You Have the Right to Remain Awesome



Politically left – “If we want your opinion…we will give it to you!”

Politically right – “We can’t have an opinion because we are either prejudice or racists.”


This just about sums up the position we Republicans find ourselves in. Damned if we do and damned if we don’t. Well, listen up, this is America and we have the right to be anything we want to be, with or without the Democrats’ permission.

The above statement also goes for the Democrats. They can be obnoxious, loudmouth bullies if they so desire, but that position rarely, if ever, gets results. That’s not to say that we don’t have some dufus, numskull idiots on our side of the fence, because we surely do. Come November we will deal with the Congressional Democrats and Republicans who need to be put out to pasture.

None of them will ever need to work again though. They made sure of that with the lifetime pensions (with full salaries, I might add) and lifetime healthcare (which is not Obama Care). Who voted for these perks? Well, it wasn’t the American people, that’s for sure. Yes, you got it – Congress voted for all of them and more. I would love to have a job where I could name my own benefits. On second thought, no…it would bankrupt the company, which is exactly what Congress has done to America.

The moral of this story is that all of us have rights guaranteed under our Constitution and it’s time to exercise those rights. If you really want to be awesome, don’t forget to vote in the mid-term elections in November. We all share this right and duty. So far it hasn’t been nuked through executive order or decree…but I may be speaking prematurely.

America, we need to get off our duffs and vote this November. Voting is not a privilege; it is a duty to our country! When you don’t vote, you are saying it is OK for greed and tyranny to rule. It is not OK and never will be in a free society.

Write on,

  1. I agree with your premise- We must vote, but not finding much value in the other stuff you wrote about in the beginning. Additionally- this is how the pension is described via Wikipedia: Members who participated in the congressional pension system are vested after five (5) years of service. A full pension is available to Members 62 years of age with 5 years of service; 50 years or older with 20 years of service; or 25 years of service at any age. A reduced pension is available depending upon which of several different age/service options is chosen. If Members leave Congress before reaching retirement age, they may leave their contributions behind and receive a deferred pension later.
