    Watch this; Greta gets it and this elected liar and obfuscator is flat out wrong. It's time that the people of this country (from the left and the right) come together to fix this government.

    This US Senator should be ashamed. She is a huge part of the problem and barely eked out a win in her senatorial campaign.

    She knows there is no stomach for real change in DC especially regarding waste and fraud and they have no darn right to raise taxes on anyone when they haven't even passed a budget. Please people of the left listen to her, she thinks you're stupid.

    We will never fix this nation until we demand honesty from our elected leaders. If your representative lies and you say nothing because you want to stick it to your political foes than you are also the problem.

    "war should not only be declared by the authority of the people, whose toils and treasures are to support its burdens, instead of the government which is to reap its fruits: but that each generation should be made to bear the burden of its own wars, instead of carrying them on, at the expence of other generations." -- James Madison

    “The loud little handful will shout for war. The pulpit will warily and cautiously protest at first…The great mass of the nation will rub its sleepy eyes, and will try to make out why there should be a war, and they will say earnestly and indignantly: ‘It is unjust and dishonorable and there is no need for war.’ Then the few will shout even louder…Before long you will see a curious thing: anti-war speakers will be stoned from the platform, and free speech will be strangled by hordes of furious men who still agree with the speakers but dare not admit it...Next, statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”
    — Mark Twain
