Another Reform vs Rebuild Post
How long will people on the right and the left keep clinging to their parties? I heard someone the other day bragging about "having an impact"
Lets put it in perspective:
A guy really wants to be liked by a girl. Can keep away from her. Thinks the world is over without her. The girl seems to be ramping up her moves to get the point across to this poor shmuck that shes not interested.
The guy finally gets her to smile at something. Goes back to his friends and claims he "had an impact"....
The thing this guy doesnt realize is this: She doesnt date people like you. Period. Not going to do it.
That sums up the desperation and pathetic-ness of our current- what we view anyways- political realm. Desperation, not realizing theres "plenty of fish"...stuck and obsessed.
300 million people in this country, and we cannot figure out to get control of our political future. We wont put in the time, the research or the energy (if you are currently doing this, dont take offense, theres about 2% of the population that is the exception).
So here we are. Pandering to a machine that has been working like this, the same exact way, for around 150+ years. Plugging along, and tossing our a few goodies every now and then.
Do people realize how entirely AWESOME this country could be if people were willing to put in only a few hours a month? Really embracing self governance.
I know that people are strapped for time. But they arent strapped to that extent. They just arent.
Clean and free energy. Incredible education leading to an incredible economy. Clean foods with easy access. etc. etc etc.
Another World Is Possible.
