So the Super Committee has failed, but who thought it would succeed?
Defective from its very conception, the Super Committee concept allowed Congress to ignore basic constitutional obligations and the principles of governance created by our founders. And so it failed both us and our Constitution.
When Congress compromises on principle, as it usually does, the result is a bad idea that only serves the political expediency of the Incumbent Party inside the Beltway.
In this case, the bad idea was the Super Committee itself, whose inevitable failure was designed to supply campaign fodder for both parties to use against each other in the 2012 election.
So now the usual pattern reappears. A politicians first response to failure is to point the finger and affix blame. This was not a conspiracy. Conspiracies are based on plots or illegal acts. An initiative that conforms to expected patterns, like the Super Committee, must be considered a deliberate act. What a perfect stage from which to bloviate if you are a career politician in jeopardy of losing your bid for re-election! The pattern continues.
In all of this, We the People become impotent only if we fail to use our rightful remedy; to exercise our responsibility and to elect statesmen instead of politicians to represent our interests in Washington DC.
Statesmen go to Washington for a limited term to do their civic duty and protect our constitutional rights. The elected blowhards who hyped the Super Committee are now engaged in the blame game, and will soon begin grandstanding to confuse their base. They must be replaced and sent home.
The Super Committee is just one of many cancers that have metastasized in Washington DC. The remedy is to elect patriots and statesmen who will demand adherence to the prescribed constitutional limits on the size, scope, and power of the federal government.
Dr. Dan has the remedy, and Dr. Dan is a statesman.
A vote for Dr. Dan is a vote for limited constitutional government, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty.
It did exactly what it was supposed to do. Make everyone forget they raised the debt ceiling by trillions.
It was set up to fail form the beginning. I talked to the cousin of Senator Toomey, I sold him some auto parts, and he said the same thing.
Sen. John McCain, Fox News Sunday, 7/7/11.
The "experienced" people. Yeah.
He hit another home run, didn't he?
John, if you weren't a member of that group you would see, like the rest of us do, that the most experienced people in congress ARE THE PROBLEM!
And not a one is an economist
