What's interesting is that even after all the IRS/NSA expose, nothing has changed. I grew up watching Chicago politics, which is a particularly pernicious blend of filthy politics and gangster tactics. Very effective, if you can stomach that kind of behavior, but certainly not "fair, equitable, and transparent". Not pro business, but very pro union, pro big government, pro graft. One of the obvious by products of the style is the fact that more Illinois governors land in jail than any other state.
Does anyone find it odd, in light of the debacle that is "ACA" that the conservatives were so maligned for trying to defund, or at least delay the major tenets for a year so some of the unworkableness could be addressed? I'm thinking, and so are a number of Democrats, that that might have been a really good idea. I know the millions that are losing their healthcare coverage at the moment, and the estimated 100 million more that will do so in the coming year would've liked to have been told the truth. This thing is in a flat spin and we haven't even gotten to the part where it is financially unsupportable. When the 2014 mid terms roll around and 100 to 160 million Americans are without healthcare, the policies "they could keep if they like them", I have to believe they are going to be headed to the polls furious.
We obviously have an electorate that doesn't really care much about international policy, business friendly policy within the borders of our country, but they may begin paying attention when it's their ox that's being gored. Think about it, we have the very same people who brought us this signature "ACA" program, with the nuclear codes. Witnessing what almost took place a month ago over Syria, Americans on both sides of the aisle should be in a cold sweat, we are adrift and anyone who thinks differently is seriously deluding themselves.
Please take this as the ramblings of a conservative, racist/bigot branded "domestic terrorist" who feels at his core that things really should be fair and balanced, that we really should help the truly helpless, that America should be free and governed by the Constitution, that Americans should make their own life choices and reap the rewards, or suffer the consequences. That this is the greatest country to ever exist under God's blue heaven, which still offers the most incredible opportunities to it's residents. Oh, yeah, and I hold the unpopular belief that everyone doesn't deserve a trophy, metaphorically speaking, trophies are for excellence, if you want one, go out and get yourself some excellence.
