My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Judicial Watch Inc, Washington, DC, USA
As an independent, I vote during my local, state and national elections. In voting for a specific candidate, I make every attempt to vote for the person who I believe is best qualified and representative of the district I am from.
That being said, I am also a Vietnam era veteran, who received a purple heart, bronze star, two army accommodation medals as well as the Vietnam service medals for the period in which I served in country. I did this in service to my country -- a task fulfilled in consideration for living in one of the greatest country on earth, with the greatest freedoms experienced by any human.
As I look back on the building blocks of our great country, where early politicians who were elected, served their country for a limited period of time, then returned to their community where they earned a living and lived under the rules and regulations written and passed during their years of service.
Much has changed between the formation of our great nation and today. Fast forward for 200 + years and today we have life-time politicians, who make a career out of getting reelected. As they rise in their tenure, stature and power, they somehow loose their perspective on their role within the halls of congress, whether it be in the House or Senate. Massive pension programs, separate health care, extended support staffs, and unlimited junkets to various parts of the world, in the name of fact gathering create an aura of self importance & superiority.
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. They forget who they are and believe they are above the law. This occurs in both the Republican and Democratic parties.
I find Judicial Watch to be valuable source of the truth. And I believe this is extremely needed in today's fast pace, instant communications society.
I believe each elected and government appointed employee needs to be held accountable for their actions, while serving as our duly elected and appointment representative. After all, they are our representatives, paid by our taxes.
Judicial Watch provided a vital role in monitoring the behavior of all elected and government appointed employees. This is the least they can do for our great nation. Anything less would be a total failure.
