Let's drain the swamp. Aren't we all appalled by the corruption in congress? It isn't restricted to one party, the whole institution is ridicuously out of control. When will America wake up and say "Enough is enough?" We elect these people and they let us down, time after time. I want to believe the government is populated by well-meaning people who want to do what's best for the American people. My brain tells me otherwise.
When someone tells me that they want to "fundamentally change America" I get really nervous. I think, fundamentally, America is OK. We need a tweek here and there, but at its roots, America is a great country. These people who are in congress are without a doubt, for the most part, the worst of this country. The everyday people, the workers who make the clock that is America tick, are what makes us great. Not these self-aggrandizing, narcissists, who populate congress.
Our founding fathers never contemplated professional politicians. That invites corrupt politicians who have lost touch with the people who have elected them to run for office, year after year, after year. What the hell has happened to our country? We used to listen to each other, now we talk past each other. When did we think that was a good way to govern?
I don't understand people who are so wrapped up in the ideology that they can't see the other side. That's not to say that I don't argue my side vehemently. I just want a dialogue that is robust but respectful. What's wrong with that? That's the beauty of blogs. They are not restricted by ideology they are open season. And that's good.
I don't hold anything with any politician or with any political party. In my estimation they both stink and they both don't really care about the people they are supposed to serve. I would love to have a third party candidate come along who would listen to the people and really, really remember that the power lies with "WE THE PEOPLE." In today's politics, that is certainly a novel concept.
What do you think?
