This iReport is part of an assignment:
Shutdown over: What next?
Reckless wars and corrupt and dishonest politicians are the reason.
I have no story to share but i have my understanding and feeling to share. Live in Canada at a stone though distance but seeing South of the border and to our American brethren in trouble and in such unprecedented economic hardship is not a pleasant sight at all.
We travel south of the border quite frequently and some US cities are our favorite destination for shopping and food. Specially Michigan, Buffalo and Detroit.
As much as I remember, the Glory days of US and fun we had in shopping and other activities did not last for very long time.
Right after self inflicted 911 disaster,( Must be shocking to read but please see links of the interviews of retired 4star general Wesley Clark about US plan to invade seven countries right after 911) things started to change, The behavior, the characters, and the feelings.
Slowly but surely, the malls were empty, the eateries were not as busy and people were not sure what will happen tomorrow. America keep burning its resources, money and most valuable thing, the respect in the eyes on international community and even within fellow citizens. From Canada, we see these things through the magnifying glass and as we acknowledge USA as an important trade partner, when US sneezes, we catch cold. With this when Canada is not immune to this, after Liberal government, we found a hawkish conservative singing the same tune of wars and bullish behavior as their US counterparts.
Today, the whole world is suffering because of the false propaganda and wrong ideologies of the war mongers, where very important assets and resources are burnt in past 12 years of continuing wars and war like atmosphere. USA with 14 trillion debts and many European countries on the verge of bankruptcies. never mind the loss of millions of innocent lives, the world is not safe and better place to live.
I will urge all our American brothers and sisters to see the real picture that how their elected or selected candidates and their governments had betrayed their trust each and every day. Just think if this past 12 years of disastrous time if could be reversed what picture it would paint.
2 million American are living in their own homes.
Millions of them were not living on food stamps for day to day life.
Health care would have been a more affordable service which today millions of Americans are deprived of.
Common man would have more money and residual income to enjoy.
People would have been living in peace and harmony.
US government would be rich enough to feed the hungry, the poverty stricken and shelter less citizen of the world as a true world leader of the free world.
Terrorism would have been not on the same scale as it is at present time since this is one of the fruit of US meddling in other countries affairs.
With so much lies and deception and corruption and all of the candidate to be power hungry and supported by one powerful lobby or other, no politician is guarantee to be a good candidate and representative for the people of United State of America. Please find me only one politician who is not accepting funding from the lobbies whose main motive is to make money and lots of money, so when their ulterior motive is not to serve the common man, how they can be a good elected representative of people? In days to come, with a very general understanding of economics, one thing can be said with certainty that real hardship is already knocking the doors of each and every common man in United States of America and God bless America.
