Does anyone really ever stop and think of why we are in the predicament we are in, monetarily?
This country is bankrupt both morally and monetarily. We are doing exactly what the Soviet Union did before the breakup. We went into Afghanistan 16 years ago, supposedly to get Bin Laden. We are still there. If you recall, the Soviets did the same thing and got bogged down the same way we are now.
So the Union collapsed, and they got Putin. We have been there under 3 presidents, with no end in sight.
In the meantime, the Pentagon is bankrupting us. We now have 45, who knows absolutely nothing about diplomacy or military ways. Throws 2 million dollars missiles at useless targets and then buys more. The Pentagon and it's war-hawks always want more, because congressmen and women must keep the money flowing or they lose jobs in their districts and heaven forbid we stop programs that have outlived themselves!
We pass tax scams that only serve to widen the disparity between the rich and the poor, and then we try to pay for them by taking away the security of others who have no way of fighting back against a 2 party system that provides you with their selected candidates to choose from.
We are a foolish people when it comes to trusting our government to have our best interests in mind!
They are paid well to forget you exist, and they exercise that on a daily basis. They can placate you and tell you they are watching out for you, but they're not! They could care less about you except when it comes election time. Then they'll tell you all you want to hear and more.
I personally believe very few of them, but there are a few good ones. Trouble is, they're in the minority!
We need people who will stand up for their moral values, who cannot be corrupted by power. After all, you are there to perform a duty to the people who put you in office in the first place. You're not there to make yourself wealthy, although many do it! You're not there for a career, but to help your fellow man.
It's about time that a few more of you start to realize that and act upon it.
May peace be with you
