The corporate takeover of the United States has not steered the country in an agreeable direction. It has brought hopelessness and despair. A few have been rewarded lavishly with wealth, power and fame. The majority, however, have experienced a gradual unraveling of togetherness and life as we know it. Even worse, there has been a regression in our democracy.
The lawlessness that abounds is due to a one-two punch to our lives: deregulation from Reaganomics and a Democratic Party of Neoliberal economics. Little can be done now to stave off fascism as the masses are gathered waiting for anybody, Trump included to sound the clarion call for violent political change.
The populace has indeed been abused, lied to, and decimated. It is therefore amenable to action and can swing the bat or fire the shot that changes the future. The pent-up anger from disillusionment and calloused hearts has the blessing of the evangelical church, the right-wing political system and the common man’s desperation.
The problem with all of this is it can’t be stopped. It is intertwined and married to the consequences of the greed of the oligarchs and the unscrupulous politicians who do their bidding. Bad decisions from an avaricious pursuit of the domination of the global oil market have led to losses that amount to trillions in the sands of the Middle East with hundreds of thousands dead and a rising People’s Republic of China establishing relations with the Taliban for a cut of precious metals, especially lithium.
The future is in jeopardy because of yesterday’s greed. The blind are leading the blind and nobody’s meeting the public’s needs. Must we continue these actions? Unfortunately, even a unified progressive uprising could have a hard time fixing these issues because our election system is already good as dead. However, it would be good to at least try.
If you want to help, you have to believe the truth or we will continue to follow these oligarchs to our graves. Does anyone believe we can continue with deregulated capitalism and succeed anymore with our quarterly earnings focus while China is used to exercising long-term goals the main one being our political and economic demise?
The game is up and anybody with a brain knows it is and that it is rigged against citizens. And yet we are watching our dubious oligarchs take away our very lives and the potential of our country with the help of the politicians they have bribed. Why do they behave in this way? It’s because they only care for their current state of being, no thought for future generations. They believe the huge nest egg that they have accumulated is enough to satisfy their needs – for the guiding mantra in their souls is “after me, the end”.
We can’t allow this apocalyptic attitude to prevail to the detriment of our country’s fate. We need to persuade these human obstacles to get out of the way and let democracy have a chance, let our collected mantra of democracy, liberty, fraternity prevail. Only in this way do we stand a chance.
The Republican Party is working hard to destroy the will of the people and democracy in America by their so-called election reforms and are doing so in full view. These agendas typically and usually have racist and oligarchic undertone. It is time to unreservedly call them out.
If you want to unite this nation, you must do what’s right for all its people. If not, the unfair have and have nots structure will persist, generously bloating the wealth of the unsympathetic at the top while the rest go empty with their voices silenced so that they do not disrupt the suffocation of the opinion of the people. Some people worry about the Second Amendment but we are surely losing our liberty due to the violation of the first.
