The media are not the only problem.

Poll: Half of Republicans think media should be described as enemy of people

That’s for sure. But the Government/Media Complex is a hard combination to beat. Especially when there’s little difference between the two parties, the permanent bureaucracy is fighting for its life, and the traditional media are losing customers at an increasing rate. Even previously-neutral (so far as we knew) players on the Internet are showing their true colors so plainly that nobody can mistake them for honest brokers.

All these recent calls to limit free speech and take guns out of law-abiding citizens’ hands don’t surprise me in the slightest. We just need to keep up the skeer. Oh, I’m sorry, did I just quote Nathan Bedford Forrest? That ought to trigger someone.

The real solution, of course, is to hang every elected official in Congress, regardless of party, by the neck until dead, hold elections for a new Congress, hang them too, and then hold another election.  I figure by the third time around, the folks who get elected will understand that the people they work for are serious about that whole “servant of the people” schtick.

Keep government properly frightened of the people who elected it, and it will be your servant.  Fail to keep up the skeer, and it will become your master.
