DON KINSMAN: The path we are on is not sustainable

June 26, 2014 

Ionce read that George Washington once stated, "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence -- it is a force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action."

I believe the American people have for far too long left the government to such irresponsible action. This has led to our legislative bodies and presidential administrations routinely ignoring the Constitution and a ridiculous level of national debt. It appears our elected officials are more interested in pandering to special interests to buy votes, rather than doing what is right for the country. It should be clear to everyone the path we are on is not sustainable.

So please folks, keep informed on the issues, contact your representatives often, and vote.
