I am an eternal optimist Yunzer, however, I am an old man who's seen too much senseless war and too much poverty. All of it driven by hatred and corporations and poor government. America is supposed to be the richest nation on Earth and look how we take care of our people. We give all the breaks to those who need it the least. We shut down Welfare for those who need it the most, and then give that money to the corporations in the form of tax breaks, and again to those who need it the least.
This nation has been in an almost constant state of war since I was born. The only war brought on by an attack of our people was World War 2. The war we started as a result of September 11th, 2001, was bogus.
Politicians, a long time ago, came to the realization that war is good for business(Corporations). Both the Democrats and the Republicans have shared the White House almost equally in my years, and both parties have had blood on their hands in sending our military all over this world fighting for 'Democracy.'
It's okay if you want to take over and 'Reform' the Democratic Party Yunzer. I am a bit ashamed to say that I was a member of the Democratic Party for over 30 years. I too, was a 'Bleeding Heart Liberal' in my youth. Hell, I even believed murderers could be rehabilitated.
But, politicians once they get a taste of that 'big money', are like sharks once they get a taste of blood. They will not give it up.
Both of these 217 year old political parties have tasted the money, and hunger for more. So much that they care less about their fellow man.
You are either young and hopeful, or, old and stubborn and refusing to accept history.
Either way, good luck .
