"Memo the Obama administration;
please don't begin to characterize me as an "enemy" because I am a peaceful, thinking, caring person with some some acute differences of opinion with you on the direction this administration is taking this country.
(Blog editors note: yes, I may become strident in my commentary at times; however, it is born out of pain, anguish, and frustration at the never-ending pile of lies that regularly spew forth from this government and media)
The policies, both domestic, international, and financial, with their attendant taxation, are not putting this country on a path toward recovery; they are doing precisely the opposite.
The costs of these wars without end, for which this administration seems to have such an insatiable appetite, will be our undoing as a nation.
The tax money that has been spent, and the money borrowed from countries like China to pursue these wars, has caused this country to be carry a massive deficit from which it may never recover.
Yes, many of us are legitimately angry. We understand that we are experiencing the new version of "taxation without representation." Oh yes, we have that kabuki-esque spectacle of elections every so often, but this has become totally irrelevant to the direction of American policy.
Those people called congressional representatives no longer represent the will of their constituents; they have become "acquisitions" of the large corporations which fund their campaigns, overtly and covertly. So that's who gets represented and whose needs get met; not the needs of We the People.
We have stopped being a representative government, and have become, instead, a cronyocracy or more accurately a corporate-ocracy.
And that consistent, dull, thumping sound, echoing all across the country is being caused by the founding fathers, turning over in their graves at warp speed." -- Wake the Flock Up
