US Politicians: The Crooks Inside the Beltway

American Politics: The Crooks Inside the Beltway

American Politics has become like a Charlie Brown Cartoon. We are all sitting in the class trying to listen to the teacher (or our politicians) and no one can really decipher why or what they are saying. And while Americans want to support their government they are speaking in a language that is so far removed form the reality of the existence of Americans everyday lives that they sound like the Teacher of Charlie Brown. They make noise and seem to have authority but they make absolutely no sense at all. As Americans we are subject to interpret what they mean and the sad part about it is all I hear is “Blah, Blah, and Blah”. “HPV shots”, “Jesus Christ”, “Change”, “Yes We Can America”, what does it mean? Our Leander's words are like they are speaking in a foreign tongue and we can only make out of few of the words they say. Blah, blah, blah, Eric Holder, Blah, IRS, blah, blah, Benghazi, blah, blah, blah blah. DC can't find the truth but their only interest is living well off the backs of the American people who live outside the beltway. We have heard this rhetoric for years and things just keep getting worse. Gas is still almost $4 a gallon. Where is the relief from foreign oil? The question to ask yourself is that are you better off then your were five years ago? And if not has any leader explained to you why In your language: the language of the suffering, oppressed and disenfranchised.

We don’t understand American Politicians anymore which means they no longer speak the language of the people. Washington DC just doesn’t get it. They have lived inside the beltway way too long to be real people and therefore are not qualified to represent the people.

Fundamentally the politicians, or those involved in politics, have not shared in the ordeal of what it is to be an American in a very long time. They haven’t struggled and suffered like the rest of us. The do not represent our chore values but themselves. It is the "ME" generations of American politicians. They claim to nit only to get 80% of the populist vote but when they get into office they only take care of 3% of the country which is the wealthy. And from a practical point as a political leader it is easier to provide for only 3% of the country instead of the 97% (themselves) but then it is awful hard to get re-elected when you haven’t kept your campaign promises to the people.

So this year no matter what is said and we are saturated with, “Blah, Blah Blah, Blah.”. DC has completely lost its credibility. Even the pundits recap, “Blah, Blah, Blah Blah”. So the message is there is no money to do anything in this country but to pay the Clinton Global Initiative. Blah, Eric Holder, blah, blah, blah liberal media needs more rights and protections then the executive branch, blah, Benghazi, blah, blah blah, IRS etc.

Charlie Brown's Teacher

DC Dropping Rocks on USA Voters.


Inside The Beltway is Going to Have to Change to Keep Thier Jobs

I like the analysis that America was dropping like a rock before Barrack Obama by Debbie Wasserman Schultz. And while I heard it, I felt like a more accurate statement would have been DC has been dumping rocks on the voters for decades. The violent and horrific oppression by the USA government of the American Voting Public in campaign years is so terrible I have literally had to cut my telephone, cut my cable and if it gets much worse my internet access will go as well.

What is for certain is that there is no message at all this year. There is “Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah and Blah. Change, Hope and No More Taxes, Flat Regressive Taxes, America Jobs Act and Blah.”. I don’t think that DC doesn’t have plans. I just think it is clear they think they can continue doing business as usual without having to deal with the consequences of failed leadership by all parties. I wouldn’t dare want anyone reading this to believe this is a partisan argument because there is only one party in this country. That is the party inside the beltway at the expense of everyone outside of the beltway.

Truth Revealed

his hub was written a very long time ago and only minor updates have been made to it. What is clear is that when there is not a substantive basis for a presidential election then substantive progress is never made by the elected party. This is true of this party. Look at any of the promises made in 2008 and ask yourself have the been fulfilled? Are you better off now then wheoh you were in 2008? have gasoline prices dropped or is this administration going to contI ue to shitheirs countries wealth to the Middle Eawho which has continual and habitual anti-American hatred? Vermount has been on biofuels for years and do not suffer the economic depressin the rest of the country suffers. We have the technology so why aren't we using it? For pennies we cold run cars on propane as do the Australians and the Sweds and yet we pay a lions share for spoiled food and over priced gas.

Were is the transparency? I hear it is hiding behind national security which Demcrats have bent over backwards to tell me it does not exist.

What about equal rights? Last I heard they were dead. I would ask a Gay married couple but there are not any.

What about jobs? If you live anywhere but inside America there are plenty. I have been offered jobs in other countries. But inside America a person with an advanced degree can't find a job.

Who is resurrecting the American Dream for the American people because all I see is a bunch of politicians saving themselves. They need to us name skinoting the game before taking another bite to eat and away from the American People. We don't have Imperial People in this country but you wouldn't know it by the departing of wealth especially as told by the liberal media.

How to Turn "Blah" into a substantive dialogue with the American People

First politicians have to step away from their usual tricks. We get them and are not amused. If they want to be re-elected and heard they have to start speaking about the bread and butter issues of America. Theÿ have to build a country which has jobs and not allow for more immigration for individuals who do not have a certain amount of wealth preferably when converted in to USD millions, they have to havJason's and most importantly they have to have family members who are citizens of this country who are willing to assume both the legal and financial responsibility of the newly immigrant's famity member they sponsor. This is required in England and is well tested therefore it is a reasonable policy in the United States of America. The only exception of course is if they are willing to serve in the military. We have always made this exception.

We know the government spends too much money on lavish bashes at the people's expense but don't throw that on the news instead of discussing what a disaster Iraq has been left in. Let's not repeat the mistakes of Vietnam but take ownership of this failure. n the long run it maybe the only political card we have to play.

And for goodness sakes let's all strap all the debt on the debt clock onto each person who has served in public office and corporate rations which have profited so greatly during this war. Sell both Bush libraries to Saudi Arabia. People outside of the beltway did not have any control over going to war spends bing therefore it is not their bill. It is those who were in power and those who profited.

Finally, everyone in Hollywood needs to pay their federal income taxes. If they can take Paychecks internationally then they can pay income taxes. Perhaps Hollywood would be taken far more seriously if we felt they were on a, even playing field with us.

Recycle old tricks isn't going to provide leadership in the USA but truth abut the bread and butter issues and placing the Americans before you first above public servants.

That is how leaders cold have a substantive dialogue with America.

      Hi ruffridyer,

      It is good to read your comment. I think that they are either not born to poverty or they forget where they came from very quickly like Bill Clinton. And so yes, it is sad they don't represent the majority of America.

      Thanks for liking the reference to the Peanuts' School Teacher as I watch the debates and the president as my political articles are the most highly viewed I just find they are saying less and less. So to me it is just sound bite after sound bite and it doesn't make any sense.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      I feel one of the main problems is the people elected to office are usually born into wealth and money and have no idea or concern for the majority of american's that they are suppost to represent.

      I love your reference to the peanuts school teacher. No one understands what she is saying.

      Hi Peter,

      I can always count on your frank comments which always make me smile. Obviously you and I didn't drink the cool aid around here. I was a little concerned writing such a frank hub but it does seem to be "blah, blah, blah" from the politicians. Maybe they could save themselves if they could say something besides, "blah" but it hasn't happened yet.

      I always love hearing from you and I value your posts.

      Your Friend,

      Most of the folks inside the beltway are guilty of criminal acts against the U.S. They need to be removed and prosecuted. This will never happen since the biggest crimes against humanity that ruined our economy and literally stole hundreds of billions of our money by the Banksters and Wall Street have gone unpunished! Not one of the theives has been arrested, they make Bernie Maddoff look like a boy scout. We must sweep the slate clean and start with people that care about our country. It's what they do not what they say that matters, Thanks for an enlightening article JT, your friend
