Ted Cruz making another delivery.
Oh goody....It's an election year again. I believe the politicians have found their way in front of every single TV camera in the state. Every other commercial here in Texas shows one politician or another trying to "out Cruz" Ted Cruz.
"Oh yeah? You want to deport all them dang 'illegals'? Well, I wanna whack 'em on the kneecaps and let 'em crawl back."
"You wuss. I wanna cut off all their limbs, then let 'em flop back home." *snort, snort*
"Taxes are too high. Them kids don't need 12 grades of schoolin'."
"I fought for a balanced budget when I was a Legislature-er." (Note: A balanced budget is required by our state constitution.)
"Vote for me for Ag Commissioner and I'll fight Obama Care!*
"Vote for me for Juvenile Court #6 Judge and I'll fight Obama Care!"
"Vote for me for Sophomore Class Historian and I'll fight Obama Care!"
If there is a more despicable life form than politicians I'd hate to see it.
....said one politician to another.
Some facts: We need "illegals". More specifically we need the WORK performed by illegals. Without them restaurants couldn't function, potholes wouldn't get filled, and houses wouldn't get built. It's a long list of things they do. We need to somehow fairly bring them into the system.
It isn't that taxes are too high. It's just that the money is spent in the wrong places. We rightfully feel short changed. Where we spend taxpayer dollars is laughable. (Well, not really. It's sad. Criminal, actually.)
Obama Care, or blanket health care....call it what you want....isn't going away. Too many people now have insurance who before were excluded due to "pre-existing conditions", or now have coverage again after their exorbitant bills for serious illnesses maxed out their old policies. And now politicians are going to take that away from them? And still expect to get their votes? Not gonna happen.
The old system wasn't just folded up neatly and placed in the closet like an old set of towels, ready to be brought out again later if needed. It has already been hauled off in the garbage truck and is now 20' deep in the landfill. Bye-bye.
Like it or not, we need to find a way to make health care work. If you don't like Obama Care, fine. Then show me something better. I mean a detailed plan. Show me. Fix it. Just saying "NO" doesn't fix anything.
All our established politicians want is to stay on the privileged ladder. All the up-and-coming politicians want is to get on the privileged ladder. Us peons are just here to give them something to stand on.
You don't have to agree with me out loud. Just think about it.
