Why Congress is Broken?

Updated on October 2, 2013

Broken Congress


Why Congress is Broken?

The answer is quite simple they are torn between idealism which is how they would like to run the government and realism which is how dealing with the exceptionally limited resources in order to run the government. This is not an unusual problem in any government and was especially true in Nazi Germany. There was definitive conflicts between how the government should ideally be run and then the very finite resources or realism in which Nazi Germany was run.

Of course the Germans came up with a not so unique solution to this problem and they exterminated what they considered all none essential personnel. I would suggest the same thing is happening in our country now. The old, the crippled, the disabled, the unemployed and the half breeds are all expendable so the rich can live their idealistic lives at the cost of the rest of the country.

I would like to point out a difference between Nazi Germany and the USA today. Nazi Germany sided on the working class and not the rich which could happen again. It is entirely possible the rich could find themselves without their money and let's face it who really needs rich people in America especially those who inherited wealth? And who could feel sorry for the new to wealth in this country over the last decade? They made their profits off of the hard working American people through a flat regressive tax which they didn't pay their share. By utilizing this corrupting practice no one can cry for the wealthy of this country when they lose all their wealth and have to be the maid of their illegal housekeeper because it is time to make that turn and the first candidate willing to do that will be president.

Then and only then can Congress begin to think about re balancing the equation between idealism in American policy and realism because without a redistribution of wealth this country will explode from within or better yet just shut down while our selfish politicians give themselves a raise?

So what happened to redistributing wealth? DC politicians are wealthy. They do not wish to give up their money to help their fellow American. How uncapitalistic of them?

The Balance


When Realism and Idealism Collides


The Three Big States

Now when reading the electorate map one can not help but notice that the majority of the South is impoverished. Twenty eight of the fifty states is either living in poverty or close to it. I have been to Ohio and it has serious financial woes. But the three big states I am looking at is California, Texas and Florida. The elctorate Math is there to have a candidate which runs on ending poverty in the United States.

There is an issue though. Despair and hunger has wisened uo the American people. College graduates who have a mountain of debt and can't find jobs with their substandard education can't find employment and are living with their parents. The next presidential candidate has to be a Washington outsider. Bachmann fans back off. We still need someone who lives on planet Earth. Respectfully, Hilary Clinton is a DC insider and so is JEB. They are creatures of the system and not capable of revolutionizing it. Also both candidates grew up with considerable wealth and have not suffered financially in decades therefore they can not understand or pull off understanding the American people's plight. There is also the potential with both candidate for more war with the middle east and no one wants that.

The impoverished will determine the next president and elected officials.

Me to the Nth Degree

Congress suffers from the syndrome, "Me to the Nth degree". They want power without responsibility, pay without work, and accolades without accomplishments. I have never met a more delusional group of politicians in my life. Before this past decade, politicians had a certain understanding that their nature was anti-social. Today's politician has no self awareness. Quite frankly, they all appear very mentally ill to me. This is especially true with the Tea Party who only serve Obama's agenda every single time they open their mouths.

I highly recommend all the Bums are thrown out until they understand who they work for.

Nancy Pelosi is one to lecture everyone on budgets. I will never forget the fact she was flying herself and her party around on a jet paid for by the taxpayer when people were unemployed and our troops did not have the proper equipment to fight wars all while Dick Chenney conducted the largest transfer of American wealth in the history of this country in the name of Weapons of Mass Destruction.

It is the "Me to the Nth Degree" Congress and it has nothing to do with party affiliation it is all about them and not the people they serve.

Simple answer is Congress is broken because the members serve themselves and their individual ambitions ahead of the countries. I have explained it several times as the head and the body being severed.

One in seven people in this country is on foodstamps and our politicians don't even seem to notice. They don't care, they don't understand they plights of the people they serve and it is all about them. Here are a few examples of what I mean.

Congress is in a Civil War at Taxpayer Expense

And then this is put out there...

In Conclusion

Why is Congress broken? Because they are selfish, delusional, partisan, and in a self destructive civil war for the last dollar bill on the hill so they can spend it at taxpayer expense. They are completely out of touch with reality. They do not care about the people they represent or the reputation of our nation they are sworn to serve. They only care about themselves to the Nth degree. And until the American people start revolting and throwing them out of office, and I mean all of them, it will continue.

It is the "Me to the Nth Degree" Congressional Syndrome and the cure is unemployment. I disagree with pundits. I don't think the Republicans will be the only ones taking the political blow on this but every single person in office.
