"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Congress, Listen Up!

You have been irresponsible - for decades. You continue to pass pork infested bills - so that your constituents will think you are working for them, when actually you are working only for yourself and the insidious corruption that surrounds you. You have enabled a system that allows for legal "conflict of interest" through the lobby industry and PACS. You have, in an obvious manner through the Stimulus Bill, paid bribes to constituent groups (big labor), for their support in terms of money, muscle and resources. That is despicable! In every session more and more new bills and issues are addressed, while existing problems are forgotten and neglected. To do the job of "preserving and protecting" the Constitution of the United States forget about ANY new legislation, and fix the problems we have. The unfunded liability for Social Security ($10.7 Trillion), Medicare/Medicaid ($39.7 Trillion) and prescription drugs ($8.6 Trillion) is currently over $59 Trillion dollars! That's money we owe to Americans, money that was supposed be be held in a protected fund, but money we don't have any longer - money we'll need to print if we're going to support the programs in the future - BECAUSE YOU SPENT IT ON PORK!!. That means HUGE inflation! Fix That Problem! The Current Tax Code is over 60,000 pages long. It's so complex that even members of Congress can not get their taxes figured properly. Change that tax system to a Flat Tax or Fair Tax system. Fix That Problem! And Fix the deficit! When Obama came into office we had the largest deficit ever - nearly a trillion dollars. It is now Trillions and Trillions of dollars. What are you doing??????? What could possibly be going through your collective mind? Secure our Borders - Immediately! Do you think all the issues that involve illegal immigration - health care, voting, entitlement programs, etc, etc can EVER be fixed before you do that? Regardless of how many congressional sessions are required, fix these problems before you address any other issues. That is what you are elected to do - and yet Congress after Congress after Congress has neglected that responsibility. Congress after Congress after Congress has hidden their collective heads in the sand, hoping some miracle will occur that will make these issues disappear. Not gonna happen in our lifetime. My view? If you aren't going to do the job that's required, step away from the table and STOP RUNNING FOR A SEAT!!! Wake Up America!
