Our government is corrupt, that is obvious. But if anyone believes it is only a democratic problem you are fooling yourself.
"~ It is a "We The People" problem. We the People elect these politicians to represent the will of the nation. When the politicians fail to do so, We the People continuously tolerate their dereliction. We the People have allowed the politicians, corporations and special interest groups to dictate our lives. We have given up our power and thrown away the voice of the nation in favor of letting the rich and famous set our policies. We the People have turned lazy and pampered. Our current situation is so extreme because We the People have let this go on for decades."
Corruption crosses party lines. All these bums are getting filthy rich off the common American tax payer!!!
"~ Agreed but the issue is not money. The issue is that our nation has turned into sheep. We allow a select few to dictate what matters to us. It's easier that way. More time to play a game on our phones or rally for something the NEWS redirects us to care about. What happens to your finances if you fail to manage them? We the People are failing to manage our government. This can only get worse. I think we need to lift our heads from the sand and start fixing the problem because it won't just go away if we do nothing."

Can't fix the problem when they don't enforce the rule of law.
" ~ Who writes the laws? We the People do not write the law. Those that write the law determine which laws are enforced. If there is any question about it - ask the Native American Indians. They have written so may special circumstances into the laws that the elite gain loopholes. Even the law that say you cannot kill have loopholes that are exploited. We the People need to step up and enforce the laws but those laws are so complex they fail to be equal and fair to all of the nation. This happened before and it resulted in a civil war. My question is, will it take another civil war to effect the changes our nation desperately needs? Are we smart enough as a nation to actually fix this problem without civil unrest? The powerful will do everything it can to remain in power. Our country has become a dystopian science fiction story, without the heroes or the unification."

Wrote a Facebook Status:
In September of 1882, Edison opened the Pearl Street Power Station in New York City. At that time, the company had the power of ZERO votes. It did not influence the fate of the American people in politics. Today, We the People allow mega corporations to not only affect our elections but also influence laws and legislation. They still have the power of ZERO votes but we have given them power over us anyway.
As a citizen of The UNITED States of America, You have the same power in your vote as the President. People have forgotten that. If we allow the powerful (that we have allowed to be powerful) to influence our vote we give our power to them.
In the past, Politicians have learned that they can lie, cheat and scam the American people. We the People have limited our choices of representatives to the most effective liars, cheats and scammers. We delude ourselves into thinking those people that actually only have the power of ONE vote are somehow our best choices for representation.
Our elections are limited to determining which politician is least derelict. When you have a basket of rotten apples you throw the whole thing away. Our country is RULED by rotten apples. The fact that some of those apples are not as rotten as others should not detract from the fact that all the apples are rotten. We need to pick apples that are healthy and fresh. We need candidates that can represent all the people of the nation equally. We the People cannot effectively pick from a tree that has all rotten apples.
We need to stop allowing rotten apples to represent us. The only way to do this is to stop supporting a candidate as soon as they indicate behavior that is not in alignment with the morals of We the People. We need to Fire any person elected to represent us that is not in alignment with our wishes. Not to, is insanity.
I am on the same lines as you with our Government, Tom. The Sleeple have spoken and we are all doomed to a life of Enslavement by the Government we are suppose to control. You can't even protest unless it is approved by the town you have it in and only on the areas they allow you to protest at.
My take is like this : If 1% of the people have more wealth than the other 99% put together. Who should we be at War with ? Why do you think we have become such a Police Sate Country ? Why all the layers of Government like DHS, ICE, FBI, CIA and a Crap load of other 3 letter Government Departments all aimed at controlling us by their law or their Weapons ?
1776 we fought because of taxation - Now - We are taxed by your Boro/City - County - State - Federal - Taxed for buying food you need to live - Taxed for buying a vehicle to get to work in let alone the license - Registration - Inspection - Emission. Hell. We are taxed by proxy by every utility we need to live too. They even took Free TV off of us and now you have to pay for the Free TV plus taxes and fees. You buy a DVD. Do you own it ? NO ! If I can't use it or show it to someone else do I really own it. You can go to jail because you have Laws written by the very people who sell and make these DVDs. I have protested plenty in my day and it changes absolutely nothing. They let you feel like you are airing your issue then just keep on their pre-determined path of control. I will stop my rant now

