Political Accountability Should Matter
Do Americans Care About Political Accountability Anymore?
Political accountability is desperately lacking in American politics but no one seems to care. Why have the American voters given up and given in? Why aren’t Americans pushing back? Why have we allowed the media, members of Congress and Obama to go unchecked? In the past elected officials were accountable to their constituents…not anymore…now they seem more accountable to themselves.
Could Americans have stopped caring about political accountability because instead of leadership in the politicians they elected to represent their best interests they see self-centered, selfish, career-oriented representatives? Very, very few members of Congress or the White House feel any responsibility to be answerable to we the people. The job of an American politician is to advance the will of the people, not secure votes for re-election, accept hush money or pass laws that are so confusing and complicated that we cannot understand them.
And that is not only sad, but worrisome. Obama and the current elected members of Congress are far more concerned about reforming immigration policy in order to secure cheap labor (Republican Congressional members) and a slew of new voters (Democrat Congressional members) than they are about securing the future of our country. They seem more interested in giving a pass to politicians who lie under oath than prosecuting her. They only care about economic progress when it’s reelection time. And as far as repealing the worst law ever passed (Obamacare), they only pay lip-service to that when they need to make a campaign promise.
Why do Americans understand the difference between “legal” and “illegal” immigration but politicians do not? Because we the people will pay the price, the politicians won’t. Why do Americans understand the impact of Obamacare but politicians do not? Because we have to live under the rules, regs and restrictions of that hideous law, the politicians do not. What’s wrong with this picture….the politicians against we the people? When are we the people going to start pushing back? Wake up people before we lose everything.
