OUR GOVERNMENT HAS WASTED COUNTLESS OF OUR DOLLARS, THE SCOPE IS HUGE, AND THE ENTIRETY IS UNREALISED.
WE NEED TO GET OUR CHECKBOOK IN BALANCE.
THERE’S SO MANY CATASTROPHIC SCENARIOS THIS COULD LEAD TO.
|$45,000,000||A 45 Million Camera Surveillance System Codenamed "Project Shield" Failed Because it wasn't Built to Withstand Chicago's Harsh Weather: The $45-million Cook County Homeland Security initiative was supposed to make residents feel safe, but in the end, the troubled Project Shield resembled more of a disaster. The Cook County initiative was replete with equipment that failed to work because of weather conditions, missing equipment records and untrained first responders, according to a report by the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.|
|$1,000,000,000||Suspend acquisition of federal office space: Each year the federal government spends money to acquire hundreds of thousands of feet of new office space while at the same time paying to maintain vacant office buildings.|
LOTS OF THE MONEY MENTIONED ABOVE WASN’T ALL WASTED ON DUMB PURCHASES AND OVER-PAYING. IT WAS DIVERTED, MISALLOCATED, STOLEN, USED IN BACK ROOM GRANT DEALS WE NEVER HEAR ABOUT FOR THINGS WE NEVER BENEFIT FROM, GIVEN AWAY TO COMPANIES DEEMED ‘TOO BIG TO FAIL” WHILE SMALL BUSINESSES ACROSS THE COUNTRY FACE SHUTDOWNS AND PERMANET CLOSURE.
MEANWHILE BACK ON CAPITAL HILL CONGRESS MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE MAKING A KILLING ON WALL STREET FROM INSIDER TRADING.
IN 2019, TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL STATED THAT THE UNITED STATES IS “EXPERIENCING THREATS TO ITS SYSTEM OF CHECKS AND BALANCES”, ALONG WITH AN “EROSION OF ETHICAL NORMS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF POWER”.
LOBBYING, ELECTION INTERFERENCE, HYPOCRISY, FINANCING…
ITS ALL ONE BIG CLUB, AND WE ARE CERTAINLY NOT IN IT.
WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT.
THE PARTIES IN CHARGE HAVE DONE NOTHING TO HELP THE FURTHERING DIVIDE BETWEEN THEIR RESPECTIVE CONSTITUENTS, IN FACT EVERYTHING THEY DO SEEMS TO BE IN GOAL OF INCREASING THAT DIVIDE.
THERE IS NO MORE CIVIL DISCUSSION OR MIDDLE GROUND BEING FOUND. POLITICIAN’S GO AND SIT ON THEIR PHONE UNTIL IT’S THEIR TURN TO GRANDSTAND WHAT EVER THE HOT TOPIC OF THE DAY IS. THEY ACT SMUG AND DISINGENUOUS TOWARDS THEIR COUNTERPARTS FROM ACROSS THE AISLE. COUNTLESS CYCLES OF INCONSISTENCY AND HYPOCRISY FUELING THE FLAMES, STANDING ON CAPITAL HILL POINTING THEIR FINGERS AND PLACING BLAME ON EACHOTHER LIKE SCHOOL CHILDREN AND CAUSING MORE PROBLEMS INSTEAD OF SOLVING ANY.
ALL THE MEANWHILE THEY GO BACK TO THEIR FANCY HOMES WHILE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CONTINUE TO SUFFER AND CONTINUE TO BECOME MORE DIVIDED AND HOSTILE TOWARDS EACHOTHER.
AND THEY LAUGH ABOUT IT ON TV. ALL OF THEM.
SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE.
“”However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
