To Our Elected Officials in Washington
You were elected to serve the needs of the people of the United States. Look out your window, a lot of those people are suffering. They are waiting for you to help them solve their problems. If you spend your time fighting with each other and refuse to cooperate, that suffering will continue. Think about what you are doing and how much you could have done if you tried to work things out. You can stop a bicycle by jamming your foot in its spokes, but you will dump the rider, damage the bicycle and injure your foot. When you deliberately jam the government process, that is what you are doing. Think about US, the voters. We expect better things from you.
My name is Patrick M McCormick and I have created this blog as a platform for my political views as well as those of select contributors.
I believe that American Politicians have lost sight of their goal: To uphold the Constitution and protect the rights of the people of the United States. They argue and bicker on the floor of their respective houses, positioning themselves for the next election, while they accomplish very little business for the citizens of this country.
Meanwhile our economy is sliding downward. Millions of our precious jobs have have been exported overseas. Our social safety net and other public services are being cut. Our middle class is rapidly disappearing and the numbers of citizens existing below the poverty line is increasing dramatically.
I plan to examine the causes of these terrible changes to our American way of life. Your comments will help us all arrive at some important conclusions.
