Harry Reid set up a total political fraud on Kansas voters and has no fear of voters making him pay.
The most disappointing thing about current American “leadership” is not simply that none of them will do things in the light—from lying about campaign support to hiding budget proposals—but that American voters tolerate such malfeasance, and never take liars and thieves to task by kicking them out.
I would rather have honest, hard-working, transparent, and less polished representatives than consummately “successful,” conniving, double-dealing, sociopaths. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner… the worst of the brambles of our culture are ruling over us.
America was supposed to be led by citizen legislators—men and women who serve for a brief time, and then go back home to the “real world.” Such connections would give them incentive to do right, since they have to come back to the world their policies impact. Today’s crop lives in a world of bribes and shadows, insulated from the effects of the evil they legislate.
Here’s a small example of the kind of system we get. From the Washington Examiner: “Yes, Dems did funnel money to ‘independent’ in Kansas Senate race.”
Anyone who followed this year’s Senate race in Kansas — the one longtime GOP incumbent Pat Roberts appeared to be losing to Greg Orman, the businessman running as an independent — knows Orman and his supporters vigorously denied Roberts’ allegation that Orman was really a Democrat running to further the Democratic agenda.
“By word, by deed, by campaign contribution, this man is a liberal Democrat,” Roberts said of Orman during a debate in October. “A vote for Greg Orman is a vote to extend the Barack Obama/Harry Reid agenda.”
Not true, Orman answered. “The senator can say that over and over again, but it doesn’t make it so.”
What voters did not know was at that very moment, Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid’s political action committee, the Senate Majority PAC, was preparing to pour more than a million dollars into the pro-Orman effort in Kansas. Reid was just waiting to make sure the donations came so late in the campaign that the public wouldn’t find out about them until after the election.
Our system gives us the government we deserve. We consistently elect and reward demons and then wonder why the nation is on the Highway to Hell.