Long list of registered Democrats that are mass murderers, the Orlando shooter and now I'm sure the Dallas shooter, how about the thug police shot in Baton Rouge? Bet they are Democrats too.
Aside from the brain damaged, who is in charge of creating the personality of people? PARENTS are. Parents propagate their personality traits to their offspring. If the parents are bigots there is an increased chance that their kids will be too. Before you say that TV and social structures in school and communities also affect a child's personality I need to remind you that if a parent properly teaches their children life skills and morals the children have a better chance of understanding the difference between right and wrong. I see parents that actively parent their children and I also see parents that are distracted from the job; playing on their phones, watching TV or surfing the internet. I see children being immoral in public while their parents look on in pride. I see common manners and curtsies ignored while parents never even notice their children's behavior. Regardless of a child's raising, once adult, when common reasoning is expected, people are responsible for their own actions. Thus, Adults should be held responsible for their actions. Not political parties, races, sex, orientation, religion or any other label. People make decisions. People take actions.
The 5 Worst/Recent Mass Murders in the USA (with a Firearm) Came from Democrats
So now, Democrats with Guns are a problem. Ludicrous! What if a mass murderer used poisoned water supply to kill people. Will water be outlawed? Murderers are twisted people. Keyword People. Sheesh, Talk about slanted media exposure.

Three thousand protestors block a street in Atlanta to protest against cops & it gets national attention. 100,000 bikers protest against Obama in Washington & it's not mentioned in the news. Your opinions are being manipulated.
I'm to the point where all I ever read is just the headlines and move on. Not only are the NEWS topics slanted to an agenda, I've noticed that the headlines are worded to illicit a reaction. Hatred, bigotry, murder and mistrust are the essence that people are being bombarded with by today's media. When you read the comments of an article. It is clear the people are being steered. Hatred, bigotry and mistrust is perpetuated into their daily lives. People lose interest in atrocities in favor of the new and improved atrocity. NEWS is no longer factual like when Cronkite delivered the stories. The media and the journalist are giving information based on opinions to illicit a meme. It is the new shepherd of the sheeple. I don't watch TV. I don't listen to the radio. I don't watch the NEWS videos with sound. I read the NEWS online. I see the headlines and comments people write. It sickens me. People are reactive to the point it is predictable. I actually feel sorry for the deluded masses.
NEWS is capitolized because it is supposed to be information from North, East, West and South, not because it represents something important to me.
Way too much hate in this world. They will all self destruct eventually. Unfortunately they take some of us with them.
The media no longer reports the actual NEWS. Everything is slanted to an agenda. The propagation of hatred and bigotry is captured in the headlines and fleshed out in the articles and comments. This media blitz of hatred fuels the stressed out population to actions. Are those actions the result of a strategy? Are the sheeple being redirected from the real issues? The few of us that can still see the real issues are being ruled by the mindless masses that have been convinced by the planners. Instant gratification, delusions of grandeur and a sense of helplessness distorts their senses and cause them to take actions that are extreme. Television and the internet now teaches our children. Shows like The Simpsons influence the parents. Everyone seems to think their voice must be heard and their ideals must be rallied. Frankly, the whole species disgusts me. I feel alone and helpless to do anything about it so I post comments so that somewhere, someday, someone might read something I've written and be able to do something. Our foundation is not cracking - it is gone. This house of hatred must fall. The more we try to prop it up the worse it gets. The sheeple need a wake-up call, NOW.

More scientific evidence that "Global Warming" is a hoax.
Global warming is not a hoax. The Global Warming Crisis is a hoax. The sun is midway into its main sequence, thus it is getting hotter. However, the Earth is coming out of its current ice age. There have been many ice ages during its lifetime. There will be another.
Thomas, there never was an ice age, it was a world wide flood. Read your Bible.

So, we have had a Black president and now they want a Woman president. I have to ask, why have we never had a Native American Indian president? Afterall, it is Their land the British stole? Perhaps it is because the Rulers of this nation are afraid they won't be able to control an Indian? But go ahead, their plan has been working so well up to now, why change it, right...Right....RIGHT!
