The Politician and the Mooch

Two of the greatest threats to Liberty and Freedom are the politicians and the moochers. The politician and the political system uses wealth redistribution to create a welfare state. The welfare state provides for the moocher what he or she could not or would not provide for themselves. The government politician believes that each and every problem in society(even if government created the problem to start with)can be fixed with another tax-payer funded(welfare)program, or two or three. The moocher spends his or her entire life looking in other people’s wallets, wanting what others have but unwilling to work for it.

The politician is wedded to the moocher. The moocher is wedded to the politician. It is a marriage made in Hell and will always be so. There is now way that one is willing to divorce the other. I would even say that you could not separate the politician from the moocher or the moocher from the politician with a crow bar. It is a relationship of dependency, want and need. The moocher wants that which they are not entitled to and most certainly did not earn. The politician needs votes.

Like many others, I will not voluntarily lift a finger to help those who will not help themselves. If you do not work you do not eat. I will offer a hand-up to those who at least try to better themselves. I will not give a hand-out to anyone, no how no way. I also believe that as far as entitlements go, a person is entitled to exactly what they have earned, no more or less. If a person feels that they deserve better or are entitled to better or more, they had best be willing to work for it. Welfare is not an entitlement.

The moochers know that I would not freely hand over my property to them. This is where they need the government. If they want what is mine they must rely on the government to take it, even by force. The moochers depend on a government that would use force to take from another to give to them. We have reached tax season, which should be officially titled “Open season on the producers of this Republic”.

On a personal note. Just putting the finishing touches on my taxes for last year. Forms are filled out(checked and double checked), W-2’s attached, 1099-R attached, envelope addressed only one more thing to do before mailing it on Monday. And that one more thing is to write out a check, a substantial check to send to the government. Another “pound of flesh”.

So let me discuss the politicians and the moochers.

First, let me address the politicians for just a minute or two, possibly more. You have caused all of this. You have created a Tax Code that will at some point eventually kill off the middle class, bleed us dry so to speak. The tax code you created is exactly what will sooner or later bite you in the ass. You write tax laws that protect the wealthy. You do this because you need their money for your campaigns, either for election or re-election. If you take their money by taxation or even seriously move in that direction, you will get no more donations. At this moment you only pay lip service with talk like, “the rich need to pay their fair share”. So what you do is you buy the support and the votes of the wealthy by not “making them pay their fair share”. You can’t really tax the moochers. Why? Glad you asked. You wrote and write tax codes that created them. You get to give them other people’s money in order to “buy” their votes and loyalty. There is simply not enough wealthy voters to elect you if the moochers turn on you. You are wed to the wealthy because of money, while being wed to the moochers because of votes. You truly are an unfaithful lot.

When it comes to “paying one’s fair share” you politicians have yet to ever say what the fair share is or might be. There must be reason you never attach a number to the fair share thing. There is another thing that deserves mention. Not only are you the ones who decide how much money to spend or give away you have also took it upon yourselves to be the decider of who pays taxes and how much.

Here is what you politicians do not understand. The only vote you do not have to buy is the vote of the true middle class. Our vote is not for sale. Our vote is earned. How do you earn our vote? Again, glad you asked. How about something as simple as governing by the Constitution. That is all I ask. Your job came with an instruction manual, you probably should have read and applied it.

You, the politicians, might want to start getting busy with that little task. The middle class is ever shrinking, we are no longer young. We will at some point leave the work force. There will come a time when income will no longer exist for you to tax the crap out of. You will at some point need another source of revenue. The wealthy will not stand for you taxing the crap out of them. Your only other choice will to yank the government teat out of the mouths of the moochers. They will never stand for that. You will soon be between a rock and a hard spot. As for the political practice of Borrow and Spend sooner or later no one will loan you money to spend. If you can’t tax and you can’t borrow how will government exist?

