Cor­rupt pol­i­tics

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

In 1788, James Madi­son said: “I be­lieve there are more in­stances of the abridge­ment of the free­dom of the peo­ple by grad­ual and silent en­croach­ments of those in power than by vi­o­lent and sud­den usurpa­tions.”

Our­recent­midter­m­elec­tion­re­sultsshowhow true this is. Amer­ica’s po­lit­i­cal di­rec­tion started with pa­tri­ots and mor­phed into politi­cians who have cre­ated their own so­ci­ety through cor­rup­tio­nand­de­ceit.Our­pa­tri­ots’pri­or­i­ty­wastogrow Amer­i­caandthen­re­turn­totheir­livesafter­many months’ work con­duct­ing Amer­ica’s busi­ness.

We would never al­low a politi­cian to raise our fam­ily nor run our busi­ness. Amer­i­cans need to wake up and re­al­ize that they are los­ing­what­madeAmer­i­caboth­greatand­strong.
