People continually ask, what is wrong with government in the US? Why do politicians not do the work of the people? That question is not posed to just one party, its a pox on all of the Democrats, Republicans and Independents. The problem with government, is politics.
As the Congress faces one of its biggest and most important votes ever and the largest governmental intervention in the financial markets since the Great Depression, it appears that all 3 Senators on the Presidential tickets will miss the vote. How sad that we live in a time where Obama, Biden and McCain feel they cannot cast a vote because of the fear of what it will do to the politics of running for President. What ever happened to a time when a candidate voted their conscience, supported their decision and put forth their vision to “We the People”. The sad reality is that any vote, any comment will become exploited by the MSM and the opposing campaigns.
If we ever needed a President who could reach across the aisle and end some of this complete nonsense in DC, now is the time. It is up to “We the People” to make that choice as to who has done it in the past and who can do it now. End politics in Washington and make the government work for the people again.
