Here is my problem, We are paying taxes, and have no say at where our money is going... Somebody please tell me why my tax money can not go to services I want them to go to...Who the hell gave the government the right to give my hard earned tax dollars to other countries and people who hate us, yet ignore the people who really need the funds...IE our veterans?
We fought a revolution once over taxation without representation. I would call this the same, We have no representation in most cases today. Our elected representatives are not listening to the grass roots, the voters. They are doing what they want. Its time to stop. The voters have had enough.
IT IS TIME THAT WE TELL THEM HOW OUR MONEY IS GOING TO B SPENT
IT IS OUR COUNTRY NOT MUSLIMS OR ILLEGALS OR OBAMAS
I AM TIRED OF BEING THEIR ATM; EBT AND WHATEVER IT IS MY MONEY
IF WE STOP PAYING OUR TAXES SOMEONE WILL NOTICE
The PEOPLE gave them the permission to do so.
Those people are the nut cases and the ones that don't pay attention to what is going on or who they elect to run the country or spend your money or mine.
The best way to prove that is to watch Bill O'Reily one night when he has "Water's World" on. Hell, there are people who don't even know who our Vice President, Speaker of House or Senate Leader are, let alone who their congressman or state representatives are.
One half of the nation don't care or give a damn and the other 50% are split between Republicans and demorats. And, we all know who they are.
Ben Franklin once said, "Once the people know how to vote themselves money, the nation will cease to exist, and we are NOW THERE.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
There are provisions to monitor governmental spending. The problem is everyone who is, or should be, overseeing programs and the "Government Check Book" are to busy selling their votes for the money they bank.
Lobbyists should be removed from the halls of Congress and Washington, D.C. A law should be passed that prevents Congress from taking advantage of in-sider trading information that allows them to get in early on buying stock; Congress should be REQUIRED to comply 100% with EVERY law/statute that is levied on the Citizens of the U.S.. Congress should NOT be allowed to vote a pay raise for themselves. Congress should be required to be in attendance when bills are on the floor for debate.. Congress should be required to CERTIFY IN WRITING that they have read and understand ANY/EVERY piece of Legislation that they vote on. Congress should ACTIVELY/AGGRESSIVELY monitor and be allowed to check (stop) excess executive branch spending (like the $10M that Michelle has spent on Vacations just this year). The President should have benefits, but NOT a luxurious life style, at the expense of the tax payers. Need I go on??? I am sure there are those of you who could add to this list of OVER SPENDING....
we could pay them upon their performance, you did good, you get rewarded, sure would amount to a lot of savings....................we wouldn't have had to write a check for the last 6 years.
great comment, you made my day . I can go to bed with a smile on my face tonight............................thanks!
Got a very big excuse for not voting: Because in my state, there is zilch in the way of Voter Integrity Laws. You don't have to show any ID to vote; there is early voting going that is not properly vetted; the works. Both the Democrat AND the Republican parties are behind this appalling state of affairs, because they have apparently both figured out how to scam the electronic voting machines, and are hoping that their particular scams will win the day ON the day. It's a charade, a farce, a fraud; I refuse to have anything to do with it. Both parties need to get behind a major cleanup of the voting system in this country.
CLEAN ELECTIONS OR NO ELECTIONS. PERIOD.
Thank you!!! Whining and bitching, but where were they?? They choose not to vote, making us a gift of Obama, again. Maybe, when it really hits the fan, people will take notice, by that time, the game is over. If you do not care enough, to inform yourself on the issues, then maybe, you deserve what you get, but, the rest of us don't.
So what are You doing about this?
For God and Country
I agree but with half people on some type of entitlements it will not happen at voters booth. The great society has taught people to sit at home and let the working asses pay for everything. Most of these people make more than working man and they don't pay taxes,so why would they work. Permanent vacation with healthcare-housing-food-new car-cell phones. Why would any one want to vote when they have all this for nothing?