Just because you pull the government teat from the mouths of the moochers does not mean that their appetite for “free” money is or will be satisfied. They will still demand more and more. You created them and you will have to live with your creation. They will look for it. It will do them not good to look in my direction, for you will have already taken all I have and given all I had to them. As they say you can not get blood from a turnip. They will look to you. You will at that point have two choices. First give them your property. Second is to become Robin Hood, take from the rich and give to the poor. Pretty much going to suck to be you.

Now to the moochers. These are the one’s who need the protection of government, they will never seek protection from government. More than that they stand in the way of those who seek to limit government. How? Glad you asked. They vote to keep their protected status. By being protected and provided for by government, they rely on government to devise a plan for others to provide for them what they either can not or will not provide for themselves. The plan government uses is the Tax Codes. They receive money from government that they have never earned. There was a time when a tax refund check was a refund of the money the government took from the wage earned that was a bit too much. Those times are long gone. Now the moochers receive more than they ever paid in, thousands of more dollars. They spend the money like it was water. Making purchases they would not otherwise make, again regardless of cost, because it actually cost them nothing. Money spends pretty easy when it is the money of other people. Money spends hard when it is your money.

They receive income, tax-free income, courtesy of the government. It is not a loan it is a hand-out, never will it be required to be paid back. They receive subsidies to feed their family, tax-free of course. It is sad when a moocher eats better than the middle class, the true middle class. It is even worse when a moocher can provide for his or her family better than a true middle class American can.

They feel entitled to the property of others. They exist solely because of the endeavors of others. They exist because government, through the Tax Codes take by force from others and give to them. They are the freeloaders of society, they demand a free lunch. There is no free lunch, someone somewhere must foot the bill. They demand their needs and wants be serviced no matter the cost. They make these demands because it costs them nothing. They would scream bloody murder if they had to pay the cost. But they do not have to worry about that, government is the way and the means. They are protected by the “bloody bayonet” of government. The very same “bloody bayonet” that has pinned States Rights, Conservatism, the Middle-Class and Christianity to the ground.

To be fair about the whole moocher thing, there are two types in the moocher class.
First are those in the Moocher class by choice, courtesy of government. These know what they are. They have remained on government assistance for generations, and will remain so for generations to come. They have never contributed a single dime to the Welfare of the Republic. They only take and demand more.
Second are those in the Moocher class because of the government. These do not even realize they are moochers. How? Glad you asked. A political smoke screen, what we used to call “smoke and mirrors”. These are the ones who actually work, some even earn what would be called middle class wages. These actually think that they are contributing to the welfare of the Republic. How? Again glad you asked. The tax code is written in such a way that it appears that they actually pay taxes, after all their pay stub shows payroll taxes were deducted. This is where the smoke and mirrors come in to play. The truth is revealed when it come time to file taxes. They get back every dime they paid in and additionally get thousands and in some cases many more thousands than they ever paid in, depending on how many children they have managed to download. This is what ticks me off even more about “those people” is that after they get their “tax refund” they march their happy asses down to the Food Stamp office to get their additional “benefit”. Their next stop will be the WIC office for even more “benefits”. Always taking as much as they can, after all they are “entitled” says the government.

No matter the circumstance of your arrival in the moocher class, both have at least two things in common. First, neither will vote for anyone who will give them less. That is because you will only demand more. Second, the only effort you will exert is the effort to remain a moocher. You have no desire to enter the true middle class. You wouldn’t dare.

Since I have not heard of a single person returning their Tax “refund” back to the government, I assume none of you did. So you spend that money, have good time, buy lots of stuff and please do enjoy yourselves. Do one thing for me if you do not mind, make sure some of the stuff you buy has payments attached, like a new car. You can not afford a new car and the payments associated with it. This is going to cause you to have to sell some of your other property. Perhaps to a Pawn Shop. It does my heart good to see a big flat screen TV, game console and the like in a pawn shop. Oh, do not worry I will pass it by no matter the cost. Why you ask? I already paid for it once. I’ll be damned if I will buy it again.

