Good House Cleaning---and the Senate, too!
With the presidential election looming on the horizon, it will be a good time to do some serious House cleaning. The current small Republican majority there needs to be boosted so it can stymie any new initiatives of the Obama administration if, God forbid, he should be re-elected. The government of the United States has deviated from the principals of our Founding Fathers as can be imagined. It has become so corrupt that it needs to be re-set to undo the evil that it now embodies. It no longer represents the will of the people. The coalition that makes up the military/industrial complex dominates the Congress like a swarm of sharks does a school of sardines. Aided by a media that only tells the public what it wants them to know, they scratch each others backs with legislation that benefits them by expanding their power base. The problem, as I see it, is that we have professional politicians. They are not servants of the people, but self-serving power seekers. Once they have obtained a seat of power, they will do whatever it takes to hold on to it. It is the old adage being lived out in front of our eyes: "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely." American needs to wake up to the truth. Unfortunately, most of the public would rather not get involved. Those who say they want change only want it if someone else is the one making it. Meanwhile, the professional politicians use every trick they can to hold on to what they have and squeeze the working middle class all the harder. Pretty soon, the taxpayers who uphold the government are going to react to what is being done to them. I only hope it is not too late to save what once was the greatest country on earth.
