Time to Return to our Roots

I received a call from the one of the political organizations last evening asking me to renew my membership to help overturn Obama-care.

I can't believe it. We have developed into a country of obstructionists. I told the caller that when the Republicans start trying to work with the Democrats to govern this country in a bipartisan manner for the good of the country and not for the gain or loss of a political party, I would consider donating.

It is sad we have come to this. We are more focused on individual hot issues rather than one central big issue--Is it good for America and does it make us stronger and smarter?

Right now, the answer to that question is definitely, NO!

We have to do better or I fear we will dissolve further into a country of special interests where the central government will continue to be inept and unable to do their elected jobs. What needs to happen?

First--fix the budget and start running the country.

Second--provide for the common defense (sound familiar constitutionalists?)

Third--help the poor and homeless improve their living conditions without oppressive taxes on those who are successful.

Fourth--modify laws which turn common law abiding citizens into criminals among them certain new gun laws, drinking age laws, and many other well meaning but poorly implemented special interest sponsored laws.

Fifth--stop trying to find new way to tax people and start trying to find new ways to ensure domestic tranquility.

I am weary of getting calls from political action groups pushing single issues while missing the big issue.

It is time for a change--I believe in the Constitution and bipartisanship which focuses on what is best for America!  Is there anyone else out there who feels the same?
