As the Democrat Cookie Crumbles…

So, this AIG backlash is really starting to catch momentum.  People’s outrage just continues to snowball, and I have a real good feeling that more than a few representatives will see their careers on Capitol Hill end soon because of this issue.

Today reports came out which indicate that Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) inserted a loophole in the stimulus legislation that allowed million-dollar bonuses to insurance giant AIG to go forward.  Former GOP congressman Rob Simmons is taking full advantage of all the negative press surrounding Dodd by announcing this week that he will be running against Dodd (pictured above) when he comes up for re-election.

Now, I told all my friends when the 2008 elections took place that they’d be surprised how quickly the democrat majority would outlive it’s welcome, but even I’m surprised at the rate at which everything seems to be falling apart for the party in power.  It seems as though everything is falling apart for the Democrats, yet it’s only been a matter of weeks since their “savior” took on the Presidential office.

Here’s the thing… any time that one political party holds both the White House and an extreme majority in Congress, it’s just a disaster waiting to happen.  I am a conservative, but do not confuse me as a Republican.  I would be no happier if Congress was heavily Republican with a Republican President than I am right now.

The bottom line is that all politicians are greedy, and seek to push their own personal agendas… all the while doing everything it takes to get re-elected and maintain their position of power.  Therefore, whenever either party has unbridled authority to do what they please, we end up with them running our country into the ground.

The only way.  I repeat:  ONLY WAY for our country to function properly, is if Congress and the Executive Branch of the government are so split that they cannot “accomplish” anything… because invariably, every time they make an effort to “fix” things or stick their noses into issues where government doesn’t belong… they screw things even worse.

The best thing for this country and it’s future is to have a government that constantly quibbles amongst itself… leaving companies that are unethical to fail, and companies that are well managed to succeed.

People are realizing now that it isn’t a great thing to have such a democratic majority… and I think you’ll see things start to balance again when Congressional seats come up for re-election.

I do hope these recent events have opened the eyes of all those naive American citizens who actually thought we’d see “change” and convinced themselves that things would be different with the election of numerous Democrats… because the only thing that has changed is ethnicity of the person in the Oval Office.  Everything else is just more of the same.  Government doing what it does best:

United States Government modus operandi:

Step 1 – Screw things up.

Step 2 – Place blame on others and make excuses for Step 1.

Step 3 – “Fix” the problems that arose in Step 1 due to your incompetence.

Step 4 – Proclaim from the rooftops that you “fixed” the problem (that you yourselves created).

All the while… the intellegent/informed American citizen watches, and sighs a deep sigh of disgust.
