Keeping It Simple -- Professional Politicians

By Terry McGahey

After watching the first Republican debate, maybe it is time to put someone like Ben Carson or Donald Trump into our White House. 

We have had nothing but professional politicians running this country since the 1960's and before for the most part. And if you stop and think about it, overall, nothing has changed for the better. 

It sure seems to me that the changes we have seen over the last several years have been changes which has led us down the path to Socialism, not freedom. 

I am no Einstein by any stretch of the imagination, but it's my opinion that professional politicians are now tearing down this country and our way of life through the use of Political Correctness more so now than ever before in our country's history.

The professional politicians today are working harder to be re-elected than doing the right thing for the American people and our great country. 

They make deals behind closed doors, they lie to the people by telling us what they believe we want to hear, rather than telling us the plain truth. They jump ship to their buddies side of the aisle if it benefits them, and many of them are looking out for that fat-cat job after retiring from politics. 

Also, think about this for one moment, most of our professional politicians are attorneys. Anytime one group of people belonging to the same brotherhood are put in charge, they will take care of each other first.

Another thing, give some thought to how many of these politicians owe favors to special interest groups. Some owe favors to large corporations, some owe favors to Environmental groups, and some just owe favors to the wealthy people who helped get them elected to office, people like George Soros, who is purely a socialist, and if given the chance would be a communist ruler behind the scenes with his puppet president. 

Oh, wait a minute! Isn't that similar to what we have now?

No matter if you agree with Ben Carson or Donald Trump they seem to speak their minds which is why the professional politicians are afraid of them. 

Isn't the straight approach by Carson and Trump better than the lying, double-talking politicians we now have? At least we have an idea of what they stand for instead of voting in others who skirt the issues and who won't show us who they truly are until they are voted into office. Problem is, by then it's too late. 

Some examples are Obama, Pelosi, Boehner, Reed and Hillary Clinton, just to name a few. 

We must pass a bill first to know what is in it. Doesn't that sound familiar? Does this sound like the way our country is supposed to be run? 

I place Boehner in that category because he and several other Republicans did very little to help stop these type of bills from getting passed which is yet another example of the "I'll scratch your back and you scratch mine" politics.

Another thing to take a look at is our military. The Marine Corps are at the lowest number of fighting men than the Corps has been in many, many years. As for the Navy, for the first time in years, will not have a carrier group in the Mediterranean. 

If you can believe this, we are going to be utilizing a French carrier for our purposes. 

This is not only an embarrassment but it's also insane with what is going on with the radical Muslims in that part of the world. If this doesn't show you how far down the ladder our professional politicians have taken us over the years, then you will never get it. 

I realize that most folks who read this article do get it, but I am sure there will be a few far left, over educated Progressive idiots who won't and never will.

As of right now, I am not endorsing Mr. Carson or Mr. Trump. 

Only time will tell me who I will vote for, but as of this moment I like both men because of their honest approach, even though Mr. Trump is a little more rough around the edges then Mr. Carson. 

If I was going to endorse a candidate who has political experience right now it would be Ted Cruz. This man seems to truly have the true American spirit within him which is very important me. 

In closing, I would like all who read this article to think about one thing, if many of our professional politicians, including our so-called president, were transported back in time, to the time of our Founding Fathers, there would be a very good chance that some of them would be tried for treason.

And a few, to quote one old West judge, would be hung by the neck until dead, dead, dead!
