Fed Up

 

The movement in the blogosphere lately is thankfully a trend toward paring back federal spending, with Porkbusters going full, ahem, "boar." Hopefully the Republicans are feeling the heat from us constituents. There is certainly noise enough out there to attract attention.

But let's say that those of us in the "good government is small government" category stay home at the 2006 elections and Democrats win big. What did we just vote in? Stereotypically, spenders as well, just of a different stripe.

I say a pox on both their houses. I'm not sure that the libertarian party can be taken seriously, but holy cow the time is ripe for the creation and a serious alternative.

I'm with you. Republicans have typically been for small government, but now that we've been in power so long....

I think there should be term limits on all elected positions, not just the presidency. Oh sure, some will whine that you need experience in the halls of power. My response is "Rubbish!" The only reason you need experience now is because of all the BS put there to keep incumbents in office. I think it would be a good thing to make the jobs of paid lobbiers harder. Maybe elected officials will start listening to their constituents again.
