Where are the patriots?

It seems so simple, yet the interference by government into poor peoples’ lives has been and continues to be a failure, comparable to the future failures of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

All unconstitutional combined failures have obligated the taxpayers of America a staggering 80-90 trillion dollars of unfunded debt. This on top of the 17 trillion dollars of current operating debt, I feel embarrassed and ashamed of the condition of this once great nation. Yet, not many seem to care as they continue re-electing the same bunch of lowlife, egotistic, self-serving, unpatriotic, Constitution-ignoring congresspersons back to office, presidents included.

I can't remember when I voted "for" someone to national office. Most every time I go to the polls, it is to vote against a person. Where have the patriots gone? Why can't the Republicans and/or Democrats put a good, honest America-loving person up for elective office? Could the parties be more interested in party and self than America?

I would very much like to ignore party affiliation and vote for a person who would work to return us to constitutional government. Strict adherence to the Constitution could, over time, save this country, but the longer we allow the so-called representatives currently running the show to keep doing what they have been doing, we will reach a point where recovery is impossible.

Reported total federal tax collected by U.S. government in 2013 is $2.77 trillion. Total worth of America is estimated to be $94 trillion. Considering the above listed debt, can the United States of America be far behind Detroit? It may not affect me, but my children and grands are being cheated of a free, prosperous future.
