There are some people who have gone way over the top when it comes to which party puppet is president. Apparently, you feel that there is a definite
difference between a democratic president, and a republican one.
I do not feel that way anymore. To me, it didn't matter which of them got to be POTUS, the end result will be the same. The days of us having a
principled leader taking us in a direction that is good for the country is OVER.
All the people within different states starting up petitions for secession are not because Obama became president, as there are some blue states
involved in this movement. My take on this particular phenomenon is that people are just so very sick and tired of the insane overreach of the
federal government. For example, a state will approve something that the feds say is against their laws. The feds will go in and bust people who
feel they are doing something lawful. We have a total disconnect between state's rights, and what the people in each state want, and what the feds
The way the feds are doing business, you would think that we're just one big territory, and there are no state laws. Yes, I understand the argument
that fed laws trump state laws, but why should this be so?? We have more people in prison in this country than they do in China. Our only growth
industries left are prisons, law enforcement, and health care.
No matter if one says they're on the right or the left, that automatically creates a divide, which, more and more, cannot be breached. I know that
you're a Democrat, and that is your right, but don't be surprised by the intense division and hatred that is being lobbed back and forth across the
chasm. It's been brewing for a long time, and has reached a fever pitch.
I want nothing to do with either party. I dislike them both, for the problems they have created and then failed to fix, for the give-aways to the
federal reserve cabal and the big businesses, for the complete corruption and deceit when it comes to things like public health, the FDA, the EPA, the
USDA, the CDC, etc.
As far as I'm concerned, our government is rotten, corrupt, and gone completely rogue. Trying to patch things up and pretend that we're all fine
and dandy isn't going to cut it. We have reached a point of awareness which, to many, creates such cognitive dissonance that they cannot handle it.
Some go over the edge, like your family member. Thankfully, I went through it years ago, was depressed for about 6 months, and then decided that the
best I could do is to try and prepare for whatever crap and nonsense the government will next come up with.
My own personal opinion, and that's ALL IT IS, is that both parties have destroyed this country, and are nothing more than two sides of the same
coin. Obama will not take care of those who need help the most, just as Clinton was the one who cut welfare (used to be AFDC, now is TANF). It's
not a party thing, it's a corrupt government thing.
The people who want out of this insane asylum are speaking out. That's all that is going on. We're tired of the lies, the nonsense, the partisan
bull crap, and just want it to STOP.
I respect your opinion and always enjoy your posts, but I'm having trouble with the partisan aspect of this particular thread. Just wanted to throw
in my two cents, long and drawn out as it is.
Thank you for reading.
