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.

It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.

Now they can stop calling themselves true blue socialists and become what they really are.

Thanks Russ - I came here just now to link that same article. Anyone who is a communist is an avowed enemy of our Constitution and Bill Of Rights. May as well have them come out in the open so we know who they really are. Silly people who worry about the 'Red Scare'.
Simply the world's largest number of murdered people.
And the world's worst ecological disasters.
And the biggest destruction of wealth in the history of mankind.
Quite a trifecta. Makes you wonder about the kind of person who would want to be a communist.
Oh, that's right - a California politician!

Russ, aren't they just acknowledging the objective reality of who is running so much of the system already? ;-)

Yeah.....it's the "Come Out of the California Closet Communists Act of 2017". I was going to use a "K" instead of "C" everywhere but I thought I might trigger someone!

You mean like this?
