When in the hell are the Democrats going to do what they were elected to do??!! This is so reminisent of the Republican take over in a prior election. The only thing that is missing is the "Contract for America." The Republicans didn't do anything they said they were going to do then either.
We elected the Democrats to get us out of that hell hole we created in Iraq. We are still there with one American after another being killed daily. What happened? They caved to the head of the American Nazi Party, George Bush.
We elected them to do something about the gouging going on with big oil. What has happened ... NOTHING! They caved in to the folks who pass out the $$$ in DC, the lobbiests.
We elected them to protect our privacy and to stop domestic spying. Yep, they caved in again to the threat ... just a damn threat of a VETO. What are they thinking?
I am so ashamed and embarrassed over the leadership of the Senate and the House. They both are useless and need to be replaced. They need to find someone who has the gonads to stand up to the White House and take it to the floor. If Bush VETOS the bill, then take it to the people.
To my knowledge, there in not one thing the President can do that Congress cannot over ride. NOT ONE THING! We have a majority in the House, but what do they do? CAVE! We have enough votes in the Senate to override anything the President does, but what do they do ... CAVE!
Instead of piss, bitch, moaning and groaning about the President, it is time we start piss, bitch moaning and groaning to those people we elected (well for those whose votes got counted) and get the ball rolling.
In my warped mind, we the people, elected the Democrats to do 4 things.
1) get us out of Iraq
2) repeal the treaties that have taken hundreds of thousands of jobs to 3rd world countries
3) protect our individual privacy and cease the domestic spying without judicial oversight
4) BALANCE THE BUDGET!
Now, I ask you to look at those four basic items and tell me, no yourself, what have they done? I'm afraid you will see, NOTHING has been accomplished whatsoever!
Whew ... got that out of my system. Now, please do what I do. Call your Congressperson and tell them you are tired of what is happening in Washington. Tell them they were elected to accomplish specific tasks and have lost sight of why they were sent to DC. Tell them you want ACTION! and you want it NOW!!
Thanks for taking a moment to read this. I hope it makes you mad, not at me, I'm not a decision maker, but I hope it awakens you to the fact that the Democrats we elected are no better than the rectial orifices who were already in office. Please, do something to make change in America, while we still have one.
