I am not okay with it! I am P-I-S-S-E-D as H-E-L-L! I am writting a letter to Congress and I suggest that every American citizen do the same. And this is what I am going to write: To the Elite in Washington D.C. Republican's/Democrat's I am a father of two kids. I have a $30,000 job that just barely gets me by. Two years ago I went through a divorce that should never had happen. Why? Because it was over money and the economy. Could not afford the home, the car, the cost of living was killing us. My ex wife worked two jobs and I worked one. Together we made $65,000 a year. But with three kids (one was her's and two ours) it didn't go far. We faught and faught over paying the bills and having money to go on. We couldn't take it! There was no one there to bail us out! And now it seems that it is starting all over again. I have a car payment, insurance, child support payments, christmas gifts, birthday gifts, rent, and the enconomy is still bad! I barely get by. I ask you now as an lower income American, Who's going to bail me out? Who is going to pay my car loan? Who is going to pay my child support? Who is going to pay my credit card that is almost maxed out because I can't afford gas or food? Who is going to take care of my children? Yet you fat cats sit in those plush chairs and skeem on ways to get elected or re-elected and to make the other party look bad! And you have the gall to bail out rich businesses that even a common American knows is going under and can't be saved! But you turn a nose up on me. A common American with a real dream. A dream to serve his country, to have pride for it's country and it's leaders! I say hog wash! I say it's time to impeach the lot of you for crimes against the people of these United States of America, better yet I think we need to take another look at the Declaration of Independance:
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. — The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
What have you people become to let greed to fill your pockets while your fellow American's do without? You send our money to other countries when we could use it here, you bail out your buddies who grease your palms when you should be greasing your fellow American's palms. You take our money and use it for crap we wouldn't even approve of when you should be trying to save our money for the important issues. I have lost my pride for you, for your parties, and for your causes, but never for my country! God Bless America!
