Was the 2006 election the moment the government stopped listening to he people?

TARP - the GM bailout - health care reform - now cap&trade and amnesty for illegals.

The majority of the citizens oppose the majority of what the Democrats are doing.

And for those who deny that there is an amnesty bill in Congress:

Rep. Gutierrez Introduces Mass Amnesty Bill

Tuesday, December 15, 2009, 4:47 PM EDT

"Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) introduced legislation today that offers amnesty to the nation's estimated 11-18 million illegal aliens. The Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity Act (H.R. 4321) would increase annual immigration numbers while putting an end to many of the enforcement mechanisms currently put into place by federal, state and local governments.

"H.R. 4321 would offer amnesty to all illegal aliens living in the United States at the time of the bill's passage as long as they meet a short list of requirements, including a criminal and security background check and a fine of $500 which will be waved for children and individuals who entered the country before the age of 16. Illegal aliens can then become citizenship by meeting requirements over a six-year period. "

Yes, it is still there.

    I'd say 1776. Most colonists wanted to remain a part of England. It's true.

    It has picked up quite a bit in recent years.

    We were never a true democracy, we were a representative government.

    Now it appears that we're not even that anymore.

    Nope, 2000.

    The people didn't elect Bush, his money and connections did.

    The government stopped listening to republicans. FYI, republicans are not the PEOPLE.

    I am sorry that you hate our representative democracy and the constitution. You are welcome to leave if you hate America so much.
