Politics as Usual
I really found myself getting involved with politics when Jack joined the marines and went over to Afghanistan and Iraq to fight in the U.S.'s war on terror. I was all for the Afghanistan invasions after 9/11. What American wasn't? Go hunt Bin Laden and get payback for the Towers falling and the lives that were lost on that day. Iraq on the other hand.. I wasn't too sure on. The whole Weapons of Mass Destruction scare didn't really scare me too much, mainly because I never saw the thing! So I found Bush as a little shaky. Then came Obama with his "Change" in 2008, and in my opinion nothing's really changed except these gas prices. I must admit that I was excited to see a person of color (he's not black, he's a mixture) become the President of the United States though.
I don't think we will ever see change in this country. As long as we have Congress and their non bi-partisanship, we can never expect this country to be great again. I consider all politicians corrupt until proven not corrupt. They put their personal interests ahead of country's best interests and the common citizen such as myself reaps the consequences. Politicians from both parties make decisions based on how they will be perceived rather than making decisions that are always right. This is what frustrates me!!!
I've never been the type to argue with someone over politics. If someone has been thinking one way all of his or her life, its going to be hard to sway a person with one conversation. Instead of arguing, I just make observations. I respect anybody that thinks on their own. That means anybody that isn't following the path that mommy and daddy laid out for them. Anybody that doesn't regurgitate what they hear on Fox News and MSNBC. I mean a person that listens to the facts and bases their opinion on those facts. I don't respect single moms from trailer parks that just paid for her groceries with food stamps and then hops in a vehicle with a Nobama bumper sticker on her back. FOOL, DEMOCRATS ARE THE REASON YOU'RE ABLE TO ENJOY THOSE BENEFITS, & I don't respect black people that wear Obama T-shirts and can't even name things that he's doing that benefit them.
Republicans, Democrats, or Independents.
If your main issue is abortion, immigration, taxes, gun control, whether Obama is a U.S. citizen, or whether Bush was mentally retarded.
Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, or Others.
Its time for everyone to unite and make it happen for this great country that we call home!
God bless America,
