Sports in Politics
During my daily political fill I am constantly hearing people ask questions like ” Will the 99% win?” from MSNBC and from FOX I hear ” Has the ‘so called’ 99% loss yet?” And I ask myself when did Americans politics become about winning or losing, other than in elections and trying to get bills passed. In my opinion people are going about it all wrong.
People are name calling and saying “MY PARTY IS BETTER THAN YOURS!!!” Everything going on in congress and surrounding congress should not be like fans rooting against a rival team during rivalry week. There should be a camaraderie and a willingness not to necessarily work together but a willingness to work together without any grudges. People like Jon Huntsman should be leading in polls and people like Newt Gingrich or jokes like Herman Cain shouldn’t even be considered.
We, the American people, are missing our foundation. We’ve been overcome by greed, selfishness, stupidity, and a disregard of our neighbors and fellow Americans. We need to put our differences aside. Whether it be politics, sports, or whatever. We need to retake control of our government and tell those people on Capitol Hill they work for us not big corporations. And finally let’s not allow our differences divide but, let them bring us together so we can shape a better America for future Americans.
