The Real Problem In Politics

Tonytown.com - Lots of political partiesYou’ve all heard me say it repeatedly, I’m an equal opportunity hater when it comes to political parties. To date, I haven’t been convinced to re-evaluate this stance, and to be honest I am tired of questioning my own stance for the sake of social and economic concessions.

Let me explain my logic on this. It really all comes down to misrepresentation. In this, I mean the root of problems we all have an opinion on has been consistently compromised to achieve other agendas that happen to be promoted or supported by large(r) voting demographics.

By subscribing to the idea that we can only make a difference if we support the two major political parties here in the U.S., we effectively cripple our opinions and values. This isn’t about whether or not you’re a hardline conservative or liberal…its about your representing your individual values in our government.

At this time, the two major political parties have at one time or another supported or promoted diametrically opposing views, but the majority of the time, subscribing to the perception that these views are in fact the only two options available to voters is incredibly fallacious.

Example: PersonX is just another citizen that has values and opinions, said person feels that abortion needs more regulation, and also feels that the current level of gun control needs deregulation in accordance with their perception of both the bible and their understanding of their constitutional rights. Under the current system of representation, this person has only one ability to make that change directly, their vote.

Due to the current voting powers and the political parties integration into the voting system, PersonX is quite incapable of finding adequate representation in the government. Why? Because currently they are fed the perception that if they do not vote for either Republicans or Democrats, they will achieve neither.

This idea is why we’re essentially socially and economically upside down right now. Right now PersonX can use heir voice, and convince others that his or her opinions are right, but when it comes down to getting all those people PersonX has convinced to align accordingly…PersonX’s vote and that of his subscribers will only be capable of achieving a half win because the only people they are offered to vote for are either Republican or Democrat.

Resolving this issue is complex, because our government is now incredibly intertwined with large business organizations that would also lose their sway if they weren’t capable of influencing votes and legislation to a majority of voters by influencing the two political parties that hold. Thus Big Business will never support the idea that people shouldn’t concede their vote to achieve only a portion of their goals.

Another example: a vast majority of voters do not feel we should be pursuing military agendas all over the globe as if most of the world were at war with us. Yet here we are, constantly pushing our own military into other countries that are most often demanding we not get involved. I am the first person to subscribe to a national defense strategy that permits and promotes our freedoms. This is a very commonly held belief, I ask people, I ask my friends, and I talk with complete strangers…just to see where my own opinions stand against others. While a majority of people are ignorant of our current state of military affairs, those that did show an interest ALL expressed the same sentiment I did. Now if all these voters have expressed this sentiment, why on earth are we fighting all over the world??? I know I voted for a guy that favored trade-building over war and regime changes. But…nothing changed? Where is my representation?

The answer is simple, the two major political parties in the U.S. due to their party affiliation are in fact forced into making concessions that reflect the goals of the party, not the people they represent. By representing the party and not the citizen, the government representative is no longer capable (or willing) to adequately repesent the opinions and beliefs of their constituency. Simply put, the Republicans and Democrats are only capable of serving their own agenda, and not yours. There are rare exceptions to this, but these are exceptions to the norm and unfortunately regularly cause the nation to be completely misrepresented in almost every facet of government, military action, and diplomacy.

If this wasn’t enough for you to understand my point of view, your should then simply take my word for it and research who you’re voting for, you may find that the person you put on such a big pedestal rarely holds the values you thought you were voting for. IMO…the best politicians are the ones that have solutions for limiting government involvement and regulation.


Healthcare reform and the next generation.

Now to start off, this kind of rant is likely to rankle even a few friends noses…but if you’re reading this, there are things about my point of view that are bound to encourage tip-toeing around argument or comment. Please don’t do that in this one. If you think I am wrong, cool…say so, and say WHY.

We have a new generation. Smarter. Better education. Infinitely healthier. Better sense of true freedom. Bottom line, helping to our youngest generation doesnt exactly mean “helping themselves.”

They are also angry.

In the last 20 Years…we’ve picked up the torch left us by by the big protests…

…racism is only taught by the what we consider the dregs of society.

