Do I give a crap about being politically correct. No. If all politicians don’t suck its only because they are too new at it.
It’s really difficult to avoid talking politics today. Everyday I’m inundated with emails about our representatives from all levels of government about what crimes and negligence they are part of. No matter which side you stand by (and I really can’t believe that some still are staunch supporters of their party), you have to be questioning what the hell is going on. Politicians at all levels are ripping us off, practicing insider trading, overtaxing us to pay for their special interest groups, lying under oath (see Holder), committing crimes (see Fannie/Freddie), not being arrested and then being placed in new positions under this administration and so on and so on. This is not only sickening and disgraceful, but what I don’t understand is that so many of the general public still think that this is just part ‘conspiracy theory” nonsense, racism or even worse, they just accept it.
When, if at any time will this end? Are people not fed up enough to demand that our politicians be held accountable for this mess we are in? Its time to stop this business as usual and elect people who aren’t lifetime politicians. How about running the country like it was a small business. When a small business owner faces declining business, he can’t raise prices and expect that customers will come in and just pay more. He has to cut expenses, trim the fat and possibly take home less income to save jobs and the business itself. I have an idea. How about our politicians pay into social security, Obama-care(or whatever the health plan is we are mandated to join), limit terms with no pensions or lifetime pay and eat from the same dish they are serving us. Wouldn’t that help trim the deficit? After all, we have all been asked to suck it up and pay more in taxes to fix the mess they created but never once do we see our reps taking a hit for the better of the country. Is it really that difficult to comprehend? No, not really but why would anyone buy into that notion if its never demanded of them.
Wake up folks! Your losing your homes and retirement savings with no better plan ahead to help you get them back. Politicians are still living and saving at the same levels they have been for years. Has any of them been affected by this like we have? Our President, his family, his staff and lower level politicos continue to fly around our country on taxpayers dollars while a great majority of us are worrying about where the next paycheck will come from. Does it make sense that the employee in this case does better than the employer? Where else in the world does that happen?
Wake up! Its getting late and your letting this happen. Get out and vote for who’s better on their platform, not who’s better on camera. Hold the next group accountable and lets start working on “real change” this time.
