The budget and debt ceiling stalemate illustrates why government needs better press oversight and voters need to ensure balanced representation. All forms of government and political spectrum are to blame. Successful states and cities tend to have balanced representation driven by trusted leaders. California is the poster child for a state in deep decline as the result one-party rule.
The framers of the Constitution wanted the press to keep government in check. The press holds the government accountable and must vigorously investigate waste and corruption. It’s time for the press to do their job. Report the news, uncover truth and validate facts across the political spectrum. For heaven’s sakes, stop taking sides.
Why am I worried? When a government controls the press, the Constitution can be destroyed. Dictatorships, socialism, Nazism, imperialism all come to mind. Such forms of government can’t thrive without controlling the press. Currently the U.S. press is biased toward the Democratic Party. If this continues, the Constitution will be destroyed from within, people lose freedom and American society collapses.
The stakes are high. Today the president acts like a dictator. His leadership is no longer trusted or admired by a majority of the country. Yet the press gives this president a free pass. Why?
The Senate (Democrat majority) focuses more on blocking legislation, rather than passing budgets. Why does the press allow Harry Reid to get away with a constitutional requirement?
The House (Republican-controlled) is not perfect, either. However, the press treats Republicans as second-class politicians when compared to Democrats. The national and local media in general dislike conservative views. Just watch any nightly news program and observe media bias.
Let’s learn from past dictatorships and hold our government accountable through a fair and balanced press. Fragmented government will prevent us from declining further. Example: Democrats pushed bad legislation called “Obamacare” without a single Republican vote. Imagine the damage if Democrats controlled the presidency, Senate and House: Socialism or Nazism all over again.
