Unless we change this system of government, this once-great nation of ours will become just ‘one of many others’ that became too corrupt to function for the benefit of the majority of The People.
Anybody who has been watching these bozos [my apologies to Bozo the Clown] for the past few weeks has to come to the realization that the system of governance set up in the 18th century does not function in the high-tech, money-flushed 21st century.
Why do we continue to pretend that it works? Is it a Sacred Cow or something?
Are we too afraid to change it? Do we not know how to change it? Perhaps we are apprehensive about what the new government will look like and how it will function?
What, pray tell, is still ‘functional’ here in the 21st century that was ‘functional’ in the late 1700’s? If our Founding Fathers were reincarnated, they would find the 21st century too mind-boggling to comprehend. Yet, they would feel quite comfortable visiting the Capitol, the House and the Senate in operation. Is that odd or what!
The Sacred Cow that is our current form of governance ought to be euthanized, stuffed and put on display at the Smithsonian in DC. People could come and visit, weep, and tell their grandchildren how things were in the old days, just like they would while looking at a stage coach or the steam engine.
I suspect that none of our Founding Fathers would have suspected that their form of governance would not have been modified over the years to suit the changing needs of our nation. We are 9 generations removed from that time, from those wise men. Much has changed in this Land of the Free. A hundred other nations adopted the idea of democracy since our brave men signed those documents. We hold no patent on democracy.
Ours may have been the first, but sadly today, it is not the best. The corruption of money and power-hungry corporate interests have made a mockery of the beautiful plan that our Founding Fathers created. The general Welfare mentioned in the Preamble is a farce. It has been stomped upon and diluted. This is no longer a government of, by and for The People.
The dream has become a nightmare. It’s over. Wake up, America! Wake up before they take everything away from you.
