Ohio Diary #12: Rep. Jim Jordan

A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible.
Woodrow Wilson 

Rep. Jim Jordan said that he knows what the American people want.  It is lower federal spending and a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.  Yes indeed.   No mention of jobs, jobs, and more jobs.  “Americans understand you’ve got to live within your means. They want it done smart and they want it done in a fair way,” Jordan said.  And, then in his best JFK impersonation, said “the nation may be reaching a John  F. Kennedy moment, where it is time for people to ask not what their country can do for them, but what they can do for their country.”  He said what, and quoted who?

I am shocked, just shocked, that he pretends to know what the people want.  The people he speaks about are corporations.  And yes he and his fellow repubtards know what they want.  Since the Supreme Court told us that Corporations are people too, then I want to be a corporation.  I am a person.  We should all become corporations, get huge tax cuts, pay no taxes,  give myself a huge pay increase, and have powerful friends in Congress who will give me anything want.

But what really disgusts me is that Jordan, Boehner , good caring, compassionate Ohioans is that they presume to speak for the people.  They talk about the American people as he they belonged to them. When they find out that the American people don’t think they do, they just simply lose interest in the American people.  They don’t remember the working man or the middle class. They used to defend the middle class, at least at times.  The American people turned into organized labor and they don’t love us any more.  They talk about giving us our rights, as if they could make a gift of liberty.  The arrogance of these little,  little men.  The underprivileged, the middle class has turned on them.  They now believe that everyone is out to ruin the rich mans paradise.

America was established not to create wealth but to realize a vision, to realize an ideal – to discover and maintain liberty among men.
Woodrow Wilson

I want my corporation.
