Every 4 years Iowan’s get a unique opportunity to meet presidential candidates and vote for them in the Straw Poll. It’s not everyday you can just meet a senator, congressmen/woman, presidential candidate. It is a process and I wish more Iowans would take part in all political matters and take everything seriously because government impacts every aspect of our lives!
What is taking place in our country these days I won’t be surprised if there is a revolt. What is taking place is mistaken for communism. Fascism, in case you don’t know what Fascism is defined as: Definition of FASCISM
often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control <early instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge
People with money are oftentimes the people in charge and they are the people who dictate what is best for us and our country. Whatever happened to the America I grew up in? The one where you were allowed to be a free-thinker and a friend to the Constitution. I can barely contain myself when I am called a ‘radical’ when I bring the Constitution up! I am not a radical! These people in office took an oath to uphold the Constitution and they have NOT DONE IT!
There is a reason corporations were given rights as if they were living beings so they could have the liberties and rights that we, as American citizens, were guaranteed to us when we were born! Why are our troops in 5 wars when our streets are falling apart and the Constitution is being violated by politicians who have allowed their personal interests to lower the credit rating of the United States of America?
Why are we still fighting the “War on Drugs”? Our ‘war’ has resulted in criminalizing non-violent people while profiting the DEA and other government entities and ruining lives to protect the pharmacological companies that have paid their fair share in lobby power? Whatever happened to the America I knew?
