Post your opinions here. My weekly rant.
Why does everyone assume that just because GW has donned this war horse and is trying to triumphantly conquer the Iragi people that we are any safer in his hands than anyone else’s? How has he proven this? Why do you assume that because he takes away your liberty and hands you all these security prerogatives that things will be any better? They’re just clever ways of gaining control over the populace. It all amounts to power. More power in the government, which as far as I knew, the republicans were traditionally against ‘big’ government, opting instead for more state control. Where did these ideals go? And why does every speech from Bush turn into scare tactics. Like he’s the only President that can send troops to harass other countries? Kerry is more than capable of sending troops anywhere on the globe if the situation warrants it. How is he any more adept at protecting us? Just because he’s a megalomaniac with a dictatorship in mind doesn’t mean you should sleep any easier. Bush wants governmental power and more of it. He skips the real issues that real Americans should be concerned. He talks about terrorism to the masses scaring them into their vote, while the real threat to our country is him and his economic proposals. What about all the stupid proposals that he’s trying to get through that benefit the ‘elitist’ class of the American society as if shrugging off the common man will turn this country into something great. This country runs on the sweat of the middle class and every d*mn thing he comes up with becomes a burden to them. I have no problem with jobs leaving the country as we build a stronger global economy, but to totally ignore the issue or to say that ‘the working class has enough money’ is outright insane. Why all this propaganda? Why can’t his regime be honest with the American public and just say that the only reason we’re in Irag is for the black gold? Is that so hard to say? Will the Iragi people ever benefit from the oil? No. Will the average American ever benefit from the war in Irag? No. Will the ‘elitists’ benefit? Yes. And why the flip flop on the drug issue with Canada, Bush? Why is it okay now that you’ve seen the response to Kerry’s idea of it? I’m not for a social healthcare system, but why do American drug companies charge Americans more for prescriptions than their foreign counterparts? That’s ridiculous. Why? Because they know they have us by the balls, and they can d*mn well charge what they want for it. There should be a cap on profits for prescription drugs. There’s no reason why your average person should get raped to get better. Don’t give me any sh*t about that as there is no excuse for it. I have nothing against capitalism at all, but when it infringes the rights of sick people is where I draw the line. No one should have to be denied wellness just so Merk can make 5 billion dollars this year instead of 2. These are the real issues. I don’t give 3 sh*ts about Irag. Fix my country d*mnit and then we can fart around overseas trying to solve the worlds issues. Medicare and social security are billions of dollars in the red with no end in sight and we’re exporting jobs faster than the foreign countries can fill them. So how are we supposed to close the gap? You can’t. If people don’t work, they don’t pay taxes. So where does that end up? No social programs. I’m not counting on social security myself, but what about all the middle class workers that don’t have another option. Are we supposed to just forget they exist? The country cannot run in this condition for long. Ignoring the issues doesn’t make them go away. The country will be crippled if things don’t change. You can’t ignore the working class American citizens. The sad fact is, is that they’re the only people that believe in Bush’s scare tactics campaign so he’s got them coming and going. What a shame.
I'm done ranting.
