So recently I’ve been hearing a lot about Acorn (I still don’t know who they are) and that the Obama administration is going to destroy the country. Weirdo blogs and Fox News and CNN (to an extent) are making things up. Obama is a Nazi Socialist who is going to turn America into the USSR and take away all our healthcare and raise our taxes to 90% and throw us in jail. Blah blah blah.
This morning I saw that Jimmy Carter came out and called racism on a lot of these nuts. Good for him. It’s about time someone questioned what the hell is going on.
For 8 years, George Bush screwed up everything he touched. He got us into a war in Iraq we had no business being in (I never thought there were WMDs), he let business do whatever it wanted and wreck the economy, he pushed social “values” that were one-sided and made matters worse. All along the way I was told “support the President,” “respect the President and his office.” It became unpatriotic to disagree with the man. What do we have to show for it?
- High deficits
- Corporations who think they can screw the consumer (especially insurance companies)
- The highest unemployment in years
- Middle Class Americans getting screwed
- Higher energy prices
Now the tea-baggers (who don’t even know what this means) are out there creating a fuss. Where is all the civility and respect they demanded while Bush was in office?
It’s time for people to stop believing everything they read or see on TV. Use some judgement and read different news sources that provide multiple points of view. George Bush created a world of problems and Obama is actually trying to fix them. I don’t agree with everything he does, but I do agree that the insurance companies need to be reigned in. I do agree that the private sector needs some regulation. I do agree that common Americans need protection. He’s doing all of this.
Have an open mind and debate policy. Let’s stop with the bullshit and lies and name calling. We’re not a nation of four year olds.
