Dear Citizens of America.
Are we losing our mind?
I truly think that the near collapsed of our country economics from the faulty Bush presidency, has produced some alarming public amnesia that prevents millions of our best citizens to think correctly, so mistakes are frequently made, like the selection of many radical, boisterous Tea Party members to The House of Representatives in 2010. "The greatest chaos and a socio-political disaster" that’s seriously will permanently impacting our survivor as the Great United States of America. Now, we have Ryan the liar, a hopeful that maneuvers members in the un-ruling House of Representatives aspiring fora big job as our country VP.
Is it our state of mental amnesia so acute that’s preventing us to acknowledged that Ryan, is a full flesh product of the incoherent Tea Party/Republican amalgamation, presently residing in the House of Representatives, they have a dishonorable 15% approval rate. Could this person make sound, integral, non-radical, honest, Vice-Presidential, and possibly Presidential decision if elected?? I wish America to recover fast from the disease before November, 2012, to vote full Democratic ticket. It’s a very serious, unfortunate business making the wrong voting decision for our future if both of this liars get to the White house!
Most of them have been in office too long and some of them should never have been elected in the first place. They should not get any special consideration for health care and their pay should be up for review every year, by their constituents, based on their performance against their peers, in representing their state, their government, and their country. Becoming a professional politician should not exempt you from having to experience what most every other working stiff has to deal with everyday.
We have a Republican majority leader, in the house, basically refusing to allow a Democrat proposal be discussed, and we have a Democrat majority leader, in the senate, refusing to allow a Republican bill to be brought to the floor for discussion.
What do we, the people that HIRED them, get from our employees? Nothing! They're good at talking a game, but do nothing of any consequence to earn the outrageous salaries WE pay them.
As stated previously, we need term limits, for them, and NO retirements. At the same time, they would not be allowed to vote on salary increases for congress, it would have to be brought to the public to raise their salaries. They would also have to be enrolled in Social Security, and I'll be generous here, they can have, in addition, at 100% their donation, a private retirement plan.
I don't see any of this happening, as long as the people paying NO taxes, and reaping all knds of benefits, keep voting for their favorite politician.
Our original politicians, became so at a risk to their lives. The British would kill them. Our current bunch has no risk and are all about re election and entitlements. Our founding fathers would serve their country for a term and then go back to whatever they were doing before being elected. This country never needed career poiticians. Just good people who scarificed to serve their country. Can you say term limits?
You can't fix stupid....... but you can vote them out.
We have the BEST government that MONEY CAN BUY.
What's that, you have no money? Sorry, your vote is irrelevant!
How can you fix the corrupt political system????
It is a shame that the lawmakers who do nothing just keep getting their benefits and paycheck and there is no way to fix it because they certainly won't vote to end their percs that cost taxpayers more and more money every year.
with obama issuing 940 executive orders in four years...we really arent even using congress to run the country, send them to the house obama is a racist communist freak that is going to get us all killed...and the whackjob liberal worthless and weak pantywastes are going to take the biggest hit
Back in the dark ages when I was grwoing up we all decried the senioity system in Congress. But looking at the legislation that come out of Congress in the last few decades, I't day maybe we were better off. The senoriity system at least took some of the politics out of choosing comittee chairs.
On the pay issue raised by this article: When you underpay goverment officials, corruption is much worse. Autmatic pay gets politics out of it.
The real problem with congress is US, all of US. We are very divided, we say terrible things about people whoe disagree with us and we litterally hate the other side. That's just plain WRONG!
We have a group of Men and Woman behaving as if they were children playing in a sandbox kicking sand at one another. Over the past 50+ years, these esteemed individuals claimed to represent us. The represented us with heavy regulations on business. They burdened us with heavy taxes. They granted special rights to assorted specific groups within our country, (both illegal and legal), they became rich while the United States began a trek backwards.
Our Public Education System is a sham, our Healthcare system is more about Liability Management and Risk Aversion which offers the greatest level of attention to detail in the paperwork, the laws, the opportunity to bring a lawsuit, and the concept of Healthcare is a secondary issue.
We are rewarding failure and dereliction while punishing Business and Success. We focus on rights of several presummed special classes of people yet we have no Energy Policy. Could it be that the focus of the country is entirely misplaced? Could it be that these Self Esteemed Representatives have sacrificed our country for the rights of few? We tax and punish those whom provide the avenue of funding for the courts to rule special privaledge to some, we tax and punish those that provide the jobs, we are rewarding dereliction and there is only one direction that will lead this country.
Look at the youth wearing pants at or below their crotch displaying underwear. Look at the government employees you encounter at any government office. Look at the rankings of our infant mortality, education ranking in the world, consumption, obesity, and let us not forget DEBT!
Vote with intelligence as there is no chance of success for any opportunity that presents itself while disrgarding intelligence. Recognize the consequences of these choses self esteemed representatives. Note the direction we are heading and be assertive and forward thinking.
Are any of these self proclaimed representatives representing more than themselves? If none of this makes sense, at least have the foresight to teach your children the Chinese Language.
