The Republican National Convention is over… and by no surprise, it’s status quo.
Paul Ryan’s speech now a prime example of slanting the truth, condemning a man for doing the EXACT same things he does and outright lying. The Republicans should be proud of that boy. I won’t go over that here. He’s all over the internet for those breakdowns.
Governor Chris Christie stated that a vote for Obama would be showing a complacent attitude toward the status quo. I argue that believing that we only have Republicans and Democrats to choose from IS the status quo.
We’ve gone from having a situation to deal with to being thrown into a SHITUATION. What’s that, you ask?
I’ve been getting compliments on my fairness of helping the mudslinging going back and forth between the Jackasses (Democrats) and the Fatasses (Republicans). Neither Obama nor Romney deserve your support. Neither man is discussing what THEY will do as President. They just like talking about the other man’s skeletons in their closets.
In 2008, Obama said NOTHING about what he was going to do as President. And the Country rallied around the smooth talking gentleman from Chicago.
Romney is doing the same thing. Wants to avoid the issues, not provide papers that the public wants to see. (Sounds like the arguments against Obama, doesn’t it?)
It’s like we’re in a Batman movie and we have received our “Better Class of Criminal”
What’s gotten lost in all of this is the 99%. Yes, I’ve had enough of the term, too. There is an “Us vs. Them” mentality and everybody NOT rolling in the money is with us. And 98% of us 99% just throw our hands up and say “What can I do about it?” VOTE! RESEARCH! SPREAD THE WORD AFTER YOUR RESEARCH!
I cannot subscribe to either “party” anymore.
And don’t give me this whole “Congress will stonewall a Libertarian President”. No kidding! But the facts are, if we as a people are awake enough to vote in a Libertarian President in 2012, we are also awake enough to know which politicians are causing gridlock for party gain instead of actually weighing issues. We will be awake to vote out the “status quo” and bring in people who ACTUALLY want to step in a do a job!
I wasn’t a huge fan of Clint Eastwood’s speech at the RNC. But he did make some valid points.
- “We — we own it [the Country]. It is not you owning it, and not politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours.”
- “Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you’re libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.”
Folks, that’s what I am calling for. In 2008, we all believed that Republicans were the devil. We overwhelmingly voted in the Democrats. Two years later, the Republicans made a comeback thanks a similar mindset pointing the opposite direction. Perhaps it’s time to realize that BOTH parties are the problem and we need to seek out new solutions to solve the same old problems.
Insanity is defined by continuously doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Just sayin’.
