At least with a monarchy we knew there was nothing we could do. In this faux republic we live in today, we believe we have a voice in deciding what happens to our country. That's obviously not true as evidenced by the financial bailout no average citizen wanted.
Whether they cry for change or hail that their boy is a maverick on Capitol Hill, both sides seem to be equally misguided into thinking their man can do something beneficial for America.Not only can neither of the major candidates stop us from heading into the hellhole we are sure to be in soon, they are both most likely going to get us there faster.
Wasn't there something in the Declaration of Independence that was supposed to allow the citizenry to stand up and demand satisfaction from their government? That if our government is failing us, we are morally responsible for correcting those woes?
Apparently the candidates in this year's election didn't get that memo, or never read the Declaration in 4th grade social studies. They want to lie and finagle their way into office and then continue along this same treacherous (economic) road we've been heading down for six decades since FDR's New Deals.
I wish I could end by asking for people to be smart this November; to go out and research the candidates. But I know, you know, whoever may actually read this knows: Americans are dumb. We are easily fooled by catchy slogans and bright lights. So he who yells loudest will unfortunately yell last.
