THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
This is no longer a union of the people it is a union of the corporations.
The government is no longer of the people and for the people…. and until it is put back into that formulation we will continue down this rabbit hole and the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.
The people following the “leaders” both democrat and republican and think they are working for them do not understand that unless we elect people who truly want reform- we will not improve. This Is at every level of the government not just about the president. This isn’t about Trump, Biden or Bernie- it is about true down and dirty change.
When we talk about social reform – for the police, the schools, and healthcare people become defensive because of what they have been taught to believe or think they know about how things should work.
“We the People” now work for the royal we, the government… we pay THEM to keep us subservient and “in our place” and we pay to stock pile weapons and the military (not take care of our military mind you) and we pay billions upon billions of dollars to keep the rich, rich and make them richer. The intent was that the government would work for “We the People” but we strayed from that path along the way due to greed of those who isolated the power and wealth to a few at the detriment of the many.
Our taxes should be going to make the country better – people are convinced that health care for all will be the end of our country and slip us into a socialist society and that if it is put in place they will pay more money and lose more coverage. They are constantly barraged with false scenarios of scarcity and wait times by those that stand to gain the most in the current mode. We the people do not understanding what we are paying for now in private coverage today is greater than what our taxes would be to make healthcare a right and public nationwide. Too many of we the people have lost the theme of help thy neighbor, so they don’t want their taxes going to help the poor “They (the poor) should try harder” and feel that we already do far too much for those less fortunate even as the government has steadily eroded our social safety nets for years through cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and every other program designed to feed, shelter or assist we the people.
We are failing as a society because the government has convinced us that if we work harder and smarter we to can be part of that 1%… where all they are doing is attempting to keep people who are down down- and make more people for the “working class” and between the attempts to control a woman’s body and racism – they even have the church and white supremacist convinced to do their dirty work.
I know this sounds like a conspiracy theory but look at this in the big picture- from the outside looking in…
Real change is required in our society and our government or “We the People” will be redefined as “We the Rich” and the “People” will be expendable as evidenced by the current push to open the economy.
