Tag: Term Limits

Want to Drain the Swamp? Then get rid of Career Politicians!

Term Limits crosses political parties and affiliations….it is simply this: Limiting the time our elected Congress men and women can serve in office. Basically putting a time limit on how long they are able to spend in Washington. If you had unlimited time to get something done, would you be in a hurry to get it done?

“But our Congressman is doing great, he votes just the way I want him to.” That’s wonderful, BUT there are other “great” men and women that are able to serve and bring fresh ideas and concepts to the table. If we don’t put NEW people in DC, than we will continue to get the same results. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is insanity! The whole goal becomes voting party line and getting  reelected, regardless of what’s right for the country! These guys become owned by big money!   “If I just vote the “party line” than my district or state will re-elect me and I get to stay here with all the perks!” This was NEVER meant to be!

Congress currently has a 28% approval rating and yet Incumbents (current congressman/women) have an over 93% chance of being re-elected. Geeeez….if an individual got a 28 out of 100 at a job in the private sector, they would be FIRED! If you take a test and get a 28% that’s a failing grade! If you fail….you don’t get to move on…because….ummm you failed!  

 “Well…getting someone new in there, with No knowledge of how Congress works, doesn’t seem like a smart move to me.” Really…..really….so you are pleased with the state of our country? How is that 19 Trillion in debt working for you? We are literally re-electing people to fix the problems they created! It is the current incumbent filled Congress that has gotten us to where we are today!

“The best way to ensure we are truly a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, is to replace the career politicians in Washingtonwith citizen legislators who care more about the next generation than their next election. – Senator Coburn

 “This nation can no longer afford these entrenched men and women who enjoy lives of luxury wholly insulated from the consequences of their major policy failures.” –Former Senator Jim Demint

 Oh forget it…it’s an uphill battle…Congress will never vote themselves out of a job…..you might be right. So what do YOU do?

 Find out if YOUR Senator or Congressperson supports Term Limits and will Term Limit themselves!? If so…great….vote for them…if NOT…VOTE THEM OUT! It will start with WE the People!

 It may start small….. a simple grassroots movement…but this is how you DRAIN THE SWAMP! For our Country’s future, for your kids future- we need men and women that are in Washington to serve and then go home…not stay….holding office is a JOB, it was never meant to be a CAREER! Get the Job done, then get out! 

Below is a video I posted on Facebook yesterday, “Meet today’s Career Politician” 🙂

 

Do your part and speak up! Demand Term Limits!

Clean House….Drain the Swamp!

For years I have listened to Democrats, Independents, and Republicans vent about the corruption of our Government. With Congress having a 13% approval rating yet once a politician is elected, they have an over 90% chance of being re-elected. Unseating an incumbent is damn near impossible. These people get to D.C. and they stay in D.C. They lose touch with us. They lose touch with those who sent them to fight FOR change. They instead focus on re-election and pacifying their big donors. The cycle of insanity continues, and the frustration is REAL.

Most people hate Politicians. The concept of being a “Public Servant” has evolved into pimping ones self out to the biggest donor….. a pathetic pandering to those who will write the BIG checks. Promises of “change and hope” only end up being the same old same old. Witnessing this graveling is embarrassing and sad…..just sad. These politicians are politicians. How can we expect change from them, when they know nothing outside of being politicians?

We have got 93 million Americans who are out of work. Our debt has doubled in the last eight years, now standing at 19 trillion dollars. We have almost 50 million Americans living in poverty. Our taxes have increased and our ranking Globally in education has declined. We are a nation divided, a nation in need of REAL CHANGE. But how can we expect change if we keep doing the same thing over and over? Einstein defines this as insanity….are we insane? Perhaps.

If your child is sick, would you hire a politician to treat them? What knowledge does this politician bring on the treatment of a sick child? Politicians who have been in D.C. for term after term are not experts on change, but they are simply experts at being re-elected. If they were really knowledgeable at fixing the problems we face, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in. If they were change makers, we’d see CHANGE. Yes, they can give a rousing speech, shake hands, kiss babies, and cause you to write a check to their campaign, but besides that, they lack the know how in problem solving. I wouldn’t take my child to a politician for treatment. I’d take them to a Doctor.

