I love, love, love my country....but we have to admit, it is dysfunctional right now. Nothing seems to be working right. Nothing. And this goes
beyond parties...this is not a republican or a democrat rant...this is just a true statement. We have a lot of problems in our country right
now....it's very, very dysfunctional. When I say that, it doesn't mean I love my country any less, it just means that I notice that we have some
severe problems here....and I'm wondering if the country can stay together through all this?
Maybe I'm like a kid who sees their parents fighting non-stop.....and I'm getting scared that they will break up. And maybe some of us are are like
older children in a dysfunctional family, who have seen their parents fight for so many years, that they just WISH they would break up, because they
can't stand the arguing anymore.
Actually, I think that metaphor is a pretty good one....we see our "leaders" (republicans and democrats) constantly fighting with each other,
instead of focusing on truly doing what is best for country....and we think....will they stay together? Just like parents lose sight of what's best
for their kids during times of their own fighting, we see our "leaders" so absorbed in their own need to win every argument, that they cannot see
what their fighting is doing to their country. And then, the arguing and fighting, and manipulations, and backstabbing goes on for so long....we start
thinking....God, when will it end? Enough, already! Just divorce, and get it over with!
So, I wondered if anybody else was feeling the same way.
Do you want the country to continue on like this? I don't. I'm tired of the partisan bickering, the corrupt politicians who can't see beyond their
own bank account, our leaders inability to do what is best for our country, instead of what is best for their party.
They say that money problems are the number one factor that cause divorce....are economic problems the number one factor that break up countries? We
saw it the USSR. We might see it in the European Union. Could we see it happen in the US?
Anyway, I'm just wondering...who thinks:
1. Who thinks our country is strong enough to survive these rough times?
2. Who thinks our country will economically collapse, due to the poor economy and/or the impact of natural disasters?
3. Who thinks our country will have another civil war?
4. Who thinks we will get attacked again, especially now that our troops are spread so thin right now, and end up in an all out world war again?
5. Who thinks we'll be forced to "merge" with other countries in order to survive? (i.e. one world government?)
5. Other ideas?
