The American People: Who are they?

We hear the term, The American People bandied about by those guys in Congress all the time. I don't think they have any idea who the American people might be. They get elected by the American people who on the whole are of average intelligence and the American people believe they will do what they say they will do when running for office. If you believe that I've got some land under 10 feet of water to sell you in south Florida.

Congressman John Boehner (R) from Ohio cries at the drop of a handkerchief and Mitch McConnell (R) from Kentucky, is so self centered by his own importance that he has no idea who the American people might be. Man, wait until January when the Republicans take over the House of Representatives in Washington. We will be in deep El Toro Poo Poo. Then The American People will know the error of their ways this past November.

So if you are one of the American people, you better get off of your posterior and start letting our elected officials in Washington what we want accomplishes by our Congress.
