The huge difference between the members of our elected and deep state government and the lives of the people who pay them.
Never in the history of this nation has the general population lived a lifestyle that is so remote as compared to the rather luxurious and secure lifestyles of our elected representatives. Add the deep state as a sub class of these privileged few.
The average American is now scrimping and struggling to pay their heat bills, gas bills and the increased food and other costs that we are now seeing. Meanwhile the politicians are all enjoying the best healthcare, the best security and massive expense accounts that allow them to live lives we can only dream of. Worse yet, they make decisions that are harming the financial futures of their taxpaying constituencies and yet these elites feel none of what the average American does.
As I stated at the outset, this division between those in power and those who must follow the rules these elites make is wider than it has ever been. The average pay for politicians and the government employees now exceeds the private sector in all areas. Used to be a person traded the higher wages from the private sector for the security of a government job. Now, the government job is one of the most sought after positions a person seeking employment can get.
This is not the way our government was supposed to be.
How can I trust an elected official who has never held a real job
I am aware of many politicians in DC and other positions who have never had a job in the real world. They have never met a budget or made a payroll. They have not had quotas and performance reviews and are able to wield the power of their positions to ensure they are re-elected regardless of the lack of performance on their parts. Worse yet, these elected individuals look down their noses at the average citizen as if they are unimportant in the scheme of things. These unproductive individuals could not hold an entry level job in the real world and even so, these elites get to decide how we, in the trenches, must live our lives. They manipulate the industries and media to ensure that they will continue to be held blameless for their lack of concerns for the real people of this country. These elites pick and choose winners and losers without any blow-back upon them for those who are discriminated against by their policies. These are the immoral actions of people who do not understand what it takes to honestly make a living. It is high time that this changes.
How can someone who lives in the ‘bubble’ have any inkling of what my life is like
We see the likes of AOC preaching Eco-socialism and she has never lived in the real world. AOC grew up in the richest part of New York State in a well to do family who put her through an expensive Boston college so she has not ever experienced want or need as compared to the average New York resident. She, and many other representatives in Congress, live in this bubble existence that does not mirror real life in any way. Anyone who has grown up and moved into politics shortly after graduating college have not co-existed in the same society that the average American lives in. These privileged people live in what I call the ‘Bubble’ which insulates them from the ‘Walmart people’ that many of these elites sneer at as being unworthy of their attentions. The only time they acknowledge the existence of the mere masses is when election time comes and they want to be re-elected back into their isolated bubble existence. We need people in these positions of authority who understand INTIMATELY the lives of the people they are representing. All we get now is lip service from people who would not be caught dead spending time in our communities outside of election campaigns. This must change.
The difference between government dollars and my dollars
When I spend a dollar I know where it came from, how many I had before spending and how long I must make it last until I get paid again. Further, I know also that there is a LIMITED AMOUNT of MONEY available to me and I have to make serious decisions about my budget and what I choose to do. These politicians and deep state employees have no understanding of having a limited budget. They live in the land of plenty where they can either print more money or at the local level, raise taxes to whatever they need to be to cover the costs of their salaries as well as their pet projects that they have created with their authority. I know of few people who live this way and the only ones I can think of are the wealthy rich business types who, by the way, are the people these politicians hobnob with socially. Money to the elites has an entirely different meaning as compared to those of us in the trenches. This lack of respect for the pocket book of the citizen is rampant in government and the attitudes of these elites is patronizing at best and abusive at worst. Until we have citizens in these positions of power who intimately understand the implications of their actions we will NEVER BE PROPERLY REPRESENTED in the halls of our elected bodies. This must change.
How uncontrolled criminals are ruining our society
We see the elites have made the decision to release criminals back into society after they are arrested with little or no bail and definitely no assurances to the public that they will not commit any further crimes. Worse yet, when they do get arrested again, instead of putting them in jail, they are released on little or no bail to continue to wreak havoc in our communities.
Adding to the problem is the fact that if a citizen chooses to defend themselves against a criminal who is bent on either stealing their property or in harming them, these victims are arrested and are held while the criminal is set free.
Murder rates in our major cities are off the charts and well over previous years and this is only getting worse. Petty crimes are up hundreds of percents. Taxpaying citizens are left paying the price for the crime and mourning the deaths of the innocents. It is obvious that not controlling criminals is tearing our society apart. There is no logical reason to do this other than pandering on the parts of the elite politicians who are more concerned about re-election than they are the safety in their local communities. This is a true definition of an insane act on our politician’s parts and it is time this ended. These elites do not live in our communities. They have private security that protects them from the violent actions of the criminals they have released into our midst after they have already committed serious crimes. It is time this ends.
