The founding fathers set out to create a country where people could be free and live as they will with no government hovering over them. They fought and gave their lives so that there existed a country with liberty and justice for all. Now gaze upon what it has become. The people that the founding fathers fought for are no longer the people they once were. When the people of a country find it easier and Better to live off a government instead of working themselves, what is the state of an economy. People no longer dream of great things, of self sufficiency, or expect to do anything meaningful as they will be in a cubicle or dead end job. These people see the government as a personal ATM that every month spits out money. The media has risen far beyond that simply job of being a watchdog, now it has become a political tool. Political parties use it as a means to influence the populations, either dumbing them down through extensive programming or biased reporting. People are no longer skeptical and therefore do not seek truth from what they are given. If the media was truly fair and balenced, then, people would be making decisions on proper information. The government has now risen above that of a servant of the people. It has become an aristocracy driven system as the average American can rarely attain office. The government is no longer of the people as only a small fraction of the incumbents are truly of the people. The government is no longer by the people as it is disapproved by many yet still runs on due to the ignorance of a majority. Finally, the government is no longer for the people for it has only the self interests of those in it and the personal projects of those in it as its agenda. The government is no longer of the people, by the people, or for the people. America has fallen, yet not all hope is lost. We can still recover from this ignorance and ever increasing debt so long as we are not divided. As it can be seen, great divides are on the rise in this country, democrat or Republican, Black, Hispanic, White, Woman, Man. All of these have been orchestrated to divide us and make us weak. If we do not overcome our differences and rise above political correctness pushed upon us by the media which is seeming to be out to divide us, America is doomed. Unless we the people come together, we the people will fall.
