As we head for what could be elections that will determine the fate of America, not everyone is as happy as they could be.
Dayton, Ohio, retiree Jeni Wilson, 68, a conservative independent, said she saw little difference between the two parties and was still weighing which side to vote for, or whether to vote at all.
“We’re stuck between a party of bad ideas and one of no ideas,” she said as she walked her small dog. “I wouldn’t say we’re spoiled for choice.”
The dilemma our country is facing may well be our undoing. While the emergence of the Tea Party has been heralded by some as a new direction for Americans, it may also do nothing more than act as a spoiler for the Republican Party in favor of the Democrats in the fall elections. The bottom line is we may end up with no one being very happy especially as we face a whole slew of new taxes immediately after the November ballots are cast.
The fundamental problem we face is this. No matter which way the political compass points, the people in Congress, that is those in power, have no desire to reduce their size or influence. The government has now come to the point where it is its own reason for being and will react negatively to any one person or group of person’s that would attempt to reduce it. The government is, in fact, now a malignant tumor that is feeding off the body of this nation.
Now, if there is anyone who would dispute that fact, I would like to hear from them.
This tumor will continue to ‘feed’ until there is nothing left, which in my opinion is not all that far off. If, I was a doctor and the US was my patient, I’m afraid I would proscribe some pretty drastic measures at this point. Even with that, I would advise the loved ones that the patient may not survive. The problem in the real world is that there is no ‘doctor’ with the cojones to make that call. So, everyone listen up, visiting hours are over. Please dim the lights, close the door and let the patient rest.
