The new Star Wars movie and merchandise is making billions and is a leading news story. Groupies know every detail of the Star Wars history. I wish the public was half as informed about our government and how our republic functions.
Although it will never happen, I think people should have to take some type of government competency test to register to vote. If you have ever watched Water’s World interviews, it is obvious that we have too many political morons voting. How do we educate these people? The media certainly is no help. They broadcast anything that is controversial to hype ratings. The lame stream media tries not to let the facts get in the way of a good story and divide the country.
Why do we let big government, big money, and the political elite run our country? I congratulate Congress for actually passing a budget for a change. This is the responsibility and obligation that Congress has ignored in our recent history.
The problem is that the budget was 1.1 TRILION dollars and gave President Obama everything he wanted. Money for the military and veterans was cut, there is no increase for Social Security recipients, AND welfare was increased. This is wrong.
Republicans have done well in the last two elections because of promises to cut the size of government and government spending. This new budget certainly does not reflect what the majority of the country wants.
Too many government decisions are made for political reasons. One example is the disaster called Obama Care. The implementation of the tax on Cadillac health care plans has been delayed again. Why? If this tax were implemented, before the next election, it would be a death stroke to the Democratic Party.
Most polls show that less than 10% of Americans think the government is doing a good job. I can see why Republican Presidential candidates that are considered outsiders are doing so well. The public may not be well informed, but most are smart enough to realize we have a problem.
All political candidates give lip service to solving the problems created by big government, but will not act on these problems. I can certainly understand both parties concern with some of the outsider candidates. If elected, some of these candidates will act, and it could mean the end of big government and the political elite as we know it today, and it would force major changes in both political parties.
For the sake of the United States of America and future generations, I pray we cut big government and get back to the Constitution, but I am very concerned that we will continue on the path to socialism.
