Re: An open letter to the Democrats and the Republicans
Oh, Ron Paul.
I had a massive as fuck post about all this political shit written out, but computer at work froze and I lost it. So fuck it. Plus, politics suck. I can't do shit about all the ridiculous shit that goes on, because the whole process is retarded as fuck. The whole system needs fixing, and that's not going to happen unless something hardcore drastic happens.
Party system is stupid and only divides people who should be all working together to make shit better for the people of their country. The whole lobbyist bullshit should be illegal. We shouldn't be in any wars now, we shouldn't be spending anywhere near as much on military as we do now, we shouldn't be giving shitholes foreign aid, etc. We should tax the rich more. But we should have a good universal healthcare program, and it's absolutely goddamn horrible that we don't already when pretty much every non-shithole country does. The people who have it worst in america are lower middle class people who are usually pretty decent dudes and work, but can't afford decent healthcare. It's pretty goddamn bad that you're better off being in prison, as far as getting standard healthcare goes, than working at your average service job.
The debt thing, eh. Yeah, it's fucking ridiculous, like pretty much everything political. But the odds of the US actually defaulting are pretty damn low. On the other hand, it's also pretty shameful on the rest of the goddamn world that they're so reliant on the US that if it goes down they all go with it. Seriously, seems to me that everyone is doing shit wrong.
