To The Daily Sun,
What has happened to the American spirit? We have, for the past 40-plus years, elected what are known as representatives to Congress who are sworn to uphold the Constitution and to to protect America from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. (Yes, I am laughing and disgusted at the same time.) They are also supposed to represent their constituents in their state. (Yes, I'm laughing again.)
When was the last time your representative actually represented you? The sad truth is they (both federal and state representatives) don't care about what you want. What they care about is power and party. The only time they want to hear from you is when they need your vote to get re-elected.
You are only an end to their means. Both Republicans and Democrats put party above the American people, even above our country. If they want to stay in Congress and get re-elected year after year (and they all do) you have to tow the party lines.
Do you really think politicians want what's best for you or America? Wake up people, they want what is best for them and how to keep their job. The spend millions of dollars running for an office that pays about $ 150,000-plus per year. Where do they get that kind of money to run for office? Not from the people they say they want to represent. They get it from big-money people who want to have a member of Congress in their pocket who will vote the way they want or they can kiss their re-election good-bye. Have you ever heard of a member of Congress leaving Congress with less money than when the were elected? Most of them come out multimillionaires.
Is this the government our Founding Fathers envisioned for us? It's time to take America back. We need to throw everyone who is in office out, and then in two years whoever is in office throw them out again, and keep doing it until they realize they work for us.
Congress was never meant to be a career. It's time we go back to the future and elect men and women who believe in the Constitution and what it stands for. We need to restore family values and stop the government from interfering in our lives. That's not their job. Their job is to uphold and defend the Constitution.
Wake up America while there is still time.
