“Until we all fully understand that it’s not just the current and previous administrations who are to blame for the growing economic inequality in America, but big corporations and their greed. We will never unite and prosper as a people. The demise of the Middle Class will continue. And the true culprits, specifically the Billionaire businessmen behind the real politics that go on unseen, will continue to make insanely huge profits. It’s time to cry out for a more level playing field that allows all the hard-working people of this country to live a better and less worrisome life, instead of living pay check to pay check.”
We must become united as a people if we ever expect to help solve our nation’s problems. But first we need to drop the self-defeating mind-set of “us against them.” A division of our citizens that was instigated by the government a long time ago. We need to see how both sides of our political parties point the finger at each other for the problems in this country, and nothing much gets done. Especially when it comes to helping the dwindling middle class. Black, White, Hispanic, no matter what race. This struggling and yet largely ignored group of people find it harder each year to live the American Dream, while the extremely wealthy and the extremely poor seem to get all the attention and all the benefits.
We can, of course, continue to believe that we’re right and the other side is wrong, and argue our political views with each other. But I’m hoping more people will begin to see the insanity in all of this and stop the debates. First, however, more people will need to see the insanity within our political parties. It shouldn’t be too hard. The extreme foolishness, folly, senselessness, and foolhardiness exhibited by our politicians over the years, the very people we trusted to make things better in our country, should be evident by the shape its in. If we can all agree on this, maybe then we can become united in a common cause that benefits everyone.
We can even have the mind-set of “us against them” once again, only this time it will hold a new, and perhaps promising meaning for everyone involved.
