It's Time for a Real Change
by Dicci Brignoni
Congress works the benefit of ALL the people, not just the special interest of a few.
It's time to change the system, and that is something Obama can do. It's through his transparency policies is that we know about all the crooked dealing going on in Washington, like insider trading; something that has always been against the law yet we needed to pass a law to tell congress that it includes them to. How many presidents before Obama knew about this and did nothing?
It's time for the people to put some changes to a vote, starting with changing Congress and all the money they make; the people are tired of the games politicians play at our expense.
If things do not change soon, the people will continue to revolt, it's our right, it's our money, it's our justice.

Thanks for joining our conversation.
I agree with your first sentence and a half, and then my head wants to explode.
Transparency?? Are you kidding?
Have you heard of a little debacle called Fast and Furious?? The Obama administration refusing to provide documents subpoenaed by Congress? Obummer claiming he knew nothing about it, and then invoking Executive Privilege to justify the refusal to provide the documents? Executive Privilege can only be claimed by the Executive (the President), so by claiming Executive Privilege, he's necessarily admitting to knowledge of the documents.
Then I agree with you again: Obama has proved he can change the system. But he's rapidly changing our democratic
republic into a socialist state; something that our Founding Fathers would not even recognize as the America they created, which took pride in and encouraged individual initiative and accomplishment.
Did you hear your president the other day telling American businessmen that if their business was successful, they couldn't take credit for it; it was the government that allowed them to be successful? On the contrary, the ones who are successful are successful in spite of the government bureaucracy.
Every socialist system has ultimately failed, because when the producers are no longer rewarded for their initiative and their success by enjoying the fruits of their own labor, and instead have their production given to others who produced nothing, they will eventually stop producing and wait for someone else's wealth to be "shared" with them. But there will be nothing to share, because there are suddenly no producers --- everyone is waiting for his/her handout from the government.
I definitely agree with your last paragraph, though. It is time to make some sweeping changes in DC, starting with the White House.
Anyone who has beeen in Congress for more than six years needs to be replaced with some fresh blood and hopefully, some fresh ideas. We need to put an end to the concept of a "career politician."
Congress was supposed to be made up of regular citizens, not some elite "ruling class," which is what it has turned into.
I say, I'll keep the Constitution, my guns and my money; you keep the change!
