We need a fighter to retake government

We have forever spoken ill of government. We refer to all of them as “a bunch of thieves.” It is ingrained in us to dislike government. We don’t trust it; we don’t give it much attention. In essence we have set our government out at the curb for anyone to take.

The rich came along and saw an investment opportunity. In their eyes they took it legal and fair.

Now we have a corrupt government where lying and cheating are the norm. Laws do not apply to them. This has come to a head in the last few years. The impeachment is where some are trying to fight back.

Those who took the government “fair and square” are determined to keep it. Those who are now trying to take back the government (for the people) are being blocked from their constitutional rights to fairness and access to facts.

To get our government back we need to bring in a political SWAT team. We have to take it back. This is not done by pleases and thank yous. It is done by smart tactical methods with a strong dedicated fighter at the lead.

At this time in our history we need the likes of Elizabeth Warren with a lot of fight and determination. Nevertheless she persisted. This is no time for any of us on the sidelines to be slackers. Everyone needs to actively participate. This is urgent.
