Fashionable Criticism Needs to Go Out of Style



November 19, 2012 – Comments (3)

It's all too easy to bash politicians.  Every armchair in the USA has some critic who thinks they can run the country better than the current office holders.  They throw around a few controversies and point and shout to all those who will listen about the injustice and treason.  But the truth is politics all starts with a highly subjective series of well established opinions that we've developed over the years, sometimes even before voting age.  Then we all put on our blinders and complain about the lack of vision from the other side.  So the sad fact is we are all the problem.  We can move beyond this petty partisanship only if we all begin to understand that "We The People" doesn't just include supporters of one party or another.  I personally will not feed into this cycle of hate and therefore won't be bashing one side or another.  If we expect our politicians to work together and put the country ahead of their own partisan self interests than maybe the people must lead as democracy intended?  Maybe it's up to us to begin encouraging solutions and compromise instead of trying to maintain petty partisan fighting between our fellow Americans through bashing one side or the other?  Just maybe if the people lead our leaders might follow?  Always the optimist I know, but that's the kind of world I want.  What kind would you want for yourself and your kids?  Unity or division, the choice is yours.

What I want for my kids and their kids is a fair shake.  Unity is a delusion.  History has taught us that the few try to control the masses.

We had royalty with the whole Divine Right theory being pushed until the 13 Colonies in America told them to stick it.  But, sadly, we have that royalty being replaced by the uber rich.

I want class warfare.  I want the masses to tell the uberites to beat it.  I don't believe the term "class warfare" is a bad word because hey I am NOT in that 2%.  So please save the whole unity or division speech.  It sounds like the CNBC "rise above" argument yet still saying how the rich create jobs and deserve tax breaks.  Tell that to the 50 million people at and below the poverty line.