It’s time to solve the problems we face by electing problem solvers. It’s time to stop hiring people who have no knowledge of the private sector. It’s time to elect individuals that know how to create jobs, because they have actually created jobs. It’s time to appoint members in the Presidential Cabinet that KNOW HOW to head the Department they are placed in because they have lead in that capacity in the private sector. It’s time to enact Term Limits on Congress, and elect Congressmen and Women who are SOLUTION PROVIDERS. In order to properly treat our country, we have to hire people that know how to implicate the treatment needed, because they have done it in the private sector! These people exist, they just have to be given the shot…..what is there to lose?

With the recent re-opening of the FBI’s investigation of Hillary and her email server, we have to realize that if Hillary were elected, we the AMERICAN people would be watching a case unfold over the next year and a half. The issuing of an indictment and quite possibly a trial of Hillary Clinton. If this happens, America is put on hold, and other countries continue to fill the leadership role that America once played. We sit in limbo watching as Hillary tries to defend herself against her own trail of mass corruption and deceit.

A clear choice is in front us– More of the same OR a Change agent.

You don’t like Trump? Who said the President had to be your best pal?

We desperately NEED CHANGE and we NEED to begin healing our broken country. In order to see change, you have to make changes. You have the ability to stop the insanity of electing the same people over and over again and hoping for a different result. You can stop this cycle. Your vote is your voice, let your voice be heard loud and clear by shaking up a political establishment entrenched in back door deals and corruption….

DRAIN THE SWAMP.

 

Trump, Taxes and Career Politicians-

Saturday late evening, the New York Times illegally obtained Trump’s tax records from 21 years ago and published them, exposing that Donald Trump declared a $916 million loss in 1995 that might have resulted in him not paying taxes in some subsequent years.

First, NOTHING illegal was done here. Donald didn’t take a hammer to his phone & other devices that were subpoenaed evidence, he didn’t lie under oath, he didn’t lie to the American people and blame the death of Americans on a video, he didn’t illegally use a private server while serving the American People- that compromised American lives, He didn’t delete 30,000 emails with bleachbit, he doesn’t have a top aide that worked for a Radical Islamic Journal working for him, he hasn’t had multiple people he has worked with or associated with mysteriously die, he’s not married to an alleged rapist…….I could keep going, but I think you get the picture.

In short, there is really nothing to see here in regards to this illegally obtained info that the New York Times (owned by Globalists)  wanted us to see. Our current tax code allows every American to count losses against tax liabilities, which is what Trump has done. In fact, it’s a smart move. Every individual and business tries to pay as little as possible in taxes–that is if you are wise about it. Every charitable gift and business expense is found during tax time so that less is taken by the government! If you are angry that the rich and big corporations are allotted more tax deductions than you are,  you can’t get mad at them, blame the elected officials who created the current system!

Trump’s response:

He’s right!
We have got people running our country that have NO CLUE what they are doing! Our lawmakers are comprised mostly of Career Politicians. These guys are trying to solve problems they have no business solving. If you were having problems with your car would you take it to a barber shop to have it looked at and fixed? No, you’d take it to a mechanic! We have got people that are professional politicians running the show. Their only accomplishment is holding office and getting re-elected to hold office! They don’t know how to fix the problems they create, yet we keep electing these do nothings!
Under our current progressive career politician President, our National Debt has doubled. Does that look like these guys know how to handle our finances? If in Eight years YOU doubled your debt, would that be responsible?
Enough!
I say let’s put an Executive in the Executive Branch! Business minded individuals DEMAND results! Electing career politicians to fix the problems they created is the definition of INSANITY!
We have the opportunity to hire someone who is not owned by corporations and special interests, someone who is opposed to the Globalist agenda and will provide solutions to the “cluster f” created in DC.
37 days to go…..let’s stop the insanity!

