Are we still The United States Of America, or should we change that to The Divided States Of America?
On the radio today I heard that "Both parties claimed victory". Each party vilifies the other continuously, it matters not what one says the other has to say the opposite - even when the statement is obviously good for everyone. It seems to me that we are getting uncomfortably close to war between the Democrats and the Republicans. Even more close between the Liberals and the Conservatives!
Instead of a United front (as in UNITED States of America) we are getting more and more divided. Remember the old saying "United we stand, Divided we fall."? Whereas we have more in common than most countries, even though we are a mixture - which I think is one of our strengths - we are exaggerating our differences.
We have overcome our Racial Differences and our Religious Differences more than we have our Political Differences. Is that unbelievable?
We, the people, should be United against our politicians, after all they are United against us!
They agree that we are dumb (We MUST be to vote for them!) They use us as their personal piggy banks. They have figured out that they can "Fool all of the people, all of the time"! We can't even agree that they are raping us, keeping us divided for their own ends.
When the Wife of the President says our children (and ourselves) should eat better, how can anyone argue with that? Surely an innocuous statement, obviously only designed to help. After all, 50% of us are overweight - including our children. I see a statement like that to be designed to help. But instead half of the country is up in arms about it!
Turning on the TV the other day I caught the end of a program about food, unfortunately I only caught the end but the argument was that Artificial food is better than Organic food! I can only assume that some highly intelligent (Not), member of one of our parties had said that Organic food was better for you, and some equally highly intelligent member(Not) of the opposing party HAD to immediately state the opposite.
Why, oh why, can we not see that we should all be on the same side, we have enough enemies out there without making enemies of ourselves. Lets fight our real enemies, the enemies of Our Way of Life, of Democracy, of Capitalism and Freedom, Human Rights and Freedom of the Individual.
That's what I am saying!
