Once upon a time, there was a charismatic president of the United States, and people disliked him because of his skin color and “liberal ways.” his Congress of fools voted mercilessly against his policies regardless of how good they were.
“You’re a socialist” they would exclaim. A GOP candidate even told him “No one ever died from not having healthcare.” Fortunately, I have a good insurance plan under Obamacare; if not I’d be a goner. As for Socialism, it ain’t all bad; it’s selfless nature if you ask me.
A rally for “the 99%” now had a muddled message, but even when it was clear as crystal, nothing changed. S&P is down, while oil prices and corporate greed are at an all time high. A new law was passed to forgive student loans, but why don’t we just “nip the problem in the bud.”
If 2012 is the end, we could be better off that way. As for me, I’ll keep my bank account stocked up a bit and my credit in check. I’ll stay hopeful for “change” because it’s what we need. In a place where two of the same can’t marry and wage gaps exist, something has to be different and that’s just the gist.
If wanting to help the working class makes me a liberal (with a negative connotation), I’ll take it as a compliment.
