I commend this man for standing up for what he see’s at his “Right”s. But then I think it’s not like he’s accomplished anything more than coming off looking like a fool along with most of his supporters. I don’t disagree with his bottom line, heck I’ve gone on a rant recently myself after receiving a $900 tax bill on land we just spent seventeen years paying off. I don’t even have school age children anymore but yet a good portion of this county tax bill is for school taxes - like wtf.
However when it comes to the US government nothing is going to change — the US has become a nation of over-weight lazy people (yes myself included) who either don’t have the will power (or money) to over-throw our government or frankly many just don’t care.
Then again; maybe some day some fanatical right wing group such as radical Texans who have threatened secession multiple times will actually do more than blow hot air. My question is this, “what good will it really do”? So maybe you succeed with the dramatic departure but then what, one corrupt government gets replaced with another? Our government claims to be for/about the people but we as the people know that’s a lot of bull hockey. Maybe some of our government officials care about this country but when they themselves are governed by congress and state representatives who too many of are attached to corrupt industries willing to line their own bank accounts rather than do whats right for said people — government fails. I see it as a domino effect, the corruption has been let to build for so long now there’s no easy way out if, at all. And no one person or even group of persons at this time are truly enough to make a difference.
Now maybe I’m ranting and probably not very clearly but rather than fight against the tide I say life is too short so make the best of what you have or can accomplish now. We only have a 100 years at best in this world why use them up on crap we seriously have no control over. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud those people who dedicate there lives to change, I really do. But for me personally, I’m just not into beating a my head against the wall. I really hope I don’t offend anyone with my opinion, it wasn’t my intentions — this is just how I feel.
That’s all I have to say about that. – Forest Gump
