The NDAA was passed into law. Meaning that the Government can sweep you up and lock you away indefinitely without due process. It’s pretty much the suspension of our constitutional rights. Innocent until proven guilty? Gone. Speedy trial? Gone. Right to face your accuser? Gone. The Constitution? It’s a foot note in the history books now.
But who cares? Some guy on a TV Reality Show got booted!
Republicans locked armed with Democrats and voted to cut the benefits and healthcare for Vets… But didn’t make any cuts on themselves… and of course, by the standing law they put into place, they will continue to get an increase ever year.
But who cares? Some guy on a TV Reality Show got booted?
And if they are not talking about Phil Robertson (Yeah, I know his name because I’ve met him. I’ve not watched his show) they are talking about Miley Circus shaking her boney ass.
What about Obama making up rules and changing laws at his own whim? The NSA is recording fucking everything… It’s all out of control.
I’m sorry but I thought I remember growing up and learning that we had 3 branches of the Government and that it was the Legislative Branch’s job to make the laws, and the Executive Branch’s job to enforce them, and then the Judicial Branch to make sure it was all legit.
All of this is a sad puppet show now. It’s political theatre… and the show is a Satire.
So maybe there is no difference anymore with talking about one Performer, Phil, or the other, Obama.
The Government makes me feel so greatly disappointed that guys like West and Mattis haven’t take shit over. There’s a Ticket I could vote for. Take it over, knock it down and hit the big red RESET button and put the laws back to how they were originally. Because it was pretty damn good then.
All men, created equal… That says it all right there.
There are only three people in DC that are worth a damn.
Ted Cruze, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul.
Everyone else is completely useless and dangerous. And what’s worse is that the GOP is flat out against them.
Working with the Democrats means giving in to them. Look at our Nation. How’s that worked out for us?
The argument is that if we dont, we lose elections. Whats the point if we give in regardless? You know why we lose elections? Two reasons.
One: Open Caucuses. We let anyone come in and vote for the Republican candidate… this lets the Donks pick our Candidate. Thats how we got McCain as our Candidate which is why we have Obama now.
Two: Voter ID. You gotta have an ID for everything these days; except to Vote. Some states require it. Others don’t. The Donks always sweep No ID states. This is the precursor to Voter Fraud. If an ID was required, that would be a huge step to having an actual valid election.
If we fix these two issues, the political landscape would be set straight in short order. We wont even get into Term Limits and Congressional Salary and Pensions. Perhaps a Congressman should only recieve a stipend for living expenses and sit in office for no more than 4 years and have no pension. Live like Monks instead of Rock Stars. Learn what the hell Public Servant means.
Perhaps if serving in DC was a sacrifice than people like McCain and Pelosi and Reed wouldn’t be there… but more people like Mike Lee would hold Offices. People who believe in our Nation and would not use it for graft. And any accusation of wrong doing that’s proven true, be subject to instant Recall. If this was how it was in DC, our Nation would truly be the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
Let’s have Congress set a budget, and any spending over that budget gets paid for by Congress out of their own pockets via Wage Garnishments. Just a thought.
I bet they could find ways to keep the spending in check then.
