Posted this over at N&P after being told I was a whiney lib who just needs to come over here :)
This was a rant I wrote out last night after a few glasses of wine. This is just how upset I am getting at this whole debacle we call government
Really, why hasn't the US said fuck it and started to kick Congressmen out of office? Dems, Repubs...anyone who hasn't stood by the American people and actually tried do their damn jobs?
I would love to see reform happen in the US. And the great thing about it, that reform is already drafted and in a safe place. It is called the US Constitution. Any right that isn't outlined there for our federal government isn't granted to our government, let the states take care of themselves and govern the way they see fit within their Constitutional guidelines as well. But take it a step further, term limits for Congressmen. No more career politicians who embed themselves so far into the system that they no longer care what happens to the people who pay them.
And don't stop at Congress. What about the Executive branch? Doesn't seem that much help or pushing is coming from that big white house in DC. Maybe it is time that the American people light a fire underneath President Obama's ass and tell him to put up or shut up. If you want Obamacare to pass so badly then push back the individual mandate and work with House Republicans to come up with a comprehensive plan that benefits Americans. Not the insurance companies or big Pharma but regular working people like you and I.
I am tired of being told by our President and Congress that the typical American needs to work harder on making America better. I can tell you this much right now, what would make America better is getting people into government who are there for the right reasons, to ensure that our once great nation perseveres and becomes great once again. Right now that doesn't include a majority of those sitting in office, collecting pay checks as how many people are looking at starvation.
That is my rant for the night. Honestly, America needs to wake up and realize that we are being used like fools. Our government doesn't think we will take a stand against them and demand them to do what we elected them to do. I just wish more people would see that instead of trying to figure out who to blame. Blame yourself America, maybe if you would have not just sat there and watched it happen things would be different.
