I wonder how many of you are
completely disgusted with the Legislative and the Executive branches
of the Federal Government, Let's just add in the Judicial Branch for
they are scarce better! The present Democratic Administration has
been in office for two years and it that time has not presented a
Budget for the country. I have heard many reasons suggested for
their intransigence, Fear that the Budget they know they have to
present and pass will cost votes at the next election. Fear that
once the electorate sees the budget, if as unlike many bills Pelosi
and Reid bulldozed at the last minute through Congress, the
Electorate and Congress is allowed to know what the bills contain,
that the people and the Congress will realize what terrible shape
our country is in!
I realize and readily admit that there is a lot that I do not
understand. I am not going to be too quick to say that is my fault.
I think that is the exact same confusion and lack of
understandingthat I am experiencing also is experienced by the vast
majority of the American Public.
I know that, at my age, nothing is likely to happen to our country
in the few year I am going to stay around. I think we, my wife and
I, will be able to continue our present life style for the few years
we have left. Perhaps we will be able to leave a few assets to our
children to assist them in what, almost surely, is going to be
drastic changes in the American Way of Life.
I still have hope that love of country and plain common sense will
prevail. That the tremendous debt we owe will finally sink in the
nations consciousness and all of us, politicians and citizenry, will
act to reduce the Entitlement programs used to gain voters, the
Defense outlays for new weapons programs that are in actuality is
only a way to spend borrowed money to effect the economy.
I recently have seen the value of prayer, I believe that only Divine
Intervention has a chance. You may ask why would God want to spend
more time on us, We have surely screwed up the wonderful country he
has allowed us to know.
I wonder if a Benevolent Dictator might do the trick? Just might, if
we could get them to quit after they fixed the country. Scary
thought, is it not?
