As if we need more proof that "We the People" have zero say and impact on national politics, it was again slammed in our faces.
We told the politicians in November we are tired of the ways things are going and we want it to stop.
How did they respond?
They passed a 1.1 trillion budget and gave up all the possible points of strength they could have negotiated from.
We told them since then that we wanted the person most responsible for leading that surrender replaced.
How did they respond?
The reelected him for another two years.
60 percent of us at a minimum, (I think it is higher than that) wanted boehner gone.
If ANYONE needed ANY proof we no longer matter in national politics you should finally have your definitive answer.
We are merely the ruled. The source for the money to keep the RULERS in power and comfortable. The SERFS!
I we ever needed any more evidence of what I have been saying, that our only option is to withdraw, we now have that evidence.
We must withdraw.
Withdraw consent to be governed by these people.
Withdraw our monies and our energies that support them and keep them in power.
Withdraw our support for companies that support them. Deal with local companies. Even if it costs more in the short term it will save you money in the long term.
Take any support you might have given to ANY national politician and place it will local and State candidates. Get to know them. Make them your focus.
The representative American Republic is dead. Not dying. DEAD! Waste no more resources in that area.
At this point, if we do not strengthen our State and local governments they will not be able to withstand the onslaught of what is coming.
The States are the only thing standing between us and the federal juggernaut.
That, after, all is how this Country was created and designed to be. In order of importance it was supposed to be the people, the State, and lastly the federal government. The States were always intended to be the intermediary between us and the federal government.
It is time we force our State governments to take up that position and do their job. They operate from a position of strength, even if they don't currently believe it or accept it.
If the States do not or will not stand up for us, then we are left with only one option, to stand for ourselves.
We should at least make the attempt to get our States to stand for us. Some of us might be successful and if so others will follow.
I feel time is short though. There are so many things that could bring all this down around our ears very quickly. Fortunately, any progress we can make in our States will help us when things do collapse since the States are closer to us.
So,bottom line? Write off national politics and go local.
