Apathy at it's Best
So much of what I have held dear regarding our Land of the Free has turned out to be false. Motives for our fights, reasons we approve one bill and not another.....seem steeped in rationalites often unrelated to the true or intitial intent. Even more depressing is the fact that I don't know enough and even when I seek information out, there is a good chance it may not be accurate. So much that happens in Washington is the opposite of transparent.
I am a believer of learning what you can and making the most intelligent choice. I just don't like the choices. Even if I was charged with leading our nation.....I find myself at a loss for how to fix what is broken. I am concerned that the culture of our government is broken to a level that cannot be repaired without major change.
I don't say this to disparage our current leader Barack Obama. I think many of his ideals could have worked with support. Investment in the argument and polarity between parties makes true progress impossible.
