GUEST EDITORIAL: Rich Yale on City Council

From time to time I’ll run a letter submitted to me when the author asks that it be, or approves of it. I try to run things that are fairly unique and not rehashes of other peoples writings locally or nationally. This next letter fits that bill, whether you agree with it or not. I’m also a believer in “if someone has something better to say, and a better way of saying it, why copy or alter it?”

With that in mind…

Amoral opportunity on City Council exploited by 4

Dear reader:

Imagine – if you can – not having a conscience, none at all, no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members. Imagine no struggles with shame, not a single one, no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action you had taken. And pretend that the concept of responsibility is unknown to you, except as a burden others seem to accept without question to do your bidding.

Now add to this strange fantasy the ability to conceal from other people that your psychological makeup is radically different from theirs. Since everyone simply assumes that conscience is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscience-free is nearly effortless. What could you do with your huge and secret advantage that handicaps other people with a conscience? You could join Longmont City Council’s new amoral majority.

City government derives its just powers from the informed consent of the governed. But, Council Members Benker and McCoy use their conscience-free advantage over the gullible moral majority to conceal the fact the new amoral majority changed the form of City Government from a Republic with Liberty and Justice for all; to a Socialist City-State standing for Liberty and Justice for conforming political elitists. Their clever lie that “LifeBridge’s participation in the City’s due civil process is First Amendment establishment of a religion in government” is intended to; and, did divert public attention from the amoral majority’s secret establishment of a Socialist City-State in Longmont during the election and the month they’ve occupied office. The deceptive issues combined with secularism rants cleverly masked their own unethical behavior making policies to control redistribution of the middle class’s income, wealth and job opportunities in the City’s economy.

To these ends the Constitution’s prohibitions means nothing if it interferes with the amoral majority’s ability to manipulate civil due process. If the amoral majority can control your life in City process it is not your friend. The majority of Longmonters have been tricked and deceived out of the right to liberty, freedom and justice in City Civil Process by Longmont ‘s amoral majority. This breeches the public trust. What can the middle class do restore their position of equality in Longmont ‘s form of government? Say No to Benker/McCoy and Yes to Government by the People. Call your Council person and insist, firmly they restore just civil due process before they become addicted and cannot give it up on their own free will.

Sincerely,
Richard Yale
