it'll be interesting to watch congress just from the fallout of this one single election.
The arrogance of this President and Majority leaders has suprised even me. I have been quite critical in my views of Obama, but blatently telling Americans he is full speed ahead rather that aknowledge that the people want a different direction.
While I am a Republican I am pissed at them as well. The lot of them in Washington, Democrats and Republicans are not listening. They consider themselves the Elite and we the people below them. Our founding fathers NEVER envisioned such a Government.
I personally think that most everyone does not see the overall picture. Tell me if I am wrong. It started as far back as FDR but has picked up more steam more recently. Lets start at Clinton. He was quite liberal, and there was a voter revolt and there was a shift in power in the house and senate. Same thing happened to "W" He had a majority and as Clinton and the rest of them ALL the power become too much and the voters tried to steer in a different direction. Now that is not all the problem. Voters are easily lied to and quickly forget what is real and what really makes this country great. Look at the attack on Capitalism. Without Capitalism you cannot have a stable Government. After all Government does not make money but yet needs money to operate. But for some crazy reason Capitalism is made to look evil, and blindly people look to Government to solve the problem. The problem was on the brink of solving itself when the Government rewarded bad Corporate behavoir by robbing Billions of dollars from American Citizens and giving it to the Banks and Auto industry. In the natural order of business, if you do not run your business right, you go broke, the people will not buy your product if it is no good, they will not use your service if there is a better service available. Corporate greed was about to be FIXED, these companies were an the brink of collapse. Do you really believe that as these companies collapsed that the need of service and product was going to dissapear? No, Investors would have been there sifting through the ashes and rebuilt the Auto industry and the Financial markets, the fact that the Government has intervened is only prolonging the pain on the people. The practices that brought business to the brink has been propped up and continueing business as usual. It is my prediction that at some point this trainwreck in the making will in fact collide. With the ammount of debt the country created, there will bo no safety net.
OOps let me get back on track. So along comes big O. Boy can the man speak...with a teleprompter. But the voters were trying to steer in another direction and bought the line Obama fed you. There were sceptics like myself that did a little digging and went "Oh Crap" I seen him for who he is immediatly. Illinoise had high crime, high taxes, high corruption, failing schools and the list goes on. As you looked into the names of the people in all these failures Barack Obama kept coming up. But the majority of people did not see past his eloquent speeches. But the point is that Democrats, Independants as well as Republicans voted for him. The voice was we want Washington to CHANGE. Unfortunately the pendulum just swung right past the people and went ever so much farther than it was the other way to the LEFT. The Massachusetts election was yet another shout that this is not what we want, not only are they not listening. The Democrat leadership feel they are now beyond accountability. Is there something we do not know yet? There is a lot of power being grabbed up in Washington. I know it sounds Fringe......but have we the people let this go too far, and they know that they are going to retain power? Will we be able to get them out in 2012? I know this is out there, but is there going to be an election in 2012? I do not know. But Obama, Reid and Pelosi are really acting like there is not going to be a consequence. I pray that they do have to answer to We The People and we get a lot smarter about who we put in the Highest Office of the Greatest Country on Earth.
