Our System is Broken

I always knew Obama was an appeaser and didn’t really buy into his hype (although I voted for him and supported him in the general election). But now he has done the opposite of hope for me. He has disheartened me and discouraged me in relation to politics today. I don’t really see the point any more.

Our system is fundamentally broken and none of our representatives actually represent their constituents any more. Now they only represent the large corporations which have paid them the most money. Even the Democrats are bought off. Almost every politician in office should be impeached on charges of bribery. This is ridiculous and it has gotten out of control.

Regulatory organizations are not only being gutted by the corporate controlled congress, but many of the very regulators assigned to police these corporations and Wall Street bankers end up getting high paying jobs after they leave as a bribe to look the other way while they are regulators.

For a while, I thought we could just use our vote as a hostage to get our representatives and even our President to start cracking down on this stuff. That isn’t really going to work. There will always be large groups of Democrats who will give away their hostage right away without any expectation of getting their demands met. In fact this is so expected that the President is actually basing his entire reelection campaign around that very strategy.

There are also always going to be a large number of stupid Americans who vote for the craziest candidates because they too are crazy and/or stupid. But Democrats seem to be stupid too these days. Our candidates aren’t all that much better and now some of the craziness of the Republicans has started to filter into our candidates too. For example, there is a Democrat running for local county office in my area who is a Creationist.

Oddly enough, it was Sarah Palin who called out the corporate bribery in politics today when she said, “What if anything do their donors expect in return for their investments… Our country can’t afford more trillion dollar thank you notes to campaign backers.” But we still can’t forget her money making scheme of buying mass amounts of her own book with her PAC money and then giving it out to candidates. Still how did Sarah Palin become the voice of the people?

So what do we do to fix the system? I really don’t know any more. I don’t even know if I will bother voting. All the candidates are on the take and it is just a matter of degrees now. Perhaps it has to get worse in order to get better. With that in mind, I might just have to vote for the craziest candidate and hope they just don’t kill us all. Maybe is a Republican wins, the Democrats who would normally be opposed to our current policies would be more motivated to do something instead of giving Obama the pass they wouldn’t have given to Bush on the same policies.

Look, if you have a better idea please let me know. I really don’t see any hope for change any more short of some sort of violent revolution… which I oppose for now. So, don’t complain to me that the Republicans would be worse. Duh, I know that. But unless the people reach a breaking point we aren’t going to do anything. So maybe worse is better. I’m open to alternatives. Suggestions?

    Unfortunately, I agree with you.

    I AGREE 100% I just answer questions on the ballot now ,but even then I don`t think my voice is heard…….

    I notice that everyone who complains about the Democrats not having a spine, are those who have no courage of their own and just want to give up. What right do you have to complain about their attitude when it’s no different from your own?

    At this point, it doesn’t matter who discouraged who first. If all we’re willing to do is lay down and let the Tea Party Republicans take over and destroy everything, then why should we deserve anything different?

    But are you really thinking of the millions of people who would suffer if we let that happen? The poor, the sick, the disadvantaged, the old, the young? All of the vulnerable who won’t be allowed to vote at all, if the corporate-backed TPRepublicans have their way? Are you really willing to throw all those people to a few loud politicians who think it’ll benefit them to be as greedy and heartless and stupid as possible? Can you sleep with that result as soundly as Rick Perry does with his execution body count, and the knowledge that some of those people were likely innocent?

    Evil triumphs when good people do nothing, right? If we give up, we will STILL be the ones responsible for everyone’s suffering to come. There’s no escaping our shared social responsibility, whether we accept it or not.

    Instead of giving up, and being surprised when Obama does the same, maybe we should all turn that trend to our advantage and do everything we expect of him ourselves. Fight for us. Get loud. Throw our weight around. Win. Just maybe, Obama will surprise us and start doing the same. If I’m wrong, at least we’ll have done all we can.

      Lol, I have laid out the plan to give Obama an incentive to act more progressive. No one likes that plan. There are no other candidates in the race right now and all you want to do is magically hope that Obama will just decide on his own to do the right thing with no incentive at all. That is beyond naive.

      The fact is that our system is broken. If Obama wins or if the craziest Republican wins this country still moves to the Right. The battle can’t be won in the election booth any more. Our elected representatives no longer represent us.

      I haven’t given up on making the world a better place, but I have given up on our political system as it currently stands. I am certainly open to suggestions, but your view that we should just go through the motions and pretend like we are making a difference when we aren’t is just not helpful.

      Obama is not the messiah. If Bush had these same policies you would be out there protesting (and you probably were), but when Obama does it, you have to defend him. I don’t. It isn’t about my gang colors, it is about actual policies. Right now, our political system is bought and paid for. I went down to DC and I talked to my representatives. The first thing they asked was, “Who do you represent?” I am sure their next question would have been, “How much can you donate?” but as i represented only myself they just snickered. So what would you suggest? What solutions do you have to fix our system or legalized bribery? I really want to know.

    Things are bad. If nobody bold steps up to the plate to fix this nation, then the US is going to crumble. I predict succession will happen and we will have many nations built out of the former US. And it is here that a new constitutions will be born for these nations and legalized bribery will become illegal.
