Is it true?
Do we get the government that we deserve?
And if so...why do you think we deserve the government that we have?
In the opening dissertation on this group's main page it is written:
"They have worded their campaign election laws as to hinder a 3rd parties equal participation.
"They have ignored the will and happiness of the American people to better themselves.
"They have sold their office to the highest bidder to better themselves.
"They have altered the American economy to benefit themselves and others.
"They have allowed our great country to become dependent on foreign countries to better themselves and others.
"They have failed to protect our borders to benefit themselves and others.
"They have governed with special interest and are governed by special interest to benefit themselves and others.
"They have squandered the power given to them by the majority.
"They have abandon the American labor force .
"They have written tax laws with loop-holes for the wealthy to benefit themselves and others.
"They have acted in a manner unbecoming the office they hold.
"They have let the tort system operate unabated to benefit themselves and others.
"They have protected their offices from the American people to their benefit.
"They have ruled with fear and hatred to suppress their fellow man."
Again, if we do diserve the government we have, and as the points cited above indicate, it is not a government that one could even genrously call constructive...WHY? HOW? did we ever get to a place where we deserved such a government as this?
One of the many hats that I wear is that of a carpenter. In carrying out my duties as a carpenter I encounter a diversity of problems. And in the course of coming up with solutions to these problems it is not uncommon for me to assign the cause of the problem to an incorrect source i.e., an incorrect why. However, I do not realize that I have chosen an incorrect why or even question it (I'm so certian that I've got the correct solution for the problem) until I enact my solution and discover that the problem did not resolve. In other words, I did not have the real WHY. And...until I am able to spot what is really the problem (sometimes it's so obvious that I can't see it and sometimes it's something that I would've never even imagined) the problem will not resolve.
Why do we, the American people, deserve this government?
If we have not isolated the real WHY, then we will not be able to resolve the problem. Yes, we could come close but close does not a solution make. If we were digging for gold and missed the vein by an eigth of an inch we still missed it. In fact, if we are attempting to solve an incorrect WHY we may only serve to compound the complexities of the problem thereby only enhancing its endurance and formidablity.
Now I am going to ask four very difficult questions that I do not have the answers to but perhaps we can put our collective consciousness to work here and make some discoveries. Here are the questions:
1. What is the exact problem that we are trying to solve with the Energy Party?
2. What are we identifying to be the real WHY that is the source of this problem?
3. What is our solution to this problem?
4. How will our solution resolve the problem?
