Why Primitive Politics?
In ancient times man used common sense to solve his problems in as simplistic fashion as possible. He did not have resources to waste and time was a critical element in his life. Today we find ourselves short on resources and time as well.
Our political situation has become complicated and overburdened with spin and deception. Our elected officials spend more time running for election then they do attempting to solve the problems that burden our nation. They have cloaked their financial affairs in secrecy while promising transparency. They are elected by the people but seem inclined to represent the best interests of their major campaign donors. They fight with each other rather than cooperate and attend to the people's business. The overall situation has become self-destructive and, because our leaders do nothing, must be addressed by the voters.
Much of America is in pain. Many of our citizens are without jobs; many are now homeless. Our well-paying jobs have been steadily leaving the country for cheaper labor markets. Large numbers of our fellow countrymen are living with less than they had just a few years ago. The overall quality of life for working class Americans has diminished dramatically.
I firmly believe that in these troubled times it is vital for all American Citizens to become active in the politics of the nation. It isn't just our duty anymore. It has become an issue of our own self-defense; our survival as a free and independent Democratic Society. We, The People of The United States, must speak out now!
I have named this section "Primitive Politics", because I feel that we need to return to the principles that made us a strong nation. These guiding mandates were laid down by our Founding Fathers hundreds of years ago, but they are extremely important to us now. The right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness coupled with the Bill of Rights in our Constitution are in danger of evaporating in our lifetime. We cannot allow this to happen to us. As citizens we must protect our American Republic and our unique way of life.
If you wish to find employment that supports your family adequately, have the ability to educate your children easily, live in peace with the other nations of this world, improve our environment and the basic quality of our lives, you must let your elected officials know your true feelings. A vocal electorate will help America to rebuild what it has lost: and we have lost much. If we remain silent other interests such as large corporations, special interest groups and foreign governments will dictate the quality of our, and our children's lives.
If it is your desire that we remain "A Government of the People, by the People and for the People, YOU must:
Learn all you can about current affairs.
Pay attention to your elected officials voting record because they are obliged to represent the people not select special interest groups that give them campaign donations. Never assume that your leaders will keep their campaign promises. When they stray from their promised path, write them letters and join protest groups; when the time comes… vote them out of office.
I have included a long list of informative websites as well as a link to our congressional database on the sidebar of this section. Use it! It is in your best interest to do so.
I am also inviting other Political Writers, Bloggers and Citizens to join this Blog. If you keep it business-like and polite, you may post here as often as you wish.

Well, let me tell you a few things. I do not follow anyone's party line. I think for myself. I like candidates that deal in relevant issues, truth and facts. I am concerned about our economy, jobs, the environment and preserving the Constitution.
Am I a Democrat, Republican or Independent? I am all of these things, sort of. I consider myself a Social Liberal and a Fiscal Conservative. I am a staunch supporter of equality and the civil guarantees set forth in our Constitution. I believe that Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are the inherent rights of all human beings.
