Sorry, a little off topic guys, but I need to vent…
Anyone else at their wits’ end for this country right now?
I am pissed, afraid, confused and sad about our direction.
No one cares that our debt is rising and has no end in sight, and no plan to change it. We waste our money, and no one follows up to see where it could be cut, trimmed or reclaimed. No one investigates fraud, waste or abuse anymore.
We reward the lazy, the disrespectful, the godless, and the selfless.
We tax the shit out of the hard working, way higher than what caused our forefathers to start the revolution. They keep raising and adding more taxes/fees/surcharges in places you don’t expect.
Our schools suck, but demand more money. The teachers are getting worse, but we reward them with tenure. Our kids are being taught political ideology, cultural sensitivity and sexuality options, while math, science and comprehension skills plummet. Cursive writing is no longer taught because “they don’t have time” for that.
The world is getting crazy, but we are cutting the military.
You can’t pray in public or share your religious displays without a lawsuit, but you must allow ANY deviant behavior to march in your parade or on the city streets.
Population is growing, while police forces are shrinking, but they want you to leave your family’s protection up to them. The police forces are getting militarized and reactive, instead of being proactive in the community.
You work hard, they want more from you. You work less, they give more to you.
Our government agencies are targeting specific political beliefs, and even spy on Congress.
Our borders are basically wide open & vulnerable, only 13 years after our country was attacked by our enemies; yet 3 year old kids and 98 year old nuns get frisked at the airport.
This post is right now being scrutinized by the NSA, FBI and 12 other agencies because of some of the terminology I used. The government seems more interested in the citizenry, than outside threats. Being a patriot is somehow deemed a threat. Being against a big and continually growing government is considered a threat. Exercising your rights is considered rebellious. Questioning the government is a threat.
Voter fraud is rampant, but you cannot pass laws to change that by requiring a picture ID because it’s “racist” or “too hard on the elderly”. Yet, come election time, they bus elderly and minorities to the polls by the hundreds of thousands around the country, especially in swing states.
We all have to work so much to survive, no one has time to protest, or take action to create positive change, or volunteer for good causes. The leeches of society have all day to march on DC if their benefits are threatened. (By leeches I mean those who can work, but do not/those who feign disability/those who collect public funds for food,school,utilities,free cell phones yet still buy high end clothes, cars and cool stuff that most taxpayers avoid because they’re so overtaxed)
I fear for our future. I fear for my children’s future. They WILL NOT have the same wonderful country that we have enjoyed while growing up. It’s our fault for letting it get to this, whether you have a “DEM” or “REP” voter registration card. We allowed it to happen on our watch.
It’s the old adage “that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death”.
How can anyone be optimistic about our future?”
