I have had enough with the Congress, both Democrat and Republican – the lies and half truths by Dodd, Rangel, Pelosi, and Frank, feigned indignation from Republican leadership, and on and on. Take a good look and you will see that the snake oil salesmen and women of the world have determined that Congress is the best gig in town. Yes there are a few patriots in Congress, but the majority only care about staying in Congress and retiring rich.
I have had enough from the Bush and Obama administrations – each administration with its own gross degree of hypocrisy. Does anyone really think we can spend our way out of debt? Does anyone really think that the push for cap and trade is not a tax? Does anyone really think that either administration really cared or cares about the future of the American people – we know they cared or care about the future of their ideology, but what about the future of the American people? Main stream America is an afterthought to these parties. I don’t mean sending stimulus checks – I do mean the overall health of this nation. All we seem to believe in is short term appeasement of the voter in exchange for votes. We use earmarks to gain campaign funds – how wrong is that? Main stream America has been ignored by both parties, in favor of both right and left wing zealots and the progressives from both parties – oh and let’s not forget those very uber rich who are now buying our Congress and perhaps the presidency – you know – the George Soros types through tentacled organizations, with their own agenda. Who do we blame? Us, that’s who – not the U.S., but the people who are simply not engaged with their government. Our government is no longer of the people and by the people. It is now of the fringe and by the fringe – the 12% on each side. Too many Americans are just interested in what is in it for them. Too many Americans know who was thrown off American Idol, but not who the Speaker of the House is – yet they vote.
Unless and until we begin to care enough about our own future and how much the government should play in that future, we will continue down the path of letting the fringe of America – from each party – be in charge. The Federal Government is out of control and has been out of control for nearly a dozen years. In fact, we could say the Federal Government has been out of control since the seventeenth amendment – that was when the states abdicated their constitutional role of watchdog of the federal government. Look it up.
Had enough? If so, then do something about it. Start by finding good people running for state office or in state office and get behind them. Likely they have not been corrupted and if you find really good patriots to support, likely they will not be corrupted. Push for the states to take back the watchdog role of the federal government. Push for the states to control the federal government. Sit on your hands and you will get what you deserve – a non-functioning nanny state, run by the fringe in power. Soon they will tell you how to eat, drink, rear your children, and how to live, or are they already doing that? They can’t help themselves because they believe they are much smarter than you.
