For several years I have been writing articles that some would call left leaning and I have been sent hate mail and even one death threat. What I want for America is probably not that different from any other average American Citizen. Our country was built on the building blocks of freedom, justice, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I served in the military and many people have served this country to preserve the rights that we sometimes take for granted. When these rights are taken for granted someone is going to find a way to take them from us if it makes them wealthy. Look what has happened to average American Family over the last decade it is hard to argue that greedy and crooked forces have stolen much of our wealth.
Greed rules the United States of America more now than any time in history and the average America is the one that is losing, not the Rich, not the Politicians, not the Executives of Corporations we are. I am talking about the 90 percent of us that are working and trying to make an honest living. We don’t need to fight each other and call each other names we need to stand up for what is right. It is our duty as citizens to start yelling at our leaders to do what is right for the people they serve, not the corporate executives, special interest groups or anyone else that lines their pockets with money.
We all need to unite as citizens of this great country before it is not a great country anymore. We are on the wrong track right now and there is not one single party that can or will save us. The Tea Party could have been a very good start if it hadn’t excluded most Democrats, but you have to give them credit for going after the Republican establishment as well. Unfortunately the movement was not unified and ended up being hijacked by the likes of Palin who was in it for herself and is too far to the right to attract a majority of Americans.
Action speaks so much louder than words and the Far Right Republican Politicians have made a lot of promises over the years but the truth be told the Republican Party is the party for the rich by the rich and controlled by the rich. Middle Class Americans, the backbone of our society has been drained of most of our wealth by the hands of Republican Politicians, their tax laws, corporate loopholes and corporate welfare. They are the party opposite of Robin Hood; they steal from the poor and give to the rich.
Before you nail me to the cross for the last paragraph the Democratic Politicians are no better. The middle class has done better during Democratic rule and as a majority the Democrats are probably more honest but we have to face the fact that they are WEAKLINGS! They let opposing parties get away with murder and never make anyone pay for their mistakes. The Bush Administration most likely committed some very serious crimes that they should have been held accountable for but the Democrats let them get away with murder. How can anyone expect to take a party seriously that has the backbone of a jelly fish.
If we wait for the Republican Party, the Democratic Party or any other party to do what is necessary to deal with our problems we are doomed. We have to educate ourselves, we have to respect each other, and we can’t let politicians divide us by turning us against each other. I think that many people are waking up now and the resentment shown in the last election was a sign that people are getting fed up with politicians who seek public office for their benefit, they need to be serving our benefit we pay them and they are civil servants.
I will tell you ahead of time that there will be many people that will attack my ideas because of my comments about the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and the Tea Party. That is exactly what the crooks want us to do; they want us to be fighting each other so we won’t notice how bad they are screwing us. Some of you will say there is nothing we can do it is already too late. We can’t give up we have to do what is right for our children; it would be criminal for us to leave this mess to future generations.
The first step in achievement is the belief in yourself and what you can do, no matter if it is providing for your family, taking care of your children or sick parents. We can do anything we set our minds to and Americans have proved time and time again that when we are united nothing can stand in our way. I didn’t write this article for any other reason than to get people to think about what is going on and what we can do to get our country back on track. I don’t think I am better than anyone and I sure don’t hate anyone because of their political affiliation or any other reason for that matter. I am sick and tired of seeing greedy people stealing the American Dream and I believe we need to discuss this respectfully instead of letting forces turn Americans against each other because that is the only way America can be destroyed.
