Not sure that I follow the argument that ObamaCare is a form of slavery, however, what is far more noteworthy here is the attitude Congressman Pete Starks has toward the role of the federal government in our lives.

I look at this man as I have to wonder how do people like this get elected to Congress?  He sit’s there, almost in a daze, completely indifferent to the opinions of his constituency.  We see this again and again. 

In Stark’s case, he has been on the public dole for 37 years, Rangel for nearly 40 years, and the list goes on and on.

And the American people keep re-electing them!

The woman in the video make the comment that people such as Starks are destroying this nation is spot on, however, they are doing with the full complicity of the citizens of this country.  The simplest analogy is ‘garbage in, garbage out’. 

Never have been a big proponent of term limits, feeling that it’s a easy step for the American people to avoid responsibility, however, I do believe there should be a ceiling on the length of service.  After 30 – 40 years, how in touch can these people be with everyday Americans?

For those who feel that Stark’s is getting a bum rap, here’s a comment he made at a town hall last year.  The vast majority of those in Congress have nothing more than contempt for the people of this country, only acknowledging the people once every two years to ensure re-election.  Again, it is what it is only because we allow it to happen.  Thirty-seven years…
