Right now the country's producers / earners are totally unrepresented in Washington. The prevailing view amongst the ruling oligarchic elite is that all money in the US economy belongs to them, and that money which people use for themselves is only due to the benign tolerance of our rulers.
With the appointment of a traitor - John Kerry - to the cabinet office of Secretary of State and the nomination of a mental incompetent - Chuck Hagel - to the office of Secretary of Defense, we see the signs of a country in serious decline.
What has brought us to this unbelievable impasse? A man was sent here to run for President and to destroy the greatness of America, and a political party has thrown in their destiny with such a goal. I understand a recent poll shows that 60% of the American people do not know that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. [educators have done their part to destroy the republic] SCOTUS Justice Scalia has pronounced the Constitution dead... ObamaCare promises to abridge more freedoms that we even knew we possessed.
The fat is in the fire for the producers in this economy; the outcome is balanced on the edge of a knife - and doesn't look very positive for the working class. Marxists have infiltrated many of our traditional institutions and perverted them [the AMA, AARP, NEA - unions, Wall Street... etc.], and we can include the GOP in that list. People like Hagel [and Rove?] are really only in the game to do what they are told and undermine the strength of the people who make this economy operate.
My health is marginal yet I regret that I have lived long enough to see the dissolution of my great country and frustrated that there is little I can do about it. Open borders will bring millions of welfare / food stamp recipients to cripple our weak economy, and many select terrorists to influence our foreign policy with threats.
The answer, IMHO, is to find a group of states that will embrace our original Constitutional foundations and secede from the Union! A combination of Gulf states along with the Carolinas and perhaps Arizona and Alaska could quickly become one of the most powerful countries in the world with a Constitutional Republic and free enterprise.
I can only hope! :-/
Can we include Indiana, Bob? They've been mostly good, aside from supplying guns to Chicago ..................................................................... FRegards, pal
