Treason doth never prosper: what's the reason? Why if it prosper, none dare call it treason.
Ovid John Harington
They say that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. The Democratic Party is stuck in a temporal loop it seems doing the same thing over and over again, expecting the same results long after their time has passed,.
But do not impugn their Patriotism!.
Well except for Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks,in a refreshing display of honesty, she revealed that she has not the slightest idea what patriotism is, does not understand why anyone one values it and has none herself.
Lead singer, Natalie Maines recently said, ?The entire country may disagree with me, but I don?t understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be patriotic? About what? This is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country?I don?t see why people care about patriotism.?
It is a Sign of the Times that our language fails. We are witnessing today actions which do not fit the traditional definition of Treason.
In law, treason is the crime of disloyalty to one's nation or state. A person who betrays the nation of their citizenship and/or reneges on an oath of loyalty and in some way willfully cooperates with an enemy, is considered to be a traitor. Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as: "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]." In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aided or involved by such an endeavor
Want the other side to win.
Have a grudge against their own Country.
Are being blackmailed or tricked into betraying their own Country.
Sold out the Country for their own benefit.
Some examples are:
Walter Duranty who received a Pulitzer for his articles covering up Stalin's Genocide, because?
"The deaths of a few tens of millions of peasants are of no consequence when compared with the Future Victory of the Revolution"
Benedict Arnold who felt he was not given his due from his own countrymen, note he was until he betrayed his Country one of the Greatest TRUE Heros of the Revolution.
Lastly all the folks who fell prey to the tricks of the KGB and other foreign intelligence operations.
Or just wanted the money.
Today we have those working feverishly, giving aid and comfort to the enemy, but in truth the aid and comfort to the enemy is a secondary effect.
They have no interest in the other side winning and except for the fact that the public keeps electing Republican, no real grudge against America.
They are not being blackmailed.
What they are doing is, anything it takes to bring down their political opponents here no matter how much damage it does to America elsewhere.
It is to be blunt partisan politics of the blackest nature.
They care nothing about the damage they do to America, nor the aid they render to its enemies as long as their actions increase the probability they may regain power.
Since power is money, they are close to my last example of Traitors.
Those who "just wanted the money"
But don't impugn their patriotism, most do not rise to the level of honesty that Natalie Maines exhibits.
And if they win the Presidency, control of Congress,then no matter how much harm they will have done to this Country,
None dare call it Treason.
