I am writing this with a fair amount of frustration at the way the American public is treated by our government and elected officials! It seems that nothing the majority cares about is reflected in our government.
Example 1) Please show me a legitimate poll that shows a majority of the public believes in and supports the health-care bill that was passed this weeked by the House. There is none! Yet it was rammed down the throats of the public. I can guarantee you no one that voted for the bill has read it, or has even had a staff member read it! There just was not enough time. Granted it probably will not pass through the Senate and if it does it will be in a different form and will face another vote in reconciliation but still, it should not have passed! I anxiously await 2010!!
Example 2) Our General overseeing the war in Afghanistan has requested 60,000 more troops in order to fight the war in a proper manner. The White House is leaning towards a middle ground of 30,000. People, in a war like this there is no middle ground!! Either bring the troops home, or give the amount of troops the General has requested in order to fight the war to victory. Obama does not know anything about military and should be listening to the military and not to the leftist liberals that paid his way to victory!
3) Obama can take a trip to Europe to try to get his hometown of Chicago the Olympics but he cant go to Germany for the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Berlin wall coming down. I’m sure there are many reasons why he will say he didn’t but most likely he didn’t want to hear a lot of stories about President Ronald Reagan, a complete opposite of Obama, who helped bring the wall down!
I could go on but the fact is our government does not care what we have to say or feel. They only care about attaining and maintaining power.
We must speak out and next year we must begin the process of taking back our government and our country.
