when will americans wake up.

Vote 0 Votes

when will americans wake up and smell the coffee ? im relatively new in politics . i have only been following for about 5 years now . im 37 , white , male , married , and have 5 kids . the one thing that i have come to believe since i have been following politics is that they are all the same . democrats , republican , left wing , right wing , center , moderate , or radical . all politicians are the same . they all get their money from the same places . they all pander to the people they think will get them elected , and when they are they always do what it takes to keep their big donors happy first . keep their pockets filled second . and keep their base happy so they can get re-elected third . they get us arguing and fighting amoungst ourselves about things that dont really matter like religion , gay rights , abortion rights , and who is doing what with who . things that most people wouldnt want other people sticking their noses in their business about . while we are busy fighting and arguing and debating about all these trivial things the politicians are busy getting rich , getting their friends rich , and conducting business as usual .

obama , bush , clinton , bush , reagan . these are the presidents i can remember anything about what they did in my life . and the one thing i remember is everything stayed the same or got worse for the average person , and no matter how different what they said was they all did the same things . i hope we wake up and realize that we are all getting screwed , and 99% of us will never be rich , and we need to stop arguing about the things that dont matter and make things better for us all . the way i see it is if we all get a little slice of the pie it would be better than a few getting big slices and the rest of us fight for scraps.

  • So you want the politicians to stop arguing about things that don't matter, and give you some money? Not to get too personal, but if you've got 5 kids, you're getting some pretty sweet tax deductions (Democrats call these subsidies).

    You've clearly explained your disgust with the Democratic republic system, but failed to enlighten us with a superior alternative. Should we go back to having a king?

  • i dont understand how anything i said could lead you to think i want the government to give me money . it is not disgust that i have for the system , it is disgust i have for all of us who let a broken system continue . i think it would be a refreshing change if we would all wake up . as i stated i am relatively new to politics and dont profess to have many answers , but i do think all of us voters voting for what would make our country better it would be a good start . when our representatives have to pander to the lobbies that give them the money it makes it impossible for them to do anything other than the status quo

  • of course i take the (subsidies) . that is one of the things i think they got right . a society can only be as good as the way it treats its poorest people . the richest people inthis country get the most and biggest (subsidies) and that isnt good for anyone. the midle class people who make up 80% of our populace have been squeezed until we are down to our last pennies . good working class families shouldnt have to struggle just to have a basic existence in the richest country in the world. we are fortunate enough to have been born in a country that is capeable of great things and we should all work together to make everyone better off.
