yesterday was every American’s favorite day… Tax Day! so to celebrate, I headed down to the private Richmond Federal Reserve building with my family. little did I know that thousands of my brothers and sisters would show up, even in the rain! I hope some eyes were opened.
most of the media tried to paint this as a “right” movement, something for the “left” to laugh at. Fox is the most guilty for trying to take credit for what was truly a grassroots movement. this is not about the left or the right.. this is about the left AND the right! we are fed up with a Congress that no longer represents US. what are we going to do about it? the first step is to get informed about what is happening.
what we all need to keep in mind is that these policies are not just of Obama and his crony cabinet but all of our representatives, both to the right and the left. don’t forget, even 1/3 of the Republicans in the House voted FOR the bailout. Bush, Obama, AND McCain put it together. it was pushed through in record time, even though nobody had even read it! the wasteful spending of the Bush administration has not changed one bit… it’s only intensified.
my only wish is that I had let myself realize all this 8 years ago, instead of turning a blind eye to it because it was “my” party and trusting that they were using their powers for good. I hope those of you who are “Republicans” can admit to yourself that everything you are mad about Obama doing, Bush was doing for the past two terms. and I hope those of you who are “Democrats” can admit to yourself that everything you hated about Bush for the past 8 years, Obama is causing or allowing to happen at an even more exponential rate.
uninvest yourself in a person, or a party, and invest yourself in your country. that is the only way things will change.
this article is interesting, take a few minutes and let me know what you think. last thing of the day: <3 32.
