With the 9/11 report release and congress going on vacation at a time we are being told we are at war...What is wrong with this image?
Good post, it points directly to the heart of the government's problem, CONGRESS, and you are correct that we must use our vote to change this
problem. Too much focus is placed on the presidential election, when most don't pay attention to what our representatives are spending their time on
in the Capitol.
I remember the "midnight vote" to give themselves a raise and then they slipped out of the nation's capital in the dark of night.
Congress runs the country, and if you want a change, you must change congress.
Check out your representatives, see what they have done, hold them to close scrutiny, if they fail your tests they don't deserve your vote.
If the Left & Right want to verbally bash each other, seek out someone who will speak about the issues that concern you, I am not talking about
promises here, we have been hearing them for far too long, I am talking about someone who will discuss the ideas, the possible implementation, the
from beginning to end, all the boring details. Anyone can promise, we need someone who can deliver on their promises.
It will take time but in order to get to the end of the road, one must begin with the first step, it is time Americans took that first step.
