What Do We Believe Here at Telemachus?

This is not a website dedicated to being an “attack dog” on President Barack Obama’s policies.

Although it could be considered an attack dog on the inertia of Congress to deal with the major issues of our times.

This is also not a website dedicated to be an apologist and advocate for Republican policies.

What is there to be an advocate for since the GOP abandoned their core principles of small, self-government, balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility somewhere between 2000 and 2006, the time the GOP held 100% control of the White House and the US Congress?

This is an interactive site where people can get facts and figures so they can engage in the public debates over budget, taxes, and federal spending. There might also be a few tangential zigs-and-zags along the way pertaining to history, philosophy, religion and maybe a few sports analogies here and there.

We intend to present the cold, hard, stonecold facts with the links to sites to back them up so any person can become conversant in these complicated but very hugely important issues now staring us in the face as a nation, society and economy.

Before changes can be made, the citizenry of this nation have to become educated on the issues and don’t expect the politicians to “spoon-feed” the truth to you. They want you to believe “their side of the story” so you will keep voting them back into office again and again and again.

And look at what we have gotten as a result.

Albert Einstein supposedly once said, (but it can not be fully attributed to him so we are still trying to get the facts), “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Don’t you think we have been doing the same thing a couple of times too many by now?

Take a look at Telemachus, use it to get the pertinent facts and figures, subscribe and forward on to your friends, family and colleagues. Great things happen in American politics when people get educated and mobilized and then register to vote and actually vote.

  1. The actual quote (which is what I believe you meant to say) is "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result". Aside from that, keep up the great work!
