Let’s face the facts … the ugly truth … regardless of the personal pain it may cause. What facts you ask? Well, the simple, plain truth is that the current US President, Vice President, and the entire Congress of these United States of America are unfit to serve as our leaders.
When we look at their collective track record, we are left with only two options … keep reelecting them or replace every one of them … from both parties. I for one think they all must go and the sooner the better. Please give a listen and follow my reasoning.
If you see things the way I do, then I hope you’ll join with me in a commitment to reelect no one at the federal government level. Virtually every social problem that exists within our great country is directly traceable back to federal politicians who created them. Yet, they would individually suggest, that although they are a part of the system, they themselves are not personally accountable for the actions of the whole. Kind of like saying, “Yeah I was part of the riot, but I didn’t like it”. In fact they routinely campaign against the very problems they voted to create!
Both political parties claim to be against deficit spending … so why on earth do we have deficits? Everyone claims to be against higher taxes, yet taxes keep increasing. They all favor energy independence, yet we are still buying foreign oil. They all claim to be in favor of the middle class, but the middle class continues to carry the financial burden of the entire country.
Just exactly how is that with so many “individual” Senators and Congressmen with personal convictions that favor the average American, … how is that collectively they continue to extort and cheat us at every turn? Huh… maybe it’s because in reality they like it this way?
Look, if these guys really stood for what they “say” they believe in, then we wouldn’t have the mess we have today. Collectively, there are only a few hundred US Senators and Congressmen. They and they alone determine the financial and social direction of our country. If we have higher taxes, we have Congress to thank. When Social Security was robbed in the 1960s and replaced with an IOU (euphemistically referred to as the Social Security Trust Fund), we have congress to thank. When the prisons become overcrowded and criminals get sent back home instead of serving hard labor, we have congress to thank. When a President’s budget is destined to create a debt which cannot be paid back in 40 years, remember Congress approved it. When they complain of “lobbyists” … remember no lobbyist can force his bribe upon anyone. If you don’t want lobbyists in Washington then stop using them for own enjoyment. (Are you hearing me Nicky Joe?).
Dear friends, neighbors and family; I am herewith asking all of you to pledge with me to re-elect no one in Washington. Yes, I’m suggesting we toss out the baby with the bathwater. Because the bathwater is so nasty, you can’t tell if it’s actually a baby in that tub or a snake! Let’s toss them all out; as soon as possible. We have the power … it’s called a vote. Next federal election, no matter how much you might like Rockefeller, Byrd or Rahall … do not pull that lever to reelect them. Its time they get out and let someone else have a shot at fixing the problem. Then when we elect this new bunch we give them one instruction … “Get us term limits on Congress”.
We want two terms to be the limit of any US Senator or Congressmen. And if the new bunch fails, well; we vote them out and get us some more fresh meat; and we keep doing it until they become our representatives and not these self aggrandizing, self righteous, self-seeking, elites (such as we have now in Rahall, Byrd, and Rockefeller).
Now folks, I’m not speaking of a Democrat verses Republican position here. I’m saying all of them must go now from both parties! I don’t care if we replace them with trained collie dogs … this bunch we have now in Congress are disgraceful beyond belief. The time has come. We will either get off our butts to vote “No” to more of the same guys with the same lies; or we can kiss our country goodbye! You decide.
