Now that the Super Congress drops any vestige of equal representation within the House or the Senate, many people ask what is next. The concept of a Republic is a core element that separates the American experience from that of most “so called” democratic countries. The funeral for our Republic deserves to be the newest national holiday. Most oblivious taxpayers do not even know that the death of the Constitution occurred well before any of us were born. Yet, the country carries along with the myth that out vote counts in elections and that we have representation in the halls and corridors of government.
As long as you are not part of the No Labels = the Ignorant Middle, you are finally getting the message. The investigative news nexus Raw Story likes to report headline reports.
According to a Washington Post poll released on Wednesday, just 21 percent of Americans are satisfied with the way the country’s political system is working, down 17 points from November 2009. Forty-five percent of Americans now consider themselves ‘very dissatisfied’ and 33 percent consider themselves ‘mostly dissatisfied.’
Additionally, just 26 percent of Americans believe that the federal government can actually solve the country’s economic problems, down 21 points from October 2010 and down 37 points from February 2002.
No wonder the Tea Party movement erupted.
The annihilating tax burden dooms any sensible reform that a sincere or honest official, might infrequently offer. Since the debt, can never be paid off, without the entire destruction in the purchasing power of the currency, the political class finally comes clean. The obliteration of Federal Reserve notes, euphemistically once known as the US Dollar, affects everyone. However, the same does not apply to the taxation leg of this crippling disease.
