Perhaps I shouldn't write under the influence of hormones and while sick... I really fear for our Nation, I wonder how long this fragile balance will hold out. I see the riots in the UK because of socialism gone bad, the students are pissed because college tuition has gone up, so hundreds, perhaps thousands of them take to the street to protest, and violently. I see this sort of behavior in other countries where socialistic governments give and give until there isn't anything left to give, the people are taxed to death (and even after death), wealth is redistributed, then when things fail because there are more mouths to feed than there is food to go around, the people riot, they riot when services are cut, these people have been taken care of by nanny government from cradle to the grave and they know no other way to live. I worry about the powers that be in our government are trying to do that to us, to make us dependent on them, to take our freedoms away in the process.
Now the parties in power are fighting among themselves even more than ever, the dems want to tax and spend and are pissed deluxe because they lost so bad this last November, the repubs are trying to negotiate their way back into power, it's nice that they are extending the Bush tax cuts, but at what expense? Giving an extra year of unemployment benefits? It is a well known fact that statistically more people find work during the last month of unemployment benefits. I have no problem with safety nets, but please, don't allow it to become a way of life. God only knows what else they are signing away behind closed doors, they way they do things is to sneak the bills that the majority of the people would object to into other bills, we don't even have a clue as to what these people are are doing to us.
The majority of house and senate members have no idea what it's like to have to work for a living, to have to struggle, it's all a game to them, they really have no concept of being fiscally responsible, having to really budget to live. While they fight over paper and power, the rest of the country is trying to get on with life, I really don't see how things can get better, I can only pray that it will. Will you pray with me?
