America Readies to Change The Mask of Politics
Saying Good Riddance to 2020
Cristal M Clark
We’ve all been through a lot this year, but perhaps what has stuck with every single American citizen more clearly has been the unequivitable massive failures of our politics and its politicians no matter which side you are on, they have continually failed to stand up, for the We The People, you know the ones each of you serve, the people you swore an oath to serve. Instead they stood up and served only themselves and those who have lined those political pockets financially.
As we slide into the last week of 2020, every American is asking “What a fucking nightmare right?”
Nations who once respected us have watched us come apart at the seams because of our lack of leadership, men and women who talk a good game but who are greedy and lack balls.
The pandemic showed us that we have a president who is a complete idiot, but who is mentally unfit to hold office, leaders everywhere who went for inaction, finger pointing and blame, then with no notice they sprung into an action that destroyed American Lives, businesses and they did not even think twice about it. Our Economy is a wasteland and millions are on the verge of starvation, homelessness, they had no Christmas, don’t know how they are going to pay the bills that have not stopped coming in. Yet every politician in the United States- the White House, The Senate, Congress, Mayors, Governors, they all have incomes, healthcare and the ability to purchase food, you know pay for the human basics the very thing millions of American’s worked entire lives for, the things they lost because our Government and its leaders are incapable of leading, incapable of making the right choices, incapable of saving lives while at the same time, protecting the economy and its people who actually make that economy.
The inaction, the lies, where your distrust should rightfully be is with the disease and that is every single politician.
We witnessed Trump stir up distrust in science, downplay the pandemic, stir the racial tension pot and take illegal action so as to overturn the presidential election, he lost then kept losing with every effort to overturn it. He successfully divided this country right down the middle. Brought out racists and gun totting thugs who don’t give a fuck, they’ll shoot and then claim innocence or sheer suport for Trump as if that excuses everything.
We witnessed both the Senate and Congress fail to stop Trump, now because he is mad at every American who didn’t vote for him wants to strike down the next measly stimulus. He wanted more money for American’s but only asked for that as a last ditch effort to keep votes for the Republican party and himself, yet in the process he is fucking even those that did vote for him. Let’s be honest here, you can’t expect people to be able to have an income when you keep shutting things down and some businesses were forced to close for good while others cannot open at full capacity. No one took the time to think this through and it shows. $600 doesn’t even cover one months rent in most cities. American Citizens and businesses get screwed but $600 should just about cover it right?
Trump and his loyalists received healthcare no one else in the US receives when they all got Covid and they made a remarkable recovery while many American’s are still struggling with long term problems after having the virus and not having received the same health care or treatment as Trump, his goons and vile children received.
We watched the vaccine rolling out and both Democrats and Republicans get in front of front line workers and the elderly to get the vaccine. That is unforgivable, if not downright sickening, not one politician or political leader in this country deserves to be moved the front of the line because they have fucking failed to protect the citizens of this country at every single turn this year. Don’t make me remind everyone about the Kennedy Center garbage the last time a stimulus was being discussed. Every single one of them failed us, destroyed our economy, never once stood up and fought for us.
Instead they fought for themselves and those big dogs who are not hurting or destroyed, the ones who line their pockets, the people that actually do the fucking work. Cities are learning the hard way that as city managers fought for massive growth, in the end it’s turned out to be a huge failure because the rents skyrocketed to the point that people really do live paycheck to paycheck, incomes did not increase. So as evictions happen, luxury apartments will sit vacant for months, maybe even years to come.
So as we head into 2021, we are looking at a wasteland caused by our political leaders and for that, it is highly doubtful that either party will survive, the next election will not see a Trump but, will also be vastly different than we have ever seen before, terms limits are going to be pushed and I would imagine this go around it will be a successful push because American’s are quite frankly sick of these political leaders playing games with our lives.
The Supreme Court will also be changed, the courts work for us, not the politicians who put a judge on the bench, our political leaders should never have the opportunity to put a Supreme Court Judge on the Bench, ever.
While the United States Citizens were forced to watch our politicians destroy our nation and make it a wasteland, now over the course of the next four years, those same politicians are going to watch it’s citizens make changes that do away with this atrocious and obtuse behavior, the abuse of power that our politicians have enjoyed for decades, that is all going to change starting with the next four years.
You serve us, it’s never been the other way around. Your greed, your failures this year, that will never be forgotten nor forgiven and for that both parties are going to become a thing of the past as they should.
