What is the answer (by no means am I being a smart a-s)? We know the problems and the concerns but all we do is talk about them, bring them to light
and then go to work the next morning.
The frustrating part is not knowing what to do.
Seriously, what can we do? We have 2 senators running for the highest office, and mind you, while financial institutions are being bailed out (hey,
why not bail out a hard working American citizen, right?) by our government, we have some troops in combat mode overseas, we have homeless people in
America, we have high gas prices, we have outsourced our jobs, oh yea - have you seen our countries deficit and how much we owe China? To my point,
why aren't these two senators truly working on their duties as a Senator. You know, being a Senator is a very powerful office, wouldn't you say?
They have teams of aids and supporters, why not double task and get something done and not focus on the presidential race. Yes I did say that, the
senator who leads by example WILL get my vote. The senator who just talks about what they will do when they are president (mere rhetoric), then I
will have to just write in Ron Paul's name in when I vote, seriously...
Multitudes of people have voiced their opinions and concerns on many, many forums, blogs, videos and social network sites, but nothing gets done. The
powers that be, truly choose not to listen. Yes call it what ever you want, BIG BUSINESS owns our country - the media owns our country and so on.
But we, the people who go to work the next morning everyday can actually do something, or can we? Personally, I like to believe that "we the
people" do have and are the "Greater Voice"!!
Question to answer:
I am sick and tired of watching our country just slowly degrade, well that's how I feel. And to be truthful, I am usually a happy go lucky kind of
guy. I am grateful for all that I have.
But I have four boys and I am concerned for their future in this country.
I don't know if:
-We have Goverment cover ups?
-2012 is really a bad or good thing?
-Gas will ever be really affordable again?
And all of the aforementioned topics are truly interesting and I enjoy a good read... And I am always asking myself at the end of a blog - forum -
story, "What if it is real?" That's why I like this site.
I am amazed and have curiosity about most topics on this site.
But back to my question
What can actually be done to convince these ego minded powers that be, that they are in office because of our vote - and we want something done NOW
with gas prices - outsourcing - war - DEBT - jobs - economy and everything that concerns us - THE PEOPLE). And if you choose to move slow, then your
OUT as a leader, simple.
What happens to a Major League pitcher if he keeps sucking after a while - he is benched and traded. Same should be with our leaders. THEY NEED TO
BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!
Sorry people for my verbose thought... The original post inspired me just a tad...
Again, any ideas what can be done to change things? We really can't depend on a single person - we need a GREATER VOICE which is US, we are THE
