Time to recycle …. congress

You won’t usually hear me saying “go green,” but I think it is time to recycle … Congress. We need legislators who will: secure our borders, make English our national language, mandate quarterly drug tests for everyone on welfare and food stamp programs, balance the budget by cutting spending, reserve “freebies” (education, health care, welfare, food stamps, etc.) for American citizens only, repeal the obscene health care bill, end the “birthright” provision that allows people here illegally to give birth to automatic American citizens, end congressional pensions for legislators with only one term of service, require proof of American birth for all presidential nominees, and adhere to the U.S. Constitution.

I am tired of electing representatives who quickly become part of the existing system that buys votes by selective redistribution of taxpayer money. Our country was based on limited – very limited – federal government powers. In most matters not involving national security, the states and the people were to have maximum responsibility and power. That has now been turned upside down.

The federal government is controlling our toilets and our light bulbs, and is starting on our health care. Meanwhile, it is neglecting its national security responsibility (securing our borders), and even suing a state for trying to do so.

Let’s take the power back. Recycle Congress. Every election, throw out every member who does not work toward limiting the federal government to constitutional principles. Accept no excuses.
