Who is hearing the people?

Today's unemployment numbers are out and they are crazy shockingly high. I personally know more people that are out of work than are actually working. The US is falling off a cliff and yet the fight continues on in congress with the health care debacle. The President is focusing too much energy on Health Care than coming up with solutions to help companies and businesses create jobs.

The era of political entitlement has got to come to end. We elect senators and congresspeople to represent our interests, yet they sit up on the hill year after year seeming to be looking out for their own best interests; and hope to keep the people sedated enough to pass though their own agendas while no one is looking. We have got to hold our congresspeople and senators accountable for their actions. Are people actually surprised about what has happened in Massachusetts? Come on people, enough is enough. It's high time the lemmings are wake up. Some of my dearest friends and older relatives believe wholeheartedly (albeit stubbornly) that the Democratic party is the best representation for their beliefs and that anything the Republicans do is greedy, elitist and evil. The Republicans have embodied some of these traits, however the left is just as guilty of greed power and control.

There is an undercurrent emerging in our culture that cannot be ignored. That is of the Independent thinker. Please look at all sides of a political agenda before casting your vote for EITHER party. Do not jump on a train because everyone else seems to. That train may just take right of a very high cliff. Vote with your gut and your feet; fire all the people that are in power that are trying to pass laws (or not) that risk your safety and your livelihood. Remember, those people WORK FOR YOU; not the other way around.
