Opinion from the desk of the Editor
A question I hear asked from all branches of the political spectrum…….there seems to be NO one that has anything good to say about the government and especially the Congress….
The original intent was for there to be three branches of government and that would keep the political process honest….The Congress was suppose to be the representatives of the people, chosen by the people…..and now it is a worthless political appendage and what do we do with a worthless appendage? We get rid of it before it turns gangrenous….
Maybe it is time to re-think the system……because the Congress no longer functions as an integral part of government…..
Meanwhile back to the point.
Shall we take a few minutes and review the case against our beloved Congress?
1–the Congress approval rating is about 7-10%…a recent survey by the Gallup, I believe, ran a recent survey and the Congress is loathed by almost everyone in the country.
2-the Congress works less than 4 total months a session……the rest of the time they are out fondling the wallets of fat cats….
3-when the Congress is actually in town they spend most of their time on hearings that accomplish nothing but wasting the taxpayers money.
4-the Congress has passed less than 25 bills since the session began and most of the ones passed are such pressing problems as naming bridges and post offices with a highway thrown in ever so often to break up the monotony…….
5-then there is the billions wasted on paying people that are basically nothing more than wards of the state……
Now there is SCOTUS or the Supreme Court of the US…….the branch that is suppose to act as the referee between the prez and the Congress but instead it is unraveling the rights that were supposedly guaranteed to the citizens and assisting the takeover of the government by big business……
Now that leaves the prez who is virtually impotent in executing his duties as the leader of the country….his hands are being partially tied by a worthless Congress and a Court that cares nothing for the rights of the citizens of this country.
So far we have had NO government in 6 years…..we have a bunch of overpaid worthless parasites that do nothing they were “hired” to do…..especially the Congress.
It is time for the people to take a good hard and rational look at the Congress and the way we do business….in other words, it is time for a change……not reform. Reform is as worthless as the Congress we elect. We can either change or sit back and let the Congress totally destroy our way of governance.
There is the rub….depending on the very people that cannot vote the parasites out of office……..we have an election is coming soon and these people will re-elect the very people they bitch about….so is change ever gonna come? Not in my lifetime.
