Recently I have been drawn to politics. Not really being a politician but the stupidity of how things are being done out there in Washington. This isn't a bash Bush thing. This is a quandary of our political system, absolute corruption, bi-partisan legislation, and just doing what is better.
Politicians, I think, are mostly immoral selfish people. Rarely do you hear about a politician that is actually out REPRESENTING the people that voted it into office. Yes, I know, I said it. It is an easier reference point. Being politically correct is so out of hand these days I don't even want to deal with the He/She crap.
Where did we go wrong? I'm not against our system or capitalism or our President. I didn't vote. I didn't think there was anyone deserving of my vote, qualified to hold that position. Our government is corrupt. Republicans, Democrats, Green all of em. Since when did politics become a vehicle for personal gain? Dumb question. But why does it have to be that way? Everyday that I listen to the news its this guy took bribes, that guy lied, he's not telling the truth, there were other motives when choosing that company, kickbacks, grease money, all that crap.
It makes me want to start anew. Why are there only liberals and conservatives? I think that most people that don't vote are the people that feel alienated from both parties. Middle of the road kind of people. The people that are sort of informed but turned off enough to be absent from the voting booth.
I'm not a Democrat or a Republican. I'm not a liberal or a conservative. I want peace in Iraq and to bring our soldiers home. I want the Iraqis to be able to govern their own country safely. I want to be prepared to prevent terrorism. I don't care if homosexuals get married but I don't think they should be able to adopt. I think taxes are all wrong. Everyone should have to pay taxes but let us be reasonable. The government doesn't need 40% of anyone's money. But they need something from everyone. I don't care for the welfare system. I think the people that come to this country should come with the expectation of becoming something. I hate racism. I am tired of "politically correct." I like rap music and think people can learn from it. I think pedophiles should be handed harsher sentences for any offense. I don't have a problem with the death penalty. Except that it shouldn't cost $2 million to kill someone. Which of the 2 parties do I fit in?
I believe that Americans can be represented fairly. Open minds can save us. Not Dictators and Parties. I believe in dialog and compromise.
I don't know what I am getting at exactly but I do know this.
IF I ran for president I would:
*stand for honesty.
*communicate as much information to the people as I possibly could.
*throw out millions of laws and try to simplify the legal system.
*have a balanced budget.
*have lots of special voter elections to know what the people wanted from their leaders.
*demand morality and honesty from senators, and congress people, and big businesses.
I would represent the people. And I would do everything in my power to make sure I was fair and just.
I think Americans deserve more than what we have currently. We deserve more from our elected officials. We deserve more than just you politicians asking us to vote for you. The only time we hear about politicians is when they are asking for our vote and that's not right.
