Change to think about!

CHANGE?

Not long ago I read a joke ... It said all the politicians
running for president are promising change to the American people. We send
them billions and billions of tax dollars and they send us the change.
Funny?

Not really; there is too much truth in it to be funny.

That got me to thinking ... They all promise change. How
about if they run on a promise of restoration rather than change.

A restoration that would take us back in time to a place
where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable. Change? That,
in truth, is what they have been giving us all along.

We used to have a strong dollar ... Politicians changed that.

Marriage used to be sacred ... Politicians are changing that.

We used to be respected around the world ... Politicians
changed that.

We used to have a strong manufacturing economy ...
Politicians changed that.

We used to have lower tax structures ... Politicians changed
that.

We used to enjoy more freedoms ... Politicians changed that.

We used to be a large exporter of American made goods ...
Politicians changed that.

We used to teach patriotism in schools ... Politicians
changed that.

We used to educate children in schools ... Politicians
changed that.

We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship ... Politicians changed
that.

We used to have affordable food & gas prices ... Politicians
changed that, too. ... and one could go on and on with this list.

What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change
that as well, if you will elect them.

When, oh when, is America going to sit back with open eyes
and look at what we once were and where we have come and say, enough is
enough?

The trouble is, America's youthful voters today don't know of
the great America that existed forty and fifty years ago. They see the world
as if it has always existed, as it is now.

When will we wake up? Tomorrow may be too late. When will
America realize ... Politicians are what is wrong with America?

What is needed is for the constitution to be amended to limit
all Senators and Representatives to TWO terms in office like the president.
Oh, by the way, no big pension either, social security just like the rest of
us. Being a politician shouldn't be a persons life work but rather a call to
service then back to being an honest hard working citizen.

PASS THIS ONE AROUND FOR A CHANGE

I could not agree more...I think doing that would fix a lot of what is wrong with the country!!! I do believe, that more than any one other thing would do the most good.

Politicians

Right on the money with this comment! Most politicians are lawyers and we all know what that means, these are the most self-serving SPOS on earth and will do ANYTHING to make laws that make life more difficult, more expensive and more unbearable and require the services of their colleagues go anywhere, get anything or do anything in the USA. In turn they get the money from colleagues to pay for campaigns that dupe ignorant hard working (stupid!) Americans into voting them back into office or into not voting at all out of disgust or antipathy.

These MF,s HAVE GOT TO GO!!!! We need to clean house in the next 4 years in the next two Congressional election cycles... Democrat and Republicans alike and we need to clean the rats nests out of the state houses as well.

I am sorry but I have had it , what these POS have done to this country is criminal and indefensible. While we are booting them we need to impose term limits and just as importantly limit how long a rep. chairs a comittee. Ithink there needs to be a system of rotation or 2 or 4 year election to chair a comittee. And maybe next time we can have Presidential candidates that are actual leaders with character, experience and who have not bought their way to the top!!!

Just my opinion...

That would get politicrats OUT, and public servants IN. No wonder they don't like that idea.

term limits

I agree the change we are getting ain't worth the paper it is written on. Term limits come with a political price as well. We saw that President Obama filled his cabinet with a lot of the same people that President Clinton used. I see this as a morphing of power from the elected officials to the so called advisors. These advisors would stay in power without checks or balances. Does anyone follow what I am tring to explain? I might be drunk, I'll go play with my monkey...
