hello there! and welcome. I guess I just have to get this off of my chest. I have seen a lot of other posts about this on this site, and still have
not come up with an answer as of yet.
so what I want to do, is collectively use this rant, to find a solution. I believe this site to have some very intelligent folks out there. I
alas, do not feel like one of them, but here it goes.
it really gets my goat that to be a civil servant is now a life choice. where else can you go, work for 4 yrs, and get paid for the rest of
your life. I feel that the politicians should follow the same rules that are imposed upon us. what makes them so superior to us?? do they not put
on there pants the same as we do?? the politicians are supposed to be in office for our best interest, not for selfish agendas.
the government is getting too big, and too corrupt to control by "we the people". so what are we to do? how do we fix it? I can only wish I
had the answer. sure people say make it count during the election. all said and good as long as the election is up and up with things. yes I
suppose that they could be rigged.. but now I am classified a conspiracy theorist. and ostracized for my beliefs.
I have to watch what I say now, for fear of offending somebody else, or I am labeled a racist or worse.
I am truly sorry, and feel for the young boys and girls who are going to inherit this mess.
so the question is what can we do?? a revolution is not the answer. is there not enough bloodshed of our young men and women already?? and as we
have talked as intellectuals on here already, it would be an outright bloodbath. no if ands or buts about it.. I am a proud veteran of this country,
and have taken an oath to protect and defend...every time I go to the V.A. you can see it in the veterans eyes, not just one,, but all vets there,,
almost a look of defeat. is this really what we are to do?? admit defeat? turn our guns in,, and say yes sir, please do not harm me. I will obey.
then I have to ask, then what?? if we are to be a complacent people, who will stop the government?
I am all for the world peace thing. but there has to be somebody controlling that as well, what happens when they get too big for there britches,
and cant take a whooping to get them back in line?
we have all felt the patriotic songs inside of us, when they play, and it makes me so proud. not anymore. usually I cry when I hear lee
greenwoods " I'm proud to be an American" I guess its because I am not proud anymore,, I almost feel ashamed...
I know I will probly get flamed for this post, and that's ok.. I am a big boy, and can handle it. this is my 1st post on here, and I feel a
pretty large one. I am by no means a scholar, or intellectual, just a beat up old vet who has lost the twinkle in my eye. so lets hear it ats'ers
what do or can we do now? thanks for listening!
