I hope, at this point, we can all agree that the greatest enemy to our Representative form of government is “Bi-partisanship.” After this recent debate over the raising of the Debt Limit, and the successful screwing of the taxpayer yet again, it is clear that “Bi-partisanship” just leads to deals being made so egotistic politicians can say they made a deal.
I, for one, do not want my Congressional Representative, the person I picked to speak for me in Washington due to their stated beliefs, to give up those beliefs for the Politically Correct label of “Bi-partisan.”
I don’t want someone who claims to be for smaller government and less spending, to agree with a plan, in my name, that spends 5 times more, in one day, than the spread-over 10 years, never gonna happen anyway, proposed cuts.
We have just handed obama and his America-hating progressive compatriots in the government, on both sides of the aisle, what they have wanted for the last hundred years. An automatic mechanism, attached to a bill designed to collapse the economic system, that will also decimate the military.
All the progressives have to do is hold up this “Special Committee” in Congress, (read: committee set up to cover the asses of cowardly politicians who refuse to stand up and make the hard decisions they were elected too make). By refusing to cut anything from their sacred cow entitlements, they will ensure the completion of their grand plan.
It is up to the voters to continue the fight we started last election cycle. At this point, many Independent voters are realizing these current economic policies have not worked, either here or anywhere in the world, at any time in history. Even many Democrat voters realize this country is on the way to financial disaster without radical changes in policy.
This is why Senator John Kerry, D., MA, (who, I believe, served in Viet Nam), finds it necessary to call for the censorship of ideas HE thinks are so incorrect, no one should face the potential harm they cause…(like getting 87 new people into one House of Congress).
We need to keep our principles, and elect those that do the same. Better no deal, on ideological lines of principle, than an ethically challenged, morally bankrupt bastardization of the principles of both sides, resulting in deals no principled person of either side believes in, and further eroding our faith in our own citizen-government’s ability to exist within the parameters of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, created by and for “We The People,” and not, “We The Rulers.”
