Poll ratings for Congress' performance have been low for decades and continue to decline, yet American voters continue to elect representatives to self-corrupting bad government. Voters simply don't get it! Good government is no more government than we need, yet voters allow it to keep growing, unabated. Indeed, voters allow government to increase its socialist bureaucratic stranglehold on our lives and our liberty, while big government zealots seize more and more control.
It simply doesn't make sense. Even so, the voters are poised to make it much worse. Particularly, when the only choice for president in the 2008 election will be either a Republican big government candidate or a Democrat bigger government candidate. And, Congress will be under greater control of biggest government senators and representatives. Those out-of-control lawmakers and regulators who are driving us down the road of social dependency, insecurity and economic collapse.
The answer is simple common sense. We have the best communications technology and the capability to establish voting networks connected to voter's homes, wherein we would require the truth and the capability to change government. We could get rid of the unconstitutional political party control of Congress, the courts and the presidency, and elect nonpartisan professional government managers. Truthfully informed voters would to decide matters of taxation and public policy so government could be reduced to no more than we need. Get it? It's time to save ourselves and our posterity. Let's amend the Constitution and do it!
