Democrats and republicans alike are to blame

gr03   Why does it seem only the greedy and narrow minded seem to get into positions of power? Even when you have a visionary in office the rest of the government seems to stop any true progress far as the progress towards bettering the world we live in.  I hear so much anti Obama rhetoric in the news and via the internet stating how Obama is the cause of all the ills of this world. When in fact the U.S. government does not run as a dictatorship it is a government based on democracy. The Senate and the House of Representatives are the two governing bodies that write the bills and shape most of our policies here in the U.S.. The president may be commander and chief but he must go through congress in order to achieve his or her goals. The president does have veto power but even that can be overridden by congress. 

  Sure go ahead and blame Obama, But remember to blame the whole of congress both democrats and republicans alike. Though the republicans will claim innocence but they too play there part. Choosing not to act or be a part of the process they too are responsible for the bills passed. If they just could get over the party system long enough they might be able to work together to make a bill or two that is both beneficial and not full of ear marks. Democrats and republicans alike are to blame for the mess our country is in. The republican years in the white house has lead us to our financial state as well as the democrats who didn’t oppose or try and safe guard those bills passed that kept our financial institutions from acting responsibly in the past.

I really love how the republicans state how democrats are putting the nation in debt when many of the bills and legislation the republicans proposed and passed has wasted just as much of the tax payers dollars. I really think there should be term limits on a congressional seat so new blood and ideas can flow into our federal government. When they are in power too long they seem to loose their perspective and forget it is we the people they represent not their personal views or opinions. I am kind of glad to see that this is turning out to be more of a anti incumbent election year than a anti-democrat or anti-republican. We need fresh and new ideas in the congress. To put it in a nutshell not one party or the other is more or less responsible for the state our country is in at the moment. Both parties have participated in the creation of our present state and are equally responsible.

   If you want change you have to make it happen.  Write your congressman, make petitions, peacefully protest for or against that you believe in. Most importantly become active in your local and federal governments by voting and lobbying for your causes. If we are not active in the politics of our day then we are just as responsible for the outcome. If I am to be responsible for any outcome it will be one of my own choice not that of someone else’s.

 

Well that’s enough Ranting for now.
