As I listen to politicians deliver their expertly written speeches, I cringe a little. I know that they have been slaved over, improved by a team of marketing geniuses and fine tuned to really carry the right message. Then I think, really? It has come to this? We are all just a market? Seems America is left with a bad taste in her mouth, for the most part. She has actually all but given up on politics (poly=many tics=bloodsucking parasites) and who can blame her.
I believe in this country and the documents that founded her, however, we have become something else. The tea party movement is so misunderstood-again with the marketing. It is pitched by its enemies as a far right leaning group of racists and homophobes. It is really a very large group of people that want to break away from the nonsense of politics as badly as early American transplants wanted to get away from the Brits. Our government was never meant to be a bunch of career politicians interested in big bucks, lifelong benefits and marketing specialists to help with each year's re-election.
I, like so many others, am sickened by the whole process. In fact, if they were not controlling the future of my country, I would join the MASSIVE amount of people who no longer vote.
This election, in particular, chills me to the bone. I have no love for either candidate. They both are in a different rich organization's pocket. So, I am gonna literally vote for the lesser of two evils. I will vote for the one who, at least, still seems to like our country and not just for her check writing privileges. The one who seems to still be willing to accept God in some form. The one that does not believe everything should be given over to the government(from each according to his ability) and then handed out to the more deserving (to each according to his need). I wish every one in favor of that would just go live in a communist country instead of trying to make us one.
But mostly, I am ready for a real change in our government. It is time for the common man to stand up against the political machine and insist we follow The Constitution and stop this insanity. I'm going to find Susan Powter and beg her to run with 'Stop the Insanity' as her campaign slogan. I probably don't agree with anything she believes...but that won't be any different that the crap I'm already being served up.
Powter in 2016!!
