The president won his re-election and democrats were voted into many new slots in DC, but we still ended up with a GOP held house. That means we have the same old ‘GOP’ hardline going on and its obvious that they will not be deterred from destroying our country. Look at them, they still think they hold all the power, and in a way, they seem to do just that. Would it not have been more logical to expect that they would have been intimidated by their loss? Instead, because they ‘legally’ were allowed to change ‘election’ sites to ensure that they would not lose some GOP held seats and thus we once more have this GOP led house determined to destroy our country. What else would we think. ]
I find it very disturbing that even with ample proof of what would transpire if we were to cut needed safety net programs, that is what they seem intent on doing. That then begs the question, is that there real objection? Do they want to destroy our country, and then turn around and let there ‘owners’ finalize the deal to ‘purchase’ our country? That does sound more like a conspiracy theory than truth, right? Yet, we have every stated mission and that mission is to cut government spending. Of course, that spending is allowed for ‘defense’ and for restricting women’s rights, but not spending on jobs programs or safety net programs. Of course, then we must also cut SS and Medicare, even though SS can not add to our debt and Medicare only needs to be tweaked here and there to work ( allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices would help) and SS only needs the ceiling removed from payroll taxes.
How then do we the people, fight against this attack on our government and on we the people? The only way that is clear is to not give up. Keep on signing those petitions and emailing and calling the senators and reps in DC and yes, even the president. It’s the people that have the power to enact change, but it takes all of us. We have in our past, starting with our inception as a country and then again in the mid 1800’s and again in the early 1930’s, been able to band together and reclaim our government from corporate dollar control.
We can do it again, and that is worth repeating over and over, till we get everyone’s attention. It will be harder because of the great portion of our populace that was so successfully brainwashed by our corporate owned media, but we also have the power of the ‘net’ to counteract the ‘corporate owned media’. We are after all, the new media.
Still, it does seem as nothing has changed in DC and it can seem a little frustrating. So, that’s why I have doubled down on my research and at the same time joined a few more new sites and will try my best to keep sharing all I find and learning from all I converse with.
