For years I thought I was just a little crazy. I have a level of cynicism that is hard to beat. I'm a curmudgeon in the making. The problem is that I look for facts to prove me wrong, and I'm not finding any. The world is a crappy place. It has been for a long time. It's a farce and wishful thinking to believe otherwise. Millions are hungry just in the United States alone. People tell me it's wrong to take money from the rich and redistribute it to the poor. That's socialism! That's bad! Those rich people earned it, so they should be able to do what they want with their money. But shouldn't the poor be able to eat? And have an education? What about a roof over their head?
If you're really lucky and do it right, you can work your way up from the bottom of the pyramid to somewhere in the middle. You can have a relatively comfortable life, watch TV, have an iPhone, drive a Lexus... just what the rich folks want. By keeping us all comfortable and fat, we don't have the drive to make change happen. And change does need to happen. This country is sliding into the shitter all around us! Our roads are going to #OOPS#, our education is going to #OOPS#, and if it's possible, our politicians are even shittier than ever. Democrats, Republicans... they're all the same #OOPS#.
I'm pissed. The United States and the Constitution are two things I love dearly. I don't believe in much, but I believe in the Constitution, that all are created equal, and that the freedom of speech is the most important human right anyone can have. So it's about time that the Department of Homeland Security, the President, and Congress stopped shitting on our rights and freedoms.
What good is feeling safe when the real terrorists are your government and the victim was your freedom?
