I started this blog in September and this is the first time I have responded to a reader's comment. Well, here goes!
America’s government has become so large and complex that it is even baffling to our Congressional representatives; however, the fog could be lifted if they would spend a little more time each day “reading” the documents they blindly sign. For over two hundred years Americans have tried their best to elect individuals who would best represent their interests and…when the voting was done…they went back to their everyday existence and prayed (yes, prayed) that the representatives would do their jobs. Somewhere along the way our members of congress forgot their loyalties were to their constituents, those they went to Washington to represent, and they pledged allegiance to the party they were affiliated with instead. This left them vulnerable to the more influential individuals within the party and castrated their power. It is only fair to note that large populations have a myriad of desires and needs, thus compromises must be made along the way, but not when it comes to national security or our Constitutional freedoms! You asked: Do you still have a government at all or only a gang of traitors, less and less even PRETENDING to care about your country? We have a government still, but there are individuals within it who are “sleepers” who wish to see our great nation implode. With the stimulus package we were shocked to see that Congressional members couldn’t pass a salt shaker (across the table) without “pork”! You said: But even more astonishing it is to see MILLIONS of Americans... ELECTING such "governments"... I would insert the word horrifying, as well. This Presidential campaign blitz was a three-fold attack involving the liberal media, catering to the young voters (many uninformed), and the desire to vote for a black candidate…even if he was a socialist. People were naïve and thought he was “only a little bit socialistic”. They never expected President Obama to be so aggressive in his efforts to swing America “left”. He hit the ground running! Suddenly, the socialists came out of the woodwork and now many of those who elected him…not all Americans voted for him…are recoiling at some of his actions. It is indeed going to take the majority of Americans to unite and get back a true "Balance of Power" in the House of Representatives and the Senate. I take solace in the fact that one-third of our Senators are up for reelection every two years.
Note: If we don't unite for the cause of freedom, we may ignite for the loss of freedom.
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
