Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation is important. We wouldn’t know about Hilary’s private server and the subsequent cover-up without it. And eventually it will prevent an incompetent, dishonest politician who believes she is above the law from becoming President.
I wish though that someone would investigate why the people who voted in the 2010 and 2014 elections have been ignored. We voted for conservatism, to slow our county’s headlong rush into socialism, instead we got more spending, a bigger debt and now they have voted to reinstate failed green energy subsidies.
As Trump says, these people give money to both sides so they get theirs no matter who wins. Our government has spent billions to replace two dollar incandescent light bulbs made in Texas, with ten dollar fluorescent bulbs that have to be shipped 3,000 miles from a factory in China that is run on coal, on container ship that emits more carbon in one trip than all the light bulbs in America ever did.
In 2008, George Bush, Hank Paulson and Tim Geithner gave three quarters of a trillion dollars to a handful of New York City banks. I wish someone would investigate where the money went. Congress spent more on Obama’s stimulus bill than the entire space program from the beginning of the Apollo program to the last Space Shuttle. Someone should look into where the money went.
The government forces me to withhold a third of my employee’s wages and send it to Washington each week. Our system literally fines me every time I hire a new employee and rewards Ford for building a half billion dollar factory in Mexico. Someone should investigate who thought this was a good idea, and who paid which politicians to make it law.
We have a right to know where our money is going. Unfortunately, it would do no good to ask Congress because they have no idea. They don’t write budgets and they have no control over the debt because that control has been ceded to a new, unconstitutional fourth branch of government, one that operates behind closed doors and is robbing the American worker blind and in the process destroying the country’s wealth and sovereignty.
The Ford plant in Mexico is part of a plan that began with NAFTA that Congress has had very little to do with. They didn’t read that bill any more than they read last year’s budget. They just took the money and did what they were told. If a Trey Gowdy style investigation followed the money, it would lead to rich, connected thieves who are profiting on the backs of working people. We must quit voting for people who are taking money from them.
