Pundits, Weep

“OUTSIDE THE BOX”

Is it time for the next set of leaders to come from outside of Washington, DC?

(May 28, 2015) — They’re out there, on the television talk shows, telling us what to think, but don’t look too closely at the facts. They’re known by many names: Democratic Strategist; former White House Advisor; Well-known Political Analyst. Some are New York Times Best Sellers, Pulitzer Prize winners, Honorable Mentions. They are fawned over, lauded as being “insightful” by conquest of time on the airways. They troll the lecture circuit, collecting fees for spouting falsehoods and lies by pretending they’re somehow “in-the-know” and therefore have privileged information that we mere peons will never have access to and, if we did, are not connected enough to comprehend what we see, first-hand.

These are the pundits that the mainstream media touts as being worthy to fill the empty air-time between commercials. These are the ones, be they Democrat or Republican, who proclaim that certain people are not qualified to run for president unless they have a track record in politics.

Okay, let’s take a minute out and examine what our professional politician class has given us. How does an $18+ trillion National Debt hit you? How does millions of illegal immigrants within our borders, not to mention the millions of Muslims? Unbalanced trade with China and Mexico? A Constitutionallyineligible de facto president Obama?

Okay, you get the idea. Our politicians have made a complete mess of things. Our country is going to the dogs and the world is a much more violent habitat then it was just six short years ago, and getting worse.

I’m sick of these so-called “pundits” knocking any presidential candidates as having “no political experience,” as if the world going to hell in a hand-basket isn’t enough testimony as to why maybe it’s  time to think outside the box.

Don’t be fooled; don’t be taken in: think for yourself. We know who they are: Washington “insiders” who are entrapped in the system to the point that they’re the problem by constantly proclaiming their fear of “outsiders” and NOT offering a possible solution by looking for our next leader “outside the box.”

    With 76 members of Congress being in that capacity for 20+ years, I would have to say, Tom, you are absolutely correct. The foundation of this country never saw a place for career politicians.
