What We Don't Want in Washington

The upcoming elections this November will be the most important election held in our lifetime. Four years will have passed since the Democrats regained control of Congress and two years will have passed since the Annointing of The One to the Presidency.

So, it's about time we asked ourselves a national question: are we better off now than we were four, or even two, years ago?

While this question has been asked before, most notably by Ronaldus Maximus, at no time has the answer been more clear. The answer is a resounding "No!".

Pick an issue, any issue. Our situation is bad and getting worse with each passing day. This administration is toxic to traditional American values, as if someone else from a different country were running things and had never heard of individual freedom. Each new piece of legislation that comes from Capitol Hill not only fails to adequately address issues, but actually reduces the freedom of every American and compounds the problem.

Our economy is suffering. The solutions are as simple as they are straightforward. Lower taxes and reduced governmental red tape. But has anyone in this Democrat controlled Congress offered to do the things that must be done to get our economy back on solid ground? Look at the latest unemployment figures for your answer. It's like Washington is collectively blind, deaf and dumb to the ills of the nation and the suffering of its' people.

Why did we get a massively expensive and unnecessary new program like ObamaCare in place of genuine action to salvage the economy and despite the protestations of the majority of Americans? Why do those in power continue to act in ways that defy common sense? Perhaps this video will help explain our current situation.

This is a prime example of the arrogance of our elite ruling class. This Congressman, Bob Etheridge (D-NC) should be sitting in a jail cell for assault and battery. He should be censured, then impeached. He has acted in a manner that has brought shame to the office he holds. He has insulted each and every American whom he claims to serve.

The sad part is that his views concerning those of us who dare question the motives and actions of those we send to Washington are shared by most of the progressives who have managed to lie their way into office. They do not represent the people of their districts, do not hold American values close to their hearts and certainly do not value the Constitution. If they did, you would never see this kind of arrogance and disrespect shown to anyone.

If this idiot is reelected, then the people of North Carolina should be ashamed of themselves, for they have sent the exact wrong type of person to Washington.

How can we begin to expect a solution to our national problems from an arrogant bastard like that?
