My political philosophy: Dare to dissent!

I was born too late. I was raised by a pair of hippies & was taught from an early age to queston ALL AUTHORITY. I wish more people, peope with the financial means to do so, could make an attempt to better society through the political processes set forth in this nation’s Constituton. I’m not so sure how our political system has gotten so far off-course, but the fact is the system is broken.

Our current poitcal climate allows for rich egomaniacs to force their warped ideas upon people, including society’s most vulnerable citizens.

The governor of my state, Florida, vowed to ” run the state like a business”. And that is what he is doing. Its* really* bad when the far-right-leaning Pensacola News-Journal runs a eries of stories abou the misdeeds of the governor.

Sure enough, CEO Voldermort is slashing serices for education{ my” pet cause”} from pre-K all the way to college funding.

Here is a question for you, Governor: How are we supposed to produce the next generation of ” employees”{ who at one time were known as Floridians} will lag behind their peers in other places. If he { Voldermort} wants to save the state money in the long run, shouldn’t he INVEST money into publc education. No, filthy-rich big moneymen such as he don’t NEED public schools…his ilk can afford pricy private schooling from kindergarten through college. Private education is beyond the means of most families, so investing in education just makes sense.

Democrats are not any better. They too, are bosom buddies with Big Coporation.

Will someone with real solutions & no ties to Big Corporations please stand up? We need flks whose main concern isn’t the next election{ And winning it!} democrat, Republican….there is no difference.

And remember… CHANGE{ real change} is good. This isn’t our great-grandparents’ world anymore.

    And yet the ideology toy seem to espouse is such that you probably hate the TEA party, who are dissenting against the government in exactly the manner your laud.

    I hate how the TEA arty is now fun & funded by the extreme right-wing Reublican arm. I’m not against taxaton, but I am FORresponsible government spending.

    Sarah,

    GIven the nature of politicians and the American political / government systems, can you honestly say that there’s a way to get the government, especially the federal government, to spend responsibly without removing a lot of the taxes they feed off of?

  • Sarah Beth  On 06/13/2011 at 10:58 pm

    We just need new politicians & a new system.

    True, but how do you – within the realms of the plausible – get rid of the old system except through coercive action such as reducing their available funds?
