Americans are sheep
Seriously. They get locked into the whole democrat or republican thing and most of the time have no clue why. Ask the average American to explain their political beliefs and they stumble.
The two party system is out of date, and to be honest it's been a LONG time since we had a choice that wasn't the lesser of 2 evils.
Obama has gotten us to the point where we are like a family that has so much credit card debt that the minimum, interest only payment is more than the paychecks coming in. Yet they claim that the answer is to spend more money to fix it. Why is it so difficult to see how wrong that is?
The republicans are almost as bad, in different ways. There is so much intolerance of certain freedoms that I can't honestly say that I can support Romney except for the fact that he will be far less harmful than Obama to our economy.
Obama has spent more on programs that did nothing but line the pockets of unions and liberal supporters than has been spent on NASA in it's history. The space programs have benefits for all of us. The technology developed for these programs ends up in our hands eventually, and we all love being connected and having instant information.
It's sad to see valid libertarians being shuffled aside because they can't beat the two real parties. No one takes them seriously, yet they have had some valid ideas.
Here's my short wish list.
1. Piss test for people needing welfare and lengthy unemployment. I had to pee in a cup for my job, they can too.
2. screw the unions
3. flat rate tax
4. force the government to have a balanced budget, fiscal responsibility is secksi
5. return more power to the states, make them balance a budget too. If you can't afford it, you can't have it.
6. change the pensions we promise to government employees and big unions.
It's pathetic for them to think that they can afford to do that. Look at the post office, what a joke. Hold people accountable. Balance the budget.
Democracy isn't freedom people, it's two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is freedom, and it isn't free. The fix is going to be uncomfortable, and tough sh1t. I'm sick of seeing people texting on brand new iphones while they pay for sh1t with foodstamps.
Screw the 99%. That includes a LOT of lazy mo-fo's. I am the 53%, and we have jobs, pay our taxes and we're tired of paying for people to sit on their asses, doing drugs and making more and more babies they can't afford.
Hope and change my ass.