Oh, another thing. Just because you happen to “qualify” for all or some of the welfare programs does not mean you have to go get it. But go ahead and take all you can. The more you take the sooner it will run out. Enjoy it while you can and all you can, after all it has cost you nothing, yet.

You the politicians and moochers have pretty much run this Republic into the ground. It can still be saved. There is time, there is always time until there is no more time. But, then again I believe that neither the politicians or the moochers give a damn. You will both run out the clock. Stupidity and Greed.

Same old Song and Dance

The motto of the republican party should be, “Making Excuses Again”. It seems that the republican party establishment has no intention of doing anything, except making even more excuses. They never had a plan to repeal Obamacare, and it is even quite possible they never had any intention of doing so. They the republicans in congress have had since the ACA was passed to come up with a better plan. But then again it was never about care in the first place. What the ACA was about was government, Big Government, which suits the republican establishment just fine. After all the republican party was founded on the principles of centralized government, strong government, big government. The ACA was never about affordability or care, it was about government force. The government by passing this law had a way to force the American populace to buy something they neither wanted or needed.

The republican leadership has a plan, but their plan is not what the populace wanted or expected. There never was a plan to repeal much less replace the ACA. The only plan the republicans have is a plan to stay in power. There is one group of republicans that plan to make changes in small steps or phases over time, a protracted period of time. Come the next election which is about 19 months away the entire House and 1/3 of the Senate will be up for re-election. I can just hear the republicans running for election or re-election now, we are almost there on the way to repealing and replacing Obamacare. Keep us in control and we can finish the job. There is yet another group of republicans saying, slow down we have plenty of time we have to get this right.

They have two plans actually. One is to do nothing, but stay in control of the House and Senate, the other is to have a scape-goat. If the republicans lose control of either the House or Senate, possibly both, they can blame us the electorate for them not getting the job done. They will blame the voters for their failures, even though they have had years to get this done. If they somehow to retain control of the House and Senate they will blame the democrats for obstructing them. All they have to do at this minute is to look in the mirror and they will see the real problem. It is the republicans, they lack the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing. They obviously stand for nothing.

Since 2010 they have made claims that each of their gains were not enough. Now they have everything and again we get nothing. A few posts back I equated the 2016 elections to that of the Normandy invasion, now it appears that the 2016 elections have become the equivalent of the Anzio landing. Rather than go inland they instead remain on the beach.

It seems that the republicans, are just that republicans. There are a few Conservatives strewn about in the republican party but not enough, there may even be some hiding among the democrats. There are some in the republican party that claim to be conservatives, but have no idea what conservatism is. To them it is just a word, but it more than just a word. A politician will understand the meaning of conservatism.

There is an old saying concerning socialists and communists. It goes something like, A communist is no more than an impatient socialist. Socialism and Communism are both about big government. The communist wants it now, the socialist is patient, willing to take time. The end result is the same. Destruction of Conservatism. It is not only that the republicans will fail the legal and lawful citizens of this republic when it comes to the ACA, they will fail America on everything. Political party first.

I reckon this is what happens when there is only one political party, there will be only one type of government. It will not be the type of government left to us by the Founding Fathers, it will instead continue to be the one they warned us about.

Has it gotten to this point?

It is starting to get a little ridiculous. This Republic is about as fractured as it can get, short of going completely over the cliff. The individual factions involved in this, I believe have not completely thought things through.

Try it.

Try it.

Each “plan” has consequences intended and unintended. Perhaps it is time to take a breath, slow the hell down and think.

I guess this is a good lace to start. Yesterday, I heard that some of the “distinguished” democrats(socialists)in congress are considering using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

this goes for women too.

this goes for women too.


Are you kidding me? You are really reaching, perhaps even overreaching. The way I heard it was that the plan was to remove President Trump because of or due to a diminished mental capacity. If you really want to see a person suffering from a diminished mental capacity look at yourselves, take a good long look, the videos are out there. But, let’s put that aside and go back to your “plan”. No matter what methods you use to pull off your “plan” the people will see right through it and you.

