Why do we always elect the wrong people?

I'm not much surprised by anything that happens in Washington these days.  Actually,  I stopped being surprised in the late 60s.  What we are going through now, and the tales of woe we tell is just a variation of the same story about what's been happening to the American People for the past 60+ years.  No matter what the story is,  it always boils down to the same thing.  The people are being shafted continuously by the same people we ELECT!

 

We elect Republicans and we (rightfully) complain, then we elect Democrats and we still rightfully complain.  Then we go back to the Republicans and things don't improve, and then we go with the Democrats etc etc. and yet our story never changes.  This country has been led by the same two parties, and, even with the occasional changing of whichever party is in the majority, the country never EVER improves. It just slowly continues on the same  downward race to the bottom while the ultra-rich and powerful keep growing in number.

 

Neither party's "leadership" has changed the direction if the United States outside of an occasional minor slowing of our descent.  It's like every election is reduced to two choices, bad and a little worse.  It's like choosing between two murderers.  We reject the one who killed ten people but we support the one who only killed NINE people (because he has to be SOO much better than the other one.  And when the one we pick keeps on killing we act surprised.

 

Realistically, you can almost understand why younger people take their sides and keep looking for someone to save them (and that someone never comes).

 

But there is really no excuse for anyone in our age range to ignore the fact that we have been led by TWO corrupt and self-serving political parties that only serve the ones who bought their campaigns.  WE of all people have SEEN this happen over and over again with our own eyes, but we still keep the same parties in power.  We pick one of them and then blame the other one for everything wrong that ever happens to this country and her people.

 

The Democrats and Republicans have had all the power to ruin, or to fix this nation.  There is no one else to blame, but we keep following the ones who harm us.  And they will continue to harm us until we (right and left) UNITE and remove these parties.

 

This is NOT a two-party system and there are other people out there who are smarter and more honest than what we have now. 

 

Just take a moment to consider that.with a clear-eyed view and to remember these people donm't elect themselves!

 

Just some food for thought
