I am a person who has viewed the nonsense happening in our government over the years with frustration. I know that politics and government have always been nasty and inefficient. However, I believe that unless citizens and the media watch, discuss, and communicate with their elected officials, the elected officials will take what they can from the system, adhere to special interest requests, and simply not look out for the voter.
Our elected officials for the most part are career politicians, with a few exceptions, with one eye on the country and one eye on their career and future – we simply don’t have their undivided attention. Under our Constitution we and now the blind media are the watchdogs. If we abdicate this position of power, we only have ourselves to blame. Don’t blame the government for not changing and serving its people, because in this land we are the government. Government is not the answer nor is it the cure. It is only an inefficient means to defense, security, and prosperity.
