I thought the article linked below is particularly interesting in light of my post on April 9th about Republicans starting to criticize Fox News.  It just further validates that Americans are reaching a point where they are fed up with the elitist attitudes of many politicians in both the Republican and Democratic parties.    However, trust me when I say they still don’t get it.  They believe that their citizens are apathetic and that it will be business as usual if they can prop up the economy just enough to appease the masses until after the next election.  Of course this economic recovery is largely based on money the Government is borrowing and pumping into the system.  This borrowing will continue just long enough to enact all the desired “progressive” policies followed by a pronouncement that capitalism doesn’t work.  Taxes will go through the roof and the mass of people out of work and struggling to survive will lead even the most hardened of former middle class capitalist screaming that socialism is the only answer.  We can’t drink the kool aid this time.  The only way to get Government back in the control of the people is to elect those running outside of the current two party system.  I know, trust me I know, some reading this might think I’m overreacting but think for a moment,… if you ran your household, your finances, the way the Government does what would eventually happen?  And when you finally went bankrupt would your family walk away rich while your neighbors are left with your debt?  We are the neighbors and the family next door are the politicians walking away with our money, liberty, dignity and ultimately our desire and ability to achieve wealth for ourselves and our heirs.  There are three ways to enslave a man.

Here’s The Story:  Fox News Bash – Of course Republicans are starting to complain, they are beginning to realize that Americans aren’t just unhappy with Democrats. We are unhappy with both parties, their arrogance, spending, and backroom deals.  They are all in bed together and they laugh at our naivete while sipping martinis at evening galas. All the while they steal our money and increase wealth for their own family and friends.  They create just enough fake Democrat vs. Republican controversy to keep the public arguing while they enrich themselves and bankrupt the nation.  Both parties join in the same hypocrisy, corruption and depredation.  They espouse that they are different but they are joined at the hip.  The anger of many Americans is simply an acknowledgment among us and notice that we are on to you.  Our Governments role is to protect our freedoms, to provide defense foreign and domestic, to maintain infrastructure and to protect as well as abide by the constitution.  Forced charity, redistribution of wealth and socialism if desired can already be found in plenty of under performing second rate nations.  If that’s the type of Government you want there are plenty to choose from.  Indeed our Constitution is directly opposed to the above concepts and was purposely worded to avoid the ability for Government to grow so large and so corrupt that they could take away the right and incentive to pursue personal achievement and wealth.  They came to know that innovation, productivity and personal happiness are largely tied to ones ability to reap the rewards of their efforts and as long as they did so without infringing on the rights of others the Nation would continue to flourish unlike any other throughout history.  Survival of the fittest with rules.  Brilliant, Beautiful.
