If you don't think we are in trouble, read this.
I am so frightened for my country. At no time since the Great Depression has good leadership been more important than right now. And who are the leaders that the tea party are fronting? Blithering idiots without a clue as to how to govern. They are the puppets of big business. Pretty women whose elevators don't go all the way to the top and who are so ideologically twisted that they would take us over the cliff if they get the chance. Add men candidates who think the unconstitutional Arizona law is great and that privatizing everything is the way to go and these
numbskulls candidates are the ones that big business want you to vote for.
Our country is in big trouble on all fronts. We were once the undisputed leader in the world and now China is about to clean our clock. The things that will save us all run counter to the interests of big business. Now that the Supreme Court has, in it's infinite stupidity, opened the floodgates to the money that big business can pour into our elections (and that will influence the outcome in their favor), we are fighting an uphill battle against the oil and coal companies, the insurance industry, and Wall Street.
The people could have stopped Hitler if they had acted soon enough and Rome might have survived if the populace had not become complacent. We must not let our country go the way of other civilizations.
(I am aware that there were other factors involved in the 'take over' of Germany and the decline and fall of the Roman empire, but the people were complicit in both instances and could have made a difference.)
I hope you're mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore. Educate everyone you know and drag them to the polls, if necessary. Only the people can stop this take over of our country by a few extremely wealthy individuals.
