Who's Can is Getting Kicked?
So the news is that the Senate will pass a “clean” Continuing Resolution and a raise in the debt ceiling (borrow more money we don't have to fund programs we don't need) The House will cave in to the demands of the dictator in the White House and he will stop hurting us. Oh and have to do this again in January 2014 because they have another sequester mandate that will kick in. In other words, another debt crisis and political wrangling for our entertainment purposes only. The media pundits refer to this as kicking the can down the road. Whose can?
Once again the party politics in Washington proves that We the People need to really step up and clean houses: The House of Representatives (who don't represent us,) The House of the Senate, and the White House. Our government is infested with criminals and we need to clean up the mess they left behind.
In order to make this happen we need to reform the nomination and election procedures to assure honesty and integrity. In Protecting the Vote is detailed information on how to assure that the balloting is kept transparent and accurate. Speed is secondary to the accuracy of the People's choices.
The method of getting nominated and on the ballot varies by state and by county so you will have do the research if you really want to make changes in who represents you in your state and in DC.
Seems to me that the can getting kicked is the American People's and I guess it doesn't hurt enough yet before you'll get off your can and take action. Or does the welfare state outnumber patriotic Americans?
