Politics As Usual Must End NOW

"For a while last week, the Democrats were doing better at framing the issues. The poll numbers showed that Bush's approval rating was down, that around 60% of the voters had turned against the Iraq War, that support for Bush on his handling of 911 and terrorism was lower, but still pretty high."
---George Lakoff [Source].

While we are hardly George Bush supporters, we find the efforts of the leftist Democrats to "frame the issues" by discrediting the President to be distasteful, dishonest and completely contrary to the principles upon which America was formed. To attack the man and try to destroy his effectiveness to lead this great nation is not, in our minds, the way to "frame issues". Nor is it in any way, shape or form the actions of someone who we would trust to lead a pack of neo-hippies in singing "Kumbya" much less lead the most powerful nation in the world.

The citizens of this country deserve political leaders who place the welfare of Our Nation above the petty concerns of political parties. We deserve leaders who make decisions based upon what is right or wrong and not such that they further the goals of their political party.

What we have now is a gang of clowns who spend their time, and our tax dollars, manipulating situations to further their personal and party agendas regardless of whether it hurts the nation or not. Be they a Republican, Democrat, conservative, neo-con, moderate or liberal (aka progressive), with few exceptions, they are nothing more than carpetbaggers in expensive suits living off of the sweat and labor of the taxpayers. For the Congressional Clowns, telling the truth means telling only partial lies and twisting the language to meet their purposes.

Instead of offering viable alternatives, the Congressional Clowns attack and attempt to destroy their opponent's ability to govern and lead. This is what passes for political debate, especially amongst the leftists in Congress (Kennedy, Kerry, Reid, Byrd, et. al.). Sitting in a world isolated from real people and real concerns, these clowns and puppets act as if this country is their own personal play thing to do with as they please. Rather than taking time away from soliciting donations like any whore of the street corner, they pass massive packages of law without even bothering to read the bill before voting as was the case with the Patriot Act. They insert themselves into matters that are none of their business simply to garner some free publicity as in the Terry Schiavo. They accuse each other of any number of improper
acts while suck up all of the payola they run across (see the Congressional travel records).

Twice before in our history, we went to war to toss off imperialistic rulers. The first time was to get rid of King George, the second was the attempt by the southern states to recapture states rights leading to the Civil War. It is time for the third revolution. It is time that we band together and use our voices and votes to toss the Congressional Clowns out of office, to demand term limits for all government officials and to install leaders who will respond first and foremost to the needs of the nation and not to the needs of a political party.

As we celebrate the birth of this nation July 4th, please take a moment to think about things. Think about the blood that was shed to build this nation. Think about the brave men and women who forged America out of a wilderness. Think about what you want for your children. Most of all think about what you can do to reclaim America for her people.
