It amazes and disturbs me to be witness to the incompetent, behavior of our elected government officials, from our President right on down. I don't just mean the present officials, I mean the majority of the past ones too. Hitler was right when he stated "Make the lie big and stick to it long enough, and they will believe it." If our President or any other Politician claims to be working for the good of our country, then they are lying through their teeth.
I've never seen so much back stabbing, cheating, bickering, corruption, and back sliding take place in my life. It seems to me that it would be impossible to actually accomplish anything with a desirable outcome under the present circumstances. The sin of it all is that nobody seems to think that time is running out for our great nation. We're just not the United States of yesteryear. We've evolved into a crumbling, sinuous, pitiful collection of some of the stupidest humans on this earth.
I understand the reality of our two party democratic system with different points of view on either side. The general idea is that the two parties, disagreements and all should be working together as as a single unit for the good of the nation and the people. This is not happening.
As the rich-poor gap widens drastically daily, it's pretty obvious to see through the brick wall, not to mention the writing on it. Wealth and Power go hand in hand. Wealth and Power in with the intent to create a positive environment for our country and world would be ideal. The problem is that along with Wealth and Power, Greed is spawned. Greed, puts the whole equation in a completely different light and consequence.
If we had a system of voting in where my actual vote really counted for something, it might be different, but we don't. In today's world, the people who possess Wealth and Power, get elected by the people who control the Wealth and Power, and those people are better known or identified as Corporations. The Corporations control, well, everything. They not only control everything, but their main objective is derived from one thing only: The almighty Bottom line of Profit. The Corporation has become a created Monster that cannot be controlled any longer or stopped. Our laws, our elected Government officials are all controlled by the Corporations.
The real crux of the matter is that the Corporations, in their greed, can't see the forest for the trees. They simply exist for themselves. It matters not how they achieve their end results, only that they achieve it. In the case of our country, the Corporations use the Government to enact the laws to benefit the proliferation and scale tipping irregardless of the consequences to our country and the American people. Most jobs are now outsourced out of our country only to profit the Corporations and weaken our economy.
Our so called elected officials are too busy behaving as children to even realize that our country is about to fall so hard and fast that we won't even know when we will hit the bottom of the abyss. If you thought the Civil War was bad, you ain't seen nothing yet.
So, as you sip your nightly cocktail while watching the nightly news, on the commercial breaks which are only campaign attacks, you might consider some of what I just tossed out. It's coming, just as sure as the nose on my face.
