Nation’s Congress still acting childishPublished 1:14pm Wednesday, October 9, 2013
I feel that the government shut down was, and is, a political game play on part of the Republican Party.
Yet I feel that all of Congress is at fault.
They surely do not represent the majority. They all should be terminated and we should start all over again.
Install a one-term policy on Congress. This way there can only be minor damage by playing politics and little time to develop “earmark” deals.
The United States Congress needs to realize who they are to represent and are held accountable, too. This ploy against our country’s fellow man and especially our servicemen and women abroad was a slap in the face, distasteful and disrespectful to all those served prior, present and future.
It is making a statement that politics are more important than the safety and security of our country.
We are supposed to be a great world power. A great powerful nation. A great free people. Yet we allow those few in Congress to dictate, throw tantrums and whine until they get their way.
It’s a shame. I remember these actions very well when I was a little tyke. I also remember the response of my parents correcting those behaviors.
If we are taught to correct that behavior that is unbecoming of a child, why do we continue to support the same behaviors from government?
Thank you. Just saying, “Change!”
