Shutdown over: What next?
WHO REALLY RULES!
What better scenario for getting those idiots in our electorate to get passage for a
LINE ITEM VETO
President Obama has essentially done it by electing to veto a bill with an item attached that is not related to the issue of the primary bill. For many years there have been debates over the pork favorites from back room deals getting attached to a bill of significance so that an elected official can brag back home of “How wonderful I am getting this through for my wonderful state and my many loyal constituents!”
It has been time for years to eliminate the empire building by individuals and groups who begin to believe they and their cronies can RULE! We have just seen the mess created by those that have been using that little loophole for their entire political career to manipulate the entire United States of America and LOVING IT!
One of the primary shakers that helps those people get to that end are the lobbyists who also believe they can RULE! They provide the money and the enablers to accomplish specific objectives. Again, this is an issue that has been debated years, like:
“We have to do something about those lobbyists; They are buying our government and doing what they want with it.”
To paraphrase a statement from a politician on CNN’s interviews of today (10/2/13) referring to today’s mess, he said: “Outside business interests have been working over the summer when we weren’t paying attention” to put the mechanisms in place to bring about this objective.
Both of these issues – LINE ITEM VETO and ELIMINATING LOBBYISTS – have been used with astounding effect over this last year.
It feels like many, many, people have been under such pressure lately that they are actually saying what they think, good or bad, sensitive to the “old boy cult” or not, that it is the perfect time for the “good guys” could get up and be counted to put these issues in place. We can then find out…
WHO REALLY RULES!
