America’s constitutional system is a work of genius. But today that system is broken. That’s the simple truth here. And I think most of us know it.
You can see this truth in the failed adventure in Iraq. Only a Congress without a spine would allow a president to send our kids to war 10,000 miles away from home for no good reason and with no plan for victory.
You can see this truth in a national debt that has spiraled out of control. Only a Congress that had lost its mind would help pile up three trillion dollars in debt in just the past seven years alone.
You can see the truth of our broken system in the shameful way that Washington hasn’t lifted a finger to deal with energy independence or climate change. Only a Congress in the pocket of special interest groups would ignore the reality of global warming for year after year even as glaciers melt and temperatures rise.
You can see the truth of America’s failed politics in the complete collapse of our healthcare system. Only a Congress beholden to an extreme ideology of every one for themselves could allow 47 million Americans to go without healthcare coverage, watching as thousands of our citizens literally die every year from lack of coverage, and yet do nothing at all to address the problem.
Finally, you can see our broken system in the ways that America’s economy no longer works for everyone. Only a Congress that is bought and paid for by the super rich would look the other way as most income gains in the past seven years went to the top five percent of households, and America’s middle class – which is the very bedrock of our society – struggles to make ends meet.
It’s time for some members of Congress to go. And we have one of them right here in Charlotte.
Our nightmare started on December 12, 2000 when the Supreme Court appointed George W. Bush president. Sue Myrick stood with this president virtually 100% of the time. On December 12, 2007 we need your help in retiring Sue Myrick.
On December 12th, we’re asking 4,000 Harry Taylor supporters to contribute at least $25…to raise $100,000 in a single day! Will you stand with me to take our country back? Sign up here.
Thanks for your support!
