John Conyers Encapsulates All That is Wrong with Our Government
By: Jim Byrd
John Conyers and his wife Monica Conyers are the epitome of the corruption and ignorance that infects our Congress. Everything, and I mean everything, that is wrong with our government, especially Congress, can be manifestly condensed and summed up by this one congressman, his one statement, and his politician wife.
Could there be anything more perverse than to expect a congressman to actually read a bill before voting on it? According to Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), the only thing perverse would be to actually read a bill before voting on it.
21-term congressman, John Conyers, while laughing, surmised why the Democrat Party, on its best day, is an ignoble lot. His assurance of continued ignobleness came while addressing the reason lawmakers should not take the time to read the health care bill, or any other bill, for that matter: “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill.’ What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”
If you never read another printed word or broadcasted opinion defining the morally and intellectually barren Democrat Party, these two sentences uttered by John Conyers embody all you ever need to know about the Democrat Party. It also would not hurt to add a dash of John Conyers history of political corruption and ethics violations, to which he pleaded guilty. Perhaps you could add to the mix his wife Monica Conyers’ recent conviction of taking bribes as a Detroit City Councilwoman. She is free on $250,000 bond and faces 5 years in prison when sentenced.
This Republican form of government apostates who infest the Democrat Party have been labeled anti-American by those who are comfortable with their patriotism, but anti-American is too benign a characterization: they simply lack the aptitude to be Americans.
