The Democrats are in!

So here we go. I have mixed emotions about this. In then end I worry it will not make much deference. End the end the people that we have in charge of the Democrats are the some old people that have been in charge of the Democrats. Not the new younger Democrats. So I don’t know if they are really going to be able to do anything.

I just don’t think that the old Democrats or anyone that has been in politics for more than a 5 or 6 years can represent the people. The are not part of the people anymore. To easy it seems to believe there causes are the peoples causes.

And as long as we have a system that allows people to stay in power and gives them more power (seniority) the longer they are in there. And those people have the power to decided or help to decided who gets $$ for running for seats in the party. We will not get real change.

And we need change.

Not the kind of changes that rising taxes or emigration reform will do. (and we do need both.)

What we need to change is how people can buy laws. Buy who gets investigated. Buy power. Buy who gets government contracts and can get away with braking the law.

I am under a firm believe now that the government had misused our trust. And because they have nothing that they do or fund, even the military, can be kept secret. There is nothing that the government dose that should be above the publics scrutiny. There should be NO presidential privilege. At least not till we find time again when we can trust the government again.

At one point we may have had a government we could trust. But when we started letting the government keep such secrets on the ‘need’ for national security and the like. We started letting the government get out of our control.

Tell me what could there be that our government could hide from us for our own good?

I can see military actions.

But what would be wrong with us knowing what weapons we had? They are our weapons after all. We pay for them! What is wrong with other knowing how powerful we are, if we are? And if others know we can kick there but with out loosing a man then I think it is less likely they will come after us. Sure they might try to get weapons or defiance items to counter ours. Well that is just a good reason for us to keep trying! Keep pushing for more.

What dills could our government be making with power companies that the people should not know about or agreements with other countries that should not be none to all. After all it is not them that are making the agreements. It is us. The people. If they are doing things on our behave. Then we should have the right to know about it.

The only reason to keep it from us is to keep themselves in power. Knowledge is power after all. The other reason of course is they know the people would not approve of how the $$ is being spend. Sure the government has to do things that are not popular. But they don’t have the right to do it in the dark. They get paid will to be the hang man. We should be wise enough to know that is what we are paying them for.

Well that is all I have to say now. I hope things are good with the Dems in.
