The American public is fed up with the Congressional corruption and treachery — recent polls suggest that only about one-third of Americans approve of how Congress is doing — and many in Congress are reportedly worried about holding on to their seats in the November 2010 elections.
Congress should be worried. After suffering through the past eight and a half years of criminal rule, it has become painfully evident that it’s time to fix America’s broken two-party political system. Democrats and Republicans are essentially the same in most ways. It’s time to look at alternative parties to do the bidding of the American population or to clean up our current system.
The Reuters report attributes the declining popularity of Congress to the depressed U.S. economy and passing a significant healthcare reform bill, but America’s dissent of Congress stems from a lot more than that.
Many of the current Democrats in Congress were elected because America wanted a change from the tyrannical dictatorship that America became under President George W. Bush. Americans wanted out from under the illegal occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and Americans wanted their civil rights and liberties restored.
