This Is Why People Hate Gov't & Pols

Their hypocrisy and hubris know no bounds.

They design a horrible healthcare system without even reading it, but exempt themselves from it.

Now, they want to take away your 2nd amendment rights, but not their own.

Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

“Mrs. Feinstein’s measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel,” the Washington Times reports.
See, it is your right to self defense that is a problem, not theirs.

The last person I would trust with a gun is the person who wants to take mine away.

Democracy only works with the consent of the governed.

If the politicians refuse to acknowledge this, the government is no longer democratic and becomes tyranny.

Should they try to register everyone’s weapons so be it. But, millions upon millions would just deny their ownership.

Do the politicians really want to fine them? Threaten? Imprison?

The same thing goes for the IRS. We pay our taxes because we support the government. If tens of millions refused to pay, file or participate, how long would this government last?

Yes, there are elections and yes, the democrats won. This time. However, when the individual citizen begins to say “enough” and there are tens of millions who agree on the left and the right, the politicians had better listen.

Once again, people pass laws against that which they fear. Every politician fears the people and want to disarm them in order to avoid the inevitable backlash. The people see what the politicians are interested in at public expense: $1,000 dinners, $4,000 bottles of wine plus the finest cocaine,$5,000 per night twelve year old girls and for variety 10 year old boys and sometimes both together,free clothing, the finest medical care without cost, free tickets to every top event, free travel, free housing and utilities, travel and free room and board at lush surroundings from which the people are barred and lastly any other vice known to man, all free.

The election was called while OH FL PA and VI were still in contest. Karl Rove saw this and said so on FOX, which is why he was vilified for it. A blind man who followed the election could have seen it. Then you have all the fraud that took place also.

I will never be persuaded that Barack Obama won the presidency.

As a citizen and observer from the state of Ohio, my close observation was this:

For the first time in history, voters in this state were given 30 days to cast their ballot, along with mailing in the absentee votes, one go simply go down to the county board of elections and vote. There were far, far too many snippets in the news about throngs of voters being bussed into voting places at various places around the state, one in particular were Somali nationals ... Ohio isn't known for it's Somali population.

Many people took advantage of the easily mailed in vote... I spoke with a person who works at the local board of elections, they said the tally from the mail-in and early voters wouldn't be complete for days after election day. So how the hell did they know on election night who the pre-cast ballots went to?

There were also numerous - significantly numerous - complaints about voting machines not operating properly on the day of the election. Most notably, votes cast for Romney were recorded as votes for O. No one media source put this all together, but as I read various news reports from around the state, there seemed little doubt that something had gone awry, on a very large scale.

IMHO there has not been a legitimate presidential election of a man "from the people" since James A. Garfield. And we all know what happened to him.

The first thing to be done is to repeal this "winner take all" electoral votes for each state. They should be appropriated by the votes cast for that congressional district.

An educated electorate would help, but that seems to be a long way off.
