The one thing holding us back in this country is Politian partisan. We can not truly progress until this process changes. I understand under our current system we are able to somewhat stop douche bags like George Bush from completely destroying our country. We would have been able to stop a lot of his agenda’s from becoming law, if we had a different system. We now have a President in office; who wants to advance this country; because of partisanship his hands are tied. This along with dirty Politicians is why our country is falling apart.

 This is a real issue, because we have Politicians in office who are not making decisions based off what is in the best interest of the people; instead they are making decisions based off the agendas of special interest groups. These special interest groups are lining Politicians wallets with huge donations to achieve their agendas. These corporations are directly responsible for fucking up our economy, and screwing the people who are the life blood of our country. They send our children off to war to die, so companies can make huge profits off government contracts. These decisions have caused our reputation around the world to be tarnished. This bullshit needs to stop!

 The Declaration of Independence and Constitution is supposed to protect us from a tyrannical government, and what I see is just that. The opening line of the constitution says “We the People of the United States, “not “We the Rich and Wealthy.” Our country has adopted a perverted form of capitalism, and laws which allow the rich to get richer, the poor to stay poor, and the decimation of the middle class.

 This country was established as a Republic for the people by the people, yet the people’s only say when it comes to new laws is based on what their elected officials believe is right. These elected officials are consumed with greed and self interest. I do not believe all Politicians are in it for themselves and agendas of big business, but their voices are muffled by a flawed system.

 The Declaration of Independence says we have the right to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” It goes on to say “That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their Powers from the consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it. These rights have been taken from us.

 We the people have the right to bare arms to over throw such a tyrannical government, but that will never happen even if we wanted to. Most people have little to no knowledge of our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, or even our Bill of Rights. It is the lack of this knowledge and the strength of our military and other government agencies which will never allow that to happen.

 The other interesting thing in our Declaration of Independence is the section where it lists all the things the king was doing to the colonies and how they were fighting to change this. Read these sections and you will see many of the things listed, are actions we as a country are doing to other countries. I am certain if our founding fathers were to see what we are doing abroad and here in our own country they would weep over how our country has become a perverted form of what it was meant to be.

My solution to this problem is simple, whenever a new law is brought up by representatives it should be voted on by the people. The people should be allowed to bring their own issues to the table as well to ensure the people are forming the country they want. America has sort of fallen by the wayside. Many countries place importance on their children’s education, because they know the children of today will be tomorrow’s leaders. This is just one example of how our government is screwing our children and its people. Please read the important documents from which this country was founded upon. As long as the People allow this to happen; we have no one to blame but ourselves.

  1. In theory, your solution sounds simple and straightforward. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t work as you intend.

    Why? Because as long as the big moneyed interests wield the most power and they control the media, they have the power to sway the public. Just take a look at the recent health care debate.

    At the beginning of the process, two-thirds of Americans polled favored universal health care. So, the special interests started writing editorials, running ads and creating the Tea Party movement. They threw around words/terms like “socialism”, “death panels” and “government control”.

    They muddied the water so much that many people began to lose sight of the main issue — health care. You look at the polls today and only 45-50% of the people favor universal access.

    And so it goes on issue after issue. Remember the “Swift Boat” ads against Kerry in the 2004 election?

    And you place no responsibility for anything on Obama?

    • Tim Lundmark says:

      I place blame on everyone involved. I am on board with most of Obama’s policys, but again they could be spun to make us believe it is different than what it really is. I am nuetral when it comes to political parties, but find my self leaning left on most issues
