I am of the mind these days that even with a Congressman or Senator who seems pretty conservative, if there is a new person who seems conservative, maybe it is time to replace the incumbent. Some reasons for that would be 1) Things are not improving with the Congress we have. 2) If they assume they will be reelected why fight the way “We The People” want them to. 3) When they realize they will be replaced if they don’t produce results they will start doing what we want. 4) Most will not impose term limits on themselves so it is up to us.
There are many more reasons but those are a good start. The reason the country is in the shape it’s in is we all got complacent. We didn’t keep an eye on them, as long as the politicians could make deals, take payoffs, be pressured by the parties and lobbyists, hide what they were doing with a media who didn’t do their job, they never paid a price for their actions. They keep passing laws that everyone has to live with except the politicians, don’t believe me, I refer you to ObamaCare. I blame myself for letting it happen, I blame Christians for not voting their values and yes I blame you too. We all have to share in the blame as well as work together to resolve it.
One person can’t fix it, one group can’t fix it, but if we work together we can do great things as a country. We all have to take responsibility and do our part. When we change our attitude, stop fighting each other, get our heads in the right place, WE WIN. It has happened over a long period of time. I know in my case I used to think my vote didn’t matter, after all it was only one vote. I now realize that is what they want you to think. I’m talking about both parties, the Democrats want to discourage Republicans and Republicans want to discourage Democrats. They then try to motivate their base. I say stop listening to both parties and vote every time. Don’t give them control. Make them fear the voters so they will actually realize they work for us.
I also stopped donating to the party. I now send money to the candidate I want to support. If you give it to the party then they decide where it goes. That is one of the reasons we get some of the politicians we have because the party funds the one who will vote the party line rather than what the people they represent want. Defund the party and you get more candidates who work for the people.
