It’s beyond frustrating when people think they have all the answers, especially when it comes to politics. I have been watching more and more people express their political views online, and two things come to mind. First is, that many of these people don’t talk that openly about politics off line, face to face, but they feel a comfort to do it online (just an interesting tidbit). The second thing is, those people that like to place blame on one politician or one party for all the troubles we face.
When Bush was President you had people on the left crying about how he was a devil and he was destroying our country. Now, with Obama in office, you have people on the right crying out about how he is evil and is trying to destroy our country.
Really? You think either man hates America? And beyond that, hates America enough to want to tear it apart? How foolish, how ignorant, how disappointing.
I do not think there is a single politician in Washington that hates America, however, I do think it is the fault of these same people that we are in the boat we’re in. It’s not a matter of hating America, because I don’t think they do. It’s not a matter of this party is evil or that party is evil. The problem is this…they (all of them) do not compromise, they (all of them) will not stop the bickering and name calling, they (all of them) are more concerned with their own bank account rather than solving America’s issues, they (all of them) are afraid to make REAL changes due to possible backlash, they (all of them) are so caught up in the status quo that change is impossible…they (all of them) don’t have the balls to make that “impossible” change.
Why don’t we the citizens stop doing what they do, which is argue and bicker over dumb ass points? Let’s look for common ground, compromise, and most of all, let’s stop blaming one man or one party; we know damn well it is the collective group that is driving the bus, not one.
