Gutless Congress

How long could the political disfunction of the congress go on if the American people don't rise up and change the faces for somethng new..From the constant political wrangling up there now it seems the obligation of the elected to their constituents is taking a way, way backseat to the ambitions of almost every jackleg up there..Promises, promises, promises during the electioneering and not a single one kept in the last five years..Maybe I won't live long enough to see it, but I would like to see the presidency cut to one six year term since nothing is ever accomplished when the pres becomes a lame duck..In this case there will be three years of nothing done..Can our country afford this kind of do nothingness?? What if we paid congress like they want to pay the other federal workers? Good pay if you work hard and earn incentive pay. I'll drink to that!!!I can hardly stand it because the voters have not seen to make them serve us since we are the ones to put them there..The beat goes on though year after year after year..Is this what we want folks? And we criticize the royalty of England!!!!

  • I've been thinking the same thing. I also believe it is time for a new political party. I have thown my old fatique cap in the ring with the Neolibterians who I know do not stand a chance in hell of winning much next election. But, then again that is what people thought about the republicans in 1855.

    The neolibs embrace the values that I embrace-mainly freedom and liberty and les government envolvement in my life. The party is nt anti nor pro religion-we just figure that to each his own and government has no place in religion and vice versa. We also have no use for the PC crowd nor the socialist left. However, we do embrace some of the values the democrats have adotped-or at least claim they have. For one we want to see drugs decriminalized and but we also want a stop to corporate and public welfare for those who ahve the ability to work and earn a living. The Neo lib is different from the old libertarian in that we believe in a strong nation defense and reject the idea of isolationism. We want to see a major tax reform-and differ within on what we want to see. I for one want a consummer tax aand all other taxes including property taxes eliminated. Don't want to pay then do not consume.

    I appreciate you dropping by my site. I get on a rant once in a while but for the most part I don't take life too seriously. I figure it is here to enjoy and I plan on enjoying every day of it that I have left.
