Business As Usual
Our elected/employed politicians have been focused on their party, getting money for reelection, prestige, rigging the system to hinder political competition and building their salaries, benefits, pensions and perks. Taking care of the necessary business of the people has taken a back seat.
Our political employees argue about the bills they pass into law because one politician gets a pet project passed while another politician does not. Such actions are disgraceful and even scandalous. Why? Numerous attachments to these massive bills they want approved have nothing to do with the main theme of what they tell us these bills are for. In the real world, fraud is what most of us call such conduct.
Politicians roadblock and stonewall a lot of good that can be done for our people and nation so their self interests and their particular party can prosper as well as their reelection opportunities, pensions and future financial opportunities. The politicians spend enormous amounts of our money on projects the government was never given the authority to fund.
As individual citizens, it is of the utmost importance that we research and study the founding documents of our nation. The Declaration of Independence, our national and state Constitutions and the Bill of Rights are excellent starting points. It is important to see how far our politicians have taken us off course. When we understand this, it is easier to understand why we are languishing in our current predicaments.
The politicians have ranked special interests high above the common good of every American citizen. Who will pay me the most, seems to be the common thread among most of our politicians. They have the nerve to wonder why so many people give them little interest or no attention. They have the impudence to wonder why more of us do not get involved in the political process. A person can only talk into a deaf ear for so long. We have lives to live, but the decisions made by government without our genuine consent have removed the wind from our sails.
We as a people can only be ignored and taken advantage of so much before we just tune ourselves out. In spite of the failure of politicians to properly serve us, we must not ignore our duties as American citizens. We must demand our rightful authority over our employed politicians and be adamant in making them serve their assigned responsibilities and their servitude toward us. We are not here to serve them or to fund their self interests. We cannot allow them to damage or curtail our way of life any more than they already have. It is not the party – it is the people that matter!
We can not compromise the message we must send to our politicians. We must give it with perfect clarity and understanding. Get back to the business of the people or you will be removed from your office and position.
It has become commonplace for our politicians and high
positioned bureaucrats to favor big business and certain special interest
groups. Why? They pay big money to support the reelection pursuits of
politicians and supply incentives and perks to bureaucrats in authoritative
positions. As they are busy scratching each other’s backs,
Our politicians and unelected top bureaucrats accommodate big businesses because the politicians have turned government into a big business in and of itself. In turn, politicians enact laws that favor the high corporate structure, multinational and chain businesses, regardless what the fallout will be upon the people – you and me. Leading bureaucrats cater to expand large corporate entities and other goals big business and top paying special interest groups want to accomplish.
All this frustrates us hard working Americans. We get stuck footing every one of their bills regardless how much money we have left to live on; regardless if we are able to keep up with our own financial commitments and responsibilities; regardless of our own local community necessities.
The unethical practices of politicians have become common knowledge among all of us. Still, many of our high paid governmental workers continue to get away with their unprincipled behavior. They pass laws riddled with loopholes so they can continue their schemes, or what many of us in the real world call, shams and scams.
If any of us tried to do in the business world, some of the things politicians do in our city halls, our state capitals and in D.C., we would be put out of business, while some of us would be run out of town. For other practices conducted by certain politicians, we would be tried, sentenced, humiliated, stiffly fined and locked up for years.
Since they are politicians, in many circumstances, it seems they have placed themselves above the law. Often they simply write or rewrite laws to accommodate their own agendas.
We Are Not Stupid Like They Try To Convince Us To Believe,
They Just Fail To Properly Inform Us
More people are becoming aware that fewer people are in
control of the various major industries in
We no longer have proper representation in government like our Constitution provides for us. For the most part, the formalities are the same, but the actual workings of the system are far from what has been the American way as we knew it.
Government and big business are having a grand old party, but
they forgot to invite the rest of us. Instead, we are forced to pay for all the
Embarrassing & Upsetting
Many actions of politicians have stepped beyond embarrassing and have moved into the arenas of humiliation and disgrace. Too many politicians have the backbone of a jellyfish when it comes to serving and taking a solid stand for the people. We pay them extremely well and they are terribly abusing their positions and privileges.
Principles and morals have disgracefully become relics of the past. We must demand the renewal of such essential traits. If we refuse to, I would hate to be in the shoes of our children and grandchildren.
