Wake Up America Part II
I am advocating a hybrid socialistic capitalism. Heavy of the socialism. Yes, I said it. We want reform. We want hope. We want higher wages, better benefits, better future. Here it is. All anyone has to do is use their brain for 10 minutes. It's literally very easy. I am very open to ideas, expansion, and growth. I think there has to be a way to reward new business while maintaining overall integrity. But, I contend that any entrepreneur worth their salt is more interested in running a successful business than making millions. Money is merely a byproduct.
I am in favor of shutting down the TSA entirely. I am in favor of shutting down Homeland Security entirely. I am in favor of ending PRISM. I am in favor of small Federal Government. I am in favor of handing the keys to this country and more importantly the future back to the individual. I am in favor of ending the police state, reducing the police force and the military arsenal drastically.
I am in favor of taking all of this money that I am suggesting we save, and invest it in viable green technology, renewable energy, national parks, natural resources. Upgrading our infrastructure dramatically. Take all the able bodied men and women who draw government assistance and put them to work re-building roads and bridges. Let's install bullet trains. Let's double down of education. Instead of going private with education, let's bet on the future and pour money into it for a change. Let's stop tying standardized test scores to school finances. Schools that under perform should receive more money and more teachers and tutors, not less. Provide kids the best technology and help that money can buy. Like it or not, have children or not, they are our future.
It is our responsibility as the adults to see past ourselves. It's our responsibility to provide them, and their children with the best chance for success and growth. We have to see past ourselves. We must think in broad strokes for what is to come if we do not change what we are doing. Right now, they have divided, scattered, polarized. The powers that be have us pinned down and crushed. We are a conquered people. George Washington advised against political parties as it would divide us. That was awfully forward thinking of him. If we have political parties, let's have many. Let's give each candidate the same opportunity to speak and be heard. Let's welcome all persons to the table. Let's stop excluding people based on their skin color, educational background, sexual orientation. To be a bit cliche at this point, let's borrow from Martin Luther King Jr. and start judging people by the content of their character and embracing the dynamic and diverse nation we have.
We must move forward. We must get together, discuss, and debate with passion and fervor. I am not the person to lead the movement, but damnit if I cannot see it clearly enough. We must move the conversation. We are at the cusp of history people. You and I can taste it. The 99% movement rallied, it just lacked message. It lacked a point. I am not suggesting everyone convert to socialism. I would hope everyone would examine each political system and entertain them all. Every system has genius to it. Borrow from it, sample what worked, use it. Grow from it. Take what I am trying to start, and build on it. Throw away the things that we can agree might not work and put in something that's better. I don't have all the answers, but I know that doing nothing is definitely how we do nothing and fail. We are failing ourselves, we are failing our children and we are dooming the nation.
For a long time, I failed to truly understand Thomas Jefferson when he spoke about revolutions should come often. What we need to ideological re-evaluation on a constant basis. We need a cultural revolution focused on the quality of life and standards of living. We have everything we could possibly need and so much more. It's a crime to humanity, and an insult to our grandparents and their parents that we have allowed ourselves to ruin what they gave us and allow the few to conquer the masses.
It's not enough to be sick of politics and religion. We are at a cross roads. More atheist than at any point in documented history. Politics has splintered the nation. The only thing we have left is Nationalism and self-preservation which feeds into the Zombie Apocalypse nonsense. Stand today. Rally with each other. Rally for each other. Demand equality. Fight for rights, not just yours, but all rights.
This is now up to you guys. This is me doing what I can do. I am lighting a match, holding it to paper and creating a torch. I am holding it up, I am putting this out there. Let it burn out or carry it. Your choice.
You can pick apart the math, you can crunch the numbers and change them. I based my numbers off of quick google research and government links. If your first-time focus is on the exact math, you’ve missed the entire point of this piece and should probably pull the stick out of your ass and then re-read.
