Oust spineless politicians

  • Follow Letters

For more than three years, I’ve witnessed the systematic destruction of our once-great country.

I’m just one small voice out of literally millions of my predecessors and successors who have collectively put ourselves in harm’s way defending our freedoms, yet no one in our cowardly Congress is willing to do anything to stop the madness. We elected them to do their jobs, rather that spending their time working on getting themselves re-elected!

Probably no one is more guilty of this inaction that House Speaker John Boehner and our soon-to-be-former Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia. Purportedly the most conservative member of Congress, based on his voting record, Rep. Broun is supposedly famous for carrying a copy of the Constitution in his back pocket at all times – yet has done nothing to honor his own oath of office to “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

It is high time for Rep. Broun and all of his fellow spineless wimps and gutless wonders who call themselves Republicans to get off of their collective dead bottoms and take the necessary steps to begin the removal of our own “Manchurian candidate” impostor and the rest of his minions who are trashing the Constitution on a daily basis and refusing to honor their oaths of office in the process. Failure to do so will result in Congress ultimately having no country left to administer!

"Failure....no country left to administer!"

The U.S. Constitution places legislative and oversight authority in the U.S. Congress.

Our constitution places administrative authority in the POTUS and the executive branch.

Publicly funded elections

If we want politicians accountable to the voters (and not their donors, rather corporate or flesh-and-blood), we have to be willing to pay for it.

Set a minimum signature threshold and then give each candidate $X to campaign on. No more, no less.

It would require a constitutional amendment but it would give us true representation.

"will result in Congress

"will result in Congress ultimately having no country left to administer"

Derek.....we are already there. This country is spending more than it takes in and that is getting exponentially worse on a daily basis. We are the walking dead and just don't realize it yet. The SCOTUS decision yesterday and the looming tax increases from the expiring tax cuts have put the final nails in our coffin but we are just in too much of a coma to realize the grave is dug. Socialism and the government dependent leeches have sucked us dry. When leeches suck a host dry the host dies and the leeches drop off and find another host. Our leeches have got no where to go. I hope I am around long enough to watch them squirm.

Makes You Wonder

how we ever got through things like The Depression, The War of Northern Aggression or any of the litany of things that the US has gotten through.

Dichotomy, I've got some veggies canned and meat preserved in my secret stash. And me and my boys have plenty of stuff with which to fight. So if the stuff goes down, holler at me and maybe we can do some tradin'.

As bad as I want to watch the leaches squirm, I also can't wait to see the soft bellied, sissified beta male suburb dwlling, cable news watching pompom wavers and their prep school attending sons and daughters attempt to defend themselves from the REAL crazy fringe.

Imagine if the currency were no good and the only thing you had to trade for food was a weedeater and a flat panel TV and the person you had to trade to was a big ol street thug crack dealer with an arsenal of weapons and soldiers jacked up on gangsta rap and bath salts.

(Disclaimer: Mr Duvall will get onto me for this post. But...I simply could not resist the urge to try to usurp dichotomy as the most hyperbolic poster of the day.)

Obama

Obama is the one that has been campaigning from the time he took office and forward to now. If he wasn't campaigning, he was playing golf. Now does this sound like a president that really cares about us the people or himself? Just asking.

Memo:

Perhaps some of you did not get the memo. This country is currently being auctioned off to the highest bidder. If current bids hold, it will soon be renamed KSA: Koch States of America!!
