Not sure what to make of it….

Gentle reader, perhaps you can help:

I’m not sure what to make of it…

The continued kleptomania of the Federal Government, the ever downward spiral of the fiat currency that we use…the very fact that we in fact DO use unbacked paper promissory currency…

I don’t know what to make of the idea that the President elect is strongly populating his first cabinet with people that are essentially creatures of the Clinton camp, with their undoubted loyalty being to the afore named couple…

I don’t know what to make of the juxtaposed logic of drafting the people that know how to make things happen in the the festering sewer known as D.C. versus the fact that by drafting large numbers of the Clinton faithful, they (Bill and Hillary) have effectively won the election by default, and will play a major role (albeit unofficial) in the direction this country takes for at least the next 4 years…talk about special interests running the country!

So I ask, why did the Democrats spend so much money on a primary?

This could have been done with the flip of a coin, and a couple of contract lawyers to figure out the details of splitting the spoils in some back room in the Watergate Hotel.

With the flying circus that was the Republican showing, why did they bother at all?

For all the difference it made…what was all the campaigning about?

The nonsense spewing out of both sides was utter gibberish from start to finish. RARELY have I witnessed such a masterful display of not answering a direct question as this past campaign for the Presidency…from both sides

I find this only serves to underline the need for official status and equal access of more than these two bloated entities in any election cycle…

Why don’t we have more representation of the other parties out there in these elections?

One suggestion comes to mind here, and that is to make sure that ALL the parties with recognized status as a political party, be allowed to take part in the “debates” that are nationally broadcast for starters…

Then make sure that they all have equal time to be heard in other venues, and at levels currently (and exclusively) reserved to the big (bloated) two.

For what it’s worth (not much in the grand scheme of things I think…) We need to recall/fire/get rid of any way we can, the whole bunch of them…and their much loved gravy train, the lobbyists must go as well…

The Jeffersonian bent of my political leanings comes roaring to the fore front here, and I find myself wanting to restate things that I see wrong with government of every stripe and level from County to Country.

Rather than reinvent the wheel here, I would refer you gentle reader, to some of my previous writings on the subject…and of course to the greatest set of documents drafted by the hand of man…those being the Magna Carta, and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States…which in my humble opinion needs to be mandatory reading from elementary school to the U.S. Supreme Court, with special emphasis on those aspiring to political office…

Reading and comprehension testing of these basic tenets, and foundations of U.S. law are sorely missing, and that too needs to rigorously corrected.

Yet, even after all that…it’s hard not to wonder if the 50 States need to effectively end the federal estate, and go back to being 50 autonomous entities with a unifying shell known as a “Federal Government” with sharply limited authority, rather than the combination of a Medusa and a 5 headed Hydra that we have now…

Yet the upheaval that makes on it’s own would make what is referred to as the “Civil War” in the North, and the “late unpleasantness” here in the South pale by comparison.

I love my country, but I fear my government. It’s not supposed to work that way dammit!!
