A “Reality Check” on Politicians and “Those Who Elect Them”

1 An Informed RepublicWe have all heard that voting for the worst of two evils is still evil but the electorate continues this madness.

This voter ideology presents severe dangers to our Liberties, Freedoms and the very existence of our Republic as we know it.

Many of our elected officials have drifted away from the concept of civic duty in “serving the people’s interest” and have become self serving to themselves and their political party.

Many have also failed as a husband, father and a representative of the people and indulged in things they should have avoided.

With politicians it seems to be easy to fall into the trappings of temptations with the perceived power that comes with being elected as a public servant. Some reporters have referred to certain politicians as rock-stars within the political arena which goes right to their heads.  3 Bribe Politicians

The allure of the big money through (Campaign Donations) being thrown at these politicians by the many lobbyist and special interest are a huge part of the problem but the lack of morality and principles of these legislators falls directly on them! 

If we as a people are to change the direction of our state and country we must change the way we cast our vote for the current ideology of casting our votes for the worst of two evils will be our own downfall and the downfall of our state and country! There are other options besides the two major political parties.

We the People are in need of a viable alternative to the two major political parties. The Constitution Party is that option. Here in Michigan the Constitution Party http://www.constitutionparty.com/ has an affiliate (USTMP) http://www.ustpm.org/about.html

Rebranding the GOP

So you think your voting for a Republican? Better check the candidate your casting your vote for because if you don’t you may not get what you think! This statement says it all. Amber McCann, spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe said:

“It’s not a shock to see large contributions from “Unions” like the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Operating Engineers Local 324, and the Regional Council of Carpenters to the Democrats.” Oh Really?

Amber McCann actually cut her teeth in politics in former Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm’s administration.  “When I was interviewing for Senator Richardville’s press secretary position they asked me how I knew I was a Republican, McCann recalls. And she said, “My dad told me that growing up.” My dad is a guy that likes to watch Fox News.
