I agree with 90% of what you introduced in your thread. I too believe that revolution is inevitable, although I do not know how long it will be before
blood is shed. I just hope that the people do not let the government go as far as taking their right to bear arms away...Because then the revolution
will be even more bloody and savage.
This government that masquerades as a republic, or democracy, is mainly driven by greed. Maybe it is hard to see on the surface, but underneath, greed
and selfish want of power reign. This is why there will be a revolution, because a system that perpetuates this behavior can only last for so long.
The class antagonisms will only continue to increase, and things just will not get better, because the only way for that to happen is for human nature
The truth is that "honest" people, who truly care about the country and the people is an extremely rare thing when it comes to politicians, for the
most part. This is because most of those who want to become involved in politics do so for personal gain, as those who really and truly care just do
not have the heart to do what they will be pressured to do in office, amongst other things that would go against an honest person's character.
Basically the majority of our politicians are sociopaths...
That isn't the only problem however. Our government is too large, for one thing, which just makes things more difficult for everyone, since none of
these different branches and sectors communicate. Our "capitalist" system has turned out to be something it was never supposed to be. The government
was never supposed to be allowed to give powers to the FED like they have, and that organization should never have even existed.
Politicians are not held accountable for what they promise on the campaign trail, therefore you tell me how voting for someone means you are being
represented honestly and fairly in this republican government? You vote for someone thinking they share your views, and then they go and vote exactly
the opposite. The government should prevent this.
They should also prevent conflicts of interest, ie between the corporate and political worlds. Nothing good can come from that relationship for the
people. Corporations and other predatory capitalists, since they are technically a "person", need to be strictly regulated for the benefit of the
American people. People whine that the government should leave their big business alone, but that is only because they want to continue screwing the
population out of their hard-earned money...They make money on the same money over and over again.
I could rant all day, but the point is that I agree with the majority of what you said, and there is so much wrong with this country that people
either ignore, or don't know, and the only way it can end is in revolution, because it would be next to impossible to loosen ourselves from this
stranglehold that has been put on us in a legal way, e.g. through congress. Haha, that's just funny to think about. It's also a huge coincidence
that almost every member of congress was making oodles of money during a down market, while the majority of the population was sinking.
Wall Street needs to be regulated as well, but as I said, it will never happen because there will always be people who are so callous that they have
no problem exploiting other people for their own personal gain. That's why this "democracy" will end in revolution. They tell you that you are
free, but you are not, and most do not question that. Go read from philosophers like Locke, Hume, Aristotle, etc, or even the US Constitution, because
that is what was intended, for the most part, for the USA. The Constitution is not supposed to show what rights the people have, but it is rather to
restrain the government, giving deference to the people themselves. This has been turned on us, and is just another drop in the hat.
