"we go blind, when we've needed to see"

"We go blind, when we've needed to see." - Damien Rice.

That is how I feel about our country at this time. The people have been blinded by false hope and lies. The people have blindly followed their "leader" without knowing what it is he truly stands for. The nation is blindly, slowly going to follow their leader into socialism. It sounds good on paper and with flashy words, "redistribute the wealth." Take from the rich, and give to the poor. Sure, it sounds like a grand idea. Take from the hard working, and give to the lazy. Does that sound good to everyone? Are you willing to let the Government take your hard-earned money and give it to your lazy bum of a neighbor who says, "why work, when the government will take care of me?"

The ideas of socialism and communism sound good on paper, but they never work. Just look at history. What happened to the Soviet Union and its people? Look at the way China used to be, and how it is now. Look at all the other small, poor countries that let socialism and communism take over. These governmental systems are weeds. They look beautiful, but they choke the spirit of the people until any spirit of patriotism is snuffed out.

Now, we have opened our door to the idea of socialism. It will not be long before it has taken hold, and the roots are far to grand to be destroyed.

I can feel the down fall of this once great country. Not just because of the socialistic ideas, but also because no great super power last forever. At some point the power becomes to great, and it all starts to slowly fall apart until it is just another page in a history book. If you do not believe me, look at history. The Egyptian Empire, the Persian Empire, the Greek Empire, and the Roman Empire, none of the once great empires exist anymore because at one point the power became to great. More recently the British Empire, it is no longer what it used to be. Yes, the British Empire is still holding strong, but the words, the British Empire, do not hold the same weight the way they did hundreds of years ago.

I am worried about the future of this country, for the future of its people.

I don't know much about politics, but I was so happy about the US election. I'm not saying your wrong, cuz I def' don't know what's going on. I was overjoyed about him winning, but when I heard from other people about this... I'm starting to think.

I'm not saying that I don't believe you, and I'm also not saying that I agree. I guess I'm nuetral... maybe it's because I'm from Canada... that i may not understand this. But I find it interesting... I guess all I can do is see what happens.

But I agree with what you said, about the fact that it's wrong to take away money from people who work so hard, yet those lazy bums get payed... but I think some people deserves it too. But I don't know... I think we do have that kid of system in some parts of Canada, and I must admit that it's stupid how some people gets paid for doing nothing... and I see lazy people wasting their lives instead of working.

lol I'm babbling. but I'm glad you posted this =)

Thank you for your thoughts on the matter. Yes, as you said thre may be some people that deserve the extra help. This type of system sounds great. BUt in the end, does it do more good or bad?

I think we all just have to wait and see what happens...

I agree with everything you said, sista.

Sure, Obama was a smooth talker, but that's all he was. He told people what they wanted to hear and he made promises that he will most likely not be able to keep. In his short 21 months as a U.S. Junior Senator, he passed no piece of legislation at all. And he is proven to be a very left-wing liberal based on his voting records. He voted 99% of the time against tax payers. He will raise taxes and he will use that extra money to further his personal and political gains, no doubt about it. That's what all Democrats do.

Unfortunately, the people of American were blinded and they chose to vote him into office. I guess they want bigger government and higher taxes.
They'll get what's coming to them, that's for sure.

Two months, and we'll see what his first course of action is as President. I pray God is with him and his advisors, and that He will continue to protect the United States, even if our people may have made a big mistake...

My friend and I have a theory that he is the anti-christ. However that is just the crazy talk of overthinking-conspiracy theory-nutcase girls...hahah.

But the crazies are sometimes right....
