A Confederacy of Dunces

Send in the clowns

FDR once said "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

The parties take turns sharing power and we think that things will be better. The political parties of a few decades ago, no longer exist. And in the last few decades we have seen the national debt spiral out of control, we have watched millions of jobs leave the US leaving us with massive unemployment. The list of high crimes and misdemeanors perpetrated by officials in high places is endless. And still, we have continued to vote lock step with the our chosen party.

But let us pause a moment and have a reality check. During the time when all of the "suits" in the picture were in office, we have been on a steady downward slide to the position we find ourselves in today. All have gone on record of vowing to stop America's dependence on foreign oil and our consumption has increased by billions of gallons. All have sworn to uphold the Constitution. All have pledged to serve We The People. During their reign we have had American Citizens held hostage for 444 days, entered into 5 wars, decreased our military, increased taxes, suffered numerous terrorist attacks and have watched our Constitution fed into the shredder.

It is my belief that within our government and its collective agencies there are truly venal and evil people, men and women who will stop at nothing to maintain hold on their power and control. They are as surely as evil as any of the despots in the history of the world. They crave the exercise of power over other beings for the purpose of depriving these persons of their natural liberties. To them, our lives mean nothing.

The forces of evil are so close to setting up their totalitarian rule in the United States that they are almost ready to throw off all pretense of legality and openly declare themselves. They can see the brass ring of power and total control almost within their grasp. Like a giant cancer their insidious evil influence has spread throughout in the gut of our great nation. Every branch of the government has been corrupted. It would appear that someone is behind the scene, pulling the strings.

We have just four months until, what might be the most important election in our life time. It is time we forget all party ties and focus on the individual qualifications of the candidate. What have they done? How have they voted in the past? Do they truly support Constitutionally Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility and Free Markets? Until we can focus on the real issues and stop trying to vote like grandpa, we are just going to be in for more of the same.

But that's just my opinion.......