So for argument’s sake let’s say that you pull this off. After finding the requisite number of turn-coats in the administration to draft and send the letter, you remove President Trump. All you have done is to obtain your ends. You got what you wanted, you got the consequences you intended.

Have you ever considered what happens next? Those would be the unintended consequences. The people who voted for President Trump may not be willing to accept your actions. President Trump was elected because the voters have had just about enough from the “crap” from politicians. You will notice that I used the words “just about enough”. There will come a time when the ones who voted for President Trump will stand no more.

Now you find yourself between a “rock and a hard place”. You are right now where you thought you would never be. Another thing, I believe there are some republicans(socialists)hiding in your ranks. You find yourselves with a non-politician sitting atop the government, and being a non-politician he is not interested in gaining more power or control. He recently sent your bathroom issue back to the States. When was the last time a politician did that? He through the powers of his office issued an executive order, for every new regulation two must be eliminated? Lessening the power and scope of government. Again, when was the last time a politician did that?

Why are you so desperate? I’ll tell you why. The “demon” you built will be the instrument of your undoing, that’s why. Many on the left and the extreme left are running around screaming “he is not my president”. You now find yourselves having to do something before they destroy you.

That leads me to this. The State of California wants out of the Union, there is even an effort to get that initiative on the ballot. California wants to secede. Personally I wish you success, go in peace. When you leave do not forget to take your Representatives and Senators from Washington, D.C. with you. So all you that are “protesting” that President Trump is not your president can have your own country and elect your own president form your own government and all that goes with it. Then you can have the president you want. I do wish you happiness. This goes for all the other states who are not happy with the current president. Leave and take you Representatives and Senators with you as well. Good Luck to you also. You socialist politicians are not trying to remove President Trump so you can keep your job in D.C. are you?

I just had a thought. If you socialist politicians had not invaded and prevented the Southern States from leaving in 1861 President Trump would not be your president. Think about it. All the Electoral College votes from the South that made the difference, would not have existed if the South could have gone their own way in peace.

God will Vindicate(Prove Us Right)

God will Vindicate(Prove Us Right)


I like the Motto DEO VINDICE, God will Vindicate(Prove Us Right). God does work in His own way and in His own time.

But no, the North had to bring the South back into the Union by force. At the Muzzle of a gun and the point of a bayonet. Just think if you had just let us go you could have had the president you wanted.

That brings me to this question. Is that why the Leftist Socialist Progressives are so anti-gun? With out the gun the North could not have forced the South to come back.

My ancestors may be proven right yet.

One does have to wonder

What exactly is the objective of the rioters? I mean really what is it they want or do not want? Do they really think that rioting and protesting are one and the same? Could it be that they have gone full Orwellian?

It is obvious that they live in an Alternate World. A World where Lies are Truths and Truths are Lies. A World where Peace is War and War is Peace. A World where Anarchy is Law and Order and Law and Order is Anarchy. A World where Love is Hate and Hate is Love. A World where Tolerance is Intolerance and Intolerance is Tolerance. A World where Democracy is Fascism and Fascism is Democracy. A World where Wrong is Right and Right is Wrong.

As for me, I believe that all this began with the Education system, no not education but Indoctrination. This is proven by the appearance of so-called educators participating and encouraging the riots. The problem with these “wacked-out” educators, is that they are teaching the next generation, no not teaching but continuing the indoctrination process of the next generation. The next generation of what you ask? The next generation of Educators, Doctors, Lawyers, Corporate Executives, Journalists, Engineers and even Politicians. Think about this for just a minute. When you send your children to Public School will they receive a good education or will they be further indoctrinated? Scary thought, isn’t it?

