Politicians & The Games They Play

We pointed out in an earlier post that since Obama was elected, we need to keep our eyes on the soon-to-be-in-place government healthcare. We’ve also commented on how detrimental government-run healthcare would be for this country, citing that how this same system has failed in England and Canada. Now, evidently, the media have determined that there is a “consensus” for government intervention on healthcare. It would appear that our elected representatives are blind, deaf, and dumb to their constituents and to the events occurring around the world; however, we believe their refusal to take heed has to do with their desire for power. The more programs the government can control, the more our representatives can flex their political muscles. Please click on link below for full story.

So the governor of Illinois wants to sell Obama’s senate seat to the highest bidder. We fear that the number of corrupt elected officials in this country outnumber the honest ones. Not only are they out for ill-gotten financial gain and fame, but they’ll do anything necessary, including circumventing the law, to secure the political climate that suits them in order for them to reach those goals. We commented on this previously in our October 12 post entitled Modern-Day Highway Robbery. The link below will take you to an excellent article about political games. http://townhall.com/columnists/JerryAgar/2008/12/08/political_games
