US Congress: A forest cannot be cut with a broken axe.

Filed in Current affairs, Politics by on February 16, 2010 0 Comments

Republicans and Democrats are quitting the congress. Many of them have announced that they are retiring. The question is, why now? Two explanations are possible: the American people are waking up after long years in a “coma” and people understand better that the American political system is a system of pure corruption.

Democrats and Republicans are unable to accomplish anything. The political system is bizarre. A political party who does have a majority cannot govern without the magic 60 votes in congress, which is hard to have.

Change is coming in the congress. Certainly future senators will have a different approach when it’s about solving problems concerning the people of America. But, the change should start by the congress first. The system is broken. As the Bateke of Gabon say, “A forest cannot be cut with a broken axe.”
