According to DMX and the Lox, "Money, Power, Respect, is the key to life......."
Or as Tony Montana would say, First you get the money, then you get the power, once you get the power, then you get the girl....
This has been engrained into our minds through every, media outlet, pop artist, movie actor, and even parents (in some cases), since we were young. I
am 26yo, and I can't think of one friend of mine that doesn't think he is a failure because of his/her dwindling bank account. I hear it all the time,
"my parent's had x and x amount of dollars saved at my age...or, they already had a mortgage and property in their name." etc.
We were raised to think that owning a house and having the ability to save cash, was the key to success and ahppiness. Yet, we have hit the job market
at the worst possible point since the great depression. Our cost of living vs. our income levels doesn't allow for anything but living paycheck to
paycheck. And that is with a four year + degree and good jobs with reputable companies. To many times do I see young people blaming themselves for
their woes, when it is a circumstance that we have no control over.
The time for change is here, but no more of this Obama garbage. It is time we elect an official that trully stands behind his statements and knows how
to make it happen. Ron Paul for 2012!
