The American political system has been debated for many years now, while even its very structure shows obvious flaws. The idea of dividing a nation
into individual groups, each its own principles and methods, and declaring only one contestant permissible to seek it's objectives, is foolish in its
very concept. To not devise a system that assures all possibly beneficial ideas are applied, regardless of party, is crippling to our advancement. We
don't have Republican issues and Democratic ones, we have American issues only. There's no Liberal priorities and Conservative needs, only American
ones. We are one nation with only a single list of concerns. Debates should be held to prioritize that list? We are selling ourselves short to divide
that list and hold contest on which of our needs to leave out.
Further, we are now adding new divisions to our priorities. First was the Third Party, and now the Green and Libertarian Party? Does this serve one
nations needs? The answer to that is obvious and the only ones who fail to understand this are the very people being represented on the list itself.
Those that enter the contests know this very well. That is why time and again they work from a different list all together! Theirs is an agenda very
different than the one we eagerly split and argued over during the contests. Their list has none of the priorities from any of our divided list? They
already have us agreeing to leave out things from our one list by dividing it five ways and only choose one? Is one fifth of our list still too much
Apparently it is because every election may be different, but every term won results in the same old discussion later. The campaign is all about what
portion of our needs they will focus on pursuing if elected, but once elected, our list is ignored? Something always comes out of nowhere to create a
crisis that trumps our original agenda. Conveniently, turns our partial list of priorities on its head giving our hopes a back seat position yet
again. Over and over and over and over......
We fall for this every single time and, while we sit there being ignored, in stead of our newly elected hopefuls working things off our list, they
create pages of new issues to add to it. When will we learn that there is only one list in all their sights? There isn't five parties, but only one?
Our list is only there in theory. A tool for us to fight about and debate while they meticulously exercise their agenda. The agenda that was drawn up
long before they came forward to discuss ours. The next chapter in our nation that has nothing to do with our progression, but usually only the
opposite. We are being suckered out of a life we should be living, but will never even know. When will we understand this? How much abuse will it take
to make the majority see the blinding truth?
If we are so naive that we can't even see the injustice created by our divided party political system, we will forever be abused by someone. This has
gone on for many generations and may soon be worse than ever before? Maybe that's exactly what needs to happen to wake this country up? Hitting the
absolute bottom may end up the worst and best thing for this country? All I know is it can't go on like this.
Please, everyone that reads this, think long and hard about the Democrat and Republican system. Ask others to think of it also? Has it ever been
different? How many times have you griped about the person you voted for being useless? How many times have you heard others say the same? Over and
over and over....never changes and never been different! Please share any thoughts you have on how to stop this. Thanks for listening!
