Looking at the votes on the Debt Reduction Act my first thoughts were anger and depression. But I realize that there is a little ray of sunshine here by looking at the names and numbers of those who voted against the Act. Perhaps things are beginning to change in Washington. If those who voted "no" and those in the TEA Party can stay strong and stand up to the propaganda being fired at them by not only the Left but by some in the Republican party, there might be real hope for a growing change to politics as we know it.
That's a big 'if' though, as I read headlines this afternoon (see below). In spite of what the majority of Americans think and want, Congress plowed ahead like blind and deaf donkeys, doing what they wanted.
... The American people think the last several weeks in Washington have been a disgrace. In fact, the words most often volunteered to the pollsters were "ridiculous," "disgusting," and "stupid." The response was negative from 75% of Republicans, 72% of Democrats and 72% of independents. More than twice as many people have a more negative view of President Obama (38%) because of the debate than a more positive view (18%). Three times as many people have a more negative view of Speaker John Boehner (34%) than a more positive view (11%). (YahooNews)
According to Rasmussen Reports, "An overwhelming majority of voters nationwide (75%) want members of Congress to take a pay cut until the federal budget is balanced, and a plurality also thinks the president should chop his salary in half until that time." That sounds good and I understand the thinking, but politicians don't get rich from their salaries, it's all the side deals that bad their bank accounts. What can we do about that?
I'm afraid my ray of sunshine is turning into storm clouds on the horizon.
What can the future of the United States of America be when a small group of politicians, representing a majority of voters want to balance the budget, pay our bills, cut our expenses, and live within our means -- are ridiculed and compared to terrorists who slaughter thousands of innocent people across the globe.
Something is very wrong.
We must accept the fact that those people truly believe in what they are doing to this country. They believe that spending money we don't have will somehow produce a positive outcome. How do you deal with that?
Daniel, in his article The Emperor Of Debt Is Naked, states " .... If everything implodes, then they get a chance at creating a socialist republic. If it doesn't, they [think they] can keep on spending."
The storms have moved in and I'm discouraged again. Where do we go from here?
There are no new frontiers, no "West" to go to, no place to form new nations. We have no choice but to take back what once was here in America. It's going to be a long, hard road.
No one seems interested in whether our President is actually legal or not.
