The trouble with our politics is that it is difficult to tell what is really going on. The lame stream liberal press makes it even more difficult for We the People to know what is going on. Keeping We the People apprised of reality is the primary reason why it is so important for our form of government to have a FREE and HONEST press.
Most people in this country just doin’t realize just how close we are to losing the form of government we have been blessed with for so many years. Many politicians get elected and go to Washington with sincere idealistic ideas and then they begin to get advice from the old guard and their good intentions disappear.
The current freshman class in Washington is doing pretty good so far, but they have waivered some since taking their vows. This is why it is so important for We the People to become responsible and keep a jaundiced eye on our selected representatives.
An example of an elected representative who needs careful watching is John McCain. Watching and listening to him is quite a spectator sport, one day he may sound like a conservative and then just when you think he has seen the light he follows up with a liberal presentation. Of course it is hard to imagine any conservative spending so much time with Ted Kennedy and agreeing with him on so much. Kennedy was not that smart but he sure outfoxed McCain at every turn.
We must keep our eyes and ears on all of them and those opposed to getting America back to being the exceptional country that we once were. There is very little room for compromise and for our representatives to cut the run amuck spending that this administration and other liberals are conducting.
Stay alert, watch and listen to all of our elected representatives and help your friends and neighbors understand those who need to be replaced.
We can get a government back in Washington in 2012 that will make us proud and one that will get our country back where it belongs, as the leader of the world, if we will stay alert.