The guys that caved to Obama’s #Amnesty

For a brief……very brief moment, I was proud of our congress today as they welcomed a true leader Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu. But, shortly after we heard Netanyahu give a very moving and historic speech, I was reminded of why we sooooo need term limits!

So there’s been this back and forth over Obama’s Amnesty. You know the unconstitutional executive order he gave a few months ago without going through congress, granting amnesty to millions of illegals. Who cares about securing the borders….let’s just let em all in-terrorist and all, who cares about those going about it the lawful way…..whooooohooooo! Ya…that order….remember it? Well no legislation had been passed on that order….that is until today. Our House of Representatives caved, because there was the “threat” of shutting down the Department of Homeland Security unless the bill was passed. (Which is a whole other story in itself….I mean it’s like we have mobsters running things over there! I threaten you with this, unless you do this…..ughhh….I mean come on!)

The House passed the “clean” DHS Bill so the Department of Homeland Security wouldn’t shut down…..and now Obama’s Amnesty is going to be signed by the King himself.

I honestly want to know what happened to our Constitutional Republic?? Anybody seen it…..anybody??

Here is a list of the guys in suits that passed this insane bill….those who caved under pressure to his Majesty, If your rep isn’t on here…..be proud, because they just might have a pair!

  Voted for Amnesty

My random thoughts…because yes I have had a glass or two of wine ;)

A lot of my Facebook, Twitter and blog participants have noticed an evolution in me. Yes, I’ll freely admit a change has happened in my thoughts, views and opinions. At my core I am Conservative through and through, I always will be-because in this system of values I find hope, resolution and true progress. My evolving has only led me to question whether a Conservative at this point has a party to align itself with? The Republican Party, at its base is Conservative but it has been overrun in may areas by Big Corps and Pacs, to me-it seems like everybody has somebody else’s hands in their pockets. I mean we knew the Dems, were bought out a long time ago with a socialistic agenda at the helm…..but I am wondering at this point is everyone bought??? Is everyone in it for themselves, and worse -have they forgotten the people they represent?

 Is it all about climbing the ladder?

City Council, School board, County Commissioner ….. then on to State House or Senate, if successful there, hell run for US Congress!

 Why does this bother me? Why do I cringe at the word “career” politician? They seem nice, right? I mean they seem like they are in it for good intentions….

 I guess what rubs me wrong is I am seeing so much “hype” over an individual. Hope placed on a very fallible human.

 I saw it in Hollywood. I saw it first hand working for a very well known celebrity. The glorification of “self.” I will tell you, this brings one to ruin. There is no freedom in being praised, it is actually a prison. My question is how can we expect our politicians to be any different? The glitz, the glamour, the praise- it’s become an unhealthy and polluted environment. It’s Hollywood but it’s cloaked in “news,” bills and …..cspan….and looooooong winded interviews. What was once FOR the people has become FOR the elected.  “Whatever keeps me in office”-is now the agenda. Campaigns have turned into month long previews and trailers of the next big hit!

  I was recently asked why I do what I do? Do I have an agenda? My answer-No. I blog because my heart is in this. My emotions, my thoughts, my tears, my children’s future. There is no hidden plan here….I do this for my simple love of this country.  That’s right, there are those that still believe in America and everything she was founded upon. “Would I ever run for an office,” I have been asked?  Ha! Only if there was a commitment to NO strings, no attachments and not being owned in any way…..but I have found this concept alone would take a revolution…..and perhaps that is my role. A Representative of the people, because I have not, nor will I ever forget what it is like be one. To not be in the upper class- to be middle class, to know the price of a gallon of milk and a gallon of gas, to cut coupons, to hunt for a deal, to know what it’s like to save for pre-school and to honestly feel, the weight of the unemployed on my shoulders…..I know, and may I never ever forget.

But until there are NO strings attached….I am here. I am blogging; I am using my free speech, my words, to usher in change.
