Americans are Sick of Their Government. 2016 Won't 'FIX' Everything
2016's Presidential election.
"Will Hillary throw her hat in the ring?"
What about Joe Biden?
Is Chris Christie a better challenger against Hillary should she win the Democratic nomination?
Who will win the GOP's nomination with Ted Cruz and Rand Paul now winning recent polls in Republicanland?
Was anyone paying attention over the last three weeks?
Americans are sick of divided government.
Both parties solicit campaign funds from Wall Street. Lobbyists write 'Our' legislation.
Privatization of government continues as do subsidies for the rich and famous while America's middle class get screwed out of every penny our 'so called representatives' can squeeze from us by austerity.
Americans are sick of our representatives' interpretation of what our country's founders had envisioned of the United States.
They're sick of the games and the con job of both parties.
Yes, Democrats are less blatant about their interest in helping the Corporatocacy.
The last thing and the first thing that voters want to hear about is the next election.
We want the folks that are in Congress now to DO SOMETHING!
We need good paying jobs. An infrastructure bill would help.
We need money invested in education and research to bring about those good paying laws.
We need fair trade laws that will prevent American jobs from going to slave colonies of the United States.
Yes, we give a damn about the Chinese and Indian ability ti earn a decent living but not at American worker's expense.
We need to take care of American families first, then show our benevolence toward other countries by helping them with their economies.
We need a government that works for Americans not just for American corporations.
We need public financing for all elections.
And the last thing we need is to continue to wait for the next election to fix everything.
The last election didn't.
What makes anyone believe that the next one will?
The time to address the changes we need is now.
Not in 2016.
Congress? Are you listening?
