Quote:An anonymous congressman has dropped a bombshell election-year book that confirms why Americans hate their national government and have rallied to anti-establishment presidential candidates like Donald Trump.
Quote:“Like most of my colleagues, I promise my constituents a lot of stuff I can never deliver,” he admits. “But what the hell? It makes them happy hearing it . . . My main job is to keep my job.”
Quote:“We spend money we don’t have and blithely mortgage the future with a wink and a nod. Screw the next generation. It’s about getting credit now, lookin’ good for the upcoming election,” he says.
Quote:He said he and his colleagues often lie to try to be all things to all people instead of tackling the nation’s problems.
Quote:“Voters are incredibly ignorant. It’s far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification . . .” vents Congressman X.
Quote:He says money “corrupts” and House members are “puppets” to lobbyists who bankroll their campaigns.
Quote:“Business organizations and unions fork over more than $3 billion a year to those who lobby the federal government. Does that tell you something? We’re operating a f–king casino,” he says.
Quote:“America’s on an irreversible decline and no one in Washington seems to care . . . God help us.”
Congressman X is a Dem.
This is nothing new to us but it is nice to see one of them finally admit it.
What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
