Why do things never seem to change no matter who we send to
Washington? It seems like for decades many of us have been trying to
change the direction of this country by engaging in the political
process. But no matter how hard we try, the downward spiral of our
nation just continues to accelerate. Just look at this latest spending
deal. Even though the American people gave the Republicans control of
the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, this deal
very closely resembles “an Obama administration-era budget”. It
increases spending even though we have already been adding more than a
trillion dollars a year to the national debt, it specifically forbids
the building of a border wall, it fully funds Planned Parenthood, and
there are dozens of other concessions to the Democrats in it. As I previously warned, these “negotiations” were a political rout of epic proportions.
many of us were being highly unrealistic when we expected that Donald
Trump could change things. Because fixing America is going to take a
lot more than getting the right number of “red” or “blue” politicians to
Washington. Rather, the truth is that the real problem lies in our
hearts, and the corrupt politicians that currently represent us are
simply a reflection of who we have become as a nation.
generations of people that founded this nation and established it as the
greatest republic that the world had ever seen had far different values
than most Americans do today.
So until there is a dramatic shift in how most of us see the world, it is quite likely that not much in Washington will change.
