Last night i saw a poll about is it bush's fault. Well while i was reading the responces i relised that 1. the bouncers were not doing their job, as polls are not allowed. Talk about lazy and biased. 2. and more importantly how idiotic and ignorant many of the respondents were. And im not talking about those who just responded with off topic responces but those who were responding to the Mumm itself.
I guess it amazes me in a country with so much freedom that there are so many individuals who do not have a basic and simple understanding of their own goverment. They then think based off their blantent inability to understand and delve into the deomcratic process that they understand who is to blame for whatever they want to complain about.
These people should relise that to be able to have a reason to complain first you must vote, and second you must have a understanding about what you are complaining about. But no you see these same individuals seem to think that the media tells the whole story. When infact they do not they use to, but these days they are biased to one side of the political spectrum. All the news stations i know of are liberally biased except for fox news and some of the talk radio guys out there. They are conservative biased.
So what i fail to comprehend is why these individuals who want to lay blame on bush fail to lay blame where it should be layed. And these same individuals are happy to watched a biased media so long as they beleive its true. Thus why search out the other side of the equation and get teh whole story, when just the one side is good enough for them.
I really can not understand why anyone would even begin to think and believe that Bush is some kind of all powerful god of this country. If people would do some basic research they would relise that this goverment is not run by one man, but by congressmen and senators who we elect to represent us, and most times they do not represent what we truely want. So what happens are individuals who have no desire to understand want to find one lone scape goat without understanding the basics as well as the history of this goverment.
Let me enlighten some first, bills and laws are put on the presidents desk to be signed off on, however he can veto them if he sees them to be tottaly wrong, yet even a veto can be over turned by a 2/3 majority vote. Thus he is not all powerful, and the number of things that come across his desk are so numorious if he took the time to go thru them as you think he should and make a final desion all the time, we would never see anything get done. some of the smaller items are probably given to him in a brief and then sign or not, bigger issues like imigration and such become something he delves into.
Another thing to relise is tthat our governement does not allow bills and laws to go into effect while a president is in office this is a safty measure to insure we do not have a dictatorship on our hands. And historically all things started by a president take 4-6 years to come to a end, good or bad. thus the president who starts it does not get the credit for what they were working on.
Now onto some other things, we are all wanting to blame bush but the blame lies on clinton and his failings as a president. He cut our military to balance his budget after reagan increased it for our protection and freedom by strength. Now bush is suffering for this, because he does not have the troops he needs to fight a war.
And yet the president is commander in cheif, thus he does not need permission from congress or senate to goto war. He however did ask for their permission and their vote was for war in iraq. Now you do not start and stop war like you do a game of poker, whenever you want. War is not simple it is fought with bullets and bodies, it does not end just because you want it to.
Infact if we did pull out now, that war would follow our troops home, so my question is this, would you rather fight and die in your house protecting your freedom, or would you rather we let the enemy die in his land, while providing a people who has never had freedom the chance at it?
Come on people if you want to complain about things that are going on, take the time and learn about the process. And you will relise that the president is not all powerful, infact all that happens can be taken back to the congress and senate and their desions shape what the president can do. Thus if he needs more money and troops, but they refuse to give it to him, then of course hes gona be short and hurting. Thus their ability to stifle what he needs to win a war, is not his fault but theirs. And rmember these are the men and woman you voted into office to represent your ideals, yet if they fail to do that then you should remove them. And as they are replaced you will see a change. Do not think the president is all powerful and some kind of top ceo of the goverment if this were true he could fire congressman and senators with ease, when infact he can not only we can.
So get behind the power of knowledge and learn how the true democratic process works to understand if the president were to blame for everything you want to complain about, you would not call him a president but a dictator. Understand and then you might be able to relise that big goverment hurts more then it helps. Who cares if you get assitance from the goverment for your medical bills and such, if you didnt have to pay so much in taxes you could pay for it yourself. But liberals want you reliant on them so they can control you. They want your cash so you have to come to them and ask for help. you do not relise most goverment programs are not needed, if the cash to run them would stay in your pockets.
For those claiming the rich get the biggest breaks, think about it. The more you make the more you pay, so when a tax cut is made we all get the same cut just those with more cash to start with seem to get more back. While this is true they are also the ones who can pay employees and create new jobs when they have more cash. Next time a bum on the street highers you to rake his lawn and payes you for it, then you can complain about the rich, untill the poor pay your wages stop complaining and start relising that the rich are who pay you for your work.
Learn about the goverment and use common sence before believing the media hype. If the world were such a great place, we would not have bad people in it, we would not need jails, and trust me blaming rape, and killings and thefts on the goverment shows pure undieing stupidity. Because there have and always will be bad people no matter how much cash they have in their pockets. And when there are bad people you need to have good people willing to protect you. And there are times when you need people so good they are willing to protect a person they know nothing of, even to their death to bring them the same freedom they have. Yes soldiers in iraq see something bigger then the media is showing you. Ask yourself the next time you hear about another death in iraq why those soldiers are counted?! Why is their death ended by a number on the news? If their life is so important then why is it marginalized to a mere number when they Die?
