It has a ‘Democratic wing’ that likes war and taxes and individual welfare, and it has a ‘Republican wing’ that likes war and deficits and corporate welfare.”
~ Judge Andrew Napolitano, Anchor, Freedom Watch, FOXBusiness Network
Republicans are the only thing that makes the Democrats look good.
~ Dylan Ratigan
Because last I checked the Democrats were still playing games on energy, they were still playing games on the deficit, still playing games on Health Care.
I’m not endorsing Republicans here, I don’t want people to misunderstand me, but I find it kind of humorous that everybody wants to get rid of the “distraction” so that they can go back to not doing anything?
~ Dylan Ratigan
When people say there’s not enough bi-partisanship, I very often think, no there’s actually too much. On Afghanistan, too much - we have two parties, we have one policy. Gun control - two parties, one policy. Marijuana - two parties, one policy…There’s a lot of that in this country.
~ Bill Maher
555 People - By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred Senators, 435 Congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court Justices equates to 555 human beings out of 300 million citizens, are directly,
legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country…
…Those 555 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con, regardless of party. …What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall.
…It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 555 people who stand convicted, by present facts, of incompetence and irresponsibility.
…I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not directly traceable to those 555 people.
…There are NO insoluble government problems.
…Do not let these 555 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject;
to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from who they can take this power.
…Above all, do NOT let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics that prevent them
from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 555 people, and they alone, have the power. They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people, who are their bosses!
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
