America was never intended to have a professional political ruling class. But, that is exactly what we have now. Guys like Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, and our other elected representatives have become so disconnected from We the People they feel exempt from the effects of the laws they pass. They believe they are above the law itself. You'll hear them speak of "the American people" as if we are a separate entity, distant and distinct from themselves. Just as they have exempted themselves with subsidies from Obamacare that you pay for.
As they are sworn into office, over and over, they do take an oath to support and uphold the Constitution. But, that means nothing to them. If it did, the Constitutional merits of every piece of legislation would be debated even before they'd discuss the details of the bill itself. We all know that doesn't happen.
It time we have new leadership in Washington. We simply cannot afford to continue down this road to ruin as a nation.
