I have read all the posts in this thread, and found that most are thoughts I have had and feared for sometime now.
There are those of you who quote or retell History quite eloquently, and the intelligence of those (most anyway) posting is evident.
With all that I have read and know,I still do not know one thing...what am I to do? Do I move out of the country? Do I stand and fight greed in its purist form ? If so how? How do I keep my gas tank full? And my children from starving? When there are only so many hours a day that you can work and at the end of that day you are still living not week to week but minute to minute, what do you do?
I am a wife and a mother of 4. We work hard, have no credit card debt (thanks to my husband believing in always paying with cash) we do not splurge or live a lavish life style. We have no insurance, but do not qualify for assistance. We have a daughter with extreme health issues that put us in the ranks of those whom lost their homes to foreclosure.
What is most alarming about all of that is the sad fact that we are not alone in our boat...I look to my left and to my right and there are families just like mine and worse off struggling every day and for what?
For our government to tell us "its all going to be ok" ?
HOW is it all going to be alright?
We The People see whats wrong , the rest of the world sees what is wrong, we all talk about what is wrong...thats on the table.
What I want is some kind of idea of what it is WE, you, me the guy next door and his family...WHAT SHOULD WE DO ? or more to the point.. What CAN we do?
Everything in my being tells me to not give up, I`m stubborn that way and my Faith in God won't let me just give up. But I have run out of ideas of what to do next, what to cut out of the expenses, how to tighten my already tight budget...
I KNOW it is only going to get worse, and I KNOW that our government could not care less, I am an uncounted statistic.
What I do NOT know is what to do now....if you have a realistic clue..please do share because I`m tired of all the stuff I know..I want to learn something new & helpful.
