It has be said that people get the government they deserve. We have continually elected officials who vote for increases in pay for themselves and
larger and larger entitlements for their "constituents."
I am speaking to the Americans on this board. I am sure that most of us get up and go to work every day, trying to earn enough money to pay for our
homes, our cars, and to care for out famleis. And then we vote these same scoundrels into office over and over again, even though they obviously
don't have our best interest at heart. We have become sheep, meekly putting these theives back in office, year after year. Yet these politcians
don't think about us.
In this country, we have a class of people who don't work, have never worked, and have no inclination to work. This same clase of people have no
sense of social responsiblity, yet these are the same people the politicians cater too.
Now the politicians are establishing a new entitlement, one of corproate welfare. So now, in addition to supporting our families, and a class of
people who choose not to work, we get the privelege of supporting corporations that have CEO's with golden parachutes that guarantee that if the
corporation fails, they still get several million dollars to take with them when they jump ship.
We need more people in office like Ron Paul. And there is only one way to get them. Vote those now in office out. Vote in new members, and
if they don't cut entitlements, vote themseves pay DECREASES, and take long hard looks at the companies that are outsourcin jobs, then we vote
them out the next time around. It will take several years, but we, as Americans, can get the government we deserve.
What kind of goverment do we deserve?
A government that punishes companies that outsource jobs to other countries.
Agovernment that encourages it's citizens to get out and obtain jobs, so they can support themselves, rather than living on entitlements.
A government that is truly by the people, of the people and for the people.
But we can only do it if we refuse to be slaves to congress(federal and state) and only if we stand up and proclaim that we are free men and women,
and prove it with our votes.
I wish Ron Paul had a chance at the Presidency. And I wish there where more like him in Congress.
