but, .... what is Your answer to it all, neo.
If people want to change this countries leadership.
The first step is 'The people' changing themselves first.
Washington DC is a reflection of 'the people'.
They elect what they 'want'.
Doesn't matter who goes there garbage in garbage out.
I agree with that entirely!!
We, all too often, find ourselves bitching about those same things we brought upon ourselves, as a society with our wants, needs and desires to 'have
simply can't be.
there'll always be those who have and those who have not.
so. which side gets the greater voice, so to speak !?
in today's day and age it would most certainly seem the few that have tend to dictate to the many who have not.... what will be.
whether it be via campaign contributions, super-pacs, etc. they do.
they buy votes, politicians, people. left and right like there's no tomorrow.
despite the have nots being in the tenfolds of numbers, with regarsds the citizenry, they're voice isn't truly heard nor given a voice in things,
for the most part.
my biggest fear is when They Do .... because it's not going to be a pretty picture by the time it gets to that point.
lower hanging rats/fruit will have long-since jumped ship and taken up hospice within the ranks of the have nots.... they'll have been looted along
the way as well.
but after that, you have nothing left but the ultra/uber rich/policy makers...
and by that time they too will be looking for ways out of and/or away from the encroaching mobs of pleebs [or what they always thought of as such]....
not something i look forward to in any sense, but it would seem the inevitable, given the current pace, course and actuality of things.
'may you live in interesting times' ... would seem something that's gonna take on a whole new meaning for A Lot of folks in the near and/or coming
