Ok, what planet are you living on? Have you not been paying attention to what is going on? Have you seen the shift to socialism in our country? Have you been observing what Congress has been doing or not doing?
Just in case you don’t know, let me fill you in on a couple things.
The Bush tax cuts expire at the end of this year. Congress has been trying to address this issue but decided it was just too tough to deal with and adjourned for their “fall break”. They might get to it, along with a lot of other issues, when they come back. This is an example of them not really wanting to address what needs to be done.
Another example: did you know that Congress and their many many overpaid aides are not required to comply with all the insider trading rules that the rest of us in this country have to comply with. This should be an outrage. The Wall Street Journal, in the October 11, 2010 issue, has documented a number of occurrences that would normally be insider trading violation issues except for the fact that the potential perps were Congress people and/or their aides. How much more aloof and out of touch can they be? How could a law like this get passed in the first place? This should tell us that things need to change.
Not to mention that Congress has their own elitist health care plan and retirement plan.
Do you realize that there are 536 people in our country that decide everything that happens? We the people don’t decide anything except the election of our 100 Senators and 435 Representatives and 1 President. We have a unique opportunity in this upcoming election and ones after that. We can change out all of them over time.
I urge you to vote in the upcoming elections. This is the greatest country in the world however all great civilizations rise and fall. If we don’t do something, we could be on the downside of greatness. Our debt is too high and getting higher due to rising annual deficits. No country can keep on doing this.Look at what is happening in Europe. France and its long time socialism are having major fiscal problems. They are trying to raise their retirement age from 60 to 62 and the people are going nuts. Can you believe this; they don’t want to work past age 60 and they want the state to take care of them. Where do they think the money comes from?
Same thing is going on in Great Britain. They are having massive cutbacks and the people are raising hell.
That is what happens with socialism; the people think that money comes from the government and is unending. They don’t want to work and have lost all initiative.
This could happen to us if we don’t do something about it.
THE TIME IS NOW. Vote for a change in Congress. We need term limits. We need people in congress who will really represent what the majority of the country wants and not what will benefit them individually. We need Congress to have the same health care and pension plans that the rest of us have. We need to reverse the socialistic trends that we have embarked on. We need to reward entrepreneurship and initiative.
GET OUT AND VOTE!
