I'm looking at the Republicans and the Democrats thinking that this whole situation around this country is in should be a wake up call but, apparently many are not getting it yet. Both have spent taxpayer dollars like it is an unlimited credit card for their own personal agenda and paybacks to a few that helped them get into office. This has left the average citizen disenfranchised as their leaders swing back and forth peddling for a few special interest. After watching this country go down due to inept leadership does either party really think they deserve to keep these leadership roles? People in both parties were well aware of the banking fiasco going down back in 2002 yet the party continued. I know this because I was one of the screamers among the masses. I have to say if we had not come to Iowa I would still be to blind to see what this country has done to it's base of small businesses which includes everything from small factories, small farming operations, stores and everything in between. The country assisted in killing it's basics and gave the people over to large corporates to abuse them. I don't care who argues or what argument anyone might make for corporations that have helped destroy this country none of it will change what has truly been happening at both the hands of Democrats and Republicans alike. You can all puff and argue all day long about how one has this and the other has that but if both parties are unwilling to seek out what is truly best for the people neither deserves to be in control or even have shared control. Neither have protected all of this great nation's citizens, both have spent and wasted resources and helped poison the country and refused to clean up their acts. Everyone can pat each other on the back, pass out congratulations, recommendations and proclaim respect for one another but very few deserve any admiration whatsoever of the average Joe on the street who has done no harm to anyone. You have all peddled, influence, worthless and unwanted legislation and spending onto an unsuspecting public. You have spread filth throughout the land in more ways than can be counted. You have all lost any credibility you may have as you have shown indifference to the people you are supposed to be representing. Not a select 3 or 4 percent whom you have accepted promises from. Those are the enemies of the middle class and the poor. For selling the American the cherished hope, ambition and aspirations of true freedom for nothing all will suffer. Even the innocent who had nothing to do with your schemes. The American public sold itself into debt blindly and no one said a word to them nor provided protection for them as they saw what was coming. Typically within the ranks of this government no one had enough courage to stand up for what is right, not one even when they knew the writing was on the wall. Now every politician seems to be in agreement "we need health care reform", yet none are looking to seek out a just and sustainable solution and God forbid they surely will not go after the culprits who have helped spread the cancer throughout the land. Instead it appears that most of you all wish to keep the giants alive and well and let the innocent die painfully slow death. Many have tried neutralized justice and get the upper hand but yet you cannot see what you have done as your blinded by your own self worth as if you think your positions will save you. I can assure that they won't. The dogs will tear at you continually as that is what you deserve.
