Government Failure
• 12 Trillion Dollar Deficit?

(30% of kids do not graduate)
• Corrupt Tax Code
• Leaking Borders
• Ineptitude:
•
•
•
•
Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac
AmTrak
Post Office
etc.
Politicians
• John Murtha:
3 flights a day, contracts for his
nephew, Airport name
• Arlen Specter
“will not let the primary voters
determine the fate of my political career”
• Joe Liebermann:
run out of party for not
voting how he was told.
• Contract with America: “we don’t need
term limits, we are in power now.” Armey
• “Read my lips” Bush I
• “I did not have sex…” Clinton
Why All 435 Must GO
• Politicians serve
•
•
•
the special interest groups that fund them
the parties who tell them how to vote
their political career
• We the people are FOURTH at best
on their list of priorities
If ever a time should come, when vain and
aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in
government, our country will stand in need of
its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
