Today, America faces $19 trillion in national debt. It faces 48 million Americans subsisting on food stamps. Another 10 million Americans cannot obtain jobs. An almost unbelievable 73 percent of African-American children arrived without a responsible father and a single mother living on welfare. Americans pay for a war lasting 14 years in Afghanistan. American schools graduate functionally illiterate teens by the millions.
Americans owe China $1.3 trillion in trade deficits caused by Congress facilitating “free trade” that strangles American manufacturing. American roads and bridges along with infrastructure degrade to third world status.
Do you ever wonder why our country faces so many problems without the members of Congress doing anything to solve them?
Answer: corruption becomes a mechanism by which entrenched politicians operate. It fills their bank accounts, adds to their power and allows them to pretend they serve the American taxpayer.
Corrupt career politicians work continuously to cheat, lie and undermine the American people. The longer they serve, the more inept, corrupt and brash they become.
Not in any particular order:
U.S. Senator John McCain continues to serve in Congress for the citizens of Arizona for the past 30 years. He signed the 1986 Immigration Amnesty that allowed 4.3 million illegal aliens to gain citizenship. He promised it would never happen again. Twenty nine years later, we suffer from and pay for endless robberies, killings, drunken driving, ruined schools, anchor babies and medical care for 20 to 31 million illegal aliens and their families. McCain did nothing to stop the invasion. He voted to fund the bogus Iraq War, which the Military Industrial Complex along with bankers, created out of thin air. He watched Arizona’s borders become overrun with illegal migrants to the point that the governor called for a federal “state of emergency” to stop them.
With over 240 “sanctuary cities” harboring illegal aliens against ICE officers, we American citizens can be killed while criminal aliens enjoy sanctuary. Kate Steinle died because San Francisco’s mayor and California’s two U.S. Senators Feinstein and Boxer support all illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.
Let’s examine U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein of California. Both support illegal immigration. Both support sanctuary cities. Both support the war in Afghanistan for the past 14 years with NO results of stopping terrorism. Their state houses 3 to 4 million illegal aliens wreaking havoc in California’s schools, prisons, hospitals and communities. Gangs, drugs and killings grow as their numbers grow.
What do Boxer and Feinstein do? Answer: nothing for the past 20 years.
Let’s go to New York with U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. He voted for “free trade” that created our $1.3 trillion debt with China. He supported off-shoring, in-sourcing and outsourcing of American jobs that created 10 million jobless Americans. He voted against mandating controls on illegal aliens which gave the 19 Muslim hijackers driver’s licenses that allowed them to train and walk onto our planes to create 9/11.
How about U.S. Senator Carl Levin of Michigan? He’s lived his whole life in the nation’s senate chambers. He wouldn’t know an average American from a hole in the ground. Levin remains in the senate as a “forever” politician that watched Americans pay for 400,000 illegal alien anchor babies for the past 20 to 30 years—and did nothing.
Look at Nevada’s U.S. Senator Harry Reid. He’s implicated in swindling people in land deals. He’s so old and so out of touch, he cannot see what’s happening to our country from his lofty Washington office. Still, he serves for 30 years.
Utah’s U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch continues for the past 38 years to pretty much do nothing that benefits the people of Utah or the American people. His state faces enormous problems from illegal aliens sucking off welfare, education and medical care.
House of Representatives Mitch McConnell operates as if Americans don’t matter and he never stands up for any working man or woman. Thirty years of utter and outright uselessness.
Ms. Barbara Mikulski from Maryland continues serving for the past 38 years, but hasn’t done anything, said anything or stood up for anything that benefits the American people.
After Franklin Delano Roosevelt continued his reign until his death in his fourth term of the presidency through WWII, that Congress wisely created a total of 8 years, term limited, for the presidency saying, “To much power for too long, is a threat to America’s freedom.”
Notice that all those career corrupt politicians continue to do nothing to benefit the American people—because if they took action—we wouldn’t be in the mess we face today.
Notice that most of them enjoy endless perks, many become millionaires from insider trading on defense projects, fantastic homes, rich automobiles, sycophants at work and home, and they enjoy endless status.
They remain out of touch with the American people. They do nothing for the American worker. They line the pockets of the bankers, corporations, munitions people, hotel and restaurant companies and the Military Industrial Complex.
It’s time for a two 4 year term, 8-year limit on all public servants in our U.S. Congress. Otherwise, we face more insidious corruption from the likes of all those mentioned in this column.
In the end, we lose our country spiraling down into a third world toilet.

Excellent article Frosty! However, you left out the most important part of this problem with only a slight mention of the Bankers. Let me give you an example of how serious this omission is. Let’s take Monsanto as an example. They are killing people by the thousands and enjoy immunity from prosecution. Now let’s assume someone with enough money to waste on attorneys makes a big slash in the (News?) blaming all of the employees for this atrocity, which includes the executives. The executives get fired and business as usual is the end results. I think that is a fair example for comparison. Now apply this example to our (so-called) politicians. Blaming them is as useless as blaming and replacing Monsanto’s executives, because the real culprits have been left out of the scenario. The real question is, who controls the company’s executives? Or, who controls the stock-holders of the company? The journey does not end at the first cross-road, so keep going until you find out WHO CONTROLS EVERYTHING, and HOW DO THEY GET AWAY WITH IT? Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher did the research and have all the answers to this problem clearly elucidated in their easy to read 276 page book, You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) available at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1491279184/ref=cm_cr_asin_lnk
Let me repeat myself, nothing will change on earth until the International Banking Cartel is eliminated from having a choke-hold on nearly every government on earth. WE ALL NEED TO FOCUS ON FINDING A WAY TO PUT THESE HORRENDOUS MURDERS IN THEIR GRAVES AND DEMAND REAL MONEY GLOBALLY. THERE IS NO INTELLIGENT JUSTIFICATION FOR MONEY HAVING CHANGING VALUES AND THE MANIPULATION OF MONEY IS HOW THE BANKERS ROSE TO POWER. The quantity and price of manufactured articles may vary from supply and demand, but the value of money should be a constant forever. And don’t let the egg-head economist confuse you with their linguistic obfuscations.
