Time for a housecleaning

Thomas Paine once said, “Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil.” Our Bill of Rights is a profound acknowledgement of the Founding Fathers’ distrust of politicians that we elect to Congress.

Congress shall not "infringe, abridge, deny, disparage, and violate; words limiting the possible abuses these politicians can inflict on the populace. The brilliant and gifted men who wrote the Constitution and Bill of Rights must have had an inner sense that the God-given natural rights of man could be trampled by greedy, undisciplined men who in their insatiable appetite for control and power needed restraint by “We the People” and the words written in these documents.

We have failed our Founding Fathers through apathy, laziness, and ignorance of history, thereby allowing the abysmal state our nation is now in. Lack of presidential leadership, through inability to lead or implementing the change, whatever his excuse, he’s proven again and again that he is unfit for the job.

Congress, too, has proven again and again that, as a whole, it’s unfit to govern. Never before has Washington D.C. needed such a thorough and complete housecleaning. A bunch of empty suits compose Congress, and our president’s lack of aptitude as a patriot ... well, my limited vocabulary doesn't know how to describe him and his miserable performance.
