"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

We Don't Need Career Politicians

If you're like me, you're sick and tired of the corruption inherent in our political system. When did it start? Why have we continued to allow it, even after we became aware of it?  Why have we become complicit in the "concept" of that's the way it's always been? And when will we, as resposnible citizens, stand up for ourselves and tell Washington (and ALL those individuals who aspire to become career politicians), "THAT IS ENOUGH!"

I think that time is fast approaching. I am guardedly hopeful the beginning of that stand will be apparent in November. I am hopeful it will continue through the 2012 and 2014 elections. And I pray that it continues for the rest of my life, at least.

We must realize that we do not need career politicians taking up space in Washington - or in any other big city or small town around America. Nor should we want them, any longer! The country didn't start out that way, and we should stop that insanity immediately. What we do need in Washington - and in everyone of our city and state governmental positions - is problem solvers. People from the business sector, and from all walks of life (expect lawyers, we've had our fill of them!) willing to analyze the problems we're faced with and make tough objective decisions to fix them. The whole world is watching America to see how the ideological battle for her future will play out. The whole world is watching to see just how strong our Founding Fathers created those documents that formed this Republic. It is an historic battle. Peaceful, but historic none-the-less. Remember, come November (and every subsequent election thereafter)...

We don't need career politicians in America, we need problem solvers!

If You Are Not Outraged, You Are Not Paying Attention - Or, You're Part Of The Problem!
