Everywhere you look, people want to know what is wrong in Washington. Depending on who you ask, you might get a variety of answers. If you’re asking a Republican they’ll point out a Democrat, and vice versa. If you asked an impartial judge if it was the Republicans fault or the Democrats fault I suspect they would say “yes”.
Yes, it’s the Republicans’ fault and yes, it’s the Democrats’ fault. Yes because everyone in Washington is taking liberties that they shouldn’t be taking. And since everyone who should be punishing them also have skeletons in their closet that they can’t risk being seen, all the injustice get’s swept under the rug and everyone prays that the tax payers don’t trip over it and start asking questions.
The mainstream media likes to make fun of the President for saying that he’s going to “drain the swamp” because they’re trying to make it sound like things aren’t that bad. The next time you hear something like that, feel free to consult this list and see if it doesn’t look like a bunch of swamp dwellers all ignoring that they’re sinking in a cesspool of crimes and deceit.
The last 8 years left us with a criminal ring in Washington running the city (and country) like a mob boss. Taxes were our protection money and their only code of ethics was to make sure that no one in their little gang gets pinched because if one went down the whole thing was going to collapse like a house of cards.
It’s hard to imagine that our government has gone this far in real life. We hear about governments that are run by thugs and criminals, but so many of us never thought it could happen here. At this point though, optimism is only going to make the problem worse. It’s time to face this problem head on and cut the head off the snake.
