In 2008, people voted for change. We were tired of watching our jobs get sent overseas, tired of being denied affordable health care, tired of war without end, and tired of being ignored by Washington, D.C.
In order for this change to happen, the populace voted for a 1/2 black and 1/2 white man for President. Within days of Barack Obama’s inauguration, the drug addict, loud mouth leader of the Republican party, Rush Limbaugh, shouted over the airwaves, “I hope he fails.” What that statement really meant is that Rush wanted us to fail and the Republicans bowed to Limbaugh and quickly did his bidding. Soon afterwards, crazy Glenn Beck started his revolution by stirring up hatred and encouraging racism among his followers. During the summer of 2009, the godzilla from Wasilla, Sarah Palin, could no longer tolerate being out of the limelight so she turned her back on Alaskans and quit her job as Governor so that she could travel around the lower 48 and become a money grabbing superstar. The morons responded by behaving poorly at town hall meetings and giving birth to the Tea Party Republicans.
Both domestic and foreign Corporations were pleased with the uprising of the morons because they knew that this is a group of people that can easily be manipulated to vote AGAINST their own best interests. Then a miracle happened. The Supreme Court of the United States of America gave the green light to the Corporations to spend as much money as they liked on elections. Finally, international corporations will become our masters and rule our nation. Oh happy days for the rich and greedy. Oh happy days for foreign interests. Oh happy days for the lords of the land.
This nightmare doesn’t have to happen. We still have time to take our country back.
