“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it”
― Frederic Bastiat
We have reached a point in time, where treading water is useless, we are going to drown in “talking points “and other types of deception if we don’t make strong strokes toward a safe haven. Our nation is drowning in debt simply because the Permanent Elite Political Class in Congress and the White House has lined their own pockets with wealth; while continually taxing the poor.
President Obama and Congress have created for themselves a legal system, that plunders the taxpayer, these disrespectful thieving scoundrels, accept bribes, and repel the needy. We need to stop-look-listen or we are going to be run over and destroyed by the political train wrecking our economy. Congress and the President’s time have been taken up with scandals. Eric Holder Attorney General was held in Contempt of Congress after refusing to release all documents which the House of Representatives had demanded concerning the Fast and Furious gun walking operation. (2012)…Then there is Benghazi, will we ever truthful know what happened there? Do we need the appointment of a special prosecutor? There is the NSA spying scandal, with so many White House scandals—and new ones popping up every day— there is no time left to address the important issues. And the reality of what’s going on is kept form the average citizens. Wouldn’t it be nice if the biggest threat to our nation and national security could be discussed? That threat being our annual federal budget and our national debt.
Meanwhile, while congress and the president play the blame game, and get nothing done; we the citizens blame each other. Like small unruly children, we throw fits and tantrums scream and holler about, gay rights, my rights, his rights, her rights, group rights, civil rights; a kind of conduct that separates us all from who we really are. Right or wrong we are all Americans and we need to stick together. The average American citizen goes along, to get along, living from paycheck to paycheck, and doesn’t care less about scandals, until everybody is hit hard in the pocketbook; Or when a relative or friend needlessly dies in a corrupt war.
Benghazi and Obamacare should be a wake-up call. The questions we need to ask ourselves are – Where lives needlessly lost in Benghazi? Is Obamacare destroying jobs and ruining our economy?
The strong strokes we need to swim through to that safe haven I mention in my opening paragraph is
Direct Democracy. Electoral democracy has self-destructed, it’s past time to give “We the People” a chance. Direct democracy is the only way we can change Washington, we need honest upstanding people in congress and the presidency. We need a congress and a justice department that will prosecute and impeach the president if necessary. The corruption will not stop as long as we have rigged elections, elections where only the wealthy can run for high office. Our government is run by plutocrats and socialistic progressives.
