friends with each other, but I do need you to be friendly." So when these same kids see the grown-up (debatable) leaders of the most democratic country in the world bickering and bashing each other......well, I start to lose a little hope.
The positive thing on the end of the election season is, we are done being subjected to the bickering. Well, for the most part. If you are one of those sad people that feel the need to listen to MSNBC, FOX News, or are really needing to blame others for all that is wrong, so you listen to Rush Limbaugh, then you can go on listening to the political garbage and finger pointing each and every day.
Alright, I will quickly lay out my ideas for ending the TV rants. The rants that go on in the car, and at the dinner table, well I can't stop those. My plan for fixing politics, and therefore almost everything else in the US, would be to 1. publicly fund all elections and campaigns with tax dollars, 2. all political offices come with term limits, and 3. Reverse Citizens United.
I know I must be on to something as even Chuck Woolery agrees that term limits would be a good thing:
Well, this will be my last political rant on here. Although I guess I should put a qualifier on that. If in 2 to 4 years things get even crazier than this last 2 years, then maybe I will be on here again saying how I am still dumbfounded as to how things have not changed, but as long as we are forced to go along with this highest bidder, 2 party system we have now, I am not sure we have much chance of changing things. Its not in a politicians interest to change the system, and we, the voting public, are too easily distracted to stay focused on the changes we need to make for long term change.
By the way, tomorrow I am holding my first "No Office Day" and I am looking forward to it like you wouldn't believe. I can feel a blog post coming on.
