BP201 saidYet people think it's their right and duty to vote for greedy pathological liars that could care less about our well being as citizens of the present and future. You people set yourselves up and call people like me "cynical" for not wanting take part of a vile tradition that further breaks the system.
If you want to focus on the good of the world then strip away your egotistic patriotism/nationalism or religion. Look at yourself as a citizen of earth fighting for the good of all... These wars will continue to go on as long as we allow ourselves to be separated by borders, religion and lies told by your government.
You are absolutely correct on this one. In addition to clearing out our government of the entrenched, crooked, political establishment both democratic and republican, we need to stop worrying about the rest of the world and start worrying and reinvesting in the USA. We need to stop being so wasteful and taking everything for granted. We need to change our development patterns in this country by ending our unnecessary and unsustainable preference for car centric suburban sprawl and return back to both the central cities and the old first ring suburbs who have suffered the brunt of decline, disinvestment, and abandonment for the past 40+ years. We need to take care of our own people rather than allowing in more poor, uneducated immigrants. From the streets of Detroit, Flint, Gary, and Baltimore to the rugged mountains and hollows of Appalachia and the Ozarks, there are our fellow Americans struggling and starving and not even getting by. Why not help these poor folks out first and invest in their troubled locales rather than sending more money to third world dictatorships. We need to rebuild our crumbling, decrepit existing infrastructure rather than waste money on more new infrastructure to service unneeded new suburban subdivisions out in the middle of nowhere. We need to invest in education for our future generations rather than waste so much tax money supporting Friday night high school football along with all the unnecessary bureaucracy in the schools. We need to yank all the public subsidies for the military industrial complex, prison industrial complex, and professional sports leagues especially the NFL which is probably the nation's largest corporate welfare recipient. Until we do all these needed reforms, nothing is going to change for the better.
