Poverty rising? Everyone is suffering.
Political view's aside for a while, what do you really see when you walk down the street?
For me it is men and women standing in business suit's with a sign saying "I need a job, Can anyone help?". I think it hit's home to alot of people knowing you cant go into your wallet and pull out a little change, because at this very moment every little bit of "change" is being swallowed by debt, bill's and taking care of your own families'.
Families' all over the world are struggling to pay bill's and get out of debt, and it is going to get worse. People need to learn to spend wisely and keep "our" money in small business's', instead of these huge corporate companies. If we keep produce buying into our local communities we may just have a chance at surviving this horrible economic crisis.
Instead of putting all your money into McDonald's for food, go down to your local farmers market and buy fresh produce. In the long run it will be beneficial to you and your families health. Why do we keep funding such companies when truly they dont care about anything except how fat their wallets are getting, and where does that leave us? It leaves us struggling to pay the bills.
Im not saying that all corporate companys are to blame for this economic crisis, i believe george bush is to blame and i know that will all come out soon.
We need to start creating jobs in america, why pay $6.00 per hour at a fast food place when you could pay the same to someone on a farm making healthier foods so that there isnt so much disease in our country. Why are we busy spending billions of dollars putting rockets into space when we could be exploring the ocean for cures to diseases?
Why is america all about money and not about helping its own people? What happened to a neighbour helping a neighbour?
Instead its Crime ridden because for some people stealing is the only way to survive. We all know that there are answers to these questions that i ask, but why is everyone so afraid to speak up?
Our country needs a national health service so EVERYONE has health care. Stricter gun laws so the wrong people cant get there hands on them. Stronger borders so people who arrive LEGALLY have a better chance of being processed, than people who jump our borders and drugs are harder to get through. Birth control for our children so they dont use abortion as a birth control. Free medicines for our elderly and terminally sick. Community centers funded by our government for our kids to fix up and use as a safe hang out. Is this too much to ask for people? I dont think it is, especially if you are the people paying the taxes!
I also believe that america needs to start helping HERE instead of 3rd world countries. We have children in america that need homes, food and need to be adopted.
People predict that it could take years to fix this mess that we are in, i dont think so.
If everyone puts their bad attitudes aside and everyone learns to work together we could make america beautiful again.
Lets hope that in this economic crisis everyone survives and people learn to respect one another as people, not just for how much money they have.
