What and who can we believe anymore? Not that it hasn’t come close in the past, but it appears today that every entity, every department and agency in Washington D.C. has suffered a critical meltdown of principle – of truth, justice and the American way.
The truth doesn’t matter anymore to the political ruling class – nor does doing the right thing because it’s good for America. We hear all the time about many things – that “it’s” worse than it’s ever been – “I’ve never seen it this bad.” And any reasonable person would react with the factual statement that people from every generation think this, whatever “this” happens to be. It could the heat, or the cold, or draught, or snow, race relations, poor economy – and yes, the division in Washington and the citizens of this nation.
In D.C. there has always been division, disagreement and outright animosity between parties and individual members. But through all the cheating, lying, infighting and back-stabbing, there were still government agencies the people thought they could count on to not be corrupted the way the political class has been – to do right by America.
I’m speaking of the agencies, such as the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. We have been told that despite everything else melting down in Washington, we could depend on these agencies, to maintain a certain amount of independence and to at least keep us safe – that they are beyond reproach. But frankly, I don’t know anymore.
