The Audacity of Washington

While Americans were sleeping, their elected representatives were busy annointing themselves the "ruling class." Arlen Specter said it, but I can guarantee you most in D.C. believe it:

This is what's wrong with Washington, D.C. These power-hungry buffoons no longer see themselves as servants of the people. Rather, the people are but pawns in the game, to be manipulated for votes, to return the members of the ruling class to their ivory tower, then to be ignored until the next election season. On those rare occasions when they must actually associate with the undesirable public, they expect to be treated with prescribed respect, as kings and queens, regardless of whether they have done anything worthy of such courtesy.

It is time for the people of this country to remind Washington of its correct role as protector of the people. If you read nothing else from your country's founding documents, this single sentence, the Preamble to the Constitution, is enough:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Exactly how does this attitude accomplish any of those objectives? What has anyone in Washington, D.C. done lately to "form a more perfect Union"? Madame Pelosi accuses protestors of "carrying swastikas." Barbara Boxer dismisses our concerns because we're too well dressed and accuses us of trying to "hurt this President, hurt the Congress." It's all about them. Their fearless leader, The Messiah (peace be upon him), tells his party to "punch back twice as hard." Punch back? Punch back? Oddly, I thought it was his job to be the President of all the people, not to encourage punching those of us who dare to disagree with his infinite wisdom. When the President of the United States tells a large portion of the United States to shut up and get out of the way, it should be a red flag to everyone who loves this country, regardless of their ideology.

America is not broken, nor is her healthcare system. The people of America are outstanding examples of hard work and dedication. Washington, D.C., on the other hand, is irreparably broken and completely out of touch with everything that matters in this country. The only "hope" we have of changing that situation lies in firing every single one of them. The only "change" America needs is to throw out the garbage that is engaged in fundamentally remaking this country into a third world nation.