If they can not take the heat in standing in defense of the people they claim to serve, they should have the decency to get out of the fire to make room for someone that will. We need individuals who are willing to do everything it takes to protect and defend us from every kind of attack and abuse. We need individuals who will put aside and ignore their own self interests and do what is right for us all! We must bring all questionable conduct and abuses of position to an abrupt halt before anymore insult is added to our nation’s reputation and before we sink any lower as a nation and as a people.
While Politicians Are Preoccupied With Their Own Self Interests…
At the same time politicians are working hard to secure their own finances, portfolios, resumes and future, Mom and Pop struggle just to make ends meet. Marginal care and consideration are given to a large share of our society. More of us are being taken advantage of because of our kind spirit and our enormous level of forbearance.
In general, our politicians have no clue what public servant
means anymore because they have become self serving and at our expense. We need
to be honest with each other and with ourselves. That is the only way we will
be able to reinstate
Many other Americans are also speaking up because of the way
politicians have distanced themselves from us and the economic trials they have
forced us into. We can restore
The Californian’s flexed their rightful authority in firing their

It Is Time To Be Heard
One of the main reasons politicians get away with so much is because so many of us say nothing. We feel our voice makes no difference, and to a certain extent this is true. We say we do not have the time to get involved, and to a certain extent this is true. It is because so many of us say nothing, or just grumble under our breath, is why the politicians get away with all that they are. This is not right and it is time they get the message loud and clear; that we demand the service they have been employed to fulfill and nothing less.
We have every right to demand conduct that is far above
reproach from our hired/elected, publicly paid politicians, our leading, and
all of our bureaucratic employees, as well as from the high corporate structure
It is the solemn duty of every individual American citizen to speak up when our political and bureaucratic employees step outside their established job descriptions. To do that, we must study and understand what their role of employment entails and restrict them within their assigned borders.
This is our duty as American citizens. We, as American citizens have neglected our responsibilities in defending our rights. We have allowed our hired staff to get out of control. For this reason we are suffering from the many hardships that have befallen us.
We cannot allow these employees to keep crossing over the
line and moving away from honor, loyalty and respect for we citizens, our best
interests and the true interests of our nation. When they put themselves,
corporations and special interests before, we the people of these
Depending on the offense, we may have to subject them to the authority of the courts just like the rest of us are held accountable. We must hold our politicians to a much higher standard. We must replace our employees who are derelict in their duties. We must elect genuine individuals that really care; individuals who are willing to do the job they are assigned to do and swear to fulfill.
Politicians Are Breaking Us As A Nation For Whatever Reasons.
Our money has no actual value backing it up, unless you consider us, our land and our property as collateral. What we refer to as our currency is nothing more than “I owe you” notes that we swap back and forth, here and there. Banks do little more than make log entries, which we refer to as monetary transactions. Congress turned over the control of our money to the dictates of the privately owned and operated Federal Reserve Corporation which has monopolized the currencies of the world many years ago.
All these necessities cost a lot of money to accomplish. These are the areas we need to focus on to regain our strength and stamina as a nation, as well as our national security and defenses. We cannot continue supporting other nations when we are tapping ourselves out and going critically further in debt. The only place this will bring us is into a third world status.
These seventeen pinnacles clearly speak volumes to let us know we can not expect the government to do what must be done for our American businesses, our economy and our people today – they just do not seem to get it, or they are just not interested in getting it.
Too many families have, and continue to suffer needlessly because of our economic conditions - the predicaments are surmounting and worsening every day. We have to defend our nation when our public servants fail to. The political track record speaks with perfect clarity. We must bring the carelessness and negligence to a screeching halt. We have to do, what we must do.
911 Was Severely Tragic And Also A Definite Wakeup Call!
Terrorism As Most Of Us Currently Understand It
Did Not Cause Our Economic Deterioration.
We cannot blame “terrorism” for our present calamities. This steamroller began long before the word terrorism became so commonly used. We need look no further than our local city halls, our state capitals and nation’s capitol to find the culprits behind these devastating tragedies. The ones we entrusted to watch out for our local and national interests (our elected/hired politicians) have terribly and insultingly let us down as individuals and as a nation. We all need to realize we have the lawful responsibilities to fire individuals that refuse to fulfill their employed duties and requirements.
