Valley Viewpoints: ‘It’s a shame…’

by Vincent T. LaQuire (via e-mail)

Thomas Jefferson said it best: “The Tree of Liberty from time to time must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants!” And now is the time to renew those words, for America has become a den of thieves and tyrants. Like Mrs. Obama, I’m ashamed to be an American.

Our Congress — and I use the word “our” congress lightly — has become corrupt and thinks only of itself instead of the people it supposedly serves. I laugh at their servitude. They make laws that exempt themselves like the pigs in “Animal Farm” by George Orwell.

Wake up, America! You’ve voted for fools to rule you…the blind to lead the blind. We who are lucky enough to work and pay taxes watch as our tax dollars go to foreign nations while the children of our country go hungry and ignorant. Billions and trillions are spent in aid to those that hate us and want our demise.

The congress of this land eats our tax dollars without fear; knowing if un-elected they shall still collect their wages! Terms in office mean nothing.

Wouldn’t the normal employees love to have total health benefits and full wage benefits for life like our so-called leaders have?

The Tree of Liberty needs to be shaken or burned down. Those in

Washington not only need to be removed but also the benefits they voted for themselves need taken away. We need to return to a policy of this country first and to hell with the world.

The Bible, that the leaders hate, states that we must take care of our own first or be worse than infidels. Sadly, moral values have been lost is the muck of laws the representatives and I use that term loosely have imposed on us. A perfect example of this is Obamacare that was passed at the urging of Nancy Pelosi by stating, “Just pass it…no reading necessary!”

I for one say, “It’s a shame I can’t vote you out of office and have this removed, or your pay for life, or you constant pay increases; while those on Social Security receive a pittance compared to your pay increases and who now must live with the dishonor of having paid for it our entire lives must suffer to have it called a federal benefit…one we worked for and that you in office paid not one dime for!”

If Thomas Jefferson were still alive; along with the founding fathers they would say, “Shame, Shame, Shame on you!”
