What a crock of you know what!!! Have you noticed what is going on with all the vacant Senate seats. Of course, the scandal surrounding Obama's seat is well publicized. However, there are antics among the others also. Jos Biden's seat was taken by a handpicked crony to hold until Biden's son returns from Iraq and is old enought to take the seat. And, we now are seeing that Caroline Kennedy is going to get Hillary's seat in New York.
None of these people were elected. Obviously, there are procedures in place when a Senate seat is opened. However, the games being played show how the powerful are free to manipulate these situations without answering to the American people. Of course, the media seems to be involved in the entire ordeal too.
So how do we change it? As you know, we here are for radical overhaul of the entire governmental system. All who are in power these days quickly become corrupt. It is a "rich man's" club run entirely amok. Now, since they are intent on following a failed policies like the FDR programs or the European model of government, we need to stand up and say enough. The Founding Fathers wrote "by the people and for the people". This is completely lost today. Those in power feel they are entitled to do what they do. This entitlement mentality leads to blatant corruption across the board.
In the 1770s, the fearless leaders decided that it was time to shop for a new form of government. Well, I believe we are fast approaching that time again. Our system is completely broke and those who we entrust to fix it only abuse it more. It is time for everyone to stand up and say "enough".
