LETTER:Who’s to blame?
© Culpeper TimesI read the article entitled "Residential development is still out of control in PW" with interest. I drew two conclusions from this article and others regarding county, state and federal politicians.
1. They should stop using the word "politician" and replace it with the words "Tax Raisers and Big Spenders."
2. Mr. Stewart was elected by the people. If there is any fault with his administration you can honestly blame the low information voters. They have no interest in what goes on in government.
As Benjamin Franklin stated when asked at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 "Well, Doctor, what have we got - a republic or a monarchy?" His famous and historical reply was "A republic, if you can keep it."
The question is can the current generations of voters care enough to keep it or are they overly confident that this republic is indestructible?
Their profound lack of knowledge and concern as to what is happening politically at all levels of government is beyond dangerous not only politically but economically.
These "tax raisers and big spenders" will eventually bankrupt the county, the state and the nation.
The blame lies squarely on the uncaring and uninformed voter and those who find it too difficult to vote.
Conclusion: If we have any complaints about government we should look into a mirror and point a finger.
