IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS USED TO STOP PROGRESS.

THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE DEALS WITH A  FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
BEING AVERTED BY INSTITUTING A TEMPORARY BUDGET.  THE DATE IS 12/12/2014.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS, THAT WILL HELP US TODAY?

Emotion, Greed, Sin, Deadly, America

As another "Crisis" has been averted, and a Temporary Budget keeps the Federal Government running for now, the claims of Shady and Unscrupulous Compromises are coming from all sides.

I'm not going to Deny that. Given the Circumstances, its almost certainly True. This is Exemplified by the Inclusion in the Body of the Budget, passed by the House Of Reps., Terminology to Reduce or Eliminate certain parts of Finance Reform Law, set up to hold Irresponsible Investors Accountable for Their Actions. Tax Payer Bailouts were no longer a way out for Incompetence and/or Greed.  This was something Major Financial Institutions did not want, and with Bi-Partisan support, they got it included.

The Real Question is this:  How do Politicians, who continually Lobby and Vote for Legislation that seems to Benefit  Very Select Groups of Individuals and Businesses, keep getting Supported and Reelected?  Often, this is by a Majority of Voters who suffer from the Stands they take on the Issues.  Is it some Sinister Plot, A Lack of Insight by the Electorate, or some reason that Has Eluded Detection?

The Best way to approach such a Subject is with an understanding of;

-  Motivations that Drive People to Act in a Certain Way.

-  The Ability of the Average Voter to Understand what is actually
at Stake when they Support a Particular Issue, if it is Legislated into Law.

-  The Degree of Success a Politician or Political Party has in masking The
Real Reasons for the Stands they take on the Issues.

-  What you consider an Elected Official to be, and what their function is
while in Office.  In other Words, what is considered Important and Most Vital,
apart from anything else.

These are Questions that must be answered, for it Forces The Electorate to 
take a Hard Look at Their own Personal Biases.
