The Necessity of Accountability

I would like to introduce Taegan, our newest Liberty First intern. She describes herself as:

~Iowa Native. Hillsdale College Student. Aspiring Attorney. Jesus Follower and Kingdom Worker. Avid Reader. Frequent Shopper. Developing Cigar Connoisseur. Pursuer of Truth and Defender of Liberty. The Future of America.~
Taegan has decided to write a blog every day describing the Liberty First life. So, in lieu of our regular #Point2Ponder I will be posting Taegan’s #LifeLibertyLaw blog.
I joked the other day that Taegan is like my Doctor Watson. I find these blogs very entertaining and inspirational.  I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures as much as we love living them. ~ In Liberty, KrisAnne

The Necessity of Accountability
by Taegan James

Today I had a life-changing experience. A moment of revelation and divine intervention. You may think I’m talking about something I read in the Bible or heard from KrisAnne’s teachings, but alas, this is not the case. This moment of enlightenment happened when I tried my very first Krispy Kreme donut. That’s right. A warm, sugary confection covered in glazed perfection. I remarked that I’ve never even seen a Krispy Kreme store, Colton pointed out that the “Hot” sign was on, and before I knew it, we were whipping a U-turn to get some donuts. KrisAnne even asked the drive-through worker to smile for a picture (big thank you to him for changing my life). Upon taegan krispycompletion of my donut, I was in a realm of pure bliss that was nothing less than a glimpse of heaven itself. In fact, the group came to the consensus that Jesus’s second miracle was turning bread into Krispy Kremes. At that wedding, not only did they run out of wine, but something to eat along with it. You know the bread Jesus broke at the last supper? It was probably a Krispy Kreme. That part was just lost in translation, I’m sure. If I had the free rein to eat whatever and whenever I pleased, I would consume those delightful donuts at the same rate that Hillary Clinton lies through her teeth. Hopefully, someone who cared about my health and well-being would stop me. I would certainly wish that someone would impede me from destroying my body with food of no nutritious value. As delicious as Krispy Kremes are, I might need a person, or persons, to keep me in check so that I don’t overstep my bounds. A sort of accountability partner, if you will. Then, if I am unable to control myself, another party will encourage me to resist, or restrain me if need be.

I know someone in serious need of an accountability partner: Judge Richard Posner. He’s been a controversial topic on the KrisAnne Hall show the past couple of days, but here’s a quick run down. This federal judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has not simply crossed the line, but has hurdled it. He, in his own words, wrote in an article, and I quote,

“I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation.”

*pause for gasps of horror*

Yes, you read that right. A federal judge doesn’t even view the Constitution as relevant and applicable. Not only is he a judge, Dick Posner is a professor at the University of Chicago Law School and is allegedly the “most cited legal scholar of the 20th century.” If he truly believes that the words written by 18th century intellectuals do not apply to today because they could not possibly foresee our current circumstances, he’s a lunatic. This man makes countless rulings in court and teaches the next generation of attorneys and judges based on principles that directly contradict the Constitution. You know, the Constitution that he took an oath to protect and defend. Richard Posner MUST be kept accountable. He is past the point of behavior correction. We cannot simply spray him in the face with water and expect him to sit nicely or roll over for us. Posner must be fully restrained, and the only means of restraint is impeachment. WE the people are his accountability partners since government officials can’t seem to govern themselves in accordance with their job description. It is high time Richard Posner is impeached, and we are the only ones who can make it happen by demanding his removal to our Congressmen.

Now this is neither a new, nor rare occurrence. As King Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 1:9, “there is nothing new under the sun” because human nature is always consistent. I discovered that verse and plenty of evidence to back it up at tonight’s class on the Genealogy of the Constitution. KrisAnne went through over 700 years of history that demonstrates a pattern of tyranny and restoration of liberty. William I, William II, Henry I, John, Charles I, James II, and George III are all kings who exceeded their delegated powers and infringed on the Anglo-Saxon’s liberties. Each time, the people literally revolted and held swords to the king’s throat in order to take back their rights. Each time, they further expanded their liberty through law. The 1100 Charter of Liberties, the 1215 Magna Carta, the Petition of Right in 1628, the Grand Remonstrance of 1641, and the 1689 English Bill of Rights are the five documents that secured Anglo-Saxon liberty and serve as the foundation for our very own Constitution. You see, the people kept the Kings accountable for their abuses of power and curtailment of natural rights. They didn’t sit back and hope that someone else would come along a fix everything. As KrisAnne says, “there is no such thing as a presidential Messiah.” I’ve heard the debate over whether or not history repeats itself, but regardless, one must admit that there is an extremely precise pattern. Right on schedule, our government has overstepped its boundaries and has become a tyrannical and oppressive one. As we’ve learned, what happens next is that the people rise up and reclaim their power. Now I’m not saying go hold a sword to anyone’s throat, nor am I trying to incite rebellion, but Americans must hold the government and its officials accountable for their actions. They cannot continue to regulate, define, or infringe upon the rights we’ve inherited from God and our forefathers. It’s time to take back what’s rightfully ours.

Pursuing truth and defending liberty, always.
