First off, let me be totally transparent, a quality which our government could use a huge dose of, by the way.
I am a liberal democrat, because I believe in people before profit.
Democrats talk about the things that matter to me, Like the environment, the people down on their luck, Human rights, etc.
But here is why our current system really sucks.
I am also a conservative, and, probably even a Neo-con, if I dig deep enough. I believe a man should work hard, that family is extremely important,
and that we should keep our guns.
Our political system is so very polarized, that not even good ideas can get through the name calling, dissention and back biting that happens every
day on Capitol Hill.
Political Parties are unable and unwilling to LISTEN, and we have become so very lazy as a culture, that we have to polarize OURSELVES in order to be
able to sleep at night with the sense that we are fighting the honorable fight.
Every single member of Congress and the White House are FORCED to lie, because they know that, even if totally logical, correct, and beneficial, there
are certain topics and legislation that their 'constituents' (Also Known As Political Action Committees) will not let them vote for.
What has our country come to that WE allow such a travesty to take place in the most important and prestigious institutions in our great America?
This is our fault, you and me.
And We, the people, are the only ones who can fix it.
How do you feel about it?
