When did it become “The Government is the the problem”?
I just watched the segment with Ken Burns about the National Parks on Morning Joe. (MSNBC 30 September 09) This question and an answer was brought up by Ken Burns.
Knowing the scandals that started in 1980's through today such as Star Wars, Savings and Loan, Guns for Hostages (now called Hold til Inauguration), Sex for Hire/Sex between Flights, Enron, Global Crossing, Halliburton, Blackwater (Xe), AIG, Citi, on and on and on what do you think the problem is?
As I see it, it resides in almost the entire Republican Party since 1980. Mainly the politicians and those voters who choose to keep them in place. The Democrats are not blameless either, there are about 20-30% of the Democratic Politicians who are just as self serving and corrupt. They all pretend to serve their constituents, but funnel our money to the 1/1000% of the Nation they serve and receive an occasional bone for their efforts. God forbid that half deaf, one eyed, one legged grandmother Tilly be given a free crutch from our Government because she receives food stamps and also chews tobacco.
The GOP, with the help of a few Democrats, have turned the Government into a huge CASH COW for the SELECT FEW. Those of us who work to produce all of the goods and services in this Nation should not be held captive by a few who grow Politicians to mine our pockets. Nor should they deny the truly needy among us. And believe me, they should not be laughing on the way to the vault.
