We see it every day in the news. Another law passed restricting our rights. We see even more blatant infringements on our personal liberties and government scandal after scandal. There will come a time when TV is no longer able to mollify the people. They will eventually come to the conclusion that our government has lost its way.
Full time career politicians are only out for two things, to line their pockets with more money and to increase their personal power so they can accomplish the first faster and easier. They don’t listen to the facts on any issue. They don’t listen to the people that elected them to represent them. Hell, the Democrats are so sickening that they outright lie during their campaigns about everything. Bold faced, caught in the act, lies; and nothing happens. There used to be a time they would be arrested, or worse (?), lynched by the people that put them there.
I wish Blacks would learn their History and see the Democratic Party for what it truly is, just a money grabbing bigoted group of people abusing the false hatred of Black American’s and disillusioned White Americans for their gain. I am sickened by what I see. Republicans are almost as bad as the Democrats these days and yet does it matter? No. Because our system has been shaped into a two party system, we no longer even have a choice. We are forced to pick from the least of two evils.
There used to be a time when the people put pressure on reluctant people to run for office (Modern Example, Dr. Ben Carson). Our Political system is now filled with people that stay in political office their entire adult lives. How can that be healthy? It isn’t, but there are so many self-absorbed people that don’t even bother to vote, much less educate themselves on the people they are voting for. Then they complain why things happen and why they no longer have rights. They wonder why political people as ignorant as those like Sheila Jackson Lee get into office.
How can we (the people) elect bigoted individuals like Sheila Jackson Lee from Texas? This lady is an idiot. She’s also a racist and she’s in public office! She’s even a senior member of the Foreign Affairs Office!
Do you believe people like Sheila Jackson Lee should be allowed to serve in our government?
- No, there is no place in government for bigoted / racist people. (100%, 4 Votes)
- Yes, if the people put them in office then for good or bad they can serve. (0%, 0 Votes)

Do me a favor, look her up and do a little research. That’s my task I ask of you. If you’re reading my page you are smarter than the average person already. I don’t want it to sound like I am assigning work, but if you’re interested, then do some research on her. Listen to some of the videos and speeches and interviews and tell me that this woman isn’t a vile racist individual. Think of how apathetic the people must be to have elected her into office and then continued to elect her into office, in Texas no less, over and over again. That tells you that there is something wrong with the people in this country, which they simply seem to no longer care.
What is going to be the trigger that sets people off? Instead of an educated reform by the people, they will sit and watch TV until a time comes when a collective majority realizes they can no longer do anything. That their rights have been stripped and they will explode like they do in South America.
The Tea Party attempted to have an educated reform, but the spin masters in DC pretty much killed that movement and don’t think otherwise; that movement was shot down by both parties. The established Republican Party disliked it just as much as the Democratic Party did and they killed it by calling the people racists.
A party movement that was created because they were tired of the taxes and the restrictions on business and they were labeled racists! Absolutely amazing and it worked!
It’s time for people to start to research their candidates. I know it’s work, but don’t listen to any political ad or speech, they are all lies. Just look to Obama for an example. Everything he says is a lie and yet he got elected, twice. Search their political records and see how they voted, what they voted for. Follow their money. See what they gave money to and see if it follows their rhetoric.
Want to see what someone has donated to for political parties? Go to Follow the Money. You just punch in a candidate’s name and you can see all the publicly listed funds they have donated. For example, Sheila Jackson Lee, our brain trust that we have used as an example of what is wrong with government these days and the people that voted someone like her in clearly falls in the Democratic Party realm, just from her donations alone.

Sheila doesn’t donate much (most Democrats don’t, greed drives most of them), but what she does goes 100% to democratic causes, no surprises there.
This site is great when you want to see the political leanings of Judges, for example State Supreme Court Judges. Since their political party is not displayed on ballots, because they are supposed to be party neutral in their rulings, with the way our government is now, even they are no longer neutral and they will vote according to their political leanings. This allows you to see what money they have donated to and what party they will rule in favor of.
Here are some sites to help you get educated on public figures:
There are many more, but these can help you do everything from following the money public candidates donate and spend to their voting record.
Voting records can be some of the best, or worse, date you can get to see how a political figure fall on the political spectrum. It can also help you determine if an candidate is a free thinker or a stood to their party.
Let’s take a look at Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico. Let’s see a snippet of his voting record and see how far he is from the center (which is what the majority of Americans are politically):
Tom Udall on Gun Control
Tom Udall on Health Care
Get out and educate, vote to protect this Republic before we lose it to people like Tom Udall. Tom Udall has a 94% Rubber Stamp voting record for Obama. The man has 6% free will. These are not the type of people you want leading the country. Especially when they have a 94% voting record on policies that do more harm than good to this country.
