Why is it that we have not heard anything about making "Foreign Aide" cuts to help the American economy raise the debt ceiling? I think it is utterly ridiculous that we are debating over revenue generating tactics and cutting important social programs in the US. Programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid that help the MANY (not the FEW) including the elderly should not even be discussed until we consider cutting money being spent outside the US. We also need to stop our involvement in wars without BIG NATO help! The last war in Iraq helped put us in the economic situation we are in along with the money spent in foreign diplomacy with China. China is buying our country!!!
We need some intelligent middle income class people who care about us to join our Congress and run it for the American people. People that are not only intelligent, but also have a combination of "common sense". Americans rise up and take back your country. There are two ways in this country to get things done: (1) the way it is being done now with the rich buying the lobbyists or (2) the bulk of the american people start taking charge and interest in our country. Go to Capital Hill in numbers and force back democracy on our country(in a peaceful, intelligent, and democratic manner) instead of the socialism state we are creating for the American. The second and only other way is for the bulk of the American people, the middle income and below to once again demand and see to it that what we want done-GETS DONE!
The other things we need to do is have term-limitations and totally reshape campaign funding so their can be an equal chance for more than two parties to represent us. Besides, who said we should only have Republicans and Democrats represent us? I think the two-party system is outdated, but only the rich can be elected as it is. Does anyone think that is fair?
Those guys that wrote our constitution are still the most intelligent congressmen we ever had in D.C.!
