Will it Take a Broom or a Wrecking-ball?Robert M. Collinsworth Salem-News.com
At this point I sincerely hope that the broom can still do the job and we don’t have to resort to a total demolition and rebuilding of both political parties.
(DENVER) - AP published a story yesterday (May 26, 2010) by PHILIP ELLIOTT titled “Tea Party win embarrasses GOP establishment”. There is no question that this loss was an embarrassment to the GOP.
Democratic losses were every bit as much as an embarrassment to the Democrats. It certainly seems that neither the Republicans nor the Democrats get it.
The American Taxpayer is simply tired of the same old business-as-usual approach from the politicians from both parties. After watching some of the congressional votes over the past year, it is a wonder the American taxpayer is willing to go with the recommendations from either party for even a single candidate.
This is not just about a Tea Party or Coffee Party radical uprising. The very existence of these two groups is simply a symptom of a larger problem . . . that problem being placing the desires of the respective parties above the desires of the taxpayers and doing so the vast majority of the time.
Both sides of the aisle have been busy spending our tax dollars as if it was their money because that is exactly how they see it. Our Congressional representatives have forced a health care plan on us that none of them were willing to sign-up for.
They have spent our Social Security funds but left their own retirement funds 100% untouched. Does this sound like they have our best interests at heart?
The Democrats and the Republicans have managed to convince themselves that the American taxpayer cannot live without them. Their view seems to be that only party leadership (if you can honestly call it that) is the only source of rational decisions regarding who is the best person to run for a specific office.
It appears that both parties are learning just how offensive that stance is to us.
It is like my wife says: “If you house is too dirty for the vacuum, it is time to grab the broom and clean house”.
At this point I sincerely hope that the broom can still do the job and we don’t have to resort to a total demolition and rebuilding of both political parties. It may come to that approach . . . but, that is just my opinion.
