Lately, when I wake up in the morning I actually dread reading the news. If you have witnessed a car wreck, you understand. You can see it happening, there is nothing you can do to prevent it and mostly, you just can’t believe what is unfolding in front of your eyes.
Our latest collective national car wreck is the bailout mania of Pelosi, Reid and all the Liberal special interest flakes. And it is truly getting out of hand. These people are a symptom of a much greater problem. The government is out of control and the spending spree they are on is going to bring us all down.
I have never seen a group of people so bent on throwing good money after bad solutions. The danger they pose to our economy is of a proportion that cannot be measured. The house of cards they are constructing cannot stand for long because it is built upon the poor judgment of people who seem barely qualified to screw in a light bulb, yet seem to think they are expert in all things. I cringe when I hear Pelosi and Reid speak because neither seems capable of putting together a coherent sentence let alone a sensible solution to a problem and the insult to my intelligence is just too much.
The auto bailout is the latest car wreck that makes a strong case for term limits. They are going to effectively trash an already ailing industry for the benefit of their union pals. They weren’t fooling anyone with their show trials to bash the auto executives before giving them billions of dollars. This bailout dog and pony show proves that professional politicians are the real disaster to governance in our country. These politicians are a wholly owned subsidiary of special interest groups who exchange money and perks for legislation and, now, bailout bucks.
Therefore, no one should be surprised that Blago is accused of trying to sell a senate seat. That’s just business as usual and not just in Chicago. The best part about it is that the Democrats don’t want him to resign because of any wrong doing. They want him to resign so they can be sure to avoid a special election and get a Democrat seated in the Senate. Yep, the standards have sunk that low. After all they didn’t ask Jefferson to resign, despite the cold cash in the freezer, because there was nothing for the Democrats to gain from it. This insanity has to end.
Two terms in the US Senate and six terms in the House are more than enough time in Washington, DC because the longer they stay, the more damage they do to our country. Pelosi and Reid should be the poster children for term limits. They have been feeding at the public trough way too long. How many more car wrecks can we withstand?
