Mark Caserta: We have term limits now – it’s called an election.

Stop putting these hypocrites in office and then complaining about the jobs they do!

People around the world risk their lives to exercise their right to vote, while too many Americans sit on the sidelines.

November 1, 2020

A recent Pew Research survey produced some very disturbing insight as to how U.S. citizens feel about taking advantage of their right to vote.

“Nearly 56% of the U.S. voting-age population cast ballots in the 2016 presidential election, representing a slight uptick compared with 2012 but less than in the record year of 2008.”

Folks, this is unacceptable.  It’s the epitome of hypocrisy for the United States to rattle their saber for Democracy around the world when our own people won’t get off their backsides and vote!

That’s a very, sad commentary, indeed.

The United States is the greatest nation in the world for one reason. It’s foundation depends upon the engagement of its citizens.  It is a government for the people, by the people.

A wise man once said, “Don’t complain about what you permit.”

How many times do you hear someone complain about the conditions or environment in which we live, yet do absolutely nothing to change it – but complain?

If we take our freedoms for granted now, how will our children view them the next generation? 

We know, without a shadow of a doubt, that we have deep-state politicians who blatantly “rely” upon the ignorance of American citizens to the way they are represented.

Over the years, politicians have tended to hide their socialist tendencies and their lack of commitment to representing the people.

But now liberal Democrats run campaigns on that strategy!  The only reason they have the ability to do so is that we’ve allowed them control over our lives.  Politicians have been empowered and emboldened to do whatever they want to do, without fear of recompense.

Our Republic thrives on representation by those elected or hired by the people.  The fact that a representative may have an opposing view to that of their constituents is one matter.  But it’s an entirely different matter for a representative to ignore the wishes of the people in lieu of their own selfish agendas or compliance to their party’s platform!

Our Constitution does not protect the platform of a political party!  It protects the rights of U.S. citizens and the sovereignty of our nation!

I’ve learned over half a century of following politics that politicians understand only one language – the vote. 

Here’s the bottom line.

If you’re tired of lying political leaders who, frankly, are in their line of work for financial gain and power, you have the ability to give them their “pink slip” and send them back to the private sector!  But you have to be willing to exercise your right to vote!

It will take time, but we need to begin the process of training politicians to do their job or face the consequences.  Don’t keep electing the same feckless, hypocritical individuals who care more about their motivations than yours!

We have term limits now.  It’s called your vote.
