I think it’s amazing that people honestly think that the president is the most important person in our country.
They act like this one person can “SAVE US ALL!”
This is part of the deception that is occuring to the American people. We have the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Judges (not to mention the attorneys), the Secret Service, the FBI, the Police, State Governers, Mayors, local Judges, and sooo many other institutions and people who run this country.
They ALL make things better or make things worse. They either add to the corruption or they clean it up.
I suspect one of the reasons that people want to put it all on the President and pretend that it’s only going to take this one person to make it all better is that when the shit hits the fan they can use this person as a scape goat and pretend that it was all his/her doing.
When did the people of the United States lose the concept of responsibility?
Responsibility goes hand in hand with freedom.
When too many people want to give up their responsibilities and put it (and the blame) all on someone else’s shoulders, that someone else also gets to make all the decisions about you and your life.
Then we end up with socialism, communism, totalitarianism, etc.
Those goverments might actually be good and run by people who are honest and care. There have been plenty of kings, chiefs, and other tribal leaders who’ve done that, but on the other hand there are plenty who have not (examples would be Hitler, Stalin, China, just to mention a VERY few).
It can be a pretty risky thing to put your life in anothers hands. It can also save your life. It all depends on who’s hands you leave it in and if they are trustworthy.
I am strictly independent with no ties to one party or another. I like it that way. It keeps my perspective fresh and gives me a better view of who is worth trusting or not.
I’m at the begining of my “political career” and still have a lot to learn, but some things are glaringly obvious to me.
I know best how to run my life, so I don’t support anything that’s socialist. I know enough people who have come to the U.S. from socialist countries to hear first hand accounts about how that sucks.
I absolutely detest what the Republican and Democrat parties have become. They are destroying our country.
I think America needs to wake up and face that fact that our country has gone to pot because of us the people!
Too many people don’t want to face the fact that politics, laws, and regulatory bodies have a large impact on our lives, and if we want things to be different we have to participate. They think it’s just another chore. When actually it can be a pretty cool responsibility that can create fun friendships, a sense of accomplishment, and make the world a better place.
This all seems like common sense to me.
I think the trouble for a lot of people is that they don’t have the right resources and don’t know how to get information that is factual, so it all feels overwhelming. So they just let it slide.
And then there is the fact that people become incredibly histerical and jump all over each other. I’ve even seen fist fights about to start over party lines and politics. It’s insane!
What happened to talking out our opinions? We don’t have to agree, but we don’t have to kill each other over it either.
Even if two people have VERY different views, if both those people are involved, then things will most likely come to a pretty good middle place that’s not to bad for either side.
The world has shrunk too much for us all to run to a “new world” either so we had better start dealing with it. The sooner the better! 🙂
It can only help us all to get involved instead of let “the few” be running the show.
Let’s all quit yelling at each other, step up to the plate (isn’t baseball fun after all?), and teach each other what we know. Then we can come to the truth of the matter, have a bigger picture, be better able to tell when politicains are lying, covering up info, or spreading propoganda too! Wouldn’t that be great?
I think so.
