Re: What do you think?
Well, the polls are closed, but I still believe if we changed the rules a bit so that these Senators and Reps can't make a life-long career out of politics, we might get some good people. Our system, as it stands, allows these politicos to stay forever. That leads to corruption. There are good people who would do well in office, but with the likes of Kennedy (I know...dead), Dodd, Feinstein, Boxer, Schumer, Byrd, Murtha, ad nauseum, we'll be stuck on this merry-go-round forever. I still feel that we have the best form of government there is, but it has it's weak points. We should limit lobbyists, PACs, and all the temptations from politics and maybe we could get somewhere. Isn't it odd that when a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. When a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants no one to have them. Same with meat. When a conservative doesn't eat meat, they don't buy it. When the liberal doesn't like it, they form PETA and don't want anyone to eat it. If a conservative doesn't like a news program, he turns the channel. When the liberal don't like it, they want a "Fairness Doctrine." What a screwed up bunch, those liberals. TJ
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have".
Long thread, don't know if anyone will get this far. Our Founding Fathers never intended for everyone to have the vote; that's the problem! I'm NOT talking about race or sex! Zero-liability voters! People that don't pay taxes-don't have anything invested in this country. People on the govt. "dole"- when they hear "new govt. program- it's what do I get? When I hear new govt. program-it's how much do I lose?
Yes we need to take care of the helpless. But hard work needs to be rewarded. Everyone can't have the same amount. Communisim doesn't work.
Can anything be done? I don't know? If 51% of voters are sucking the govt. tit?? I don't want anything GIVEN to me; but am I going bust a gut supporting people that won't work?? I wonder if we are living in the last days for America?
