Unfortunately, there is no shortage of policies by federal, state and local governments that are just too stupid for words.
California has taken a unique approach regarding illegal aliens.Â Anyone who is stopped by a police officer who is driving a motor vehicle with a suspended or revoked license or has no license at all has their vehicleÂ impounded forÂ 30 days.
But aÂ new policy makes an exception.Â Everyone without a valid license stillÂ loses their car –except illegal aliens.Â OfficialsÂ argue the current law is too burdensome for those who are here illegally.
Speaking of California, the state is on the verge of enacting a law dramatically changing public education.Â Â Senate Bill 48 requires public schools toÂ teach the history and contributions of â€“ wait for it â€“ lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.
You see, elections haveÂ consequences.Â This is what we get when we vote for people whodismiss the Constitution,Â ignore the rule of law, believe in theÂ nanny state, frivolouslyÂ spendtaxpayersâ€™ money,Â oppose individual freedom andÂ practice political correctness.
America is in a steepÂ decline.Â But there is still time to turn this around.Â At the ballot box.
