Well, here we are, Election year 2012. Amazing how time flies by, isn't it?
About this time four years ago: Gas(petrol) was getting close to $3/gal; unemployment was atrocious, the national debt was an appalling $10 TRILLION; the housing market was as shaky and calamitous as a rope bridge over a volcanic pit seething with molten earth; We had a clown in the White House, and everyone knew who the winner of the upcoming presidential election would be: ANOTHER CLOWN.
(With tongue in cheek) My, my, isn't it wondrous how much things change(stay the same) in such a short(dragged out) period of time? ;-D
Take a look around you friends. No. Seriously. Take a good, hard and honest look at the country today and tell me what you see....
I'd be willing to bet that the USA where you live looks, unfortunately, alot like Zucotti Park after the NYPD finally forced OWS off the premises. If it's anything similar to my reaction, you're probably screaming "W.T.F."!!!!!!! in your head right about now... And, like me, you're probably wondering how it all got like this.
I wish there was someone else for whom to blame this huge mess on, but I already know THAT endeavour would, indeed, be fruitless.
You see, friends, we can't JUST blame Barack Obama, or Nancy Pelosi. We can't place all of the blame on Harry Reid or even Steny Hoyer. Although I would bet that most of us wish it were that easy.
There isn't many of us who, at the of the day; Feel that it is even within the realms of our personal responsibility to our country to even attempt to make a personal obligation out of upholding and defending the ideals and guidelines set forth in the U.S. Constitution.
But think about this: What if? What if? What if just 10 percent of us immediately started doing something proactive to make a measurable positive change within our country?
What if we stopped bitching at our wide screen LCD T.V.s and instead told pretty much any congressperson right to his or her pompous, traitorous face just how badly they're f√¢|<ing up our country while also failing epically in THEIR OWN duties to uphold and defend the constitution?
What if we stopped just agreeing and/or comiserating with Limbaugh/Hannity/Savage and started a Nationwide petition for an IMMEDIATE recall of (Insert name of politician-corruption, of course, is already implied.)?
What if, rather than just admitting to the sales solicitor for the local newspaper that you're keeping their freebies and storing them as a backup for toilet paper-just in case you run out; You were to also start a nationwide campaign calling for the immediate arrest and prosecution of all those individuals who raided the social security "UNTrust DEFund"
My point, is quite simply this: If We the People don't immediately begin to take serious, thoughtful, and immensely positive steps to change the course of this country away from imminent disaster, Then this beautiful country will, indeed, perish.
So you're pissed off? Great. What do you plan to do about it? Are you ready to fight?
