Granted everything is a big messy knot when it come to politics, I am appalled as to how both parties are currently acting. They are playing the blame game, rather than worrying about what is good for the people of this nation.
Yes, President Obama thinks, the blame is the republicans, whereas Senator Boehner thinks President Obama is being petty for not letting go of Obamacare. Really? I personally think the two are acting like two teenage girls fighting over a boy.
People are legitimately worried about the fact that they will not get any income this week. And if they don’t get an income this week, how are they supposed to pay for their daily living expenses. In addition, this shutdown is affecting the the stock market. With stocks are headed downward and the threat of a default looming over our head, the government really needs to put their minds together and focus on what is necessary and what is unnecessary.
In light of this, there are there are 4 major things to think about:
1. The government needs to look back on its fiscal budgets for every sector and figure out how to clear that national debt. Because eventually that national debt will affect our children, our grandchildren and even us in the near future. I mean, seriously, cut out the fancy napkins and cups. It doesn’t really contribute to anything except for comfort. And, that is our money from our hard worked incomes. I mean who are they to spend my money on something so trivial.
2. Make people respond to what’s important! This unending cycle of squabbles will never end if we, the people, do not stand up for ourselves. We need journalism to pervade our lives. Stop letting people become people who are sucked in to reality shows and sports, because that is what is making our generation dumber and even dumber. Journalism is the key to any successful country because it will keep everyone in check.
3. Government workers should not be be ridiculously paid. Seriously, why is Congress getting paid ridiculous amounts of money? I understand that they may be the smarter one and putting all their years of schooling into what they have today. But, judging by what is going on, it seems that the incessant amount of lobbying and money involved in the government is only weighing in on their incentive to work for money NOT the people. The government is for the people not for those in the government.
4. Lastly, the bipartisan government is really pulling us a part. I agree that changing our government system can be potentially dangerous. But as of right now, letting this 2 party system government may kill us on the long run. It’s only giving us extremists on both sides of the party, which means that the indispensable ideas are not being heard.
If everyone just gave a little thought to how the world is working, I think the world can be a much better place.
