Obama's a dictator... No, he's not... Yes, he is... No he's not... Yes, he is... That's essentially the gist of the conversation, so far?
I've seen comparisons to Hitler... I've seen him lampooned as some third world dictator...complete with self awarded medals...
The majority of American voters who could be bothered put him in office. Twice. Many of them seem to be regretting that... I regret it, too.
...and I didn't vote for him either time.
One group blames Obama. Another blames Congress. Blames democrats. Blames republicans. Blames some mysterious, yet unnamed, group... Unnamed?
That would explain the mysterious part...got it.
I'm gonna blame someone, someones actually...
ALL OF US.
Yep. All of us. The one's who voted him in, and voted in three congress critters, two senators and a representative from your particular
Whoooo hooo, you voted. Good thing. ...and feeling so good about yourself in the process, that you neglected the second part of that whole process.
Over sight. You need to watch the little darlings...'cause they aren't always the saintly good guys they portray themselves to be in the election
commercials, and pamphlets. Surprising, no?
We Americans, as a whole, not that we were ever any great shakes at it; have stopped, seemingly, doing anything even resembling watching them, or if
we do, doing anything about it... Yet we, without fail, squall like a cat whose tail got stepped on, when things go bad. But instead of actually
doing something about it...we get busy blaming the "other" guy. We lay the blame at the right feet, so far as it goes... But then we, as a group,
send the same ones back...time and time and time, again.
Really? ...and we have the gall to complain when these incompetent idiots who have screwed up repeatedly screw it up again... ...and we're
surprised!! Shocked, even, that they can't fix it!!
Really? Those of you who voted... Did you vote for the incumbent? Or did you vote for a new guy/gal? If the former, did you know his/her voting
record, or did you just vote for him/her because it's a familiar name? If the latter, did you vote for him/her for the ideas, or because he/she was
the "other" party?
My own reasons for voting virtually a straight Libertarian ticket was to help bolster the creation of a valid third party. Even if it isn't
Libertarian. It could be the Workers World Party, and I would support it's existence, if not it's ideals.
If you didn't vote? Shame on you. You're part of the problem, too. Though many of you will claim otherwise.
So... In your rush to find, and assign, blame? Save some for yourselves.
