THE U.S. GOVERNMENT: A HOUSE DIVIDED
"A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand"
The Division Will Be Our Downfall
What the Republican and Democratic parties of this country fail to understand is as President Abraham Lincoln said, " A house divided against itself cannot stand."
The problem with the country today and not being able to get over the economic slump is not Republican or Democratic power; it is both. Two parties too stubborn to submit to the fact that each may have good ideas and work together to move forward.
Americans are becoming slaves to their own parties and as slave masters, the government; as well as its people are letting this country faulter. If they do not submit and work together, they will lose not only property and liberties, but sadly their honor as a country.
Like the Civil War which was fought on their own lands and thousands of friends and families were lost; they are at the cusp of another civil war of sorts. This civil war,however; The Union troops are made of "big business" against the The Confederacy which is made up of the middle class- poor members of society. The Union in this case will always have more tools to fight with, lobbyists and all the funding. The Confederacy will continue to lose assets, like property and financial stability; that due to the economic climate will not allow for financial sovereignty. The Confederacy will lose again, if they don't start to hold those elected officials accountable.
As Lincoln put it on March 4, 1861. "We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection."
The parties divided most certainly will be the economic downfall of this country. The Republican Americans and the Democratic Americans must once again work together, because in the end, they are all Americans and members of one country. A country once revered and admired by all.
The fossils that are Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner and the likes are holding this country at a stand still. It is time to move forward and have their voices heard from the mountain tops. The civil war ends here and now.
Election time is always just right around the corner, the rhetoric and divisive push will begin with a vengeance. As hard as it may be, it is time for the American people to unite as Americans, not as party supporters and make informed decisions. Don't follow the crowd, follow the facts.
Help tomorrow bring new hopes, dreams and resolution instead of worry and indecision.
