Thoughts on everything from Politics to Video Games

Date: August 10, 2011

This morning in Wisconsin

I just woke up this morning to learn that the Democrats only took two of the recall elections. With the whole nation watching, we handed the state right back to the extremists. Sadly, this is the state of our nation. The majority of the people no longer understand the basics of economics. They can no longer think for themselves. They honestly believe that cutting funds to education is better for the state. They’re so glued to their Fox News – which has the largest ratings of any news outlet – they believe what Fox says is true.

The people who believe in consensus. The people who believe in human rights. The people who believe that the rich aren’t paying their fair share. The people who realize that with the slow decline of unions, middle class wages have remained stagnant and will start a slow decline. The people who realize that We the people is becoming We the corporations. The people who can think for themselves and do not need a talking head to think for them. We are becoming and, we really are, the minority in this country.

It saddens me. Just because you’re a majority, doesn’t mean that you are right. For the first time in my adult life, I actually believe that America might just not bounce back. For the first time in my adult life, I am truly and honestly scared that America will fail. It’s really sad. I love my country, but I fear the extremists who are taking it over.
