We hope you have been paying attention to what bills and issues are looked at in the House and Senate, because there is a positive correlation with when politicians are up for election – if there are contentious issues that may cost them seats, these bills are sent to the back-burner. If there is an issue that will win them votes, then it is time for a marketing campaign!
Unfortunately, we have a whole lot of politicking and very little representation. We like to remain optimistic, but it is easy to see that bad things happen when there are not checks and balances (hence our constitution and the separation of powers which are so important to protect).
Have you heard anything about the “Boss Tweed Era”? It is a classic example of politicking and bullying – something that we must be cognizant of at all levels of politics. We need representatives that protect liberty and protect our constitution – period.
There are many great events and organizations rising to the occasion, and we commend them! Be sure to check out these people and groups that are making strides to protect our liberties, and be wary of the politics in play (find many of them in our blogroll).
Let’s find people who represent WE THE PEOPLE versus worry about covering their own tails. See Get Out Of Our House (GOOOH) for more information.
