The problem with America is Americans

It has become all too easy to blame politicians for the condition of our nation, yet we give very little thought to our complicity as citizens considering we are responsible for who attains and retains the offices of our Government.

The public’s mindset right now regarding our fiscal situation is one of anxiety which is being carefully constructed by politicians and the media portraying the absurd notion that without increasing the debt ceiling a default is imminent.

The bizarre Czar complex

It seems rather astonishing that President Obama has been building an organization of Czars with barely a critical mention of it outside of mild fascination from the public. It is a very suspicious activity in light of the huge Government grab of power and control from us citizens during a time when every issue seems […]
