Who Cares What the Public Says?
This is a question that can be posed about US politics almost all the time. For years, the people at large in the US have had their heads screwed on straight about any number of subjects. Far more then the knuckleheads in Washington. A case in point is gun control. Check these numbers out.
So it's no surprise that the people--and this is a government of, by, and for the people, remember--are far, far ahead of our numbskull politicians who are about to submerse the country in an economic disaster of unfathomable proportions. According to a recent web article on First Read from NBC, here's a report on what the people favor doing about this (artificially manufactured) debt crisis. Although I certainly don't agree with people on a number of these things, it's very interesting that our citizenry doesn't have any problem tapping wealthy beneficiaries of the American system for more cash to help keep that system running. But under the political madness we operate under today, that idea is almost heresy. Interesting, no?
