The truth is we could extradite ourselves from this abysmal state of affairs even still, if we but stopped listening to and supporting the politicians
beholden to entrenched corporate agendas and rooting for them like they are football teams.
If we just got back to basic common sense government and listening to our better angels conscious wise and stopped insisting on being all things to
all people, and focused on being good at the basic things for our people instead of three quarters of the planet that really doesn’t want anything
at best but our cash, and at worst to kill us for butting our noses in, we could still turn our plight around and avert what is certainly a looming
Lone wolf politicians like Kucinich and Paul are the common sense, plain truth speaking people that really are in Washington to serve us and not the
entrenched corporate interests and the ruinous status quo.
The darn problem is we have gotten so focused on an enslaving notion of political correctness that half the nation can’t bear to hear the hard
truths or admit them and face that responsibility that comes along with it, that there own self destructive, dysfunctional thinking and actions are
half the problem, in some insane quid pro quo where special interest groups support these lunatic politicians and their entrenched corporate interests
in exchange for special considerations aimed at satiating their own corrupt needs.
If we just dropped the parties, and the special interest groups, that are exploited by the lobbies and corporate interests and simply united in basic,
rudimentary common sense approaches to our problems and sucked it up and hung tough through the cost of correcting our excesses, altering course,
rectifying them and reconciling them, we could move forward as a proud and productive nation again that could ensure liberty, prosperity and equality
and justice for all.
At this rate though paying trillions of dollars to terrorize nations like Afghanistan out of their natural resources and their own dignity and right
to self determination we are on a path to ultimate ruin.
It is so sad that the American dream and it’s lofty constitutional principles have turned out to be so short lived.
