  • Lake view: The footprint of politics

  • I wonder if our government realizes the footprint in politics they are leaving behind. In a world that has drafted the phrase ‘carbon footprint,’ and somehow out of one term billions of dollars flow — the political footprint created through elected officials is the very same thing.

  • I wonder if our government realizes the footprint in politics they are leaving behind. In a world that has drafted the phrase ‘carbon footprint,’ and somehow out of one term billions of dollars flow — the political footprint created through elected officials is the very same thing.
    As of now the footprint shows us that they cannot get past the differences of the two parties to come to a solution that the American people want. They consistently disregard the cry for less spending and we over and over hear in the news that we are sending billions to foreign countries, from fighter jets to pottery.
    When do we actually get heard, will it be when the economy collapses? Will it be when the dollar is devalued to the point that it is not the world currency? When will we be heard and regard given to what we have to say? Will it be in this political footprint being created today or will it be forced on us when our economy collapses?
    We cannot continue as a country to carry the deficit that we carry and we certainly cannot withstand the crushing weight of a deficit we are facing of 20 trillion which is the expected amount at the end of this Presidents term. This footprint will show the fallacy of Obamacare.
    It will show that saying something over and over again does not make it true. It will show that those in the political circle profited from advocating special interest groups. It will show that the government has devalued the meaning of being American and all that being American stands for. It will show that the most deceitful, profit and the good guy doesn't win. And just like the carbon footprint somehow billions of wasted dollars flow through it.
