People are tired of the same stale, standard talking points they always hear; whether it be from a politician, a Wall Street executive, an attorney, the news media, or anyone else you want to tag in there. There has been a major shift in our country due to the economy, the housing market, war, a sinking education system, entitlements, corrupt business executives and politicians, and so on. I guess my pet peeve is that “We The People” own this yet we can’t stand up together against this machine because we’re either too afraid, we don’t feel we can make a difference, we don’t want to lose our precious free time, or we’re out for our own individual special interest.
The best offense tends to be unity, and that is what we’re lacking. We each need to get involved through groups, letter writing, educating ourselves, and not bickering over things like party affiliations. Our politicians have been bickering for too many decades and that is the big story now. Pointing fingers is what makes news, not setting aside all the hype and compromising for real solutions. Democrats aren’t going away. Republicans aren’t going away. So we can either choose compromise and change, or we can continue the painful road we are all currently on.
