"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

Taxation Without Proper Representation, What's Our Recourse?

What gives our elected officials the right to tax us, and then spend that money to buy the votes to pass legislation that will cost us all even MORE money? What is wrong with this Congress? What is wrong with Americans for taking this without some meaningful reaction? Instead, we sit in our living rooms and a.) hide our heads in the sitcoms, or b.) complain to our spouse, but do nothing. There are some who are writing their Congressmen, but that has had little effect with this congress, so what's the point.

We have all been taught that actions have consequences, but there seems to be NO consequences for this group. So what's the game plan? Can we afford to wait until the 2010 elections, hoping that there will be a substantial backlash that will reshape the make-up of our Congress. And even if there is, what guarantee do we have that those we newly elect won't contract corruptousitus?

How long can we procrastinate before the silent majority decides that matters can best be addressed though our own hands and actions?

Wake Up America! This Congress is too arrogant and superior to listen to you.
