I think the entire populace is brainwashed in to voting and participating in a two party system. A two party system that rarely changes, if at all.
Wars still exist, rights are still awarded to us by fellow human beings no less. These same human beings determine what we can and cannot do. These
same human beings enact new laws in order to protect us, on a regular basis. There are now 600,000 laws currently on the books in the United States of
America. That certainly sounds excessive to me.
no matter what party is elected by the majority of people, whether it be the republicans or the democrats, they both pander to the corporations, they
both send Americans off to foreign lands to die in the name of freedom. In reality they are sent off to foreign lands to die in the name of greed.
They are both out of touch with the common people. They both awarded bailouts to the international banking firms, who turned around and awarded
themselves bonuses on top of their overly inflated salaries. They are both turning a blind eye to the thousands of Americans who have lost their
homes, They both want to see an end to unemployment benefits which would place thousands of Americans out on the streets, They all live lavish
lifestyles off of the backs of the American taxpayer who pay these people their wages, their benefits, and their retirement pensions. They all have
the financial means to pay for their own health care, as well as their families, while millions of American people can't even afford to purchase
health insurance. They have both played a role in the outsourcing of millions of jobs in America, as well as the decline in the manufacturing sector.
They have both played a systematic role in the near deliberate act of bankrupting the United States of America by invoking two wars in the middle east
that will more than likely never be won. In fact, the longer these conflicts exist, the worse the situation over there has become. The wars have
spread in to other countries such as Pakistan for example. Now they want us to believe that Iran poses a significant threat to our way of life.
Whatever our way of life even means for that matter.
Some states cannot even afford to provide their citizens with tax returns. Instead, they have offered them IOU's. Other states are closing down
schools and laying off law enforcement.
I mean, how could anyone truly still adhere to political partisanship, when it is so clearly evident that the democrats and the republicans have both
taken a bite out of America for the last several decades. And as an extra kick in the chops, they have used the media to their advantage in order to
ensure that Americans point their fingers at each other in blame and further the spread of division, anger and resentment throughout the country.
