Today’s news:

U.S. government has lost touch with the US

Our government and representatives no longer serve our aspirations, but rather impose and demand subservience to their desires and pleasures.

On the national level, over 75 percent of the population wants the borders secured, immigration monitored and English legislated as our official language, yet Congress refuses to act.

The re-election of 92 percent of incumbent representatives suggests a perilous apathy to their dereliction of duty and moral and financial indiscretions. We have relinquished our power and lost control of our borders and culture and are in the process of losing our language, too.

We lost control of our monetary system when congress gave the Federal Reserve Board the monopoly to print money. Thomas Jefferson argued that a national bank was "unconstitutional" and warned of devaluing and debasing the currency with paper money. Thanks to the Fed, our dollar is backed by the full faith and credit of the guy who could not handle his mortgage or car payments.

The performance and conduct of our representatives are a matter of record and proof we no longer have a "government of the people, by the people, for the people."
