Our citizens of this, what used to be known as the greatest country in the world, need to wake up from the political blindsiding and hate speech they have been fed from the right wing Republican Party over the last four decades. This agenda of the Republican Party has gotten much worse over this last decade, especially with their rhetoric of intolerance and hatred toward certain social groups and minority races in this country. It seems that all they really care about is advancing and maintaining an agenda to promote and keep their own corporate and personal greed through lobbying for big businesses and the millionaires and billionaires in this country for more and more and bigger and bigger tax cuts for themselves. While attempting to push this agenda that they have, more burden is being placed on the middle class, who are the ones who can least afford it.
What really boggles my mind is the fact that I don't think half of the people in this country really understand what our two major political parties in this country actually stand for or represent. When you actually think about it, and look at how people in this country vote, you have to say to yourself, "what is wrong with these people, how can they become so brainwashed and disillusioned?" The way I see it, nobody in this country who has an income of less than $100,000.00 a year should even be voting for the Republican Party because they are certainly not your party or are ever going to do anything for you. Yet, if you look at some of the red states that the Republican Party usually carries, especially those in the south, you have to look even deeper to see the reason why they win in those states. Typically, many of those states are your less affluent or poorer voters voting Republican. Now, why would they do that, you ask? It's not because the Republicans ever do anything to help the poor, now is it? It's because the Republican Party feeds on spewing hatred and intolerance of certain social groups and minority races to the poor, because "they have always been able to get them to buy into it." That's how the Republican Party gets the vote in the south, it's not because that's where all the millionaires and billionaires are living.
With our country's economy on the verge of collapse, such as we have seen during this past summer in other countries abroad, it's time this country and its people wake up. If this isn't your wake up call, I don't know what you're waiting for.
It's time this country and its people understand their Politicians and Political Parties and what they stand for and represent, and who they represent. If this country is ever going to get itself straightened out and back on track, the voting majority in this country (the middle class) had better start cleaning up congress by getting the republicans out of there, so congress can work and get our country working again. If you don't there will not be change, only more of the same as things become worse and worse. Things are not moving or changing now. Why,? because congress is holding the country hostage. Remember the last time we voted the Republicans out of power in the congress, because nothing could get done? Well, it's that time again, wake up people!
