Government and ParanoiaIt is not paranoid to distrust our government. Whether one sits on the left or right of the political spectrum, gross fiscal and economic mismanagement, unnecessary war, failures in justice, and a corrupted political process remain facts and evidence that our government, in the hands of the two parties and elected officials, has failed the American public.
However, it is also true that the American voters can hold their representatives accountable on Election Day for their justified fears. Voting for incumbents is voting to keep what we already have in the way of government. When 80 to 90% of representatives are reelected, their is no mandate for change in our government. Our future remains in the hands of the voting public as it always has.
