Harry Reid (D-NV) is finally telling the truth. At least as he sees it. Maybe more Democrats should speak up, as Harry did recently in Sparks, NV, and tell the people exactly why they should be re-elected / elected to office. Then the American public will have the stark reality that is today's Washington political machine thrust into the light of day.
Speaking before his constituency, Reid told people that he felt it was his "constitutional duty" to spend, spend, spend. He said that the money flowing to the state was due to his "powerful position" in the Senate. In other words, he is too big to fail.
This is so pervasive as an attitude of those in power, all the way up to the President, who believes that he just didn't "explain things" properly to the American people. They all think we are stupid and just don't understand all the "good" they are doing for us. It is something that many Americans are finally coming to realize.
And now Reid has actually come out and told people that he should be re-elected because he is responsible for bringing all the bailout money and earmarks into the state, that he is too big to fail and that Nevada (and America) need him to keeping spending lots of money, put us deeper and deeper into debt and expand government. He took his jab at his opponent with the "constitutionally duty" comment, since Angle believes we should reduce the size of the Federal government and only let them have the powers enumerated by the Constitution.
Reid shows his ignorance of both the Constitution and the American people.
On the other hand, Sharon Angle, who is climbing rapidly in the polls against Reid, has many fiscally conservative ideas for government. Ideas that are in keeping with an American public who find themselves having to tighten their collective belts and wallets during theseharsh economic times. She actually makes sense.
It is high time for politicians like Reid, who think they have a "constitutional duty" to be compelte jackasses and irresponsible with the power we gave them in the first place, to find their way in the world without the public dole. It is time for Reid, and all like him, to find new jobs.
Maybe if they are among the unemployed, they might think twice about what they have been trying to do to this country.
But then again, not only do his kind never learn, they will just tap into their own bank accounts from all the graft (oops, donations) they have accrued over the years.
Agree with me that Nevada needs Sharon Angle and America needs to dump "Prince" Harry Reid (and all the politicians in Washington who have lost touch with this country and ideas it was built upon). Or you can disagree and beleive that we just have to have government holding our hands, telling us what doctors to see and when to pee. Either way, it makes no difference to me. If I got you to just think for yourselves, then I have done my job. But hey, this is just me, Thinking Out Loud.
Have a great day.
