HomeUncategorizedCongress And The Politically Ignorant Electorate. A Recipe For Disaster?

Welcome to America! The home of the brave spoiled rotten, bought and paid for politicians and the land of the free politically ignorant electorate.

8/2/2011 Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011 was signed into law, after being approved by the House of Representatives 269 to 161 and in the Senate 74 to 26 (including Senator Mitch McConnell). Fast forward to 12/28/2012 and the same folks that voted for Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011 are acting like they're surprised that the $1.2 trillion cuts in the Budget Control Act (BCA) are actually going to take place January 1, 2013.

These same politicians have also known, for months, that tax rates would be going up for everyone January 1, 2013. Yet they, Congress, have seen fit to do nothing!

Where is the outrage from the American people? There is no outrage and that is the problem. The American electorate, for the most part, is politically ignorant and the members of Congress like it that way.

  1. Has done too much to cause many of these problems. Now, politicians in Washington expect us to be ignorant. They think they can do whatever the hell they want and we are too stupid to know what they are doing let alone stop them. Sadly for the most part they are right.

  2. Too many people think a certain way because “that’s the way my daddy and mom did things” or “that’s the Pastor taught me”. If you read the Bible, the book that Christians claim to follow, and leave your personal opinions out of the picture, you may have distain for the Bible, especially if you are a FOX News watching, NRA worshiping Republican.

    I support the right to own guns because guns are private property (U.S. Constitution Amendment 5) and we have the right to own and bear arms, guns included. The second Amendment consists of two independent clauses describing the existence of a malitia and prohibitation of the infringement of the right to own and bear arms. What I do disagree with is the redneck mentality of the National Rifle Association.

    I was trying to get back into going to Church and there was a person with NRA bumper stickers on his jacked up pickup truck in Goodlettsville, TN who led a public prayer in the worship service. His prayer was “we need to quit bickering and choose a leader to lead this country”. The Liberatarian Party chose Gary Johnson. There was no “bickering” there. The Democratic Party candidate was Barack Obama. There was no bickering done by the Democrats. This guy just told God in his prayer that we all need a Republican for President of the United States of America. The things that I see wrong with this are as follows:

    John 18:36 – Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

    Or how about Mark 12:17:

    Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” (the T.E.A. party ought to read this).

    Also there is Romans 13:1:

    Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.

    So to all you people who have pictured the President of the United States of America as a monkey, or some other type of an Animal you may want to read this, especially if you are a middle east worshiping holy roller. If you are a member of the T.E.A. party and claim to follow the bible you may want to read Matthew 14:7:

    The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want.

    Or how about Galatians 6:2:

    Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (I’ll bet you won’t hear this from the T.E.A. Party, especially Paul Ryan or in the writings of the late athiest Ayn Rand).

    The electorate needs to leave tradition alone and do what is right by informing themselves. You know, there was a man who once told the congregation at a Bible study service on Wednesday night I was at that everyone neeed to hurry up and leave be this man wanted to go home and watch FOX News. Matthew 6:24

    No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
