This is just an open rant about the state of politics in this country today. I am more than willing to accept the backlash from an article like this too.
I read the vine constantly throughout the day. I also pay attention to a number of other websites and news rags and have been following, to varying degrees, the "stakes" in our current mid-term election season. I have read the opinions of the right and left, as well as the centrists. One thing is for sure, all sides are crying doom and gloom if their side loses the mid terms.
The doom and gloom are of course loudest (I feel) from the left with their claims about how the shit will hit the fan if the GOP wins control of the congress.
Well, my thoughts are: Let them. Let them win and let them do those things they want to do.
It seems as though the power of the GOP is waning somewhat lately and there appears to be a fracturing going on in the party. Yeah, I know, people have been saying this for years now….. that's not my point.
My point is this, people are pissed. People are out of work, they are hungry, they are frustrated and worse, a lot of them are bored. People are disagreeing, bitching and moaning, fighting about the dumbest things and blaming anyone they can for their problems, real or perceived.
So, since the GOP is so high and mighty on their horses right now and putting out their "Pledge" to the American people, I say, take control and do those things you are claiming you will do. Get yourselves in power and do all those "wonderful" things you are talking about doing. SHOW the American people what you are really made out of.
Because you know what! You are on stage now buster and if your shit doesn't work any better than the other guys and your plans do nothing but constrain government or halt progress altogether, every single American will see it and thanks to massive media saturation from TV and the Net, every single American will be able to see firsthand just how fool of crap are, have been and will always be.
Do it. Show Us. But you better make sure that the left isn't correct in their assertions of what will happen if you win control. Because, know this, if they are correct then the level of misery and suffering in this country will only increase (if not completely explode), the result of which is going to many tens, possibly a hundred+ million broke, out of work, homeless, starving people. A group so large, and angry, that no legislation or "pledge" in the world will stem that tide of hatred. And chances would be pretty high that that hatred will be directed somewhere.
Your party has had some good ideas in the past, I will absolutely give you that, and your parties successor will have some novel new ideas in the future. But you, my friends, don't seem to have a damn thing to offer the human citizens of this country anymore except strife, constraint, misery, uncertainty and "tax cuts" (which, personally, I think you enact in an effort to pay us off so we shut our mouths and buy new televisions and become too entertained to pay attention to what your really doing).
I know I don't speak for everyone, but I personally, am MORE than willing to put up with another year or two of crap in my life if the end result was one less obstructionist, self serving, corprotist bunch of pricks sitting in seats of power in this country. I have already spent a year unemployed, practically homeless and eating like crap since I couldnt really afford any better. How about you?
