Our founding fathers never envisioned a United States run by full time lawmakers.
In order to justify their jobs, lawmakers feel they need to write laws. When do we have enough laws? When we are being strangled by redundant laws. Americans are currently drowning in new laws that are nothing more than rewritten existing laws. We have reached the point of saturation.
Businesses are drowning in red tape. And what is the purpose of all of this red tape? To what end are new regulations being put in place that amount to nothing more than a tweaking of existing laws? Control. Do businesses need to be controlled? No.
Do we Americans feel we need more control over our lives by the people we elect to protect and care for us? One needs only look no further than the current phenomena of the “Occupy” movement to know the answer.
We are at a balancing point between too much government control and living a life of freedoms that so represents the very foundation of this nation. How did we allow government to get so out of control? By fooling ourselves into believing our votes don’t count.
When we decide not to vote, we give up our voice to tell our representative government officials that they can run the country anyway they want. When we decide not to vote, we effectively give up control over our lives. Why would anyone consciously do this? I don’t know of any valid reason. Do you?
This great experiment in government that we call America has gone terribly wrong. Now is the time – and many would agree the time is long overdue – for the people (unwitting victims) of this experiment-gone-wrong to right the mistakes of allowing capitalism to play such a major role in our lives.
Don’t get me wrong, I think capitalism and the free-enterprise system is the way to go. But we have lost control of it and have allowed it to become the end-all to prosperity. So much so that it is only benefiting our leaders and is tearing this nation apart. There is so much more to life than making money.
Most aspects of daily life have greatly improved and for that we have our government to thank. But the government that helped us get to this point is in the past. Today’s government supports only the making of more money. It is too bloated and needs to be retooled.
Vote. Everyone, Vote. Protest what our elected officials are doing to us. Let them know that the direction this country is headed in is not desirable. Let tehm know they have lost their way. We need to put them back on the right path.
This grand idea of creating a ‘One world government’ is white-wash for corporations to improve their profit margins. It may be working fine for them but the cost is much too great for humanity.
As an American, I have long list of advantages granted to me (a lot of them paid for by my tax dollars) that people living in other parts of the world do not have. I try not to take that list for granted. The federal government is taking in more than enough money to cover our needs but that money is mismanaged and is therefore not working for us the way it should.
Fellow Americans need to do their part to not sabotage the process so we ‘all’ can benefit from living here. By sabotage I mean cheating on paying their taxes. Paying people under the table is a major blow against all of us.
