Once in a great while, we as Americans strongly voice an opinion on a particular topic and deliver a resounding voice to those whom we have appointed
as a governing body.
With the recent bailout crisis, it appears that we have two situations unfolding: The first being that of the voice of the people, which appears to
say no bailout, and the other being that of the government that is telling us the bailout is going to happen because it needs to.
Our voice, as a people to our representatives regarding the bailout appears to be vetoed for the voice of the government which through its actions
says this has to be done.
Legislation without representation? Or is this sound logic by those who govern us in realizing that while we the people have a voice, sometimes doing
the right thing supersedes our voice as a people.
When the peoples voice is not honored by the government in terms of continuing to draft a bailout that is unwanted, but has been said is required to
keep free markets sound, Does it not put democracy at odds with capitalism?
Something to think about...
