At the rate American Politics are headed we are all in for disaster no matter which party is in power. We have seen the results of the Far Right during the Bush Administration basically allowing Corporations to have their way with as long as they paid to play. Some Democrats were just as bad, 10,000 dollars in your freezer, that’s a cool investment. The Republican rule proved to be disastrous except for the rich, they did very well at the expense of the middle class and the poor which have fallen further behind and have less now than they did since the Great Depression.
The Bush Administration started the bailout of the Fat Cats that almost destroyed the average Americans financial stature. Obama has tried as hard as he can but the Republicans started out on day one to destroy him. Granted he does have his hands full and it’s almost a miracle he has survived the problems passed down to him. The far right would love to see Obama fail but I think he will end up letting them down and do fairly well.
We should have let some of these banks fail or at least put the crooks behind bars instead of letting them collect millions of dollars for running companies into the ground. Let’s face it we are not Democrats or Republicans we are pawns being distracted by the corrupt political, corporate and the media machine. The United States isn’t a capitalist nation it is a Corporatism nation ran by corporate tribal leaders (CEOs) somewhat similar to the Taliban who leave out the violence for the most part, unless you count Backwater.
Obama crawled from the bottom to the top and Bush rode in on his father’s name but some say he was genuinely concerned with the plight of the American people. Bush took the advice of his far right staff and ended up pushing this country to the brink of disaster. I don’t believe Bush tried to leave the country in the shape he did but those who surrounded him didn’t care.
The biggest criminal of this century is no doubt Dick Cheney. Cheney broke international laws and admitted it with no remorse. Rumsfeld headed up two wars with no exit strategy. and then we have the players like Sara Palin, Keith Olbermann, Boehner, Pelosi, Karl Rove, Wall Street CEOs, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the majority of Congress. Even the Supreme Court got into the act by giving Corporations rights guaranteed to individuals. Some of these individuals deserve to be demonized and some don’t.
Then you have the Republican game plan created by Carl Rove called Swift Boating, now our children don’t know who the real heroes or if there are any good public servants. In today’s political culture the more you are demonized the greater chance you are a good honest public servant. The Democrats have decided to use Swift Boating this election cycle after years of complaining about the Republicans using this tactic. I guess if you can’t beat them join them no matter how bad the consequences. Our news organizations and especially Fox News is another entity that is not good for America, if you have to say you are not a liar you probably are one, if you have to spend millions to advertise that you are “Fair and Balanced” you’re not, get real and quit drinking their poison.
Most of the Tea Party Leaders are just as hazardous to our country as the thief’s steeling our pensions in the middle of the night. The Tea Party has some good ideas; some of them would have really helped when the last administration was in office while the Republicans were spending money like drunken sailors. Come on tell the truth, you just have a grudge against Democrats and especially this President and any intelligent person would have to agree that the Tea Party is just aimed at Democrats not some true core conservative fiscal policy. Then the Democrats have Acorn and MoveOn.org both organizations with some checkered pasts but no spin machine is better than Fox News because they have convinced some intelligent people that they report the news in a fair and balanced fashion.
The Tea Party is so upset about the deficit; I still want an honest answer and not hyperbole about your noble intentions when the last administration was running up the deficit. Where were you when thousands and thousands of people were killed for a war justified by lies? Don’t give me that lame excuse that the Democrats signed on to the war in Iraq either, they were fed the same lies as the American public. Then you act like you have on lock on Christianity and make cruel statement like “At least the killing is happening in someone else’s country.” how hypocritical that’s not being Christian.
We need to stop listening to the media and the misinformation being tossed at us. The citizens of this nation need to understand that the media sensationalizes news events to up their ratings. We need to draw our own conclusions and use our brains because we are just as smart as most of these people running the government your just not near as crooked and greedy. I don’t care if you are a Republican or a Democrat we are all neighbors, friends and above all citizens of the same country, don’t let these crooks divide us for their political and financial gain. Let’s unite because we care about our country, about each other and about our children and all of those who will follow.
We do need to drill but our priority should be to end our dependence on fossil fuels. If we had the courage, the wisdom and the expertise to send men to the moon why can’t we set goals to end our dependence on foreign energy resources that are costing us billions of dollars and untold amounts of pollution? We can do it but we have to get past the corruption of the corporations and the politicians that can’t see past their next quarterly earnings or campaign contribution statement. We can do anything we set our minds to as long as we weed out the greed that stops us.
It is time to break the through the corruption that has ran the American Political Culture for the last fifty years and insist that our public servants serve us and not British Petroleum, Brown and Root, Halliburton, Chase Bank, Morgan Stanley and all of the rest of the crooked companies that are destroying our lives and our nation. We can’t let them fool us into believing that our fellow citizens are the enemy because they are a Democrat or a Republican, we need to throw those labels in the trash.
They want us to fight each other so we are distracted all the while they sneak around and steal us blind. Why we are arguing which party is the best there is corruption in both parties. We need to wake up and quit listening to these crooks! We need to stand up against them and stand up for each other and not some political motto that lets the crooks continue to screw us while we are busy praising our party and criticizing the other. Currently the majority of us are puppets playing the game that the crooks want us too. Reach out to your friends and neighbors’ no matter what their political affiliation and say loud and clear we are FEED UP and DO WHAT is BEST for our COUNTRY and don’t do it with a tea cup in your hand, that’s juvenile.
We have to become responsible citizens and caretakers of our country and dismantle pay for play once and for all. The few honest politicians don’t have a chance as long as we all have the wool pulled over our eyes. People think about your actions, if you are part of slime political organization you probably have been brainwashed. Do you really want to hurt someone because they were brainwashed by a different party?
Don’t repeat the garbage you hear from the media, reach out and talk to your neighbors about what you believe in and listen to them and you will find out that most people agree on the fundamental issues but we have been led to believe the other side is the problem, there is no other side. It isn’t the political menu you have ordered or the other side causing the problems; it is the crooked politicians and corporations that only care about stealing your money and corporations paying for laws that allow them to get away with profiting at the expense of our future.