…sexism is no longer about women’s rights, but about whether people can be together as a couple and the same sex…the most stupid and inane article of…LOL…government involvement ever gifted to those of us in the states…you know…the ones that supposedly enjoy FREEDOM. We as a people have a whole lot better things to do that to worry about who is allowed to be married…sheesh.

…teaching the truth is finally starting to become more important in education than feeding publishers afraid of casting a different light on our history.

…and at the center of it all is an attention to the youth of this country, and a response that can NOT be ignored.

Now. We have an entire WORLD of examples of how healthcare works, and how it doesn’t. It comes back to stabilizing insurance practices, creating universal records, and making healthcare available to everyone.

Proponents are the ones that arent worried about the money, because they see more people getting the care they need. They think that money is an illusion and the less we concern ourselves with it the less effect it will have on our government. making money less valuable makes enemies of every financier in the world. This makes good ideas crumble to dust.

Protestors are the ones crying “SOCIALISM IN THE US!” like a bunch of idiots. Got news for you, the only people that know socialism in the US are the ones that have made it here from China and North Korea…i.e. virtually NONE of you.

Let me tell you what I think.

I think that our healthcare system only provides to those with the means to trade for it in cash or loan.
This will not do.
I think that our youth sees this as an injustice, and will quickly act to make a difference, in election career, or deed.
More youth will get involved.
I think that the regular practice in the healthcare industry of nickel and diming the insurance companies should be every bit as criminal as actual fraud.
A healthier youth means a less fiscally attractive medical profession as the need for emergency care levels off.
..and finally a government figurehead that’s willing to try to get something to improve the status quo.

And again the youth…who have to sit there and watch us gibber away like idiots because everyone that voted for Bush…ever…is feeling pretty damn stupid about now.
So much that they can only make fun of a president that is now having to deal with the poor decisions of the last decade.

So ask yourselves what YOUR kids think of the jokes you make about our President. Try to explain to them why you continually throw borderline racist jokes out at work under the impression we arent going to be offended.

Ask yourself what’s YOUR solution. Seriously. If your only solution is to bitch about whoever is in office, you don’t even deserve an opinion. Stop voting. I wont even mind if you’re complaining the rest of your life if you just don’t vote. Don’t get me wrong, I think everyone should vote, under the premise that they are capable of objective and considerate deliberation leading them to a sincere and educated view. Yeah right…

Tell you what.

You know it’s not as much about my being so liberal it makes you cry.

It’s about the continual racism and lack of forethought in presenting a viable stance on WHY you’re totally an idiot about anything having to do with progress. It’s effing okay to waltz into another country and albeit subjugate a hundred thousand people in the hopes of incarcerating a few hundred, but heaven forbid we make mandatory electronic medical records or identification. It’s okay to ignore the pleas of more than twenty starving countries because we’re too busy creating an enemies for our children to fight.

DO you think I am talking about YOU?

I am talking about thinking globally and acting locally. Many of the nations largest humanitarian organizations make absolutely no effort whatsoever to make a difference in their own country. What does that say about us? Is it that we’re indifferent to our own? I just want to slap everyone playing a party ticket instead of forming educated opinions. Stop arguing politics and argue solutions! Stop being a hateful asshat because you’re so inbread and cant see that the current president could have already done FAR worse in continuing ANYTHING affiliated with Bush’s administration that we didn’t have to. Instead of being an example in our own neighborhoods, we’re ignoring them and spending all the time we can away or outright ignoring local issues.

I had to get THREE xrays to get one tooth pulled because the local dentists insist that their XRay were better than the previous ones.
I got stuck for an MRI that was seriously $8000 more than the average cost of MRI’s because of a stupid recommendatin that this was the best (it wasn’t i checked when I got stuck for the bill).
So for all you people crying FREEDOM!
You damn well free to pay for mt damn MRI. It’s YOUR opinion and vote that makes this ripoff possible.

okay rant off.

Really ticked off. If this legislation had come through when Nixon, or even Clinton had tried to get it working, I’d be in a MUCH better place now financially…probably healthier to boot.