It is possible that the Leftist Liberal Socialist Progressives have taken the position of “If we can’t have it then no one can” when it comes to this Republic. There is also the old mantra of the Socialists to consider, “The ends justify the means”. If their objective is to Transform this Republic from a Constitutional Republic into a Socialist Nation they have little care as to how the accomplish their task. Whether it be the riots, threats against President Trump, vicious attacks on Trump supporters or vicious attacks on anyone who has a differing opinion.

They risk being arrested and charged with crimes because of the rioting, but they do not care if this is the price they must pay to reach their ends. They damage and destroy public and private property again without care. One has to wonder how far are they will to go to accomplish their ends. How far will they go? They have faced little opposition and few have been arrested. Law enforcement has done little to stop the unrest(rioting), so what happens when it spreads? Can or will Law-Enforcement allow it to continue? At some point Law-Enforcement will step in and attempt to restore law and order and they know that. Maybe that is their temporary objective, just a step towards their ultimate ends. Law-Enforcement intervention will give them a new cause in their quest. They will get to shout “Police Brutality”. Could that be it, could they be seeking a large-scale confrontation with the Police? If the Leftist Liberal Socialist Progressive rioters were only seeking a large-scale confrontation with the Police(government)they would not be engaging in personal vicious attacks on individuals. They would instead stick with property destruction and general mayhem.

No, I think that the Leftist Liberal Socialist Progressives will not settle for just a confrontation with Law-Enforcement. The quickest way to their goal of a Socialist Nation is to turn the citizens on each other, a Civil War. They engage in vicious attacks on individuals because they know that sooner or later those being attacked will reach a point where they will take no more. They may be right on that point. From the videos that I have seen the rioters specialize in sneak attacks. There was one where a lady’s hair was almost set afire. There was another where a lady was sprayed with pepper spray. There was another where a fellow was sucker punched. The examples go on from there. At present Law-Enforcement is not doing much to help curb or stop the violence. At some point if the Police do not act, and act in a decisive manner, the people being attacked will act and it will be decisive and instantaneous. I do realize that these riots, violence and vicious attacks are occurring in Leftist Liberal Socialist Progressive strongholds and have to wonder if action would be taken if the “shoe was on the other foot”, so to speak. I somehow think that it would.

The Leftist Liberal Socialist Progressive protesters and certainly the rioters, of the same ilk claim to be protesting against Fascism, yet they are the ones demonstrating that they are indeed Fascists. They demand First Amendment, free speech protections yet deny those of opposing views their Right to Free Speech. They destroy property, private property as well as public property. These are some of the things done in the name of Fascism, not in opposition to it.

Mob Mentality is prevalent in protests that turn into riots. No one thinks for themselves they just follow the crowd, sort of like Lemmings. They go where they are led, unwavering and unquestioning. The excuse, is that they just get “caught up in the moment”. The reason, is that they have no self-control, no moral compass and most importantly no sense of right and wrong.

The Super Bowl is over and soon there will undoubtedly be a “Victory Parade”. It will start out peaceful enough, but will it end that way? The Champion is from a Leftist Liberal Socialist Progressive stronghold, come to think of it so is the Loser. There will certainly be dedicated fans there to cheer on their “heroes”. There will also be those present looking for the opportunity to turn a celebration in to a riot. If it turn riotous watch the mob mentality take over.

With that many people taking to the streets things could get ugly in a hurry. But then it is just a “Means to their end”.

Ain’t gonna take it no more no more

When the 115th Congress gets back to “work” tomorrow it will not be “business as usual”. The status quo is no more and not just because Donald J. Trump is president. The election of President Trump should have been your “wake-up call”. 94% of you in this Congress were in the last Congress. 100% of you are accountable to the tax payers, when the tax payers finally start holding you accountable will be another great event.

I have heard little if anything from you in regards to your plan for America under a new administration, a republican administration. I have heard much from some of you both republican and democrat on your plans to oppose a president Trump administration. You offer nothing better, you apparently will settle for the role of an obstructionist.

