I don't know about the rest of the world, but here in America our children are being conditioned to make excuses instead of working hard. This is not individual Americans, but the government and media working together to control the masses and turn a once great country into a bunch of whining socialists.
When I was kid, if you were only mediocre at a certain activity, maybe sports, you were told to work harder and you might improve. Now our children are told it is okay if you are mediocre at sports, just give up if you are not happy with the situation. This is just one example of the type of bologna that the media is forcing on those willing to listen. Well, what is that same kid going to do when they are only mediocre in school, or at work, or in life? They are going to make excuses, just like the almighty television has taught them. Oh and don't worry, the government will make sure they are taken care of, right?
I rant time and time again about the American government ruining our country, but the truth is the people of America are allowing this to happen. A rebellion against our current government is far overdue, but who will step up and accept this suicide mission? It has been made very clear by the American government, over the course of recent history, that if anyone gets in the way of their agenda they will be promptly discredited or possible terminated.
It is a frustrating situation that may not ever be solved. The American people have lost control of our country to an overbearing government, and there is no clear solution to regain that control. I hear many people say we should elect different politicians, but even politicians with the best intentions must work inside an already corrupt system. I also firmly believe that most elections are just as corrupt as any other part of the American government.
Think about this, if the American people started a huge rebellion against it's government, would the government realize it's own faults and sit down with citizens to start a reform? OR Would the American government covertly assassinate the leaders of the rebellion and employ it's own military to turn on and control the citizens of America? Sadly, I think we all know the answer.....and these are the same politicians running our country and spending our tax money faster than they can collect it. We are supposed to have 'a government of the people, for the people, by the people', but the people no longer have any real input.
