Why It's Not Possible to 'Drain the Swamp'
Secure Wealth and Military Power
Fast forward almost 225 years later and who are the people running the government? Well, minus the slave owners, they are the well-educated lawyers and wealthy who stand to gain the most from what the government does. So when you look at the big picture, not much has changed since the first government was created. Well-educated, lawyers and wealthy people who suffer from human nature and are constantly tempted with deeds of corruption each day.So imagine what would happen if you actually tried to "drain the swamp" as people who are unaware of how the powerful and wealthy stay powerful and wealthy. First off, you would not be able to eradicate them all in one day. Just like it takes years to get them into office, it takes years to get them out of office. Even if you could pass legislation tomorrow that every city, county, state, and federal government position could only be served by a one-term candidate, you still would have one basic problem you will never be able to overcome.During the term where they are all going to leave, you will have all the ones running for office who are going to fill those vacancies. The supposed "clean swamp fillers." All it takes is one closed-door meeting for the people in power to meet with the people who will fill their positions to inform them of the way government really works. Then, on the day the swamp is supposedly being cleaned, all you have done is replace the dirty swamp people with a new group of dirty swamp people. The only thing that makes it difficult to believe or comprehend is that such large groups of people could so effectively and so efficiently run the largest conspiracy on the planet right in front of everyone's eyes without ever being detected.Hermann Goering said it best:
“Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship…
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
It has been working this way since the first government was created. It has worked this way in every government that has ever been created. It will work this way in every government that will ever be created.If you can't see it then you just don't want to. It couldn't be more obvious.
