I don't have the attitude of lay down and cry. I have the attitude that NOTHING is getting done in this country and the people that are going to suffer are the young. I took ONE semester of government in high school and that is all I had to take through out all of my school including college. No one is educated the youth of this nation on how to save money, how to be self-sufficient and how the government works. All you hear is go to the voting booth. You aren't taught or even told to find out as much as you can about a candidate. I waited for 6 hours in line for vote for president in 2008. I would say 80% of those people voted straight off of what their parents were voting. Note: This was on a college campus. I don't know how the whole nation isn't up in arms fighting against the complacency that is present today. Nothing changes. We all sit around here on DB arguing over the merits of several policies but the majority of us are not fully educated on what bills that are getting passed entail and none of us (or at least most of us) are doing anything to have ANY SORT OF CHANGE!!! That is the premise Obama ran on... Change! He can't do it on his own! Politicians are voted into power by the people but then they get there and go on their own way. I live in Florida and our current governor continually says I wasn't elected to be popular! YES YOU WERE!!! It is their job to do what WE want!!!! Why are we letting them give all our money to other people, the rich, the poor, companies, etc whatever you believe in LET THEM KNOW. Make them do it. Don't let your taxes line their pockets!!!
Sorry it became a rant... It just frustrates me to know that nothing is getting done.
