When you don’t fix a leak in the roof right away, you’re in for some pain and suffering. Eventually, the roof begins to rot, and pretty soon there aren’t enough pots in the house to keep the leaks from rotting the floor. When your foot finally goes through the floor, you wake up to fact that if you want to keep your house, you are going to have to endure some pain and suffering to get it fixed. Of course, anything worth having, usually requires pain and suffering to acquire it, and hence, anything worth keeping requires constant vigilance and constant maintenance intercessions..
The United States has had leaks in it’s roof for many years now. Leaks such as…So called “Representatives “ that lie to the people they are suppose to represent. So called “Representatives” that take bribes from lobbyists so those lobbyist s can write their own self serving legislation,. So called “Representives “ who only represent themselves and their own personal interests. So called “Representatives that have exempted themselves from the law and the rules. These are the “people” who have shaped our government over the years into what it is today, a government that does not work or function without the utilization of corruption.
Believe it or not Jimmy Carter came to office to put end the corruption. Yes, Jimmy Carter, regardless of his faults and shortcomings, was an honest man with good intentions. But honesty doesn‘t work in the government these people have shaped. Carter could not keep the government going without the corruption, and hence it quickly turned into a shambles as a result of the “corrupt government“ teaching him that lesson. You see, we now need the crooks and thieves to keep the government they have created functioning.,
To begin fixing the problem, the first thing we need to do is to put a tarp on the roof to keep them from doing further damage. It’s time to demand a moratorium on the creation of any new legislation. But the government will shut down , you say? Then Social security checks won’t be mailed out, government employees won’t receive their pay checks, The stock market will crash, The world will come to an end. Well let’s see…Congress is in recess right now… anybody’s world coming to an end? Anybody tripping over bodies in the streets? So there won’t be any problems with that? Of course there will be. You don’t expect crooked employees not to sabotage everything they can to hold on to their power and jobs, do you. That’s one of the prices we are going to have to pay for letting the roof leak for so long.
Next we have to start sending our friends and neighbors to Washington, People we can trust, instead of professional career politicians, selected and owned by the major political parties. People who’s first loyalties are to our country and our constitution and their neighbors. We have to stop letting the professional government media and the majority political parties from selecting our candidate for us. They will be the first to tell you, that inexperienced people can not run the government because you have know which crooks can get which job done. You can‘t have term limits, because the longer you stay in office, the more crooks you know, and the more things you can get done to fool the people into thinking you have their best interests at heart.
Finally we need to hold the people we send to represent us accountable for their actions. “We are asking you to spend a little time working for the best interests our country, we are not giving you a license to steal.” . Do we have fears to face? Yes we do. Will it be easy? No it won’t. Will it be worth the price we are going to have to pay? Only for those who value their freedom.
I have had the God blessed privilege of living in the best country in the world for the last sixty some odds years, and I’ve paid my dues. No government can take away the freedom that I have already enjoyed for these many years, So quite frankly, I am not worried about me and my future. I just think it’s a shame that our young people and grandchildren are not going to have the opportunity to enjoy that very same freedom I have enjoyed . .
