While a lot of you continue to tow your party's line and throw up ads and charts and statistics as ammo to blame either the Republicans and the Democrats (Obama included) on the current state of the union, I just sit back in amazement at the immense level of stupidity that surrounds me every day.
The bottom line here is that we've got 535 members of Congress along with a President and all his cabinet members and advisors all of which are FAILING to effectively manage this country's economy. They're not only failing, they're making things worse. And it's not just this administration or session of congress; this same mismanagement has been going on for DECADES! Why? Because we're all REALLY STUPID - we keep voting for the same BULLSHIT every election! And then we join in with the idiots on Capitol Hill by blaming the other party for everything. So, all you have is two sides shifting the blame back and forth -over and over and over again. Guess what - that doesn't actually ACCOMPLISH anything! The only way things are going to change is if the entire system changes! Quit blowing your Republican or Democratic horn long enough to realize that YOU are part of the problem. Because you keep on swallowing the same bullshit from your party year after year after year.
Here's what you do instead:
Fire Congress. Right now! The whole lot of them. They're each making $174,000 a year (the leadership, slightly more) -- that's over $93Million each year, not including the salaries of all the support staff. For WHAT?! NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. The current approval rating for Congress is 14% - that means 86% of the population -the people who voted for these idiots in the first place- DON'T APPROVE of the way Congress is doing things. Now, if you or I had a meager 14% approval rating on our yearly review at work, do you think we'd still be employed?! Why is it different for Congress?
And while you're at, go ahead and fire the President too. He's pretty much a puppet of his party. Hasn't had any "REAL" power in over a hundred years.
There! Now we start fresh and hold open and FAIR debates and elections to choose some real leaders and visionaries. No more Two-Party choke hold on debates and elections. No more Two-Party choke hold on THE COUNTRY. We get to hear all voices and all ideas and we make our choices based on facts, not spinned up hype or dirty tricks. Congress should be made up of multiple parties; Green, Libertarian, Constitution, Independents... matter of fact, let's just take party affiliation out of the entire equation. I don't care if you're a member of the alien alliance party -if you've got the skills, ideas, and INTEGRITY to get this country turned around, YOU'RE HIRED!
And once you're hired, you either produced or you get fired. Screw these 2- or 6-year 'terms' - your job is now PERFORMANCE-based and you can be voted out after your first year.
Tell me, seriously, how could that NOT work?! It's obvious that what we have now is NOT working. It's time to try something new.
