The United State’s Illegitimate Government Here is one found on Political Wire. The government of The United States is illegitimate. Iowa Woman Claims to be a U.S. Senator Iowa state Senate candidate Randi Shannon (R) “has ended her campaign and instead declared herself a U.S. Senator for the state of Iowa,” the Des Moines Register reports. Shannon “argued that the legitimate federal government of the United States was replaced by illegitimate ‘corporate’ government in 1871 and has been operating since then in violation of the U.S. Constitution. She learned this fact just recently, she said, and has come to believe it after months of research.” “Dropping her bid for state office was a rejection of that illegitimate government. Now, she said she has been appointed to serve as a U.S. senator in the recently revived and constitutionally legitimate Republic of the United States of America.” So now we have two governments. One with a series of laws, elections processes that favor corporations and the wealthy no to mention big businesses. One that trashes the environment whilst spending half of it’s budget on military defense. 50 + Million people living in poverty. A growing jobless rate. A economy that is crashing and it’s leaders comprise of thousands of lawmakers across it’s land. This is the illegitimate one. And one legitimate one with one self appointed member. Probably a very small dictatorship?
