I have lived for eighty years and am still waiting for Americans to rise to their obligations under the Constitution to take the helm to run the government both federal and state.

Sorry folks but it is time to stop wishing, and start doing something affirmative by breaking up the political quagmire in Washington. There are a number of things we the voters can do to turn our seemingly irreversible situation around. We must first come to grips with the fact that our political and economic future can no longer be entrusted to politicians who feather their own nest at the expense of the electorate/taxpayer.

At present out national debt is hovering around 14 trillion dollars, not counting the long term obligations of government, in paying for social benefits over the long term. We are in a state of bankruptcy and no additional bailouts of worthless paper money will help us.

While the Constitution prohibits any litmus test for candidates for public office, that applies to the making of any laws which would set those tests. We the people have the unencumbered right to select and vote for candidates who meet our own notion of exactly what a good candidate for public office should stand for and we can enforce it at the ballot box.

We have been deceived that we have a two party system. What we have is a one party system with different engravings on each side of the coin, which makes it a dictatorship.

There are a number of things we have observed over the years that have helped bring the country to where it is. The first and foremost would be the organized misinformation which we all were subjected to in the public school system. That would be the false history of the development of the United States. Guns, gunpowder, cannons and the saber, not God, created the United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The same deception began the expansion of the influence of the U.S. to where today it is has bases in foreign countries by the hundreds to maintain its intimidating influence for the benefit of the elite all paid for by the taxpayers.
