Political season is not going to end any time soon, and we can have debate after debate about socialism vs communism, social welfare programs,
healthcare, wars, the rich and elite classes, etc - But honestly it's not getting us very far. We can talk all day about how X candidate will be
better than Y candidate - But again, this is not going to get us anywhere. So, instead of talking about our differences, whether we are liberal or
conservative, for democratic socialism or capitalism, or any other arguments commonly seen here on ATS, let's talk about things we agree on - And talk
about what we can do!
Our current government sucks.
I think out of all topics, most of us can agree on this topic, I hardly know anyone who approves of congress, the POTUS, etc. Come to think of it, I
don't know anyone who's even on the fence- Even here on ATS, with all of the opinions from all different vantage points, I don't remember a single
post or thread even hinting that any one of our three branches of government are cared for or approved by any of us.
So, what to do?
Kick them out.
Every last one of them. Every congressman, every senator, every supreme court justice.
Too many have been in there for far too many years, with no real competition. We need term limits for all of these positions, we need new people in
all of these positions. We need men and women that aren't comfortable with how Washington has been running these last couple of decades.
I realize this is only a first step - But I honestly think it's a big one. If we demand that representatives... REPRESENT US. Things might start to
change. If we demand that the people in DC give us freedom, I think things will change. ( edit - NO ONE should be "giving us" freedom. We need
representatives that do not impede on our rights, not reps that believe they are the grantors of rights. )
Food for thought. Hope ya'll are having a good weekend.
