It's Time to Act on the Political Class

So, our elected representatives voted to waste more time on a bill that none of the represented want and which was defeated previously. What does that tell you about the political class? Are they that out of touch with their constituents? Or, more perilously for us, the represented, do they not care what we want?

Do they think we will forget before their next election to office?

I haven't fully analyzed it, but it does appear that those who are further from their next election were more likely to vote for reviving debate on this bill. Therefore, you could conclude that perhaps that is a reason.

While we are a representative republic and expect our elected representatives to exercise their judgment, they are also charged with upholding the laws of the United States. During this whole debate, it has become clear that our representatives have no intention of holding illegal immigrants responsible for their crimes. Why not?

Has our government become the home for globalists who see nothing special about the US? Are we merely becoming the trading post for all of the world's goods and services?

The political class are talking about the "Fairness Doctrine" and its resurrection. Is this a veiled threat to talk radio whose biggest names are conservative? The former Clintonista that wrote his report forgets to mention the liberal bias in other formats. Why talk radio?