At least the President has a vision for America and what he thinks is good for America, sadly it appears that you do not. It appears that you place you and your party before your country. Perhaps the worst insult to the citizenry is the fact that you make excuses.

Let me remind you of this. Obamacare was forced down the throats of America. Total support from the democrats, and total opposition by the republicans. Thing is nobody even bothered to read the damn bill that became law. The former Speaker even said you have to pass it to find what is in it.

The republican leadership, at that time, said they could do nothing as the minority party, an excuse. The next election cycle gave control of the House of Representatives to the republicans and still nothing. The republican leadership, at that time said they could do little if anything without control of the Senate. You gained control of the Senate, retained control of the House and still nothing, another excuse. The republican leadership, at that time said they cold do more if they had the White House. Okay now you have control of the Senate, the House and the White House. It is now time to sh*t or get off the pot. Do not fail us. Now you have no excuse.

You claim to have no power when you are in the minority. The democrats seem to have all the power in the world when they are the minority. Could it be that you are actually one party?

I have a sneaking feeling that the laws you write do not always apply to you. I suspect that if Obamacare applied equally to you, there might have been more opposition. I also suspect if anyone bothered to read it, it would have had even more opposition. The same goes for Social Security and Medicare, you do participate in those mandatory programs, right?

Therefore and just to keep everything on the up and up it is probably time to amend the Constitution. This is only necessary because you apparently have neither morals, scruples, honor or integrity.

The Amendment should be entitled; Amendment 28-Legislation Clarified.
1. No legislation shall be forwarded to the President without first being read in its entirety by each member voting on such Legislation.
2. Each member will attest to having read the legislation in its entirety by placing his or her signature on the signature page.
3. Each member will attach a statement clarifying his or her support or opposition to the legislation.
4. Amendments or additions to the proposed Legislation shall face the same rules as the original Legislation.
5. Congress shall propose no Legislation that exempts any member of the Government, Elected or Appointed.
6. Congress shall not propose any Legislation that rewards or protects any one group or classification of citizens.
7. If the proposed legislation requires federal funds it must be clear in the legislation, amendment or additions exactly where the money came from and how it is to be funded.
8. No legislation will be submitted if is to be funded with borrowed money.
9. No Legislation will be submitted that is funded by future savings.
10. There will be no subsidized private programs or industries.
11. There shall be no further Legislation, Regulations or Rules at the Federal level that encroach on or abridge the Rights entitled to the States and the Citizens.
12. All haste will be made to repeal all Laws, Regulations and Rules at the Federal level currently in force that are Reserved to the States and the Citizens.

Now we come to a serious matter that does require the attention of the congress critters. While the previous administrations have embarked on a path of nation building, with your support America has been neglected. Much national treasure has been wasted in nations that have made little if any progress America has made no progress. Much treasure has been wasted at the U.N. with almost nothing to show for it. Few if any are better off for the wasted effort and this Republic is worse off. Some of America’s finest have been wasted or maimed in the name of politics, only to be injured again by neglect. This last presidential election from the primaries up to the general election was the people speaking out and someone finally was willing to listen.

Some have said this past election was about the forgotten, the forgotten men and women. While I agree with that, it also made a statement. The statement was “We ain’t gonna take it no more no more. We ain’t gonna be forgotten no more. We ain’t gonna take the insults and injuries no more. No more, damn it.

I would like to remind the congress critters that America is made up of 50 States and 1 District. This is especially important when it comes to funding the infrastructure projects. Do not repeat the failures of the past. There is more to America than the North East, the Upper Mid-West and the West Coast. You would do well to remember the South and the Heart Land.

As a matter of fact it would probably be all the better if the federal government stayed out of the infrastructure projects altogether and let the localities and states along with private enterprise handle it. The reason I say that is this; Why should I in Florida be forced to pay for improvements in another state?(more on this in a later post)

God Bless President Donald J. Trump our 45th President, the First Lady and the First Family. God Bless this Republic.

