Today is just a short rant. I just got tired of listening to all the political rhetoric going on between both parties. Nothing is truly being accomplished by this election. No one is telling the truth....whether it is about themselves or their opponent. I am not speaking just about the Presidential race either.
People want politicians to tell the truth but really would they be able to handle it.
The truth that there is so much deception and behind closed door meetings that would frighten us. Or that our national debt can not be cleared ever because of the deals that were made MANY years before I was even born. Would Americans be able to handle the politicians telling them that they are fat and lazy and being lulled into a controlled existence? Would they be ok with knowing that by having the government give handouts/ups that they are controlling taking away agency/freedom? If politicians were honest with how much they get paid or their kickbacks from major corporations and lobbyists it would make us sick. To know that they are still paid with tax dollars on top of what they get under the table. Or that they pass laws that don’t apply to them….HELLO Medicare, Social Security, Obamacare.
If the American people want honesty from politicians then they better be able to handle the truth. The truth that politicians are supposed to work for us but instead we fill like we work for them. That they are supposed to listen to the majority and not the minority. That they are supposed to create laws that the American people want and not what will suit their vested interests. That judges are supposed to enforce the laws not create them. That we are supposed to vote our conscience and not what the media or tradition tells us. I have seen where people vote for someone because of their name.
Can we handle the truth from the politicians? I would be saddened to really have them speak the truth because I know that it would throw me for a loop about their intentions and agenda for America as well as themselves. Not what the American people want. It is like in High School when we vote for King and Queen. We vote for those who are pretty or who flatter us. Not who best represents us.
You may or may not agree. This is just my own personal opinion and yes I do know that there are some good people in politics. This is just a generalization and not to point fingers at any politician or party. But this is what I see and feel.
