Republicans need to get out and vote in the mid-terms of 2022 and take back the power from the Democrats.
Henry Louis Mencken

There’s a reason the saying goes “power corrupts.” It’s because it does – and often quite quickly. Anyone who has ever held a position of even minor authority can likely attest to this fact. The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule, and those who are in positions of power are all too often ego-driven individuals more concerned with maintaining their own hold on that power than they are with doing what is best for those they purport to serve. This sad state of affairs has been playing out in democracies all over the world for centuries, and it shows no sign of abating any time soon.
The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve. This is true even of the pious brethren who carry the gospel to foreign parts.
Henry Louis Mencken was one of the most colorful and controversial journalists and political commentators of the early 20th century. He was a staunch critic of American society and culture, and his scathing wit made him a popular commentator on public affairs. Despite his acerbic tongue, Mencken was also a passionate defender of freedom of speech and individual liberty. His writing is still relevant today and provides an interesting perspective on American political life in the early 20th century.
Political commentator H. L. Mencken’s “Minority Report” was first published in 1956. This new, digital edition includes the original introduction by Sinclair Lewis and a foreword by Russell Kirk. A scathing critique of American politics and society, it is as relevant today as when it was written over fifty years ago. With an engaging tone and sharp wit, Mencken takes on topics like democracy, education, religion, and more. If you’re interested in political commentary or want to understand American society from a different perspective, then this book is for you.
Democrats are the same as Banks. In business, there are always two sides to every transaction. When it’s sunny and shining outside, a banker is more than happy to lend you his umbrella. But when the clouds roll in and it starts raining, that same banker will demand his umbrella back. The same philosophy can be applied to political relationships as well. Countries may form strong alliances during good times, but when the going gets tough, those alliances can quickly crumble.
Just look at the current situation in the Middle East – once disparate countries have banded together to fight a common foe, but it’s only a matter of time before those allegiances dissolve. So while things may seem sunny and rosy right now, don’t be surprised when things take a turn for the worse. This is exactly what is going on now with the Democrats. They won the House of Representatives and the Senate along with the white house (Which is questionable), so that means the sun was shining.
Now Democrats are in fear of losing the House and the Senate, so now it’s raining and they have come up with a way to attack Republicans with the Jan. 6 investigation. They are demanding their umbrella back. Republicans need to come out for the mid-term elections and vote. Demand the umbrella back.