Lastly I would like to say this. God Bless Dixie and God Bless the Heart Land. The South and the Heart Land may be just what saved this Republic.(more on this in a later post, as well)

Merry Christmas

Many millions across this Republic, and many millions more around the world are celebrating Christmas. Families sat around the Christmas Tree opening gifts, singing Christmas Carols and all of the other traditional things people do on this day. Many went to visit with family and friends and exchange gifts and to wish each a Merry Christmas. Many went to Church, many more stayed home.

Tens of thousands of American service members are celebrating Christmas today, for some it was yesterday. They will, or did, open gifts, sing carols and have a Christmas Meal, there may, or was, even be a Christmas Tree they could sit around. They even visited friends and family to exchange gifts. There is a big difference when you are deployed your friends are your family. Most went to church. There is one thing about attending Church when you are deployed, Church is held where and when the Chaplain finds you. Do keep them in your prayers.

Let us not forget what we are supposed to be celebrating. We are celebrating the birth of the One who came to save the world. We are celebrating the birth of the One who is the Way and the Light. It is by His Grace that we are saved. We are Celebrating the Birth of Jesus, the Son of God and Mary. Happy Birthday Jesus. In your precious name I pray. Amen.

So how much will President Trump and his administration actually be able to accomplish?

Part if not most of that question will be answered before Donald J. Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The new Congress will be sworn on January the 3rd at noon. This will be the Congress that the new president has to contend with. The Senate will be the one confirming nominations to cabinet level posts, or not. The Congress as a whole will be sending legislation forth to become law, or not.

So let’s begin this post with the events of January the Third. The new Congress will be sworn in at Noon. Soon thereafter the new Congress members will attend parties, banquets, pose for photo opportunities and begin shaking hands. They will shake the hands of many, including the group known as the “D.C. Powerbrokers”. The MSM will be on the scene interviewing the new members of Congress. They will certainly enjoy the “attention” that will be bestowed on them.

Now let’s talk about January the Fourth. Aside from beginning the process of moving into their new offices and picking staff to “help” them along in performing their new jobs there will be much happening. Telephone calls and other forms of communications will begin pouring in. They will be contacted by donors, lobbyists and party hacks. Donors will be reminding them of the fact that they have only “arrived” because of their generous “donations”. They lobbyists will be calling to arrange “deals”, tit for tat. Party hacks will be reminding them of the party “agenda”. All while this is going on they will recall the “feeling” they experienced the previous day. The “high” they experienced on January the Third will be one they want repeated for eternity.

And so it begins. January the Fourth begins the new “political campaign season” for the Congress. They will put on their suits and take to the field once more, the democrats in blue and the republicans in red. Though they were just sworn one day prior, they will begin their re-election campaign. They will start calling potential donors as well as those who had supported them in the past. Their days from January the Fourth and onward will be filled with thoughts and actions of and towards a successful re-election bid.

Quick question. Why is it that a Congress critter needs such a large staff? The answer is that they spend so little time doing the job they were sent there to do they have others do it in their stead. Sort of like “farming-out” or “out-sourcing” the job they said they would do. You were sent to govern not out-source your job. If you did not want to do the job you never should have asked for it.

So the real questions are these. Will Congress do what is right for this Republic? Or will Congress keep doing what is right for themselves, their donors, the special interest groups or the lobbyists? Is getting re-elected more important than the continued success of the Republic and Her citizens?

Donald J. Trump will be the President Donald J. Trump because of his vision. A vision of “Making America Great Again”. He did not run on a campaign to make the political establishment great again. He stood the political establishment and all its baggage on its head.

Will the Senate place America first at the confirmation hearings? Or will they place party politics first? I think we will see a lot of votes along party lines. But that is nothing new, now is it?

To answer the opening question and the title. Much of what gets accomplished or does not get accomplished will revolve around what Congress does or does not do. And most importantly what or who Congress represents.
