What does it take to be a politician these days? You have to grab the bull by its horns and see who can tell the biggest lie. You have to ask yourself, “Are all politicians’ liars?” You can answer your own question easily by reading the newspaper, watching news on TV or searching the Internet. Yup, every last one is not only a liar, but most are not even good at it.
What is the biggest lie in Washington, D.C.? The answer is; “I’m not in it for the money or the security of fat retirements and the best healthcare in the world. I am in politics to help my country.” Pinocchio’s nose would grow four feet long on this one. While the rest of the citizens of America can hardly make ends meet, let alone afford health insurance, the fat cats in Washington are living the high life while voting pay raises and even better perks while we sell off what assets we have left trying to keep our homes from foreclosure! I use to think it was just a few bad apples, but those few bad apples have spoiled the whole damn barrel from top to bottom.
In a little over 200 years we have gone from a God-fearing nation of doers to a nation of grabbers and takers with God stricken from the records. The hard-working, real Americans that are left holding the bag continue working their fingers to the bone supporting a huge and corrupt government that insists on deficit spending in the trillions to support its greedy money habits. Have a problem? Throw money at it. Need cash? Print more. Need a war to keep people working? No problemo – throw more money at it. Huge companies are going bankrupt because of illegal and immoral behaviors? Bail the bastards out.
The federal government says we mustn’t let America fail. Guess what, morons; banks, car manufactures, Wall Street, and money grubbers are not America. We, the people, are America, and you (big government) have failed the very people who put you in office and pay your fat cat salaries. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you; how can one group of self-centered, spoiled, greedy men and women be so stupid?
Oh, I know you feel like you’re protected in your ivory towers, but the truth be known; it’s the people who have struggled day by day for survival that will be the ones who will end up with the prize. While it is illegal for a person to threaten harm to any government worker or workers, it is not illegal for us to predict your downfall when the stuff hits the fan – and it will.
The world is one big, giant Ponzi scheme and when it falls, the big cats will suffer the most because they have the most to lose. When was the last time you had to walk to work? When was the last time you had to cook left-over leftovers? When was the last time you had to sew a button on or fix a zipper? When was the last time you had to watch your kids go to sleep hungry? When was the last time you had to stand in line for hours to see a doctor? When was the last time you had to stand in line for hours for unemployment benefits that were cut off because of a government mistake that always ends up being our mistake? When was the last time you found yourself in a hateful divorce because of the lack of money to keep the household running smoothly? The list is truly endless….
If I hear one more, “My fellow Americans,” I am going to puke. I think the last time the statement meant anything was when Harry Truman said it during WWII. Most of all, I am ashamed of my government and the shame goes deep. I can’t look at a politician without feeling that shame and it sickens me to the core. I would rather change a dirty diaper on a child I don’t know than deal with anything political.
While I am expressing my disdain and feeling rather sick to my stomach doing so, I have the answer to the problem. When next election comes around and you are heading for the voting booth, vote Independent on everything and let the Republicans and Democrats eat humble pie as they start packing and have to enter the real world where we live!
