Anyone thrilled with the mess in Washington, DC? Do you find yourself grieving over unending incompetence, dim-witted scandals, moronic rhetoric and hypocrisy cascading out of our nation’s capital daily?

 

Anyone excited about the activities of our U.S. Senate? How about the House of Representatives? Do you like Vice President Dick Cheney’s actions for the past seven years? Would you again vote for the bungling, if not lawless leadership, of President Bush?

 

Would you again choose 4,000 of our kids sacrificed in an endless, ludicrous and totally fabricated Iraq War? Is the carnage we provoked in Iraq worth destroying our national treasures: our youth, our moral standing in the world, our financial balance or our military?

 

In six years, what have we accomplished in Iraq? Answer: weekly killings, bombings, mayhem, chaos and millions of refugees. Our military destroyed a functioning society under one of dozens of similar dictators in the world.

 

At what cost? Answer: $600 billion and counting! $12 billion a month with no end in sight!

 

Are we safer from Islamic radicals? You answer that when our borders remain wide open to terrorism 24 hours a day! President Bush wouldn’t know a terrorist from an ice cream cone. Dick Cheney wouldn’t know an IED from a bag of popcorn.

 

What do the democrats and republicans deliver for the money we pay them to maintain our country? What proud accomplishments might they boast?

 

Do they pride themselves about their $700 billion trade deficit that they facilitate annually by doing nothing to stop it? Do they brag about the $9 trillion national debt they bequeathed upon our citizens for decades to come? Can they stand tall as they rebuild Iraq but watch Katrina-ravaged New Orleans slog through the unending rubble of devastated neighborhoods of our poorest Americans? Such profound incongruence!
