American politicians have become increasingly confused about their jobs and powers in recent years. Perhaps this could help straighten out the confusion, look at the job titles; President, Vice-President, Senator, Congressman all these titles are followed by, “The United States of America”. The titles are not followed by “The World” though they seem to think so.
Our politicians have lost their way, they have forgotten the sacred trust they inherited from those who came before and that simply is, the protection and betterment of the United States of America and her legal citizens called Americans. They are not responsible for bettering the quality of life or the governing any other nation. Especially, when the bettering of the other nation lowers the quality of life for Americans.
They have forgotten that in a republic the government derives its powers from the people. Its job is to serve the people it is not the people’s job to serve the government.
It is time to vote out all the politicians who think their title ends in “The World” and elect officials who understand the title ends in “the United States of America”. People who understand the legacy left them by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the like who envisioned not a ruling elite class of politicians but rather common men coming together for a short period not a career to best help govern their friends and countrymen to make and keep America free and the best country in the world.
