This is how I see it. Say a miracle happened and the people of this country came out of their slumber and voted all the bums out. Then what? I have noticed that people have VERY short memories. If they voted the bums out they would invariably go back to sleep, apathy would again reign and those who sit behind the scenes and are responsible for corrupting what few honest politicians we may have had, will once again sink their claws into whatever fresh meat we did elect.
Also, Americans have gotten too used to government programs to take care of them. To really fix our nation we would have to do away with all these programs, forcing people to rely upon their own wit, skill, and most importantly, their ability to manage their finances.
Can you imagine telling someone they may have to wait a few years to buy that big screen TV until they have SAVED for it, instead of whipping out the Visa? People want THINGS, and they want them NOW.
Americans would need to return to living frugal lives, buying only essential items. No more dvd’s cell phones, I pads, and all the other gadgets and gizmos that people buy to amuse themselves.
Not only do we need to rid our country of the bums in office, but we need a drastic change in our attitudes, and I just don’t see that happening.
It is good to see that my articles are being read by others, aside from the choir who already see things as I do. It is also good to see that you are not just taking my word for it, but researching the data for yourself. But people like you are few and far between and we need a whole lot more people to have your desire to learn the truth before anything will ever change.
If it does happen, it may be too late to save this country.
Just my two cents…
