“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.” That’s the real message from the election. It’s been clear for years that Congress and the Washington establishment don’t do anything. Well, they talk a lot and pose for pictures and solicit campaign contributions—so they can get reelected and talk to each other some more.
Our system of government is broken. The lobbyists have taken over. Money talks and it doesn’t say, “Let’s help the little guy, the average Joe.” Money says, “Let’s help ourselves, the little guy be damned.” Corruption is the norm. Lying is expected. Honesty is in short supply. Unbiased news reporting is a myth.
It’s been said that people get the kind of government they deserve. So what does that say about America? “We have met the enemy and it is us.”
