    The United State has a represntative form of government. That means that we elect individuals to act on behalf of those who elect them. Once elected however, there is no guarantee that they will actually do so. The duly elected reprentatives can vote any way they like. This is the present situation in which most Americans disagree with the way the Congress is voting.

    In the last presidential election, the people voted in a radical leftist for president. The media had so whipped up the electorate against the previos adminisration that all vestiges of it, including including the Congress were swept from office and replaced with left-wing activists.

    Now the leftists are enacting their agenda and the American people don't like it. Well, too bad! The Tea Parties, Townhall Meetings and the blogs clearly show that a majority of the people don't want what the Congress is dishing out. This is meaningless. The elected officials are doing what THEY want and what they think they were elected to do.

    So the people have had a change of heart. Tough! Too late! Elections have consequences and now everyone must pay the price. This is the fallacy of voting in anger - the country reaps the whirlwind.

    In 2010 there will be another opportunity for the voters to show their pleasure/displeasure with their represbntatives. They can vote out those whose actions have disappointed them. They can elect new representatives and hope that they will vote the way the voters want. BUT there are no guarantees.

    The fact that the mood in the country has changed since the last election a scant 12 months ago in reality means little if anything. This Congress will do things which the people don't want and which the future Congresses may not be able to reverse. The future of America is uncertain at best. The best thing the people can do is to become/remin informed and to take every opportunity to express themselves to their representatives as well as their communities. Get active and take back your country. Don't let Acorn or the unions or the ACLU or the media take it from you.

    God Bless America! (but be deserving of the blessing)
