“The Melting Pot Has Cracked”
“The Melting Pot Has Cracked”
“We the People”, in past history we have propped up the mighty educated politician, lawyer, and others of the government agencies around the world only to be disappointed by deceit, deception, greed, unwillingness to listen to the people. Yet we find that those people who we elect feel that they are untouchable to being elected out of office or worse impeached from office. The news media reports what they want us to hear with the direct help of the federal government and the hidden ones, showing the heavy thumb of the government and how “all mighty” they think they are. While “We the People” yell at the news and protest to our government officials, “We the People” seem to forget one fundamental item. “We The People”, United States Official Citizens” have the right to exercise our voices as well as our time and efforts to take back our government and pull the reins back on the lies, deception, and unwillingness to listen to us. “We The People should not fear our government. It’s our government that should fear its people.” How can founding fathers of our government become obsolete by changing the very documents that govern our country and its very principles which “We the People” agreed upon when this country was formed. Amending the rules to fit your own greed was not one of those rules, laws, agreements, whatever you want to call it in today’s society. I am appalled with utter disbelief that someone like myself, who served his country for over 18 years only to become a disabled veteran and surviving only on what little scraps the veterans’ administration and social security want to give me, would have to even pay a single dime for living in poverty, while the rich find any way possible to not pay their fair share and are literally giving themselves billions of my tax payer money for letting a multi-billion dollar corporation go down the tubes only to wait till the last second to tell someone. How did they even start the business in the first place if they didn’t have capital to back them? I would love to start my own business. One that I know would create jobs in my low income area for years to come, yet I can’t get a single dime, in the very same manner that the so-called educated ones are able to obtain funds to secure a startup business. It has been asked numerous times if we are changing from Capitalism to Socialism. Well let’s test that theory right now. Health care is not given to all, and it cost billions every year because of the greedy ones that want to sue for every little thing. In other words, over “Loop holes” and using dishonest ambulance chancing lawyers to fight the battle for winnings. Education has tanked to a degree that scares even the dead scholars of the past. Television is more violent then it has ever been and the shows that had meaning, morals, and values were taken from the screen “Because they were too violent???” How are Gilligan’s Island, Hogan’s Heroes, I Love Lucy, and Bugs Bunny and many other great shows so violent that change was needed? They were Amazing works of art. How can we tell other countries to “tear down their walls” yet we build one before them? How can we allow people “illegal’s” to enter our country and get FREE money, health care, education, etc...?And not even be a citizen of the country nor have they paid they share of taxes at all? The answers lie right here before us people. We are not a capitalism changing to a socialist state. We are a capitalism changing into a modified version of communism. The test is true and right before you. So what can we do to reverse the clocks and take back our country you ask? BOYCOTT the government and hold them 100% accountable for their actions and their greed. MAKE them listen to you. PROTEST till it changes. Here’s something to think about. If everyone just stopped paying, buying, investing, etc… for just one day a week for one month, the significance of greed that those that hoard our tax dollars” would force a rapid and immediate change as to what the people want and that the Government should pay more attention to what the people of this “great nation wants”, not what the politicians, lawyers, and all our fake “elected officials, with their hidden agendas want.” If that were that case; then people I propose one thing to you. When the very next election comes open for the highest seat in the nation, I implore you to elect me. I have no experience but that of living in the dumps all my life. I have nothing to hide, because the left, right and down the middle will find something to dig up on me no matter if it’s true or not. I won’t ask for a massive salary or fancy cars and live in a billion dollar mansion. Nope. I’ll just live where I am now. And collect only that which gets me by. Just like the rest of you out there that struggles every day to stay alive, just enough to pay my bills and get a few nice things if “you the people who elect me allow it.” Think about it and get back to me soon as you can. I’d love to set the story straight and enact a law to supersede all laws. That no one is above the law and change back what idiotic laws that were made to create these loopholes in the first place. To take back America that is ours, not the nation next to us or around the world and to provide the one thing that this country has thrown out of the “Melting Pot;” Values, Morals, Integrity, Honesty, Courage, and the pursuit of happiness. Reality to all is that I have only spoken of a few things that only scratched the surface. The greed has been running through some of our veins for way too long and it feels way too good to give it up, but it’s time we show those greed mongrel’s what it means to be American once again. This was not a nation of “prosper by greed and take all the free stuff you can get.” It WAS a nation of prosperity through core morals and values that we have all forgotten and set aside for the easy way. “The Melting Pot has cracked so how we weld it back together?” ELECT ME NEXT. I'LL FIX THAT CRACKED POT AND WITH A QUICKNESS.
