About our election 2004 by Greg Henry Waters
Ever since I left graduate school (1966) the American government has made me somewhat emotionally sick with their behavior both in public and in private. You see, because most of the decisions made in our government are half truths
They hide the truth in bills they pass in congress. The public never knows what they are doing. It is like the trucks in
Or some political action group forcing the President to make decisions that are important to the particular action group and not loyal to the nation. This is my main point. Do our Presidents act in a way that is loyal to the nation and world?
Since this President, Bush, got elected by vote fraud, last election
When Bush got elected President he won
because of the vote count in
We are still living
in the age of our civil war. When the south would not let the African Americans
vote or they bought their vote for a penny or whatever. They would not
let them register because they made all these rules. To register to vote they
had to know certain questions, and or whatever, so they would never pass the
test to get their name written on the voting records. They did the same
thing during the last election, but they just canceled the African American
Bush's Grand Father helped Hitler raise money to build his empire. So it is a wonder what Bush really thinks in his heart.
And how can you talk to someone who is 110% for Bush I do not want to start a civil war. It is so sad for me that people cannot think but only think like a TV Set and repeat what they hear. Even in music people just repeat what they hear they do not really create anything it is just like an old movie nothing new anymore.
The money that they spent on this election for me is just a waste of money. They should only allow three months to promote their party and election this election and other Presidential elections go 1 1/2 to 2 years. They say the same thing over and over again. They insult each other, they lie to each other and they change their view. I said to a friend. If Bush or Kerry are men I do not want to be a man. I think a man has a different definition of a man. I believe our view of what a man is is so wrong and men think they are men, but they are just robots with no real thoughts. This is what the election is to me. They say the same thing over and over again that it is like a TV Set or video it never changes.
When the Republicans were in NYC the police arrested young students and kept them in jail for a few days when this country has a law to protect protesters. Where are the laws now? What is really going on?
Everybody here is waiting for the next bomb. They think it will come in the next few days during the election. I do not know, but this is what people are talking about.
It is sad that the election is about big money and big connections.
This is what President Johnson did he thought about him-self being the first President to lose a war in
I wonder how history will view
I personally hope that there will not be a bombing of our people and that Kerry will get elected. But knowing the sickness in this country I cannot say this for sure. Time will tell and the world will move on and we can only watch the circus go on. When I was in
I am still looking for honest people. I can only find a few and these few accept the corruption, the ignorance and the will to have money and only money. I walk in my neighborhood, in the
So the real problem with society is the quality of its people and the quality of its leaders. I am not sure where our country is going or what the true quality of its people are? I know a lot of the problems we have go back from our Civil War. These problems are still with us. Why do both the candidates come from Yale is another question? This to me sounds like a hidden society in my country controlling our Government to some degree.
Our Constitution is based on the corrupt behavior of men. It is the only hope for our nation, the constitution is pure people are corrupted from their own egos.
Abraham Lincoln was the best example of a good President but many parts of his life our covered up and not told to the public and what he did for our government.
But if we chose a bad President and if the people have their heads in the sand, and our greedy, our nation will lose time in becoming, once again. Not, what it is supposed to be.
I think our business machine
has made this country great, like Edison, Ford, Rockefeller, the railroads, the
inventors however not the government.
I pray to the unknown God that our nation will grow in the direction it is suppose to be. If we lead the World we must decide how to lead the World? I think this issue is not clear in the minds of our leaders.
What do I think of the election? I do not know. We are a great nation because of our ability to create products. I am not sure it has anything to do with the Government. The Government seems to be a necessary evil. Only if we can find good men to rule our nation and find good citizens to work for our nation will it be a nation that the world can be proud of. We have been given the role or taken the role of the World Policemen. I am not sure this is our responsibility.
It is sad for me when
I hear people talk terrible things about my nation. If they would only understand that the common
man can only do so little with their vote.
Sometimes our system works and sometimes it does not. But I do think that the last forty years of
our Government has not been very good.
When will we really grow up as a nation?
I do not know. When will we have care takers for leaders and not
Presidents, Governors or
We need the government to keep records not to rule really
is the main purpose of our government.
But the government tries to get more power and control. The people are supposed to be in control of the government not the government in control of the people.
When will the ignorant get an education? I do not know. When will the educated act like human beings and not like educated people? I do not know. When will our leaders speak in a quiet way and be humble. I do not know.
Once the people vote in the
leaders we can do nothing of what happens in their term. We handed
them the power now we are their victims. I believe that the American public has
voted into power a very poor class of leaders in the last 40 or 50 years.
A friend said to me once a country deserves it leaders. I do not know. Someone told me once we do a lot to contribute to our own suffering. I do not know. Sometimes suffering comes to us from outside forces that we cannot control. Sometimes we bring it about for ourselves. Sometimes our ignorance and behavior brings us much suffering by not understanding the situation. How do we know what other people are really thinking? So many people lie in their everyday life sometimes having standards creates many problems. I know it does for me.
I only know that to watch these men sell their souls to the nation is somehow degrading and disturbing to me. I do not know of a better way. It is our system for better or worse. I wish I could say something to make you feel better about this or have you agree with my opinion. Then we can be friends and say how wonderful everything is.
I know our track record could be much better if we had better men in our nation.
