What has happened to America? Simply put, our government is too big and invasive in our lives!
When did it become acceptable for the government to select one group of people and determine they should pay higher taxes, while others pay none?
Continued government regulations forces Americans to buy a certain type of light bulbs and force what kind of health care Americans will receive.
We have become a Nation not unlike, Venezuela, and many other countries where the politicians buy their political positions by offering their voters “freebies” such as free cell phones, housing assistance, free food and an almost guaranteed paycheck with no requirements to be responsible for their own actions
They appoint people to positions of power, including judges, government officials, and regulators, not on their qualifications, but more out of party loyalty and what “fund raising” abilities they have to get their sponsors re-elected.
Why would we even consider someone like John Kerry for Secretary of State, and Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense when both, over the years, have endorsed our enemies and criticized our friends, including many in the Middle-East? Their distain of the American military has been well known over their careers, simply review their records, they do not represent American values.
Out of “so called compassion” and other liberal ideal’s we release and fail to keep convicted criminals incarcerated and allow them to prey on our fellow citizens.
There is never enough money, they fail to pass meaningful budgets, and fail to keep government financial promises, for they know they can always place their financial mistakes back on us taxpayers.
They are all guilty, be it the federal government, State of Illinois, school district, park district to your local township -- it is never enough!
