I've heard people talk about term limits for political office and while this is all well and good, I believe it does not go far enough. How about limiting the number of consecutive terms members of a particular family can be in office. I for one do not look forward to having another Bush as President; in this case I imagine it will be Jeb in 2016. I also believe that the Bush family might have chosen to endorse Jeb as opposed to the one "We the People" suffered through from 2000 to 2008. I think that in the particular example that I have mentioned, the country would be spared the indulgences of a clan that only seeks to promote its own self interests and the worst part of it is that they get away with it. When is starting a war, based on lies and deceit not the action of a criminal?
The GOP claims that the Health Care Reform Repeal Bill is the mandate that was implied by the results of the past mid-term elections, but is this truly what the American public wants. While some may not be completely satisfied with the watered down version of the Health Care Reform Act (no public option) that did pass, it was at minimum a step in the right direction. For far too long, America's Health Care system have failed too many of its citizens and the strides that the Obama administration has made in this regard is a welcomed change to what "We the People", got the 8 years prior (war, debt, reduction in the middle class). In my humble opinion, when all of those fixtures on Capitol Hill complain and fight so adamantly, as the Republicans and Big Business have, against ideas such as those proposed by the Obama administration, the ideas must be helping wrong people (in the Republicans eyes). These bills and reform acts must be actually helping the people of this …
Can one get excited about anything these days? Maybe I should be more specific. Can anyone get excited about anything that isn't a material possession these days? I for one, have my doubts. It seems that since all of mankind's current knowledge was put on the internet, it became very uninteresting. Think about it. An individual can find out anything about anything and what do most people spend their time doing? Watching Youtube and the plethora of boobs (not breasts) that make stupid faces or act outrageous for no reason than to act outrageous. And I can't say that I blame them or disagree with them because I have wasted my fair share of time on the Star Wars kid; Fred and the many other stupid, yet funny viral videos. Maybe the reason for the Internet (scientific discovery and collaboration) should reconsidered. Maybe people would feel more of a thirst for knowledge if it weren't so readily available. Like they say absence make the heart grow fonder.
