Once again the American taxpayer is given the bill, even though they did not enjoy the cuisine. Outgoing Democrats, accusing the Republican Party of "holding hostages" have done a clear case of oneupmanship, by adding about one trillion dollars in earmarks to the Bush-era tax cut extensions, which they are going to limit to two years.
Even with a billion in additions that GOP leaders fought for the extension of unemployment benefits for 13 months, is a drop in the bucket compared to the added earmarks the lame duck House is pushing through. Never in the history of America (or any nation) has tax relief costs so much!
Tea Party Movement voters sent a message to Washington but they are not really listening to us. We only allowed the "other" party control because they did promise to head our wishes to cut spending, reduce government, stabilize the economy. They have welshed on all promises thus far.
To those GOP voters who argued that voting for an Independent or Libertarian party candidate would just be taking away from the GOP, I will tell you this: In 2012 I will vote for all candidates that are NOT members of the "D's" or "R's" because neither has demonstrated the will to follow the lead of the voters. I will be "interviewing" candidates for all offices from now until I receive my 2012 ballot, and I can tell you that it will be new faces that I seek, with a proven track record for integrity and service to the people. Political experience is not even a primary consideration, in fact, it may be a disqualification as most "career politicians" are detrimental the freedoms of the States and the People.
I am officially announcing my revolt against the Unconstitutional usurpations by our federal government and will do whatever it takes to restore this nation to the Republic founded by those that fought the British Empire to gain the very freedoms the present government seeks to destroy.
