PUBLIC FORUM: Voters need to think independently; Guardian Angels says thank you

Voters need to think independently

The government is projected to spend $1.6 trillion more than it takes in, in taxes this year. In business, that would be called “losing money” instead of “making a profit.” If any organization keeps losing money, the only way it can keep spending is to borrow money.

The government has not been willing or able to stop losing money, so they keep raising the debt ceiling instead. President Obama has failed us as Americans with his out-of-control spending and no-budget attitude.

Just like the Roman Empire, the American Empire now is debasing its money, impoverishing its people, and having trouble paying its “legions.” Most government agencies primary concern now is to spend the remainder of their fiscal year budget instead of relinquishing the unused funds to help save government money. This so-called “use it or lose it” culture promotes wasteful spending and an overall lack of concern for fiscal responsibility. Are Americans clueless to just how much money its federal government wastes in one fiscal year?

In order for our country to make a 360-degree turn and start succeeding again, the American voters need to stop voting with the easy push of a one-party button. It would be breath-taking to see the working class start saying they’re now an independent. I am no longer standing to be a Republican or Democrat — sick and tired of their blame game!

The hardest thing an American voter can do is to think for themselves, investigating whom they are voting for! The whole foundation of the America government was for people to serve and get out, not to make a career out of it. The career lawyers have been running this country long enough, we need smart businessmen people who are willing to take a stand and stop the wasted spending of our tax money!