I don’t want to be governed by people who act ‘for my own good’ and contrary to my values and desires
I saw a video of Al Gore lecturing us on global warming today and it reminded me of the fact that the hypocrisy of people like Gore and the rest of the elite politicians is not lost on me. I can see the ‘Do as I say, not as I do’ attitude throughout the policies and agendas of these people. They think they are smarter and better than we are to such an extent that they feel free to cripple our economy for the sake of a scientific theory that is easily refuted but yet, these ‘deniers’ are silenced by the government; ‘all for the good of society’.
I have always had a suspicion of those in power who act as if they are elected to make decisions for me instead of representing my choices and opinions. People like this live in a world of self importance and egotism that justify their flaunting the very rules they demand we obey. These people are so isolated and remote from the reality of the world they are creating and yet, they don’t care that this is the case. Further, these elites are adopting an international agenda as policy in our nation despite the fact that the most populous nations in the world are exempt from obeying these regulations.
I have come to the end of my willingness to comply with the edicts of people who do not share the same lifestyle I do. It is high time this changes.
In light of the increasing distance between the governing elite and the governed, a revolt is almost impossible to avoid
What these political elites do not realize is that the people can see the facts for what they are and can see that the deplorable, Bible and Gun loving, Walmart people are ignored and in the process these elites are sowing the seeds of insurrection and revolution on an epic scale.
Keep in mind, if the socialists win and take over all of these bloated elites who live these lush and lavish lifestyles will end up in the gulag or like the French Revolution, the guillotine. They think they are insulated from the effects of socialism taking over and they are so wrong. They will be made examples of and will see their luxury worlds come crashing down, sooner or later. Even if socialism is held at bay, the true patriot will, when the time comes, remove the despots from office as the policies of these people have brought misery and ruin upon the people they were sent to represent.
What the elites do not respect is that there is a limit to the patience of the people and we will not allow government to disarm us in order to control us. All this will take to be set in motion is an act of violence against the people that is so obviously over the top and unwarranted that there will be push back. When this happens it will not be sit ins and protests. It will not be looting and burning of city blocks. It will be focused and direct towards the origins of the tyranny that our government has become and woe be it to any who resist.
America was founded by 1/3rd of the nation standing up to stop the actions of a monarchical regime that did not respect the rights of the citizens they governed. There is easily an equal percentage of Americans who are as fed up now, as our forebears were in 1776. All it took then was a new tax policy levied on the colonies. All it will take now is a similar overreach on the part of those who reside in the bubble of DC and the results will be the same. You cannot discount the spirits of 120 Million Americans and expect to remain in office and safe from being cast out in the street.
Lastly, I will not go quietly into the good night. No, I/We will not agree nor comply with your latest edicts a.k.a. You have not earned my respect with how you are doing your job
I speak for myself in anything I write. I also am well aware of the fact that I am not alone in how I feel regarding these matters. I am unwilling to submit to the overreach of authority just as millions of other Americans agree with me on that matter. We are not going away. We are not going to surrender our arms or stop speaking out against the tyranny of non-representative government. This situation is one that I seriously doubt we can vote our way out of.
Elections can replace individuals but the system of corruption and influence peddling will remain in place all the while implementing its plans to further control and impoverish society. I can offer that term limits would be a start but the issue of the deeply vested bureaucratic system that operates without our approval will not be so easily defeated or weakened sufficiently to return us to a nation that has as its representatives people who answer to their fellow citizens.
What we are seeing in our Congress today is wrong and is so far from the nation our founders envisioned. We are being ruled instead of represented. We are being compelled to follow policy agendas we do not agree with by people who do not answer to us in any meaningful way. We are seeing policy changes throughout our government that disagree with the ethos of our society all of these changes designed to appease small special interest groups who are tiny fractions of our society. It is one thing to be tolerant of those who are different. It is quite another to advocate for the different lifestyles actively in government itself. This is idiotic and will lead to the destruction of our law enforcement and military in due time.
I can see these things for what they are. The actions to appease special interests and not the actions of a government dedicated to representing the people and their values and beliefs.
I am not going to ignore or otherwise forget that these things are going on. I can’t because they are being rammed down my throat by the media who are representing the elites in power.
This cannot go on. There are more people who are better prepared for a time of conflict than there are those who can only look to government for the things they need and for safety. The longer they keep ruling as an elite subset of our society, the worse it will be when the time of upheaval comes.
I offer all of this as a statement to clarify where I stand and how I view the actions of my elected and bureaucratic representatives. I am sure I am not alone.
Be vigilant and always prepared. I am sure that when the time comes things will move pretty fast.
